VersionHey everybody, This is a short file. Last year a new study about the effects of nuclear war on the Earth's climate was released that debaters may use to support "spark" type arguments about nuclear war being good. This file contains answers to that. The cards in this file are very recent. The file is organized into a 2ac frontline and has some extensions. I've even highlighted the frontline cards for you. It should be used to supplement spark answers you already have in your backfiles. I wouldn't go into a round with this file alone, but the newer cards offered in this file may take "spark" teams off-guard and give you the upperhand. It always helps to have cards reflective of the newest science in spark debates; this file can give you that and at an extremely affordable price. My name's Jacob Justice. I'm a 3rd year debater for Wayne State University, where I've broke and won speaker awards at multiple regional tournaments. I debated 2 years in high school for Dexter High School in Michigan. I'm currently a coach for West Bloomfield High School and last year I coached Brother Rice High School at the TOC. Happy debating, Jake
ahoy sailors and nonsailors alike, with the wa state tournament coming up, and basically everyone competing breaking a new aff, prep as of late has been intimidating. I know i'm going to walk into the round and have no case arguments and probably no idea what they're talking about; what do i do? in the 3nr post about breaking new affs, the author mentioned how topic word PICs were a common response, what do those look like? or on the inverse, when they lack the topic words, "euphemism PICs" (the 3nr article is the only place i've found on the internet that uses that terminology) likewise, I hear that "abusive" counterplans are more acceptable in face of a new aff, how would i prepare something like that? (or are those the same) will my politics disads stay alive with generic links? naturally I could always go for t or the k, but i don't feel terribly comfortable on any k and what if the aff just is t? need i learn an interp like doe so as to always have a violation, or will argumnets like ikonen/kumar suffice? finally, i hear against new affs (I'm not immune to the trend), people will run things like backfile checks. Coming from a very small school, (the program atm is myself and a novice), i'm not sure what kinds of arguments i ought be prepared for as a backfile check, or if its possible to be prepared at all. things even tangential to this topic'd be appreciated fair sailing!
