What should it be about? I'm not a shabby speaker and I always have pretty interesting/good topics. So far I've done "The Orgins of the Word 'Nerd'" (started in colleges in the 1950's, "drunk" backwards, implying no social life), "How to Rule at Guitar" and other fun stuff.

It has to be persuasive, have a visual aid and at least 5 min... nothing hard just thought you guys might want to throw some ideas in.

I'm going to go play Zelda for a bit..

Uh... you could always try "Why *insert form of media* will never die", be it books, music, so on and so forth.

"Why Red should be forgiven for not having a speech ready, because he spent all night playing Zelda."

As for the visual aid, well, one can guess....

Should've known this would be fruitless...

Guess I'll try the Something Awful forums. :P

Ooh, post a link here when you do. I want to see what "fruitful" means. ...For academic purposes, of course.

My suggestion was bad, huh? Next time, I'll just link ya to Cliff's Notes or something :rolleyes:

I just want it to be interesting, not bland like "Why Eight-Tracks Will Never Die!"

...hey... wait.

Here's a topic: "The mystery of the double post - anomaly, or government conspiracy/George Bush's fault?"

That's a B+ easy.

Well, it doesn't exactly fit the idea of "persuasive", one would think, but who cares so long as it works?

Write a bunch of ideas on a piece of paper, shred it up, put it all in a hat, and draw!
ex: "Laura Bush" "wears" "Hot Topic"!

Bad example but you get my point.

Talk about why buttzekz is kewl. And by that i mean, why spelling things badly can be funny :P

Do it about the real story behind the evil monkey in your closet. Or better yet, persuade the audience to believe that everyone has an evil monkey in their closet.

Compare Ging's ban hammer to Teddy Roosevelts Big stick policies.

As for the persuasive part... say something like "Ging's ban hammer pwnzorz Ted's big stick policies because poor old Ted was held back by a system of checks and balances while Ging can ban whomever the flip he wants, even if the guy's name is Cuba."

Actually -- debate sexuality. It's very interesting. Not something bland like "origins on the word 'nerd'" or anything.

I believe there is no such thing as sexuality. It's (to a point -- some of it has to be genetic) all bred of circumstance. A social suicide is two men making love.Except in a society like a miner's society, or a submarine crew. Then, there ain't no pussy around for all of you, and you've still got a sex drive.

Would you do a threesome with a bisexual male stranger and the hottest girl at your school?

True, very true.

You're horny. No chicks around, but there's Johnny in that tight sailor suit and oh my he's looking lovely and OHMYGODWHATAMITHINKING.

I think it's more like desperation. =) Thanks tho, best so far..

Bad news tho guys. I got hooked on your infinite thingy Cyborg, and I decided to give my speech on persuading my audience that the universe was finite.

Guys, I had such a good theory. It must have come to me in my sleep (all two hours of it) and I went up to make it AND I FUCKING FORGOT IT.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME. :mad:

Yeah. About the time I got done explaining the forth dimension and giving examples of a finite and infinite universe, I just stopped, and realized I had forgot my point.

He still have me a B. :p

I beg to differ. Desperation is a bad word for it. Why is boys masturbating in groups such a widespread phenomenon?

Mayhem

Talk about 'sexuality & sexual crimes in the 1600's'.

Always gatheres the crowds to the auditory ;)

E: Oh crap.. you already had your speech

Actually, it wasn't doomed until Sil posted. Then everything went downhill. By downhill, I mean that someone detonated the bridge into splinters. This (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:NewRiverBridge_West_virginia.jpg) bridge.

Gotta love these forums. ;)

I still don't belive group masturbating among boys is escalating in popularity.

Sil
5th May 2007, 10:00
=P I'm not saying it's escalating. In fact, I think the popularity is decreasing due to the availability of porn. How much do you know about your friends' porn habits? Think any of them would tell the rest if they, from time to time, watched a bit of gay porn?

Red

By any chance do you watch porn when you post on the forums?

I don't know about that, but he does link EVERYTHING back to sex, a little too much sometimes. The ones that talk about it the most dont get it, isn't that what they say. :)

Sil
5th May 2007, 23:14
=P Or they've recently been getting nigh too much of it, but feel too dainty about their own private lives to actually come forth and claim an adventurous sexlife -- feeling more at home with masturbational habits than those shared with their mate.

I dunno. Whoever "they" are, indeed.
