The lovely SZ over at World of Crap points us to this:
Would you like to sit on the set of "The Factor" and let Bill O'Reilly have it?!
Wood eye?! Wood eye?! (Alright, it's an old and insensitive joke, and I'm ashamed I brought it up.)
Our "Bloviate with Bill" contest is underway and here's the deal:
During the month of February six lucky "Factor" viewers will be flown to New York City or Los Angeles (depending on which city we're broadcasting from) with hotel and meals paid for by us.
All you have to do is convince us by e-mail (and later by telephone) that you are a good debater and that you can hold your own with O'Reilly on a topic of your choosing.
I'll take him on on the heated and controversial topic of the causes of the decline and ultimate extinction of the Woolly Mammoth population Eurasia and North America, and I'll kick his flabby, although well loofahed, butt!! According to the rules, I "should submit a paragraph of no more than 100 words describing the topic as well as [my] personal view." Here it is.
Be it resolved: The decline and ultimate extinction of the Woolly Mammoth population Eurasia and North America was brought on by the aggressive expansion of by bands of human mesolithic hunters and the contraction of grazing range caused by a climactic shift in respose to predictable Milankovitch cycles. I'll argue pro.
Bill is toast.
