    So true. I hope you know I was kidding!

    If we take that science teacher's approach, heck, each of us has a 50% chance. Not bad odds..

    Haha I guess what I really meant was, it's a great number for Greg. I forgot about the 3 script limit. I guess that makes me even more surprised at the high number of entries.

    As someone has mentioned, the online submission system has probably helped push those numbers. Glad Nicholl has finally got one set up. Hard-copy contest submission was sooo 2006.

    Oh, well. There's always next year.
    Yeah, I am afraid to reread my script for just that reason. I'm going to do it anyway, though. Argh.

    will be interesting to see the total numbers this year with that relatively easy uploading process...

    There was a very funny episode of The Daily Show last week in which "correspondent" John Oliver interviewed a high school science teacher who believes a physicist's experiments that involve recreating (in some way) the conditions of the Big Bang will result in creating a black hole that will swallow up the earth. The high school science teacher said, there's a 50/50 chance of it happening...because either it will happen, or it won't.

    John Oliver said, "I don't think that's how probability works..."

    If we take that science teacher's approach, heck, each of us has a 50% chance. Not bad odds...

    I entered three scripts pretty close to the deadline. Good luck DDers!!

    Are they going to announce the QFs soon? It seems like it's been forever...
