Over the course of an hour I, InferiorEgo, debated my ex-room mate P.J. to decide who indeed is the man on all levels. This is a debate for the record books.
IE: See, you are totally the man
PJ: not, like you know, well
PJ: no way, you are
IE: You have no points or example, you clearly are the man
PJ: point: you put out far more creative work on more fronts then I
PJ: film/video, comics, writing
IE: Point: You have a caring soul that just doesn't know when to quit
PJ: point: you have jobs in fields you are interesteded in: writing, comics
PJ: I don't know when to quit cause I am retarded
PJ: brutally retarded
IE: Counter-point: I work as a tutor in an English department, not a field I'm interested in
PJ: Still, you teach writing classes
PJ: beats restaurants
IE: Point: You are very personable
PJ: Counter-point: I can be a selfish douche bag
IE: Counter-point: you're lying
PJ: Example: Andy (tavis' replacement) still hates me for shooting JCS at our house
IE: that's not selfish, that's economic
PJ: yeah, but he really didn't want me too and I talked him into it
IE: you did what was best for the film, not selfish
PJ: You are the man- Point: you have an actual web presence and have more work created for people to see
IE: Counter-point: It's self promotion and whoring, doesn't make me the man, it just makes me aware of the way marketing is going
PJ: Point: You do more creative work and actually have shows
IE: Counterpoint: I have 10times as many failures as accomplishments
PJ: Irrelivent, so does eveyone
IE: I meant to say 25
PJ: 90% of everything is crap
PJ: Point: You have a cool set of friends
IE: Point: you have a wonderful work ethic
PJ: Counter-point: not lately
IE: point: overall
PJ: Counter point: meh
PJ: Point: You are a great debater!
IE: Counter point: you in fact are the man
PJ: Counter-point: you sir are in truth the man and are just trying to pawn it off on me so you don't fell the pressure of being "the man"
IE: Point: you live your life a quarter mile at a time
PJ: is that even relivent?
IE: Example is not needed and yes, it is relivent
PJ: how so?
IE: i just said so
PJ: saying so doesn't make it so
IE: counter-point: that point makes you the man
PJ: Point: You have higher standards then I
IE: Counter-point: That is hearsay
PJ: Point: its the truth
PJ: Example: You don't put up with anime and poor writing
IE: Final point: You are the man in so many different ways, that having a debate to point out all your "maness" would take no less than a year and no more than 18 months.
PJ: even if your favorite character is involved
IE: True: I do not suffer from Fanboyism
IE: But that point fails in comparison to your maturity in life combined with your caring nature
PJ: Final Counter-point: in the end of that long battle you would be crowned the man
IE: Counter-counter-point: I would only be crowned winner because of your sheer modesty of handing down the crown because you truly are the man.
PJ: counter-counter-counter point: I would never win the crown in the first place, simply because you sheer eloquence would lead you to win this arguement and therefore in actuality make you the man for out arguing me.
PJ: However, I must too resign since i have errands to run
IE:By resigning, you waive your right to call me the man and indubitably dub yourself the "man"
PJ: hardly: you resigned first, therefore proving you are, in fact, truely the man out of sheer modesty
IE: I only resigned because I couldn't possibly face someone like "the man" in an online debate.
PJ: Still more modesty- the mark of "the man"
IE: says the man who once saved kittens from a burning building
