When are the results going to be posted. You know if a health inspector came to the axis tourtaments thier first reaction would be very negative snack food greasy food and viedo games for five hours. Then they would look at the crowd and have a different reaction. i think that these tourtaments break some sterotypes because most of us are somewhat in shape and some of us have social lives. i think MaCdonalds and viedo games makes one healthy in the stomach and the thumbs.

Good Morrow!
This is my first post from a school computer; I'm glad you could all be here for this momentous occasion.
It is my belief that each of us should post a controversial topic for discussion on this forum; otherwise, as Sravan has mentioned, it is unlikely that it shall be utilised to its full potential. For the time being, I shall continue to respect the popular ban on politics, but I shall make an attempt at refuting the logic behind it when next I have little homework; as of this moment, that time seems to be a vague and undefined spot on the horizon, visible only with a telescope. Thus, I will ask this question (first posed, in my hearing, at Band Camp): In a fight between pirates and ninjas, who would win? (My cabin then proceeded, over the next two hours, to have a heated and, at times, vitriolic debate.) Have fun!
Good Day!
-----Pickwick the Second-----


Pickwick, with the class load that you are taking, and it being your Junior year, a homework-free time when you are not sleeping eating, using the restroom, or at an AADL-GT tournament will not exits until sometime during the first few weeks of summer. Even though you will have no homework, your brain will still be wired into doing something school related at that time, so you will sit there in your room with nothing to do, shivering with nervous energy trying to figure out what you should be doing right then. But after a few weeks of that, you realize that the idea of homework won't really show up for another two months or so, and then you settle down into a Summertime routine. (Which, I've found, you get used to right as school starts again.)

I believe that ninjas would win, because of their superior stealth abilities. And they have katanas, which can cut through the pirates' swords in an instant. Plus, ninjas have throwing stars, which could be used to take out the those annoying talking parrots. CURSE YOU TALKING PARROTS!!!!!!!

I would also say Ninjas would win because ninjas have some of the coolest weapons ever made.

[gtplayer:139]

ninjas. they are sneaky and will stab the pirate in the back. katanas are so fun to use in GTA vice city, they are my favorite melee weapon(other then the chain saw) cuz u can sprint with them.

[gtlogo:TMC]


Good Morrow!
Thanks to those who responded; I will now enunciate the parameters for the situation, as established through a lengthy line of questioning at Band Camp. The pirates and ninjas are represented in roughly equal genders, races, heights, and hair colour, though the ninjas' heads are concealed behind a mask; the two groups are assembled on a completely flat, grassy field in the middle of nowhere (measured precisely to the fourth decimal of an inch); the ninjas are each equipped with four shurikens, each of which may be thrown at a speed of approximately twenty miles per hour, for a total distance of sixty feet(I must confess to having forgotten the angle at which they would have to have been thrown), and they throw them with perfect accuracy at a rate of one per three seconds, while the pirates favour muskets, which have a twenty-second reload time but are more likely(75%, as opposed to 60%) to inflict fatal wounds. They are also in possession of shoulder-mounted parrots, which fly at an angle of 45 degrees until they reach a height of 50 feet, from which point they dive at the nearest cloaked figure, temporarily distracting, or even incapacitating, them. At the risk of mentioning politics, I should mention that it has been established, by the moderator of the Band Camp debate to which I have referred, that the pirates are Republicans, while the ninjas are strongly suspected of harbouring sympathies with the Green Party.
While we discussed many other details that could be relevant in the forming of a conclusion, I cannot, at present, locate the list I have. Also, I would like to restate an earlier appeal I had made, which was that all here present would forward any philosophical, elemental, or logical questions they wished others to attempt to answer. This thread is, after all, open, and there is little official business to be discussed, aside from the fact that I liked the leaderboard more with the Friday Tournament scores than without.
Good Day!
-----Pickwick the Second-----


On a grassy field? You're not talking about ninjas vs. pirates, you're talking about ninjas vs. a smelly group of guys with strange clothing, poor dental hygiene, and missing appendages. Pirates have PIRATE SHIPS. Besides, Pirates are obviously libertarians.


