Re: Texas 2010

the chances of going to nationals from the state is about 6.66% chance. That's not a lot. Chances of getting a trophy are 13.33%. Too bad life isn't pure math. Throw in the funding and the dedication and the talent (as we all must admit that some people are just mad smart) and you will see that cha...

Re: Texas 2010

In my 7th grade year at Kealing, we placed 4th at Regionals before winning state (for one thing, we were all really spooked and studied like crazy). The opposite can just as easily be tru...

Re: Texas 2010

My first year at Beckendorff we were the last to qualify from our region (at a shameful place of 5th out of 20 some) then at state we did abysmally and placed something like 15th (Ask L).

Re: Remote Sensing C

Smallest thing that it can detect is 79 meters in size. I'm not sure what it has to do with pixel size though. Was there any other given information? As in the ppi or something?

Re: Fossils B/C

I'm not sure if this has been asked before but... What exactly do they want us to know about insects and crustaceans?! That's even more vague then Eurypterids...

The assassinator discusses his 'new pad'

Or is that too obvious?
