The Top Ten

The answer to religion is easy: believe whatever the hell you want to as long as your not killing people as a result. It is that easy, yet society seems to be filled with so much idiots that we are stuck on it still. We should be devoting our time to I don't know. Maybe ending poverty, or pollution of the earth, or racism, or maybe even women's rights. Any one of these things are being ignored by this growing population of idiots stuck on something that a kindergartener could figure out. As a result the human race is starting to take a turn for the worst. Atheists don't blame religion, blame the argument on religion.
According to a survey disbelievers know more about religion than the rest. Religion is a lifestyle. So don't argue about it. Do what you think is right. It will be your religion
It is very true that no religion will win, but in a way religion need to be around in order for people to feel as if they have something to live for or towards to, but then again relgion makes so many wars because many people do not know how to respect other beliefs due to their mentality that everyone should be just like them or think just like they do, so that's my persional view on religion
[Newest]There is no better religion. All religions need to coexist in order for us to survive.

2Taste in Music
This one idiot always makes fun of peoples music but he needs to get a life


Everyone has a different taste in music so everyone will think differently. Then if you meet someone who doesn't have the same music preference as you, it'll start up the conversation on which music is better. WHO CARES? Music is music.
There is this dumbass who just doesn't realise different people have different tastes. His favorite person is justin bieber (gay) and he's talking about others's tastes
[Newest]Hey that's a thing! When someone breaks up with their boyfriend they like to listen to music... Well maybe that's just me...

3Human Skin Color
More racist in the unted states than the rest of the world combined.
"the USA is the most racist country"

Ever thought of because we have the most races? There's all different kinds of races so don't expect there to be little racism.

India has mostly Indian people

China mostly has Chinese people

Mexico mostly has Mexican people

United States has a mix of all
It makes no sense! Whites don't look like blacks so shouldn't they be slaves too? Just a point.
[Newest]Who cares if someone has a different skin color then you? They are people too!


Hey I love my teams just as much as the next guy but I'm not going to shun someone for rooting for another team.


Sports should not exist in society anyway. All it is is watching people kick a ball into a net or hitting it with a long stick! People simply waste their time and their lives, basing their lives on the outcome of a game! Yeah, I know exercise is important, but it's useless to watch people doing it. What are "sports professionals" professionals at, anyway?! Kicking a ball! They get paid bigbucks for one of the most talentless things anyone can do! It's pointless watching people do this and pointless arguing about whether the talentless Man you can kick a ball into a net more times than the equally talentless Man City!
Whoever wrote this has no clue what so ever. Sports is not just kicking a ball, it takes skill to make it to the top. For example, in soccer you must run down players and tackle the, despite how much skill they have. When you do get the ball, you use your skill to try and pass to someone in a better position than you and try and score a goal. What's wrong with watching sports? Do you like have something against people going out to have a few beers and a good time? Or are you one of those people who sits at home and watches T.V.. Let's not forget, by watching sports you can be able to pick up some skills and put them into you own game. The main stars do not get paid big bucks for kicking a ball, they get paid because they are extremely good at playing sports and it shows by the outcome of the result of the scoreboard.
I think sports shouldn't matter as much as they matter today. Like you shouldn't be crying or getting angry over LeBron or however you spell his name for moving to another team. He is just a person that happens to be very good at basketball. Calm down.
[Newest]I think people take sports too seriously

5Mac vs. PC
Macs blow. PC can provide so much more specs and processing power for about half of the cost of an Apple product. The only thing that makes Mac computers successful is the user interface designed for technologically challenged people and the stlye logo
I own a PC and an Iphone, I guess that pretty much solves that. I would like to point out that nobody should ever fully support one or the other. There are benefits to both, and one has to realize that both companies have performed incredible contributions to technology. Once you realize that, the validity of this argument is lost.
Mac's are much more user friendly, PC's can do a lot more, but you have to either be a computer genius, or do A LOT of research! Macs also, if you do a little research, can open a window that runs on Windows, and they can do all sorts of other cool things that don't involve coding.
[Newest]It's stupid, you buy a computer that is compatible with your needs.

6Xbox 360 or PS3
I think PS3 is better than Xbox 360 because of the different games on each system. I personally like hash and slash games more than first person shooter, more of those games are on the PS3. My opinion please don't hate.
Obviously they are at each others backs, well most of the time. They do sponsor the same games but others different, such as Lbp or other games. It's such a pointless thing to argue about because they are both awesome devices.
Why... Just... Why my Xbox isn't working now... My brother broke it... I'm sad...
[Newest]Xbox 360 has its own dedicated Wikipedia page JUST for the problems it has. Need I say more?

