JaxsonRaine

Pro

Please watch, listen, think, discuss.

We face a problem that transcends simple debate, and challenges us as a society, as humanity. The resolution has allowed for the possibilty, even the likelihood, of a paradox capable of ending all existence as we know it.

Ponder what lies there DDOian.

If voters choose Pro as the winner of this debate, then Pro will have won by contradicting his own Resolution. The very laws of logic and reason would begin to unravel, leading to chaos and entropy. Sarah Palin would be elected POTUS. Iran would send a basket of fruit to Israel. Canada would become a popular tourist location... But as scary as these possibilities, nay, probabilities may seem, what would follow is too terrible to put into words.[1]

Pristine White Lies Turn Dark.

If voters choose Con as the winner, then Pro will have won by asserting the Resolution, trough losing. It seems there is no alternative but risk the very fabric of the universe by selecting a winne. But hark! The solution is in the problem. Choosing a winner will destroy existence (to be, will not to be!), but if there is no winner, the horrible fury of the paradox can be averted. Pro will not lose, and win, nor will he win, and lose. It is clear, fellow DDOians, that we have no choice but to call a tie. No measure must be withheld to ensure an even vote. If necessary, Askbob should be brought in to discover and disclose the physical location of anyone who attempts to tamper with the balance of Vote.

Paradox with large typewritten documents.

However, in case the balance of Vote is upset, and the world comes to an end, I would leave us with this song, and may it echo through the emptiness of neverternity:

(Melancholy tune over soft Gregorian Chant)
For comes a day,
Where trolls will rule.
And ever falls the evening light of joy.
The time has come,
To bid adieu.
Our poor existence now shall end...

... just for the lulz.

Con

My Dear Friends,


It is perhaps by fate that we have reached this point of no return. To vote either pro or con on this debate will unsettle the debate gods, forcing them to unravel the time-space continuum should either PRO or CON win this debate. Breaking the tie is as dangerous as dividing by zero... and for the love of all that is good in this world, we have no choice but to hang in argumentative limbo: neither victory nor loss.[1]

Perhaps it was by fate that JaxsonRaine chose to, in this early morning, tempt fate. Perhaps it was destiny that I obliged. Perhaps we are all wholly insignificant in this world, much like Canada is when couples choose the location for their destination weddings. The fate of DDO and the world itself is in your hands, voter. You have the power to forever erase the delicate balance of fact and fallacy on the debate dot org.

Only you have the power to protect all that we hold sacred in this world, until we all die when when the Mayan calendar comes to an end. We must therefore preserve what few precious days we have left, and follow the sage advice of the great philosopher Jay Sean, featuring Niki Manaj.

We must party like it is 2012, until the end of 2012. [2] Prince tried to warn us of the oncoming tragedy of 1999, and fortunately the oncoming catastrophe was averted. Hence, we can party like its 1999 in 2012. [3] To preserve what is left of human existence, I beseech you, voter, let it remain a tie.


Peace and Love, YYW

Jaxson I too fear for the fate of the universe. It is in the voters hands now. They only have 12 days left to preserve all that is good in the world.

NOOOO! YOU FOOOOLSS!

Clearly this debate is not going to end in a tie. I'm going to go blow my life savings on new socks, as by the time this voting ends the universe will implode.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro loses as he is winning. But if pro loses he wins. It's a paradox. Leave tied... Edit: dust pelt added more points too his vote for no reason when only argunments can be justified for this debate. Counter 3/6 of his points. Edit: dust pelt never justified his new points and he added point to his vote to make pro win. Now whose the vote bomber? You.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro definately wins arguments. Con had better sources. Con also gets conduct because he said "My dear friends," while Pro just said "Please watch listen think discus."

Reasons for voting decision: This was like watching a mac truck hit YYW and back up on him. And if you think this was a vb your fvcking out of your mind! Edit: Pro has the BOP. In order for Pro to lose, he must win. Pro failed to meet his BOP, so Pro loses by winning and rambling on about absolutely nothing.
