Pro

are falcons good enough
MonetaryOffset

Con

I accept.

Resolved: Are falcons good enough?


Falcons - a type of hawk that can fly very fast and is sometimes trained to hunt [1].

Note that Pro provides no direction as to where this resolution is going: good enough to do what? Because he hasn't done that, it is only fair for us to default to a categorcial statement to the effect of gauging whether falcons are objectively good. As such, Pro is defending a positive statement and thus has the total BOP.

*Plays super cool rap-beat with music in the background

One debater, the one I didn't choose, didn't do absolutely anythin'
He got slayed by such laser, like a poor moose--he obviously tried everythin'
The winner is such obvious here, easily spotted as a donkey's rear
It's like the loser drank a gallon of beer, he's got a twisted unrealistic sneer

These people don't know how to respect or even wisely manage 'er time
It's always conduct point lost, the winner may taste victory but I taste lemon lime
This is happenin' so often it should be treated by the mod's as a grave crime
The commit-tors should be "rewarded" like in Brain Sludge--painted with slime

You may think your arguments are 100-percent unbeatable
Your "impressive hand of cards" an' "grand poker-face" unreadable
In reality you have such shame, even your friends think this incident unspeakable
Your tragic-horror story's so sad an' yet already set, it's un-completable

You forfeit-er, so darn blind, you wander around with a blank mind,
You can't do anything at all, an invisible mountain did you climb
If you had eyes they'd be completely raked--by you, my "great mate"
Your cookie dough of arguments is unbaked, judges gonna give you bad ranks

Please don't go and ask me for any advice, I can't be bo'ered with such li'l lice
I'd rather go eat a bowl of poisonous rice; you forfeiter can't be even be saved by Jesus Christ
You really don't fit the description "intelligent mind", compared to it you're really like a tiny mice
You may think your short rounds are "concise", oh sure they are, and you're just being nice

I shake my head at such incompetence, I really want to print this debate out and crumble it
Don't take any more debates from now on hence, you'll just be killed again, smashed like a poor kid
Your forfeitin' is such terrible I feel like vomitin', stompin' my feet on your rude red word carpet
So just don't do it--it belongs in the Town of Wrongitin, I'll just sell y

Good enough for what? You do not pose a clear argument to debate.

Reasons for voting decision: FF, with con as the only person to contribute even one complete sentence. (begin sarcasm) A compelling and very concise case was laid out by pro, that falcons are in fact not good enough to do anything, even being birds; central to his case was the absence of evidence... However con countered with a well sourced argument that falcons are in fact birds, thus by definition at least good enough to be birds. Of course this is forgiving the pro/con confusion of the instigator in the debate setup.
