The duodecimal system should be used in society rather than decimal.

Sensorfire
SteveHeist

The duodecimal (or dozenal) system, or base twelve, is superior to decimal, or base ten, for a number of reasons. Ten has only 2 and 5 as non-trivial factors. Twelve has 2, 6, 3, and 4. Thus, elementary fractions such as 1/2, 1/3, 2/3. 1/4, and 3/4 all have convenient duodecimal represenations, being 0.6, 0.4, 0.8, 0.3 and 0.9, respectively. This gets rid of problems of repeating numbers that would be encountered particularly with 1/3 and 2/3 in decimal. This means common fractio...

I belive in the death penalty for many reasons but here are the big ones for me: 1. Death penalty costs the government less as opposed to life imprisonment without parole. Proponents say despite expenses incurred by the government from imposing capital punishment, death penalty is still cheaper compared to the costs of life without parole. Although there is no contention that the cost of the former is high, life imprisonment is accumulatively higher given the expenses for food, health care a...

Current prisoners should have the right to vote.

Anoid

I am challenging the user, Anoid to this debate. Here are some rules of the debate:1) No ad hominem, personal attacks, or insults2) The total number of rounds minus 1 should be used for argument since I am not using round 1 for debate. This is to keep the number of rounds used for argument even between us.3) The last round that is used for argument should just be rebuttal to your opponent's arguments and/or conclusions. No new arguments are allowed in this roun...

Android Is Better Than iOS.

Nathaniel.Clay
Ignis_Vulpes

Android is clearly better than iOS, because it has better tampering capabilities, and Google Play charges no tax.Android is clearly better than iOS, because the ability to modify the software is substantially easier. It's not exactly supposed to be modified, but if you were planning on it, there are websites to visit (after getting root). You can install android apps that are root-only on your android phone, run androidOS on an old iPhone, and even...
