Haiku Battle.

This is a haiku battle. The challenge is simply to make more interesting haikus than the other person. We can either have set topics or not. Thus, the first two rounds are to get acquainted with one another, and the last three will be for actual haikus. The PRO and CON positions mean nothing. I only chose PRO because green is a nicer color to surround my name and avatar than red. For those who don't know, the structure of a haiku is 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line, and...

Kesha has no true talent in terms of singing

talent (n) a special natural ability or aptitude If you've never seen Ke$ha sing live don't bother. We have singing greats out there like Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, Prince, Kelly Clarkson, etc. and then we have the people that teenagers listen to and end up on the top 40 stations. Which category does Ke$ha fall under? The second one. We have people with true talent in whatever they do like the contestants on SYTYCD and American Idol, albeit some of them weren't all tha...

Voters should be required to post their reasoning behind each vote they make.

Yraelz

I like debate. I like debate.org. I think it is a really cool idea. However I find myself often dissatisfied with the voters. In debates where I feel I have clearly won its not so bad because to some extent I can justify my loss in my head with the thought, "Wow... those people are idiots!" Its when I'm debating someone of equal or similar skill level to myself that this annoys me the most. To lose a debate that I am unsure of how I did on and personally feel was close is o.k. in itself. But...

Writers debate

Vi_Veri

This debate is for any of you book readers, or writers. I felt the need to open this debate in order to expose creativity and entertainment. The point of this debate is for both debaters to write out a short story. The first person will start out the story, with a certain set of characters and a select few settings. In every round the Pro will present a problem in their story. The Con will then continue this same story with the same characters and settings (where rules apply), and fix the pro...
