But wouldn't that necessitate finding a venue with a steel cage, arena seating, and the setting up of complicated mathematical tables for accomidating the oddsmaking and betting?

I'm anxiously awaiting the line on the death match between Billo and Gunny, myself. I mean, after Billo dispatched Karl The Shredder with his patetened speed metal claw and Gunny had little trouble with Dr. Jihad using his classic Jarhead drop, I would think fans would be lining up in droves.

Anybody got a digital camcorder? That would probably be the best route to go, as it's much easier to transfer a video to a computer and then to a CD than it is to transfer it to a VHS tape. I can take video with my digital camera, but that will only record for as long as my memory card will hold, which wouldn't be nearly long enough.

well, you could tape it all to computer form webcams too. I've seen this done with good results.


Unless you want close ups too.

I don't think webcams are really viable, as you'd have to have a computer set up to even operate it, not to mention, they don't have a very long range and aren't exactly the most portable things.

And aim those sexy body comments elsewhere!!! Haha, I'll either be hugely pregnant when we have this thing, or will have a newborn in tow....not exactly my idea of sexiness!! :rofl

1. An in depth killer seminar of the tools of this site.

2. Pez eating flying monkeys.

3. A trivia/IQ, or whatever, team contest. Both sides always claim to be the smartest and that is the reason they give for winning any given debate. "Oh you conservatives are obviously too stupid to know what I'm talking about, therefor I refuse to debate you any longer and summarily claim victory." "Oh you libs have a mental disorder and are too stupid to follow my logic. I win." Let's find out and dispence with this weak bullshit out.

I, of course, will be my own team and will walk away with the crown.

4. A raffle. Grand prize? Winner gets to poke a caged Billo with sticks. (galenrox.)

Don't get me started!

You are making me this look forward to attending this event more and more.

Hope I can.

For the record, I prefer Parliamentary to LD, but I'm awfully fond of Public Forum-- though the college circuit still hasn't picked it up.

Speaking of live debate, will there be a live Basement? A DP Fight Club?
