Again- it was a joke. It doesn't have to reflect reality accurately.

I've never seen 300 either. However, the "THIS IS SPARTA!" quote from it that Flavorflav based his comment on is widely known.

I would like to stress- nobody was trying to insult FM. They were merely riffing on FM's utter dominance.

i know the quote i just didn't get the connection--i get your point about it being a joke, and if I were you I would joke abot it too--we sometime joke about the kids on Eagle Hill's team being robots--i just get annoyed sometimes and don't really think about stuff--i think you know that by now though

Sorry guys, as others have stated, it was supposed to be a joke/movie reference. Great movie though, I've watched it like 20 times (every time I feel the need to workout after)

Oh, and just a random comment about people taking things personally.

Nobody on this board (at least not me) ever posts things, or shouldn't ever post things, to put a specific school down, you know what I mean. Firstly, it is just wrong and I feel like the people in Science Olympiad are better than that, but also a lot of the teams on these boards are fantastic and have no reason to put other schools down for they too achieve a lot. To me, just being in Science Olympiad puts everybody on this board ahead of 99.9% of the world population. Fact.

Agreed. SciO is life to those who understand it, and underrated by those who don't.

Agreed again
another random thing here--if I seem annoyed i'm often not as annoyed as I act i'm just not good at being subtle about it
I joke about teams too especially about Eagle Hill our rival middle school-its all in good fun I just don't think about things very much I just glance at them

Whose coach Leonidas?

Leonidas was the king of Sparta who led the Greeks at Thermopylae, and (in the film) kicked the Persian ambassador into a bottomless pit while uttering the line I paraphrased.

Honestly, I have nothing but respect for you guys. I'm sure that jealousy lay under some of the early comments on this thread, but I think most of us were just riffing on all of the rumors about how you get to be so dominant. All in fun, for my part at least.

I don't know how we got to be so dominant--I should find that out

I've definitely heard of schools with Science Olympiad classes. In fact, I've heard many people saying that our biggest rival has classes for Science Olympiad. I might as well also add that this rival team has won many, many times. My school doesn't have classes, but we are hoping to set up a Science Olympiad study hall during lunch and advisory periods.

See, basically the entire SciO team at my school hangs out in the Tech teacher's room (who coaches our building events) during any free period, lunch, before school, after school... so it's sort of like an impromptu class, albeit one in which we all slack off :D

I guess if people had room on their schedules, SO class would be useful, but it can't be required to be in SO, because some people may not have openings for it but want to be in SO.
