It is Possible to Win Without Winning

Well, I competed at a debate tournament on Saturday. Prelims passed by nicely, and I broke into the Super Session of Student Congress, with 15 people and myself going for the top. Pretty much... I mostly dominated. I made 3 speeches about 2 bills, and most people in the chamber were telling me that I had won.

So, naturally, I got 2nd place.

I was pretty frustrated - in my event, you can get ranked from 1-9, with 1 being the best and 9 being not-ranked. There were three judges, who gave me the ranks of 1, 1 and 9, respectively.

I will kill the third judge.

That is all.
