in reply to My favorite logical fallacy:

Appeal to Popularity

Me:
What's the project?
PHB:
It's something completely revolutionary.
Me:
Um... yeah. So what is it?
PHB:
We're going to maintain a database of all our products and let our customers see it online!
(PHB pauses for applause)
Me:
Wow. That's a revolutionary idea. So I'll put together a LAMP server and we'll be live in $arbitrary_timeframe
PHB:
Lamp? What's that?
Me:
It just means that the site will be run on Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl.
PHB:
No, it has to be done in ASP.
Me:
What? Why?
PHB:
Because ASP is better; it's what everyone uses.
(insert sounds of one of my eyes being popped out of its socket by the pressure in my head, followed by the sound of the PHB being thrown through a window)
