It’s that time again where I make random requests of all my family and friends and run around like a crazy person and end up creating lots of crazy things and have a lot of fun. This year I was part of the amazing team Felix Fandomis.
Big thanks to Dave for all the hard work with this one!
86 – VIDEO. Write a computer program that randomly generates Gishwhes mascots. – Fran and Sarah Stewart
Big thanks to Ben for helping with this
73 – VIDEO. Who would’ve known the gishwhes mascots were such amazing water-skiers or wake-boarders! Pick your favorite mascot, and prove it.
167 – VIDEO. Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking recently signed a letter expressing their fear of robots. Let’s show them a robot performing an act of kindness. Tweet the video to Elon @elonmusk or post the video on Stephen Hawking’s FB pagehttps://www.facebook.com/stephenhawking. Include #robotkindness and @gishwhes in the post. Submit a link to the video to us, but you must post the video to either of them for the points to count
187 – VIDEO. Writer Elizabeth Meriwether describes a game called “Frolic” she and friends played while driving through Scotland. Anyone could yell out “Frolic!” at any time and they’d pull over the car and run up and down the hills. Inspired by her, host your own “Medieval Booty-Shake!” road trip in Scotland. Film a video of you and your friends, pulling over at any castle in the country, jumping out of the car, yelling that phrase, and doing just that. We must see the castle in the background. You can time-lapse if you wish but we must hear the phrase.
133 – VIDEO. This is a real Welsh word: “Llanfaurpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.” Find a Welsh person and have them say in Welsh “I am Welsh and I hate that I have to do this,” and then they must say the lengthy word 3 times, without stuttering and without reading it.
Thank you Beverley for helping with this.
And lastly the item that landed me in hot water
31 – IMAGE. At the time I’m writing this, the price of crude oil is $48 per barrel. A barrel of oil is 42 gallons. So presumably for about $1.14, you should be able to get a gallon of crude oil. Let’s see you handing $1.14 (or your country’s currency equivalent) to an employee of an oil refinery, oil transportation or oil extraction company while they hand you one gallon of crude oil.
I had an amazing time this year, all our submissions can be found here! (In process of all being uploaded so may take time for all the items to be listed), or if you want to see the list have a look and see what you would of come up with.
