    Comm 101 Speech

    I got to choose a topic to do a persuasive speech on in Communications 101. I chose ephedrine and why it should not be banned. This will be fun...oh well at least I'll learn a bunch of info about ephedrine. Did you know that aspirin caused more deaths in 1993 then ephedrine has altogether? Bah, dumb fda. oh well, wish me luck.

    Also make sure you pop a few before you present to show them how safe it is.

    Just make sure you don't use dumb statistics like "Did you know that Aspirin killed more people in 1993 than ephedrine ever has?"

    Stats like that will make you seem like a misinformed dweeb.

    Why do you say that Gyno? I certaintly wouldn't state the fact that like if that's what you are stating. I have a week to perfect this speech and I want it to be perfect... Almost done with the outline.

    heathj, I was a comm major myself.
    I'm not sure if you've given your speech or not yet, but I'd like to give ya a pointer.

    Your speech is very specific and would be appropriate if your class was full of bb'ers, but I'm betting its not.

    While the topic is very interesting to you but I bet you'll have the majority of the class yawning and saying WTF I never have, and probably never will take this stuff...what do I care about this for and why should I listen to this speech?

    One of the keys to a good speech is that its appropriate for your audience.

    I'd try to pick a subject that would have a greater impact on your target audience.
    Why the death penalty should be abolished
    Why you should drink more water
    Why you should avoid eating large fish
    Why you should exercise
    Why excessive tipping hurts the economy so much
    Why investing in retirement accounts causes a greater gap between the rich/poor in american society
    How to create a proper diet
    How to create a good workout regiment
    How to invest properly for a speedy retirement

    Thanks for the ideas geoff, but if we wanted to turn in a topic, it had to be 2 weeks ago

    Wish I had asked you ahead of time, those are some good ideas. Thanks though. Comm 101 blows.

    Haha, thanks. Lets hope everyone else is somewhat interested as well. At least it's a fairly short speech. 5-7 minutes.
