Why were there no debates in the challenge period before I posted this one? I demand to know! If i don't find out within an hour I shall convert to Pacific/Islander religous beliefs. Yeah. Youkilis. He's on da wed sokks. Not the red sox. Da wed sokks. German folklore spelling.

Also i believe that my argument is grammatically correct. So stop it debate.org.

Someone needs to answer my question please. Weenis.

I already expanded my opening argument. Fine, then I shall babble.

My pancakes are spuds. My pancakes are spuds. Hidy-ho my pancakes are spuds. Anyway I think that my rightious beliefs are only valid in Spanglish.

hoopla:
–noun Informal.
1.bustling excitement or activity; commotion; hullabaloo; to-do.
2.sensational publicity; ballyhoo.
3.speech or writing intended to mislead or to obscure an issue.

Revenge:
–noun
4.the act of revenging; retaliation for injuries or wrongs; vengeance.
5.something done in vengeance.
6.the desire to revenge; vindictiveness.
7.an opportunity to retaliate or gain satisfaction.

Hoopla, you see, is an event or state of affairs. It is incapable of maintaining injuries, and thus incapable of avenging them. It has no desires. It has no relevance to the word "retaliate." Whether you are attempting to argue that the revenge of hoopla is going to occur or that it is desirable, you lose because it is impossible and even desires ought to be based on reality.

As for your question, it's because YOU failed to post another debate before this one. If you had, it would not be true that there was no debate in the challenge area before you posted this one.

Your points have proved to be very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, valid, Ranger Ralph. Or is it Rudolph Rash? Ah well. Anywho, my rebuttal will not only be well thought out, but detailed and thorough. Prepare to be amazed.

Oh dear, the amazing pain! I've been waiting for this pain! The delicious agony of someone demonstrating that I am wrong! How amazingly thorough, logical, original! "Insert here!" That's never been done before! That's not possible! I'm dying! No!!!

Reasons for voting decision: mynameisjonas never adequately responded to Ragnar_Rahl's post or rebuttal (which effectively pointed out the weakness of his resolution and case).
