Hopefully, fingers crossed, at 12 noon (DDO Time), we're going to have a debate again. Room is http://tinyurl.com... there, and if you go in, LordKnukle and Microsuck should be judges. They are in charge and are setting it all up, just for reference.

I am Judging.

Debate is in 15 minutes (so they have their prep time). Come on and let's watch! Also, it should be uploaded to youtube.

Is this a joke? Your going to take a sick day off of work to participate in a stupid debate, because S_H can't schedule it at a reasonable time, you know sometime AFTER people are out of work or school.

How is he young? He looks around twenty-five. I just have this conception of how everybody looks like in my mind, and TUF was way off. Lol.

I'm 23. According to his profile, TUF is like 19. Though I have thought he was cute for a while, and he's barely legal :p

That's something that's always irked me. Would it be illegal for a 17 year-old who turns 18 tomorrow to have sex with someone who turned 18 yesterday? Even though they could do it before?

TUF Won. The debate went unrecorded again cos my software buggered up and no-one else could record. Also, I did say beforehand my recording usually goes titts up.

These are pretty fun. There was a pretty big crowd this time. HitchSlap was definitely a challenge though, he is probably better with his words than me, and he didn't stutter as much.

I'll have to apologize for wasting the last part of the time trying to talk; I found out that not only there was no pop-up or even camera detected, Stephen. :(

Thanks man! :)
You did quite well too, just try to practice public speaking a little more and it will go away. In High school I was on the debate team and I'm studying political science (this isn't to rub it in, it is to say I've been practicing at it for a little bit) Though I think getting cut out's like that didn't do you justice by no faults of your own. Other than that I hardly noticed a studder by you bud!

About the challenge: I've debated against religion time and time again too, so when I found out I was pro I was like 'Aw SH!T' LOL so I had an idea of what was coming and I knew if I did the same thing as every other theologian I would get destroyed. Hence the Maslow's argument, the latin america argument, philosophy, and restorative arguments.

Overall LOTS of fun :) You were awesome too man! And the video adds an element of Rhetoric that I think is more enjoyable for everyone.

Best of luck in your future debates! Glad to see we share the same ideology on religion!

I would, but I'd be at school.

Also, I'm a-scared of showing my face.

Thanks for the advise :)

Yeah I got lucky with the position. I don't think I could have argued your standpoint as well lol.

Videos add a lot more sense of debate than written ones do I think. You get to exploit your true abiility in a manner of minutes, to say essentially the same thing that takes a half an hour to write.

I think we should get more people in on these, quite frankly there is not enough people who are willing to do it.

I'm willing, though.

Maybe.

Hopefully.

I have live debated twice now. No one has raped or ciritized me yet (not that I would care anyway.. Err about the criticism part I mean).

Just be yourself, and we'll enjoy watching you :)

You'll enjoy watching me, that's what scares me.

I'm in Junior High and have been sent to Nationals for Debate and Speech, only one person has said that they "enjoyed watching me" and he said it in A VERY CREEPY WAY. VERY CREEPY.

Honestly, I live debate, and make youtube videos. So, I don't see why live video debate is any different/scary. I just am irrationally paranoid sometimes.

But okay.

By live debate, I mean RL debate.
