The rules for the benefit of @ma0sm and others are insanely simple. The clock starts at 9am on Saturday morning (either this week or next depending on the poll).
From there, it’s last diser standing. You cannot leave your perimeter. House garden and drive are fine but the second you leave your property you’re done.
It’s an honour system. Last time a lot of people fought hard to stay inside. The rain helped and I think this time will be harder because it might well be sunny and the temptation to bail on the homestead will be real. Some ordered takeout. Others were lucky enough to be ill and therefore could dodge work.
This year I’m adding a prize.
I will bestow on the winner 1 x pair of premium uniqlo tracksuit bottoms to celebrate and encourage their loafing. This is a worldwide offer coz postage won’t be too bad for something so light and pack-downable.
There can only be one winner but know that I will be proud of all of you. But only in an existential sense. In reality I will only be proud of one of you. Last year there were 5 or 6 extremely competitive hermits. I feel like this year could be far more.
To coin the phrase founded last time around:
Do or do not. There is no point
