Con

Pro has to argue that Con will definitely lose this debate.

First round is the pro's case. Not just acceptance.

Definitions: -

Con: the one who contradicts the proposed resolution.
Definitely: unequivocally; positively.[1]
Win: Gain the least voting points.
Debate: a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints.[2]

Boundary:

1) Neither candidate can use the the theory that this is an impossible debate in their argument. If you think it's impossible, don't accept. Simple.

Pro

I accept all definitions brought forth by my opponent. These will be the definitions we will use as a guide for this debate.

My opponent has foolishly definined the following terms:

Con: the one who contradicts the proposed resolution.
Definitely: positively
Win: Gain the LEAST voting points
Debate: a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly involving opposing viewpoints

So, following these definitions we can simplify the title of this debate for my opponent to:

Con will definitely lose this debate
Con will definitely win this discussion, as of a public question in an assembly involving opposing viewpoints
Con will definitely gain the least points in this discussion in a public assembly involving opposing viewpoints

So, for Con to win, he must gain the least points. However, this will mean that he will lose this debate. Therefore, my creative solution and Con's failed definitions lead to Voters for a clear VOTE PRO.

Con

Ok I defined it wrong. But the word win isn't even in resolution. I meant the word lose.
ishallannoyyo

Pro

My opponent meant the word "lose", yet he posted the word "win". It is too late to change any definitions now as I have already accepted them.

It is clear to VOTE PRO.

Con

My opponent failed to state why my loss is definite, only likely.

Pro

Your loss is definite because for you to win this resolution, you must gain the least number of points (this is a direct result of your definition mistake). Thus, it is definite that you will lose this debate. The two scenarios are:

1. You receive the most voting points, thus you lose as you failed to disprove the resolution

2. You receive the least voting points, thus you win by disproving the resolution, yet lose because you have the least number of points

A win for me is actually a win for my opponent, so it is clear if my opponent wishes to win to advocate for voters to vote for me. VOTE PRO.

Con

If I gain least votes I win by the definition that you agreed to.

Thus if you are making a super duper argument that gains you votes, YOU WILL DEFINITELY LOSE!

I tricked you. I intentionally made the definition.
ishallannoyyo

Pro

My opponent clearly wishes to win. Thus, voters are to vote for me, to let Con have the win.

VOTE PRO.
Debate Round No. 4

Con

The vote pro indicates something.
ishallannoyyo

Pro

All voters should vote for myself, and give the maximum number of points possible to me, this thus will make my opponent feel better as he has the satisfaction of winning.

A vote for me is a vote for the future, prosperity, and Dr.Pepper.

A vote for my opponent makes you a valid target for monkeys to throw dookie at you.

Your choice, the future, or dookie.
