Re: Rocks and Minerals Question Marathon

Ooh yay. I've been operating under the assumption that epidote occurs in clusters, while tourmaline is usually a single crystal. That's what I've observed, though i'm not sure if that rule is 'set in stone.' Haha In Soviet Russia, mineral identify you! but we live in America, so identify this miner...

Re: Science Olympiad Stories

I don't really have a single story, but my team always has the weirdest discussions during down time when a majority of us are in the room. At state last weekend, there was a rather heated debate about just what vegetables and fruits were involving celery and legums. I was out of the room at the tim...

Re: The Nerdfighter Thread

I think I have an idea of what you're talking about. Does cuteness as of late have anything to do with it? If not I'm confused.

Edit: Just re-read your post. YES. You're not alone. Though I'm new to the whole nerd-fighting thing.

Re: Protein Modeling C

My advice is to treat the on-site like it's a pre-build. I can't believe I haven't realized that <facepalm>. Thank goodness I've been paying attention in Bio class lately, we're just getting to knockout mice and just went through protein synthesis. My research for state is now much more streamlined...

Re: Protein Modeling C

On the regional test, one of the questions on the regional test had to do with Cys203 and Arg233. It asked for the importance of these amino acids to XIAP.

Re: 2012 AMC

I was wondering what this test was, until I sat down to take it today and remembered this thread. First time I took it (as a sophomore :P, I'm slow like that)... Unsure how I did though. Anyone know when the 10B scores/answers are out? I almost completely forgot about it (Those of us that signed up ...
