I really liked the idea of having something like this every weekend, so let continue it. How was y'all's holiday weekend? Christmas, Hannukah, whatever you celebrate, how was it?

My Christmas was good. Got drivers ed, and all the debate related stuff I wanted, namely a new podium, good wireless mouse, and a backpack that actually fit my laptop. Saw my extended family, which was nice too. How about you guys?

Edit: Jesus, sorry for the triple post. I've designated this one as the one to reply to until I figure out how to delet the other two. Terribly sorry.

Suit and a tie, so that they expect the ptx DA and aren't ready for when you drop that nasty "Zizek" bomb on them in the 1NC If you want to "actually" look the part, jut buy  ($$$$$$$) some nice lefty merchandise! You know, those male tears mugs? Those stickers about colonialism that people put on their laptops? Be sure to also always have a nice Starbucks™ cup full of the highest caffeine coffee you can. Be sure to also have a nice Apple Macbook Pro™ to debate on and keep your evidence looking as shitty as possible so that you make sure that you squeeze out every last bit of "asshole" you can into that round.

You appear to have accidentally posted this three times. This was the first iteration of the thread, so I'm going with it.

 

My Christmas was spent eating copious amounts of pea salad and working on debate stuff for a clinic I'm giving in January - all in all, not a bad way to spend one's time.

 

Also, I love these little personal threads! They really add a sense of humanity to the forum.

That's the thing about K debaters. They know that they're cheating, but they know how to beat you in an argument about whether cheating is bad.

My highlights of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day consisted of visiting Calendar Man at his cell in Arkham City to get the achievement - I just need New Years day now.

Okay

holidays and breaks this year have been incredibly stressful. i usually (ie during school time) have a fairly rigid schedule, which is nice and it keeps me well nourished: i wake up at the same time, eat breakfast at that time, eat lunch at a certain time, run at a certain time, eat dinner, and then go to bed at the same time every night. that's gotten thrown out the window for the holidays -- the lack of a real necessity to wake up early means i stay up way too late and wake up way too late, which means i never eat enough ... gah its a mess. i've been sick and on edge the whole time because of it.

 

always feels like i'm wasting time. i really hate wasting time.

Mod here--I went in and deleted the other two threads for you. Had a pretty good holiday, pretty stressful trying to clean the house but it got done and spending time with my family was nice.

A more sinister example is a "renew the Holocaust" counterplan

Regarding your signature... a more sinister example of what now?

If you want your Baudrillard link, you can pry it from my cold, biologically dead hands.

From an article talking about the origins and arguments on condo, that quote is from the section talking about how conditionality allows debaters to run moral ambiguous counter plans without any repercussion.
