Is this the longest active thread on scioly right now? I can't think of any others off the top of my head.
If I remember correctly, there was a religion thread on the old board that was slightly older and went on for the same amount of time this thread was active. If that is here too, then this would be the second oldest... if not, then yes it is!

I do believe this would be the oldest *active* one. I haven't seen any posts get in-depth about religion since around the time I joined the board (and I have no problem with that at all)

A.) Definitely
B.) Possibly

Hey, Montana has their State Tournament on November 22. Talk about brutal.
That is brutal, but hey, they only run it with 14 events. http://www.montana.edu/wwwmtso/10_c_scores.pdf Interesting how they mark attendance right there on the score sheet.
:lol: Let's compare this to AL, shall we? Our states are in March. Guess how many events they run for Division C? Seven. Here, look: http://216.186.205.33/scienceolympiad/p ... sC2011.pdf. :lol: Montana ain't got nothin' on us.

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

I would say the answer is possibly because his laser could use corn waves, but the given information does not preclude the use of any other type of waves. Two supporting reasons:
1. Corn waves may not be the only type of waves which are also grain waves.
2. The laser is never specified to only use grain waves and other types of waves which are defined as grain waves (ie corn waves), and could also run on other classes of waves despite being called a grain laser.

Add the following stipulation: All grain waves are amber waves. Does the laser fire amber waves of grain?

Also take into account the fact that not only are there few events, but the states competition is based on the previous years material. AKA, while you are all studying stuff for the 2012 season, Montana will be testing with 2011 material.

On another note, have you guys heard of the chemical compound Dihydrogen Monoxide? Please help ban this horrible chemical for the safety of the WORLD. It is a very dangerous chemical, but the government is lying about Dihydrogen Monoxide's harmful effects.
