Hey, me too! British people: I wouldn't mind attending a few practices or staffing a tournament, if Americans are allowed to do such things in your country.

Re: 2015 ACF Fall general discussion

Can the tossup on Richard Nixon be posted? I think I got hosed by the tossup. The first line mentioning "this man" quoting Teddy Roosevelt's line "The light has gone out of our lives" pretty much triggered an instantaneous buzz from me with Jawaharlal Nehru, who made an extremely famous speech with...

Re: 2015 ACF Fall general discussion

Hey everyone, I don't really do a lot of writing/editing so I'd appreciate any feedback in bio/chem/physics. Hey, me too! Except, duh, for my categories. Feel free to PM or email me if you don't want to post publicly. I'd like to thank Gaurav and Richard for stewarding me, an insecure and inexperie...

The protagonist of this film, who was once in love with his sister-in-law Martha, has the catchphrase "That'll be the day." This film, which closes with the protagonist framed in a {cabin} (*) door as he walks away...

Re: 2014 HSNCT discussion

13: Jay-Z TU* This was by far my favorite question of the entire tournament -- if I recall correctly, it was clued entirely with lyrics from Kanye songs? I'd love to see it posted here.

Re: General Discussion

The only blatantly trash film tossups I remember hearing on the packets I played were on Wes Anderson, Napoleon Dynamite, and sharks. I assumed Woody Allen, France, and Vertigo were included in the arts category, though I could be mistaken (especially with Woody Allen). Woody Allen was in the arts ...
