I have a riddle if anyone wants to attempt it.

If I stump you, I win. If you solve it correctly within the time limit, you win.

All points go to winner.


Good luck!

Con

Let's do this!
Debate Round No. 1
TheHostWithTheMost

Pro


I go get a peach after work everyday as part of my normal routine. My official job is working with lead pipes, although I rarely do so because I like just going out and doing my own thing. I feel I’m being repetitive when I introduce myself, and generally I feel like people usually view me as being two dimensional.



Who am I, and what was my name originally?


ishallannoyyo

Con

You are a plumber in an area where the pipes are still made out of lead. You rarely do so because lead pipes are so rare now. You enjoy going for peaches simply because you like peaches. I have no idea why you feel repititve or two dimential.

Your name? I cannot answer as I do not know YOUR name.

My answer is completely valid, Vote CON.

He was merely revealing the answer. Perhaps it was a mistake about not making enough rounds to fit the answer in.

I actually made the same mistake yesterday trying something like this. Nobody gave me grief about doing so, and I'm returning the favor.

You on the other hand are arguing for why this should be a tie in the comments, and even if I take your side on this and make this debate a tie for convincing arguments, you will STILL lose because I'll give conduct to TheHostWithTheMost.

My vote stands.

@MasterDebater, why is my argument not valid because it isn't in the debate space? Pro's answer isn't in the debate space, thus his answer is invalid to!

I didn't read the whole thing, so I didn't know to answer Jumpman. However, it is a valid answer and Mario/Jumpman do exist, not physically, but as an image.
That means that both the answer and the riddle are valid

It is valid, but my answer is completely valid as well. That is why it should technically be a tie, my answer is right, your answer is right, they are both equally right

The answer was in fact Mario Mario, previously known as Jumpman.

I will let the voters decide whether or not my riddle answer is valid, although I strongly believe it is.

No it isn't, Mario does not exist, thus that cannot be a valid riddle answer.

Reasons for voting decision: There should have been more than two round so the answer could be revealed within the debate. The riddle could have even been given in the first round so the answer would be given in the second. I am voting this a tie because it is unknowable if Con solved the riddle within the debate.
