    All because of a golf tournament at a club where only men can be members. :mad:

    Okay, off my soapbox for now. :shuffle:

    Beautiful building! My optometrist's office is in there, although you can't see it in this shot. Of course, it doesn't look exactly like that every day.

    Interesting to see which other teams made it to the wedding!

    HAHA! This arguement happened the first season "How could I bump into you if I was in front of you."

    The amazing race is repeating itself!

    So on the courtship thing, all you have to do is jump for a minute? Why would anyone do the throwing thingy? What did I miss?

    Yeah that's what I was wondering.

    :rofl: at one of the redneck guys grinning and jumping, blowing kisses as they left.

    The instructions must not mention it is only a minute. They showed the clue, but I can't freeze my screen, so I wasn't sure if the full description were shown to us.

    Phil made it sound like "altitude" would make it tough- but wouldn't that make the throwing tough too.

    Also- Vanessa on the bike is cracking me up. Anyone else I would feel bad, but I do not like her.

    Phil tweeted that it was hard jumping at that altitude. I'd still pick it over the throwing though.

    Glad to be in Canada this week where CTV aired the episode on time. :)

    Tanzania was gorgeous btw!

    Rachel was singing/shouting while she was jumping. If it was THAT hard, she wouldn't have been able to do that.

    Perceived exertion tests always do sing/long conversation/short conversation/talking/short of breath/barely breathe/out of breath.

    The way they were all finishing it, I wouldn't even put it in the middle of that spectrum.

    Listening to the federal agents whine about how weak they are because they are just women is ridiculous. Do you not need any sort of physical training to be in law enforcement?

    I would have done the same thing as those federal agent girls. It's not so often that you'd see elephants in the wild. I would have stopped knowing I was in last place. What's there to loose but to see wild elephants!

    It feels like it's been for-frickin-ever since we've had a new episode, so I was super glad for tonight's episode. The fact that it was in Africa was an added bonus. Every time they go there it makes me want to go back :swoon:

    Airport drama... different than the 'scheming' drama from the early seasons... this was just hilarious to watch :rofl: I loved Rachel's faces with each insult Vanessa doled out. If I was traveling through Nairobi at that time I would have grabbed a seat and :watch: had myself a great afternoon watching all of that.

    Jumping for 1 minute? :rolleyes: I know it's at altitude, but if Pukey could make it through, everyone could.

    I figured it was NEL once they had them constructing a tent in which they'd sleep in for the night. That looked like a super complicated set up.

    Thoughts:

    -Airport drama wasn't as bad as I thought it would be
    -LadyGents STILL won't admit they are...you know LadyGents?? Come on!!
    -When Jamie told us her "I accidentally shot my leg and Nary was with me the whole time" story, I knew they were toast (and since they were my pick for this week, I almost panicked).
    -Detour: I'd choose Courtship ANY day. I'm very bouncy (some people say)...wait, that didn't come out right
    -I knew it was a non-elim as soon as they were told to build a tent
    -Mark's "Don't fart on me Bop" had me :rofl: for a while. Still does :rofl:
    -What else? Oh, Tanzania is gorgeous.

    For next week: I wonder which team(s) will be double U-turned?? Brenchel Rachel said "shocker" in a sarcastic tone which could mean:
    a) THEY were U-turned by another team (which could be anyone, since they don't seem to get along with anyone), or
    b) they U-TURN another team...that team being Ralph and Vanessa (because they hate them).
    We'll see what happens :)

    To be fair, they never said they were "weak" and they didn't look weak. But, it did help to have both height and upper body strength in that task. And, realistically, most of the other teams did have at least one guy who had that advantage.

    I'm glad it was a NEL leg because there are other teams I'd prefer to see go before the "teachers."

    I fecking hate Angel - she is just a vile person. Thank you TAR editors for giving me the schaudenfreude I so desperately needed with the endless bike crashes :lol:

    Of course, I despise AJ and Whatsisname too, and there's two of them so maybe I hate them twice as much.

    Pretty obvious this was going to be an NEL, so I'm kinda glad it wasn't Angel saved. But dayum the She-Feds make me :yikes: I'm glad they stopped to watch the elephants though. What an incredible moment :cool:

    I wish Mark and Bopper had had their shower together. It would have been nice to have a new team come in first.

    Since we watched Dr. Gates' latest Genelogy series on PBS, and I'd missed fifteen minutes due to my sister and bil leaving after Easter Supper, I decided to catch tonight on HD in the rec room on Seattle CBS and...

    So very glad I did. Tanzania is one drop dead gorgeous piece of this planet. Count another who would have also stopped to see the elephants. Good for them!! I also didn't get any "whining" from them when putting up the tent and shower. Just stating the obvious that due to the other teams all having at least one guy, they had a wee bit of an easier time of getting the thing up.

    Still loving Mark and Bopper and the "Don't fart Bop!!" line nearly had me falling out of the chair I was LOL so hard. Loved them at the Courtship thing and they were just so into it, couldn't help but grin watching them. Also for someone who has Slavery just a couple of generations back in their Family History, I can't even imagine what being able to just go to any part of Africa period, would mean to that person. What a really special moment for the both of them.

    Is it just me or does there seem to be more teams to not cheer for in the home stretch this go round than in previous Seasons past?
