Does violent games or media impose a threat to the children and their behaviors?

Omnipotent
Lickdafoot

Okay, this is my first debate, so I'll be pretty new to its rules, but be understanding please ! So, does violent games or media impose a threat to the children (or yet all its players) in a mean of them having negative influences from them? In my opinion, yes. These little things that anyone comes in contact with, can and probably will influence the person with or without their conscious awareness of being affected. This may not be the only factor that drives some people to real danger...

Shakespeare's works should be abridged and enhanced to make them more enjoyable

Shakespeare may have written some quite good plays, but few would disagree that most of them are far too long and boring. That’s why they should be edited and spiced up a bit at the same time. Here is an example of what I have in mind: Romeo &...

Best Rock Songs from 1990 - 2005

Lickdafoot

Thanks to Lickdafoot for agreeing to this challenge. Here we both post music from rock bands of the 1990s and early 2000s (till 2005). This song from Nirvana is called "Smells like Teen Spirit". Before it was released, alternative rock was largely confined to underground clubs but this one helped Nirvana break into the mainstream and is considered revolutionary.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTWKbfoikeg<...

I've seen a couple debates on rap songs so I thought this would be fun.This is for rap songs that have a bit of deeper meaning than the typical ho's, money, drugs. Best songs win!I'll kick it off with the classic "Get By" by Talib Kweli heres a snipet of the lyrics:We sell, crack to our own out the back of our homesWe smell the musk at the dusk in the crack of the dawnWe go through "Episodes II," like "Attack of the Clones"

Physical Books are superior to E-books

Lickdafoot
Andromeda_Z

Physical Books are superior to E-books. In this debate, I wish to prove that books are superior to e-books. There are a number of reasons for this. I can touch, feel, and smell a book; which are all part of the unique experience. I can make notes in a book. I can loan a book to a friend. I can read them where there is no internet. Physical books have had a larger impact on our world than e-books. Physical books offer a wider variety. I will expand on these issues and more in the...
