The Moth: Science Fair Cheater

I told a story about cheating in my high school science fair and unintentionally doing well.

I placed second on the evening, losing by a tenth of a point to Moth legend Steve Zimmer. It was the second StorySLAM in a row that I had lost by a tenth of a point to Zimmer.
