I'm looking to build a list of reasons to agree or disagree... This is all I have so far: Please help!

The Chicago Botanic Garden is a good place to take your kids +2

Best reasons to agree: +4
  1.  You can take pictures of your kids in a pretty places. For the cost of going to a professional studio, your kids can walk around and you can take pictures of them.
  2. You can people watch at the gardens, which you can't do in the wilderness. 
  3. You can get gardening ideas, and find plants you want in your yard at the botanic garden.
  4. They have paths, which is good if you have kids in strollers. 
  1. You can walk around and look at nature for free.
  2. You don't have to be around people if you just go out into nature.

Going to the zoo is worth your families time and money +0

Reasons to Agree: +3
  1. It is worth it to have animals be part of your life
  2. You should take your kids outside where they can walk around, see different people, and explore their surroundings. Kids get to see all different types of people at the zoo.
  3. You should teach your kids about Animals. Kids learn about Animals by going to the zoo. You can't learn to appreciate animals unless you see them. When kids learn about animals, they learn about biology which may result in medical interest. Medical interest can result in an interest in many different jobs, from pharmacy to being a doctor. Learning about animals also teaches about geography. At least it did for our kid, as he learned what animals lived where. 
Reasons to disagree: -2
  1. Usually people don't spend much time studying animals at the zoo. People tend to look at the animal, watch it for a few minutes, and move on... 
  2. Kids will learn more about animals by having a pet than going to a zoo. Letting your kids have a pet teaches your kids. Having a long time responsibility for an animal can teach you a lot. 
  3. Kids are taught that animal rights can be ignored when going to the zoo.

This movie supports the conclusion because it shows that:
1. Kids can have authentic experiences with animals at zoos.
Dolphin show

Daughter dancing

Youngest watching the giraffe. 
My oldest son doesn't know how to wear a hat...

Some zoos give animals lots of room

It is interesting watching kids learn to speak. +2

Best Videos that agree: +
  1. Kids come into this world knowing nothing. Without knowing any rules, just hearing other people speak, they are able to learn perhaps one of the most complex things they will ever do, in only a few years...
  2. Watching kids learn to speak, can remind you of your kids when they were doing that. 
  3. Just because you understand how mankind was able to learn how to speak, doesn't mean that it is less amazing, interesting, or that you should appreciate the miracle of life, and knowledge, and the ability to communicate less. 
  4. in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court Mark Twain spoke of the "darling mispronunciations of childhood".
Best reasons to disagree: -
  1. Animals don't have really complex words, but they are able to make noises, and have the begining of languages... Give them a few million years, and this could develop in non-spectacular ways, if you watched the slow progress.

      It is hard work but can be humorous teaching kids manners and hygiene

      Best Videos that agree: +2
      1. Kids eat things they should not eat. 
        1. Kids lick bird poop off sliding glass windows. 
        2. When you find brown stuff in their bed, and say it looks like poop, they just might tell you, "Don't worry, it doesn't taste like poop." When you ask why they tested it, they might say, "don't worry I didn't eat it, I just put my teeth on it". PS: it was, against all assurances, poop. We told her she needs to wash her hands, because she might get sick, she tells us, "I'm already sick" (she had a runny nose).
        3. Kids eat dirt.
        4. Kids eat rolly pollies (not ours, yet)
      2. Kids eat things that shouldn't be eaten, but won't eat anything you try to feed them. 
      3. It is funny seeing a little brain that has not yet learned that it is impolite to suck your toes in public...

        Best Videos that agree: +
        1. Kids love to explore new places they go to.
        2. Kids don't enjoy talking, and so they entertain them selves by messing around with stuff.
        3. Kids can't hold still very well.
        Best reasons to disagree: -3
        1. When they are really young they mostly just sleep
        2. If you bring stuff for kids to play with, they are OK. 
        3. Most restaurants accommodate kids.

