NEWTON-LEIBNIZ ACHIEVEMENT: using the ideal gas law to derive the many gas laws, but albeit having completely forgotten that they exist, and in the end getting the correct answer though not knowing how.
Many instances, but this was one of the memorable ones.

UN-STREET SMART ACHIEVEMENT: Ran around half the campus trying to find Game On, and found that there was a much easier way after the event

Can I make a new achievement?

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Thermo at the Hammond invy was terrible. Firstly, since it was a small invy each attending school had to Procter an event, and this guy's team was late so he wasn't there for impound. So instead of an adult running impound 3 highshool girls that had no idea how to do an impound. And I asked them where to leave my graphs and charts and they said keep them with you, so I did. Later during the actual event, he tried giving us water that was below the temp. And I told him and he was like, oh uh ok, you guys can start the test while we wait for the water to warm. The test was fine, good length and hard, so nothing too bad there. But ohhhhhh boy, when he did impound. Firstly, he did impounds while we took the test, and pulled us aside for it, taking time out of our 25 min test period. Then, we looked at my box of tools and said,"You can't have that, what's the point of impound if you can make adjustments to your box?". Well I wanted to start tearing him down, but I simply showed him the spot in the rules where it said you can have tools and whatnot. He just shrugged and didn't say anything. What I really wanted to say was,"What's the point of impound if you aren't here?" Then this man said, "Oh, and you didn't bring any charts or graphs so I'm gonna have to dock you for it." BOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY I WANTED TO THROW DOWN. I told him that the 3 highschool girls talking in their little clique said not to leave them here. And this man said, " Well the rules say that you're supposed to leave them at impound." Ok, 2 things. 1. You weren't even there, and 2. Who are you to be referencing the rules? You tried giving us 50 degree water, and said I can't have tools with me. OOOOOOOOOO I went to my coach after the event and she went straight to the director and she made sure my graphs were taken.

It was reallyyyyyy bad but I ended up getting 3rd so it was worth it.

I think everyone's got that one. :lol:
thermo proctors who don't know what they're doing tho.... cost me so many medals
the best part of the above post : "you tried giving us 50 degree water"
but that is technically allowed for this year because they use k values to judge.

I mean even if, the rules are the rules and it would mess predictions up greatly.

I'm willing to bet that anyone that competed in thermo has had to deal with this period... -_-

Uhh, I wouldn't call ES's idiots. You have no idea how hard it is to make a test for an event you personally haven't done, and they are volunteering their own time to help. Sometimes it doesn't go down well, but usually, this type of thing happens at an invite, where tbh it doesn't matter too much in the grand scheme of things.

Surprised I haven't posted in here yet! Here are mine........

BEAT THE CURVE ACHIEVEMENT: Definitely what happened during Wright Stuff at state. Our plane barely got into the air and then crashed anyway. We still got 2nd because so many teams were a no-show for WS. :o

MULTIPLE GUESS ACHIEVEMENT: When you do mainly study events, this kind of thing happens a lot.

O2 ACHIEVEMENT: I do Fossils and Experimental Design with the same person! This happened with the exact same partner too when we did Ecology together along with EXPD.

UNCONTESTED ACHIEVEMENT: 2nd place had 62 points, we had 28.

RAGE ACHIEVEMENT: This happened at an invitational I was at! Fortunately though they found the mixup and sent the medals to the teams who actually did place after the competition, so we had a mini awards ceremony during a team meeting.

UN-STREET SMART ACHIEVEMENT: I got lost trying to find the building Wright Stuff was in, a person biking saw me mumbling under my breath and looking panicked and she asked me if I needed help lol.
2016-17 Season: Experimental Design, Invasive Species, Wind Power, Forenics

I have some more to add:
POTATO ACHIEVEMENT: Compete in the same event for two years in a row but still stink at it the second year
FALSE FLEX ACHIEVEMENT: Discuss your top-notch practice scores in loud voices with your partner prior to the event, then utterly fail
(My partner and I talking loudly at regionals about our 3:10 flight times for WS in practice followed by our plane refusing to lift and only flying for 15 seconds)
FLASHY FAILURE ACHIEVEMENT: Fail so spectacularly in a build event that you make the event supervisor's day and don't even feel disappointed
(Our Mission lighting on fire due to nichrome wire being powered for too long. Pretty decent sized flame and the ES said "that was almost as sensational as last years". We thought we deserved some style points for that)
