Interesting - is the 'no videos' rule new for this tournament? I haven't seen that before.

I suppose it avoids the problem of having something like: "please watch this 5-minute vlog of me berating and ridiculing my opponent's argument."

After all, that's what FCP is for.

In addition to Schrodingers Dog's sentiments, I would like to add my appreciation of the hard work that goes into creating the awesome debate title-puns:

Round 1: antar vs 44soulslayer: Two Be Or Not Two Be?

Your hard work is appreciated, and even tolerated.

Schro Dog...Thanks...


Ian...Video Rule is for the tournament only and is, as with all rules, negotiable for Challenge Mathes...


Skeptic1...I come up with the titles on the spot. If it ain't particularly clever then my brain froze and I gave up...


Did I miss anything...oh yeah...THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!!!!

Edit to correct ADB to Skeptic1...by the way, I love the new avatar but I thought I keep thinking ADB when I see it...

It can be really difficult. When that was my job, there were times when it crossed my mind that I could just change a debate topic to something easier to play off of.

What's going on with my first debate, Shock? Is it just going to hang out there for a while waiting for Benarius? Or, do I need to wait to hear from Semper on that?


That's a semperfortis question...

OMG! I really TRIED to read and study Shakespeare, it was too hard and I just couldn't. I know somewhere I have heard of the school of thought that he was not always the author of his work, but where? I did not believe it and so never looked any further.

Any of the other subjects I could have walked into with confidence, but 'this', OY Vey...

And to top it off I am SOOoo hungover...

Ok shaking, nervous as all get out, but I can do this, right?

You guys are just mean!

True, lets just hope I am the favorite in this tournament like last night!

I did have a ball, but I was horrible at karaoke. Luckily they were not asking my voice to dance...

As for pool? Well lets just say its been a while.


Now to be or not to be, that is the question right?

Pen and paper at side, going into google and any other search engine to find the pressing questions which lay like a ton of bricks on my ponding head.

Oh, bummer. This could have been a great topic, except for the phrasing:

PC vs MAC, Finally The Answers

Macs are PCs.

I only mention this to encourage quickly advancing the debate beyond quibbling definitions.

I can live with knowing that


And I love the new avi too, Skeptic1. But it doesn't make me think of me


 


I am so excited for all the debates, but I'm especially interested in this one:
Round 1: Skyfloating vs visible_villain: "It's All A Fairly Tale"

I love my topic, too. But that might be the closest to my heart of all the topics this round.

And my opponent has already posted his opening, so I'd better get to work
