Discussion for Astronomy C.

-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Does anyone think the topic will change for next year? It's been variable stars for a really long time.

It better, I got stuck with variable stars for the three years I was on the team and I'm sick of them now.

Just checked SOINC and there isn't a subject listed so you'll just have to wait until the rules come out in September.

That's just lovely. :? Ummm... Didn't the rules last year say something about a star or DSO that would be on the list until 2011 or until the event rotates out (which it won't)?

My bet is it's staying because of

Yeah but they could change the subject and still ask questions about it. I don't think it's happening though, now that you mention it.

Topic should be changing, guys. If it doesn't, be very, very suprised.
Old Events:
Astronomy, Remote Sensing (Both Mars and Global Warming), Dynamic Planet (Oceanography/Earthquakes and Volcanoes), It's About Time, Technical Problem Solving, and I really don't want to count, but did fail at-Fermi Questions.

We are all waiting eagerly for subjects come out, when that happens we'll decide weather to be surprised or not.

I think the topic might be changing to galaxies.

When do you guys think people will get access to the rules and the topics for everything? I mean I know people can order it tomorrow, but did people pre-order it? How quickly do you think it will get to people?

Well, you can actually mail-order it now, but there's no point in not waiting until tomorrow to e-order. I would presume that it would get to you in 10 days or so, but I've never ordered anything myself from them so I don't know if you can do express shipping or something (Even though it could end up costing more than the $8 for the manual itself).

Apparently you can get it 2nd day for $20. I may do that, I think it's worth it. I don't feel like waiting 10 days (or possibly longer).

We just wait until our coaches go to coaches' conference, wherever it is this year, and they magically bring the rules back with them.

Nice, lol. We don't have magical coaches because it's only our first year.
