Sup folks! As we continue to catch up with the pending updates, here’s your week at Parachute + partners (20 Dec - 26 Dec'19):
Richi hosted a movie trivia in TTR for a 25k $PAR prize pool. While going through the ParJar stats this week, Cap found that FlareofFlame is in the clear lead at tipping with 33k tips so far. Whoa! The College Football Bowl Season kicked off this week with a 100k $PAR pool and 21 participants. Best of Luck! This week's creative #donkeycronicles prompt by Jason was based on Doc Vic's latest episode of #parachutetwistedhospital: "Draw this story in either a single picture or a comic book style" and win some cool $PAR. Neat! Jason also hosted 3 more prompts for Christmas: draw an unorthodox Christmas scene (#donkeychristmas), share your crazy Christmas traditions (#crazychristmas) and send a photo of your holiday decorations (#happyholidays). Remember the recent Parachute World Map survey? Here are the results:
So cool to see Parachuters distributed across the globe
Andy put up a riddle for Parachuters for 50k $PAR: "Today starts my Half-Adam Sandler. 25000 PAR + (25000 from Jason) to first person to get the reference. Clue : Tis the season, think theaters, animation". Travis cracked this one. The answer is 4 days of Christmas. Derived from “8 crazy nights”. Thank you for the shoutout Rogel. And congrats on the win! This week’s Parena saw Nico’s Anteater beat Jimpanze’s Unicorn in the finale to take home a cool 25k $PAR prize. Several new assets were added to ParJar this week including $CALL. Great intro video too. Awesome feature on Yahoo Finance as well. Plus, the TTR crew picked up a project on the decline and are trying something interesting to see if they can bring it back from hibernation - $DYT. It was listed on ParJar as well. Welcome to the fam! In this week’s #FPL update by LordHades, we continue to have LH, NovelCloud and Alexis in the lead. For a change, Alexis hosted a Champions League wager in TTR. Guess Doc Vic needs a break sometimes to run the ParachuteWarZone. The #wholesomewed task for this week involved talking about presents we gave or received during the holidays.
Epic creation for #donkeychristmas Carlos!
