We have been invaded.
Yes, among us, in our very homes, live a breed of sociopathic monsters. These diminutive, misshapen imps have infiltrated our homes, wetting our beds, and eating our food. They insinuate themselves into our lives with callous demands for food and attention, foisting themselves on o...

This is in response to this thread: http://www.debate.org/forums/science/topic/21157/ A brief explanation of the subject can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollow_Earth Hollow in this case does not refer to the fact that there are caves and mines in the outer part of the crust, but to an alleged vast central space inside making up a significant fraction of the Earth's total volume.

I have recently debated "Ignorance is Bliss," http://www.debate.org/debates/Ignorance-is-Bliss/3/ and proved that it is not; and I just finished debating whether a bird in...
Inevitability of War War, in all its glory, seems to be a constant feature in the human landscape. From the first pile of poo thrown on a hirsute competitor by a presumably worked up proto-ape to the sophisticated nuclear powered explosive devices dropped on competitors by the advanced and enlightened homo-sapiens, the only thing that has changed is the manner and scale of killing. I trotted over to Wikipedia to check on the wars fought over the last century, and was suffi...
Group A: Lickdafoot vs. Chrysippus

First round is for acceptance only. Details of the tournament can be found here: http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/15899/
I greet my worthy opponent, and thank her for this debate. This will be the first time I've debated Lickdafoot, so I am looking f...
