Start thinking

Post by Hope on Wed Jul 02, 2008 8:20 am

Everyone put on their thinking caps. Its time for some new challenges!! I was wondering if I thought of something that I thought would be a good debate topic, but left the side choosing up to my opponet would that be acceptable.

I don't have anything as of yet, just wondering if I could put some ideas out there and then debate the side that isn't choosen if my topic is choosen. Eesh, even I am confused!!

Hope Its not quite within the rules as they stand, but I see no problem in you suggesting debate topics if there are not many coming forward. I think what might be an idea is having a list of possible debate topics compiled so a challenger can just pick 3 from the list.

I think some entertaining debates would be some "less-serious" ones that don't have just a simple "yes-no" answer. Some options would be "What was the best episode ever in Lost", or "Best Season", or "Most surprising moment", or "Most heartbreaking death".

Just throwing some options out there.

Nino,

Usually we throw out three debate topics and choose a side for each. This gives the champ some flexibility in choosing what he/she wants to debate.

That would be fun, as we dont have any new lost episodes to debate, I'm sure everyone would like a nice light one. Or maybe worst episode, or worst flashback episode. I'm sure AC knows what I'm alluding to here. Very Happy

possible lighthearted debates

Is Hurley reall crazy?
Rose knows more about the island than she lets on?
Michael finished his work and so he could die?

I think yes - Hurley crazy! yes - Rose knows more and No the island let Michael die as he was useless in doing his work.

I would like to see a more open debate.
Possibilities:

1. Did the island disapear or time travel?
2. Who does Kate truly love...Jack or Sawyer?
3. Did Ben love Alex...yes or no?
4. Does Aaron belong with Kate...yes or no?
5. Who is a better game player? Widmore or Ben?

Both Jack and Boone had TERRIBLE flashback wigs! As a hairstylist, this was absolutely horrifying. Wink

Will the chosen character names in Lost (John Locke, Hume, CS Lewis, Ford, Jeremy Bentham etc) play a greater part in the plot, or were they chosen to subtly reference the characters traits and motivations?

Boone had the very worst flashback wig

I thought Ben's plugs to fill out his hairline in "The Man Behind the Curtain" were pretty bad, too.

Ok since the challenging is going a bit slow, I'll propose a challenge.

1) Best episode in lost (Excluding eason finales) - I would go with Walkabout

2) Best season in lost - I would go with season 1

3) Best Flashback story (All of their centric episodes) - I would go with Lockes

wow, HSM, I hope that your debate topic number 3 is chosen as that would be interesting. Though Hope would have to tell you her character's choice so that you argue why your character's choice is better than Hope's choice!

But it would be a good read!
