Winner: Danny Nawrocki
Our favourite contestant Danny got this one. But his answer sounds like he looked it up.
The Answer: "The Martingale system is a very old and extremely simple system.
It is based on the probability of losing infinite
times in a row and is usually applied to 'even money' bets.
You start with one bet. If you win, you start again with one bet.
If you lose, you double your bet. Each time you
lose, you double your last lost bet. Eventually you are bound to
win. When you win you would recover all your
lost bets plus one unit (or chip) profit against your initial
wager. So, this puts a limit on what you can win back in
The Contest To End All Contests
March 14 -
Thank goodness this trip is over, because we ran out of clever opening sentences a long
But, we can't end the trip without one more super duper giveaway, now can we? NO! That would be an insult to all of our devoted fans! After all, all we have to do is drive around and take photos.
It's you, the real workers out there, who actually have to sit down and read it! This was never about us... it was always about you. We can safely say that, gosh, we think we love you.
So, we've put a little something together, hopefully to keep you busy for the next little while as
we get ourselves organized for Round Two... Kevin & Aimee Go Walkabout.
What does the winner get? We won't know until we clean out the jeep! But one thing's
for certain: it'll be keen!
If I may take a moment to be serious... sigh... okay, that was it.
See You In Australia!

We love ya, Mel. We'll miss you in Australia.
By the way, did we mention?
Mel's Been Sold!
