The Cullinary Institute of America (CIA) uses White China for many occasions. The "real reason"...

Seems like admin completely forgot about this game.


But at least there is a narrow field of possible winners.

Just thought I'd drop in and see how you guys were going and it appears that it's nowhere.
The admin obviously have no interest in whether this game ends or not.

There is a minimum period in which we need to allow for proper responses, and we're getting closer to that.

If there's no progress, we'll halt the game and have a random drawing for the remaining book prizes, then some other type of quick contest for the domain names of the top prize.

We don't really want you to do that, just give us a clue to this question. We enjoy collaborating but this question is just too vague, it would probably have been a hard question in itself but to lose the timeline makes it nigh on impossible. In my opinion you would have more chance of winning the Euromillions lottery jackpot.
So please, please, please give us a clue.

why not give a clue so the question can be answered and then revert back to the timeline type questions. if the people who are playing now and the people who were playing but stopped for various reasons, saw that the game was moving along again, perhaps it would gain back the lost momentum.

I'm not as busy as I was and might be able to get back into it.

I honestly think the admin have lost all confidence in the people who were playing this game mate.
The speed we went through the 2 previous games inspired them to come up with these questions, so it looks like we are the victims of our own success.
One thing I am sure of though is we had more help from HUNT in the previous game( who was always dropping into chat to give hints when we were stuck).

I'm not interested in the prizes or the domain. I really enjoy the research, the resulting knowledge, and the collaboration.

I agree with Crakeur that maybe we just need a kick-start to get this going again. A clue for the current question and back to chronological timeline... It's worth a shot, anyway

I agree, it did seem there was usually a hint, when needed, to keep the game flow. At least after a week or two, on any one question.

It also seemed that people were applauded,(as a hint), if they were on the right track, or close to an answer.

I've seen none of that steerage , this go 'round.

What are we missing??
Why the uncharacteristic 'big deal' over ONE question?

Was it-

the complaints about referrals?
or
the lack of referrals ?
or
something I'm totally missing?

-that has seemingly resulted in the Admin.'s 'throw in the towel' attitude on this game??


Just curious

How will you decide who is eligable for this?
People have dropped in and out of the game, some have contributed good leads and answers whilst others have barked up the wrong tree but have still put the research in.

I still say give us a clue so we can go forward and hopefully complete this game. The game may not be as popular as you had hoped but I still think the few of us left should be given the chance.

I agree with the Executioner, Crackur Zarniwoop and JBird. I don't want the game to end, I just want a clue to the current question. Once we get past that, let's see how it goes.

And, yeah, let's get back to the original chronology!

Kind of intense, knowing there is a clock ticking away.



Good Luck, guys!

I did some work on this on and off, quietly. I figured if I could get it without bumping my gums it would look like I'd come to the rescue out of the blue and wasn't stumped... I underestimated the question.

The CIA has such a drug history that it's not even funny. From Burma to Iran-Contra you can't even see the forest through the um... trees (rimshot).

I looked for alternative meanings to white china, but came up blank. (of course I never really considered the idea that it was refering to porcelain)

I did google CIA + porcelain, and all I found was a paranoid sounding rant that demonized Paladin Press and suggested that the CIA electrified screens in urinals as an assassination tool. I would like to see that one on Myth Busters, but I can't get an answer out of it.

WTF????

They got bent out of shape because of the referrals, and made the questions much, much harder without being chronologic.

So now that we're really struggling, they're pulling the plug?

I'd like about fifty hours of my life back please.


Since that's probably not gonna happen, I guess I'll keep plugging away.

For White China, all I can come up with is heroin/drugs. I'm sure we've all looked at the same pages several times on that.

The other thing I thought of is maybe the formation of Taiwan (White China, as opposed to Mainland China/Red China). Haven't really been able to find any kind of conspiracy with that though.

Anyway here's a list of what I've tried:
vietnam
vietnamwar
blackops
blackopsbudget
covertops
covertopbudget
kennedyassassination
jfkassassination
panam103
panam103bombing
nuganhandbank
taiwan
kmt
goldentriangle
airamerica
seasupply
seasupplyco

Probably pretty much the same stuff everyone's tried. Maybe someone will see something and have an epiphany.

Well, good luck guys, we're gonna need it.

Ha, ha. Don't know if I'd call it an epiphany,
but at least I got some indication I'm not just dumb as a post,
now seeing that the resident geniuses are also struggling,
behind the scenes.

I was wondering if you guys were still playing.

It seems our pitiful wallowing has managed to attract some attention, anyway.
We've got the 'Spork, and the Crakeur, back in the fold.

Perhaps a shoutout to the rest of the 'fellowship' would be helpful in dragging us out of the conspiratorial dregs...

Not as far as I know mate.
Well it seems all our begging has fallen on deaf ears and the admin just want this game to die.

I just searched ATS for the second time for White China and CIA.

Last time I got nothing. This time a thread came up.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It's a long shot, but I'm gonna try Kurt Cobain related answers.

I think we should also consider some Afghanistan/WOT related answers, since there has been some talk that the invasion of Aghanistan opened up opium trade there.

Just a few initial tries on some of those angles. it really sucks that we dont get an indication of whether we're close, just phrasing it wrong, or way off.
