After doing two research heavy, long debates I have decided I want to do shorter debates. So I'm starting a debate series of topics that require little or no research. The format will be more of a banter or dialogue than a research driven thesis.

The debates will consist of a character max of 3-4k and will start with Short Debate Series in the title.

They should be quick short and fun. This will also (hopefully) facilitate voting. My silly "Water is Not Wet" debate I had not too long ago was in this format and it received more vote traffic than I have seen in a long time.

Just wanted to share. If you want to debate or have any ideas for topics or such please let me know!
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!

I may want to take up the challenge of one of these debates, depending on the particular challenge. The format, at least, is appealing.

As it should be! People might be more inclined to debate if its more casual and shorter.

That space junk should be removed by the UN? You'd go pro? I'll put that down.
