  1. Hey! My last year of high school debate was last year, but I'm really needing some help from the debate community. My friend's roommate has attempted to commit suicide and basically the university police told her that the problem wasn't that important and if she is going to harm herself to "use a clean blade." My friend and I found out that our university does not have explicit guidelines on what to do in this type of situation. Our campus police also aren't required to take a mental health training (expect for when they were in the police academy). There was a case last year during the education topic about guidance counselors only focusing on test scores rather than mental health. I could have sworn this was on open evidence, but I can't find it anywhere. We are going to propose a policy on mental health at our university. If you guys have any ideas/experiences with this feel free to send me a message! I'm trying to create the best outcome for this policy as possible. Even without the case I will be able to do adequate research, but I remembered that it had some pretty good evidence. If anyone has it/or cards that might help me pleeaaase let me know or if there is a place to purchase it! Thanks so much!

    Icebrakers Aff

    Hey guys, so I was looking through the Icebreakers files to set up a new Affirmative and was wondering what would be the best advantages to run, or if there are any solid advantages I should cut cards for? I know this case has been run by a handful of great teams on the national circuit, so I would love to know what advantages/specific plan text these teams end up running. Also, anybody who experience with the case: what are common DA's and K's that you'll see run against this case? Thanks so much, really any information about the affirmative would be a great help!

    Taking down a K Aff

    Hi all, As a 2N, it is so frustrating going against K affs. Obviously, there isn't one solid universal negative strategy vs. a K aff but I was hoping somebody could explain was is and what isn't a good idea. Last time (vs. an Identity K aff) we ran framework and topicality and on case and lost... I've been looking into the Faun K and that looks interesting but I don't know if I'm ready for such an abstract argument. Thanks(:

    Negative Affirmatives

    I'm not sure if you know what I'm talking about when I say negative affirmatives, as I've coined the term myself. I was thinking of writing a case that's nearly the opposite of a typical affirmative, such as one using my negative evidence to make the affirmative. An example would be banning seismic testing in the ocean, lengthening the drill ban, etc. Does anybody have any ideas for this? We did one last year strengthening the embargo.

    List off affiramtives

    Hey all, so since the debate season is finally getting started (hype), wanted to start by being able to get some of the affirmatives any of you have thought of or seen thus far. Thanks in advance!

    Exploring the ocean for God aff

    I'm thinking about cutting an aff that says we should explore the ocean for evidence of God's existence. Whether or not evidence were found, it would put to rest many of the existence of debates and arguably reduce/end religious violence. Any ideas on where to start?