Pickwick in that situation the Ninjas win at close range. Say both teams line up with 100 members each and have straight out shoot offs. The first round 60% (the percent killed by shurikens) of the pirates die and 75% of the ninjas die. So we have 40 pirates and 25 ninjas. Now before the Pirates can even reload the remaining ninjas have thrown their 75 other shurikens. So after 40 shurikens the pirates are down to 16 members. They get hit by 16 more shurikens and loss 9 more members. So 7 pirates are left and 19 shurikens are left so they lose another 4. With 3 Pirates left they finally reload (take it the pirates all have 5-6 shurikens in them). So you see the ninjas win with about 20 members left when they kill the last of the pirates.

At longer ranges the pirates win because they can kill 75% of the ninjas before the ninjas can even kill one of them.

But the whole prospect that ninjas or pirates would ever be caught in a grassy field. Since ninjas favor urban and wooded regions and pirates favor sea and urban areas it is more likely they would both meet in a city or town. So it really is hard to tell but I would still go with ninjas, because they are stealth masters and they use ambush tactics. The other fault is that ninjas operate (at largest) in small bands while pirates require a minimum of 20 - 30 people. Because ships need lots of hands to keep them going pirates gathered in larger groups around a ship or two. While assassinations and other stealth missions ninjas do require small quite bands to pull them off. Large bands get in the way of ninjas while small bands are bad for pirates. If ninjas and pirates were to battle in an urban environment with equal numbers then I would go with ninjas but I don't see that happening.

Evil Bus Driver's dad is in the paper's local section. Oh yeah E.B.D. can I come over on halloween help scare kids?

Edit:
I miss read the 60 feet as 6 ft. As long as the ninjas start on an equal footing, that is both sides attack at the same time, the ninjas win.

Pick wick why do you like the english system.
If you are like tp2 in which you believe that the english system rocks the house and is easy to remember then... you shall feel the wrath of your own beloved system...

pop quiz:
how many inches are in a furlong?
you get a nice round number of 7920

how many gallons are in a kilderkin.
there are 18 gallons in a kilderkin.

now for a harder questions that i will leave you with
how many short tons are in a dram?

and on the matter of pirates vs ninjas the answer is obvious. For anyone who has taken a small degree of martial arts, all of the eastern swords techniques are designed to counter force, which the fighting style of the west. Ninjas would dance all over pirates in sword fights. Pirates would not stand a chance.

the swordsmanship of pirates is really pathetic they use strenght to overpower their openents. Now I am going to do the rambling, because it depends on which pirates and from where and from when, but in general ninjas will destroy.

Good Morrow!
While it is true that I do use the English system of measurement, He-who-once-was-BCL, I generally restrain myself to the more common conversions; furlongs, kilderkins, drams, and their ilk exist (in the modern world) merely to amuse. Did you mean to refer to fluid or apothecarian drams?

It should be mentioned, with regard to the intellectually weighty question of p vs n, that there are numerous important factors which I have overlooked as of the present time; perhaps I shall eventually locate my notes from the original occasion at which this was discussed. The purpose of my bringing the topic up in the first place was to encourage the introduction of perplexing, thought-provoking, mind-bending abstract or practical questions, and the concurrent discussion of all, rather than the focus on the rather silly, but, admittedly, timely and relevant, question posed by myself.

-------------Pickwick the Second-------------


while we are at it we should do math problems on the blog lol. nothing too complex high schoolers. i'll start us off. this one is hard btw

there is a dart board consisting of 2 areas one bull's eye and the outer area. the bull's eye is worth 15 points and the outer area is worth 7 points. if u throw a dart at the bull's eye you get 15 points and same with the outer but u get 7 points.
if INFINATE darts are thrown at the board what is the largest FINITE score you can acheive. finite meaning non-infinity. for example u can not achieve 6 because the lowest number you can acheive is 7. niether u can recieve 8,9,10,11 but u can get 14 cuz 2 darts thrown at the 7 is 14. so whats the largest u can't get?

yea it took me and my class 45 minutes but i looked in the answer book before so i knew what it was ;)

o yea as eli said pirates are bad on land and if the ninja weapons hit their eyes they would have no eyes left cuz of their eye patch and the injas will win.
[gtlogo:TMC]


Good Morrow!
Yes, indeed; this is precisely what I had hoped to see!! This is the sort of question that appears on the MMPC scholarship test, and exactly the sort of question I have no idea how to solve. Ideas, anyone? Did it explain in the back of the book, Sravan, or merely provide an answer?

