Okay,
How we argue Existentialism you can discuss Heidegger's Being and Time and I will experience Daseinistic Nausea?

Four rounds limited to images only, no text.

How about we debate the pointlessness of having formal debates?

Hi Evil Squirrel Overlord.

1st - I have read about you. Only you went by the name of 'Evil Mutant Attack Squirrel of Death'. Or maybe it was one of your operatives.

http://www.manbottle.com/humor/EVIL_...IRREL_OF_DEATH

2nd - Asteroid (s, other planets and moons) mining, pro.

a) Resupply of earth with materials we are converting to manufactured goods and rubbish. Including water for desert areas.
b) Advancement of technology, to be able to accomplish the tasks, without war.
c) New jobs, businesses and economic growth.
d) Opening the borders of the known world again and lessening the feeling of pressure on society that leads to things like nuclear or biological war, those being the worst.

That's 4 pros to be starting with. Your turn.

Thankyou LadyGreen

Con:
a) Besides Helium most other minerals are still abundant on Earth and a lot cheaper to get to.
b) Those asteroids belong to the USA and any other country who tries to claim them is violating our rights.
c) They will be needed for target practice someday.
d) Because I said so.

Hi Evil Squirrel Overlord.

pro
a) We are running out of helium? Cost of acquiring material will be counted by job, business, economic growth and creation of new products.
b) Race you for them, I get there first and I have the mother of all hilltop advantages.
c) New jobs, businesses and economic growth will be created designing and manufacturing the weaponry needed for the target practice.
d) Well my dad's bigger than your dad and says your wrong.
