Elves and Misinformation

In his historical book on Elvish culture J.R.R Tolkien described Elves as being tall, thin, long-haired men and women with fantastic vision and lightning quick reflexes. I have not found this to be the case. The elves as described my Mr. Tolkein and as portrayed on film appear to look like this...

...while the Elves I've encountered appear more like this...

They  drive cars, jeeps, and loud trucks, rather and horses. They've also, shot at, chased after, and laughed at me countless times so... yeah. That whole thing where they're discribed as honorable and kindly forest-dwellers who will rush to a man's help at a moment's notice is a bunch of poop.
