Either Roy or TUF. I wish there weren't so many byes but a bunch of mofos decided to sign up for a tourney and then not do the one damn thing required of them.

If TUF doesn't have an interest in doing any more serious debate, outside of a perceived obligation to Roy for being so slow, then what interest would he have in participating in the quarter-finals?

The resolution pertains to anime. Don't worry, he ain't making it to no quarter-finals.

In other words - the next will round be Raisor, Roy, Phantom and myself.

Philosophy by itself has no practical purpose. The only reason to study it is to better understand computer hardware and software.

A lot of philosophers have different goals.

I will debate you on this topic if you are interested.

There doesn't have to be a point. Philosophy is merely for deep thinkers who like to theorize aout what is and what could be. People who like to look past the physical barriers of reality and delve into the wonders of where things come from, and why those elements are in place.

Your concept is that the more difficult a subject is to relate to, the better it is for students. This is the cough syrup principle: the worse it tastes, the better it is for you. There's also a big difference between mandatory courses and electives. A course on rebuilding motorcycle engines would not make the core curriculum in any general education, but it might be a good elective.

Due to long weekends full of 12 hour work days, I am going to have to decline from this tournament. I didn't know I was going to be working so much when I originally joined this. If my work days were a little less crowded into a few days, it would be easier to continue, but it's a constant nagging pressure to try and get rounds when you come home from hauling boxes all day, and you have to wake up bright and early at 6:00am. I appolagize to socialpinko if this disrupts the flow of the tournament, but I dearly wish everyone else who participates in this tournament good luck in your further rounds, and will try to be here to vote on the debates, just post them on my profile. Good luck mates!
