Y'know, now that you sort of mention it, it would be cool to have an event about "current events" in science, but the more I think about it, the worse the idea becomes. I mean, the idea of it is great and all, but it would probably be run poorly (especially at Regionals) and become more of a trivia contest and everyone would hate it (sort of like Pentathlon: decent idea, bad execution, people start to hate it).

Our imagination is stretched to the utmost, not, as in fiction, to imagine things which are not really there, but just to comprehend those things which are there. ~Richard P Feynman
