It is the highest number and people disagree. I have a PhD so I know what I'm talking about. The highest integer is 90.

Con

I accept the challenge; best of luck.

The highest number is 254 and the highest integer is 90. Prove me wrong or you lose.

Con

Well, we'll let the voters decide who wins. Besides, I believe your concept is flawed. Have you never counted to 255?

255 is not a number and does not exist. You cab not count to 255 because the highest number is 254.

Con

First of all, you should watch your grammar. Second of all, while waiting, I counted to 255.

Please provide proof. It is impossible to count to 255 because it is not a number.

Well good job, you typed out 254 numbers. 255 does not compute as a number.

I thank you for the challenge. May the best man win!

>Reported vote: Lsumichiganfan// Mod action: NOT Removed<

4 points to Con (Arguments, Conduct). Reasons for voting decision: Con disproved pros claim of counting to 255 which is a real number so he gets arguments and conduct sources are tied because nobody used any.

Your vote is stupid because just counting to 255 doesn't make it a number, that's like saying "look I just counted to ighh19&$".

The con just typing 255 doesn't make it a number. I am correct 100% of the time because I have a PhD.

I don't think Con did a good enough job. All he had to do was post a source suggesting it DOES exist.

Reasons for voting decision: Con successfully proved that 255 is a higher number than 254 by counting to it. Pro made no argument for their side, and simply kept restating that 255 wasn't a number, while providing no evidence.

Reasons for voting decision: Con proved that 254 isn't the highest number by counting to 255. Pro just made Ipse Dixit fallacies and tried to shift the burden of proof, despite him being the one making the positive claim. Apart from these fallacies, Pro made no argument whatsoever that 254 is the highest number.
