The Pterosaur/Dinosaur Distinction, or IS EVERYONE BUT ME A FUCKING MORON??!!
Recently a youtuber by the name of Jacksepticeye (go check him out, he's hilarious www.youtube.com/user/jacksepti… ) played an update for a hunting game which added dinosaur to it. Now so far he hasn't made any mistakes while talking about the dinosaurs (we'll see with subsequent videos whether or not he sticks to this trend). Partway through the video he asks the viewers what their favorite dinosaur was. The comments then became inundated with people saying that "pterodactyls" were their favorite DINOSAUR. That was several hours ago. Since then I have spent most of my Youtube time trying to educate these people who keep insisting that both pterosaurs and even Megalodon were dinosaurs. No matter how you explain it to them, they just say "But they're really old and lived with the dinosaurs so they were dinosaurs!" No. No they FUCKING weren't.
Has this sort of thing happened to you? Please share your idiot education stories.
