I'd love Keshav if he stopped his incredibly loud snoring at 3 AM. The man has unrivaled skills at getting Angels to go after him instead of me on Resistance: Fall of Man co-op on Hard. Also, Cody Simons is a natural at carrom. Kid is a beast.

Re: DC/Metro Area 2007-08

Wait, Daichi, who's a junior on Whitman A? I'm confused. In addition we will move up some people from our C team who know philosophy, European history, and the like. Hopefully the person concerned remembers his European history; with a nickname like "Shafto" you never can tell. The fact that TJ is g...

Re: NAQT HSNCT Question Discussion

That Force tossup was awesome. I never thought that reading the Thrawn trilogy would be of any use in Quizbowl, but it turned out to be... It probably shouldn't have, in legit academic qb. Thats the point. Since there are virtually no trash tournaments at the high school level, people just put tras...

Re: NAQT HSNCT Question Discussion

One more thing: it's inexcusable to mention Erwin Rommel in the first clue of a Capporetto tossup, especially in the finals. Oh, I don't know; sure, there are harder clues, but those involve an awful lot of operational detail (one of the many major problems with the house-written TJ tournament this...

Re: 08 HSNCT Live Coverage/Post Tourney Discussion - TJ Wins!

You can purchase one from NAQT, or you can look at their sample packet, which can be easily found by navigating the NAQT website. But it seems like you may need help doing that so I found it for you. http://naqt.com/samples/t1163packet_1.pdf http://naqt.com/samples/t1163packet_1.pdf We all think th...

Re: 2008 NAQT HSNCT Announcements

Since we're (we being TJ) getting in to Chicago tomorrow, we decided to do a routine check on our hotel reservations at Wyndham O'Hare and found that apparently our rooms that we had reserved at the NAQT price had been canceled in late April (around the same time the secondary hotel overflowed). We ...

I remember a "barbarian invaders of Roman Empire" bonus that seemed to pick the three most obscure invading tribes and then give vague clues on them. That was me feeling evil. Actually, so was the Diadochi bonus...in fact, a lot of the hard bonuses, especially in history, can be traced to me experi...

Round of 16: Charter A 730, Charter F 35 That's insane. Yeah...I read for that round...pretty wild stuff. I liked how with all of the confusion in that room we still managed to come out with a reasonable result. Also, it must be nice to have an F Team - or any lower team from the same school - who ...

That was our TJ A that incorporated elements of TJ C, and IIRC that was William and Mary. ;)

Oh, I don't know. I never did really like quiz bowl science questions in general...if a science question is such that I can get the answer, then it's probably a bad question. ;) I do think that many American history tossups are silly. Plumbing the dark depths of about four hundred years of really bo...
