I enjoyed reading this set. Some typographical errors that it might be useful to correct (some substantive, some not):

In Harvard/UCSD/Swarthmore A, Joe Tinker's name is misspelled "Tinkers" and the German name of the Ring cycle is given as Der Ring des Nibelungens when it should be Der Ring des Nibelungen.

In Michigan State C/Cambridge A/Illinois A, Miguel de Cervantes's name is misspelled "Cervante".

In NYU A/McGill A/Georgia E, Gerry Adams's name is misspelled "Adam". This is exceptionally minor, but the tossup on Baja California contains an instruction not to accept or prompt on "Alto California", and indeed that should not be accepted or prompted on, but presumably the non-answer listed should be "Alta California".

In Rice A/KSU/UCF/Purdue A, rumspringa is misspelled "rumpsringa".

In FSU/Johns Hopkins A/Carleton College A, Madrid's cheli is not a dialect but rather a jargon/slang. Just to nitpick, the Movida was more of an eighties' movement, associated with Tierno Galván's mayoralty (1979-86).

This is late, but the Editors 2 packet's "boats" myth tossup says
The giantess Hringhorni helps move an enormous one of these items during Baldr's funeral.
My understanding is that Baldr's ship itself is Hringhorni, while it was the giantess Hyrrokkin that moved the ship.
