Dakota-Hiltzman
TheEpicGlassesGuy

Background information 1. I am a college student in his last week of class prior to finals. 2. It is currently 3:02am and I have a 9:00am class in a few hours 3. I am on the verge of making an A in two of my classes, and every bit of studying I can do at this point will help. Arguments 1. There are 5 rounds, a character limit of 8k, and a 24 hour time limit. I'm subjecting myself to a lot of torment while still having a lot on my plate. 2. I'm not going to learn much from this debate...

Some definitions: Sport- An activity involving physical exertion and skill that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often undertaken competitively. Best- Better than all others (any way can be used to prove this, I do not have to prove that it is better in every single way than every other sport, just that overall...

Technology is destroying children's education.

Technology is a good thing. You're supposed to use technology for research and a way to learn. There is nothing wrong with using it for entertainment. The problem with children is that they abuse it. They use the technology for more entertainment rather than for education. Therefore they're not learning as much as they actually could if they used the technology for educational purposes. I myself am only 14 years old, but I use the technology to learn new things. For example, using my home comput...

Cannabis should be legalized

DarthKirones
jacobie1121

"Cannabis, commonly known as marijuana, and by numerous other names is a preparation of the cannabis plant intended for use as a psychoactive drug and as medicine." This is my definition of Cannabis, or what we will be calling it; Marijuana. I will be arguing Marijuana should not only be legalized medically but for recreation purposes as well. We are not talking about legalization in a specific country, just legalization period. The rules are as follows: 1st round: Acceptance 2nd round:...

Battlefield Vs. Call of Duty

derplington
DerKing

Make sure to read the entire argument before making a statement against it. I also only want a contender who commonly plays at least one game from both series. (Don't include the campaign in the argument, I'm arguing about multiplayer gameplay). Battlefield and Call of duty are both really awesome game series, but which is truly better. Yes, the Call of Duty games bring in much more cash, but I'm going purely off of game play here. Im routing for Battlefield. I think that huge maps overru...
