Fortunately that picture hides the fact that my truck is, actually, normal-size, and I myself am 3'11".

Wait -- I mean, yes: buff much.

Whew! Great debate there, Semper. That was a 'tooth and nail' one! I think one word in the topic let me squeak by:

”Positive Thought Can Conquer Physical Malaise Better than Pharmaceuticals."
If it had been:
”Positive Thought Conquers Physical Malaise Better than Pharmaceuticals."

the bar would have been much higher, and I don't think I could have gotten away with being a bit cagey in response to some of your questions, as one judge mentioned.

I'm still wondering if my tactic of asking no SQ's, to encourage you into a more reactive role, was really as effective as I'd hoped. I've noticed you can build a solid rhetorical response around pretty much any ammunition that's handed to you; I wanted to avoid that.


An interesting range of feedback from the judges; thanks! Very interesting, it really shows the difficulty in these debates of trying to broadly appeal to different viewpoints in presentation, while remaining specific in rebuttal and case-building. This was one debate where the limits on citation counts and source quotes made things a lot tougher!

Rankings have been updated and I will await a response from Skyfloating so that Round 4 can begin with everyone on the same page...

Ooooooh! The bartender is back.


Make S-dog's a double. His zombie hamster passed away recently and he's in mourning.

I'm in the mood for something sweet and fruity. How about a Mimosa, please. And don't use the cheap stuff.

So you think sometimes it might seem like we have too much time on our hands.

Not as much as these guys: catsthatlooklikehitler

Oh, and this reminded me of some of Shock's debate topic descriptions:



Sorry, just lashing out in general.
More Akvavit please!

Lol, you must have to much time on your hands for even finding this site...

And I have to much time on my hands for following the link you provided...

Not at all, I'm just saying he uses too many words.

Do I detect a tone of resentment?

That sign made perfect sense to me. I'll shorten it for ya."Don't drive big trucks on weekends or holidays."


By the way SD, you have the best avatars on the site. I lol'd alot at the old lady and the hamster made my daughter laugh alot. I had to explain what a tin foil hat was for though and now she wants one for our new kitten. Craft of the week.

Smack attack:

Oooooh this debate with budski is going to be a breeze.
He doesn't know anything not Liverpudian.


I'm all over his "onion bag."
That doesn't sound right.
Still....
