It’s possible that time actually managed to flow backwards during tonight’s first task. At the Roadblock, one member of each team had to fill in the dents on the side of a bus with putty, then sand it down until it was even. How long did this task go on? Days? Weeks? It’s impossible to say, but judging from the long, white beard I had to shave off before I could begin writing tonight, it took quite a while.
