Um, I dont think so.
Possibly he mean PVCs, not PCPs, but it could also be something besides a hallucinogenic drug.

...that is the wrong PCPs. Pentachlorophenols. But it is understandable, that was the most obscure of my short list. I don't even know where I learned about them.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Good luck! Make it to Nats, so you can tell us about the test. It sounds like you have this event in the bag.
There once was a group of teens
Who were lean mean science machines.
They liked to win medals,
when everything settles
and their favorite color was green.

Very similar to the regional and invitational. It was easy, so I thought that we would have done worse, with a tedious population thing we had to graph.
They also asked about the acronym NIMBY, which I knew because my history teacher last year got very off-topic all the time.

NIMBY. . .as in, "Not in my backyard"?
