Today, I was doing a science presentation about glucose. There was around 20 judges at the event who could've judged me, but instead I got judged by the only person in the whole entire world who doesn't know what glucose is and doesn't think it exists. FML

You could probably complain about the judge, explain the situation and ask for another one. It's worth a shot.

How can someone judging science presentations possibly not know what glucose is?

You could have tried sweet talking him.

Judges are meant to determine just how well you know the subject matter, and if you can convey the information in an accurate and easy to understand way to a person who has no idea what you're talking about. It doesn't matter if he already knew what glucose is; the point is that he's playing a part and judging how well the OP can inform him. This is probably a middle or high school presentation, and is designed to enhance presentation skills. The judge was actually doing his job. Source: Have judged and been judged for similar events.

#25, You're right. When I went to districts science fair, the judges there pretended they didnt know what the rocks were (I was doing a thing with rocks and acid). They're supposed to make you feel like you're presenting it to a crowd of people, not just a professional judge.

It's like getting a football coach to judge figure skating

That wouldn't have worked. Sweet things just end up as glucose

That's not very fair OP

Well in life, you have to understand that not many people care, making it unfair most of the time.

Who doesn't know what glucose is??

They probably knew, but they might have been trying to see how well the information can be presented.

Exactly what I was thinking. There's no way a judge in a legitimate science competition didn't know what glucose was. They were probably seeing if OP could explain it to some one who has no idea what it is and doesn't have any science background.

how could he be a judge if he doesn't know this? was he a last minute replacement?

Or as part of his job to judge, pretend to not know, to see how well the person knows the subject matter

That seems a little fucked up. FYL

85%?! That's a massive chunk of your grade for just one presentation on glucose.

I'd complain about that

maybe that guy was playing around with u....how can he be a judge for a science presentation and not know abt glucose

agreed, maybe he expecting your presentation to include what it is?

Maybe you didn't sweet talk the judge enough? Sometimes things are better received with a little sugar coating.

was... was that a glucose joke?

Yes, but it didn't seem fructose.

i love both of you

I'd have thrown a jar of glucose at the bastard
