What debate are you most proud of this year?

Or what debate did you enjoy or learn the most from?

I haven't done very many good debates this year, but I doubt my pick would be much different anyways:

I don't have one yet that I am super proud of. I am guessing it will be one of my upcoming ones against bsh1 or whiteflame though.

The one I lost to thett3.

http://www.debate.org...

It's not my best work, but it's a topic I've never debated before, and it was a thrilling experience. I learned quite a bit from it as well. The fact that it's now in the HoF is just icing on the cake.

I haven't had they many good debates this year, as I haven't been debating much, but I'm pretty proud of my second global warming debate with Lannan (http://www.debate.org...). I still wasn't sure which position I should take on global warming at the time, and the fact I convinced Lannan to change his opinion on this issue was very consequential to me settling firmly on that side of the issue as well.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Usually the debates I feel the best about are the ones where I learn enough about a topic to form an opinion I didn't have before or settle something I felt conflicted about.

I meant to vote on that debate. It was a good debate, where you won, but where Lannan did about as good of a job as anyone could defending his position.

Any debate I have won
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

My debate with Romanii would have been my favorite, had he not had to leave the site at short notice.

Every single one ended in my opponent forfeiting or conceding (except the vi_spex debate) :(
