Futures Academy 19 (Previously Halstrom)

Binghamton 23 - Probably debating in college

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.

Be smart, passionate, and hold nothing back (except personal attacks maybe).

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

Techy truth > truthy tech > tech > truth

Unwarranted arguments even if dropped, are still not arguments.

I will vote for framework, I went for it a bunch my senior year.

Do what you are best at and you will be more likely to win.

Respect people's pronouns please.

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

*extra thoughts*

Absent a judge kick arg, I will stick the neg with their advocacy.

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.
