I participated in my first recorded online debate over the course of the last week. While there are definitely things I think I could improve on, I think I made the case for my side about as strong as I could, given the time constraints. I actually feel somewhat guilty for not being a vegetarian and for wearing leather on occasion. The opposition, in my opinion, is actually a technically better debater, but it's hard to defend a motion in a debate tournament funded and organized by a group (PETA) with vested interest in the other side winning.
A brief teaser (my second of three videos):
The entire playlist of 5 videos is available here. All together, the whole debate is 17 minutes long.
