Bill Nye and the Science Lies

Burton-Judson Scavenger Hunt: Saturday (by Burton-Judson Scav)

Item 197: Look, we’re not claiming to be experts here, but we’re pretty sure that a real documentary is supposed to have solemn narration, talking head experts, “Ashokan Farewell”, and the inability to show a still photo for more than two goddamn seconds without panning or zooming. With that in mind, use footage taken throughout the Hunt to create your own brief film in the style of Ken Burns recounting the adversity and triumph faced by your team each day. New episodes, not to exceed 2 minutes each, should be posted on YouTube by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. [20 points]

Item 299: Bear down to “Bearforce1” on the Chicago Bears “C”, printed on an actual turf field. No, Stagg Field doesn’t count, but that special piece of sod managed by the Park District and SMG should be worth something extra. [11 points. 5 extra points for Soldier Field]

Item 289: Is Jurassic Park about penis envy? Does D2: The Mighty Ducks depict the triumph of objectivism? Is Snakes on a Plane about the plight of the urban immigrant? They say that you can attach a subtext to anything if you look hard enough. So let’s do that!
 
Judge Tricky’s Subtext Colloquium was fantastic.  It didn’t make for great photographic opportunities, save for this gentleman who used the image drawn on the board behind him to illustrate The Lion King’s exploration of the themes of police brutality.  If I recall correctly, it represents the deformed power structure brought on by Scar’s coup against the animal kingdom.
