Short Story Battle

The best musical instrument is the piano.

Kierkegaard
Amos

There are many musical instruments, each of them with their particular perks and letdowns, but all of them simply fall short when in comparison to the piano. I have several reasons as to why this is true. First, the piano requires not only the most talent (both musical AND physical) but the most effort as well to successfully play it well. Another reason is that you can do more with the piano than any other instrument. With instruments like the cello, viola, electric guitar, etc, you...

The Lord of the flies in "Lord of the Flies" was most likely an illusion.

Raziel
left_wing_mormon

I'm asking Con to present his argument first since [s]he has the burden of proof. I will go on to explain the resolution. To understand the reference I'm refering to you have to read or have read William Golding's "Lord of the Flies". I will be arguing that the lord of the flies in the book was not a concrete physical character. But rather an illusion or abstact concept so to speak. Con will be arguing that the lord of the flies was an actual physical creature. With that being said, Please add q...

In this debate, me and my opponent will argue who was the best general of WWII. I will be going with Heinz Guderian. My opponent must also choose a general, however since I have chosen a German general, Con can not choose a German general. In addition to this, the general he chooses must be from the European Theater.Rules:

Rules: 1 joke per round, enjoy. Little Johnny watched his daddy's car pass by the school playground and go into the woods. Curious, he followed the car and saw Daddy and Aunt Jane in a passionate embrace. Little Johnny found this so exciting that he could hardly contain himself as he ran home and started to tell his mother. "Mummy, I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, and then he helped...
