Aschultz: don't look if you're not done, but picking Q20 to be E, I worked out:

1D, 2A, 3D, 4B, 5E, 6D, 7D, 8E, 9D, 10A, 11B, 12A, 13D, 14B, 15A, 16D, 17B, 18A, 19B, 20E

you get the same sol'n? or is there a different one for different answers to Q20? it really clicks into place so long as you keep an eye out for the easy ones and the questions that give you subtle but enormous hints.

all the masochism of a real analysis exam with none of the helping me get into grad school if I do well. fuck you, I was going to go to sleep an hour ago!

Bluberry, the author intended there to be a specific answer to #20. It helped the answers form a sentence, which was an allusion to "Fatal Attraction." So you can check for yourself if you got the right answer for #20 :).

Nice job getting through it. Apparently there are even tougher and worse ones. I was pleased I got through it but anything more difficult would probably take too much time to actually be fun.

Best of luck to all captains and participants! Although I've been deemed least likely to be drafted in a few cold remarks, I'm still excited at the remote possibility of ending up on a team. I'll repeat that I will try my hardest for any captain that selects me and guarantee him or her 9 reviews.

THE ORDER IS AS SUCH:

Will / Dagoss / Felix / Boo / EmP / OD / Janus / Suskie

EmP has spoke, thus it is law.

And with that the 2009 Team Tournament Draft has officially begun!!

The order will be found on the first two posts in this topic, in addition to EmP's post. You're on the clock, Will!

Two questions:

1. Jason, as a staff member, is it possible for me to hack into the accounts of others to manipulate their picks?

2. If it is possible, would it be considered unethical for me to do so in order to ensure I get who I want?

plz answer quickly

Not that I'm aware of!

Unethical? You pose a deep question with an answer that isn't entirely obvious, but the answer to the first question fortunately renders it moot.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

While we wait for Will . . .

Anyone interested in swapping picks? I have the #3 and the #14 and wouldn't mind moving down a little.

Let's make it obvious, then. Yes, hacking into people's accounts for personal gain, sabotage, and/or any other inappropriate misconduct is unethical on grounds of invasion of privacy and theft (using the account without permission).

Ah. Well, I'm just boring, aren't I? What a bummer.

Which is why, when I cheat, I simply don't get caught.

I'm gonna be gone for most of tonight, so you people might want to hurry this up lest you find yourselves waiting for me to make my two picks.

I may switch with you Janus, but only if my other alternative falls through. I'll let you know regardless once I know, which should be pretty soon.

Don't think the strikethrough tag works on HG forums, Felix.

So we're waiting for Dagoss now? Great.

Good call, Suskie. I'll make drafted players black as opposed to red from here on out.

Also, I have decided against trading my picks. Turns out I'd rather not fall to #7 and the other option I had has declined to swap.

The strike option seems to work fine. Observe as I prove it.

Yeah! He told me that, too!

Ah well, probably for the best. I have errands that need run if I want things like liquor in the house and food in the belly tonight, so I have to be away from the computer for a bit, anyway.
