Rob

Pro

My performance in this debate will be so poor that I will end up getting fewer votes than my opponent. For example, my opening argument will be far too short.
Toored

Con

So to beat you my performance must be as poor as yours. ....................................................................

Who will win?
Debate Round No. 1
Rob

Pro

There are many arguments I could put forth to support my claim that I will receive fewer votes in this debate--the paradoxical, self-defeating nature of my challenge; backlash I will receive for creating such a frivolous and pointless topic; anti-jester bias; etc. But I will not go into these points, because my argument is so ill-conceived and unfocused that my loss was assured from the very beginning. It is inconceivable for me to win this debate--or if it is conceivable, I have certainly not bothered to conceive of it. Checkmate, ipso facto, rice-a-roni, Q.E.D.
Toored

Con

I concede and by doing so I lose which means that Rob should get the most votes although there seems to be no logic in this debate or it could simply be that I am still wanting in the department of logic and quiet frankly I don't even know what I am saying anymore which is why this is turning into a bit of a run on sentence. All I have to say is I admire your creativity and wit Rob.

I received the most votes in this debate, so clearly I lost the debate. As such, I am forced to vote against myself.

I think you give your round two too much credit. I believe most voters simply read the topic and tried to tick you off. Reverse psychology and all that. It's an excellent strategy to bump up your win percentage.

I like Rob's debates. His frivelous and pointless topics intrigue as much if not more than the same old redundant things you see in other topics. I lol'd at rice-a-roni.

Notice that the very fact that I put so much effort into my Round 2 argument does so much to undermine my case (that I will do so badly it will make me lose the debate) that it makes my defeat practically inevitable. My relative coherency makes my victory an impossibility.

if you can prove that you will get the lowest number of votes, than, logically, you willbe voted for.

Rob, you make some interesting debates.
