Don't try and over-adapt to me based on what I did in high school. Read whatever (plans, no plans, performance, heg good, wipeout, theory) idc
Im relatively well read on things like - baudrillard, psychoanalysis, black nihilism, foucault, and vattimo - I will try not to let this effect how I make my decisions technically, but it does mean I will understand the words you use.

"Every idea one defends is presumed guilty, and every idea that cannot defend itself deserves to disappear."

Trolling without being an asshole is a skill. Being an asshole will doom your speaker points.
High speaks if you roast my friends. (if it is funny)
My understanding of debate is primarily grounded in natcir policy debate but I competed mainly in LD towards the end of my career
This was my debate career - Leo Kim -> Kansas KQ -> Mich K Lab -> RKS

1nc contradictions are usually okay, double turns are not.
The negative gets presumption, it flips aff if there is a cp or alternative. However, it flips back neg if the aff makes a permutation.
