He swears it’s for science. The rest of us think he likes taking pictures of his ears (fortunately for you, dear reader, we’ve blocked him from actually posting those pictures all but one time).

The championship round took place February 9 – February 11 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois, where over $70,000 in cash and prizes were awarded.
