Someone suggests getting a bag at CVS. Max says no. Kai: "Are you really too cheap to buy a seven cent bag?" Me: "Maybe he just wants to save the environment." Max: "Of course I care about our planet, I'm a committed globalist."

Kai: "When naming the group chat, does the '+' in B+ go before or after the 'B'?"

Max: "After - how the hell do you not know this?"

That I hassled you --- is true.
What I believe or don't believe, or have in the past, is not yours to contest.
I willingly admit my lack of faith is often disturbing.

After reading a spurious post in the SoCal Quizbowl Facebook group, we pulled over on the side of the highway to watch a promised Columbia Quizbowl hype video featuring Ben Zhang. Sadly, the video was only a link to Usher's hit single "Yeah."

Ha! So we're not the only qb team with this problem! Doesn't help that he also went the year after and came like 3rd or something.

Kai spills the sugar from the Sour Patch Kids everywhere in the back seat of the car. Laments failing to lick it up earlier.
