It has been in the running for a long time, but tonight me and bsh1 will be debating on the Jan-Feb LD topic, which is Resolved: In the United States, private ownership of handguns ought to be banned

I will be taking the negative, he will be taking the affirmative.

It will be at midnight EST on google hangout, drop your gmail here if you want invited to observe.

I assure everyone that I am well rested today, so I won't be falling asleep early like last time, lol.

I look forward to an interesting and informative debate with bsh tonight :)

Will a link be publicly posted?

Since bsh1 in an act of what can only be described as malevolent passive aggression blocked me (as we all witnessed the other night), I will regretfully not be joining.

So, probably not posted publicly.

Well, you didn't "reply & quote" to him, so I'm sorry.

Okay, awesome. :)

Is it open voting, or judge style?
You also may want to make sure bsh unblocks some members on hangouts so they can watch, I know he has a few people blocked.

Not sure if I will be able to watch it..be sure to record it, and good luck. :)

I'll ask if he can unblock people so that it is accessible to everyone, I will also be asking him to make his case and argumentation lay so its accessible to non LD debaters. So no really convoluted K's, spread, theory, etc.

Also, we never discussed voting, but if we don't establish anything formal, I'm sure there are a few reputable members there who would be willing to provide commentary after the debate :)

If I'm not mistaken he has two people blocked, including you.

How will it go down?

- First off YYW will show up to the event wearing an inflatable T-rex costume, which is Bsh's secret fear.
- YYW wont say anything, he'll just stare at his computer screen while wearing the costume
- Bsh will get unnerved, but then he'll collect himself and avoid looking at YYW's screen
- He will either drink a 40 oz Jack Daniels or smoke a LITTLE crack to do this
- Objectivity will show up late because of a bad internet connection
- Its bene storming in his home town recently and his internet has been iffy at best
- He really wants this debate to happen though so he's not going to try to reschedule
- He will also avoid taking 7 Ambiens like he did the last time they tried to have the debate
- Someone in the peanut gallery will have their mic not be muted
- Their mom will start yelling at them in the background for not doing chores
- The person will respond "DAMN MOM, BACK AT IT WITH THE YELLING FOR NO F*CKING REASON"
- A hilarious argument ensues where other people fight to mute and unmute the person who is having the fight
- This delays the start of the debate by half an hour before the person finally leaves, unaware everyone heard
- The debate starts
- Nothing interesting happens
- The debate ends
- Both sides try to spin it that they won when in reality everyone wants to go take a nap
