This is a war game scenario. State in the comments why I should debate with you. If you are going to be busy and forfeit don't be my opponent.

Students should be able to grade their teachers

Grade the teachers! I think we as students should be able to grade our teachers. Not because they are mean, how they dress or so on. We should grade them on their performance of teaching. Are they explaining the work they want us to do? Are they actually teaching us something valuable and not wasting our time? In that form of grading, I do think we should be able to. I don't think it is fair how there are teachers who have been teaching for so many years and all their students fail. That is a si...

For-Profit Prisons should be Banned

shrimpster00

30 years ago, the government decided to see if the public could run prisons better than they can. Luckily I am here to tell you that for-profit prisons do not fail. The companies put lots of care into their prisons, making them flourish and grow to become a huge success. Therefore, , For Profit Prisons should not be banned. There might be a bit of rehabilitation in government prisons, but in private prisons, they educate the prisoners and they graduate hopefully passing the GED test to minim...

"But in gamers, it lengthened only by 10 percent" (Trudeau). What the stat is saying is that people how don"t play action games/any games have a slow reaction time when multitasking and that gamers have a faster reaction time to multitasking. What this means is if you play video games you do stuff faster t...
