    What are topics started at this BBS that are guaranteed to, without hesitation, incite a heated argument?

    My personal favorites include Blu-Ray, Barrack Obama and Trek XI. Not surprisingly, I love the grand events with all the players, including the hard-nosed curmudgeon that enjoys the sport of taking on the nearly unanimous opinions and habits of everyone, including the world.

    Anything related to women's rights or men's rights. Generally it ends with those in favour of men's rights no matter what their opinion on women's rights labelled as misogynists, and those in favour of women's rights labelled as misandrists.

    It'd be entertaining if it weren't so full of stupidity.

    I just saw an interview with Obama on tv where he says if Trip Tucker isn't on Trek XI he'll get drunk and start smoking again. And then he said he'd rather watch it on Blue Ray.

    Discuss.

    The topic of Jennifer Lien leaving Voyager tends to get people kind of riled up.

    PS3 vs. XBOX is a good one recently as well.

    You forgot how Obama was caught having sex while speeding to the movie theater to watch the trailer for Trek XI.

    Peeing in the shower.

    Never had a discussion about it, never even thought about it, before coming here. But for the past few years, there is a shower pee thread at least every few months. And it's always long and heated.

    I'm with you all way on sex, speeding, smoking, and drinking.


    Officer: Do you know how fast you were going?
    Me: Apparently not fast enough if you caught up to me.

    Why are there no gays in Trek?

    Also any thread discussing gay rights/marriage.

    A similar thread that I haven't seen in awhile is the proper urinal etiquette. Looks like we're due.

    I've managed to get people riled up by talking about nuBSG, marriage and abortion without due reverence. :angel:

    Never mind topics, it's the presence of our favourite posters who make the topics truly burn into the night like a supernova, especially if there's nothing to ignite in the first place. :bolian:
