Spite the Box: A College/Open Meta Packet from ~2015-Present for the Terminally Online

Post by Aaron's Rod »

Exactly what it says on the tin--I wrote a college/open meta packet over the summer. I read it after CO to quite a lot of people, but not everybody who might like to hear it did. I will be reading it tonight (October 21st) on Discord at 8 PM Central. There are 10 tossups and 9 bonuses. There is a 99% chance I will not come up with another bonus in the next 5 hours.

The note I wrote to myself is as follows:
This packet was intended to source minimally from private channels, and instead relies almost entirely on publicly-available sources. Most questions require at least some knowledge of the forums, although some will require the Discord, ILQBM, Quizpolling Purposes, and real life. While bonuses generally have 3 related parts, those parts may not differentiate well between easy/medium/hard.

Several people have told me that announcing a packet 5 hours before its reading "doesn't work for them" (?), so if you want to hear it sometime this week you can fill this out too. I'm happy to read it multiple times.
