Mosquitos? We've got every single natural disaster that a land can get, except volcanos. We've got 3 of the 4 indigenous species of deadly snakes for North America, all of the species of deadly spiders, some of the most evil hardened criminals in the world, and drunken rednecks who alternate between looking for holes, and creating holes...

...and You're afraid of some mosquitos?

Certainly not bad enough to justify moving to Texas- at least not for me. No offense.


I can only assume that photo of the Marine is you. I'd think you'd be right at home in Texas. Marines are about the only out-of-staters that we respect, cause they're the only ones that come close enough to being as tough as a native Texan.

The worst mosquitos in the world are in Canada...

I lost a good buddy to them once. They didn't even bother sucking his blood, they just carried him off. It was very sad.

What's really sad is that most people think that Far Side with the giant mosquito flying away from a deflated body lying on the beach is a joke. Larson was there, man, he's seen things!

A bit of light hearted commentary before the next round?

Mosquitos in Wisconsin were pretty bad.....but I believe my Vodka concentrated blood supply took care of their interest.....


Btw, congrats to the Round 2 participants.


OTS is going to be a great opponent....

lol Let's just hope the debate topic one of us will be discussing isn't

"The mosquitos in Canada are worse than the mosquitos in Wisconsin"

Looks I won the first round. Good job raideur.

I'll sharpen my knives in anticiption of kenshiro2012! I have a very bad feeling I'll be up against theLibra in the future, so I better get my greens to boost my brainpower! Ill post my debate predictions when i get off of work...

why aren't the scores shown of the outcome of the debates???

is my debate the only one in which scores were shown???

no one else deserves to be embarrassed except me

TSA
Standard operating procedure.


No, I'm just kidding, I don't know why the other scores weren't made available.

I'm looking forward to the second round, wonder what the topic could be...

I'm a little disappointed that I won..I was arguing in defense of Putin's power grab, which makes me doubly the devil's advocate.


Maybe I'll actually get to argue a position I believe in this time around.


Cheers to the organizers, and good luck to my fellow competitors!

Release the lions!

Oh..sorry JJ...

TSA, I got a U2U that the scores wouldn't be released, so that's a bit odd.

WyrdeOne: I, too, hope you get something you actually believe in, because I'll probably believe in my side, then, too


Release the Christians!

(had sheep before, but figured that might be misinterpreted as something other than the anthisis of "release the lions". I suspect folks will get this reference, though
)

I too, find that odd........also, I believe in the past that scores were only reported up to the majority, i.e. once seven affirmitives out of thirteen decisions came back it was posted.........there you have the best of both worlds........a score and omission of what would consitute a potential embarrassment......

....also, a I really enjoyed the judges statements at the end of the past debates.......a variety of comments not only give all involved some relevant feedback, but we can participate in the behind the scenes aspect by association.......kind of cool.....

At any rate, I am very anxious to recieve the next topic as I have plenty of work to do............Gotta Love It

I thought the scores weren't revealed cause the winner won by a total landslide, so its to prevent embarassment?

Personally, I thought my debate was alot closer than the post by Nygdan made me believe.

Oh, the humanity.

lol, I was going to make some comment about hopefully going up against kptr in the future, and realized it would be slamming everyone else k'd be up against.
I don't think it was an intentional snub

I dunno 'bout that Jake. I might just have to kick your hairy ass back to the jungle where it belongs ...


Here are my debate predictions:

ROUND 2:

JungleJake vs. WyrdOne: WyrdOne by a slim margin

OfftheSTreet vs. MemoryShock: Even toss up; their super-powers seem even

theLibra vs. Howmuchisthedoggy: theLibra, clear and fair

ktprktpr vs. kenshiro2012: ktprktpr; but i've been wrong before and mean no offense to kenshiro.

Round 3:

WyrdOne vs [OfftheStreet/MemoryShock]: My instinct tells me its [OfftheStreet/MemoryShock]

ktprktpr vs. theLibra: The topic will be decisive. I know my math but I don't neccessarially have the time or maturity to make my side look like a page from Scientific America. I'm going to assume a little luck with the topic and root for myself here: ktprktpr

And... Round 4:

ktprktpr vs. [OfftheStreet/MemoryShock]: ktprktpr by the slimmest of margins (A ktprktpr vs. OIMD repeat!?)

thus concludes my predictions.
