WP... When you said, or should I say goodbye... did you mean that they were eliminated here?  I thought when I viewd the pictures before, they had said they heard Phil say that was their 2nd consecutive win?

I am thinking there are 2 M/F teams and 1 M/M team in the finals?
The original post from the amazing TAR detective weihen is here:

Oh man - Bopper has a heart wrenching story - 6 year old child sick from coal dust.
As the father of a young child, I wish they had won.
This guy and his family deserve the support of the TAR community in their fight against big coal.

How far do you think he made it? How great would it have been if he would have won!

The Italy leg is speculated to be Leg 5, so I don't believe they made it very far unfortunately :( Most likely 7th or 8th place (I'd say 8th place)

Thanks, that is really a shame I would've liked to see someone like that win!

It is unbelievable how mysterious life is!  I am freaking out here.  I was contacted a couple days ago by a fellow family researcher of my family line.  She had some questions and I set about finding answers for her and just this morning, I found a story about the life of a daughter of my 3rd great grandmother.  In this story, it said that the family lived near a coal mine and that my grandmother became very, very sick from the dust and even though my grandfather moved them away, she was already so weak and sickly.  Not long after the move, my grandmother died.  So I am flaberghasted to say the least to hear about Bopper's daughter and coal dust just hours after discovering how my great grandmother died!  :o  :cmas13

Looks like Vanessa is a mactor type that may have covered some MMA on ESPN among other things.

So they have never used the Bullet Train in USA TAR?

That makes me want to see it used in TAR20.   :cmas16

I think TAR12 used the High Speed Rail while in Taiwan, but definitely not in Japan. I'm not sure if it is the same thing (I know very little about the railway systems of Japan :cmaslol ) and I don't know which one is faster, but I also want to see the Bullet Train in TAR20! :cmas16
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

The Shinkansen line from Osaka to Tokyo accommodates up to 270 km/hr speed. The High Speed Rail line from Taipei to Kaohsiung is much newer and has speeds up to 315 km/hr. It's close, but Taiwan gets the nod.

i think we have a team of twin brothers andrew and elliott weber. 

http://www.sjearthquakes.com/players/andrew-weber

if you go to that website and click on "about", it mentions that he has a twin brother elliott who has a successful band in arizona. 

thanks to "amazinglatinoamericafan" for finding out that andrew plays soccer.
