This is the reason that nobody seems to like the trash at any tournament, with the possible exception of some trash tournaments where almost everyone expects going in that they'll loathe or, at best, actively ignore a huge fraction of the topics. This is manifested in the phenomenon of people spending hour upon hour complaining about trash in academic tournaments, the least enlightened about specific trash topics or even answers ("NOT ENOUGH ANIMU! (;)_______(;)", "Did you really have to write a whole bonus on triple lutzes?" etc.) and the somewhat-more-enlightened-but-still-unenlightened about the general character of the trash ("Skewed too old!","I'd have liked a better balance of sports to movies..." etc.) However, even if you could change the trash distribution to how you'd like it, it would just piss everyone else off. After all, your preferences are stupid, too!The Iron Law of Trash wrote:All trash that you play on sucks, because it's pop culture stuff other people like and it is well-known how sucky the pop culture stuff other people like is.
Now that you're all in on the secret, I hope you'll understand from now on that trash is always going to make most people unhappy and the only solutions are to stop caring about the tournament it appears in altogether, to accept that those questions are always going to suck on average, or to work to get them removed. I hope that for national academic tournaments, you'll join me in the latter course.
