NOTE ON SCORING. After Brendan jumped on, I didn’t let him know how scoring changes week to week. Since I couldn’t catch him as I was tabulating scores, I decided the three of us would maintain 3-3-3 medals this time and we’ll go to 2–2-3 as scheduled next time with 14 people left.

Three out of three judges agree: this was a good challenge. Not to say there weren’t issues to tackle, but all in all, it was an extremely enjoyable week, with some new and old faces scoring big.

Also, and this is big for me, I didn’t correctly figure out a single writer this week (even erik, who I pick out at about an 85% rate). This is VERY rare, and suggests that many of you worked in new spaces and with new ideas. Nobody died in Shawn’s story, for instance.

Here you go.
