If you ask for a card, your prep time starts when you get that card from your opponents.

If you flow in Crayon or in markers on the whiteboard in the class room, automatic 30s.

No K’s.

I will call for cards.*

Extend card names AND warrants, i.e. don't just say "extend CNN 18", explain what the card says.

Don't drop arguments.

No spreading or thinking your spreading when you're just mumbling.

If your tagline is a well-known song lyric or rhymes, plus points. Also plus points for iambic pentameter**

I won't flow every question/answer of cross examination, so if your opponent admits something you need to bring it up in a speech to have it impact the round.

If your impact is lives then you need to cry, otherwise I assume you don't actually care.

I am not a parent, but on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most experienced judge, I would rate myself a strong 2.

You can do anything while delivering your speech -- sitting while speaking, standing while speaking, speaking quickly, quickly speaking, sitting while standing, standing while sitting, sitting quickly, quickly sitting, and standing while standing.

* If the total number of characters in the card is a prime number and every character is a different shade of red and every sentence is a different font, I will buy it.

** In order for this to count, you need to slap the table rhythmically while speaking so I know. Also mark the rhythm on the card itself.

Note: Some of this is obv a joke, but some of it isn't.
