An argument against
2012

I already started this argument elsewhere...

An argument against
Movies and TV in 3D

You get movies like Avatar (in 3D) that people think is good, when it's just a flavor of the week.

An argument against
Avatar: The Movie

The CGI in this film was not enough to keep me from writhing in my seat at the way the story was told. The story didn't just blow goats, it was so contrived and so obvious. When you can sit down in a movie and know exactly what is going to happen, and have no surprises along the way then you have an unsuccessful film.

An argument for
10 Best Picture Academy Awards

It's a way for more good films to get exposure to a wider audience.

An argument against
Wall Street Bonuses

Performance based pay can increase productivity in mechanical or straight forward tasks...

Performance based pay leads to decreased productivity in tasks requiring simple cognitive reasoning...

So, where do Wall Street and Finance Industry professionals getting huge bonuses fit in? Are they getting paid huge sums to put square blocks into square holes - or are they being paid to try to figure out how to think more abstractly?

There is something foul in the way we reward work.

TED talk in the link about this.

An argument against
TSA Passenger Screening Manual Leak

Harmless error. The versionl that was released had been revised six times before being distributed. Obviously, not something we want to make a habit of, but also not something to get worked up over.

An argument for
An army of Zombies & an army of Vampires VS. an army of Ditkas?

Easy Answer - DITKA.

An argument for
Tiger Woods

He's one of the greatest golfers of all time.

An argument for
Obama's Afganistan Strategy

Obama is not committing the United States to nation building. He said that in his speech and he said that these plans. So, to "fix the country" should be taken off the argument. The objective is to dismantle, and disable Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The link is only part of the speech.

An argument against
2012 (the Movie)

The remaining 2 hours are not tolerable.
1 Cred0 Crud

An argument for
2012 (the Movie)

First hour is very effective - fun, scary, a good ride.

An argument against
Google's Information Domination

It's dangerous for us to have all of our eggs in the Google Basket.

An argument against
Zombies are scarier than vampires

Zombies are slow and stupid. Vampires are quick and clever. Easy. Vampires every time. The real advantage that Zombies have over Vampires is they have the numbers. But, since this Argument doesn't specify it's hard to know what's scarier. If it's an army of Zombies versus a Vampire, the army of Zombies is scarier. But, if it's an army of Zombies versus and army of Vampires - the army of quick, clever, multi-special powered Vampires wins every time. If it's an army of Vampires versus one Zombie - fuhgettaboutit.

An argument for
Large Hadron Collider

It's finally operational!

An argument for
Lady Gaga

I think her nose is sexy.

An argument for
Beethoven's 9th symphony

It's a beautiful piece of music.

An argument against
Bears 09-10 Season

We need an offensive line.
1 Cred0 Crud

An argument against

1 Cred2 Crud

An argument for
Lady Gaga

Her music is seemingly the next Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, or whatever flavor of the month. But, her look is a mixture between high fashion and 1970's NYC alt-rock scene. She's an interesting mixture of styles.
2 Cred1 Crud

An argument for
Lady Gaga

She is incredibly talented. Check out this live acoustic version of "Poker Face".
2 Cred1 Crud

An argument against
Premium Gasoline

It's bourgeois.
0 Cred5 Crud

An argument for
Sarah Palin

She's a fascinating woman who will make a great talk show host on Fox News.
1 Cred7 Crud

An argument against
Bacon

It's an obsession! Food fads are not good for the culinary arts.

One day we'll look back on bacon like we do bell bottoms or leg warmers.

Get over it!
1 Cred6 Crud

An argument for
Søren Kierkegaard

He is the name sake of one "Soren Pedersen", my room mate and long time friend.
0 Cred3 Crud

An argument for
Credding

It feels like there's a kindred spirit out there who sees things the same way I do... and it's life affirming.
2 Cred0 Crud

An argument for
President Barack Obama

There are a lot of 'leaders' out there who made decisions (were not 'wishy-washy'), and don't we all kind of wish they didn't? I'm thinking of George "I'm the decider" Bush, Adolf "I heart Eugenics" Hitler, or Pol "I killed about 1 million of my countrymen" Pot.

To be what I consider a good or great leader is to not dictate, it's to lead people. Sometimes you lead people from the front and sometimes you lead from the rear.
4 Cred1 Crud

An argument against
Crudding

Being Crudded hurts so bad!
1 Cred1 Crud

An argument for
The Legalization of Marijuana

Prohibition by the government spurns illegal activities, and is outside the purview of what a government should do. So, it's a personal freedoms situation.
2 Cred1 Crud

An argument for
Free Condoms in High Schools

Abstinence only programs have proved ineffective at curbing teen pregnancy.
3 Cred1 Crud

An argument for
1984

It's double plus good.
2 Cred3 Crud

An argument against
Hi-Def Television

Hi-Def television, along with high quality home speaker systems are making less people have the theater experience, which is a shame because seeing a movie in a full theater far surpasses seeing it in your home.
1 Cred3 Crud

An argument against
Jack's new car

It costs more money than not having a car.
2 Cred0 Crud

An argument for
Jack's new car

It's much better than my truck.
2 Cred1 Crud

An argument for
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Satire is important in a free culture.
4 Cred1 Crud

An argument against
Coke Zero

The commercials for Coke Zero are as bad as Microsoft commercials.
1 Cred0 Crud

An argument for
Goat Cheese

Goat cheese is miraculous.
1 Cred4 Crud

An argument against
Bacon

It's a cop-out for flavoring something. It's overused everywhere. Any hack of a chef can make anything taste good if you either put bacon in it, or a ton of butter.
2 Cred6 Crud

An argument against
Bacon

Do you know the daily recommended serving size for bacon?

It's 0. None. You are recommended by nutritionists to eat 0 units of bacon a day. It's terrible for you.
5 Cred2 Crud

An argument against
Atlas Shrugged

This book has given countless of selfish assholes fodder for their argument of selfish asshole-ness.
