Anybody got some cards for the Fun K?

Recommended Posts

Working on a Kritik of Fun, looking for some more cards anywhere on the topic. I already have Schmidhuber and Graeber.

Is this Jack or Noah?

fun good K? Boredom is the root of all impacts

Kierkegaard '1843 [Kierkegaard. Cool Guy. From “Either/Or”. JCOOK]

People with experience maintain that proceeding from a basic principle is supposed to be very reasonable; I yield to them and proceed from the basic principle that all people are boring. Or is there anyone who would be boring enough to contradict me in this regard? This basic principle has to the highest degree the repelling force always required in the negative, which is actually the principle of motion. It is not merely repelling but infinitely repulsive, and whoever has the basic principle behind him must necessarily have infinite momentum for making discoveries. If, then, my thesis is true, a person needs only to ponder how corrupting boredom is for people, tempering his reflections more or less according to his desire to diminish or increase his impetus, and if he wants to press the speed of the motion to the highest point, almost with danger to the locomotive, he needs only to say to himself: Boredom is the root of all evil. It is very curious that boredom, which itself has such a calm and sedate nature, can have such a capacity to initiate motion. The effect that boredom brings about is absolutely magical, but this effect is one not of attraction but of repulsion. How corrupting boredom is, everyone recognizes also with regard to children. As long as children are having a good time, they are always good. This can be said in the strictest sense, for if they at times become unmanageable even while playing, it is really because they are beginning to be bored; boredom is already coming on, but in a different way. Therefore, when selecting a nursemaid, one always considers essentially not only that she is sober, trustworthy, and good-natured but also takes into esthetic consideration whether she knows how to entertain children. Even if she had all other excellent virtues, one would not hesitate to give her the sack if she lacked this qualification. Here, indeed, the principle is clearly acknowledged, but things go on so curiously in the world, habit and boredom have gained the upper hand to such a degree, that justice is done to esthetics only in the conduct of the nursemaid. It would be quite impossible to prevail if one wanted to demand a divorce because one's wife is boring, or demand that a king be dethroned because he is boring to behold, or that a clergyman be exiled because he is boring to listen to, or that a cabinet minister be dismissed or a journalist be executed because he is frightfully boring. Since boredom advances and boredom is the root of all evil, no wonder, then, that the world goes backwards, that evil spreads. This can be traced back to the very beginning of the world. The gods were bored; therefore they created human beings. Adam was bored because he was alone; therefore Eve was created. Since that moment, boredom entered the world and grew in quantity in exact proportion to the growth of population. Adam was bored alone; then Adam and Eve were bored en famille. After that, the population of the world increased and the nations were bored en masse. To amuse themselves, they hit upon the notion of building a tower so high that it would reach the sky. This notion is just as boring as the tower was high and is a terrible demonstration of how boredom had gained the upper hand. Then they were dispersed around the world, just as people now travel abroad, but they continued to be bored. And what consequences this boredom had: humankind stood tall and fell far, first through Eve, then from the Babylonian tower.

Not Funny K

Link:

 

Judge, when I heard the 1AC, I was not entertained. Nobody in the room smiled or laughed. We all just sat there and Flowed, we were all bored.


 

Impacts:

 

Fun precedes EVERYTHING else.  

Roach 87- Alexandra Roach, http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/a/alexandra_roach.html, 2.14.16a

The most important thing is to have fun, and not to take things too seriously.

 

Rule number one is to have fun.  

Ben and Jerry's ‘78 Iconic Vermont-based ice cream parlor chain, known for its creative, cleverly named flavors.

If it’s not fun why do it? Exactly. If you’re not having fun running your business or have no passion for what you do, then why do it? If you’re not, it’s going to show to your customers and everyone around you which makes for one very unhappy business. Ben & Jerry’s branding is definitely not serious, it’s fun, quirky & vibrant, and we love the funny cows featured in their marketing material!”

 

Their lack of fun is the root cause of all things evil.

Kierkegaard 1943 - Søren Kierkegaard, Danish Philosopher

“Since boredom advances, and boredom is the root of all evil, no wonder, then, that the world goes backward, that evil spreads. This can be traced back to the very beginning of the world. The gods were bored; therefore, they created human beings.”


 

ALTERNATIVE:

Read the 1AC with funny puns in the tag lines. Solves the case.

 

Puns are funny.

