Okay, I'm looking at the Green Gen test from the Rustin Invitational on the test exchange, and the first tiebreaker is "...Choose one way you could improve the sustainability of your school...Make sure it is realistic...". I originally was going to say "Increase awareness of importance of recycling through education", but then I thought about it a bit more, and realized that it is extremely unrealistic; something like that would never work in middle and high schools. More solar panels it is...

Heh, that was my test! I think I would consider education about recycling realistic, however it would have to go along with practical application in order to have an actual effect. Solar panels are nice too though!

Is this the longest thread on the Forums? (Has anyone been around long enough to know that?)

It's been a while since I last kept track of them, but are the Sassy games still running? I remember being in 100 or 101, I think.

Nope, they died a death of inactivity. Feel free to bring them back if you want.

Maybe if I can be mysterious enough. Ah, sad to see them go. They seemed fun, even just watching them.
