Definitions: Sales tax- a tax the government charges on the sale of items. Income tax- a tax the government charges on the recipient of income Rules: 1. No trolling (bringing up...

Ranged (con) vs melee (pro), which is more fun

yejuneyoon

What's more fun than good old hand-to hand combat? Ranged attacks are safe, but don't give the same amount of thrill and exhilaration as in a melee combat. Games should take this fact in account and stop making so many shooters and rather make games which have close quarters combat, such as Injustice and Mortal Kombat....

usefulness of history for us

Learning history isn't useful for us as times change and the old mistakes of the gone can become the correct decisions of the now. Also, as none of us are political leaders on debate.org, I don't see the reason for us to learn history. What do I care if Hitler killed some Jews? Hitler's dead, how is he going to help me?...

Listen up you stanky pieces of shite, it is time to be edumacated in the ways of le internet. No matter what I pose as an argument, I will win because I have chosen the funnier of the two options. Don't believe me? Google Wheels from the Burger King Kids Klub and see for yourself. Believe me, I LOVE Deadpool. It is arguably one of my favorite movies/comic book series. But c'mon peoples, think about it. Wheels is in a FRACKING WHEELCHAIR!! Deadpool may be a heartless bastard, but even mercenaries...

rosario334477
really1234

My classmate says that gay people are a disgrace. I said that gay people can get married at any time whether people like it or not. Its their choice who they like. Its like saying when you like someone and some else is saying no your not allowed to date them you have to date this person because everyone dates him. You don't even want to date him but its the rule right... no its not. Everyone likes their own things from a sock to the person they want to be with....
