<HenryGorman>: they zero a bonus
<HenryGorman>: Alex tens a lit tossup
<HenryGorman>: and they twenty the bonus
<HenryGorman>: close now
<HenryGorman>: Arnav gets a science tossup
<HenryGorman>: Score-check going into the final tossup:
<HenryGorman>: SJS: 290, LASA Bethe 275
<HenryGorman>: Arnav, complaining about the stress of the situation: "I could be on reddit right now"
<HenryGorman>: Claire negs
<HenryGorman>: Ben picks it up
<stats>: there's nothing great on reddit right now...
