ATTENTION WUSTL - YOUR BUZZER IS OURS

Postby The 2007 San Diego Padres » Thu Jun 28, 2012 1:50 am

YOU CANNOT DETERMINE OUR IDENTITIES

WE HAVE CLEVERLY DISGUISED OUR FACES TO REMOVE ALL DISTINGUISHING MARKS

WE COULD BE ANYONE

Image

The control unit to your Anderson buzzer was left behind at ACF Nationals, and WE HAVE KIDNAPPED IT!

Image

Image

Image

As you can see, it is impossible for you to determine where your buzzer is! Meet our demands or suffer the consequences!

Image

Image

Cower before our total disguising of our identities! You will never know who has your buzzer!

Image

Your buzzer is in grave danger if we do not receive the ransom!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Do not try to track us down! We are impossible to find!

Image

With ninja-like stealth we strike anonymously, capturing buzzers!

Image

Image

Are we your own friends or neighbors? Are we Chicago, Maryland, or Yale? You will never know!

Image

Image

Image

As you can see, your buzzer is being kept in the most comfortable accommodations--FOR NOW.

Image

Image

Image

Image\

OUR LOCATION IS UNDISCOVERABLE.

Image

IT IS LIKE THE UNUNTIABLE TWINE EXCEPT INSTEAD OF UNTIABILITY THE ATTRIBUTE IN QUESTION IS DISCOVERABILITY.

Image

Image

There is not a shadow of a doubt that this buzzer is in our possession!

Image
Image

If our demands are not meant, I promise you that your buzzer will achieve quizbowl infamy when it is put in the cannon.

Image

Knock, knock! We tried finding our ransom here but no one answered.

Image

Image

To prove we still have your buzzer alive and well, here is a picture of your buzzer with today's newspaper and a dime for scale.

Image

Image

You can move heaven and earth, but you will not get your buzzer back unless you pay!

Image

As you can see, our identity is masterfully hidden and we have access to global transportation networks that we may use to evade the arm of the law.

I hope you have seen the futility of trying to determine where your buzzer is, when it could obviously be in any city in America!

OUR DEMANDS FOR THE SAFE RETURN OF YOUR BUZZER ARE AS FOLLOWS:
*The WUSTL team's shipping address
*$10 to cover the cost of shipping

WE WILL NOT COMPROMISE ON THESE DEMANDS! WE ARE DANGEROUS MEN!

Charles Hang should post the Liam Neeson monologue from Taken in response.

I figured it out after the sixth picture, but I am still glad that I scrolled all the way through this thread.

The first picture had a landmark that was featured on one of Andrew Sullivan's View From Your Window weekly competitions, the only one of his (thus far) that I was able to identify.

I did not know that 巴士 was another word for bus. I suppose learning that makes not figuring out what this totally mysterious and clearly obscure location is with its thoroughly anonymous quizbowl kidnappers okay.

Eh, they can be incredibly frustrating when the shitty clear button sticks and refuses to work properly. Otherwise they're great though!

In response to your nefarious demands, there's nothing I can do except agree to your exorbitant ransom demands. Whoever has our control box should email me at charleshang228@yahoo.com so we can arrange shipping.

Like I said, could whoever has our buzzer control box email or message me? I can start emailing people I identify in the pictures, but I doubt the nine people who'd be getting superfluous emails just so I can reach the right person would want that. Since I have the rest of WUSTL's sets, prompt contact would be appreciated.
