Re: Crime Busters B

I've been having trouble finding the reactions of the white powders and potassium iodide. I really have no way to test them out myself, so can someone help me out?

Re: WHY the metric system exclusively, ESPECIALLY for builds

Anyone have insight into why all of Olympiad uses the metric system exclusively? This doesn't seem to reflect the real world very well, at least not for any of the industries I've worked in. It's especially frustrating on builds where they use 30cm to approximate a foot. Except its NOT a foot. So t...

Re: Indiana 2020

I agree. I think their national medalists were mostly seniors, so I'm expecting a much weaker performance overall. Maybe thats personal bias talking, maybe they can comeback, but looking at results - their performance has been declining. As for Raymond Park Invite, it will be interesting to see who...
