Top Ten Topics Which Cause the Most Discussion

Whether you want a deep intellectual debate or just cause an argument, these topics will guarantee one of these.
The Top Ten
1 Music

#Classy pretty much guaranteed success if one can hit the right crowd.

It does for me and my closest friends. Music is a great topic!

Well, yes. There's music, and then there's glorified noise.

2 Sport

Sports garner a bit more discussion for me than music, though all of these choices are reasonable topics!

3 Money

Interesting how nobody after three years thought to add 'money' to this list. Honestly, how many times have you asked or been asked, "What would you do if you won the lottery?" It is such a common question, yet we never seem to get tired of answering or discussing it. It is also a question that may lead to many long late-night conversations.

4 Politics

"I learned early on, stay away from politics, stay away from religion, and don't talk about sports. Those three right there will get you in trouble." - Gabriel Iglesias.

Trust me, man. I know how it feels considering how I talk about politics a lot, though I've tried to lessen up on it and talk about other things.

One opinion I have on politics could affect the number of followers I have. A lot of American users on here are either liberal or conservative. If I say one good thing about Obama, I get bashed for it. Shoot me.

5 Relationships
6 Death

Anytime someone famous or close to you or someone you knew dies, it always brings a bit of discussion.

Also, R.I.P. Muhammad Ali.

It's not common where somebody dies and nobody notices or cares.

7 Video Games

Certainly does work. But you need friends who also play and know what you're talking about, or you're just a weirdo.

8 Films

Isn't that the point of seeing a movie? To have a grand discussion with someone about it?

9 Religion

Social Media:

Man 1: My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends. I know the victims are in a better place.

Man 2: You idiot, there is no god or heaven, so stop wasting your time... Blah blah blah.

The argument just goes on and on for pages about proof, monkeys, and the Big Bang. Why can't people just accept that others believe in different things? It's always some people arguing back and forth, but it gets no one anywhere.

I'm disappointed that bashing other beliefs has become more normal today.

Most people stereotype it as atheists yelling at anyone who mentions a god or gods, but it goes both ways. Example:

Person 1:
Woah, my Pokémon just evolved! I'm so happy!

Person 2:
Evolution is NOT REAL! Start worshiping the almighty God and not Satan, or have fun burning in the lake of fire!

Person 1:
What if I don't believe in God or Satan?

Person 2:

Person 1:
You do realize this conversation started with me talking about Pokémon, right? This is kind of ridiculous.

Person 3:
I agree with Person 1.

Person 2:
Well, you guys can have fun agreeing in the LAKE OF FIRE!

Person 1 and 3:
Let's just stop talking.

Person 2:

This is a legitimate conversation I had on social media. I was Person 1.

10 War

I feel as though almost all deep late-night conversations I have with friends at least end with World War II.

The Contenders
11 Sexuality

Boy, oh boy. People shouldn't think of a person's sexuality as their defining characteristic. Just saying.

Well, it can, yeah. Whether it's how good another person looks, innuendos, or when you play Cards Against Humanity.

12 Friends
13 Celebrities

Sadly, I can't talk too much about celebrity news with people, but I know it's a great topic!

14 Philosophy

Definitely! Why are we here? What is our purpose? These are the real deep heart conversations.

15 Science

There is science, and there is junk science. Then there is theory, in which one's grasp of logic and the scientific method (anybody remember that?) is critical in determining in which category (science or junk) any given theory belongs.

16 Grammar

Okay, I'm a self-professed grammar nerd. I even wrote an entire paragraph on why grammar is important for my language arts class.

17 Weather

It always does bring a decent discussion. It's a great topic starter.

18 Literature

This is usually all I have on my mind.

19 Feminism

I don't even know much about radical feminists, and I hope I never will.

20 Law
21 Ethics
22 Food
23 Abortion
24 Social Science
25 Behavioral Science
