Thank you! I understood not everything, but it was very interesting!
Actually, the last discussions had less participants than the first ones. And I'm not sure about what could be the next topics. Because topics must be 1) something that everyone knows about, 2) something that wouldn't create rough disputes, 3) something interesting. If you have any ideas about what could be the next topics, please write your ideas here and I'll see if I can go on with these discussions.
P. S. In case that I'll go on with the discussions: I'm not sure that I'll make them every day.
Thank you. We already had a food discussion. Also when the new topic is ready, I put it's URL in the previous post. You can see links to next topics in all previous discussions.
Dreams is a very good idea. "About oneself" - I don't know, how many people would like to talk about themselves, but I could give it a try.
BTW, the next discussion I expect to make today (in 12 or less hours). Possibly it will be English proverbs. Hope I'll see you there. :-)
