sh*tty theory

Recommended Posts

hey friends. i wanna have a good time. post your shittiest theory shells here!!

 

I'll start:

 

Interpretation: Going overtime is a voting issue

 

Violation- they didnt stop at (8/5) minutes

 

Fairness- they skew time because the argument they made in that extra time is one we can't reciprocate

Education- justifies infinite speeches which kills clash and deliberation

Here's one we had read against us:

 

(im summarizing the arg because we never got a speech doc for this)

Interp: Reading theory is a reverse voting issue

 

-Takes away from substantive discussion

-Encourages teams to read 8 minutes of theory

-Unpredictable because they can make a violation out of literally anything

I don't have the shell since I wasn't in the round but Lindale DW won on the Speed Theory K against Greenhill's E team while spreading. It was all analytics so I classify it as a theory shell.

Status of the aff?

 

Status of the disadvantage?

 

Status of the T violation? (this is apparently a popular one on cross x)

 

Status of the condo bad shell?

 

A is the interpretation: conditional condo bad shells are a voting issue

B is the violation they kicked out of condo bad

Thats a voter for education, they just perfconned themselves. Makes them bad advocates

Drop the team to encourage them not to read theory as a timesuck because it trivializes in round abuse

I once hit an argument that it was "unfair" for me to run a k against their aff bc I "could've just run a DA" instead......we literally had a flow judge. Lmao I love MO debate

lmao "you couldve just run a DA" ok sure just like your aff is unfair because you could have just got up and read timecube but instead you read a decent aff. how dare someone read an argument i dont want to have to answer

Any time someone uses the phrase "you could have..." in a theory debate, it's an open invitation to roast them.

 

"You could have read politics, federalism, spending, or states..." Yeah and you could've read the resolution before writing your plan-text.

This isn't exactly theory, but a team said me and my partner couldn't run Muslim communities in the surveillance topic because we weren't Muslim.
