HI everyone what's up?

It's unfortunate that the debates just started... I'm going to have to do without my laptop for one whole day...

Your opening statement, that's what's up! Nice quick response time.



Beer me, please, bartender.

Hi Frank


I saw you posted your opening already. Fast work.

If it helps with the laptop situation, I'm a slow worker so probably won't have a response up until tomorrow nightish (Eastern Time Zone)

Alright then, so I shouldn't need to worry about time.


I really like the topic of this debate!

I always love to think about stuff like if the media is making public trials unfair and things like that.

I like to think about these kinds of things... they interest me.

Good luck to you too.

Now, I need to do math homework, so, I'm done with ATS for the night. Good night people... I have school stuff to do.

You don't have to be, as you've posted your first closing, but you do such a good job at it, and that beer looks so tasty, that I will say "thank you bartender!".

*drinks deeply*

Ah, nice to be able to have the second opening statement!

Then, I'll keep at it until my services are no longer needed and another newbie fighter takes my place behind the bar.

There was no ill intent meant...
...I was so used to your previous avatar is all and then you switch to a red head who has been associated with ADB.

But stunning contrast with the eyes and hair. You have excellent taste...

Wouldn't call myself seasoned.....my first debate is still up in the air.

....not so subtle question buried in there somewhere....

I have to thankyou guys for giving me the position you have on this subject, wow from what I have learned already, I am on the right side of the coin, now to put together in such a manner that it is convincing to anyone who reads the evidence.

No thanks needed; the positions are decided randomly...

Just some behind the scenes info for all our newer fighters. In the debate tournaments topics and positions are assigned completely randomly. That is to say that once the topics are decided, who gets what topic is the luck of the draw, and pro/con positions are decided via a coin flip.

This ensures moderator impartiality and puts all fighters on equal footing so to speak. Thus sometimes we get topics and sides we agree with and sometimes we don't. But Shock and Semper do not go around analyzing posting histories in order to match up fighters to topics and sides.

Just to add to what S-Dog put so completely

You are judged on your debating skills.... Not the topic..

I guess the best way to put it is


YOU are judged, not the TOPIC



new topics

top topics
