Do you have a favorite topic?: Equality is a big one... this can pretty much extend into any topic, really.

ETA: Non-debate wise, I have a good amount of knowledge about computer stuff, I consider myself a semi-expert in all things knitting (yes, I'm a dork, I know), and I have a BA in English, so theoretically, I can write well.
