This is the final of the DDO Olympics Talent competition. While I welcome constructive votes from everyone, bear in mind that only official voters in the competition will have their votes counted in the end. Each of us will be demonstrating our unique talents. I will compose and perform original music in each round, whilst Josh will film his nunchuck abilities in the dark. Overall voters should vote for whom they determine to be the most talented. As with my other debate with Josh, the fir...

Impromptu Video Debate

= Structure = Round 1: is acceptance, and posting of topics. Whoever accepts will post three potential debate topics, and I will choose one of them for us to debate. The topics listed should be markedly different. For instance, three topics dealing with sports, or politics, or religion would be bad. In the event that Con lists three resolutions that are either the same, or are truisms geared towards the Con, I reserve the right to choose a different resolution entirely. Just be reasonabl...

This is for the DDO Olympics Talent Event - http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/38670/ Actual debate starts in round 2. We'll both be doing music.

Voters should choose whom they believe to be more talented on the basis of the talents we demonstrate in the debate. Remember that only the official voters' votes will be counted for the DDO Olympics though...

Composition Contest

I did one of these lately, but my opponent bailed out (http://www.debate.org/debates/Composition-Contest/2/). I'm a bit saddened by putting in a lot of effort only to have my opponent forfeit. Therefore, as a precondition for accepting this debate, my opponent agrees that any forfeit of a round in this debate means a concession of all 7 points. The same rule applies to me too, obviously. But of course, this is all about fun and stuff so good luck! The rules are reproduced here: Same as...
