Least Favorite Event?

Post by ScienceOlympian » March 30th, 2013, 11:48 am

What is your least favorite event?
Were you forced onto the event for a competition and hated it? Did you think the event was amazing and fun before you started but disliked it afterwards?
I hated Keep the Heat/Thermodynamics! So much bad memories. :/
How about you?

Probably thermodynamics. I can never seem to remember to do the insulator and the test (no matter how well/bad) you did never matters.

Personally, I love Keep the Heat and Thermodynamics, but that's just because I'm me, I suppose. Physics and all, y'know?

My least favourite event that I ever did would have to be Dynamic Planet. That event...argh. It was terrible. I can't even begin to express my animosity towards that event.

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.

Whaaaaaaaaaat?

Dynamic planet is the best :D
Maybe because of the topic this year though...gotta love glaciers (mainly cause they're easy).

My least favorite event would be ... Designer Genes. Ugh. I hate biology...

I'm surprised by all these haters of thermodynamics. The study part is super fun times, and the box is rather simple to build and just requires time to get good data for the prediction.

My least favorite event would probably be... I guess TPS, though I still enjoy it. Harmonics is a really limited topic, and most tests I've taken so far have done a very poor job testing it. It's also the only event that's made me open up a bio textbook since middle school... Bio is no fun.

I've got to say Rocks and Minerals. I've done the event for one competition and the study for it was not appealing to me. Fermi Questions comes in a close second though just for the sheer vastness of things to know...
