vorxxox

Pro

We will play a game where we get to set 5 rules per each round that both players have to follow the round the rules are posted. I go first

1) Both sides must put "Please vote pro"
2) Both sides must summarize how this debate is going
3) Both sides must break a rule
4) Both sides must put rules that don't violate previous rules
5) Both sides must type something random that is apart from the summary

Summary:
Basically I have set con up for faliure, so I will automatically win this debate. I'm gonna violate the rule of saying something random.

Please vote pro
JustCallMeTarzan

Con

1) For the remainder of this debate, including this current round, JustCallMeTarzan shall assume the side and responsibilities of PRO, and Vorxxox shall assume the side and responsibilities of CON.
2) This swap may NOT be reversed.
3) Any breakage of JustCallMeTarzan's switch rule shall be considered grounds for forfeiture of this debate.
4) Vorxxox may not restrict JustCallMeTarzan's use of the English language/require him to post in a non-English language (including ASL).
5) Vorxxox shall make a statement at the end of each round properly acknowledging that he has been completely snookered.

Summary:

Vorxxox's "set up" was incomplete. He is now CON and must break a rule, granting JustCallMeTarzan the victory.

Random:

I have some vegetable oil on my desk that I use for lubricating my drill when I make holes in computer cases.

Rule Breakage:

Please vote CON, since he is now PRO.
Debate Round No. 1
vorxxox

Pro

I'm CON!!! Yay! I BREAK ALL THE RULES. And guess what. The resolution is AFFIRMED. Did con break a rule? Yes, so the vote goes PRO!

I have to admit though, that was clever as I don't know what... you trying to make me switch sides with you. The only problem with that is:

I no longer win if YOU break a rule, but I win if I break a rule.

And you locked it in so it can't be reversed.

Vote PRO. Thank you.
JustCallMeTarzan

Con

I thank my oppponent for conceding the debate, since JustCallMeTarzan, acting on the side and with the responsibilities of Pro, now recieves all votes going to the Pro side. And since JustCallMeTarzan carries the inconvienent, spurious label of "Con" in the voting field, all votes to him acting as Pro, wherein he clearly won the debate, shall go to him in the Con field.

1) Vorxxox shall cast his vote appropriately according to his admission that Pro shall recieve votes for the affirmation of the resolution and in accordance with JCMT's responsibilities as Pro.
2) Vorxxox shall not attempt to introduce counterarguments that negate his admission of defeat.
3) Vorxxox shall compose a limerick acknowledging his defeat.
4) Since the debate is effectively over with Vorxxox's concession, debaters shall commence conjecture on the subject of whether or not Skittles REALLY pwn M&M's.
5) Both debators shall compose one haiku per round concerning the virtues and benefits of a healthy lifestyle, focusing primarily on good eating habits.

Summary:

Vorxxox has conceded and claims all votes go to Pro. JCMT, in his responsibility as acting-Pro, graciously accepts his concession of the debate and asks that all voters summarily place their votes in the appropriate place.

Random:

Garbanzo beans make me giggle... I love saying Garbanzo.

Conjecture:

Skittles own any day - they are much, MUCH better than M&M's.

Haiku:

A healthy lifestyle:
Eating every day at home,
A veggie diet.

Broken Rule:

"Do not vote 'Pro'" - as per the concession of Vorxxox and the rules of debate concerning the responsibilities of JCMT-as-acting-Pro, all votes must go CON.

*********************************

Thank you for the concession - the responsibilities clause easily gives me the win, concerning the fact that you have in effect stated that winning is now one of Pro's responsibilities.

Snookered in the extreme.
Debate Round No. 2

Pro

vorxxox forfeited this round.
JustCallMeTarzan

Con

I am highly disappointed in my opponent's forfeiture, though it matters little, as he conceded the debate in the second round... This round is mere formality.

1) Vorxxox shall apologize in the comment field for his forfeiture.
2) Henceforth, all rules concerning llamas shall be null and void.
3) Henceforth, all rules concerning alpacas shall be null and void.
4) Henceforth, JCMT shall be referred to as "His Excellency."
5) Henceforth, Vorxxox shall be referred to as "He-who-has-been-snookered."

Summary:

A mere formality, His Excellency cleans up in the last round.

Random:

I had a post-coital craving for Skittles the other day.

Conjecture:

PC's are better than Macs.

Haiku:

Eat peas and carrots.
They are very good for you,
A healthy lifestyle.

Broken Rule:

Do NOT vote pro. As per the concession of He-Who-Has-Been-Snookered and the rules of debate concerning the responsibilities of His-Excellency-as-acting-Pro, all votes must go CON.

lol - a good try, but ignores the fact that with the switch, winning is a responsibility of Pro - which is now ME. Woot.

Nevermind on my previous comment, this debate is pointless. I can't wait to see who will accept it.
