**UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT**
I loved Mystery Architecture, and think it's a pretty good event.

(Not gonna argue about it. I'll respect your opinion so please respect mine)
I'm just saying as a whole, inquiry events aren't the best. Sure, there's Fermi and stuff, but then stuff like Ping-Pong Parachute ruins it.

(Besides, the meme wouldn't work if the text was “A good inquiry event (minus...)” :P)
Objection. Most inquiry events aren't useful for zooming in on specific topics. Science Quiz Bowl is good for learning general science knowledge. I wouldn't know about Fermi. Game On is Game On, enough said. Fast Facts was fun, but not useful. Experimental Design is useful, but I'm not sure how many people like it. And Mystery Architecture in the spontaneous event people like the most.

I have literally never done an inquiry event outside of Fermi in my life but please I'm begging you stop with the "inquiry bad" reposts.

It's unfortunate that Bottle Rocket has such a negative connotation, since that's why the name got changed. I preferred the Indoor Bottle Rocket name as well.

I legitimately did not know Indoor Bottle Rocket and Ping Pong Parachute were the same event until yesterday (it was always called PPP in NC).

someone add a meme about NSO renaming events

If I am a venue operator with no knowledge of Science Olympiad events, I am more likely to allow the tournament to use my space for Ping Pong Parachute than Indoor Bottle Rocket.

FAST FACTS FAM!
I will dab on stage twice if I get an award at a SciOly Competition. If you and I go to a competition, and I get an award, you will probably know who I am.

And, if you see me:
Stand up.
And then dab.
See you there!