Wister 12- Will Wister, written 12.5.12, accessed 2.14.16, He is published in Forbes and The Atlantic. https://www.quora.com/Why-do-humans-find-puns-funny

“Humor can rely on things that are unexpected. There's a whole theory around it called incongruity theory that states that "humor is perceived at the moment of realization of incongruity between a concept involved in a certain situation and the real objects thought to be in some relation to the concept.” You're expecting a word to be rendered in one way, but because it's rendered in a different way that can be funny. So puns rely on many of the frameworks as most jokes. They set up an internal expectation, then when that expectation is violated we perceive it as humorous”

A2 SARCASM BAD:

Sarcasm is good for individuals

Harvard Gazette ‘15 (Go ahead, be sarcastic, Harvard Gazette, Christina Pazzanese, Harvard Staff Writer, http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2015/07/go-ahead-be-sarcastic/MS)

 

 

“Black Man Given Nation’s Worst Job.” That was how The Onion famously announced Barack Obamas election as president in 2008. Rather than a feel-good story trumpeting the historic occasion, the satirical publication sarcastically detailed the economic and political mess Obama would inherit (and be expected to mop up) from his first day in office. It was an unexpected and cheeky inversion of the days events played for laughs, that also highlighted the sobering reality the nation still faced even after the momentary celebration was over. Implicit, too, was the worry that the ascendancy of an African-American man to a previously unattainable position of global power might turn out to be a hollow victory. Despite being the lingua franca of the Internet, sarcasm isnt known as a sophisticated form of wit or a conversational style that wins friends. From the Greek and Latin for to tear flesh,sarcasm has been called hostility disguised as humor,the contempt-laden speech favored by smart alecks and mean girls thats best to avoid. But new research by Francesca Gino of Harvard Business School, Adam Galinsky, the Vikram S. Pandit Professor of Business at Columbia Business School, and Li Huang of INSEAD, the European business school, finds that sarcasm is far more nuanced, and actually offers some important, overlooked psychological and organizational benefits. To create or decode sarcasm, both the expressers and recipients of sarcasm need to overcome the contradiction (i.e., psychological distance) between the literal and actual meanings of the sarcastic expressions. This is a process that activates and is facilitated by abstraction, which in turn promotes creative thinking,said Gino via email. While practitioners of sarcasm have long believed intuitively that the “mental gymnastics” it requires indicate superior cognitive processesat work, the authors say, it hasnt been clear until now in which direction the causal link flowed, or that sarcasm boosted creativity in those receiving it, not just those dishing it out. Not only did we demonstrate the causal effect of expressing sarcasm on creativity and explore the relational cost sarcasm expressers and recipients have to endure, we also demonstrated, for the first time, the cognitive benefit sarcasm recipients could reap. Additionally, for the first time, our research proposed and has shown that to minimize the relational cost while still benefiting creatively, sarcasm is better used between people who have a trusting relationship,said Gino. In a series of studies, participants were randomly assigned to conditions labeled sarcastic, sincere, or neutral. As part of a simulated conversation task, they then expressed something sarcastic or sincere, received a sarcastic or sincere reply, or had a neutral exchange. Those in the sarcasm conditions subsequently performed better on creativity tasks than those in the sincere conditions or the control condition. This suggests that sarcasm has the potential to catalyze creativity in everyone,said Galinsky via email. That being said, although not the focus of our research, it is possible that naturally creative people are also more likely to use sarcasm, making it an outcome instead of [a] cause in this relationship.Of course, using sarcasm at work or in social situations is not without risk. Its a communication style that can easily lead to misunderstanding and confusion or, if its especially harsh, bruised egos or acrimony. But if those engaged in sarcasm have developed mutual trust, theres less chance for hurt feelings, the researchers found, and even if conflict arises, it wont derail the creative gains for either party. While most previous research seems to suggest that sarcasm is detrimental to effective communication because it is perceived to be more contemptuous than sincerity, we found that, unlike sarcasm between parties who distrust each other, sarcasm between individuals who share a trusting relationship does not generate more contempt than sincerity,said Galinsky. More work needs to be done to better understand how the tone and content of specific kinds of sarcasm — such as sarcastic criticism, sarcastic compliments, and sarcastic bantering affect communication in relationships as well as the cognitive processes of individuals, Huang adds. We hope our research will inspire organizations and communication coaches to take a renewed look at sarcasm,said Gino. Instead of discouraging workplace sarcasm completely as they have been doing, they could help educate individuals about the appropriate circumstances under which sarcasm can be used. By doing so, both the individuals involved in sarcastic conversations and the organizations they belong to would benefit creatively.
