okay ... just put it on Ebay whan I've conquered everyone. No problem. Is it signed by the author? If you can get him in a internet chat room you can probably get him to sign it?

No, if you win the book will be surgically attached to your left breast.

These are some great matchups and by reading some initial responses everyone seems to have the idea down already. Some seem far better than others but I will keep names to myself and take note. I wish everyone debating good luck and hopefully I can advance far enough to make a name for myself around here.


Good Luck All and I am glad people have the balls even if they arent very knowledgable about how this works. As previously mentioned, practice makes perfect.

Darn, hard topic.

This is going to be a hard one....

The artillary is going on!

I have to confess, as usual, I don't like some of the topics. But whatever. At least I got an okay one.

let's see here:

1. NephraTari V ilovepizza: "The US is more sinned against than sinning." - that sounds like something Bush woudl say. I don't even know what the hell the topic means. I hope the contestents can figure it out.

2. Loki V Amorymeltzer: "Global government (NWO) will actually be the best thing to happen to society." - a classic topic. I'll be happy to see some brain cells racing in this one.

3. Quicksilver V mig12: The Elite "Only the elite can truly successfully manage national affairs." - nice topic. I wonder how you'd convincely argue that only the elit can rule, though. (actually... )

4. Valhall V Phoenix: Special Interests - all i gots to say is holyee #. Whoever comes outta this one will be much stronger for it. I'm glad I'm nowhere near this pit.

5. Russian V John bull 1: Dictatorship/Democracy - very enjoyable.

6. Dreamz V DeltaChaos: Affirmative Action - good topic. I hope it can be debated well enogh

7. Nerdling V intrepid: National Leaders - I thought intrepid got the short stick on this one, but s/he carries well. I'll be watching the results of this one.

8. ktprktpr V Genya: School Exams - hehehe. Way to early to tell how the battle goes...

Not enough room for all of that.

Will have to shorten the Master to Mast.

Wow that was the most challenging debate yet!
Kudos to Ilovepizza and best of luck in the next round.

hehe on a side note.. I not only don't believe in god.. but don't believe in sin not to mention the fact that I am NATIVE AMERICAN...(ILP you have no idea how much it cut me to discusss the topics we did and not be on your side) I was tempted to forfeit from the onset.. as the topic required a person to view life from a christian point of view and I am not a christian.

I have to say though.. Ilovepizza put up a wonderful fight and I am honored to have had a chance to go head to head with him!

Well done!

I've read your stuff. You're good. This is going to be a rough one. Probably not as rough as my last one, but hey, who wants to live forever?... DIVE!!!
