    First, flame bate is not flame bait when it is predefined flame bate (a TOS thing). We have it here. But do be careful.

    I'll start...

    HubPages sucks.

    HubPages truly is the best, kindest writers' site on the planet.

    Climate Change is a fact.

    Climate Change is a bunch of crap.

    We are lab rats.

    We are not lab rats.

    [If any enthusiasm, I'll add to this in the next 3 hours.]

        Kind of like a debate, which I am not good at.

        Can I be a black lab, 'cause I don't like rats?

          You may not.  Because rats are wonderful creatures and everyone really likes rats deep down.  And dogs are noisy nuisances that should be banned from the world.

          (Did I do that correctly, PDS?  Not sure how to do a flame war without getting burned OR being uncivil)

            Dogs are man's best friend, wilderness. Rats aren't even on that short list.

            Dogs rule over rats, cats, and brats.

              Brats, maybe.  But never the rest - give me a beautiful, cute and friendly little lab rat over a nasty, toothy, slobbering dog any time. smile

              And cats, now - cats are just, well, the cat's meow if you know what I mean.  Man needs a master and cats fill the bill quite nicely.  They give us a purpose in life; provide food and water as needed, clean the litter box continuously and pet the cat as demanded.  You just haven't lived until you've headed for that easy chair only to have the cat look up at you in that regal manner that plainly says "You just thought you wanted this chair, bub!"

              It has recently been proved that rats have been unjustly blamed for the spread bubonic plague, when it was really gerbils or hamsters or something.

    Sorry but Cats are the rulers of the universe.  They are much smarter and cleaner than drooling, people pleasing dogs.  They also kill mice.   I respect their independent nature lol

      You win, hands down.  How can anyone have a flame war with a cat lover?  The salt of the earth, I say!

    Speaking of snakes, I firmly believe that the world's most lovable snake is, as everyone knows without a doubt to be the adorable little Northern Red Belly Snake.  Any other thoughts on this snakes total awesomeness are totally welcome.

    This one thing, we can all now agree upon.

    What about Hubscore? That's an unnecessarily hot topic unnecessarily hotly debated on the forums.
