Coca-Cola is by far better than Pepsi.
Here's 10 reasons why.

1. You can buy stuff with the caps.
2. They support the Olympics.
3. They support local sports.
4. It tastes better. 'Nuff said.
5. More people like Coca-Cola than Pepsi.
6. The Coca-Cola Company owns other things like Sprite, Minute Maid, and Vault.
7. Coca-Cola is better.
8. Pepsi tastes funky.
9. I ran out of things to say.
10. I already told you.

Before I begin I'd like to point out that the resolution refers to the BEVERAGES Coca-Cola and Pepsi, and not their respective companies. So anything their companies do has no effect on which soda is better.

"1. You can buy stuff with the caps.
2. They support the Olympics.
3. They support local sports.
4. It tastes better. 'Nuff said.
5. More people like Coca-Cola than Pepsi.
6. The Coca-Cola Company owns other things like Sprite, Minute Maid, and Vault.
7. Coca-Cola is better.
8. Pepsi tastes funky.
9. I ran out of things to say.
10. I already told you."

1. You could disguise the Pepsi caps as Coke caps and sell them to people who would actually do that, and make a direct profit.

2. See my opening sentence.

3. See above.

4. Your opinion is not fact. Sorry.

5. That makes it more popular, not better.

6. See #2.

7. Restating the resolution establishes nothing. Sorry.

8. See #4.

9. Then why didn't you just say 8 reasons?

10. You did? When?

As for my side of the resolution, I can't prove that one is better than the other, since it is a matter of opinion.

If this is opinion and not fact, and there is no way to prove which one is better, then why did you decide to become my opponent? The whole point is to debate, not to say it's impossible!

I could ask you the same question about starting this debate.

I spy 10 dropped points. And no more new points in the next round.

Vote CON.

What do you mean 10 dropped points?

I hope that means I didn't get kicked off...

Also, it's the voter's opinion that matters, not ours.

The 10 dropped points were all 10 reasons why Coca-Cola is better than Pepsi, which you failed to respond to.

And it doesn't matter which one the voter's like more, you vote on the debate, not the resolution.

This debate makes babies cry. Pro bases his arguments on opinion, and then acts like an ignorant fool. Con brings up valid arguments against it, and then states he cannot prove either is better because it's a matter of opinion.

Neither of you could do LD.

But it shouldn't be a tie, because you didn't even challenge my points.

And why are you two months late?

No it doesn't. You're just a little grumpy because it's a tie and neither of us are winning. :P

It'll be no clothing, since last time I checked, wildebeests don't wear clothing.

Or drink alcohol, for that matter.

And I do, indeed, have a father.
