I think so. Whoever they are, they beat our Rocks & Minerals genius in that event last year at Nats, and I don't think he's forgiven them yet
They placed in top 10! That's impressive for a bunch of kids that don't go to school together. But then again they have a lot more time on their hands. They don't have to go to school and don't get as much homework. I imagine that some of their parents let them work on SO instead of school on some days.
Presumably. Actually, there's another school in E.L.I. that gets the entire day before States off from classes just to study for their events.
I wish we got that kind of privileges.
Still, we got 2nd at States and they weren't even in the top 10, so that pretty clearly wasn't the deciding factor.
