Fact

The Google searches I did after posting indicated weight loss from mint, not weight gain. *sigh*

I suspect that's not really true either, but does sound a bit more plausible. What I've read is that motivation, not any particular food or diet style, is the biggest factor in weight loss.

Thursday, December 31
Your shoe size increases during the course of the day.


By the late afternoon or night, the average person's foot volume increases. For the best fit, only shop for shoes in the afternoon or at night!

Thanks to everyone for playing this past year.  Here are the final scores/standings for 2015.
I will host this game for only one more year. If people want it to keep it going in 2017, someone else will need to step up to host it.

I'll do it in 2017.

Thanks, unixTechie, for doing this, and for agreeing to do it for another year.

And I see that for this year there's a new thread. Goodbye to this old thread.

I'll do it in 2017.

Thanks - If you want it, remind me next November/December, and I'll send you a blank scoring spreadsheet for 2017.
