I was remembering some quiz show from the early 90s which featured Jeremy Hardy and Graham Garden. It had this round in it where one of them made a very innocuous (and generally true statement) and the other then had to argue against it starting with, "I couldn't disagree more".
Anyway, I thought this may have some success on this old forum.
So, here's the on-line version.
Basically, I will post a 'fact' and the first person has to take the opposing view and try and prove me wrong. Once the replier has done so, they can state their own innocuous fact for others to disprove.
FACT: George W Bush is the worst American President of the 21st Century.
REPLY: I couldn't disagree more! The fact of the matter is that George W Bush has achieved so much for the United States that he should be considered the best American President of the 21st Century. Just as their own oil was about to run out, George finds some new reserves in the little known 51st State of Iraq. Not only can his citizens keep their gas-guzzlers going for another five years, but peace and stability reins supreme! Not only that, but George has invented a load of new words for the 21st Century! I'd call him a bit of a Renaissance Man!
COUNTER FACT: I think its fair to say that after tens of thousands of years of evolution, that Man is greater than Beast.
Away you go!
