Probably knock out Comp. Science since it's too new and you'll get some ******* drafting Bill Gates/Steve Jobs and trying to pass it off as solid.

Simple is probably better. 20 teams, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Math, Medicine would probably be the best.

I just smelled a restaurant grease dumpster that is 99% full and has been sitting in a parking lot for the last three 100* days.

Group comp sci and stats together or into math imo

and ignoring geology completely is mean, have an earth science category that includes meteorology and hydrology.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Problem with including something like Astronomy is that you will have a ton of Astro-physics stuff. Might have to lump them together under the physics umbrella.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

categories should be:
Physics/Astronomy
Chemistry
Biology (incl zoology and botany)
Math/Statistics
Earth Science (geology, atmospheric science, hydrology)
Medicine

plus 2 or 3 flex positions.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

It could be duel-based or could just be based off the importance of the character to the series. Both could be interesting (obv someone like Hagrid for example would have little merit in a duel but would be worth much more judged on his involvement in the plot)

Do Fred and George Weasley come as a package or do they have to be drafted separately?

though is there a top medicine pick available? Salk comes to mind but that seems narrow. Also, Euclid?

Theres tons.

Hippocrates (father of medicine), William Harvey (first major work in anatomy), Edward Jenner (essentially created smallpox vaccine in 1796), Joseph Lister (figured out surgical room needed to be clean - lol), Fleming (penicillin), Salk (polio vaccine).

I'd go with hippocrates.
