Re: Math Monstrosity on the Cloud (June 18th)

Hi! I'm interested in playing, is it not too late? (I may bring a teammate and I'll announce that by tomorrow, is that also OK?)

Re: Suggestions About ICT Tiebreakers

I think informing people promptly would be sufficient for this, but I still think that half-packets are not a good idea, and especially for ICT given how the NAQT writing system works and how many questions are available, having 1 or 2 additional packets doesn't seem unreasonable.

Suggestions About ICT Tiebreakers

I'm writing this based on some experiences that I've had when I played ICT 2 years ago, as well as some of the experiences of my teammates this time around. I think the current tiebreaker system could be improved. Because as it stands doing a tiebreaker to determine bracket placing usually involves ...

Re: Quizbowl Roundtable: Call for Topics/Participants

This would probably be under "Playing the Game", but the highschool to college transition is pretty rough, and it would be nice to know how to adapt to the college QB environment.

Re: Question Specific Discussion

I answered the skeletal muscle tossup with "striated muscle" and was ruled incorrect. I'm pretty sure they are the same thing. Also, as I said on discussion, "Kannon" should be acceptable for Guanyin/Avalokitesvara.

Re: Has any tournament ever not "suffered from variable bonuses"

Some bonus sets are more variable than others. It's not an illegitimate criticism to make.

Re: General discussion

First off, my sincere apologies for deciding to play this tournament, I realized after the fact that it was a decision made in very bad faith. Secondly, I found the bonus difficulties to be very inconsistent, I can't remember specifics off the top of my head, but that was the impression I got. A new...

Music in Quizbowl

I am fairly sure this has come up before at some point, but I haven't heard any arguments about it, as I am basically a neophyte. Why is classical music considered "Fine Arts" and most other genres "Trash"?

Re: Steps to Conquering the Math Canon?

This is one of the few areas where I have some amount of experience. As Max said, in high school there is a reasonable amount of "elementary mathematics" (nt, combo, euclidean geometry), like the kind that shows up on competitions.I'm not really sure how to learn beyond actually doing a lot of indep...

Re: Where Will You Be Going to College Next Year? 2012-13

Columbia, at least for one year. (As of now it does not look like I'll be staying there). I'd like to continue if I have anything to contribute.

Re: NJ/NY 2013-2014

I should probably give an update on Ithaca, at least so people actually recognize the existence of areas of New York that are signifcantly outside of the metro area. We had some stupid losses at HSNCT, and missed playoffs when we really shouldn't have. (Evident from the scores of our games and conso...
