is crime going to be combined with environmental chem or not? cuz in the edited tentative list it doesnt say anything about enviro.chem
personally i prefer crime being crime and not combined with anything else...

A combined env chem and crime busters event would be someone stealing a tree! and then you have to analyze dirt to find the culprit!
maybe they take the soil around the uprooted tree and magically find random bits of soil on the suspects' clothing and you have to match the samples!
See, at first I suggested people stealing trees and everyone laughed at me, but it's all coming together now.
I really hope they do not take fingerprints out (people usually wear gloves if they want to uproot trees don't they?) because fingerprints are so easy...
At the same time I am looking forward for a bit of a challenge. mmm I love crime ♥


I just reread this and I now realize that I sound really stupid in this post. :lol:
I get overly excited about crime sometimes...

They're only as easy as the quality of the copy machines copying (if they did it that way) or how well they did them with ink.

Right-- it's so easy because the copy machine barely picks up the print. :P

The new Division B event guidelines are out. Fibers, hair, and plastics are out; water testing is in. Lots of new material to learn. Does anyone know any links to learn about the water testing? I didn't even understand the writeup on it in the event guidelines. Guess we've got a lot of work to do here

It actually is probably pretty minor though since combined, hairs, polymers, and fibers were hardly worth much, maybe 20% i think at most. There is still tons of other stuff, so this probably wont change the event concept, just be a new thing to learn.

Water testing is only worth 10% and is a one-for-one swap with Hair/Fibers/Plastics. This is the scoring for this year: Unknowns 50%, Analysis/WriteUp 25%, Water Testing 10%, Physical Evidence 10%, Chromatography 5%.
