No, we did quite well, 11th isn't that bad. It's just that the words were rather easy and you had to say DNA for deoxyribonucleic acid...

did you really? that wasn't allowed when i was in the event. the whole no acronyms thing and the part about it only being two words kinda wouldn't let us do that. (some competitions actually counted the letters as words....don't know why they didn't just tell us not to use acronyms....) i don't remember what our clue for it was though. i think it had something to do with gene pools and stuff like that. we usually had one word that we said and then the other person would go through a short list of words. it just made it easier to remember the clues that way.

Sorry, that wasn't clear. I meant to say that 49ers decided to say "DNA" for deoxyribonucleic acid and we didn't get that one because that wasn't allowed. Plus I think they went over that specific example in the beginning of the event when they explained everything. :roll:

In my opinion, anything below 10th is bad

I did not!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: :( :( :| :!: :?:

I don't even think deoxyribonucleic acid was one of the words!!!!

And if that's an insult to me as to say I don't listen to the supervisor, well i Do to Listen to the Director (and
I take all offense meant!!!)
