In crowded places, the obese should be made to walk in single file

brian_eggleston

Firstly, I would like this to be a politically correct debate and I would be grateful it my opponent avoided using derogatory terms such as: ‘fatso’; ‘hefferlump’; ‘slobberchops’; ‘pig-in-panties’; ‘porky’; ‘lord of the pies’; ‘salad-dodging lard-arse’ and ‘big, fat, sweating pile of stinking blubber’ when referring to a gravitationally challenged person.

California should adopt New York's ban on sugary drinks

I would be more harmed than you if we broke up.

Oryus

Resolution: I would be more harmed than you if we broke up Both parties share burden of proof. We can only use quoted song lyrics to make our case (sentence fragments are ok but complete sentences are better) and must cite the song and artist for each lyric.

Thats the day I knew you were my p...
