No, I never had a debate team when I studied. Just realized how nice it will be, If crossed and those like things so that I would have some more improved in my lifestyle while arguing with outsiders. It is a good thing if every school applied that to students during school days. So that a students power will be increased when facing hard times like quarreling with bad guys, fighting for a good cause, etc.,

Yeah I think the ability to argue well and to persuade is very useful, and not just for lawyers and things like that. It can be a really valuable skill for anyone.

I didn't, I was a bit shyer back then. If I were there today though I probably would. I am much more vocal with my opinions these days and do all I can to back them up with research and facts. I get pretty passionate though and I am sure I would be removed from more than one stage, lol.

I didn't then either, and kind of wish I had in high school. I had so much freetime and I was always interested, but our debate team was just 2 guys. They were both sort of "cool kids" and they were best friends. Oh, and one was the brother of one of the YouTube founders and the other was the son of two important politicians. Kind of intimidating! If there had been other people I would have been more likely to do it.
