Lovely SDog. It really brings out your eyes.



That was my thinking too.

Congratulations AshleyD on the win! That debate (both sides of it) could be a lesson in how to have fun while fighting, but Ashley really shone.

@Mem – no fair getting any sweeter now, okay? We'll have to find a color that's more pink than pink for the MemoryShock Fan Club if you do.

@SDog – Grandma, is that you?

@Orange – I hope your shoulder feels better! Take care of yourself!

@Ian, nyk – good luck to both of you

@FSBA – teaching high school? You are a brave brave man


@everyone else

How the heck is everyone? I haven't been around in here for a while. I can't keep up with it, you guys all post so damn fast.

Thanks a bunch, ADB. That means a lot.


Hey, Mick! You going to start debating again?


NYK: Tick tock, tick tock.

I don't know. I'm kind of scurred.


If I do, it's definitely going to be against MS. I've got to get some revenge. I want blood!

But he's one of the scariest of all!
I told him before I could never debate him because I'd spend most of my time looking up his vocabulary in a dictionary.

Vocabulary?

Wait a minute, I'll be right back!

One time I had to read a sentence of his 10x to figure out what the hell he was talking about. Check it out:

My head almost exploded.

Yup. Exactly. One debate with him and I'd feel like a
after reading the first paragraph of his opening statement. Way beyond my level of vocab. lol

So... um.... good luck with your vengeance plan. Keep a thesaurus handy.


The man is good.

Egads - the 'sledgehammer' technique. Slam down with a definitive but near unintelligibly overcomplicated answer in a way that allows disagreement to be rhetorically fragmented into semantic uselessness, as it must, in its specific contradiction, interact with the muddied glop ladled from the presented tarpit of verbage. "Absolutely" is the give-away.

Or, MS was just being 'precise'.

Hey...you're the one who used 'Oubliette' in a debate...in poetic context no less!!

Mick...my head exploded when I re-read that...

It was "vain oubliette". But no one remembers that. I was particularly proud of adding "vain" at the time; I thought it gave it a nice euphonious pacing.


Hmm, strange thing to anthropomorphize, an oubliette.


Edit: to note with amusement my own vanity, and officially and explicitly say "welcome back to the Pub, M1ck".

People remember "oubliette" and forget "vain."

That is hilarious.

I'd definitely going to have to join S-Dog into looking this up in the dictionary. MS and Ian are making my head hurt with those multisyllabic words. Massive kudos to the next person who can use 'Oubliette' in their next debate while having it make sense in context.
It should be an FCP contest.

Damn it Ashley ...

I'll be right back ...


Edit to add: It's tough being a stupid polyglot.

Wait! Before you go, look up 'anthropomorphize' for me. Better to make one trip instead of two. Or making me make my own to dictionary.com

Oh duh. Ok. I've heard that one before then. I actually heard people who do that in books and films suffer from a form of psychosis. Thanks a bunch. Won't forget it again.

absolutely, the vanity of the oubliette turned it from just being a rather odd metaphor into a work of art.

Although I didn't take it as an anthropomorphic "vain" – I mean, I thought you were just emphasizing the dead-endishness of an oubliette, not implying that it was subject to the sin of pride.

As for MemoryShock, I think it's the quotation marks that scare me more than the vocabulary. I can never figure out exactly what twist they're giving the sentences

Oscitate used it in our Skirmish, so he deserves first kudos. I only managed to rebut by pointing out that he hadn't paid the necessary fee to Ian yet (it was while Ian was out of town, so I was safe in saying so). But I haven't seen Oscitate since then
