Regarding people who get riled up and angry about the political discussions. I think it's important to remember one thing: it doesn't matter if someone on the internet disagrees with you. It just doesn't matter. Why even bother caring? There will always be people in the world who hold views that are diametrically opposed to yours. That will never change. So just accept that and move on with your life.

If I get into a disagreement with someone on this forum (or any forum) I generally reply twice. If it's not resolved by then I usually just stop replying. It's usually an indicator that nothing will get resolved by that point, so why bother? Make your position known and move on. There's no need to bother getting the last jab in. Be a bigger person and just move on to more important and productive things that create positive momentum in your life.

Great advice. But, Smithers, I just want you to know this is my second response to you, I think. After this, I'm going to call in a drone strike (equipped with a butt load of dull last jabbers) by (pick your forum diaetrically opposed person) for good measure to just end this positive advice - enough is enough, we need to get back to some high powered toxicity. This is my firm and final position, at least for the next 30 seconds. ;)

Amen, brother. It is hard to do sometimes.

I'm wondering if there could ever be one issue 100% of people would agree about?

I cannot think of one.

Could an alien invasion unite the human race? Probably not. There are going to be some people who would be fine with the human race being exterminated or becoming slaves.

A cute toddler being fed to an alligator on TV? Could everyone agree that would be a bad thing? Probably not as well.

Can you guys think of anything?
