As always, the deadline is sorta kinda nominally possibly Saturday at midnight Eastern. I will be at IRI doing scoring, which means two things:
a) You can submit your entry in person if I’m not working (writing it down strongly encouraged), and
b) My ability to judge this week’s contest on Sunday has more variables than usual, including (but not limited to) how late I wake up, wifi availability at the Super 8, where my girlfriend and I pull off for lunch, how exhausted I am when I get back into Columbia that evening some 750 miles later, and the alignment of Dave’s other cars relative to the moon.
Not an entry: Billfred, your spreadsheet shows Akash as having 15 (win/HM/BA) yet he is listed as 13 above, second place. Oh, and good luck on the Condo. Ahh, home ownership, I encourage it - because misery loves company…
OK, here is the entry for this week:
(To the tune of “sometimes when we touch” by Dan Hill, as sung by Rod Stewart):
And sometimes when we touch
the CIMs they’re hot too much
And I just can’t get that battery to charge.
I gotta drive it 'til it dies
When we win we’ll scream on high
I can’t believe it,
we came in first at I R I
After I posted the results, it was brought to my attention that the burn award was omitted. I meant to give it to Akash, but I thought I’d already added it to the post and blindly administered a singleton. The number is correct.
[npoe]So much for being at the top of the list. Oh well… easy come, easy go.[/npoe]
Last year, the IRI coordinators decided to experiment with a new playing surface: lava. After hearing numerous horrible screams (such as those seen here) and seeing permanent skin damage, they knew that it was the worst idea they ever had.
