I will not write the rest answers because it is not honestly if I saw it in another comments) Thank you!

  • 244

Yes! It's lack of hair! Congratulations!

Actually, I didn't think that this competition would end so soon.))

This is the last topic of English discussions, so I want to thank here all it's participants. It was a pleasure talking to you all!


Yes, it was realy wonderful! Thank you very much, it was a great idea to create these topics! I do not want to stop this communication))) So I offer to continue if there are still interested.

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.


I suggest to talk about favourite games or toys. Even if we became adults many of us still like to play no matter which game

Thanks, Willow-Twig.


My ideas: Food; What impressed you most of all lately?; About myself; About our dreams.

You can give the link to the new topic in the previous topics (where many people writes comments).

Hi Bmv89!

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. :-)


I'll be there when I can))


Good ideas for new topics.


What about Russian riddles but given in English. And people should give riddles by themselves.

  • 244

It would be nice. And participants could also invent riddles in English.