        You should back up your family videos on youtube

        Reasons to agree: +6
        1. All hard drives crash unexpectedly. You can trust that YouTube will not delete  you videos.
        2. If you put you videos on YouTube grandparents and other relatives could watch them. Google search now includes personalized search, which means that potentially if any of your relatives are searching for "Yellowstone" because they want to use a video of Yellowstone in their school project, Google will tell show them your video of Yellowstone, with their grandparents in it... In other words Google has made it very easy for related people and friends to automatically find interesting stuff from each other...
        3. It might be boring now, but ever little thing your kid did when they were babies will be interesting when they have moved out.
        4. If you don't remember much from your childhood, videos can be a great way to jog your memory.
        5. If you don't put names and locations and other private information in the video, there shouldn't be much that weirdos can do to harm you from watching you sing happy birthday to your kid at Olive Garden, or seeing them play soccer... They could make their own recordings of people at olive garden, or playing soccer. If you go out in public you are not private. You are being video taped. There are drones and cameras everywhere. If you have anti virus for your computer (which we do) that will do more to protect identify theft, than not sharing videos with your family.
        6. It is not narcissistic to believe that your life is important: it is the most important thing that you have. It might not be important to others, but it is very important that you value your own life, because you only live once. When you die, your kids and perhaps grand kids will remember you. Maybe they will keep thumb drives with your pictures or videos on it. But if Google is going to value you enough to try to remember anything from your life, it won't matter in the end, but if it makes you feel like you won't be forgotten, that is OK. And if you have anything of value to say to grand kids or great grand kids  it could help you connect with them. It would have been great if we could have seen family life from 1000 years ago, why won't Google still have these videos 1000 years from now?
        Reasons to disagree: -2
        1. Putting videos of yourself can make others wonder if you are a narcissistic. 
        2. Weirdos could get information from your videos to harm your family, somehow.

          The National Parks are well ran and enjoyable -2

          Best reasons to agree: +
          1. The government has to keep people from feeding bears, to prevent bears from becoming dependent on people. 
          Best reasons to disagree: -
          1. There is no reason to have government owned gas stations within the park. 
          2. More buildings could be built within the state park in such a way that doesn't detract from the natural features  You could require the buildings be LEED certified, to appease the environmentalist. The could be designed so as not to interfere with wildlife. 
          3. The government should be more capitalistic with our state parks, in a smart way. When I say capitalism  you think Wal-Mart. Don't. Think Apple, Whole Food, Trader Joe, or Costco. We can combine the best of capitalism and scientific preservation of a wildlife.  Charging rich people to have a premium experience can fund wildlife preservation, and fund improvements that poor people can also experience. For instance, Indian Reservations that are not controlled by the federal government build glass bottom deck floors over the grand canyon. This does not hurt anything. Of course if too many people are driving on roads, than it might disrupt migration and stuff, but we can figure this stuff out...

          Yellowstone, 1978ish. Me getting pushed around Yellowstone 
          like Royalty
          Summer 2011. Wild Bison! James getting carried around like royalty. 
          Old Faithful, Summer 2011. Sunsets really are better in the west, when
          surrounded by wild elements. 
          2011. A cool bike we saw in Yellowstone
          2011. Megan and I will cruse the country on bikes like this

          Background and Context:
          I've been to Yellowstone a couple times as a kid, once with Just Megan, and now once with our 3 kids.

          I really like seeing the wild life. I remember the bison surrounding our car when I was little, seeing Bald Eagles, Elk with Megan.

          Megan also went to Yellowstone as a kid, but she wouldn't get out of the car because of the smell!

          Images that agree:

          My parents. Grotto Geyser.
          My Mom. I think this is Old Faithful. 
          My Mom. I think this is Old Faithful. 
          You could get a lot closer to the geysers back then. 
          You would see more wildlife in the olden days. 
          My parents. 
          My mom and I at Mesa Falls (near Yellowstone)
          In Jr. High my parents took BJ Morris and I to Yellowstone. I remember buying these shorts at Fred Meyers. 
          In Jr. High my parents took BJ Morris and I to Yellowstone. I think this is a place called Big Springs, where you can see a whole bunch of fish, and the water comes right out of a mountain... or this might be fishing bridge...
          Those shorts were awsome. BJ had a max headroom shirt.

