Ajabi

You are not allowed to adress the poem of the opponent, simply write an exposition of the poem that you have chosen. The poem should not be too long, and...

SarcasticMethod

In this debate I and my opponent will debate the claim that homeopathy is a valid form of medicine.

Stick to standard English grammar and spelling, but don't call anyone out on their spelling, as it would slow down the debate. Also, try to write responses like you might design a skirt: long enough to cover all the details, but short enough to keep you excited. 1st round: Definitions 2nd ro...

Piano Battle

RevNge

I will not make this debate acceptable until December 20th, but I'm going to put it up earlier so hopefully more people will take notice of this earlier. The framework is simple. You can submit any music of your choice regardless of genre, provided that it is only on piano with no edits and no other instruments (including vocals). There is a time limit of five minutes for the first four rounds and no time limit for the final round. The voting criteria is as follows: Arguments: General perf...