-----Pickwick the Second-----


it gave an explination but i didn't understand it. like there is a formula. i'll give the answer out when other ppl have tried it. here is an easier one.

the pistons are beating the spurs(i wish) 3-2 in the final round of the playoffs in best out of 7. if the probability of the pistons beating the spurs is 3/5 or 60% then what is the probability of the spurs winning the playoffs?

and another

there is a fishtank with 200 fish where 99% are guppies. how many fish need to be taken away to make it 98% guppies?

and an age old question: what came first the chicken or the egg?

eli where are the results and do the ssbm only tournament recruitments count?????

reword your question in the second paragraph you asked what is the largest finit you CAN get.
but at the bottom you asked what is the largest you can't get, basically you are trying to find a number in which 7 is not a factor, duh. The only way i can think of to solve that question is to make a simple program to check every number from 1 to a lot and see if 7 is a factor, I don't want to spend too much time thinking about it so whatever. what couldn't you just set up an arthemetic series, using sigma notation, ... U don;t think there is an answer, the largest you can't get with an infinit number of darts does not exist becauas you have an infinit number of darts. only 1 in seven numbers are a multiple of seven so you just add or subtract one from the greatest multiple of 7 you can think of and get a big number that you can't get with the darts. Since 14 is a multiple of seven 14 does not need to be taken into account. THere is not answer...

by the way your grammar needs work it is: "UI took my class and I" not "it took me and my class." pickwick what is the difference between who and whom?

李 治 學 leaving

Auf Wiedersehen-


whom is accusitive

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


come on your second question is an insult 200 fish 99% guppies that means 198 are guppies. If the guppies taken out of the tank are replaced then all you need to do is remove 2 guppies, and replace those two guppies with other fish.

Due to the poor wording of your question i assume that you are not aware of the fact that if you take 2 guppies away there will no longer be 200 fish...it would be less since you took fish out In that case you cannot break 98% exactly a close estimation would again be 2 guppies. due to rounding, because you cannot have a fraction of a guppie, in the context of the problem.

Pickwick - three questions - what are the dimensions of the field? where are the ninjas and pirates situated in relation to each other, and how fast can the parrots fly?

Oh yeah, and is there a limited range on the weapons of either side? And are we to assume that both sides possess equal intelligence?

edit - "whom" is dative, not accusative. it is generally only used with the prepositions "to" and "for"

"Faulheit ist eine Tugend"
[gtlogo:VMC]


anti snowman u are wrong on all questions. the answer is 83 cuz 15x7-15-7 some weird formula. in the guppy one there are 198 guppies out of the 200 fish so if u take away 100 guppies then there will be 98/100 which is 98%. my wording is fine btw. the pistons one is 4/25 cuz they have to win 2 games and their probability of winning is 2/5 cuz the pistons is 3/5 so 2/5x2/5=4/25.

anyway when are those results coming????

[gtlogo:TMC]


