When passing by someone in a hall or isle, should one do so turning one backside to them or crotch?

Youdontknowjeff

This is a question of etiquette. There are of course situations where one may not prefer to turn their backside. However I am keeping this to encounters between decent people with honest intentions. I say it is appropriate to turn ones backside to someone when passing by them in an isle or close hallway....

Debate.org should have an actual competition using provided topics

finn.b14
subhapriya

Debate.org should have an online debate competition involving topics provided by the site staff because it would be a good way to find the best debaters on the site and to encourage debates on topics other than god, American politics and pornography. I would be very willing to help implement and maintain a competition such as this. Does anyone disagree with this idea?...

Resolution: I would be more harmed than you if we broke up Both parties share burden of proof. We can only use quoted song lyrics to make our case (sentence fragments are ok but complete sentences are better) and must cite the song and artist for each lyric. We can't use a lyric from a song already used. Opening arguments: If things should ever turn out wrong and all the love we have is gone, it won't be easy on that day. [1] Do you remember when we met? Thats the day I knew you were my p...

SlimeSquasher

Global Warming. It is our biggest issue. I didn"t choose world peace because we were always be fighting. For as long as we have lived, we have fought. And yet, we are still alive and "healthy". Global warming, on the other hand, is a new problem. A new problem that isn"t going away. Our ice caps are melting, raising our temperatures and killing hundreds of arctic animals. By raising temperatures, it"s evaporating more water, making the ground dryer, making it harder for plants to grow. Less plan...
