  • [Game] 186th FSC (Nov. 2022) - St. John's (Newfoundland), Canada - (RESULTS)

    How ya gettin' on? Hopefully, best kind? Good!
    Welcome back to Canada!


    We're back in Canada for the seventh time overall and second time this year. We started 2022 in the Yukon and now we've returned to the complete opposite side of the country to be in Newfoundland! We are here courtesy to a rather bewitching song that got crowned on Halloween: Unusually, we're going to stick to North America for another month, but unless you include Greenland, we're about as close to Europe as you can get. We're in the island of Newfoundland, and the capital of St John's. Excluding Greenland it is the easternmost city in not just Canada, but the entire North American continent. It is closer to the entirety of Ireland than it is Miami. It's closer to London than it is to Vancouver! As a result of jutting out form the continent across form Europe, it's one of the oldest European settlements in North America.

    As far as the FSC is concerned, Newfoundland does have a quirk that effects us ! Be aware! Newfound has it's own time zone and it's a weird one. It iss a half hour off. That means you'll hear shows starting at "10 o'clock, 10:30 in Newfoundland."

    Newfoundland's province is combined with that of Labrador, which means both parts of this province have dogs named after them.

    Anyhow, so we know where we are, but exactly what is there to do in this smaller town of about 100K? Well, there's a hike up to Signal Hill, which gives a beautiful view of the town, a tower, and is also the location from which the first transatlantic radio transmission took place. You can also check out Jellybean row, so named for colorful houses painted brightly so they can be scene through the fog. There's adventurous cuisine to be had, which include cod tongues (yuck), cubes of pork backfat called scrunchions (also yuck), and not a metaphor, seal flippers backed into flipper pie (yuck, yuck, and yuck - why are we here again?). Luckily, they have iceberg beer made with with water form icebergs if you want to see how beer made with 10000 year old water tastes. You can chase that down with locally grown cloudberries, which taste like sour raspberries (on second thought, pass.)

    11. Discussion about one's favourites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.

                            Hey I’ve been waiting for the US for last two months. I had next dibs. You must have forgotten Leo and not mention it when you saw someone else claim it. Oh well, what’s another few months. Have to find another pick!

                              Sorry, I didn't think we were able to call dibs on things. I know JSparksFan bestowed it to Leo last month because he finished top five and was able to but, as it didn't finish top five last month, it's fair game. I'm sure you'll get your chance soon!

                                        There's no wait list for countries. The clock resets each month. That has always been the set up.
