Re: Rocks and Minerals B/C

Am I missing something because I don't feel the need to bring a magnifying glass to most competitions? Generally I can tell grain-size without one, and if I'm depending so much on grain-size to help in identification and I still can't figure it out, I move on due to time constraints.

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

On Tuesday I lost my game at a chess meet in one of the worst ways possible. I was going to move a piece to a square that would have practically won the game, but I missed the square. I am never going to live that down. >.<
I lost the game
The game ended two years ago.

Re: Write It Do It B/C

I know some people prefer to write one large paragraph, but my partner and I have been using numbered steps so far. I find this helpful, because I can refer back to a piece I described earlier if I need to. Or do you think this takes up too much time? Also, is labeling each line 1. 2. And so on, ac...

Re: Write It Do It B/C

One time there was a bunch of beads and when I dumped the bag out a bunch went rolling all the way across the room... ooppss... When was that? Was that River Falls or State two years ago? I agree, though. You either get the insanely complex builds are the ones where you need to focus more on connec...

Re: Minnesota 2014

Geez, pretty sure it was my sister and I that carried the team this year.
True that. Wish our boomilever hadn't gotten tier 2'd, but at least now they know.

Re: Write It Do It B/C

Yeah, I've read them all thoroughly. I just need some tips on what it's like to BE in the actual competition, maybe some help from a past competitor. Now that you've done that... BREATHE! As we say in physics class, "When in doubt, break it down into component parts!" Clarify and re-clarify, but no...

Re: Write It Do It B/C

Can someone help us get a grasp of what we need to do, and tips? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?
Have you read and re-read the rules? Have you read the wiki? Both are important to read. Or are those two sources still confusing?

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

This entire week was dress-up/spirit week at my school. My chem teacher from last year was a dragon, and her sons were knights in shining armor. Adorable levels to the max.
