Re: 2012 ICT: question-specific discussion

The Old Capulet tossup, I think, should have said also accept "Lord Capulet," although I buzzed off of half-remembered knowledge, so it's possible I'm wrong. The moderator in my room accepted Lord Capulet from the other team, although apparently according to Wikipedia: Capulet is the patriarch of t...

Re: ICT Prediction Thread

4. Harvard Last year’s ICT winner, I don’t think that they will repeat the feat and go for the trifecta because of their loss of Andy, who got a huge NAQT boost. With that being said, this team has shown their ability to regroup from that loss by adding the former State College players Graham Moyer...

Not only that, but the PPB of the teams is strictly decreasing.

Re: VCU Open 2011 Thanks & Discussion

A clue about The Glass Bead Game said one of these mentored Knecht, but he has so mentors in that book I was rushing through my mind to figure out exactly which one was wanted. In this case at least, while I'd like to see the question again, I think it's fairly clear that they're referring to the M...

Re: VCU Open 2011 Thanks & Discussion

What are the alternate early answers, if any, to the image compression TU in Round 6? I powered it in the first line after hearing "discrete cosine transform" but on further reflection "audio compression" would still have been a valid answer at that point, unless there's something there I'm forgetti...

Re: PSAT/NMSQT @ St. Anselm's Abbey School (3/12/2011)

I wonder what the highest PPB for an E Team is an any tournament. TJ E has got to be up there at over 17PPB. http://results.scobo.net/SQBS.aspx?org=Bellarmine&id=2&page=standings Okay, is that like an actual "real" E Team, though? You guys notoriously split up your teams in interesting ways. TJ pre...

Re: PSAT/NMSQT @ St. Anselm's Abbey School (3/12/2011)

One of TJ E's games against Longfellow has somewhat messed up stats -- it says we heard 21 bonuses and got 50 points on them, which is incorrect in several ways (also, it says there were 0 tossups heard). My record of the game shows 160 points earned on 10 bonuses heard, which is consistent with the...
