Well, there are also some differences: At presidential debates everyone dresses nice, combs their hair before going out and very rarely calls anyone else "poopyface."

#9 Everyone’s always talking at the same time.

#8 The taller ones give the impression of having the most authority.

#7 The younger ones are generally discounted due to inexperience.

#6 If someone says, "I never said that," it means they totally said that.

#5 When someone has the floor, everyone else tunes out to plan their counterattacks.

#4 Everyone's nice at the beginning. Halfway through it's all childish name-calling.

#3 And booing. And eye-rolling.

#2 Everyone thinks their way is the only way.

#1 The handshakes at the end? Total bull.
