Ugh. He's so annoying and such a poor winner! I'd much rather we lose in his events then have him represent the US. Although I guess is better than if Trump won 20 golds...
Aww, I love phelps. I thought it was kinda funny actually how he reacted to his medaling.


On the other hand, I can't wait for all of the Women's events finals! Kocian has really good uneven bar routines and form, and she'll probably take gold in that event with Mustafina and Douglas battling it out for silver and bronze. Vault for women's is a wild card ( the money's on Simone honestly) with a ton of competitors doing the Amanar and the Cheng vaults, so the variation isn't too high. Simone got the highest in qualifications with a 16.000 and 16.100, but her score hasn't been as high during team finals and all around finals, and if it keeps decreasing, there won't be a clear winner. Floor has always been Raismans strong suit, but Simone has beaten her everytime in competition this year so floor finals should be rather interesting. Beam could be anywhere between Biles and Hernandez.

Let's say that I'm bad at Sassy games. First chance at being officer = dies next round. Thought about self protecting but decided it was too selfish. Sorry about being such a poor replacement Jasper_Kota. :P Oh, well. Got some suspects now.

True. Thanks. :) I wasn't expecting it to be me either - I've never been targeted before. :P

“I was born with the devil in me,' [Holmes] wrote. 'I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no more than the poet can help the inspiration to sing.” That should have been my sig in game 108. It fits so perfectly :cry:

The amount of parents (and students!) asking "Does Science Olympiad look good on college apps?" is ridiculous. You're in middle school. Chill. And second of all, if you're doing scioly for the sole purpose of having a good college app, you're in it for the wrong reason.

This just goes to show the awful team culture my school has outside the A team. I find that the people who actually make the best team always care about the team results more than their individual results or concerns.

If one puts something on one's college app from middle school, one should probably be doing more in high school.
