  1. Along with this, there's bound to be some really good cards to back that up with in the free camp files on here. Good luck.
  2. In lieu of this, if you must change it, I'd go with Subsidization keeps your inherency intact.
  3. Interesting thought, but I don't think that either of those experiments necessarily prove that people are not ethical or moral by nature. They rather prove that people are highly influenced by others and by their environment. In Milgram's experiment people weren't "shocking" the mock patients out of sheer sadism, but rather because someone of supposed authority told them to; in Zimbardo's experiment, it was their environment and assumed role playing that caused them to become so immersed in the role of the guard. It just shows that people are easily led to do what under normal circumstances they would not. I'm sure you are also familiar with experiments where there was a line up of six or seven supposed subjects only one of whom was not an actor. The group would be asked a question and given that the four or five before the actual subject answered (quite obviously) incorrectly, the next, against his or her own judgement would follow suit (for various reasons, of course). That is to say, that people don't not have morals, but rather people will easily betray their own morals, judgements, and senses as per the will of others. Pffffffffffft. You obviously haven't listened to much Pink Floyd.
  4. Well, for instance: Many (if not most) people debating "the" or any "project" are not necessarily on some glorious mission to accomplish some sort of goal exterior to the round. Granted, there is a personal attachment to the argument as there may be with other arguments as well, but to glorify the project as something above debate, above the round, is complete bullshit. [edit] to clarify, I mean to place the project above the round when it's being used as a tool of the round, is absurd.
  5. *bump* anyone have any version of this file? thanks.
  6. Tell me you're joking. Not like lost speaks but lost? That's some cold shit.
  7. how the hell OU dropped in the polls? </wtf>
  8. Makes me wonder whatever happened to the Consult Ashtar CP (aka, What Would Ashtar Do?). *sigh*
  9. Oh yeahhh. It's all coming back to me now.
  10. so cory, how long until there's a forum strictly for whoring of all kinds? just wondering.

    Kingfisher would like to send a few to UTNIF. Working on fundraisers, etc. currently.
  12. I see where dpron's going with this, but I don't think that a ban is a disincentive; it's a ban. I would think increased taxing on oil or making cars that don't run on dual fuel, etc. as a disincentive.
  13. Assuming you mean: First, I don't necessarily have any explicit views on "emotion in society." Frankly, everyone has emotions and displays them (or choose not to) to their own valition. The only way I would assume that you would assert emotions make the world worse is either due to petty middle school bullshit, or emotionally unstable people in the world. The problem with the arguement you try to make is that emotions cannot so easily be removed from people (or rather people from their emotions?) and emotions inherently have and will affect the world. Were it not for emotions there would possibly (forgive the cliches) still be slavery in the United States and at the same time there may not have been (again, sorry) the Holocaust. Either way, emotions affect society and the only choice we really have is to simply "live and let live," so to speak.

    Weatherman Neg?

    I've been toying with some ideas and I think Shane's idea is the best route to go (ie, fx t, china cp). I've written a China CP Shell and I'm coming up with some wicked nb's, I've just got to write a solid FX T shell (shouldn't be a problem) and come up with some more China good and pull some really good AT Perms and I should be set. Thanks for all the help everyone.

    Weatherman Neg?

    Thanks! I was definitely thinking the same thing on FX T, and I really like the China idea, especially with their recent endeavor with weather control. I think that it may also be plausible to run a Russia CP as the technology that the Chinese are using to control weather for the Olympics was actually developed by the Russians. let me know if you come up with anything else.

    Weatherman Neg?

    It's not that weathermen are changing the weather, they're just calling the aff the weatherman aff. The idea is that they seed clouds to provide clean rainfall and claim the advantages of basically any clean water aff.
  18. Edit: Franco/Benson apparently are not going.

    Weatherman Neg?

    Does anyone know where I can get some good neg on cloud-seeding, etc.?
