THE WEEKLY RECAP

Regardless of how you feel inside, always try to look like a winner. Even if you are behind, a sustained look of control and confidence can give you a mental edge that results in victory.

Kurt Warner Is as Successful as He is Because He Loves Jesus More

"Look up...no really...look up quick. Something, I don't know what it was, just went soaring over your head. No really .. look .. I don't even know what it was. Looked like a UFS."

- FanNation member Moondizzle, to a commenter who failed to see the humour in his TD with Devin65

Throwdown Beatdowns!

This week has seen some huge beatdowns on the FanNation.

  Recipe for a TD Beatdown - courtesy of LGP

1) Start TD with an absurd topic

2) Make your opening argument one run-on sentence providing little evidence to back your absurd topic

3) Use second comment in the comments section to insult the first person to comment on the TD

4) Forfeit 2nd argument

5) Forfeit 3rd argument

6) Make your second comment on the TD 3 ?? days later, finally attempting to argue your point. Don't forget to complain about losing.

7) Combine above ingredients in a greased pan and bake in oven at 158 votes for the length of the TD.

SERVE HOT!!!
