Pro

There are no definitions in this debate.
There is no frameworking.

I am better than you because I am.
"I'm hot because I'm fly, you ain't because you not" (1) is my warrant.

(1) This is why I'm Hot by M.I.M.S.

Con

I thank my opponent for this exciting debate.

My opponent is both the instigator and Pro. This, by almost any account, gives him burden of proof. He has failed to prove that he is better than me. His sole proof is "I am better than you because I am." This begs the question, and is therefore invalid. He has failed to prove that he is better than me.

By Occam's Razor, my opponent is not better than me.

Resolution negated. Vote Con.

That's because he is spending the night at my house. We only have one computer.

And that is just about as relevant as the amount of time alloted to make an argument being a deciding factor in voting. I am balancing out your vote.

"Conduct goes to PRO for not voting for himself."
What? Since when is that relevant? And anyway, he hasn't been online so he hasn't had the opportunity to vote for himself.

He technically has proof, MIMS.

But you didn't talk about that so he gets arguments.

Conduct goes to PRO for not voting for himself.

Spelling is tie.

Sources is PRO because he is the only one with such.

Should say:

<"Why would you do that?">

I think the only ones besides conduct and sources are obvious. I'm not obligated to post a my reasons for voting, either, but meh...

With conduct, I gave it to you because, while the intent might be frivolous, I still got a sense of arrogance from pro (gee, wonder why?), and I find that to be annoying.

With sources...his source is M.I.M.S...some rapper I can't stand who released some crazily bad song. That's a negative to me.

Patsox, did you give me 7 votes? Why would you do that?

RFD

B/A: PRO

Conduct: The debate is clearly weighted, and Con was only given 5 minutes to formulate an argument. CON.
S&G: The resolution fails to end in a period. CON.
Arguments: CON. Obviously.
Sources: TIE. Pro's sole source is so bad that it doesn't count as a source.
