I have seen a lot of posts on Iran go by this past week.

I think most of those people would like something about Iran attacking or being attacked.

I have also seen some great jokes go by. A _______vs________ on who can come up with the funniest jokes based upon a topic picked by the judges might be fun to read. Maybe a poll could be added at then end of it for people to vote who was the funniest?

THis is one I was thinking of at work today (don't ask) - Does True Love exist?

Is there the one special person, the Mr or Mrs Right, that we are just destined to be with. Or is love nothing more than a reaction, chemically no different than eating large quantities of chocolate.

COuld be interesting :tu:

Regards, PA

^^I know, I commented on your blog about an hour after I posted this. Spooky :alien:

I'd like to take up the debate my self, but I don't think I'm going to have the time to do it justice :hmm: I'll be watching with interest though.

Suggestion: Are aliens male and female ?

I don't think this would make a long enough debate to be honest :no: and considering we do not know if Aliens even exist its not really workable.

Wal-Mart: helping the north american economy or stomping on the little guy.

^If it was slightly more generalised instead of being specificly against one organisation then it could make quite an interesting debate which I would consider setting up.

The topic could be "Is the spread of mulit-chain outlets such as Wal-mart worth the economic positives when it forces the "little guys" to go out of business?"

If any are interested in debating such a topic or something similiar please let Lottie or myself know.

The above brought to mind the whole subject of "outsourcing."

Many jobs are sent abroad from America, esp in the s/w industry. The companies claim this actually helps America's job market, other calim it only takes jobs away.

I think this could be interesting, and I still am not certain what side of the issue I side with.

I believe that could also make an interesting debate and would be more than willing to set up it.

Anyone who wishes to participate please let me know and I shall set it up.

========

Businesses: Based on Greed or Need?

Future of Technology: Optimistic or Pessimistic.

Da Vinci Code: Any Truth or All Gibberish?

Contraband: Possible National Threat or not...

*cough* and jen :sk and jen :sk:P

Is there any way to bulk up the topic at all? Maybe adding a why/why not sort of thing such as Should Laptops be allowed in school or do they aid in cheating, plagiarism etc....

Scorpius those are some fine suggestions, thanks!:tu:

I don't know if these have already been done, but I have some suggestions:

(If used, feel free to re-word them as I'll come across too abrupt (for lack of any other term))

* Claiming unemployment-benefit - Should it be allowed after shooting out so many kids?

* Abortion - for and against

* Should anti-depressants be used ONLY as a last resort? Yes/No
