You have to get the right level of astuteness. Somewhere between "assuming he meant to say cube" and "questioning why we are calling a 13"x13"x11" object a cube."

So all the rules and Q&A responses are written with Marshall in mind, being the reasonably astute reader?

Just astute enough to fit that last quotation mark in there.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 18-1

You youngsters don't know the powers you're messing with.
You should place an offering on the alter of the BEAST immediately, lest your teams suffer some unfortunate consequences.

Karma is a killer, especially when it comes from Hammond, IN.

Mr. Car Nack,
Do not judge all of us FIRSTers based on the insolence of these few heretics.

As you smite thine enemies, please continue to bless the Robowranglers as we iterate in thy name.

We would never violate thy proclamation about 10 cubes on the scale.

The Punxsutawney Phil of CD spoke, now lets see who hears and who listens...
Really wish however that you would follow up post season and explain your reasoning to those of us who value your input.
Same time next year?

This is not possible. This Car Nack must be an imposter, because (s)he is normally infallable. And "written" is more appropriate, more evidence of an imposter.

What is this world coming to?

THIS proves it.... this Car Nack IS an imposter. The real Car Nack would have never made a prediction that wasn't true.

BTW...I have pitchforks and torches for sale, reasonably priced, if you care to go find this imposter
