Please ignore this blog.

22Jul07

It’s been accurately brought to our attention that our blog has become incomprehensible to the world outside of the Ravenchase Great America Race. With a day of non-racing under our belts, we recognize that the level of inside jokes and references made in the blog have reached levels beyond which anyone could possibly understand.

Spending 8 days in an RV, traveling 1500 miles, and getting very little sleep, while trying to solve mind bending puzzles is bound to do this to anyone. Needless to say, we all got a little slaphappy by the end of the race. Keep in mind that all the people participating in this race, are, by definition, complete geeks. This leads to a lot of inside jokes, which often have roots in things that only super-geeks like us would have understood to begin with.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of all the things you should ignore while reading the blog. These include, but probably aren’t limited to these references:

  • Sabotage by other teams
  • The Goddesh of Richmond
  • Where’s the Fellowship?
  • Leeroy Jenkins
  • All your base are belong to us.
  • Wiberty or Death
  • Voltron
  • Somebody set us up the bomb.
  • Oh Belvedere! Come here, boy!
  • For Great Justice
  • Ninjas
  • Russian Dancers
  • Alien Fashion Designers
  • Cat Patrols

To ignore these things, you might need to jump ahead a few posts. The posts from earlier in the week contain fewer inside references, and more real blogging.

Hopefully this helps.

PS – All Your Base really does belong to us.

  1. What you say !!

  2. OK, thanks for allowing mey to live this vicarously. It was GREAT. From this blog I was able to
    find Lazlo (Obviously) Fellowship of the VAN and Stillwater. So I’ve been telling my family
    about this. Who knows, we may be signing up for some Ravenchase event in the future. And
    the inside jokes were very well chosen, though I was surprised there wasnt anything about
    launching all ZIG.

    As they say — thanks for sharing!

  3. 3 Voltron

    Oh do they now?
