Meh ...

I took the liberty of transforming S Dog's post into a translatable structure.

Rectionaries could be a contraction of rectory and dictionary which is kind of strange in a priest/alter boy sort of way.

One member has had to regrettably pull from the tournament, so I've extended an invite to the first member on our waiting list. Our final list will be updated once all are confirmed! If you are a member on the waiting list, please keep checking back in case a seat becomes available to you!

COUNT ME IN!

High time for me to express what I really have hidden inside my over sized cranium.

Break out the Mental Octagon for me.

(edit...)

Just saw that spaces are filled?

Siiiiiigh

How can I be here every day and always miss this.... Anyway, if a space opens I would really like IN if possible

  • 1st Round will have 6 byes and 10 debates with 20 participants.
  • 2nd Round will have 8 debates with 16 participants.
  • 3rd Round will have 4 debates with 8 participants.
  • 4th Round will have 2 debates with 4 participants.
  • 5th Round will have 1 debate with 2 participants and a Champion will be declared!


  • Hey chissler,

    I just did a quick count and I think you have mismathematized (tm pending) the first round, as right now there are 9 matches with 18 participants. That would give you 9 winners + 6 byes = 15 which obviously doesn't work.

    So I think you might have to include souls and GUNS as byes so that there are 8 "bye" winners meeting those 8 with byes for a total of 16 in the second round. Either that or add two more contestants to the first round from the waiting list, so that there are 10 winners meeting the six who have 1st round byes.

    That would be a First Class Protocol.

    Aye, good catch.

    Bad news is, I made a mistake with the numbers. Good news is.. the number supposed to be 26! So two more members will be contacted shortly to notify them of their acceptance into the tournament. With 26, my numbers work.

    Dear Mr. Dog,

    The trademark of the term "mismathematized (tm pending)" has been reviewed by the "Internationalistic Committee of Wordage."

    While we would like to accept the term we can't decide if it should be categorized as a schrodingeristic verb form, or a dogistic one.

    Any suggestification you can offer to help resolve this conflictation of considerationalisms would be a received as a highly goodified contributational effort, on your part, and would go far towards adding your term into our "Big Book of Words" (we still can't imaginate a good term for that)

    PS. Your check bounced.
