the quiz tournament

Woah...what a day! Those hour-long naps on the Yokosuka Line...I mean, the 24th Annual High School Quiz Tournament! This plan started out as a joke in this particular day in June.
Someone "Hey, let's apply to the quiz tournament!"
Me "(Laughing) Yeah, okay!"
This easy response made my me, has brought Kai, Tomotaka and I to Tokyo Dome today. Well, actually three more people, who were Subaru, Soma and Mina "joined" us later on. What kind ofcombinations are we? lol

As we've expected, the questions given were quite difficult. First two problems were given to us at the same time.
The first OX question was
"Japanese nationals are able to work in the White House, in the States.".
The second question was
"Succesive Japanese PMs and American Presidents are most likely the eldest son of his family.".

From some of the definitions written on the "Koujien", our teams concluded that the answer to the second problem was an X. The tougher problem for us was the first one, and we used us most of our time on that by searching, calling, and looking up. From our knowledge of the American social background, we've concluded that it also was an X. When we reached the gate for the X selecters, we couldn't sight any of the famous "Quiz Club" members, which lost our confidence.

As a result, we're able to enjoy the long event prior to the answer, and our answer to the first question was correct. Everyone on the X side, including us screamed with joy. But right after the answer to the first question was announced, they announced the answer to the second question...which was an O. Darn! At least we were able to enjoy the event, and collect the video footages we are going to use for the ethics assignment.

After we retired the quiz tournament, we all went to the batting center nearby, and had a little fun there. Everyone batted at least once, and enjoyed pitching or tennis-ing for the second time. Today, as a whole was a great day. It turned out that this week is one of the most busiest week of the summer holidays. Tomorrow, we've booked the editing machine in school. I'm going to have to wake up at 6:00....darn. lol
