Article in Slate about ACF Nationals

The long-awaited article about quizbowl for Slate has arrived!

Re: Odd Ways of Learning Things

I have a reputation for this because I've answered a lot of really strange things. The problem is that I hardly remember what I get at tournaments. I know about the now-obscure but famous-in-his-time French academic painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau because I follow the blog of James Gurney, who wr...

The bonus about supersaturation said something about it happening when there's an excess of solvent in the mixture, when it definitely should be an excess of solute.

People put up audio on Youtube all the time. Just play it over a blank screen or a picture of a buzzer or whatever.

You can always play at the site in your ACUI region, or the site closest to your school, so it should be fine.

Re: Uncooperative coach

OAC's really weird. It has three rounds, a category round with ten set categories, one question to each team per category with bouncebacks, and one tossup which should be pyramidal. That's ten pyramidal questions there. After this is the alphabet round, which has twenty worksheet questions all start...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Centre T-Party Mirror 2/13/2010

This was a quality tournament, and as a bonus it was a nice change of scenery from the flatness of the land around the Midwestern plains at the colleges OSU usually goes to for tournaments. I am definitely looking forward to attending later tournaments here.