Good Morrow!
Indeed, 'whom' would appear to be the accusative form of the nominative 'who;' when in the nominative form, a word must refer to the subject of the sentence, where the subject is represented by the noun which performs the action described so eloquently by the verb. On the other hand, the accusative form is to be utilised in reference to the noun being affected by the verb, which object is called, rather bluntly, the 'direct object.' An example of the former might read thus: "Who dares to challenge the mighty Pickwick to do battle in Melee?" (Aside, of course, from the estimable TurtlePerson 2, with whom I would greatly enjoy duelling, were he amenable to the idea.) The latter, or accusative, might be used in such a manner: "Whom has Pickwick not yet defeated in said form of combat?", a question to which the answer would, again, be that eminent personage represented by the appellation 'TurtlePerson2.'
There are, of course, many more forms to be learned, one of which is demonstrated within the phrase "with whom," which phrase appears some slight distance prior to this sentence. This is the dative form, and it is used to denote either an indirect object or a noun appearing in a prepositional phrase, such as: "To whom are these challenges addressed?", which is, of course, easily answerable. That sentence uses the dative form for an indirect object, but a prepositional phrase manifests itself when the time or place is described; for instance, "There are many not-so-veiled messages in this post, another of which occurs within the duration of this sentence" contains two prepositional phrases: "in this post," and "within the duration of this sentence."
The fourth form is the genitive case, which denotes a relationship, primarily one of possession, between two objects. Out of the German 2 Textbook: "Auf welche Seite des Buch gibt es?", or "On which page of the book is it?" It may be described much more fully on the Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genitive. There are many, many more grammarical forms, but most do appear in neither English nor German.
According to the website at
www.tiscali.co.uk/reference/ encyclopaedia/hutchinson/m0025905.html - 16k :
The apothecarian dram is commonly defined as being equal to 3 scruples or one eighth of an apothecary's ounce, where 20 grains equal one scruple; three scruples equal one dram; eight drams equal an apothecary's ounce (oz apoth.), and 12 such ounces equal an apothecary's pound (lb apoth.). There are 7,000 grains in one pound avoirdupois (0.454 kg). I hope that was helpful.
Good Day!
--------------Pickwick the Second-------------
Edit: Argh! beaten to it by not one, not two, but three people!! Leinad, I believe the field's measurements were not officially defined, so I shall arbitrarily set them as 6 miles x 7 miles, because I like the number 42. The pirates, who are wearing Reeboks of unspecified size, are located, loosely arranged in a scattered formation, approximately 50 feet from the ninjas, who sport Nike shoes. All members of each side have properly-tied shoelaces. The parrots gain altitude at a speed of two feet per second, and dive at an acceleration of 19.8 feet/second/second, including the force of gravity. The pirates are not accurate with their muskets at a distance greater than thirty feet, and the ninjas cannot maim, wound, incapacitate, or kill beyond the same distance, though they maintain an accuracy of 80%-(total distance in feet). You may safely assume that the ninjas are somewhat more intelligent, as they do not imbibe alcoholic beverages in large quantities as pirates have an unfortunate tendency to do.


pickwick, I am sorry I asked about you about grammar, and pro, i missread your first question, i thought bulls eye was 14. and your second question, i just got wrong

李 治 學 leaving

Auf Wiedersehen-


I looked up whom at answers.com and it said it was objective case. I still think it is accusative. Leinad to/for doesn't neccesarily mean that it is dative.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


TP2 - I didn't say that to or for neccesarily means dative, but it tends to imply that in almost all situations. I still think that whom is dative rather than accusative. I'll ask a teacher on Monday if I remember.

My last post was made in reference to Black Shark's quoting of the god-awful McDonalds theme song, probably in reference to the availability of DS wi-fi @ McDonalds. My theory is that our nation's youth will become even more obese than many of them already are, due to the availability of the underpriced, overfattened, and undernutritioned food offered at your local McDonalds.

And no, one cannot describe the aforementioned "new thread smell". One simply must experience it for oneself.

Mariokart Tourney all ages see who really is the master
all star event Eli will choose or will have voting for each event and the top 16 teams and individuals in each event will compete in thier event.
Mayb you could have a clan tourtament where all the clans come and battle before season 3.
what about a middle school only MarioKart and melee tourtaments only fair since thier have been two netrual zone tourneys and the 13 and up the news didn't get out.
Maybe a no n000bs tourtaments you have to be proven to come. Any comments

HA HA HA HA HA
WOLVERINES 7 and 1
try 6 and 3
U of M lost to Notre dame, minnisota and wisconsin, the worste teams in the nation. That was partially due to the fact that their bestreciever braylon edwards left, because he was a senior, but it was also because steve breason and micheal hart had injuries during the minnisota, notre dame and wisconsin games. Also henne really messed up early in the season, his throws were terrible. It was a series of catatrophes that brought michigan down. I remember that one game against notre dane, 3 times michigan was in the red zone and not a single touchdown. Henne fumbled when he was at the one yard line of notre dame. Rivas messed up on some of his punts and catastophies as such which led to the loss of michigan. However we beat michigan state! and hopefully we will be ohio state. Last year we could have gotten an even higher rank, but ohio state took us out, even though they knew that they did not have a chance at the rose bowl, they were determined to take down michigan. This year the tables are turned and hopefully Michigan will take down OSU.