          Marvin Laub is tough

          1. He recovered from knee and brain surgery, never complaining, and remaining cheerful and up-beat.
          2. He worked hard his whole life. Even at 79 years old he is still working, giving drivers training tests (Its not dangerous. These kids are already driving with their parents for a few months. My dad drives safe places with them, and gives them all very straight forward exams).
          3. He raised 5 kids, without ever really freaking out. You have to endure a lot of stuff to do that, and he did it with great strength.
          My Dad, being tough
          My dad ruff-housing with his kids (I'm the baby).

          Mesa Falls Idaho is worth the trip and is well managed

          1. It is safe to bring your kids, as long as you watch them. Its a pretty good water fall.
          2. Upper Mesa Falls is roughly 114 feet high and 200 feet wide.
          3. Our daughter really liked learning about the animals, going around and touching all the different furs... Maybe she will be a fashion designer some day?
          Best reasons to disagree: -
          1. They should put a zip line across the canyon and charge people to go across.
          2. They should build a safe way to talk down to the river.
          3. They are overly protective of kids picking flowers... This lady yelled at us when our 2 year old picked a wild flower. If flowers are going extentct we should use money to grow them. We should also sell them as extremely rare items, and and use the money we make to farm them. It is nice to have stuff growing in the wild but first we need to ensure their survival. If they are not endangered, and these government-types just like the feeling of power of yelling at parents for allowing their 2 year olds to pick a flower, than we should probably change things... They have parking lots and trails that killed these flowers much worse than my daughter. Their are thousands of miles of back-country that are owned by the federal government that they don't allow roads to be built.. There are places for wild flowers to grow... But if a little girl picks a flower, than to freakin bad... I know... I know... if every little girl who visitied picked a flower, than there might not be as many flowers within 100 or 200 feet of the parking lot of these places... but for Pete's sake, if they are that endangered, we should transplant them to green houses somewhere... I don't see this lady chasing deer away from flowers... I don't see hear going into the back country, if one of these flowers is not getting enough water, and brining it water... give me a break.
          4. Besides just being a place that you look at for a half an hour or so, or have a picknick at, it probably won't be to life altering of a visit. I have heard that you can walk along the canyon edge, and walk down to lower Mesa Falls, but things like that are tough to do with kids.

          Rolling Stone's list of Best Albums of all time is a good one

          Background, Context, and Assumptions
          Of course people can judge music by whatever criteria you want. How do you judge good music (don't just say you just like it!). For instance you can judge music by these criteria:

          1. How hard it is to play. For me this is not an important criteria. I guess if you play an instrument, you could enjoy a solo artist really push themselves. Craftsman ship is important. But at the end of the day, you can punch notes into a computer, and a computer could replace Eddie Van Halen's finger, but I hope it could not replace his best lyrics. Lavish craftsmanship looses most all of its appeal when not used to support an important truth.
          2. How innovative it is. Creativity is a great way to decorate music, but you have to have the substance of good music, and a good melody. I have read some great criticisms of experimental a-tonal college music. 
          3. Good songs can just be songs that capture a feeling really well, but in order for a song to be considered great, you would think that you would rank everything a 10... There is nothing wrong with listening to OK songs, but when listing the best songs, you should only include songs that have great lyrics with good meanings, good message, a great melody, etc...

