Full resolution: moar (more) of something does not always make you happier.

"Not ALWAYS" means that if my opponent leaves any of my arguments standing, they are disproven.

Definitions and clarification(s):

Moar (more) will be defined as:

1. in greater quantity, amount, measure, degree, or number:

2. additional or further: [1]

"Merrier" will be defined as "happier" [2]

"Something" will refer to material things in general, which means Con can name anything and as many things as they wish.

Structure:

R1: Con's argument (if they wish)
R2: Pro's rebuttal to Con's potential argument/new arguments
R3-4: Rebuttals
R5: Conclusions


Sources:

[1]- http://dictionary.reference.com...

[2]- the fact that it's generally defined that way

Understanding that under a small enough microscope everything has a limit, there is a certain practical approach to sayings that makes this one true. A good model for showing it is this. if X, Y, Z are all different amounts of something where X is not enough, Z is too much, and Y is ideal. It is easy to say that since Z is too much that means that more isn't always merrier but upon closer look we see that if Y is the best solution it is always more than X meaning that in every case the merriest number of something is always more than another value. You can apply that formula to any given object.

Yeah but if you eat too many brownies you get sick and that isn't a merry time.

:( what a disappointment.

My apologies. Broken computer. Left two other debates waiting for me as well. Anyway as I said before the X,Y,Z model applies to anything including brownies. Just imagine X is a plate that has brownies in it but not enough for you, and Y is a plate filled with the perfect amount of brownies. Y will always be more, in a good way (merrier), than X no matter what you replace it with.

So you are defining more as "in excess until it is no longer happy (merry/merrier)

So basically you win upon acceptance but he definitions you laid out.....

It will refer to all material things my opponent wishes to name because this is a silly debate about a saying.

You should probably specify that the "thing" in question has to be good individually (e.g. "more pain" is never good, and seems trivial to argue about)

"How much moar" would be defined as when something stops bringing any more merriment like when you get sick of Flappy Bird.

"not always"

So you just have to prove at least once that "more" is not always better.

Yet "more" is subjective, and would be very difficult to determine "how much more".

more food, water, friends, money, jobs, etc are all great things,

However, water is so much excess (more) can kill you. (hypertonic)

Your resolution is completely subjective, and this would be a debate filled with semantics.
