Yippee! I spent a long time on that one to figure how to make it work with our format. The main problem was that no one was on line at once so I couldn't conduct a real auction, The idea of blind bids was just frustrating enough that I knew it would be fun... at least for me!
>The paintball challenge I suddenly understood after I got eliminated. I will assert though that one of the answers in that challenge was incorrect I think I sent you a pic via PM with a grid superimposed over the solar system image, but hey, I lost fair and square so I can't really complain.
Two problems with that: You probably drew your lines from top to bottom while the first line I drew was horizontally just below the Earth and above Venus to make sure they weren't on the same "orbit". Also, I did tell you that Burnett was drunk when he handed that picture to Jeff. It was just a general guide.

Yes, another frustrating exercise... just like many survivor challenges!

I used the shortcut of switching a few Survivors around instead. I could have sent Survivors on reward together to explain the formation of GIA and FB but I didn't want to spend 3 months writing this.

No, I was asking to identify the coin as lighter or heavier also.

Just like the story reflected, she was in Hatch's position.
