I too once tried to make a qems2 account, but the email verification link never worked for me.

Can I see the tossups on Everything that Rises Must Converge (it's my favorite short story) and The Prose...
Looking at the stats for the 2019 PACE NSC, I noticed that the P/BB (points per bounceback) statistic correlates very poorly with both overall placement and P/B (points per bonus). I understand that P/BB is a function of both the skill of the team and the skill of the teams they play against (playin...
Take organized, neat, bulleted, pencil-and-paper notes! Whenever I'm studying on the internet or from a nonfiction book, I take notes similarly to those that I would take in a history class. The act of writing things down manually is a great method for memorization, and full pages are great for skim...
