World War I proves confusing for all, while Morse Code proves impossible for one team
From the newly revised American 2010 Declaration of Independence:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (and also women) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator (or by evolution, in the case of a Godless universe) with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of a million dollars on the unscripted TV show of their choosing."
I took it upon myself to do a little Jeffersonian overhaul after watching Sunday (March 14) night's episode of "The Amazing Race" and pondering how the show's producers ended up with this pack of contestants who seem not to feel any urgency or excitement at being a part of this globe-trotting game show with a massive cash prize.
At least half of the remaining eight teams on "The Amazing Race" aggressively appear not to have any desire to win and, in addition, seem to have an almost anhedonic inability to enjoy what they're doing. At the very least, that's some dreadful casting work on a show which has thrived on pitch-perfect casting over the course of its Emmy-winning run.
So while Sunday's episode was tense and rather thrilling at points, I spent less time excited and more time eager to throttle the alleged competitors.
