Greetings my fellow friends. Make I ask why are you here at Debate.org and what have you learned about life or people since you came to this town.
I surely would love to know. Holla back now.

College doesn't start for a few months, job doesn't start for a month or so, no real means of transportation (apparently a car isn't enough, you also need a license go figure), etc. etc.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Why Are You Here At DDO ? *

Do it right please...
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!

This is oddly true considering how the people on here got their education from school...

I often have trouble sleeping/get bored. Because I don't have a TV, the internet occupies a portion of my time. I left for a while, but came back, and might leave again... depending. I sort of feel bad for being such an (unreasonable) @sshole in the first few days back though.

DDO is a refuge, and I intend to wade between its tired ranks in the muddy sea, sir. :)

lol I think it says more about the different types of education and their level of engagement with that education that people had, but ironic nevertheless.

Because I can't talk politics with my wife. We are polar opposites. If I say it's black she will say it's white. There is nothing to discuss politically. The only thing we agree on is how to raise children and finances. The two most important aspects of a successful marrige.

I am currently carrying out a court ordered three year sentence for breaking the law in Florida (I became involved in a drug trade when I detained while participating in an initiation into a college fraternity, the fraternity later came under investigation for trafficking of drugs into middle schools in the Southeast portion of lower Miami-Dade county) and I must participate in the activities on DDO in any way I can in order to complete my sentence and be up for parole after the first 18 months.....

You know, normal stuff.

I'm here to debate. I always learn things from debating a subject; it's like being forced to do your homework. The debate aspect of DDO is being edged out in favor of the social networking aspect, so site is not so much fun any more.

That sounds pretty close to things around here.

I'm here to show you why your opinion is sorely wrong.. and I'm here cuz I find debating fun, although i prefer 3v3 in real life, this is great too.