          Rolling Stone's list of Best Songs of all time is a good one
          Best reasons to disagree: -
          1. I would like a list of best albums that totally ignored cover art. I propose that albums should not be judged by cover art, which Rolling Stones mentions many times praising Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. 
          2. I would like to see a list of the best music, that does not reward musicians for trying to be too clever. It seems like that kind of stuff comes and goes, but you can't listen to it very often, because it gets old. Lyrics should not be obscure. People are too afraid to live life, and so they hide any meaning by trying to be clever. Musicians need to learn the importance of being Ernest. 
          3. Good music is music from cool people saying important things in a sincere and beautiful way. Cool people are not people who suck at life. Good music is not music written by self-obsessed losers at the middle of the night, when they can't get their life together after their girl-friend broke up with them. Its not music telling people how cool they are. It is not music from someone you don't respect saying something stupid. It is written by people you can respect, who have lived a good life and have something to say. You shouldn't be allowed to write music when your a teenager. You don't have anything to say. 
          4. Music shouldn't be important because it created the hippy movement, or got girls to stop wearing bras for a few years... The music should be important if it had messages that successful people are able to believe for hundreds of years.

          1 Bob Dylan Like A Rolling Stone
          Best reasons to disagree: -

          1. This song is just some immature looser experiencing schadenfreude when a girl falls. We all know people like this. They are called jerks. It is stupid that some guy going on about how awesome it is is when someone is having a hard time is considered the best our culture has to offer.

          Find reasons to agree or disagree that the albums below deserve their spot.

          1 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band The Beatles 1967
          Best reasons to disagree: -

          1. The first song on the album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" has no meaning. It is nonsense  We are a stupid species if we are still playing it, outside of a history lesson, for personal enjoyment, 200 years from now. The words could be in a language that you don't understand, and the song would be better for you because they wouldn't distract you. Lyrics should make you think. It might be fine for them to set up the album with an alternative band, so they could do whatever they wanted, but they didn't have to subject us to it, and we shouldn't keep playing it, as if it is still important or insightful. You shouldn't be nostalgic over stupid things. If this song means anything to you, you are stupid.

          We can create a better list of really great songs than Rolling Stone Magazine
          (Songs that aren't afraid of having meaning)
          Best reasons to agree: -

          1. Time by Pink Floyd is better than any of the top 10 songs on the Rolling Stone List. Your life would not be missing anything important if you never listened to "Like a Rolling Stone" by Bob Dillion. But I would feel a little bad for you if you have never really listened to Time by Pink floyed.
            Time has an important message that you should not let your life slip by. It doesn't really tell you what to do, but it much better than the other songs.
          2. Cats in the Cradle by Harry Chapin has a great message. It tells you that you get out of a relationship what you put into it, and that you should sieze the day. These are important messsenges, and they are done well in the song.
          3. Forever Young is a good song, because it expresses a real emotion, that is productive to explore. Thinking about mortality is benificial unlike the way that Bob Dillion is just expressing his joy at someone who used to be Rich, getting their come-up-ins in his song "Like A Rolling Stone", that Rolling Stone was the highest achiviment of Western Music.
          4. Hallelujah by Rufus Wainwright summerizes a lot of history and relationships in an insightful way.
          5. Just The Two Of Us by Will Smith allows people who are overly concerned with looking manley, see themselves as good dads.
          6. You can disagree with Charlene but "I've Never Been To Me" makes her argument about what is important in life very well.
          7. "Kiss An Angel Good Morning" by Charley Pride gives practical marriage advice. One by Creed is sort of Cheesy, but it is a great call for unity.
          8. What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong has a great message of appreciation. Armstrongs voice is great.

          Bad Poetry

          Hot Lips Grandma
          White paint peels from the door,
          rusty hinges let loose a loud creek.
          A small gray mouse scurries across the floor,
          as cockroaches wander around the house.

          I dread the encounter,
          puckering, grandma opens her arms.
          Her musty smell fills my nostrils,
          there is no escape...
          grandma's livery lips strike again.

          I don't want to die,
          let alone grow old.
          So mind don't show me,
          body grow cold.

          I cannot face
          the fate of man

          I am still waiting for life to bagan
          I am still waiting for a friend who is true
          I am still waiting for a little respect
          I am still waiting for life to make sense...

          And the ultra-sound
          shows a new little life
          My current concerns will now take a past tense.
