This week Jack brings in the topic of social conformity; we discuss if it is detrimental to society. Meanwhile, Gavin talks about whether it is more important to conform towards sportsman-like behaviour or win at any cost. The conversation derails as we end up talking about what it means to “win” in life.
This week Jack claims he is a “jack of all trades, master of none,” and a debate ensues about whether it is better to specialize in one particular area of expertise or to be generally well-rounded. Afterwards, Gavin brings up the topic of competitive video gaming (eSports), and if the activity should be included in the Olympics.
