Celebrating birthday is a burden of craps we own.
Isn't it so annoying to wish everyone on their bdays, and being hurt if someone forgets to wish us back on our own bdays ??.
I dont cerebrate bdays, its a waste of time, money and resources that add no quality in lives of others. It only boost our ego and greed up... I mean being ME for any reason seems ridiculous.. I would rather spend this day volunteering the foster home or with the people who are less fortunate..
Your thoughts ?? Agree or disagree ?

You must remember one thing and that is that birthdays give people happiness. Though it may not be any sort of accomplishment it makes people happy just as going to theme parks and watching television does. Social psychologists at oxford have determined that roughly 40% of happiness comes from one off events like these. So if something makes you happy it is almost never a waste of time as that should be the goal of your life. To always be happy.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro never fulfilled the BoP and didn't respond to Con's counter-arguments, so arguments to Pro. Conduct to Con for Pro's round forfeits.

Reasons for voting decision: Forfeiture; conduct to Con. Spelling and grammar also to Con (seemed as if Pro was rambling/typing extremely quickly). Convincing arguments also to Con, as Pro did not quite give any (along with a lack of round two). No sources used, so tie in that sense.
