    Debating With Idiots Is Like Arguing About Intangibles...

    I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. Debating with idiots is comparable to debating an intangible (For example, arguing the "existence" of God); sure, you can express your POV, but the idiot in question will more than likely act like an *** about it and think they're...

    The Worst Thing Is

    The worst thing about debating an idiot is they don't realize when they're wrong; no amount of facts or logic will convince them their POV isn't correct.

    Waste Of Time

    Debating idiots is a waste of time. Especially when they are glued to Fox TV. Walking away can be difficult but is the best, unless you want to waste time and energy trying to have a discussion.

    If you have not got a phd in political sciences

    or any other social qualification. Don't bother debating with me, I feel very low answering your stupid comments that clearly show prejudice and aggression and racism towards religions.

    They way too stupid for my liking.

    I hate it when I'm clearly correct, but no, these "smartasses" want to debate with me. No, just stop. You won't win. I'm not one to raise my voice and curse while arguing, especially when I'm in public. After a while of arguing i start getting annoyed and I start to yell. If i...

    But I Love To Argue With A Fool

    seriously, who wants to debate with an idiot? A debate should be a fair fight and if one of you is an idiot it's like bringing a knife to a gunfight.

    ...And When I Do, The Idiot Usually Wins...And I Just Look Stupid.

    Too often I'm drawn into a debate with an idiot; it could be politics, finances, or even the weather. Because the idiot is unwilling to listen to any sort of reason it shows my own level of stupidity that I even participated in the debate.I've learned that smart people, who...

    The Best Debates, Who

    You Can't Debate With Idiots.

    Idiots can't even grasp the concept of a proper debate. It will just end up with them calling names, bringing up things that don't relate to anything, and you just throwing your hands in the air, rolling your eyes, walking away, muttering "idiot."
