How much time do you usually (on average) spend on each round for one of those typical 8000 character debates? By debates, I don't mean participating in debates with n00bs; I mean doing debates against someone who is average or higher in strength.

Also:

Smallest amount of time you spent on 8000 char. debates? Why?

That really depends on the debate. Some 8000 character arguments I've created in around 45 minutes. Others I had to research for about 2-3 hours, and then spend another 2-3 hours writing my argument. I've been known to start writing an argument at 9 PM and finish at 2 AM.

I probably spent the least amount of time on this debate: http://www.debate.org....

Usually about an hour.

Never more than two though.
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!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16
