I was on the North American team at that half-time and I noticed that
when we came off the stage most of the seats in the hall were still
full, so I'd say it was very successful (tho' the European team's
Marilyn Monroe did beat out our slightly gay pope). The rest of the
Masquerade ran as most of them do (the play-by-play of Terry Pratchett
writing was particularly simple, but hysterical at the same time).

It is now clear that the Krell** never invented an internet.
Because if they had, they would have known about that id problem.
**The Krell: the super-beings from the movie 'Forbidden Planet'
who destroyed themselves overnight after linking their minds to the
nearly unlimited energy source that powered their civilization and
unleashing the dark id lurking beneath their vast intellects.
