Sh*t People Say To Policy Debaters

Recommended Posts

I HAVE SEEN THE FACE OF JIM.

Hi Jim.

Anyway, I've heard most of these all the time. I had two of my friends schedule an intervention for me because I was too busy "cutting" every weekend to do things with them. I've also heard the queer theory one way too often. THE POINT IS THAT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GAY. OR STRAIGHT. OR BI. OR WHATEVER.

 

Also, the impromptu debate one has always bothered me. Someone asked me to debate about why pants are bad in the hallway for a project "and link it to like nuclear war, right? Because that's what everything in debate ends in?"

I didn't know my face was such a mystery. There's a meme that features me and one of my former partners that somebody on my team submitted long before I ever became an admin on fypd.

 

one I forgot was: "here's a book, can you speed read it for us?"

I can't believe I forgot this. I always replied that I preferred the term "cunning linguist"

Say that you want to be an elementary school teacher, specifically kindergarten or first grade. Throws 'em off every time.

When he was in high school, my uncle (now in his 40s) was on the yearbook staff, and he managed to sneak that one into the Debate page on the yearbook.

 

Turns out the problem is more widespread than I initially thought.
