Today, my debate partner repeatedly said "You mad, bro?" to the opposing team in our college debate class. That debate was worth a considerable portion of our grade. FML

He sounds like a walking meme.

I feel you OP, once I got a debate partner whose rebuttal was "Well I'm right because you're a dumbass". Thankfully we got graded individually.

I suppose he's been trolling to much

well was he mad bro?

To be honest, this FML post made me chuckle.

This needs an illustration.

He sounds like a walking meme.

"Haters gonna hate"

"Potatoes gonna potate"

"Gators gonna gate"

What are you trying to spell 54?

Debators gonna debate

Hopefully your teacher will understand and not let it effect your grade.

I could be wrong as I haven't yet googled it but I think is affect

In this setting it's "affect." Some advice I recall was that if you don't know whether to use "effect" or "affect," just use "impact." Works just as well :)

I think effect as a result and affect as currently idk that's just me and it works.

Both 'affect' and 'effect' can be used as a noun or a verb. So, Google if you must!

#36 As the saying goes, "Synonyms are for when you don't know how to spell a word".

39- no, affect is a verb, and effect is a noun.

"Effect" can also be used as a verb. It has a different meaning from that of "affect," however.

God damnit, where were you with this info when I had my english exam/essay?! I spent like 10 minutes (of 50 minutes) trying to remember which one to use... :'(

He was competing for extra credit. They offer that for being a douche, right?

If teachers secretly offer extra credit for being an asshole, so much more of how my classmates behaved while I was in high school makes sense.

Well, were your opponents at least mad?

No, but OP's partner will be, when he sees his grade.

Lmao I wish I was there to see that debate!

I wonder if he'll ask "You mad bro?" when you get your grades back.

sometimes in life that needs to be asked. even in a debate.

Soooo, I take it you're mad? Cause I would be.

I thought that died out a long time ago...

In internet time it was eons ago

These things never truly die...

They just become less used.
