  1. I bet Nyquist would have something to say about this.
  2. Can someone who is attending through the 5th week please PM me? Thanks.
  3. this may be an issue of extratopicality, we'll have to see how the resolution plays out at camps/beginning of the season.
  4. MLK didn't advocate total non-violence. He believed in self-defense. In 1959, the annual convention of the NAACP resolved, "we do not deny but reaffirm the right of individual and collective self-defense against unlawful assaults." King supported the resolution, explaining that violence "exercised in self-defense" was "moral and legal" everywhere. King pointed out that even Gandhi did not condemn self-defense. Ghandi didn't advocate total non-violence either, but even if he did, british withdrawal as a result of Ghandi precipitated more violence. As for your other examples, I have no idea who they are. Maybe that is just me being ignorant. As for when Violence has been successful, there are a plethora of examples. Violence led to American independence, Greek independence, and Swiss independence. It also kept the US united and then freed the slaves. Violence prevented Napoleon from becoming dictator of Europe, and prevented Hitler and Hirohito from becoming dictators of Eurasia. The threat of violence, including nuclear violence, deterred Stalin and the Soviets from conquering Western Europe. Violence ended the Holocaust, established the modern state of Israel, and stopped the Arabs from driving the Jews into the sea in 1948 and 1967. Violence removed the Ceausescu communist dictatorship in Rumania. Violence removed Afghanistan as a secure training base for worldwide terrorists in 2001. Violence kept terrorists from crashing United Airlines flight 93 into Washington, D.C. Not to mention Violence subdued the Virginia Tech shooter.
  5. Sure there are, but the September date is the only one that would allow you to take it, see your score, then send it to a school you are applying early admissions to.
  6. I noticed that the ACT falls again on the weekend of Greenhill/Wake Forest, assuming they are the same weekend this year. I was wondering if any accomodations will be made this year to allow people to take the ACT as well. I know in years past rounds have started later at tournaments like EGR to allow people to take the test at local testing facilities. Just wanted to see what was up. Thanks.

    Afrika v. Africa

    nietzsche k

    nietzsche, he's so hott right now
  11. i dont see why you need 3 cards saying you result in an increase in the # of persons serving.
  12. seasoned? What are you talking about? You act like he is a piece of meat. I think Rubaie is just as "peppered" in debating the K, or debating anything for that matter. If you're banking on a uniqueness claim against the child soldiers claim then you're probably not going to win a substantial risk of solvency because just because child soldiers exist now doesn't mean that you don't (a) at worst increase them or ( at best, continue them which is a reason why you don't solve for this "violent social order"
  13. Plus funding was just appropriated for nuclear submarines so argument that "subs are on the chopping block" is not true. http://www.theday.com/re.aspx?re=486356f2-1fb8-4bc6-abfa-4e9b12be8d6c
  14. The non-citizens have always been the best in mortal combat. The Asian dude Liu Kang's bicycle kick is sick and I'm pretty sure Subzero isn't from the U.S.
  15. Another common question--do either of these teams offer much in terms of $? Unfortunately, I don't know the answer. Just thought I'd get the question out there.
  16. I'll be in Scholars for the last 2 weeks. Danny Mapes Shawnee Mission East 1A/2N I'm into whatever.
  17. We'll disclose after this weekend.

    The irony of "ToC Champ" being condescending to Stephen is startling.
  19. I've read before that we conduct our tests underground now. Is this what you're referring to with the "subcritical" or is that something different?
  20. Violence prevented terrorists from crashing United Airlines Flight 93 into Washington D.C. Can you give me an example of effective, pure nonviolence in the past 50 years in the U.S.?
