Engaging in internal dialogue on a trivial subject. (Tacitly defined as such by the pleb classes. Contrast this with the Cambridge definition of the noun 'debate'- "serious discussion of a subject in which many people take part"

To remove the wings from a bat causing it to transform into an actual mouse. Once debat'ed a bat turned mouse (aka bat-born mouse) cannot be rebat'ed, as sufficient technology does not yet exist to perform this complex biologic process. However, a native mouse (mouse-born mouse) may be bat'ed in the right laboratory setting. Under stringent lab conditions found in only several labs in the world (most notably Lucerne, Switzerland) a mouse can be fitted with genetically engineered wings grown from tissue culture using advanced cloning technology. Fitting a mouse with these wings (bat'ing) causes the mouse to become a bat.

A notable distinction in the process of debat'ing occurs if a bat that is debat'ed was in fact a vampire. Under these conditions, a vampire bat that is debat'ed becomes a human being. A human being fitted with wings, on the other hand, does not become a vampire, rather, said individual would become Icarus.
Dude, where did you get that cool-looking mouse?

I caught a bat that was flying around our attic and debat'ed it.

Today, a form of intellectual self-masturbation in which one attempts to scale an ivory tower in the shortest time possible. Policy debate was founded in 1957 in an attempt to disguise the throes of the real world with dignified, "intellectual" switch-side arguments. The framers intended it to allow young people to become more active in the world around them and encourage them to do something to help the ailing world. Instead, debaters made the activity into a competition of who could spew the most statistics, impacts, horribly damnable effects/results, screaming evidence at cutthroat speed, and modern debate sprouted as a result. Debate resides close to the top of the proverbial "ivory tower", as the real world gets translated into evidence and impacts, statistics and "strats" to win tournaments. Those who participate for the fun of it are exempt from this definition; it is only applicable to debate when it is applied as a critical theory that can "benefit the world".
Debate, when converted into a social theory, becomes a laughable mockery of the suffering of the world.
