    Hey Everyone - I had a question for all of you if you'd want to give me your thoughts and suggestions.
    For my speech class, I have to do a Persuasive Speech. I have gotten a few ideas from my friends, but like them, I don't know too many. :confused:
    So far I have only two and it's:
    1. Why you should rarely eat fast food.
    2. The need for genetically modified Crops to feed the hungry.

    Does anyone here know anymore good topics I could consider? I want to keep these topics away from the controversial topics that could really screw me up. So I am trying to stay away from abortion or stem cell research or oil drilling and all that.
    If any of you want to throw a suggestion out, that would be great!
    Thanks :biggrin1:

    That should be easy to find research materials for, and you might want to see the film "Supersize Me" as part of the research as well.

    I know I eat WAY too much fast food though, because I hate to cook and don't have the money for the fancy places... like the plaque I want for my kitchen says "If you are what you eat, then I'm fast, cheap and easy". :biggrin1:

    Yeah, I'd pretty much want to stay away from the more controversial topics too, although they're very interesting topics! I just have been surrounded by people who are polar opposites of me on the controversial topics, and they get rather hostile to me if they know my opinions...
