Yes.

The Europeon Cantaloupe is different from the American Cantaloupe or Muskmelon as some call it.

The American Cantaloupe. Start with your opening statement whenever ready.  ;) (Oh and If anyone is willing to stand in for 762 until he calls himself back in they can)

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Simply put, in this modern age of computers and memory metals, who is to say that the average American Cantaloupe can not fly 500 miles in the proper light weather conditions? Given it's proportions and makeup, and a generally eastward flow of the jetstream, the fruit will fly the distance.

I am here today to prove to you all that an American Cantaloupe can fly 500 miles under the right light weather conditions.

Oh, this Cantaloupe will fly on its own.


However, it may require a cannon or a really big hill.

asking questions about the topic to pass time till 762 or someone who decides to stand in for him steps up to respond to post 1:

So, PatMan What would be the average wingspan of a normal American Cantalope?

Cant we debate about something real like if JFK was killed by a lone gunman(Lee Harvey Oswald) or was this a lager conspiracy?




PS. a Mellon can fly 600 miles(or whatever) anything is possible with string theory.   ;)

Why not just let the two individuals pick the topic they debate on their own? Just have them talk to each other via AIM or whatever for a while, then once they disagree on something, they bring it here, and just like that, you have a debate where the participants are actually passionate and fuled (not to be confused with agitated and hostile, people can disagree without it turning into a flame war, and these make the best debates).

I think that just might destroy the meaning of this thread and in the spirit of the debate topic i must insist that that way is not the way that is in the end used.

Well, this thread is basically a joke-trial, and Patman33 and 762 aren't flamers.

So this will probably end up funny.

Aname: Stop spamming. Your post count isn't that important. If you have nothing to say, don't say it. You are just taking up space.

I am up for it too.

But we can't have a truism or untruism as the topic of debate: it has to be something that has basis in real life, is debatable and is subject to opinion.
