the streets are amazing:)

powerful, random memorising, thought provoking funky lyrics (:

I would like to thank Megan for posting this argument.

I will start with some definitions

legend- a table on a map, chart, or the like, listing and explaining the symbols used (dictionary.com)

I assume my opponent is referring to the Mike Skinner who is a singer as opposed to the Mike Skinner in NASCAR.

As we can see from my definition, a person cannot be a table on a map, therefore Mike Skinner cannot be a legend

OK..firstly

you picked a complete irrelevant terms of word knowing you just completely know this is not linked
there are many terms linked to the word legend.. Including a short factual based story.

Its a bit a waste of time and your purposely picking on 1 word that is not established to my opening statement...
zach12

Con

Mike Skinner is not a factual based story either

Ha. that was an example... My debate wasnt based on the definitions it was based on mike skinner the vocal singer
from the streets.. Obv you dont know much about him so you divert this debate into irrelevant definitions
Please stop wasting myself and your time by trying to conclude something which has no link

Mike Skinner has only been playing since 2000. To be a legend in the sense you're talking about would take much longer. Also, None of his songs have ever been number 1 spot material and only a couple songs made the top twenty. One of his albums did make number 2 on electronic charts but nonetheless, he has a long way to go before he can be considered a legend.

my stance on this debate stands clearly as this

americans do not know mike skinner and his popularity as compared to england

and english people cannot vote on this site making this unfair!
If english people could i think i would of won this debate hands down(:
simple as that.

hi feverish i must agree (:

mike skinner is better known from england his popularity has been considered more... legendary .over here.
&& you need a mobile number , i tried it.. but it didnt work in needs to be a 10 number mobile , ( and in england mobile numbers are 11 ) stupid :( only americans can vote

Ok, but id like to state

my arguement was never based on the definition of a "legend" , the streets are a legend because mike skinner has overcome difficulties in his life he became a majot sucess in mant different countries.. He has been called a "legend" in accordance to magazines and newspapers.
so my arguement still stands.. the streets have been around for nearly 10 years
Mike skinner is sucesful, well known and is looked up to.
clearly making him a legend in anybody who listens to him eyes :)

Hi, I'm brand new to this site and being from Birmingham Uk this debate caught my attention.
I can't vote at the moment (UK mobiles have 11 digits so I can't enter my number in the confirmation box) so I'll just leave my opinion.
I thought Con's argument based around the definition of legend was pretty pathetic but clearly americans are unlikely to consider Skinner legendary as The Streets probably aren't as well known over there, in Uk he has had 2 number 1 albums and one massive no1 single as well as a bunch of top tens.

If anyone has any advice on how i can confirm my identity please let me know.
thanks.

Lmao

its so good to see "matture people that can put their opinion through and be really intellectual about something.

This debate as stands the opponent "zach" was min informed of the concept of this debate
it didnt regard the word "legend" it was simply inputed

the opponent then before pro -longing his arguement made irrelevant meanings for the word "legend" on dictionary.com... knowing that the phrase and definition he picked was not relevant.

Thirdly opponent stated

Mike Skinner has only been playing since 2000. To be a legend in the sense you're talking about would take much longer

^^ false statement this is completey on the contrary

wilkpedia states a definition regarding legend
is a narrative of human actions that are perceived both by teller and listeners to take place within human history and to possess certain qualities that give the tale

Mike skinner pre recorded his song before 2000, his songs were admirable passinate and he has prolonged his dream of recording music since the age of 13

also
His album, Original Pirate Material, has been described as one of the most authentic voices of British youth for many years.

The fact it was recorded in his bedroom at his mother's house in Birmingham has become part of the legend that has begun to surround Skinner.

copied from bbc news..

clearly clarifies my whole debate, and puts it in persepective (:

There needs to be a character minimum, not a maximum. This is pathetic, and is one of the reasons this site is going down hill.
