  1. lol. me wants to see nomnomnaan AT gmail DOT com
  2. DC Channel four news called him Khaddafy. maybe its a pun i dont get? or its just disappointing
  3. So essentially by running a counterfactual you take yourself "back in time" to when the event presented actually happened, and rather than having the current chain of events happen, pursue a different timeline in which we did something different altering our discourse now? How would this work on the aff while still being topical (idk if its possible)? Would i be along the lines of The USfg should have joined the soviets to explore and develop space beyond the earth's mesosphere? thanks for the help
  4. i heard someone talking about a running counterfactual and i was wondering it worked? its bascially like: The USfg should have done _____ right? idk i was just curious. clarification would be highly appreciated
  5. Id love this shab_chinnakonda@yahoo.com
  6. Ive heard about some people doing this and i was wondering if its legitimate or not? And if anyoen debates this a brief explanation on what happens
  7. im doing a communications aff so militarization links dont work anything else?
  8. space exploration leads to nuclear prolif? anyone have any? it would be awesome if i could get the sites
  9. Could i get that file as well? email is workingclassgangsterATyahooDOTcom
  10. im pretty new to debate and i havent really debated CPs much. So this may seem like a stupid question for some people but what exactly would you define as functionally competitive? ive talked about it with some people and i dont think Agent CPs are functually competitive becuase in the end the same plan is being enacted the agent is passing the same exact plan without any changes. Other people have argued with me about this but i dont think it is. maybe my understanding of CP competition is wrong idk. Also, why does it matter if its not competitive? of course the permutation would solve but the aff shouldnt be able to advocate the perm in the end because its not an advocacy right? thanks in advance.
  11. When you argue points of debate or accepting/refusing points made then isn't that just framework? Im fairly new at debating kritikally so you may want to get other advise about this, but you could argue that the ballot is a point of resistance to American sovereignty. So just because the clash makes it so that people do not agree on the idea that exceptionalism is horrible wont cancel out solvency. Also, there is a spanos card that says that the neg authors are bias due to their exceptionalist mindset. im not sure where it is but i have it somewhere.
  12. @ysinghal lol.... it was my idea i told shaf that EDIT: ok i guess shaf told me about it
  13. smart man. i actually am in the process of cutting one. im trying to finish reading up on all the lit first though.like the US going into space causes an exceptionalism mindset. i too believe in it and i thought it was a great idea. my plan is DnGish. Barbarian philosophy, removing yourself from the panopticon of America in favor of nomadic hiding. its from Spanos's book Spector of Vietnam. There is a lot of amazing evidence you can cut from it. Also, you can look into Foucault. I know Spanos is foucauldian so they work well with each other. Framework would be a big issue. what other holes are you thinking of?
  14. I think that its a good idea but i always thought the idea of space debris was that space debris is on the brink now. too much space debris risks shuttle damage. and it stops going to space altogether because there is virtually a layer of debris surrounding the earth. so we wouldnt be able to go out in space in the first place so astronauts wouldnt be there to be harmed. that may be on the same lines as your advantage but it seems like a good idea
