    Chicago Teams

    Niles West CH and DG are on the national circuit, Niles Norths team with Deangelo, and the New Trier team with Kirby is also good. I have no idea what the last two teams codes are.

    Pirate Affirmative

    Hey, I've heard rumors of a sort of Deluzian critical affirmative about pirates. Does anyone know where I can get evidence to answer it? Any suggestions on where to start my research would be helpful.
  5. Oh cool. Same here, dude.

    Favorite K's

    No, they have some key differences. Nietzsche: Suffering inevitable and you should become übermensch. Taoism: Suffering is inevitable and you should take no action. And thanks for clearing the confusion about Giroux.

    Sure, I think that choosing from only optimism and pessimism it is best to be a pessimist. Optimists can occasionally be blinded by their optimism and be totally ignorant to certain things. If you ONLY focus on the positive you block out the negative and become more susceptible to getting screwed over in society. Optimism is a shaky road because it is tangled with new age crap that leads to "blinding optimism" in which people simply don't focus on bad things. Pessimists can more easily accept the negative parts of life and can then get over them. This repetition of focus on the negative will allow them to better evaluate them. They will then come to the realization that suffering and bad things are inevitable and that they can overcome them. Pessimism also makes better critical thinkers because they will always be mindful of the bad and potential ways their plans can fail so they have the knowledge to prepare for more. A new study came out which shows that pessimists have better health than optimists and prepare for more potential problems with their health because they know that things can always go wrong. Meaning pessimists live longer. **Note** All of these paragraphs are coming from the assumption that I may only choose pessimism or optimism without any middle ground or implications. sources: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/think-well/201101/why-optimism-can-be-bad-your-mental-health http://jezebel.com/5987868/oh-cruel-world-being-a-pessimist-might-make-you-live-longer
  12. The trolly part was the God K and Reptiles K. I can't thank you enough.
  13. Hey, I'm looking for a list of files that I can use against teams for fun. If you have these please PM me and we'll flesh out the details of the exchange. The list is..... Reptiles/ Aliens DA DnG K Disaster Porn Johnny '23 card God K Once again, if you have them we can make an exchange. I'm willing to trade fairly for them.
  14. The alt is to reject the affirmatives securitized mindset. With this alt you should read a "securitization bad epistemology, ontology, methodology, etc." card. If you could make an impact for securitization like "securitization leads to tyranny and genocide" that could also work. It's all up to you to choose the impact because it depends what kind of K debater you are.
  15. Hey, I was wondering what Ks y'all think are going to be run a lot. I've made a little list of what to expect but I'm wondering if I'm missing any. My list is.... -Anthro -Security -Neolib -Cap -Heideger
  16. I guess I agree, Nigeria can't facilitate the hunt and the U.N. doesn't do jack shit because they argue too much.
  17. Me and my partner were against a REALLY bad Lane Tech team at Illinois Novice State and we looked at each other and said "Troll?" During the 1ACs cross-x I asked a bunch of neolib-ish questions: "are you expanding corporate interests" "is your plan neolib" etc. The 1A looked me straight in the eye and said: "We already know you're doing neolib". I looked at my partner and said "oh shit, they've got us"! When the 1NC was flashed they were so confused and had no idea what was going on. They took 4 minutes to get their death good answers for the 2AC. None of them linked and we made fun of them during cross-x of the 2AC. The block was Taoism for 8 minutes and impact defense for 5 minutes. I lead them on SOOOO well, unfortunately it was a split.
  18. I know, it's for the lols.
  19. I was wondering if anyone could give me an entire space elevator aff file. I'm willing to trade fairly for it. PM me if you have it. *EDIT* I got the file so I don't need it anymore.
  20. Yeah, that's the one. That's what I need.
