11 out of 11, it was a pretty basic "test"

So the state director allegedly knows that numbers are down and doesn't want to do anything to stop it. That's how I read that.

First thank you all for your responses. Secondly, yes the state director is only in charge of wrestling because nobody else that worked for our state league wanted to be in charge of wrestling. We've always had a football guy that was willing to work with wrestling because most of the wrestling coaches also coach football in my state.

But Jesus was also the son of God, and do you really KNOW that Snyder isn't the son of Cael?

I would just like to be the juvenile that says that when I read the subject line, I was afraid that the topic was going to be something very different.

Correct me if I'm wrong (been a few years since I reffed), but I believe that if wrestler B is on his feet with wrestler A hanging on, you can warn him for stalling without stopping the match, and wrestler B can still try to get his escape.

The question that I like to ask is who was the best inventor before Otto Rhowedder. He single-handedly created the invention that is quite figuratively the measuring stick for all inventions since his.

Wrestling / Question about different states
« on: March 02, 2017, 10:36:49 AM »
I thought that I saw somewhere on here a list of how each state determines its team state champion. Our (SC) state director has said (I've only heard this secondhand, and am just going back to my source with information, he can do what he wants with it) that he doesn't want to put too much effort into reworking/improving our state championship tournament because wrestling numbers are in decline, and we're one of only a handful of states that actually holds two state championships (we have a dual tournament or playoffs for team championships, and individual tournament for individual champions) for wrestling.  I've finished the research for the number of participants line, and I thought that many states had a dual tournament team championship for wrestling.

Any help would be appreciated.

In all honesty if I really thought that I had a chance at getting beachfront property (I live well over 100 miles from the Atlantic) simply by throwing my empty worn out cardboard boxes in the regular trash instead or the recycling bin ... I'd do it in a heartbeat, sell to the first decent bidder, and move like lightning to the highest mountains I can find cause we'd all be in serious trouble.

I've also heard that methane and other gasses cause tons of CO2 issues, and wondered if we could fix it by stopping with all of this vegetable eating, and just eat all of the animals that we can as fast as we can. While it may not be a good long-term solution, can you imagine how awesome it would be "saving the planet" by eating steak, with a side of chicken and bbq instead of veggies/beans, and whatnot cause "you care"

I've been purposely throwing away recyclables in the regular trash, driving an SUV around the block by myself for no discernible purpose, and burning almost anything in my backyard for years in hopes that the oceans would rise enough to give me beachfront property for years with no noticeable improvement whatsoever in getting the atlantic any closer to my house.
In fact, it takes our family just as long to get to the darn beach as it did when I was just a little tyke.

At some point, I'm going to believe that I was lied to all through middle and high school, and all of my hard work has been for nothing.

I really like taking the "traditional" conclusions from one side in these debates, and using the "traditional" other sides reasons behind it, if for no other reason than for the intellectual exercise, and the bafflement/confusion of the other people.

For instance, I like to take a fundamentalist christian argument to show why evolution has to exist.   I also like to take the conclusion that global warming is manmade, and use it as an argument against recycling, reducing, and reusing (and all that jazz). I also like to take the stance that global warming isn't man made, but naturally occurring, and then make a case for why we need to reduce, reuse, recycle (and all that jazz too).

I also am perfectly willing to accept the fact that I am a societal oddball.

I don't really have arguments for all of those topics however, and didn't even realize that some of them were actually debated.
How old were you when you realized you're a serial killer?

 I can't be a serial killer until I actually carry out more than one/two murders, right?

However,  I think it was around my second week of teaching high school that I realized that I'd never be able to do what other people's thought made me want to do to them, and I'd just have to patiently get my point across in very different ways.
