Conversation topics

I would like to suggest that we have a thread were we can post potential topics for conversations. Some people might have some ideas that it would be nice to share. Our tutors, at least in Russian, they have some good topics based on the courses that provide but I think that a brainstorming is always useful.
I particularly enjoy group conversations because you have the opportunity to think without stress while the other person talks. And of course because the conversation becomes more interesting when there are more different oppinions. Unfortunately there is not much participation in group discussions, the reason could also be the time schedule, but in any case it would be nice to hear from you what kind of subjects you find interesting in general like news, sports, etc or any specific ones like a book, a movie etc
