[color=#000000ost_uid0][quoteost_uid0]Wait a minute. No, you got that wrong. You got 24 points. You should have realised that, because 24 is the inverse of 42, and we all know what that means. Go back and tell them they counted wrong. And after all, who's the math whiz here - you or them?[/quoteost_uid0]
Of course I realized that. Sure, right when I first saw the results. But since [iost_uid0]they[/iost_uid0] are all math profs, who am I to argue with them?

[quoteost_uid0]Seriously, though - they picked the 10 best, and you were only two points away? Meaning the tenth was only 1 point over you?[/quoteost_uid0]
Actually, the 8th, 9th and 10th all got 24 points, which means I would have been at least 10th with the same score, since I got more points in the first round. The other two have exactly the same score, including the first round. (But maybe I'd get to be 8th just because I would have been the only girl in there.)
But that's if I would have had two points more, which I don't.

[quoteost_uid0]If it'd been me, I'd have arranged for those with higher scores to have 'accidents'. Not at all like anything Catbert would do you understand.[/quoteost_uid0]
No of course not. Sadly, some of the winners might not make Greece. They might, say, break an arm, their writing arm of course. But only just a few weeks before they're supposed to leave. There's still plenty of time.

You two have really great ideas... This is not over yet.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I [iost_uid0]still[/iost_uid0] remember the time I lost a three-way tie with my two arch-nemeses at the state meet and slipped to sixth.

Did I mention they only give prizes to the top five in each event?



I do not do well on tiebreakers, in general.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Honestly, if I weren't so nice, I might be seriously offended. Nobody like being called a wannabe by someone they personally know. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Alright, I believe you. But I have a question for you: How can a nice person be so evil?

You [iost_uid0]are[/iost_uid0] still evil, right? [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]What about "Kill them [iost_uid0]all[/iost_uid0]" didn't you understand? You can run, but you can't hide!

[color=#000000ost_uid0]The all part, I suppose.

Neo, let's run!

Meanwhile, I'm going to hide anyway. I'm too tired to run right now.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Ten seconds? What about ten hours?

Wait a minute, how could you have gotten here so fast? It's a long way from Singapore to the Netherlands, you know.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Congratulations, Cat! It sounds like you did a great job -- that can't be diminished by anyone else's scores. (Only universities are dumb enough to grade on a curve.)

Forgive me if this sounds weird, but I'm proud of you. [/colorost_uid0]
