Hey! I have teamed up with @famousdebater, and we have decided to initiate a team debate. In this thread, potential contenders and their teammates can apply to debate us and suggest topics. We are open to any opponent regardless of experience. Hopefully this turns out well and we can do more. Thanks!
Topics I would like to debate: https://docs.google.com...

Open to suggestions on topics, or you can take a look at the ones we have posted. There are others we would like to do, but @famousdebater and I have to agree upon them first.

Tons. I can do British politics, maybe EU referendum. I can also debate Japanese policy, French Policy, South-African, pretty much anything. But, @famousdebater and still have to agree.

We'd be willing to take Pro (or Con, though I assume you would prefer to have Con) on a resolution arguing that Britain should leave the EU. We're open to pretty much anything, though.

I could take Con on this although it must be confirmed by TheProphett

DK and Bsh ... that would be difficult.

What's life without a bit of challenge to spice it up...?

The answer: easier and less stressful.

I would so make a really gay joke right now, but you're a minor.

In all seriousness, though, we could do a 3 vs. 3 debate. I am sure you could recruit someone else for your team.

Nothing I haven't heard before, junior high is junior high.

3 perspectives on one topic? I think two is just right, but I can ask famous if we are willing to add another to the mix....

Lol...You know, if Proph and famous can find another partner, we could do a 3-on-3 debate, which sounds more inappropriate than was intended.

I'm not equipped to handle that quantity.

I would so make a really gay joke right now, but you're a minor.

In all seriousness, though, we could do a 3 vs. 3 debate. I am sure you could recruit someone else for your team.

Nothing I haven't heard before, junior high is junior high.

Lol. I guess. Well, I would just point out that you could definitely handle that quantity.

3 perspectives on one topic? I think two is just right, but I can ask famous if we are willing to add another to the mix....

Okay,
Live Long and Prosper

I'm a Bish.
