How do we know its a FF?

I'm guessing that the chair being carried is part of the RB which will be something like 'refurbish a bus', which will include replacing the seats and painting the outside. All I can see in Brent's hand is the RB clue..

I can't see any definitive evidence for a FF, either. What one of the Beekman Boys are carrying seems to be the same thing Rob of the Monster Truckers was carrying in one of the pre race promos.

I'll see if I can find it.

Found it! :lol:

 :lol:  just copying the spelling found on the Panoramio pix people post on Google Earth.  Saw it spelled both ways.  Blame the British colonials for the confusion.  Those Brits have a different way of spelling everything  :lol3:  (:;)  :groan:

Bangladesh awards farmer who killed 83,000 rats

By JULHAS ALAM (AP) – 1 day ago

DHAKA, Bangladesh — Bangladesh on Wednesday awarded a farmer who killed more than 83,000 rats and launched a monthlong campaign nationwide to kill millions more, to protect crops and reduce the need for food imports.

Mokhairul Islam, 40, won a first prize of a color television for killing some 83,450 rats in the past nine months in Gazipur district near the South Asian country’s capital, Dhaka. He collected their tails for proof.

“I am so happy to get this honor,” Islam told The Associated Press after receiving a 14-inch television and a certificate amid cheers at an official ceremony packed with 500 farmers and officials. “I had no idea that the government gives prizes for this.”

“This is an exciting moment. I will continue to kill them,” he vowed.

Caps comments:

They show a LOT of caps of that intersection, and a LOT of caps of the busses.

We have a production/security sighting as well, lol.
 
And a waterside market.

And we have a sack, some gloves, and  maybe some ratties too?? :lol:

You're not the only one who think that.  I was going to say the same thing.  It looks like James & Abba are going for the FF.

Yes, I think we have some info on this somewhere in pre race caps maybe? It is a huge food supply and health  problem and killing rats is imperative!! Not just any task, hopefully this will spotlight a real issue.

These three shots are about a half mile west of the 2nd Buruganga River bridge.  There is a vegetable trader market there.  Panaramio

Looks more like a side of the Detour.  Look at the white bags, the tapestries, and the other positions behind them.  I don't discard your spec, but look for rats inside a closed bag - because, if its open, they will surely escape - ?  IDK...  :duno:

(Unless they were not searching for real rats - I remember the polo Detour in Bariloche on TAR16 with the horses of wood :lol: -.)

Well I agree Chateau........I dont know why anyone would have a stick in their hand on a cotton grading table unless they were expecting "something" to run out of the pile.  It is not as if the raw cotton is going to attack them. Plus it looks like the short dude is "herding" something toward the tall dude. The tall dude is ready to hit something coming out of the pile of cotton.
