...from serious debates, lol. Hopefully I got people's attention, but I'm sure that most people saw a twist coming from before they even clicked on this.

But really, I've grown very tired of doing serious debates about common issues, so I'm only going to be doing friendly debates of fun topics (though I'll still do energy or environment debates whenever I get the opportunity). While I still intend to take those debates seriously, the topics themselves will not be the typical serious debates that you always see 500 times a week.

I have listed a few different topics that I'd like to debate, so people can sign up or even offer different ideas. Please note, that I won't be starting any of this until around January, since I want to wait until after the election and holidays (otherwise, you'll just get a bunch of forfiets).

Resolved: Zac Brown is a better country music singer than Taylor Swift (Pro) - F-16 has already claimed this.

Resolved: Spongebob Squarepants presents a greater risk to society than Patrick Star (Pro) - OPEN FOR CHALLENGERS

Resolved: Meg, Chris, and Stewie are not Peter Griffin's biological children, from Family Guy (PRO) - OPEN

Now, I had already agreed to debate Danielle on either the legalization of Meth (me as CON to legalization) or to Alcohol is safer than Marijuana (PRO). So far, no challenge has been issued and after I agreed there has been no more talk of it on my wall. I really don't want to debate anymore, but if she still wants to, I will accept as I said I would do it (though it would have to wait until January).

Also, others should feel free to consider interesting debates to do with each other.

Peace out.

Naw, DDO doesn't pay me quite enough for that.

Yeah I was real excited about serious debates back in '07/'08, but it lost its appeal after several months. The voting process can be frustrating and I could be honestly devoting my blood sweat and tears to something more productive. I come on DDO for recreational reasons...

Alright then.

If I think of anymore interesting topics, I'll post them in this thread.

Thought of another one I wanted to do last night.

Venus would be easier and more successful to terraform form than Mars (I take Venus, my opponent takes Mars).

Ima originally claimed it. So long as he's still up for it, it is his, but if not, it will be open for any.

I did leave, and will likely be leaving again. I came back temporarily at the request of Koopin to see how things were. I'm doing a few debates and will be deciding what to do.

You're still going to conduct the elections right? Oh, and could you do the Political Compass chart of DDO again before you leave?

Maybe, I think you're just trying to give me things to do to keep me from getting bored and leaving again.

Also, all debates (except for the Venus v Mars debate, which can be found here [1]) are open to challengers. So the Family Guy and Spongebob ones are looking for victim, er, challengers.
