Wake Up Sheeple - the Sequel to [REDACTED]

Post by ErikC » Sun Mar 19, 2017 12:42 am

Wake Up Sheeple, the sequel to [REDACTED], the Conspiracy Side Event, will be held after a major academic tournament in Fall 2017. Besides conspiracy theories of any kinds, packets can include questions of pseudo-science, alchemy, religious heresies, cults, the occult, urban legends and myths, and other material that the mainstream media is trying to hide from you. Once again, there is no distribution but don't write 10 tossups on regarding the authorship of Zambian detective fiction, the Freemasonry imagery present in Armenian oboe sonatas, or the suspicious irregularities of elections for the municipal government of Mirimachi, New Brunswick. Content relating to conspiracies involving race and religion should be written sensitively.

Players will be asked to submit 10 or 20 tossups in packets shortly before the tournament, but they will be unedited at the Ontario site which is TBA (ideally after a major academic tournament in Waterloo). Like [REDACTED], packets will be made from the guerrilla submissions with balance of topics and made available after some editing, and anyone can contribute by sending your tossups to echriste@uwaterloo.ca.

Can I submit a packet? This was one of my favorite sets of trash packets last year, and I'd love to send some questions in.

This sounds like fun - by when would you want the packet?

2017 ACF Fall will likely be the site for this, so before that weekend.

At this rate I can't get one to you this weekend. If you are taking submissions afterwards I might make that depending on when.

This isn't being played for months so there is no rush.

This is happening at the Canada ACF Fall Site (info here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... =8&t=20411).

Make sure to write your 10 or 20 tossups before the New World Order does it for you!

Hate to say this but this slipped my mind; this semester has been brutal on me academically. I don't have anything and I don't think I can get it to you in a timely manner.
