Ok, this is the first ever SciContest. The rules: entry is free. Anyone can participate. No trolling unless it's good, and I reserve the right to judge "good" in a completely arbitrary way. Serious entries are welcomed. The best entry will win a USD$25 gift certificate to Amazon.com, courtesy of me. This means you will have to send me some contact details, but it's ok you can trust me. The contest is over when I say it is, but I will give some notice (say...a week?) before I close the nominations. To prevent overkill, I will accept three entries per person. No sock puppets. New Rule: If you can poke holes in someone else's reason, then you should! Of course, someone else can poke holes in YOUR reson, as well. Finally, the winning entry should be scientifically correct, and it should be phrased in such a way that everyone can understand. If you are a scientist, then you should explain things on the level that laypeople can understand. This is not to say that laypeople cannot enter, and (truth be told) my hope is that a layperson actually wins. If you are an amature, try not to confuse me! The judges will be me, and JamesR (even though he has no idea about this) and one other person who's not a moderator, and who will be chosen in a thread in "About the Members". Ok, here goes. Keep it clean! Matter cannot be made of photons. Why?
