    Go Titans fam.
    Some of you may know that I'm currently deployed on a ship in the middle of no where and won't be returning for a few months. The ship leaves tons of time to think and reflect on just about everything. This particular deployment, an idea struck me. I've talked about my post Navy career and finding a way to get on the radio somehow as kind of a dream job but in the mean time, I am starting to write scripts for a podcast I'm going to start recording after I return home.
    The show title is "the dumb things I've argued and vague rules to live by"

    About me personally, I have argued many, many stupid things. Not politically, or racially, or any of that (well I have but that's not what I'm talking about) but the everyday things we all go through.
    A couple examples:
    -I spent multiple days, specifically 1 entirely wasted work day, arguing whether Red (cherry) Mountain Dew was better than Regular Mountain Dew and that at a minimum, it should be as readily available wherever you go.
    -Another day wasted was spent arguing why Chik-Fila-A as a business model is so much better than McDonalds. Realistically, I'm referring to the stateside establishments, not globally.

    Most revolve around sports. Being a Titans fan, I argue them a lot too.

    BUT the point of this thread is that I'm asking for some assistance and some ideas. I have enough material for probably 30-40 half hour episodes.
    I'd like to see if any of you have any suggestions for topics or even dumb arguments you've had yourself that I may be able to use. If you want, I would give credit for the idea on that episode.

    Mind you, I'm trying to avoid politics and the "hot button" topics that dominate the news. Everyone has those arguments. I'm looking for the odd things that truly have no reason to ever be debated.

    Thanks. I'm sure this thread will go well.

    Seinfeld v Friends
    Diesel v gasoline
    Countries that start with "A" tend to have a lot of hot women

    I understand Friends, but Seinfeld? Really? neither?

    Chik-fila-A is a better model... MUCH simpler menu, less ingredients.

    Kind of like Raising Canes... they serve chicken fingers, fries, garlic toast and drinks. I don't even think they have any dip except their "special sauce".

    Friends vs. Seinfeld is a good one. I know where I stand and plenty of people will argue this.
    I will actually have to do research for Diesel v gas. I know, very un-manly of me, but I really don't know jack about cars yet alone why gas or diesel is better than the other. That said, there's an unwritten rule in the Navy about making Chief, that when you do, you must go buy a pickup truck. It's weird, I don't get it and it took about 4 years for me to get a small, older pickup.

    Countries with A and their hot women. I will do extensive research on the matter. I may even write something about it later, but first, in depth research to confirm this.

    I'll suggest an alternate "like" sitcom to argue but I can also add you into the category of crazy, strange people who actually pick NEITHER.

    I'm certain I can get a King of the Hill vs Beavis and Butthead or vs something else going too. I may just compare the evening cable TV cartoons like Simpsons, KOTH, and others.
    I do already have a Futurama vs Family Guy episode which was a large argument of mine back in maybe 2006/7 time frame. Family guy had already been canx and Futurama Canx twice and Cartoon Network: Adult Swim reaped the major rewards.

    I can break down the Chik-Fil-A to McD way more than just menu and food. Just consider the general appearance of just about every McD you've walked into, now the same for Chik-Fil-A. Not even close.

    While I wasted an entire day arguing this point, I was very unaware of McDonalds no longer giving a crap about their food and realistically playing the real-estate game. And for counter-point sake, one of these two franchises has multiple movies based off them, one does not.
