It's pretty close.  RM got ahead of me as of the time of this comment, but he has a loss coming in.  It's going to be close.

He only has 5 debates and 3 of them are from type1.  As you rank up, you get less points for victories and more points for losses.

I know more than you do about the thing you're 'teaching me'.

I don't know why, but I cared about getting ahead of MagicAintReal. Beyond that, I seems even more frivolous.

Clearly, far more important than offering intellectual discussions.

It's like saying you want to be #1 in Darwin Awards.

Since it's the school year, I don't want to do hard debates right now.  How about sometime this summer when I have more time?

I'm hoping blamonkey will be #1. His debates are high-quality, educational, enjoyable to read and as far as I can tell he's one of the best if not the best debaters on this site.

You should challenge blamonkey to a debate, I'd love reading that once I'm done with exams.

I'm thinking of that, or actually a decent quality debate. My main issue is the time constraints. I could debate the hind legs of an actuary mega donkey, but researching a topic I’m not already familiar with is quite time consuming. That’s why I save most of my debates on topics that I’m very familiar with.

Aside from a few Type1 debates (which I accepted just so RM didn’t snap them all up), I try and engage in debates where I’m forced to explain or convey details and intricacies of science or policy. Plus blahmonkey is far too formal for my liking. I find it can get in the way of my style

That's fair. I did debate in high school when we were forced to write like that or risk losing a round, so it's kind of hardwired into me whenever I debate. I am trying to be more concise though, so voters like you don't have to spend 4 hours on my arms alone.

its actually good from the point of view of a voter imo, its much easier to disentangle everything. I’m much more public style, creation/God/Philsophy style debate than formal.

What are arms in this context?

I'm willing to debate anyone once June roles around. Given that everyone seems to be throwing down gauntlets, just thought I'd toss my hat into the ring too (mixing metaphors ftw).

if you can mix your metaphors when everyone else is losing theirs - you’ll be a man, my son.
