So, I respond to myself? All there is are the opening statements and my 1st response.

From the rules:


Each debate must post within 24 hours of the timestamp on the last post. If your opponent is late, you may post immediately without waiting for an announcement of turn forfeiture. If you are late, you may post late, unless your opponent has already posted.

Skep, just go ahead with your next post making your case in the debate.

If your opponent doesn't respond then, as is the case in Ian's debate, it will probably be a forfeit.

If you like I can post some arguments up here for you to bounce off of.

People are always telling me I can argue about anything.

You are free to make another post further explaining your position in the debate. With nothing to rebut it could be a short post, but between your last post and this one you get to lay twice the references and socratic questions down at once, which gives you the initiative in the debate.

Forfeits usually happen after an opponent misses two posts, but that call is really in the hands of MemoryShock and Semperfortis.

Thank you, Super, for a good fight. A valiant effort from a neophyte who came late to the battle. Your strategy was interesting and unexpected, and I actually had to do a little thinking here and there to respond effectively.


Well you didn't expect me to refer to the loonies who deny global warming did ya??


Was certainly fun and challenging to take that position, I had to put my Prius in the garage and hire a Hummer for five days to get into character - just call me "Stanislavski's Fighter."!

Hmm.

Do I seem any less scary now, perhaps?

Well my closing is up, so stick a fork in me 'cause I'm done....

Have actually learnt an awful lot in the past five days. I'm impressed with myself - and thats a rare state of mind for me.

Mines a pint of guiness please Mr.Bartender. I need something substantial....

I think I'd like to have a nice mudslide. After finishing up the global warming debate and then a couple hours of cutting wood with a chainsaw, I think I deserve it!




P.S. @ Skeppy: How do you like me now?

There's irony here; at least to we Californians who are forbidden by law from burning firewood. I'll join you in a drink, Heike.

I have been burning firewood for the past week. Thanks for the reminder; I need to stoke the coals...
