Are dogs better than cats?

PrivatePeaceful
Okapi

I feel like dogs are better than cats. Firstly, whereas cats are lazy and rarely need to be played with, dogs understand humans better. They comfort you when you need to be comforted more than cats do. Also, dogs are less aloof than cats are which makes them the perfect companion. Although they do tend to be a little more misbehaved than cats do, they are more friendly, lovable and overall better. I in past have owned both cats and dogs, and with experience, I'd choose cats over dogs any day...

World War One was Morally Ambiguous

H501
3_LITTLE_birds

I believe that the Germans are unfairly portrayed as "evil" in World War One. While this was certainly true in World War Two, WW1 had no "good and bad" sides. Please note that the argument is on the topic of WW1, aka the Great War. I don't want people saying "Oh, but the Germans killed Jews!"...

should students be allowed to wear flip flops

1. They expose your feet to bacteria, viral, and fungal infections. Any time your feet get particularly filthy (i.e., any time you wear your flip-flops in public), they're likely covered in some nasty things likes Staphylococcus, a bacteria that can irritate the skin on your foot in the best case or lead to amputation in the worst-case scenarios. (It depends on whether you have open wounds, like microwounds from exfoliation during a recent pedicure, or actual cuts, and your state of health when...

Rap Battle

Briannj17
yomama12

Serious debating always is the best, However there is a thing to say about all the rest, Like rap battles that we don't see enough, Where people really show that they're tough. I like my opponent to start with a bang, Something to make us all say "Dang!" Because they're going to have to give it their all, Otherwise I will make sure that they fall. I usually have rules, So all the ignorant fools, Will not make stupid claims, There are quite a list of names But let's go all out r...
