The ultra-serious debate thread

Since Kavar's seems to be hitting ghost town status as of late, and with no solutions clearly in-sight, it is our duty to debate... on what to debate on.

Seriously, I'm out of ideas.

Okay, bad idea.

Debate the dilemma of the Watchmen novel: Was

right to destroy New York in order to prevent GLOBAL THERMONUCLEAR WAR? If he didn't, it's a near-sure bet that's what would have happened. But he did, and now everybody's dead. Y/N?

1. Florida has warm beaches.
2. Warm beaches mean there exist beach babes.
3. Beach babes are good.

4a. Therefore Florida is good.

Whereas;

1. Alaska is cold, dreary and dark.
2. The beaches there are very cold.
3. The babes there are covered from head to toe in clothes and don't go swimming at the beach, which is not good.

4b. Therefore Alaska is not good.

...

From 4a and 4b, it is clear that the two states cannot be tied as worst, since one is Good and the other Not Good. Logically, Alaska must be the worst state. QED.

That was too easy, jaymack!

We can see Russia from our backyards when in Alaska, therefore, we live in a constant state of patriotic fear.

But then again, beaches also have beach bums.

I'm trying to keep serious. However I'm snickering even as I type this.

I have a few:

31 flavors baskin robins--which one is objectively the best based upon...popularity (though it's been like 5 years since I last went there so I'm a little behind on this)

Which 5 NES console titles were the absolute worst?

Which brand of electrolytic capacitors most destructively blow up when connected in backwards. (My money is on either the Mallory brand, or the Princeton brand, maybe NEC on a good day)

Tay Zonday, can an internet youtube star (chocolate rain) make it big for reals? How?

Has hollywood lost its edge?

I'm not too much for TV, but, are shows beginning to run out of ideas like they did, say in the '70s?

I know nothing about either one...well, not absolutely nothing....let's just say superficial at best and accounts from friends in either case, which might as well be hearsay.

I'm going to have to stop you there. Speaking from experience (I've been to 3 or so within the last year), Baskin Robins has 32 flavors. It's a conspiracy!

Lolwut, dude?

(watches as the seriousness of this thread turns into water-like liquid and is poured into a toilet ready to flush)

Ehh, actually, at least every one of its flavors had been subject to change and replacement at one point of time or another. So I'm a hafta disagree there on account of a chain could only have 31 flavors available at any given time.

Only 31 flavors of its entire inventory? Seems reasonable to me. So thus it is entirely possible to have 31< flavors in the corporate inventory while only keeping 31 flavors at each individual restaurant. Technically it isn't actually more than 31 flavors. It's still 31 flavors.

Every location is called 31 flavors, every location has 31 flavors.

HEY! You're one of those conspiracy theorists aren't you? I'll get you, you little monkey! I'll be damned if you'll *ever* hamper my profits!!!!!!

I'll get away with all of it, dammit! Nothing comes between me and my m$ney! Because I'm a stereotypical CEO who only sits around all day managing my business and spending all my spare time thinking of ways to screw you over! HAHAHAHAHA!

Yes.
Depends.
none and soon?

I have noticed, despite my "vacation" that a lot of the "serious" discussion has moved back to the Senate, which sort of went inactive/underactive w/the creation of Kavars.

No.

No... No.

The humidity of florida is nearly unbearable, the beaches are overpopulated with college kids, most of which are dumb jocks who have invented idiot sports to test who has the larger member, or old people, and for several months during the summer, a species of bug lands on any open air, white surface available by the millions, and proceeds to copulate constantly.

Florida. Is not. Good.



It is all that is left unsaid upon which tragedies are built.

This is another thing of serious debate. For example, now that Achillies, and Garfield JL have been banned from Kavar's, does that mean the controversy for which to debate has died down? It certainly looks and seems that way.
