The Cost Benefit (CB) of using a microwave exceeds the CB of using a oven in relation to hot pockets

Me and my opponent agreed that the first round should be a simple introduction to ourselves and our arguments. I'm Sean, and I disagree with my good friend John. We were discussing hot pockets, and he suggested I cook it for 45 minutes in the oven when I could cook it for about 3 in the microwave. Our arguments will begin after the first round. In order to prevent some superfluous crap, one rule is that we will be allowed to question each other off debate (on the sidelines) about s...

PoeJoe should immediately comply with the cease and desist order sent to him by debate.org

PoeJoe

Earlier today, poejoe received a letter from Phil (owner of this website) ordering him to cease and desist from his part in the website (now closed) "debatedotcom.com", for trademark and copyright infringement. He has 48 hours to comply before it goes to the "next step". Poejoe is not compromising, I suggest he think otherwise. It is my position that he should immediately do whatever Phil says or face the consequences....

* Expected= That men should do it otherwise of their own will/want. EG, a girl getting angry at a guy for not putting the toilet seat down. Men and women have near the same issues with toilet seats, so women should not expect men to put the seat 'down' for them. Men can do so out of courteously, however, it should not necessarily be required....

America is the greatest nation in the World. As I am disappointed by the why our "leaders" have handle this country the past 8 years, and even beyond that, I can still say I love my country. That being said, why doesn't America provide free health care to all of it's citizens? My point here that will be debated is that Health Care is a human right, and America should not have profits leading our health system. We are the only westeren civilized nation that uses profits as the main motivat...

The problem: Our economy is in crisis. The US government over the span of the last 100 years has perverted the purpose and responsibility of the United States to meet their own selfish and greedy desires. It all started with the criminalization of Industrial Hemp i.e.: Reefer Madness, DuPont family, and corrupt elected officials. Because of decisions that were made 100 years ago, events have been set in motion which have led to the biggest crisis of Capitalism in our nations history. I submi...
