    "Well humans, the round is over, eh! Allow me to congratulate MegaJediRafa for moving up to third place. And it looks like the battle for first place is hot, with Lucidus and Rao battling it out with only one point difference. Not bad, ah! However, if I were you I would not get cocky, heh! For there are many power hungry fellows among you, eh?"

    "Speaking of power hungry, it's time for DarthKurt and Roman to get down here, ah! You will be On the Spot for the next round, heh. So please post your answer as soon as possible or you will look like a complete fool before the rest of you, eh! You will find the question that needs to be answered below, and I will secretly reveal the correct answer to one of you shortly. The rest of you can vote once the answers are out, heh?"

    It was the Yayoi who came from northern China in the 3rd century BC. They brought with them agriculture, the working of bronze and iron, and a new religion which would eventually develop into Shinto.

    Mutual funds, the gold mine of few, the bane of many. Nowadays mutual funds are a vital part of the investment world and a handy tool for those looking for a safe, medium, or risky investment.

    The first company to come up with this innovation was the Manhattan Trust Board, established circa 1922 in New York City. It flowered and grew in the good years of the 20's, to then be shook hard throughout the Great Depression, to grow once again when World War II hit Europe.

    Today the company still manages to surf the up and down waves of the market, and it's known as Manhattan Chase.

    The tapajos river is located in Mexico. It is a tributary of Rio Bravo wich is one of the longest in that region. Sadly it is contaminated by Pemex oil.

    * SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM FATTO *

    [face_shocked] THIS JUST IN! [face_shocked]

    I just received a message from Fatto about some new developments and details about the game. He specifically told me not to tell you guys, especially about the last part, but what the heck, I feel friendly today. ;)

    * Fatto tells me that the game will be ending on Friday, December 19th (at the end of Round 15).

    * He also tells me there will be a prize for the winner (that's whoever has the highest score at the end of the game). He didn't tell me exactly what the prize is, and knowing him it'll probably be some worthless pile of Bantha poodoo, but hey, you never know!

    People, there are only three rounds left. So stay in the game, and good luck to you all!

    Jan_Solo out. :D

    More news from Fatto...

    There has been a time extension for the current round. A new round will begin next Monday (that's Dec. 8th). Remember, players who are On the Spot and who fail to comply with a deadline will experience a penalty of 2 points.

    You know who you are. 8-}

    "It is my great pleasure to announce that I will be stealing points from Spike_Spiegel for not complying with the rules of the game, heh-heh! This chance does not come often to a simple Toydarian game show host like myself. Then again, how many Toydarian game show hosts are out there, ah?! But let's focus on the game now. Lucidus still has the lead in the game. But Rao, MegaJediRafa, and Roman are not very far behind. Exciting, ah?! What will happen in these last two rounds? We will just have to wait and see, heh."

    "Well. We are now two (that's 2 for you calculating math-dudes) rounds away from the end of the game, eh! And yes, like that fool Jan_Solo pointed out, there will be a price for the winner of the game. I am still debating whether or not any of you deserves such a prize, though, heh! But promises are promises, ah! So yes, there is a prize."

    "Speaking of promises, let's announce the players who are next, eh? Lucidus and Rao, get down here, ah! You will be On the Spot for the next round, heh. So please post your answer as soon as possible or you will look like a complete fool before the rest of you, eh! You will find the question that needs to be answered below, and I will secretly reveal the correct answer to one of you shortly. The rest of you can vote once the answers are out, heh?"
