Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Unrelated, but does anyone know if AP Music Theory is hard? I've played violin for a long time and I'm in orchestra. If you've played an instrument for a while, you should be fine for all the concepts introduced in Theory. I never took the AP test (because my college didn't offer credit for non-mus...

Re: Crime Busters B

Hmm yeah, HCl + sodium acetate should not fizz to my knowledge... is it possible there was residue from some kind of carbonate in the test tube/container?

I have no idea about the gypsum though, sorry.

Yikes, I thought my inbox was bad, but yours is seriously overflowing with emails.

I also really hope you don't have Gmail notifications on.

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

I will get less spam! :lol: lol nope, they will continue sending you things up until nearly May. I had a literal box full of college spam by the end of the year. And then the spam only intensifies once you get to college. I get like 10 emails on a daily basis and it's only gotten worse since I decl...

Re: Astronomy C

Whether you use you a binder or computer is completely up to you -- I know people who are ardent supporters of both sides -- but the most important thing for both is to make sure that what you have is organized. Don't just put pages or websites in without reading them; make sure you at least look th...

Re: tips for a noob?

Try studying That's a bit... rude... >.> What exactly is stressing you out about your events? Is it the amount of information, your partners, something else? In general, I'd suggest at least taking a temporary step back to de-stress, and make sure you're on top of everything else or that other thin...

Rules manuals are copyrighted and cannot be posted online. Your coach should have ordered one upon registering.

There's also an app for that.

Just got a department-wide email announcing that... we have tea.

Re: Forensics C

1. In my three years of competing in Forensics, I only ever saw pollen/seeds on one test (and it wasn't a particularly good test...), so I honestly don't know. Because the rules specify something like 1-3 subtopics from part e(?), most event supervisors forego it in favor of the classics like finger...

Re: Preventing these advertisements

Could we just include a section in the sign-up section that includes general questions about scioly(such as: What event involves using air pressure to launch a projectile? (air trajectory). Could this prevent bots? We already have a thing like that on the registration page (it just asks "What ...

Re: Events 2015-2016?

While I support the idea of a CS event, I don't know if making games is the right way to go about it. (Though, I definitely agree with bernard that a multi-hour event isn't the way to go.) Now, I don't know about the feasibility of this, especially coming up with test cases, but my intro to programm...

So today is the homecoming game at my school, so there is a pep rally right now. Literally every academic team captain is hiding out in the bathroom because it's the only way to get out of it, since our school cop and some deputies are patrolling the parking lot. "Mandatory fun" Heh, I ne...
