Re: Buzzers, advice, life

Thank you for confirming that I am indeed real Chris. I will update my profile to reflect that I am no longer back at WJ when I get the chance. Also, thanks to Eric Huff, and I apologize for not having the right email on the profile.

Buzzers, advice, life

So it's been a couple of years y'all, but now I'm a teacher at a charter school in New Orleans (not one of the high performing ones) and I want to start a qb team. Does anyone know of where to get a buzzer for dirt cheap, or better yet have one they don't want? (wishful thinking, but why not ask). I...

I remember once when they were picking the desk positions a team (probably quince orchard) was complaining about how they had a disadvantage at that position, and the It's Academic people said that they had done an analysis of winners over the years and every position had roughly the same number of ...

Re: It's Ac Semi Results

Much apologies about the gum... :oops: The St. Albans crowd was truly impressive, as was their enthusiasm, although it did give the taping more of a hockey game feel than an It's Ac game feel. Since RM and WJ have prom the night before the finals, I think it's safe to say the crowd at the finals wi...

In an attempt to keep this from turning into an Illinois debate, here are some things I have gotten out of this great game:

1. Place to focus my love of loud, sharp noises and flashing lights
2. Increased knowledge of explosives
3. What happens when certain things are microwaved

I've experienced only his tournament questions (i.e., not television), which aren't nearly as bad as the example you gave. My recollection is that there were about two more clues in there prior to the "giveaway." (While I agree that quizbowlers should know Updike is the author of Rabbit Run , it's ...

Great tournament, well run and I really liked the round robin format. Whipple says he might steal it if we run a tournament. Questions were the best I have heard this year, well-written and good distribution too (Gotta love it when you hear questions on both G-Unit and peroxisomes). Anyway, congrats...

First round of tapings were today. Ours was the first of the day and it took about 2 hours due to difficulties with the sound system. Not fun, and we didn't stay for the rest so we only know our score. If anyone has other results, please post them. Osbourn- 365 West Springfield- 370 Walter Johnson- ...
