  1. Policy always outweighs public forum. You may however lose a few to LD but the ones who choose PF will be so brain dead from losing brain cells that it won't even matter.
  2. If you want your folders in a different order than they are alphabetically you can also number them
  3. In my circuit it is the norm and accepted to flash cards but not analytical arguments even if they are written in the speech doc. It takes about 2 seconds to delete them if you use them in a different font than your cards.
  4. The perverts guide to cinema is an excellent one by Zizek and last i checked it is on netflix. He is also in Synecdoche, New York but i do not know if that is on netflix.
  5. At SME this year we ran a kritik of alarmist rhetoric where the alt text literally states that the plan can still happen just without the alarmist rhetoric. It was hella abusive but the other team didnt call us out on it and the judge voted on it. I find PIKs especially useful if you have a more policy oriented judge but still want to run a kritik, the impact scenario on the kritik is iffy but you still want to have some reason to vote on the k, and I am personally a fan of them on discourse kiriks. Run them, hope you don't get caught, write good floating piks god blocks and have fun abusing people.
  6. We could bring back the repeal Carnivore and/or Echelon programs affirmatives back.
  7. Due to the fact that my regular partner will not be able to attend camp this year I am in need of a temprorary partner to attend 4 week UMKC camp. I am a sophmore who debated varsity all year with an overall win loss percentage of 65%. Some highlights of the year include: 5-0 at SME and 5-2 at state. I debate for Lawrence Free state and just need someone who knows what a perm is, can give a half decent rebuttal, and has a pulse. I'm a pretty chill person and easy to get along with so really anyone would work. If you are interested in partnering up or want to hear more details message me. comment below or email me at sophiaswanson149@gmail.com

  11. Otec, LOST, Oil and SMR's have basically all I have hit this year.
  12. Don't even care if doesn't even kind of fall under the resolution I'm running eco apartheid next year at SME if I break just so I can get the other team to ask for prep before the round so I can actually eat. Also can someone bother mskog to change my name on the bid tracker? I could email him but that takes so much effort....
  13. From my adventure judging 4 rounds of the Novice Positive Experience Tournament over here in EKNFL * I think i heard a total of 2 road maps the entire day * The speaker grabbing his crotch for a good 10 seconds while staring at the girl sitting next to me * Girl walking half way up from her seat for cx with her back to the judges * 5 pairs of sperrys * The neg team speaking for a total of 1 min the entire round * A 9 second 2NR *someone not reading the tags or cites with no internal signposting (had to ask for her speech after the round to know what the hell was even going on) *dropped laptop * t with no standards or violations * we're going to put off shore wind in all 50 states
  14. Paper for most people is much easier to read off of and i find that i can spread much faster off of paper than i can a laptop. Some would argue that you can find your files faster on a laptop but this is not always true. I debate only with paper evidence and i organize my box very carefully and can find my cards as fast or faster than my peers on laptops. Plus your tubs wont suddenly black out leaving you helpless. Sure you have to carry around 50 pounds + of paper but its worth it in the long run. Sure you cant fit near infinite amounts of evidence in a tub but you don't really need that. Lastly you don't have to carry around an extra laptop or hand over your baby to the other team when they need to see your evidence. Overall Tubs > Paperless. Long live paper debate.
