Okay, folks, Tier 1 is now ready. You are either part of the Alpha Division or Gold Division (anyone get the Spongebob reference?)

ALPHA

RESOLVED: There should be a minimum weight for runway models.
Grape (PRO) v. F-16_Fighting_Falcon (CON)

RESOLVED: Sex offenders should be sterilized/chemically castrated.
Mestari (PRO) v. PartamRuhem (CON)

GOLD

RESOLVED: Television has had more positive effects than negative.
Socialpinko (PRO) v. Raisor (CON)

RESOLVED: The sale of human organs should be legalized.
Lickdafoot (PRO) v. Andromeda_Z (CON)

You all know the rules. Pro, please post your R1 argument within one week from now. To repeat the rules about the debates:

1. Debates must have at least three (3) rounds, but no more than 4.
2. Unless both debaters agree on an alternative and both say they agree, the debates should have the standard 72 Hour period for posting arguments, and max amount of characters (8,000).
3. Make it so that voters MUST leave a voting comment. This is non-negotiable.
4. The voting period can be as long as both debaters agree on, but know that I will call the debate after 3 days or so.

You can ask any questions here or in the PM.
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

I vote my topic the creepiest...
Rules of Mafia

1. Mestari is never third party.
2. If Mestari claims an intricate and page long TP role, he's telling the truth.
3. Mestari always jointly wins with the town.
3b. If he doesn't he's mafia.
3c. If he was mafia you wouldn't suspect him in the first place.
4. If you lynch Mestari you will lose because he will be the third party Doctor or some other townie power role.
5. DP1 lynches are good.
6. The answer is always no.

Yeah, I agree. Mine's creepy, but it was still something I was considering for a research paper topic last semester. I like the creepy resolutions.

To clarify F16 and Grape's resolution it is saying "There should be a minimum BODY weight for runway models."

I actually found these resolutions online, as my creative juices were directed elsewhere. But, I chose that one because I thought it was...different.

Chemical castration isn't that crazy of a topic. Its not actually permanent. Its just a testosterone reducer that stops working once the offender is allowed to stop taking it.

Thank God. Runway models are presumably paid pretty well, so I'd have been fighting quite the uphill battle.

Wait... no... I'm insane. I read that as "minimum wage."

So after he clarified, did you think he meant a minimum body wage?
