“I hold, in my hand, the entire Internet!”
“What, in this tiny USB key? Impossible. The Internet is ever-changing.”
“This device holds not the data of the Internet, but the fractal algorithm which can iteratively generate all the content that will ever be on the Internet.”
“I thought so.”
“Damn, Bill’s late for work.”
“John told me he was close to getting fired.”
“Isn’t it a bit of an overreaction?”
“Not for a job with these responsibilities!”
“But he just does nothing, all day.”
“He holds down the button that lets the Internet go.”
“I guess you’re right.”

There was no way I could win: my opponent had already decided the outcome and taken the initiative.
I tried all my usual methods: logic and constructive reasoning.
It was hard, but in the end, I won an argument on the Internet!
