Scoring Update:

In Round 7 (Bonus Round), kjos had PM'd me his answer to question #15 (worth 4 points) separate from his other answers, and this PM was overlooked. Kjos did get question #15 correct, adding 4 points to his score, bringing his round 7 score to 8 points, and his cumulative score to 64. The main scoreboard has been updated to reflect this change.

This score change does not affect eliminations from the previous rounds, or the immunity from the previous rounds. Carry on!

I almost went for Washington but I figured most people wouldn't want to freeze at the Delaware. Socrates seemed like a safer choice, I would rather heckle Greek passerbys whilst drinking my wine.
