I'll try to take a stance on this debate. I doubt subjects like say music would be useful to scientist. Rules- No semantics, forfeiting is direct 7-point win to me. No new arguments or rebuttals in round 3...

Most gamers aren't really gamers.

When I see people on YouTube calling themselves, "real gamers," the first thing I usually see is hundreds of videos of them playing Call of Duty, Minecraft, and other games that are some of the first things people they hear the word, "video game." Although the true definition of a gamer is someone who plays video games in general, I see it a different way. I believe that a gamer is someone who experiments with all kinds of games, whether it's an unknown game from the NES, or even a more modern g...

Should Compound archery be included in the Olympics?

I think they should include compound archery in the Olympics because shooting a compound bow is nearly as challenging as shooting a recurve bow, and most people that shoot a bow now shoot a compound bow instead of shooting a recurve bow, so limiting the olympics to only a recurve bow is limiting the amount of competitors in the event....

Aesthetic will be more important than graphical quality in the near future.

Back when Pac Man released, graphical quality was a huge importance because ground could be covered quickly, but I contend that diminishing returns will take hold in the next few years of gaming. Due to that, companies (Triple A's included) will be forced to focus more on aesthetic rather than graphical quality. In that regard, I ask the con: will aesthetic (the art/look of the game) become more important than graphical achievement (720p, 1080p, 4K, better lighting engines, etc.)? 1st roun...

Businesses Have a Right to Discriminate

Jblock

In light of the recent news on a specific Indiana pizzeria refusing to cater a gay wedding, the argument needs to be debated: do businesses have a right to discriminate? I will press the argument that private businesses should have a legal right to choose who they do business with and that it is not the position of any government to interfere in their freedom of choice. Who would like to have a civil debate?...

Law banning the second employee from the train engine.

On Thursday, Amtrak commuter 188 on the Philadelphia Northeast corridor derailed due to speeding to fast on a 50 mph curve. They (the train) was going about 106 mph. It is not known at the time of this publication but it is possible that the train derailment happened because of the engineer fell asleep during this operation. Not only that, there is only to be only one trainman to be in the locomotive. Federal law permits only one trainman in the locomotive so if he has a heart attack or falls as...
