Weekly Meeting Minutes for January 19, 2021

Here are the notes for today, and the agenda for next week.

REMINDER: You have until midnight tonight to let Brandon know if you plan to compete in the International Speech Contest next week.

The Table Topics Contest was NOT held today and will happen next week.

Today, we held a Mock Table Topics Contest with the question “Is it ever okay to lie?”

              Peter – Winner

The rest of the meeting was a Table Topics event with the following questions:


Greg – Should there be tougher penalties for driving while distracted?

Nick – Some of the major car manufacturers are now producing vehicles that allow you to check Facebook via a dashboard screen. Do you think this will increase accidents? And if so, should the manufacturer be liable?

Dick – Should passengers be allowed to play with the radio or climate controls while you are driving? What’s the etiquette on this?

Ben – We now have cars that can park themselves. How soon until we have cars that actually do the driving? And what will our roads be like as a result?

Nick – Self Driving Cars…yes?


Andy – What was your favorite cartoon growing up? Why?

Aimee – Are children’s cartoons harmless entertainment? Or are they thinly veiled 30 minute commericals for soon to be launched toy lines?

Peter – There are many famous cartoon heroes like Superman or Batman. If you had the chance, what superhero would you be?

Rhonda – Every time Charlie Brown goes to kick the football Lucy just pulls it away from him and he goes flying. Should Charlie Brown finally wise up, or there something of merit in his quiet optimism?
