May I remind folks that I'm Canadian? I can read the French.


That said, here's an idea. A picture debate. Speed picture debate. They say that a "picture says a 1000 words". A debate with nothing but pictures to make your point. GOOGLE UP!!!

Not enlightening but could be fun.

Interesting; I speak just enough French to annoy Canadians. Small world, eh?






* (oh, I'm in fine form tonight...) *


Edit to mention: I like the idea of the 'picture debate'. Pictures add a lot to a debate; I think they're an underutilized method of arguing a case. But a picture only debate? I fear it would descend into rebus.

That is interesting as Canadians speak just enough French to annoy the French.

So you're saying that rather than being the 'language of love', French is the international language of cross-cultural annoyance? Interesting thesis; I like it.

Yes, until the French start speaking English.
Then all bets are off.


Plus everyone knows that German is the language of love.

ARTHUR:
Well, u-- um, can we come up and have a look?

FRENCH GUARD:
Of course not! You are English types-a!

Well, what are you, then?

GALAHAD:
What are you doing in England?

FRENCH GUARD:
Mind your own business!

ARTHUR:
If you will not show us the Grail, we shall take your castle by force!

FRENCH GUARD:
You don't frighten us, English pig-dogs! Go and boil your bottom, sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called Arthur King, you and all your silly English k-nnnnniggets. Thpppppt! Thppt! Thppt!

Finished up Mr.Marrs' book. Seems he'll be on Coast to Coast tonight. I may just have to sit through that idiot George Noory to call in. Maybe I'll give him the plot to Half Life 2 this time around hehe.

By the 24th Century they all will be, and with perfect English accents, too.

*TWISI stumbles into the FCP, SEES the Maker's Mark on the shelf*

*Wonders if drinking at lunch on Monday is such a good idea...*

*Decides it's a great one and then - drinks the half of the bottle down in one go*


The boob debate is finally over. And I swear, on the Maker's Mark I hold in hand and sacred, that this will be the last time in my life I type these two words together... BREAST AUGMENTATION.

*wanders off, repeatedly muttering...never again....*

Ah, the debate catharsis effect. Wonderful to see. A little hard on the liquor supply, though.


Wanna debate abortion? That was hard on the liver, probably for me and wukkie both.

All I know is that I have learned, once again, to be careful of what I wish for... and that I am not taking anyomre topics that require me to to 'ho out' my avvie.

(I am also hoping that adb is a woman of her word and will stop using her imitation version of mine seeing as the wretched debate is finally finished).

I am a woman of my word and will retire the imitation-TWISI avi. Can I just wear it for another day or two before sending it off to avi heaven?

PS- did you u2u semper to let him know we're done already or should I do that now?

Semper is on the ball, he locked it up a while ago. As to the avvie, I guess... but it does make things a bit confusing around here.

On to a more pleasant subject, it was a true pleasure to debate with you even though the topic itself became such a grind. I hope you will extend the privilege to me again in the not too distant future (and I still think we have great untapped potential for intentional comedy in debate that should be explored).

Nunc est bibendum!

Anybody up for a debate on whether breast reduction should be covered by health insurance?


Wait, gals, before you take your avi's down I want to put one up just like 'em and REALLY confuse the boys for a day or two.

Debating you was indeed a pleasure, TWISI


And I hope we will have a rematch someday soon. I think I may take a week or so off right now, and there's a couple of people I'm working on recruiting to Fight Club who I've agreed to fight if they don't get another opponent ...

Hey Mr. Shock – you mentioned something about an "ish" sometime in December – any further word on that?

@Heike: go for it, that would be awesome! Maybe we can talk maria_stardust into an imitation-TWISI avatar too

I've got a good idea for a debate:

"Strudel Sucking Globenheimers. Obesity is a disease."
