The use and abuse of language and words itself for good or bad purposes. Read 1984.

Just an idea though.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

I believe 'Argumentative' should be spelt 'Arguementative'.

Not a great start. Why the hell come to the pit, breeding ground of stupidity and icy hot jokes, for advice on a sophisticated and interesting essay?

It isn't going to be sophisticated, I'm writing it. I just need some ideas.

The importance of ginger pubes in soceity.

The ethical conflicts of conservatism.

The extent to which Shakespeare has affected the English language.

No, it's spelt argumentative. If you're going to be a grammar Nazi, do it right.

How about an essay on abortion? Current events and very easy to argue both ways, there's a load to write about.

On my GCSE paper it was write a letter arguing why a music festival should not be held in your area, picture your self as a middle age stuck up women and rant. I had a laugh hehe

EDIT: Hang on, I spelt it right

My mistake, I wasn't expecting someone to act like a wanker to the TS.

edit: There seems to be some crossing of the wires here...
#12
Though ginger pubes are very important to society I don't think my professor will think highly of that one. I guess I'll just go with abortion like everybody else.

It's most likely a "persuasive" essay.....

Thesis: Pussy bands like Fall Out Boy should not be listened to.

or something like that.

Stay away from issues like religion and hardcore beliefs like abortion. To write a good paper either way on a topic like that would require HOURS if not YEARS of research, and it's much easier to prove that a band can't play difficult riffs than to prove that a baby is not human when it's heart is beating at 5 weeks Pretty much, as a debater, we all stuck to an unspoken rule of "debate topics that aren't likely to prompt fights afterwards"

Or write that the town you live in needs to reduce gas taxes. Find out waht they are, find out what they are in other counties, find out your city budget, etc.

Or write that everyone needs to stop using incandescent bulbs in their houses.

Or write that people need to use synthetic oil in their car engine.

Of course, when someone points out your idiocy you have to quickly find an excuse for it. You didn't do it on purpose, give it up and admit you were wrong.

Absolutely. If it's argumentative, it's in the Pit.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
#22
Do it on any major current event.

Examples: Gay Marriage, The war in Iraq, Government Policies, death penalty, censorship in music, illegal downloading, the negative and positive effects of technology, obesity, and abortion.

Your avatar reminded me of something.

Threadstarter, I recently did a persuasive speech on the uselessness of recycling. It's a great topic.

BNP - Racism or "Freedom of Speech"?
I take it you're in the UK?
I hate the BNP
I'm asian and Muslim. The other week I got one of their leaflets through my door saying "Islam- the biggest threat to the UK since blah blah"
If I ever catch the mother****er who posts them I seriously will cause them grevious bodily harm
Anyway
Just talk about when freedom of speech goes over the line
