Agricultural Taxation

johngriswald
LunaEques

I Affirm that Agricultural, because of its negative environmental impact due to greenhouse gases and other forms of pollution it produces is a negative externality. Thus by economic principles, Agriculture should be taxed in the amount of money that would clean up the amount of pollution it produces, or in the amount that would subsidize a positive externality that removes the pollution agriculture produces. Given: In this debate the emittance of greenhouse gases and other forms of pollution...

It has been years since i've played but i believe it has always been an unfair assumption that World of Warcraft ritualistically produces virgins. ----------Contentions----------- 1) My view on this moot has led me to believe that it is not actually the game that is increasing the number of virgins aged 18-30 but, in fact, it is the people who have the characteristics that would be found in those of of a "post-pubescent virgin" are actually drawn to this type of game. They require an outle...

The SA-X is the most panic-inducing video game enemy from a non-horror franchise.

I firmly believe that the X parasite mimicking Samus Aran, the SA-X, from Metroid Fusion on the Nintendo Gameboy Advance, is the number one most frightening and panic-causing enemy from a non-horror game series.Reasons1) It constantly hunts you throughout the game, fully equipped with all of your Power Suit's abilities, while you have to run around the space station, almost powerless.2) Since you have Metroid DNA, you are very weak to col...

We are born from stars > Proof Inside <

We are born from stars; our experiences are captured by what we call photo receptors. These photo receptors existed before Man, animal, plant, fungi, bacteria, even stars. They exist today, after billions of years ago, to allow us to take this world for granted. Here's proof: http://snag.gy/5lMdo.jpg...
