Re: Unofficial Rankings B

How to medal points work with the dropped events? Shouldn't zeros be 40ths or 41sts? Dropped events are put in as zeros, since they don't affect the teams' scores (and are different than no-shows).

Re: Texas 2014

Seven Lakes (my school) won Division C, and the scoring difficulty I noticed was that the trophies were (at least initially) given out by team, not by school, meaning that my team was awarded the second place trophy and the other SLHS team was awarded the first place trophy. Afterwards, my coach tal...

Feliz Navidad! Te quiero desear una feliz Navidad y un próspero Año nuevo.

Re: Bungee Drop C

Can you buy a commercial bungee cord. The rules do not specify if it is illegal or not. Also how do you build the pole to test For your first question, my understanding of the rules is that any material (or to be more specific, any cord, since the rules allow cords to be made of multiple materials)...

Re: Riddle Me This

The youngest son bought a match and a candle. Then he lit the match and used that to light the candle. The candle then filled the barn with light. I believe that is the correct answer, since I remember seeing that riddle before. As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives, Each wife had...
