Nah, I wasn't fooled by the fake Ian.

But there was this weird geeky-lookin' dude here in place of SchroDog...

Nyk was masquerading as Schro Dog with a really cheesy fake smile...

and fighters were talking about patching each other up instead of taking each other down.

I figured I accidentally took a wrong dimensional corner somewhere, but luckily I've made it back.

unharmed.

I think.

i remember that time quiet well heike
that schro-dog mock up was really scary
glad he is back to his normal self!


you know between debates we are friendly people
just a litte saber rattling now and then
nothing really serious, the bruises will heal quick


so no strange parallel universe

If you use that source in a debate, and no one reads it, does it still help your case?

To be honest, some of my debates look more like cautionary examples than like schooling, depending on just how the topic and my opponent and myself all come together (or fail to).

I have my wonderful little textbook moments of systematically proving my position to be objectively correct (or at least universally preferable by an attractively posed utilitarian standard). But far more often I embrace the cruel reality that for a preponderence of the evidence, all one really needs is to build a significant credibility advantage. Paradoxically, depending on which tactics are called for, that advantage can actually be achieved at the expense of ones ability to win friends and influence people (an ability that some would probably consider very close to the central purpose of debate).

*Hears Heike and spits whiskey then falls off stool, doubled over laughing*

*Looks over at The Vagabond then curls into a ball, stops laughing and starts to whimper*

According to that source: Yes.

But I'm sure you've already noticed that you can use a couple of socratic questions on that subject to force me into acknowledging that if my position was correct I wouldn't bother posting.

*Heike wanders back into the pub. Seeing TWISI on the floor, she shakes her head and walks over to her.

*Heike hauls TWISI up off the floor, hands her another shot, and gives her a friendly pat (more like a whack, actually) on the back.

Come on, girl, buck up! You're a Fighter! You know the drill! Never let 'em see you sweat! .... (or whimper).

Now, down that shot and show some bravado.

TWISI, dare I say you have found your new avatar? Beautiful picture!

A ping to fans of the "snipe 'n snarl" school of debating:
Ann Coulter to Debate Bill Maher in NY, Boston and Chicago

Should be interesting, if it's broadcast.

Preview:

Bill Maher - "You Are!"

Ann Coulter - "No, You Are!"

Bill Maher - "[Insert Big Word Here] Proves You Are!"

Ann Coulter - "[Insert Condescending And Arrogant Tone/Generalization] Clearly Demonstrates That You Are!"

MemoryShock - :shk:

Yes, the actual topic of the debate, regardless of what they're supposed to be discussing, will probably be: "Ann Coulter Debates Bill Maher".

I think this will prove to be the funniest thing to happen in the first quarter of 2009.

To help increase the lulz factor, Bill should be smoking a funny cigarette and Ann carrying a paper mache baby to chew on.

I'd rather get my little brother drunk and try to get a word in edgewise while he's lecturing me on labor law than watch THAT debate.

You're psychic!

Or perhaps I just took your good idea... ?

Either way Greta, and her profound angst, will stand in for me until such time as it is no longer appropriate, which will probably be until the end of the tourney... for me.

Who knows, maybe she's gonna be my lucky avi and David will slew Goliath. Girl's gotta dream!
