Welcome to my third ever impromptu video debate challenge! Reposting because the previous challenger didn't post a round one.

I'll watch and vote on this debate later, but only because Larz's accent is so mesmerizing.

if you post your answer from 5.5 hours in to 11 hours, I will not make any time within those 12 hours as I simply cannot do it, according to my schedule tomorrow.

Unless you post it by 4 hours in, I can reply then.

Please do not post anything until nearly 12 or 11... hours... It will really be impossible for me to debate back. I won't be home.

(NB - although, I have an important meeting in 7 hours - so the only way I can meet my deadline is by posting in about 6 hours - sorry, there's nothing more I can do about that)

Kind of defeats the purpose of it being impromptu if I get 10 hours to prepare - this round I'll delay watching your video for another 9 hours, but after this round I'll post immediately. I did warn you about this when accepting the debate.

Youtube doesn't like to embed unless you get rid of all the arguments in the URL other than "v". You've got "feature". I'll see if I can embed it into this comment.

Also I don't know why it wasn't embedded.
