Many of us know of imabench's legendary series called The Weekly Stupid. I just thought it would be funny if we were to make the TWI.

Ive had people ask me to make a 'weekly win' which is kinda what your proposing, but In my experience people are more amused at seeing people say stupid stuff then brilliant stuff....

By all means go for it though, there isnt another web series thingy on DDO that focuses on smart stuff people say..... Its usually stupidity or just general drama.

I think I might just go for it, now that it's been brought up. That is, unless GOP isn't too shy to do it or anything.
But if the chance remains
to see those better days,

Of course, but it is my duty to offer at the very least the illusion of cordiality, if not the genuine article.

The same could be said for The Weekly Stupid.

And of course, there are some things that are objectively intelligent remarks. A couple of examples would be literally everything I've ever said.

There are intelligent things said on this site?
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!

That's intelligent...
Don't let this site's demise affect you:

- Make an account on eDeb8
- Message Mikal to transfer your stats to eDeb8 (if you want them transferred)
- Contact any friends on here you'd like to stay in contact with
- Download any debates you'd like archived (go here: http://webpagetopdf.com...)
- Download as many mafia games as you can to preserve stats and history

Hmm, irony at it's finest.

Well most of the stuff that ends up on the WS is submitted to me by others, like roughly 60% of all material on any episode is stuff found by others.

It doesn't completely eliminate bias but it balances it put enough so that everyone's fine with it.

Also of you sh*t on both liberals and conservatives equally then that helps too.

Yeah, but the Weekly Stupid is easier. I mean, it's easier to point to someone saying 'god exists, therefore god exists' as being stupid and have people agree than to any proof of god and have people agree.
