My Arguement Is That Throwing Yourself Off as Cliff (Including The Part When You Land) Is Generally Fun And Entertaining for Those Watching & Those JUmping Off The Cliff :)

I Will Let My Oponent State His Case :D

I would like to thank my opponent for making this debate.

I await my opponent's affirmation, definitions, and supporting information for the affirmation.

Definitions and Explanation: Here is where you should define the words: fun, cliff, entertaining, and set up a strict standard for the what fun, a cliff, and entertaining are and what they aren't. Make it clear where to draw the line between fun and not fun, entertaining and not entertaining, and a cliff, and not a cliff (should be a standard for feet). These lines should be clearly distinguishable. For example if I was to bring up another instance of someone jumping off a high natural landscape, I should be able to easily fit them into a category of either cliff/non-cliff, fun/no fun and entertaining/not entertaining based upon your established guideline. Furthermore on what weight do we put the entertainment/fun factor. Are the entertainment/fun of both parties equal? What if those watching experience negative fun/displeasure? Does this subtract from the overall fun that is being judged? How do you measure fun if this is so? This way I can determine whether the total amount of fun is positive(fun) or negative(not fun). The same thing goes for entertaining.

Also are you attempting to use this vague affirmation as a trap? Obviously if you were attempting to do so, you would change the meaning of jumping off a cliff to bungee jumping or something similar where the jumper does not die but instead peacefully lands. The entire concept of how the jumper lands is entirely unclear and is only meant to be assumed which is I why I ask my opponent if he/she wrongfully attempts to use this part of the affirmation as a trick/trap for me. If it is so, then I warn you that you will most likely lose conduct as your affirmation assumes a deadly ending and by changing it you are changing the debate. I do not find making vague debates and setting them as traps for those who legitimately debate amusing

Supporting Information - This is where you would include reasons why jumping off a cliff lives up to your definition of entertaining, and fun. The supporting information should utilize your definitions and explanations. You should clearly show why it is fun/entertaining. As the person who created the resolution and are Pro, you have the burden of proof and thus must prove, (using your definitions and explanations) along with examples factual/logical information why the jumping off a cliff is fun and entertaining. You should also give your opinion on other examples of jumping off of other landscapes which are very high. Are they fun/entertaining as well?

Thanks and good luck on the debate!

Let me state my definitions:

Throwing: To Propel Something Into A Pie
Yourself: Somebody Else
Off: Inside Of
A: Pineapple
Cliff: An olden day war veteran
Is: Banana
Fun: Edible

So let me revise the topic: Propelling somebody else inside of a pineapple war veteran banana pie is edible.

Let me clarify. This is not a trick. This is literal. Literally falling off a cliff into a sharp pile of rocks and dieing a very painful death by breaking every bone in your body. However please incorporate the new revised topic into this :D

i. My first point is simple. Dieing is generally not fun.

ii. My opponent is a mutated nazi. Therefore on behalf of him; i forefeit johngriswald. "But suddenly, out of no where, the hero arrives!! He gets out a laser gun and shoots everyone in the face.". <--- This was originally posted by johngriswald. Although it is a great analogy, it lacks flavour. Add works like : Poop & Diaper. Maybe even Poopy! This gives it a whole new outlook at life. Another thing you posted: "I Am a nazi and i like eating babies, vote for the opponent". While that is generally true, please have pity on yourself.

My source for all of this? www.clubpenguin.com

Now for my opponnent :)

My opponent is attempting to mock this debate site with his immature and frankly non-comical demeanor. I do not find this amusing.

Extend my position.

This is a simple debate. Please stop accusing me of doing things I'm not doing. In this site, most people debate serious matters, i see you bebate a lot, and are very good at what you do. What i am trying to do is to provide and entertaining debate in which i am hoping you will participate in. Obviously, i underestimated you, and thought you would actually be able to understand a bit of a joke.

Its entertaining if it makes sense (see Brian Eggleston's debates). Your debate is rude, foolish, and is worthy of the title of spam. Congratulations.

Extend my position.
