With AI then I can see an Andriod Revolution, but without AI not so much.

Me too. My point is does he want to consider every AI a robot?

I believe there's a blurry distinction between graffiti and street art that's set to arbitrate--somewhat arbitrarily--which situations can be called a crime or not. Whether street art can be called graffiti is another debate which might be worth doing.

Cars: On Balance, Electric Cars Pose a Big Net Benefit to the Environment.
Economics: The U.S Should Trade for Goods Regardless of Who They are Trading With.
Education: That Public Schools are Commonly Substandard.
Entertainment: Walt Disney is Most Likely Cryogenically Frozen.

Funny: It is Most Likely the Chicken Came Before the Egg.

This would probably end up being a serious debate.

Health: Our Current Healthcare System Should not be Changed.
Miscellaneous: On Balance, Porn has a Net Positive Impact on Society.
Movies: "The Interview" Should not have been Released.
Music: On Balance, Boy Bands are Detrimental to the Population.
News: That Fox should not be Trusted as a Viable News Source.
People: A Person has a Moral Obligation to Help Anyone in Dire Need.
Philosophy: Believing in God is Logically Sound.

*Yaun*

Places-Travel: That MH370 was Hijacked.
Politics: Barack Obama has Downgraded the Quality of the U.S.
Religion: Monotheism is more Likely than Polytheism and Atheism.

This would be a difficult debate, for Pro.

Science: That Science Should be Heavily Explored Despite Possible Consequences.

This might be interesting, or something similar. For example, that the potential for catastrophic vacuum decay in the Higgs boson gives us good reason to refrain from making particle accelerators of higher energy levels (I would be Con).

On a similar note, I might like to debate whether the Large Hadron Collider was a waste of money (as Con).

Society: That Full Equality is Almost Impossible.

What do you mean by "equality"?

Sports: Some Professional Athlete's Pay Should be Automatically Given to Charities.
TV: That Tobacco Adverts Should be Removed from TV.
Technology: That a Robot Revolution is Entirely Plausible.

You mean AI taking over the world? Yeah, that's plausible, but not very likely.
