If you are an intellectual (and regard yourself as such), post a comment below with a proposal for a debate. Anything.

Religion. Philosophy. Economics. Literature. Art. Logic. ANYTHING!

ESPECIALLY:

Foreign Relations
Political Theory
Political matters in general

Send me a challenge! If it's something I'm totally ignorant about (like Dragon Ball Z, or comic books other than Watchmen, or the correct way to lobotomize a penguin -animal cruelty is WRONG!) I'll probably not accept because neither you or I would enjoy the exercise, but seriously, let's be creative here.

I'm also down for story debates. I especially like those.

I'll wait for your challenges.

Look at it this way: I'm an easy target! I use big words and argue obscure concepts in ways that make sense to no one other than me! You're practically guaranteed to win!

Marijuana Cures Cancer.

I'm the only one I've seen debate this. Needs more attention.

I hate to say it, but I am totally ignorant about that. I know a lot about pot -about how freaking awesome it is- but I don't even begin to know how to go about debating this. However, I don't think you should have to have cancer as an excuse to smoke pot. Everyone should try it once, just for the experience.

I'm typically up for a debate or 2 on education policy. For instance, we ought to implement a different marking scheme in tests - confidence assessment marking. Various other areas of educational policy exist of course, such as designing education around spaced presentation as opposed to massed presentation (methods of revision) due to arguments based on memory retention.

There's a whole host of topics of interest. PM me if you're interested and we can work something out.

Just invent a resolution and instigate the debate. I'm down with education reform. You may pick your side and your issue.

I don't think there is a single issue in the world on which we disagree, but if you want to attack anything with your nihilism ray gun (lol, btw.) just tell me what you want me to argue. I'm happy to argue for things I don't believe in or support.

Ok, think of something to argue about. Post it here. I'll look forward to the proffering of your creativity.

Although I can troll. I think I'm a rather good troll. Others disagree... but they are wrong... perhaps.

So... let's find something to disagree about then. Imagine that! Only on DDO can two people actively seek out conflict in such an [faux]ostentatious way! rofl The novelty is overwhelming.

Think of something, and I'll tell you if I actually agree or disagree with it. If you really push hard enough, I do lean (ever so slightly) to the left.
