  • Good question, Yum...the answer(s) is(are) actually different than I thought, so I learned something.

    One thing though: the hint intimates that the link will take folks straight to the video that they need to watch in order to find the answer(s) ("Find your hint about 45 seconds in").  However, the first video on the resulting page does not have the answer(s)...one must look at another video down the page in order to find the correct answer(s).  Perhaps using a link directly to the page section with the correct video would have helped, other than the header coming in and covering up the section title; or telling folks on which section title they need to click when they get to the page.

    Other than that, well done!  Thanks for putting together another monthly mission. These missions are fun, educational and by golly, we can get some cool swag just for paying attention in class!
