Everyone says wearing Ugg boots is a fad, but I don't think it is because I wear Ugg boots and I don't usually give into fads. Anyway, it's not like that many people are wearing them.

I would like to start with pointing out that your opening argument is incerdibly weak and stupid.

<>

If EVERYONE is saying it, then it is very highly probable that it is correct.

<< don't think it is because I wear Ugg boots and I don't usually give into fads>>

There is much wrong with that statement.
1) How can you prove that uou don't usually give into fads?
2) It doesn't matter about YOU; we are talking about the majority
3) You say 'don't USUALLY'; this could be one of the times you do
4) That is supposed to be the justification of your argument?? How can you not include any proof?

<>

Actually, there are very many people wearing them. There is not a single shoe store this season which is not selling Ugg boots.

How do you knoow that everyone isn't wrong?

1) My word is my proof.
2) I am included in the majority.
3) I think it'd not.
4) My word is my proof.

How do you know its not that the stores are selling but people not buying?

When the majority agrees on one thing, it is basically a rule that it is correct. When you say everyone, I assume you mean about 50 people. Therefore, it is highly improbable for them all to be incorrectly informed.

<<1) My word is my proof.
2) I am included in the majority.
3) I think it'd not.
4) My word is my proof.>>

Okay this is unbeliavble. You are defying all rules of a good debate. 'My word is my proof' counts for nothing. You shouldn't have even bothered writing this.

<>

The reason all stores are selling them is because of the increasingly high customer demand. They are selling them because many peole want to buy them.

I would usually say thank you to my opponent, but your debate was sort of a waste of time. You could actually have convinced some people if you had debated properly. Better luck with the next one.

Does 'Jziggy' have a mental disorder? Seriously

I know I didn't debate that well either, but it was two in the morning, and when your opponent isnt doing it properly you just cannot be bothered.
