Within this debate I will be arguing about a very serious topic: the impossibility of impossibility. Is impossibility possible? Or is it impossible? That is the question. So here, we come, to debate about this question that has been pondered over many many years, perhaps even centuries. We question about the existence of impossibility. Could everything be possible after all? I don't think so. I think there exists some impossibility, and thus, impossibility is proved possible.
pro will have to argue impossibility is impossible. Oh, what a paradox!
Impossible: unable to be done, performed, effected, etc.

If impossiblities are impossible, then isnt that an impossibility? That means that an impossibility exists. Thus, impossibilities do exist.

Did you not see what side you are on? You have to argue impossibility is impossible. (Which means, it doesn't exist)
Read more carefully next time! :P

Okay fine. oops... my mistake : P

But since, it is unlikely i can now win, one could make the statement it would be impossible for me to lose. Since that impossibility is impossible, than impossibility can be impossible.

So, thus impossibility is impossible.

Thank you!

Okay, so you say "it is impossible for you to lose" is an impossible statement.
However, I must tell you I am not very active. I could possibly forfeit the last round or make some other dumb mistake, and it would be possible for you to win. Thus, the "impossible statement" has been proven possible.
Onto you, pro.

I still violated and went against my own side. Thus, conduct points go to you. And btw, fha;lsfhjldhf;alshghlajg. There is grammar. I have no sources. No one will agree with me. All points now go to Con. So please, I urge everyone to vote Con. lLol. At least i dont have to worry about grammar lmao lol rofl peanut butter. Now, the statement it is impossible for me to lose is an impossibility.
