And the picture:

As always, the deadline is theoretically Saturday at midnight Eastern.


After a good stomping by Mark and Linda, the giant walking stick monster has been defeated

2010 game hint?

After doing lots of math, Mark needed a break.

Mark is doing the math on how many hurdles from 2008 he is doing while he steps

Mark is a rocket scientist. Moments after this picture:

“Look out!”
“Heads up!”
“What just happened??”

Apparently, he’s also a practical joker with the evil genius of one Mr. Dave Lavery. The field crew was not amused when he pointed out that even some real lunar regolith is burned…

Andy Baker, sidelined and wrapping his left foot with ice and duct tape:

"Mark, think nimble. You know, Mark be nimble, Mark be quick - yeah - you got it.

Governor Linda, watch it, don’t cross your feet - you’ll get in a habit of doing that and next thing you know - boom. Those sticks are straight as a ruler and totally unforgiving. That’s where I went wrong."

sigh - I need some more ice for my right foot… trackball surfing was so much easier.

Please sit back and listen to the calm music of the Philipines, a song charished for generations. [Cotton Eye Joe starts] Thats the wrong song!

Mark finds out the hard way that no matter how much math you do, it doesn’t make you any better at dancing.

Tired of getting his shins bashed in by stick-wielding Filipinos, Mark Leon invokes General Douglas MacArthur:

“I SHALL RETURN!..after I go to the hospital and have these giant splinters removed from my legs. Turns out the hospital is in, er, um…Iceland! Yeah, Iceland - that’s the ticket! So don’t wait up for me!”

Mark, thinking: “Do the math, do the math … hmm, math … Let’s see, there’s 4 stripes down there, 8 green stripes at this end, it looks like 6 stripes in the middle … That’s an arithmetic progression, so it must mean that to do this dance you have to progress from the easy to the hard steps … Easy steps, Hard steps! Thats why we do the math!” Copioli, off camera, “What math???”

I guess the Philippines is recruting for the Olympics early

After too many volunteers showed up in Hawaii - no need to wonder why :rolleyes: - we see here the third round of Judges Elimination, courtesy of Team 3105.

Later rounds switched to steel pipes.

The crowd for their part just loved it, enjoying the syncopated “Chuck Berry” beat: “clack-cla-clack (OW) clack clack (OWW!) clackaclack (OW OWW) clack clack…”


The GDC does some preliminary testing of next year’s game design… on humans

Mark…“OK all I have to do is get my foot in there without getting caught. This is easier than stepping around penguins at the south pole. I can do this!”

(This is the first time I have seen a picture of Mark that didn’t have a blur. He is moving all the time.)

The surface of the light side of the moon can reach temperatures of over 120°C. Apparently, someone didn’t realize this when she stepped onto the regolith with her bare feet. Ouch.

music blaring from speakers
“It’s just a jump to the left
And a step to the right!
Put your hands on your hips
And pull your knees in tight!”*

Audience member: “Wait, that doesn’t look like the Tinikling…”

*Or, alternatively, replace with the lyrics found here

now we know why mark was limping a little bit at nationals…

This is not why we do the math.

If you’re looking for Chairman’s Winners
Scout out the Technoticks,

A programmer with an old OI
He’d use a Chicklet

Now every wheel of a bot chassis
Revolves around a shaft
But Tinikling with an old bam-boo
Makes Mark Leon go daft.

Me ol’ bam-boo, me ol’ bam-boo
You’d better never mess with my ol’ bam-boo.
You can have your Red & you can have your Blue
But you’d better never mess with my ol’ bam-boo!

{Video Submission} Everybody sing!
