I am a high school policy debater. Things I like: Policy debate, NBC shows, USA shows (None of these reality shows), Music, Math, Philsophy (Baudrillard, some Marx, some Foucault, dash of Zizek, Agamben here and there), etc. etc.

The real question is “Why do white people think Jesus looks like Ashton Kutcher?”

the best thing that ever happened to me in high school was about 6 years ago our teacher never showed up for class and neither did the sub so one of the guys in the class just got up and started discussing his various theories about the island in lost and started drawing different diagrams on the board and ranting about his fan theories and everybody just went with it and raised their hands for him like he was the teacher and that was the class.

  • Question: when did you start policy debate? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    November 22nd, 2010 @ ~6:37pm

    That was when I was sadly informed there was no debate form that debated “Which is better: buttons or zippers?” and was then converted to policy armed with an Aff and a bunch of files that meant literally nothing to me, but were very neatly organized.

THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN LAST WEEK AT MY LOCAL KMART. YES, THAT IS A SEALED VHS TAPE OF JIMMY NEUTRON THE MOVIE, IN 2014, AT KMART, SITTING NEXT TO DVDS AND BLU-RAYS, PRICED AT $8.99 
To give perspective, this film was released on VHS in 2002 and has been sitting unopened in a Kmart store for 12 years, longer than children now in middle school. 
Plain proof that no one does inventory or gives a shit at any Kmart anywhere. Someone could probably live in Kmart and have no one notice. 

In 2001, I did an experiment for school about the idea of living in a big-box store like this. I selected a busy 24hr Meijer, which is a midwest-only combination of Marts both K and Wal. I entered the store on a lovely friday afternoon, and didn’t leave the store until the following sunday evening. I read the entire magazine section, played all of the demos of the games in the electronics section, and beat minesweeper on my phone innumerable times. I ate at the pizza parlour they’d just installed, and slept on the display furniture. I wandered around the racks during the day, bored out of my skull. I considered buying frozen burritos and asking one of the employees if they had a breakroom where I could microwave them, but that felt like it wouldn’t truly answer the question if someone could live in a Meijer; I’d be using resources that weren’t public.
The only time I was ever asked if I needed any help was on sunday morning around 8am, and then it was only waking me up to ask me if I was drunk and had wandered in that night and fell asleep on their displays. I said, “no, I’m fine, I’m just trying this futon.” and was left alone.
The people that work there really don’t care.

u lived in a k-mart

This is the most magical thing I’ve ever had the privilege of reading

  • Question: do you have any tips for cross examination like making up questions bc I have SO much trouble coming up with questions in round - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    The best way to handle cross-x is to flow the speech, then be very cynical about everything. Almost every case is logically flawed in one way or another, so wait for them to make that one claim that sounds really untrue and look at the cards on that claim.

    Whenever I am stumped, I always start with the terminal impact level of the debate because chances are, one small action can’t solve all of war or all of global warming or all of anything. If they have smaller impacts or structural violence impacts, try and ask questions to pin them down to a root cause so that you can attack there.

    After that, look at the links and see what it is that their authors advocate would solve the problems. If the author doesn’t mention their plan and only their plan, then you can probably win the CP. If the author mentions the plan and other plans, ask about the status of those other plans that could solve the problem. Lastly, if the author mentions their plan and only their plan, look to the qualifications of the author because chances are a person mentions only one solution if they have a special interest in that solution being implemented.

    Lastly, lots of people don’t read uniqueness properly any more and I have noticed this more and more. People will assume that “Plan boosts heg. Heg is good” is enough, but if heg is low or the uniqueness overwhelms the link (especially on smaller plans), then chances are you have a lower and lower threshold on what you need to prove to make their claims defensive at best.

    Hope this helped.
