  1. When they're not looking, spike their drinking water with narcotics.
  2. http://www.debate-central.org/learn/understand-cross-examination-debate Informative .PDF's to understanding CX debate.
  3. You're going to also want to have a net benefit - that is, some harm that links to the aff's plan but not the cp.
  4. Just watched it in class the other day. Great doc, highly recommend it for any audience.
  5. After USC I was waiting in the parking lot for my dad to pick me up. This old asian lady walks up to me and proceeds to ask me if I like parties. I promptly reply, "Yeah, sure I do". She then informs me that just a couple of blocks from the university, a week from that day, a party would be going on with random people from all over cali and that I was invited. I didn't want to be rude or anything so I told her that "I would see if I could attend". She then asks me for some personal info (this is the point where I realize I went too far with the conversation). I give her some fake info and leave as I see her informing other people about this fantastic event.

    An English professor wrote the words, “Woman without her man is nothing” on the blackboard and directed his students to punctuate it correctly. The men wrote: “Woman, without her man, is nothing.” The women wrote: “Woman: Without her, man is nothing.”
  7. Our coach mentioned this before. I remember him saying something about how in the future we as humans will just become batteries for machines and our lives will be simulated by a computer program VERY similar to the Matrix. He might have just been talking about it as an impact to cap or something like that. Sorry if I didn't help but just wanted to throw that out there.
  8. Precisely. Splitting the block allows you to spread out your arguments so that the 1AR has to answer all of them in his 5 min speech. The 2NR's responsibility is to choose the winning argument.
  9. Ok, that makes sense. I'll make sure to give advads their own flows next time. This'll definitely help in my organization. trees.
  10. A loud enough "CLEAR!" from the judge would do the trick. The fact that it's interrupting my speech wouldn't matter because the judge wouldn't be understanding the args I'm spreading anyway. A visible signal probably wouldn't be as effective because (as posted above), the speaker would be too focused on reading the cards than notice that the judge is simulating self-gratification.
  11. Advantages get their own flows? I've been taught to flow on-case on one piece of paper and all other off-case args on another sheet. So essentially, I'm flowing the entire 1AC on one paper including all the contentions/advantages. The 1NC is where I whip out other pieces of paper to flow additional off-case args. and I just flow any on-case on the same sheet I did for the 1AC. For example's sake let's say I'm the 2AC flowing my partner's 1AC - 1AC (3 contentions) = 1 sheet of paper. 1NC - T, CP, + On-case = 2 New sheets of paper (T&CP) + continue flowing on the 1AC sheet for on-case.
  12. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joOHbq8s92Q Anyone seen this or have any feedback? Looks interesting.
  13. Side note - I'll make sure to bring some pizza to my next debate.
  14. I'm going to send this in a PM too but I'll post it here so I make sure you get it - please specify your location in your info, because the first name of your account is the same as my real first name and I don't want any confusion.
