I thought I had a great opener, but it was the time right after
the opener was where I had problems.
I would start my speech by reading a quote from this article
Then I'd say how we had someone credible who knew the UN and he wants our plan. Then give a "short" roadmap and say, "In this First Affirmative Rebuttal, I'm going to go over the last two Negative speeches and show why you should still vote Affirmative."
After all this was done, I'd used about 30 seconds (and I was going really fast), which I thought was too much. What is too much?
As I said before, I had way too much content on my flow that I wanted to get to, mostly because I refused to drop anything that I had a response to. I gotta control that.

I'm inclined to think like Andrew does.
