A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down (perhaps or perhaps not in the most delightful way).
Debate Rounds (1)
I will begin by making observations, then moving on to my opening (and final) arguement.
Observation 1: Any sugar in the medicine is considered a part of the medicine and should not be counted as a seperate entity.
Sugar is often used as a sweetener for unsavory, bland, or tasteless commodities. With today's modern medicine, we can enhance medicine to make it taste more appealing. I will admit, the flavorless medicine in her day may have been horrid, but we are talking about today, right now.
It is not recommened that you give children pure sugar, because with all of the diseases the little rugrats have (ha, excuse the laugh please. Moving on), they may have a serious medical reaction to it.
Aside from those not-so-rare-anymore cases, sugar would still only provide a masking taste to it, and not one that even compares to enhanced tasting medicine. Not only that, but it doesn't really help it go down, it just helps with the taste.
It is for these reasons that I urge you to
my opponent also says that "sure the flavourless medicince must have tasted horrid". first up i would like to poitn out you sir are an idiot. as flavourless things have no taste !
my opponent thinks that sugar does not help the medicine go down , i would like to challange my opponent when he says mary poppins has no logic and no evidence , surely that a women who is capable of flying using an umbrella and landing it with the percsion of a helicopter pilot and can also make a house spotless in minutes and break out into wonderful compelling songs and get the general public to join in at random in public parks , must have some logic without explination.
As mary poppins is an expert in her field of work (supper nanny). She of course knows what she is talking about , i would like to see my opponents creditals for mis-crediting her , as she is far more qualified in that field of work.
further more apart from mary poppins being mentally insane , she is right when she says it helps it go down . As she is undoubtly refering to the taste , making it easier to swallow , nowhere does she say its actually good for you.
you say you refer totodays modern medicine , my response is that if you have medicince that actually works and has no bad taste to it you are quite clearly a witch and should be burned at the stake.
also my opponent suggests that you should vote for him , I think that anybody who votes for him is of obviously a flamming homosexual or an idiot , perhaps both.
I urge all straight people to vote for me , along with all smart people , because if you dont im going to laugh at you and call you childish names of course.
