You are by far way cooler than I. Not only are you in a rocking band but you dont challenge people to stupid debates. Making you truly cooler than I.

Also the Name couldnt hurt your coolness.

On the contrary. You are way cooler than me, because you THINK that I am so cool.

To dispute your specific arguments:

Our band is not that rocking. We've played less than 10 gigs and after our last one we were cancelled because the owner feared we would hurt business.

This is not a stupid debate. It's actually quite compelling. If I were as cool as you, I would have thought of it first.

You are REALLY GOOD at debating. And you have pretty much dominated people on this site. You are also da bomb at Risk, which I've yet to conjure the brain power to accel at (<- and that was a poorly constructed sentence, you wouldn't have made that mistake because you are too cool to do so).

Others must think you are cooler than me too. You have a lot more friends than I do and as we work together, you make a lot more sales than I do. That's because customers see your coolness.

The only uncool thing about you is that you haven't realized your coolness. That in itself is cool though, because modesty is very cool.

Here is a quote from a book I just read, "When you put David's name in into a Cool-o-meter, the readings are off the charts." That is from a book I wrote, called "David is Cool". It is only one page and one sentence long, but it's still a cool book because it's about you.

As cool as you are, I think I've got you beat on this one.

1. The fact that you have a band beats the fact that I do not.
My musical talent extends to the beginner level of Guitar Hero

2. Me being good at debating would make me a nerd. (I have dominated no one on this site) My skill at risk also makes me a nerd. The fact of the matter is that, everything I put on this site, I run through Microsoft word first.

3. You are also rated higher than I on hot or not. As of 12/17 at 4pm you're an 8.3 where as I am but a 5.3 making you truly cooler than I.

4. If you look at face book, you actually have way more friends than I do. I also got a Myspace account, and I was not even cool enough for Tom to accept me as a friend, and he is friends with everyone.

5. When the F did you write a book? That is so cool. Not only are you a musician but an author too. Man you are truly cooler than I originally thought.

1. Trust me. There are many people who would disagree that being in an aweful band is better than being in no band. It's actually quite embarrassing and degrading. And the reason you only play to the beginner level on Guitar Hero is because you are too cool, and have better things to do with your time than us uncool nerds with nothing better to do.

2. You know what, I think Microsoft Word is cool! Besides, by saying that this website is for nerds then I must be a nerd for using it too, which contradicts your original argument.

3. The Hot or Not defense was a clever one, however, I KNOW I've seen better pictures of you than the one you chose to post. Seems to me that you purposely chose that picture to swing the votes my way, which is a very cunning and cool idea. Besides, even if you had proven that I was 'hotter' than you, that still supports MY side of the argument; after all, isn't 'hot' the opposite of 'cool'???

4. Unfortunately I have not communicated with most of the people on my Facebook account for years. I am not cool enough for them to keep in touch with. There are even several people on my 'friends' list that I don't even know. How uncool is that? Most of the people I've talked to say they are annoyed that Tom automatically adds himself as your friend on MySpace, and I agree. It is so cool that you don't have to put up with his crap!

5. Yes I will admit that it is pretty cool that I wrote a book. However, considering that the only reason the book was cool was because it was about you leads me to believe that my coolness in this case was totally dependent on YOUR coolness. My coolness would not have existed without yours. Your coolness ENCAPSULATES mine, making mine ever more inferior to yours.

**Here is my grand finale. Much of this debate has been based on speculation and opinions. So I made a goal to do some research and find some facts. I just so happened to find a website that demonstrates the extent of your coolness. Some of the coolest, well-known people in America pay homage to you on this site. Case closed. This piece of information alone proves that you are without a doubt, extremely cooler than I.

I love these type of debates. What a great exercise of skill.

I think Pro has made the better case. Con is much cooler than Pro. Although, I'm kind of stuck in a paradox here. Because Pro won the debate I now think he's cooler.

O well. I'm voting Pro anyway.

Note to voters:

Ashbash IS Con's sister. She is standing up for her brother. My sister would not do this for me. He must be cooler than I.

I am going to have to agree that pro is way cooler than con. Con seems like a total dud. and for that he should win
