It was round 2 of debating tonight.
I was really getting on Joel's nerves. Kept trying to make him practice some more... He was uninterested till we started talking payment... $1.50 of iTunes money per rebuttal point, plus bonuses for quality.
Unlike last time, our opposing team was really good. The
Joel was third speaker. He chose to focus on quantity for his rebuttal. 5 points (which is too many.) He did two well.
It was close. I think they'd have won if their third speaker hadn't insulted our team.
Debating is expensive. $20 for ice-cream afterwards.
And $8.50 for Joel.
