Who would win in a fight - Jack Cayman or Travis Touchdown?

Alright, everybody. This is my very first debate, so I'll go first. (I'm for Jack Cayman.) Now, honestly, if you've EVER played MadWorld, you know how tough Jack Cayman is. He has a chainsaw for an arm, and gorilla-like strength. Now look at Travis Touchdown. He's got a beam katana...and that's about it. Jack Cayman fought 4 werewolves, "frank", a mech controlled by an alien, and a pimp. Travis touchdown fought a brain in glass, an irish guy, and a child in a flying car. You get my point....

Government is not necessary to build roads.

I often hear it said that it is necessary for the government to build roads, implying or even stating that the private sector cannot do it. My goal in this debate is to refute that notion. By roads I am not merely talking about a small private side road but major roads that can be used by anyone. The first round is for acceptance only all other rounds are debate but no new points should be introduced the last round. If my potential opponent is confused about any aspect of this debate I would ask...

Will social networking take english back to its dark ages when spellings didn't exist ?

mysterygirl1
Theoretician101

In Chaucer's era, there wasn't any particular spelling for each word which made reading a burden and resulted in anarchy. After years of evolution English finally had spelling and now instead of evolving we are doing the exact opposite we are going towards the dark ages not the golden one on every front. Now, it seems like the end of human rule on earth is near....

Women Equal to Men in Sport?

WaterWater
Burncastle

If women are inferior to men in sporting ability, why do we forbid them playing? If they were allowed to be part of a men's team, then their supposed inferior athletic ability would be evident and there would be a ligitimate reason for disallowing female participation i.e. they're evidently not good enough to make the cut in a men's team I argue, If women were truly the inferior athletes, then this would be evident in a mixed-sex team. The less talented players (women, for this arguemnt's sak...

The entire monetary scheme (economy, trade, finance) contradicts itself.

I can sum up monkey making in two sentences - watch me: Work for others. Others work for you. People wonder why the cost of living is sky rocketing since the old times - inflation. Inflation is caused by a few things: printed money, people at top hoarding all the money with unbelievably unrealistic pay checks for the little work they do compared to say, a soldier "fighting for our country" who get brains scrambled, beheaded, lost limbs, here in the U.S, sending jobs overseas, paying cel...
