My wife is obsessed with craigslist. To her, it's the second "R" in the old adage, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle." I occasionally have to do the dirty work of picking up the goods, and occasionally things get sketchy.

Late last night, after buying a rug from a stranger nearby, I received a phone call from a police officer. Apparently, someone had seen me loading the rug into the back of my trunk, and they confused the rug for a dead body. They called the police, triggering a neighborhood-wide man-hunt. I'm not kidding.

Some twenty cops went from door to door, until they found the woman from whom I bought the rug. She explained the situation and gave them my phone number. Shortly thereafter, I got the call from the police officer, letting me know that they had started an investigation, but not to worry, since they had already closed the case.

The woman called me today to check up on me, and we both had quite a laugh.

BUILD virtually ANYTHING and compete against other teams in a variety of
challenging contests!

Dream team candidates should have ADVANCED PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE (but

following:
-engineering
-physics/math
-automotive/engine
-materials
-computers (programming languages)

SOUND LIKE FUN? Send us your AUDITION VIDEO!
******************NEW DEADLINE MARCH 9TH!*********************

AUDITION VIDEO TIPS
INDIVIDUAL SUBMISSIONS
Your audition tape should be 1:30 – 4:00 minutes in length. It should tell us your
name, profession and educational background, but more importantly, it should show of
your passion and enthusiasm for building, engineering, making, etc. You should list all of
your relevant skills (see list above) and why exactly you would make an excellent “dream
team” member. As a rule of thumb, aim to “show”, not just “tell”. This means that if
possible, you should show off your garage, basement or workshop, and some examples of
the nifty stuff you’ve already built. And last but not least, you must answer the following
question in thirty seconds or less:

“Describe how you would construct a device to launch a laptop SAFELY across a
football field, such that it is operational after landing.”

TEAM SUBMISSIONS
If you would like to submit an audition tape as a pre-existing partnership or team
(maximum 4 people), each team member must be represented equally, with a minimum
of 1:00 minute each of screen time. Check the “Individual Submissions” list above as a
guideline. And you must answer the following question:

“Describe how you would construct a device to launch a laptop SAFELY across a
football field, such that it is operational after landing.”

MORE DETAILS
You can shoot your audition tape on any recording device (including camera phones).
Just make sure your video has good lighting (we need to see you) and good audio (we
need to hear you). Be sincere, be passionate, be creative, and have fun!

Just upload your videos to YOUTUBE, and include the youtube URL in your
ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE which you can complete at the following link:
