This debate is stupid. It is so stupid that I will forfeit the rounds, leaving the other debater talking to himself for the next 4 rounds. Also, he only has 5 minutes (and a 500 character limit) to prepare (and type up) for each round, not giving him enough time (and words to use) and giving him not a lot of experience. Finally, the voting period is only 3 days, giving everybody not enough time, and the consensus is not accurately reached.
Vote Pro.

Con

This debate is not stupid. In fact, it's downright genius. My opponent is a genius. He devised the debate so that it would appear tempting -- that is, it's not on a specific subject, and it bears semblance to an easy-to-win troll debate -- but in fact it's extremely difficult and requires critical thinking and strategy. Not to mention, with very short rounds, it keeps both debaters on their toes. I have to go to the bathroom, but I'm not going to at this point!

Very good idea, good sir.

Con

See, the genius continues! He forfeited, just as he said he would, to try to trick us all into thinking that he wasn't taking this debate seriously so that I would forfeit, stop caring, and he could come in at the last minute and write a beautiful argument about neurophysiology (is that even a thing?) or something like that and win over the voters with his wit and intellect.

NOTICE! He did not post "no arguments in the last round" or anything of the sort. That's the plan. I'm onto you, Pro!

He knows that I'm onto him, so he continues to forfeit -- even though he is online -- to keep me on my toes. Very well done.

I extend my arguments.

I have to admit that he kept me on my toes. I have 3 midterm exams, 2 papers, and a barking dog -- oops, make that two barking dogs (darn it!) -- to attend to, but I took time out of my day for this debate. Because you see, folks, it was not stupid. There is no such thing as a stupid debate, or a stupid question, or a stupid thought. That's personification. There are only stupid people starting stupid debates, asking stupid questions, or formulating stupid thoughts. And pro is still a genius.

lol yeah I just noticed con was trying to say I, 9spaceking was the smart one....but that didn't matter with the debate. I lost anyways. He could have been saying "vote pro" all rounds and STILL win. okay maybe not.

Was I the only one who noticed that Pro was arguing in the first round that this DEBATE is stupid, and not him? Most of Con's arguments up until the last round were about how smart Pro was, not the debate.... O.o MINDBLOWNNN
