I think super foods are good because it is an important part of our daily lives. Anyone can accept I,m just doing it for a grade heehee. Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!

Con

I accept. The BOP is on Pro.


He provides only one argument -- that super foods are an "important part of our daily lives." He doesn't prove this objectively. They aren't an important part of my life at all, so this contention falls.

The reason Pro cannot uphold his BOP, though, is because he cannot prove -- and has not proven -- super foods as objectively good. Tastes and preferences are objective, and he would need to construct an objective standard for evaluation. He hasn't done that. Vote Con.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct goes to Con because Pro admitted he didnt care about the debate. Spelling and grammar goes to Con because lo....ol is not a word. Convincing arg goes to Con, as Pro did not fulfill BoP. Neither side had sources.

Reasons for voting decision: Con clearly wins on arguments. Pro loses on both S&G and Conduct for his unnecessary extension of "lol."

Reasons for voting decision: Props to Con grabbing this easy win. Spelling to Con because of random "loo...ool" by Pro, Arguments because Pro failed to fulfill BoP, as Con said.
