Besides religion and politics, what other topics tend to be debated/argued about the most?


If you want your next family event to be sporting, but don't want to fight about politics or religion because they've been overdone and are now boring - what other topics might start a spirited debate? Why have a polite gathering when you can have a free for all? What topics would you bring up - remember NOT religious or political issues, something else to mix things up.

sort by best latest

    In the right group of people that probably could become a very heated argument - then there's always coke products vs pepsi products.

    Of course the question is tongue and cheek ;), but I do wonder what book I might stir up a controversy over, perhaps how much I think 50 shades sucks... or Harry Potter was ridiculous - that should rile some people up! :)

    NOTHING brings on a more visceral response than religion and politics. However, there are some TOUCH topics outside of the purview of religion and politics.

    All great ideas, of course they'll come back to politics most likely, but I think everything does anymore!

    I don't even have a smart phone yet - I wouldn't be very good in that debate lol. Hadn't heard about the school monitor issue - that's a good thought.

    It sounds like you come from a family of fairly reasonable people then - it must be nice :) some of our family members would argue about anything.

    Yes me too, hence the question was asked in humor :) we have a lot of family members who can debate anything - and I do mean anything!
