Do We Really Need All The Education We Get Today?

Moderig

You know that day when you always go to school, and learn things that your friends consider "boring?" Well, then it must be. In my opinion, a good percentage of what we learn, is something we never use. Why do you need to know about King Tut- when are we going to use that information? This just wastes a good percentage of our time, and it's also something we'll never use....

Would prison sentences be more reasonable if all judges were required to spend a day in prison?

Dannyx

I think it would be fair if a judge was required to spend a day in prison before sentencing one to prison time. If that judge (who I'm assuming has never been to prison, otherwise how would they become a judge) was required to spend a day in prison before sentencing one would make for a more fair sentence because in my own opinion, after that Oklahoma cop got 263 years in prison for rape, I don't think it's fair. The guy is a horrible person, yes, but how is he supposed to learn from his mistake...

NSA Spying

"At least in Europe, we consider the right to privacy a fundamental right, and it is a very serious matter." European Commission President Jos" Manuel Barroso stated at a news conference in 2013 ("20 Great Quotes"). One would think that this would be the same for the United States, since it is thought to be the country of freedom and rights, but one would be gravely mistaken. The United States National Security Agency (NSA) is violating the privacy of every U.S. citizen and U.S. ally. They are t...

The Republics Clone Army Is Far Superior To The Imperials Storm trooper Army

Seanyboy
Strategery

Clone Troopers are FAR superior to the Storm troopers in almost all ways. Their armour and vehicles are the only thing weighing them down (in the armours case, quite literally). Lets not forget first of all that technology wise the storm troopers may be advanced only because a lot of their weapons are vehicles are based of the clone armies technology. For example the AT-AT is based off the clone armies AT-ET. The clone armies are put into their own squads and trained to hold each other up and wo...

Does heavy/angry music contribute to or prevent suicide? (Pro=Prevents, Con=Contributes)

diarrhea_of_a_wimpy_kid

People say that heavy or angry music, like screamo, punk, or emo, contributes to suicide. They say it is "crap". Some even say it's not even music, it's "just noise". But who wants to listen to happy music when they're depressed? It would just make them feel worse. Heavy music provides something that these people can relate to. When they have no one and nothing left in their corner, so to speak, music is their release for the pent up anger. Their favorite bands are the only ones who "get" them,...

Cannabis should be fully legalised to over 18's.

ThewordofGod
kasmic

Resolution: cannabis shouldn't be illegal in the UK. Definition/meanings: Fully legal. No limits on growing it. Available like alcohol, though with a ban on advertising (which I would argue should be the case for alcohol, in case anybody is confused). I will ask the challenger to put forth their reasons first. This is because it seems to me that depriving people of rights, Liberty, property, freedom, the ability to work in many professional careers, and the right to be secure in their...
