Now you can debate points publicly and let the internet decide the validity of your point of view with the new online social site Squabbler.
No more anonymous postings on editorial pages… now you can pick a person with whom you have a disagreement – send them an invitation to debate – and upload a 30-second clip to garner votes from the public.
Part of me likes this concept, because there have been some creative (and funny) uses of it to date:
- The boyfriend whose career choice is impersonating Captain Morgan – and whose girlfriend thinks its time for him to get a real job
- A debate between man’s best friend (“I think we should go back to the broom”) and a vacuum (“Step aside and let me do my job…”)
- Tapered jeans: cool vs. not cool
It’s an interesting idea, that seems to be catching on, and some of these rants are hysterical. Check out the Hall of Fame for some of the best.
