What powder that is used in Crime Busters is poisonous? I don't think any of them are.

Alright poisonous is probably exaggerating - but unhealthy is very possible right?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the rules are probably not written for taste-reliant competitors lol

Taste for liquids is probably worse. The smell of ammonia is already enough to make me nearly pass out...

Put in Code Busters 2 weeks before a competition, did it as a duo with a friend put in the same time as me. We got 2nd.

Essentially soloed Code at both invitationals so far this year (I was teaching my partners the ciphers during the test), placed both times.

My brother yelling at me because I didn't have Facebook and didn't see location changes of an event at an invite, and ran across campus twice and was late to our event. And it was snowing.
Our entire team running around the UPenn campus together before awards and all having fun, despite not all being super close friends - it was also sunny and the perfect weather.
All the older kids, guys and girls, comforting me in the bathroom when I had a mental breakdown during SciOly practice after school due to non-SciOly related events.
Spending time at states with someone I really valued at the time. Was also snowing. That was a good day.
Having a snowball fight at states before awards.
Tim. Iykyk. Also Sprinkles.
HERPE BINDERS oh my god - breaking the schooler printer which...never worked properly again for the rest of the school year.
One of my best friends crying at our end of the year event because she just could not verbalize how much Scioly had meant to her.
All the silly things...jump rope with the rubber bands, screaming/crying because WIDI, kicking around a soccer ball after school in the empty hallways, running in the wrong direction at Brown for a good five minutes (ended up 20 minutes late), crying at half my competitions lol
Past Events: A&P, DD, DG, Exp, Herpe, IS, Orni, PM, WIDI etc.

On the way to an invitational, we got off our plane at 12:15 and we had to make our connecting flight by 12:25. This flight was in another concourse that we had to take a shuttle to get to. We barely made it because they held the flight a few extra minutes since there were so many of us on the flight.
