    How can it be pointless if it exercises the mind?
    I think it also keeps a good blood flow due to the general heat of debate exciting a person.
    This would be likend to an Extreme sport which seems pointless yet to the sportsman is most enjoyable.

    I quite like this idea. Considering I know f*ck all about f*ck all, it would be nice to be given an opinion. Although I must say that I am entirely capable of arguing on about f*ck all for hours at a time. Take last night for example, I argued with Chris for two hours about whether or not he had seen King Arthur. I was of course, as always, correct. He had seen it, and fallen asleep part way through. I suppose that would also mean that he was right as well, seeing that he didn't see the part that he'd slept through, although I would never admit this to him, as he must always believe that I am all knowing.

    I can argue about anything really, just for arguments sake.

    How the hell could this possibly be a good idea? If one has no conviction in a subject, then how can they defend their debates? Wouldn't it be rather boring to have an emotionless debate in which no one believed what they were debating?

    Whoa no, I ain;t arguing against her, no way, it's not possible to win I tell's ya

    Can I be ref?

    However cannot the same be said of a debate, or arguement where you argue the point you actually believe in. What possible difference can it make when you are asked to argue from a position you don't agree with.
    The difference being that if you believe something you will debate harder and more passionately. If you are simply told to do it the fire and passion you will not have sir.

    I'm actually now confused as to what I'm arguing about

    Seriously
