  1. I dont really understand what monkeysphere is and I'm probably not going to spend the time to figure it out, but what I will say is that running any k that compares a race team to monkeys is probably a bad argument.
  2. Lol I like how the thread of who is the best in Missouri doesn't include any of our national circuit teams. Lincoln Prep was mad impressive when I got to see them at Dowling. I haven't had the pleasure of seeing Barstow's A yet but I'm sure they are great as well.
  3. Youre in the Missouri forum you know
  4. This lecture is (imho) pretty solid on getting the basics down. I was in a similar position 2 years ago (minus the whole being successful thing) and I'd like to think I have an alrightish understanding of the k and this was my intro.
  5. I have no idea what tournaments you are going to. Every tournament around here is primarily lays, a few old school stock-issue and persuasion judges, and maybe 2 or 3 college judges cool with critiques. Until judging quality gets to the point where critiques are a threat in at least 50% of rounds and judges aren't just going to vote on who spoke prettiest the quality of our districts and our area are going to stay stagnant. The arguments that get big in debate are the arguments that win. Until we get to a point where spending disads aren't winning we are not going to get past them.
  6. Title says it all. I'm looking for a card that says something along the lines of we need to be able to de-value certain people before conflict can erupt.
  7. Bet they did really well too lol that is for sure how it happened here
  8. Well I've only got the perspective of a small. traditional, mostly suburban district but honestly here in Missouri, unless it happened before camps put out files, just about nothing changes based on current events.
  9. Whenever anyone asks me this I immediately say "OK, Coke or Pepsi?" God help the chumps that say Pepsi.
  10. Pretty sure Officer Tom went to nationals in a cop suit.
  11. Slightly off-topic but what would be considered white theory?
  12. If i wanted to get really good at debating the cap k (specifically against policy affs) what would be a good "starter kit" in terms of literature to read?
  13. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/bbb.1330/abstract My coach can't get me access please help
