The best musical instrument is the piano.

Kierkegaard
Amos

There are many musical instruments, each of them with their particular perks and letdowns, but all of them simply fall short when in comparison to the piano. I have several reasons as to why this is true. First, the piano requires not only the most talent (both musical AND physical) but the most effort as well to successfully play it well. Another reason is that you can do more with the piano than any other instrument. With instruments like the cello, viola, electric guitar, etc, you...

The Lord of the flies in "Lord of the Flies" was most likely an illusion.

Raziel
left_wing_mormon

I'm asking Con to present his argument first since [s]he has the burden of proof. I will go on to explain the resolution. To understand the reference I'm refering to you have to read or have read William Golding's "Lord of the Flies". I will be arguing that the lord of the flies in the book was not a concrete physical character. But rather an illusion or abstact concept so to speak. Con will be arguing that the lord of the flies was an actual physical creature. With that being said, Please add q...

Rap Battle Lannan13 vs. LaughItUpLydia

LaughItUpLydia
lannan13

Rules: We have 3 rounds to post raps, starting in round 2. No line limit. The raps MUST be original freestyling. Swearing is not permitted, but too heavy x words equals non-creativity and it's also boring when you're just reading the raps. The goal is to dis the opponent the best using literature analysis (innovative metaphors, pick up lines, similes, etc.) while keeping the flow and rhyme. Don't take anything really personally; it's just for fun. We haven't done this in a while so it may...

Music Battle

tejretics
FourTrouble

This is a "music battle," where each debater puts their selected songs or pieces of music, and the judges post RFD's on who has the the most beautiful music. There must only be one piece/song per round, and debaters are free to say a few words on why they think their song is great. Debaters are also welcome to comment on why they like/dislike their opponent's piece, or anything relating to their opponent's pieces. In each round (except this one), debaters must (1) post a link to their song, (2)...

On Balance: Schools Should Teach Fine Arts to the Students

Briannj17
minddrag

While many schools are stopping the art programs such as music, drama and art it is my belief that we shouldn't stop giving students the option to take these classes at school. It is therefore my belief that "Schools should be capable to teach arts and music to their students" Definitions School: an institution for educating children. https://www.google.ca... Should: used to indicate obligation, duty, or correctness, typically when criticizing someone's actions. https://www.google.ca......

You get a call one day from a girl who’s stood you up three times. She says she’s back from out of town and asks if you’d like to get a drink on Saturday, and since you’ve never passed a stove you didn’t touch, plans are made. You meet at a bar. To your surprise, this time she shows up. You order a beer, start making small talk, seems like everything’s going well. You get up to pee, and when yo...

STALIN
MrV666

In this debate, me and my opponent will argue who was the best general of WWII. I will be going with Heinz Guderian. My opponent must also choose a general, however since I have chosen a German general, Con can not choose a German general. In addition to this, the general he chooses must be from the European Theater.Rules:
