I choose hills since humans can easily reach them to make a picnic.

I only have five minutes to post?! Oh you have got to be kidding me...

--Argument 1: Safety/Excersize--

For my first and only argument (gaahhh 4 minutes left) I will be talking about the safety mountains bring.

Say you live in Indonesia and a tsunami is highely likely in you area. However, the tsunami would only range to 55 feet tall (link in comments). A mountain would easily be able to block the water, while the hill (size of which you did not specify) likely could not, or take a serious beating.

Furthermore, mountains provide the ultimate challenge for hikers to test their physical strength. Hills are usually only good for a short walk or something.

--Rebuttal I--

You only list one reason why hills are better than mountains, and not a neccesary one at that. A picnic may be a fun thing on warm sunny days, but you can go to a park, a lake, the beach, etc. to do that. Mountains provide more important things, such as protection from natural disasters.

30 seconds left. I believe I have provided more advanced arguments than pro and therefore have met my part of the resolution. Meanwhile, 20 seconds left. I HAVE TO HURRY!

Mountains are better in so many ways, I mean that's my opinion considering I live in the mountains in Colorado. There is just so much more to do, such as hiking, hunting, backpacking, climbing, skiing, and mountain biking. There is no way anything is better then the mountains.

Mountains are much better, they are prettier, much more fun, and I live in the Colorado Rocky Mountains so ya.
