Dear Ethos users, there is a slight correction I need to make. Joseph Mollath of California helped with the Coca-Cola case mandates and I completely forgot to give him credit. This deserves a fun story about it all… [insert those weird swishing sounds on audio-books when someone tells a story]

Back at PHC debate camp this past summer we were practicing CX. I (Isaiah) read a case and then piles of people took turns CXing and we’d practice doing it over and switch places until we had sufficiently beat each other up. Well, I decided to use the Coca-Cola case first, so I read it and then let this guy Joseph Mollath be the first to CX. It sounded something like this:

“So you’re going to replenish the water tables?” (Joseph)

“Yes” (Isaiah)

“How will you be filtering that water?”

“…through strainers? No seriously, I don’t think rainwater comes filtered”

“And where do you plan to get the millions of gallons of water?”

“hmmm…snow from the Himalayas? I don’t know. They’ll just have to figure it out.”

“Are you aware that you have to use a coal filter and even then it takes 20-80 years to replenish water tables?”

“Haha, no, I’m not. And you’re making this up.”

“Haha, no, I’m not — I’m the reigning California science champion in water table replenishment. 2 years running.”

“::meep:: Okay, you win…ALL IS LOST!”

So, you see, considering Joseph’s expertise, I asked him to help me fix the mandates for the actual putting of in Ethos [an improper grammatical structured sentence that sounds like Yoda is called an anastrophe, just fyi]. He did, its there, I forgot to give him credit šŸ™

Please forgive me Joseph.