7What Clothes You Wear
I often argue with my Mum about this- I want to wear new clothes around the house (otherwise, what's the point in getting new clothes? And she argues back :(
Who cares If you wear what you wear that's just plain stupid!
I want comfortable clothes but my mother wanted me to wear jeans. This maybe happens everywhere.


8Pepsi vs Coca-Cola
They're both good and taste the same to me :/
Pepsi Tastes more watery and more sugary, but their both cola, so I buy whichever one is on sale :P
Pepsi's better than coca-cola because there is more caffeine in it
[Newest]We had this debate in my seventh grade math class and Pepsi won... I don't know if this helps

9Same-sex marriage
I don't understand people sometimes. Have your opinions on certain matters, but keep them to yourself. These people aren't you, so why get mad? And just because someone has the freedom of speech, doesn't mean they have to use it. I'd just like people to stop getting upset over other people's lives that have nothing to do with them.
I don't think you've read the Bible before
Romans Romans 1:27 says it's wrong end of story.
And the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
[Newest]What people don't realize is who cares some people may say oh hey their lesbians and they'll make fun of that but that's not nice!

10Best Movies
Some people get angry if you disagree with them about how good a movie is. For example, a lot of people that are fans of James Cameron's 'Titanic, ' get very defensive if you tell them that it is not the greatest ever!
Everybody has their own taste in movies! If you argue about a movie your not right! You should always have your favorite movie
Everyone has a different opinion, I know I do. If you want to argue about this it is fine with me. I warn you absolutely pointless, please don't waste your time. PLEASE
This is a crazy thing to argue about, but I have to say that I have never watched nor will I ever watch Harry Potter because of all of the magic and sorcery... That is just my opinion though
[Newest]Everybody has their favorite movie like some people might still like the sand lot while others are obsessing over frozen!

The Contenders

11Myspace or Facebook
Come on, myspace is dead honey, facebook rules! In with the new, out with the old
I like to eat towels
Who has a MySpace anymore?


12Coolest Cars
I hate it when people argue about cars.. Seriously who cares?!
You didn't buy them with YOUR money. This is indeed a pointless thing to argue about.


13Hottest People
Again I'm the clear winner of course


This is one I see people argue about all of the time. They look like complete retards. I just walk away laughing.

14McDonalds or Burger King
theyre freakin burger joints get over it


Eww Burger King is mad nasty, like I don't even think its real food
They both sell nasty ass food so get a life and bring your ass down to the nearest Dominos Pizza!

15Best Sports
Do shut up, these people! You're plainly unbearable!


Oh come on!
We shouldn't argue.
Everyone knows Aussie Rules football is the best sport.


16Planets of Solar System
When all earthlings argue, everyone would choose earth. So, basically this won't be an argument at all which makes it a pointless thing to argue about.


Pluto is the best because its small and cute


17Paper or Plastic
The are both bad to use
Just forget about paper and plastic bags. Reusable bags are better. End of story.


18England vs America
Didn't America come from England, and by saying that America sucks your pretty much saying England sucks.


There is no argument - ENGLAND is better!

19One Direction or Justin Bieber
Both are bad influences because two members (Zayn Malik & Louis Tomlinson) of One Direction were caught smoking weed. Justin Beiber has done a handful of things that grants him a bad reputation. Being a One Direction fan myself I obviously choose them because 1) they do many charities nobody knows about 2) they are humble, they don't show off they're money 3) they're all around nice guys that love singing & 4) many of you have not bothered to see they're movie because they're a "gay boy band" but they're movie says a lot about them and they just want to live their lives to the fullest. Justin Beiber is also nice but he has too much of an ego for me to like.
None they both suck

20Democrat vs Republican

21Cartoons vs Anime
Anime is graphically better, and more interesting, while cartoons are typically funnier, and more action packed at times, same goes for anime.
I'd say that I prefer anime over cartoons, but Cartoons have a lot of slapstick and Comedy compared to anime. I have argued about it once before.


This has completely gotten way out of hand on Top Tens Lists even I got caught up in this whole mess.


22Kisses or Smooches
Depends on how it is

23Burger Restaurants vs Pizza Restaurants
COME ON I know that burgers are very tasty but which type of resturunt is better? I perferr the well rounded types. Besides whats the point? IS IT BURGER KING OR LITTLE CEASERS GOD DAM IT!

24Best Video Games

25New or Thrifted

26Toilets or Sinks
WHAT! I never heard of this one! But is sounds very pointless! Toilet of sink? Hm. Let me think this one over for a couple of days... WELL duh! You need both!


