Re: Interest in second video games tournament?

I only got to play one round of this at MO, before the plug was pulled. After that one round, I weeped, for I had, for the briefest of moments, touched all creation, and knew that the rest of my existence would forever be judged in terms of that moment. Don't believe me?

Re: SCT 2009 discussion

While I agree with most of the above with regards to talking between questions, I would be very surprised if interrupting bonus parts went without consequences over an entire tournament.

Re: Penn Bowl Discussion

When you say the permeability of free space one was "a bad idea", I can only assume you mean it was guessable as soon as it starts talking about magnetic fields. I am inclined to agree, but it still requires some knowledge of formulas that don't come up in the classroom setting (or at least in my c...

Re: Minnesota Open discussion

Hey, so addressed to Gautam: The science was, overall, good. It's hard to write science well, but you've managed to write good tossups on the higher-level canon. A couple of grievances-- The sifting property in the Dirac Delta tossup came way too early, and there's no way it should be in power. I'd ...

I searched for "Sterne" and I got a 2007 Penn Bowl tossup (which does mention him) but then I also get a 2007 ACF Nats bonus on Lang Xang...

The true implication of NAQT's anti-semitism is that NAQT is anti-ACF. As everyone knows, ACF is actually a horde of Jewishes. Of the current full members of ACF, 4/6 are Jewishes. Additionally, ACF Nationals has in the past been held on Easter weekend, an action only Jews could perpetrate. Example...
