The tree falling clearly causes vibrations in the air, but then you get into the whole debate of whether something exists if no one experiences it.

We were like '....wait, seriously?"
In the same event, we had a whole station on eggs, which included a diagram of an egg where we had to label no less than 10 different parts, identify what a "chalaza" was, and determine which egg in front of us was hard boiled and which was raw without breaking them.
At a different Food Science event, we were given a station with pieces of broccoli. We had to write down observations about the different pieces and guess which one was raw, which had been boiled in water for 3 minutes, and which had been boiled in water for 2 hours with baking soda. It was easy, but weird.
The egg stuff is actually in the rules form the year I did food science.
The boiled/not boiled is based by rolling it on a table to see how the movements work.
I have no idea how to do the egg diagram, but I received that question as well

However, the solution testing page was for testing with biuret's. And she changed it into starch(cause she only had iodine), crossed out things, and added others. And then comes this question she didn't change, and it said "So which item would you recommend to Halle Berry for the most protein content?" or something similar. And we were like WAT? we just tested starch, not protein!
So we randomly guessed.
