Difference between MTB and road bike riding

I was in several conversations about the advantage and disadvantage of using Road Bike and MTB.

1.  MTBs are definitely heavier, have more friction on the road, and more wind resistance.  Definitely not for long distance riding.

2.  You tend to be lazier when on MTB;  you use lower gears, (very low low gears, even the granny)

3.  You cant finish a 100 km ride on MTB unless you are super strong.

4.  With a road bike you tend to be more patient, you less low gears, stand up and seek for your strength.

From my conversation with Alex Castillo who says he works at Tokyo Tokyo at Pasong Tamo, and Bert, who is from Marinduque, who recently went on night riding from Angono to Dalahican to go home to Marinduque for a high school reunion
