Ed. If I, the one who's running the contest and the one who's in charge of the prize money, tells you that the mug you submitted won't score very well, why are you not taking my advice?

At the end of the day it's up to you if you wanna try harder or not. But I'm telling you now. The mug you submitted is not going to win if someone else enters and tries their best.

It'd be somewhat logical to act like this if the effort you put into your last mug didn't get you first place.

After all, why fix what isn't broken?

...Wow. Well forgive me for expecting better of you. I said you wouldn't lose, and you didn't, did you? So how was my guess inaccurate again? I also made that guess before Smashed had even submitted his mug. Which he did on like the last three days of submission. You submitted yours within the first week.

Yes, I was surprised by the results. But I don't see why you winning by half a point changes the fact that you won.

If two people are racing, and one person beats the other by like half a second, do you really think the other athlete tells himself, "I only lost by half a second!" or that the winner says, "I only won by half a second..."? Well I don't know any athletes who have responses like that.

When I run a race and have a photo finish, I don't really care by how much or how little I won. What matters is that I won. I might look at the fact that the other athlete almost beat me and tell myself, "I need to train harder, or else he might get me next time." But I don't see the logic in saying, "I'm not going to put in any effort because I don't deem him as a worthy opponent and he still almost beat me." Heck, if he got so close when you put in a lot of effort, isn't it simple logic to assume that if you put in LESS effort that he'll beat you next time?

Why am I still debating this with you?

Because you're complaining to me...after you won first place.

You didn't lose.

Your effort paid off.

I'm not saying that the same effort will pay off next time.

I'm saying that quitting is assuring that you'll lose.

This IS a contest after all. You can't get mad because you don't know exactly what to do in order to get first place. You just give it what you got, and see how far that takes you.

It'd be one thing if you didn't have any skill. But you have loads of skill.

But I digress. I've attempted to give you a friendly suggestion. It's your choice if you choose to listen or not.

If you choose not to, then just don't change your mug. You don't have to explain to me why you're not going to change it.

And we both know that I'd just keep trying to convince you otherwise. XD

...And let's be honest, we're both getting tired of this debate. Lol

And well, I don't want our friendship to be ruined over something so silly. Lol You are a good friend of mine after all.
