haha, and i suppose the point of having all that great food is to live? well, that's the theory, isnt it? Wink never mind that from the looks of them, u'd think it's because most people just love to eat. Wink

yaar, we dont have to use rocket science here. we debate mostly because we like to. it's good time-pass, nice entertainment, and a societally acceptable way to beat up on other guys. yes, it's also a charming way to impress the other gender and show how smart and funny we can be. LOL

why beat around the bush? Wink

 I don't think there is only one point that answers why we participate or enjoy debates silently.

 Different people debate based on what their needs are and most if not all have been mentioned before... There are a lot of silent readers that get benefits of theraputic, learning and validating their beliefs from these debates. Posters who might be compelled to post and debate every time may be in it for some entertainment value as CB puts it. The benefit all of us derive is that various pov's are mentioned and that is healthy. It opens our minds and hearts and reminds us of  our limitations. 

 For me Sweta , the reason you put forth best summizes my need for coming to DM and sometimes participating also. I consider myself WIP..Smile

as for "live to eat", nah nah, no spelling mistake. gotta be "love to eat". that's how one gets to the obesity that's so rampant, and may i add especially in places like Texas?Wink one's gotta make up new phrases to keep up with the changing timesLOL

haha, i guess i should be hitting DM more often than the books- so many povs and things to learn.Tongue and reminds me, when i go watch movies, i shld be doing so to explicitly learn the art of story-telling. and those trashy novels? oh, that's to build word power. street fights? nah, not to enjoy the tamasha. but to learn the fine art of boxingLOL

ok, seriously the problem with most of the viewpoints that have been articulated is not that they are not valid. they are. but they are mostly irrelevant or secondary IMO.

so what gives? the problem is that very little energy is expended when you're a passive someone, be it listener, observer, reader. the more interesting question is really why the active guys get into it, burning up all that energy and time. and the explanations that i came up addresses that best IMO. Smile maza ata hai. naheen? Wink
