Never wash jeans with whites.

Also, the label isn't kidding when it says, "Tumble dry low".

If you plan to knock on your teammate's door at 2 AM to tell them the topic for next year, you better have pizza.

Rolling gummy bears in sun-melted Hershey's bars does not taste good.

Offense: Failure to adhere to topic.

Reason: You did learn that in the context of a scholastic competition.

I learned that caffeine is a baaaaad thing.

Caffeine is the essence that fuels the dreams of champions (or was that coffee, I can't remember my Will Ferrell movies well)

Especially during class. Otherwise the teacher might glue your feet to the floor with rubber cement, have everyone leave the classroom, and then yell, "FIRE!"

(This is a true story that my Decathlon coach's brother did to one of his students.)

Or they turn off the lights, have everyone leave early, and then set the clock to 9pm. That's always entertaining to do.

If the coffee pot is empty, get another pot brewing, even if you don't drink coffee.

If need to get somewhere you shouldn't be, walk briskly and carry a clipboard. Keep your head down and write continuously. Look slightly annoyed/perturbed.

a small can of red bull and a can of sprite mixes together perfectly in an empty 20 oz coke bottle, making a perfect beverage to drink during the long hours of testing.
red bull makes you good at interviews.
I learned how to study.

I always had a 5 Hour Energy before every competition.

I was energized during the tests, but I probably drove my teammates insane.

Edit: And what I learned from that is... absolutely nothing

Never admit to having a secret alliance with every person but one when you are playing Risk
Actually, never play Risk

False, you need to set aside an entire day, get ten+ people, and multiple boards. Then connect the boards and turn it into a game of Risk:Universe!

My friend and I created this epic game using the Risk board and pieces, along with Monopoly pieces. It was called Domination. It would take us nearly a month to get like a quarter through the game, and then the board always got messed up when we were cleaning our rooms or whatever. But yeah, it was epic.