I don't see why we need middle school only tournaments. Since most people in Ann Arbor middle schools now will be in the Ann Arbor high schools so they will be able to play at the NZ and 13+ tournaments when they get older. The NZ tournaments are the most under attended tournaments. It's mostly people that are at the NZ anyways with nothing to do, only 8-10 people compete in any one tournament. There is virtually no one that goes both to the NZ and to the Library tournaments. The 13+ tournament allowed younger people to compete if you were in the Season tournaments.

It's called the finals in December. Plus next tournament will be mainly Vets. based on the last tournament's turnout.

Good Morrow!
To all those who intend to participate in the traditional festive activities of the succeeding day: Good Luck!
To those who intend to spend the morrow frightening small children: You are horrible, incorrigible people, and I wish I was able to join you in an activity which sounds, if not particularly satisfying to one's conscience, quite fortifying to the constitution and providing of a sense of great fulfillment. Enjoy yourselves nonetheless!!
Good Day!

Ok, I want to make a distinction here. The freighting small children is at Evil bus driver's house. We only scare the kids as they walk though the yard to get to their beloved candy. We do not roam the streets to steal candy from kids. I have come across people that have taken it the wrong way so I feel like clarifying it.

Sravan-AIM
Duck and EBD-probably one of the most rewarding halloween experiences a high schooler can ever have. way to go.

PPL WHO DIDNT UNDERSTAND SRAVAN- he meant Northwestern had a 7-1 record...of course he knows we dont have that good of a record.

everyone else- When you take a tournament off, the next one just seems so incredibly unbearably far away.

Yes, yes it does. Believe me, for Leinad and I, missing the August tournament was horrible. So it was that month, plus all of the other time since the Grands last December. It was unbearable.

I like The Woverines. Rivas kicks, he doesn't punt, and he gives me a heart attack everytime he does any kick, even on a PAT! Stevie and Jason r seniors, but Stevie is a Red Shirt Senior, so he can choose to come back next year. Mike and Chad r Sophmores. I want results! Fix the DLST!

The tournament was more than a week ago. Where are the results?

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


YAY!
One of our most sucssessful nights ever. We scared so many people. The biggest problem was that it rained as sravan had already stated. SPARTAN-014 came out early and helped set up the last few things of the yard haunt. Later, Duck came and him, I, and Nate (SPARTAN-014) had so much fun scaring the crap out of everyone. Of course we had more actors, but you dont know them so they dont matter.
I would just like to thank Ian and Nate for coming out and helping us. Especially with the candy coffin (that was priceless).

Oh yeah Ian K. from the DDR tournaments came by and went though the graveyard.

I don't think Eli or EJk have been on this section of the site for several days. hint still on the wrong time and all.

Good Morrow!
True; I had noticed the erroneous time. It seems likely that they are laboring furiously to verify the results and prepare the new page; either that, or they have completed it but forgotten to post it.
Of what graveyard do you speak? Were there many shrieks of terror involved in your most noble act of frightening small children? Did you by any chance manage to record any such screams, in the event that they were, indeed, extant?
Good Day!

PS: It seems just possible that I won't be at school on November First, as have several hours of homework left and this'll make two most-of-the-nighters in a column. Hold up the fort!


You know, I hate to break it to you guys, but I think Eli and ejk actually have... umm... lives, maybe? They don't exist solely for the purpose of this message board, to serve our every whim.

1) I'm here. The tourney write-ups are Eli's thing, and I'm sure he'll have something up soon.

2) I'm working on a new "aadlgt" page that will combine the chocolatey goodness of the current aadlgt page (player info, registrations, leaderboard) with the peanut buttery satisfaction of listing the recent blog posts. Should be ready in a day or two.

Mmmm, it's like a reese's cup... but more technologically advanced...
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, microchips....

While I was up in the tech services department today, I notified one of Eli's associates that you were requesting a post-tournament thread.

I can't guarantee anything, but they are aware of your interest.
