Here is CJ's guest post on our Mystery Skype from 12/13/16:
So we’re just getting started and everyone is excited. We’re introducing the other class...oh, they’re in the USA.
Oh what a break!! They asked the same thing! Now we ask, “Are you east of 98 degrees longitude?” NO. There was a mix-up...we’re up by 1 and we’re doing good. Their turn: Are we west of mississippi? NO. Our turn.
Are you in the central USA time zone? Yes. It’s getting close to us. Are we in the Northeast region, oh no they got our region. We say, “Are you southeast region? That doesn’t make any sense, we already correctly answered to central time zone. They said are we east of the Hudson River? No
Our turn… “Are you in the mid west region?”
Things are getting hot, oh no they know that we border the ocean.
Our turn, are you north of Iowa? Yes.
Is you state name two words? Yes.
Are you in Minnesota? NO. We’re getting closer to the jackpot. It must be Wisconsin...but our question failed.
No, they found us! We ask, “Are you in Michigan?” Our turn again. Request of finding town failed. North Dakota and South Dakota...oh we got them! South Dakota!

Runners stop and remember what the researchers say.
Don't go your own way
Questioners need to be louder
