I would prefer the 1 hour and just go for it...

Also list some topics your considering if you would...

When do you want to do this thing as well?

I'm free most evenings after 6 or so...

Tonight is bad as "The Unit" comes on at 10 and I never miss it...

Unless you want to go "Late Night"

I'm always up and on here around 11pm my time (EST)

If anyone cares, I'm over here in the corner sulking, feeling neglected, rejected, and ignored.

Still no judgment on my video game debate. SDog totally ignored my entire post and the avatar I made for him (yeah, it was sort of a joke but I at least expected a response). No word from Nyk537 so I guess that debate is in the toilet. And no word on the mystery topic debate.


Congrats ADB, that was really close. In fact I personally expected it to go the other way. But then again, perhaps I'm too biased to judge objectively, as I personally think augmentation is a huge waste of money and a surrender to men objectifying the female body and basing the value of a human being on a set of measurements.

And I refuse to congratulate you, SDog, because I'm mad at you for ignoring me. Yep, I'm a [insert word for breeding female dog here] sometimes. Trust me, I've earned the right.

Reply to semper:

One hour it is.

We can start tommorow 3pm your time. That would be 9 pm my time (Europe). Im currently OK with staying awake until about 3 in the morning, so that should work out.

Choose a Topic and a Side:

Only listing topics which can easily be won from either side

* Online Friendships are Real
* ATS has become too mainstream
* The U.S. is the best place to live
* Humans are a degenerate race
* Mass-tourism is bad
* Reality is an Illusion
* Politics are important
* Hollywood (The Movie-Industry) has more power than Banks

If none appeal to you, make your own suggestions.

I like the Humans are a Degenerate Species.. Not Race.. If that cool with you and I want the Pro on that...

Or the ATS topic may be pretty fun as well.. I can do either side of that one

Man I loooove the "Reality is an Illusion" topic.
I be happy to debate the pro on that at a future date.

Well, my response is up...


We'll see if The Vagabond can make this tactical move he was claiming...I have to admit, he did get under my skin...

TWISI, that was a tough one and I had no idea which way it would go. We got our boob debate and thank god it's behind us


@Heike - you should have heard me cursing when we got the side assignments for the debate. I was supposed to be arguing anti-enhancement in TWISI and my original formulation. I was ready to string semper up for not only giving me the wrong side, but making me prove that augmentation is NECESSARY for female empowerment
I spent hours swearing, until I realized that I could get behind the idea that having the option is necessary.

Thanks for the congrats everyone


EDIT: to add a congratulations to SDog because I was too wrapped up in my own head to do so earlier
SDog – nicely done, you are back on track

Yeah Heike, I'm wondering about a judgement on that debate myself. Don't feel too alone. Congrats to SDog and Ding.

OK. "ATS has become too mainstream". Semperfortis will be arguing the pro position, Skyfloating will be arguing the Con-Position.

Posting must be done within 1 hour of the last post with the exception of sleeping-hours for Skyfloating ánd Working-Hours for semperfortis. These are defined as follows:

Sky Sleeping Hours: 9pm-6am (3am-12am my time)
Semper Working Hours: 9am-6pm (6am-3pm my time)

If we're quick we'll be able to finish within 2 evenings.


This means your hours between 6pm and 9pm are the debating hours.

Each player may use one 30 minute extension, if needed.


Alternative Option: Weekend

Wouldn't it be simpler to do this on a day that neither of you are working?
That way you guys can hammer it out in one day, which seems to be more in the spirit of the one hour speed debate.
2 cents.

That would be an idea. I'll add an edit to my post.

And after this debate I look forward to challenging you on the nature of reality

Can't wait debating that on a virtual forum.
Oops, I think I just won.

Either way works for me, but the "one day' debate sounds like more fun..

Saturday 12 o'clock noon your time, 6pm my time. We'll be done the same day.

MemoryShock: Set us up!

Great, now we'll have the anticipation of an epic skyfloater hovering over us all week. A cloud of fearsome portent.

This place is fun.

The current Vagabond/MM Debate: Thats epic. Anybody following it?

I look forward to my weird debate with semper. I tossed a coin for sides.

Yes. I was a little surprised by Vagabond's departure from case-building in the last reply, focusing solely on Socratic Questions. MemoryShock certainly seems to have built up some intertia; I'm eagerly awaiting the next reply.

Epic indeed. I wonder if either of them will be able to stand after the sixth (!) round.
