Pro seems to have forfeited. I'll give him another chance to post his arguments, since we have enough rounds to give one up, but if he doesn't, then I'll proceed with my arguments.

I'll accept if you change the settings to 72 hours per round. Otherwise, I won't have time.

I agree. Hemingway wrote a good story with an excellent plot, but his writing is so streached out and it makes the story so LLOOOOONNNNGGGGG and boring. And that is the sole reason why Faulkner is superior