27Men vs Woman
ALWAYS WEMEN we are always number one all though we are the most picky!... Hey we make good dinner

28Momma's Boy vs. Daddy's Girl

29Life or Death

30Is Pot a Drug

31Harry Potter or Twilight
Only stupid teenage girls thing Twilight is the best, Harry Potter defined a generation. If anyone thinks Twilight is the best they need to look at the writing style, even the star of the movies hates it!
Harry Potter! Emma Watson is more beautiful than Kristin Stewart.
Harry Potter in a heartbeat. At least it has an organized easy to follow story line.

32Girls or Boys
Not without sperm donators.
Well who needs guys girls can make baby's with out boys

33Soccer vs. Football
Soccer is the actual football but American football should have been called American handball. Laugh out loud.


What is this "soccer" you speak of?


34Who is the Greatest Guitarist
Frank iero hell yeah oh and peter marchant

35Right or Left Handed
I don't understand this one.
Well it dose not matter to me cause none of them will mess with me time

36Older or Younger

You would be surprised how pointless, and popular this argument is. Forty years from now this will be forgotten, but the kids talking about it today just freak me out. Entire songs are devoted to swag, which are just as stupid as the pop songs about money drugs, and sex. How I miss the days when music used to be about more relevant things.

38Bigfoot: Real or Fake

3989 or 93 Premium

40Ford or Chevy

41Son Goku vs. Superman
Goku of course, superman is an unrealistic character with unlimited abilities over time..
As proven by a death battle, Superman is stronger than Goku. Still not convinced? Watch the death battle yourself.


42Best Anime
Bleach, one piece and daily lives of highschool boys are the best


Higurashi and umineko are the best anime so now stop fighting

43Head or Tails
Lets flip on it...

44Real Guitar or Guitar Hero
This reminds me of a time I was talking to a friend about playing guitar (we both played) and someone else came over and said 'I'm better than both of you'
Turned out later he was talking about Guitar Hero, not real guitar.


45Most Powerful Countries
I always hear people saying that Britain is the most powerful that its a superpower it can nuke China and Russia even though USA and Russia are the powers of the World (and China sometimes).

46Hot Dogs or Hamburgers

47Which Country Is Best
My country is the best.. True all around the globe

48Star Wars vs. Star Trek

49Miley Cyrus or Lindsey Lohan
They both suck. End of argument.

50Who's The Best Singer

51Car or Truck / Bus
Ha ha! What a stupid thing to argue about.


52Doors or Sliders

53Now or Later
When I'm writing this comment, it is now but when you read it, it is later. So this is a dumb thing to argue about.


54Superman or Batman
Batman it better because he doesn't need super powers

55Eggs or Chickens
I was in a vary heated argument about the eggs or chickens I want to have a baby with the chicken and make an egg

56Floor or Online Shopping

57Piano or Guitar

58HD or Regular View
HD is much brighter and better quality, so I prefer HD over the regular view, because I bet that when things used to be shown in black and white, and colored television was coming out, the same problem between the two was similar, but eventually we would get into the habit of liking new advanced things and appreciating them, so if someone doesn't like something though don't get mad at them because it takes time for people to get use to certain things

59Tiny or Super Tiny

60Lefties vs. Righties vs. Ambidextrous People
Again, we have a clear winner. Ambidextrous people all the way!

61Chicken Nuggets vs. Chicken Tenders
They're both tasty but which one is better?


63Apples vs. Oranges
Too juicy to decide!

64Gloves or Mittens

65Cars or Motorcycles

66Straws or mouth slurping

67Coats or Jackets

68Glasses or Contacts
Glasses can be taken on and off easily and quickly.
Glasses can be taken on and off easily
Well... Contacts feel better. And allow for periphial vision.

69Airplane or Helicopter

70Cursive or Typing

71Pools or Lakes

72Chairs or Booths

73Coffee or Cappuccino

74Fast Food or Dine-in

75Snow or Rain

76Stairs or Elevators
I'm pretty sure people will say the same thing... elevators!


78% of the people fall down stairs
43% of the people die in elevators due to axe murderers, ghosts, ghouls and perverts
So I'm going with elevater because I have a gun and I'm an excorcist


77Straight or Curly

78Bald or Unbald

79Blind or Unblind

81Roman or Greek Empire

This one is easy. Neither. Unhealthy and tasty is unhealthy. Healthy and disgusting is disgusting. End of story.

88Smart and ugly or mentally slow and attractive
Well smart and ugly cause not every sees that person the same way.

89Awesome or Amazing

90Building or House

91Krispy Creme or Donut Den

92Pencil or Pen
You have to sharpen pencils over and over but pens run out of ink. I like both anyway.


93Deer or Elk

94Fried or Grilled

95Fired or Smoked

96Simple or Complicated

97TV or Projector

98Laptop or Desktop Computer
