Thank you for coming to Debate.org.

First things first. What does "idiot" mean?
"a person affected with extreme mental retardation" (http://www.merriam-webster.com...)
I am not affected with any mental retardation at all. I make As and high Bs, I play tennis, and I debate for fun.

As the Instigator and PRO, my opponent bears the burden of proof to prove that I am an idiot. She has not done this yet.

Good luck.

my oponent says what does idiot mean and only an idiot wouldn't know what idiot means so my oponent is an idiot
mongeese

Con

My opponent's statement "only an idiot wouldn't know what idiot means" is inherently false. Although the general connonation of "idiot" is known by many, few know the exact denotation of the term, which necessitated my definition.

My opponent's poor syllogism only demonstrates her own misunderstanding of logic, which only makes her seem more like an idiot than me.

"he said im an idiot when i already said hes an idiot and we both cant be idiots"
True. However, I am not an idiot, so either you're an idiot, or neither of us are idiots.
"can i use the internet"
Not very well, given your grammar.
"and he looks like an idiot"
You don't even know what I look like.

"his pictures a hand and thats stuped"
Nintendo obviously didn't think it was stupid. My opponent's claim is unverifyable.
"and a stuped person is also a idiot"
Irrelevant, as I am not stupid. It is "stupid," not "stuped."

In conclusion, my opponent clearly can't spell or use logic, so if anybody in this debate is an idiot, it would have to be my opponent. As my opponent admitted that we can't both be idiots, I am not an idiot.

Jamielynn is the absolute worst debater I have ever seen in my experience debating.
She has no grasp on logic, makes no attempt to make sense, and her rebuttals are of the quality of a 2 year old. Thus I vote Neg in all areas, because Aff slanders, misspells, and bullshits her way through.

Correction: mongeese, mongoose, and Nags are the same person.
