What about this one:

"Is our present education enough, or do we have to still 'rub elbows' to get ahead?

That's a good topic Mem!

What do YOU think?

Assuming you mean the United States education system:

It's terrible. I feel like our education system fails past middle school and into high school.

Too many of the same subjects are rehashed (and never properly taught to begin with) and so many important subjects are completely avoided.

Sorry feels like it falls a little flat after my extremely long absence. It wasn't my usual loafing exactly. I've been under a lot of stress and I had to take some time from pretty much everything that could possibly wait to mellow out before my temper got the best of me.

Results and new matches go up tomorrow, so help me god.

Zomg, Vags.

No need to apologize here.

Just good to see you didn't explode or anything. Spontaneous human combustion is a real threat.

Thats a false concern, (our debate related) she just wants you to judge our debate and get this madness over with.

I don't blame you love, but life calls sometimes.

Ladies and Gentleman, I do belive in the time slowing phenomena; My Wife calls it the "Macy's Hangover"....I do believe that they have a sale starting tomorrow.

I have my eye personally on the BRAND NEW fuzzy beard shaver....that I have been told can be used from the comfort of your easy chair...!!!

You never looked so good in front of your TV before...*Tommy Lee Jones grins*

Round 4:

TLomon v Intrepid: Dividing Iraq into several independent nations would likely improve the peace and stability there.

TruthWithin v Memoryshock: A North American Union between Canada, the US, and Mexico would significantly strengthen all three nations in the long term.

We will meet again.


I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed, I hate losing. But I'm not surprised either.

I also think the judges were correct. I spent too much time just trying to disprove your position, which is only half of the game. I'll keep that in mind for future debates.

Either way, good luck on this next round. NAU for the win?

Round 4 Debate Threads are up with eerily similar titles. I should be able to start on the secondary matches tomorrow.

These next two rounds should be incredibly interesting.

Let's look at the tale of the tape for a moment, shall we?

Intrepid: Highest seed left in tournament. Ranked 3rd overall (18 points). 7 matches, 4-3 record, current streak: 4 wins. Win pct: .57
Best fighter ever defeated (by rank): Semperfortis (20 points- then Champion).

Memoryshock: 2nd Highest seed left in tournament. Ranked 4th overall (17 points). 10 matches, 6-4 record, current streak: 3 wins. Win pct: .60 Best fighter ever defeated (by rank): Sublime620 (7 points).

TruthWithin: 3rd Highest seed left in tournament. Ranked 7th* overall (10 points). 4 matches, 3-1 record, current streak: 3 wins. Win pct: .75
Best fighter ever defeated (by rank): Skyfloating (7 points).

TLomon: Lowest seed left in tournament. Ranked 8th* overall (8 points). 4 matches, 3-1 record, current streak: 3 wins. Win pct: .75
Best fighter ever defeated (by rank): Semperfortis (20 points- then Champion).

* denotes tie for rank position.

BTW- I came into this tournament ranked #1. Now I'm #2 and could easily slip to #3. I will be accepting/issuing challenges not long after this tournament ends. There ain't a whole lot on my schedule for late May.
