|About Me:||I actually live in the US, but my location is a secret. Sorry cyberstalkers. I enjoy seafood. I enjoy mutton. I enjoy beef. I do not enjoy carrots. I do not enjoy apples. I do not enjoy onions. I enjoy the internets. I do not enjoy work. I enjoy debate. I do not enjoy the Sept-Oct 2009 LD topic. I enjoy math. I do not enjoy history. I enjoy reading. I do not enjoy writing about myself. I make bad jokes. Often. Expect more as I become more socially open with DDO. A lot more.|
|Activities:||Forensics, Debate, Tennis, Fencing, Interact (community service), Scouts (although, as an Atheist I technically cannot participate), Piano (how mundane).|
|Beliefs:||People are by nature irrational. You can make the most eloquent arguments against somebody's beliefs, but they will only change their opinion if they wanted to change their opinion to begin with. After doing some research, I think that panarchy is the best system for the world, idealistically. Pragmatics beg to differ. Minarchy is also valuable, only to an extent. Government should be a smooth, efficient machine, not a clunking behemoth. I am completely uneducated on a variety of social issues (just check out my stance on the BIG ones) and would really appreciate some education =).|
|Books:||Most anything. Asimov ftw. Vonnegut, not so much. I do the mainstream pulp fiction, though science fiction and fantasy are cool with me.|
|Movies:||Everyone's favorites. If lots of people like it, I probably do. Exceptions: Twilight, Harry Potter 2-5. 6 was awesome.|
|Music:||LP, DCFC, MCR, PAtD, Cp, GC, GD, Nb (earlier stuff), OR, TPS, Japanese stuff. I'm fairly mainstream. Rock/Alternative/Some (rare) rap.|
|Quotes:||"When you buy a toaster, if it explodes in your face, there's a law that says, you know, your toasters need to be safe"-Barack Obama|
|Sports Teams:||Completely sports illiterate. Yeah. Somehow, I still won the last March Madness bracket by picking people based on how awesome their names were. Gonzaga ftw!.|
|TV Shows:||House, Scrubs, Mythbusters, One Way Out (hilarious - a great watch if for nothing else than watching someone with a British accent beat the crap out of himself), SNL.|
NOTE: This is my first debate on this website but only SERIOUS debaters please who fully understand LD (Lincoln Douglas) style value-based debate. It is because economic sanctions do not properly preserve justice, I urge an affirmation of today's resolution; "Resolved, Economic sanctions ought not be used to achieve foreign policy objectives." To clarify this round, I offer the following definitions: Economic sanctions: the imposition of international economic boycotts and embargoes. Achiev...
Although the cg of avatar was good, the movie contained within it atrocious logic and realism problems. Let me point out some examples: 1. Floating mountains are completely absurd 2. Runoff was coming off the floating mountains even tough there was clearly no ice or snow on top 3. In the final battle, the humans are retarded enough to fly through a canyon at like 25 mph when they could easily fly over the mountains and not be ambushed. Also the jet could fly a very high altitude and dro...

To clarify, this is the LD debate topic for September and October of 2009. Both debaters shall be debating "resolved: public high school students in the United States ought not be required to pass standardized exit exams to graduate." This debate shall follow a slightly altered LD format. R1 is for introductions and no arguments. In R2-4, both sides will present cases, starting with Neg. The structure should follow: R1: Introductions R2: NC; AC/AR R3: NR; 2AR R4: 2NR; 3AR Both sides...
