Philosophy night August 18, 2008
Should The Term Barbeque be changed to
something new? Consensus of the group was not reached
and many different points of view were given.
Idea 1: A new code word or sets of code words

heard. Another quote was “what I have to fight you

- Some had the opinion if a discussion
takes longer then 30 seconds on the field then it was a
waste of time to all involved.
