    Question: What fraction of CollegeBowl questions relate to the biology growth race thing? It seems like that one day of quick information dispersal is going to be a huge fraction of the college bowl points scored over the whole month.

    Time to make some high-risk non-informational market-distorting truth-hiding bets to catch up to sflicht. :)

      There were 23 question for the Dicty World races, so it was fairly high. The trick was finding questions that were engaging and paid off during the contest. This one didn’t get much activity — small overlap between topic experts and forecasters, plus race delays meant the main event didn’t start until 5pm (ET) on a Friday. For some reason most people didn’t hang around to watch amoebas race.
