It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

So there's a plausible hypothesis that the Stonehenge's purpose was to amplify sound made in its interior, and diminish external noise.

Of course, there's no way to be certain, but if that's the case, I find it amazing. Just imagining that prehistorical humans figured out a way to arrange massive stones to amplify sound of ancient rituals makes that place even more amazing than I could ever find it to be.

That's a really cool hypothesis. Stranger things have happened...

I finished the challenge!

That was simultaneously the most fun and most harrowing thing I've done in a good long while. I'm never doing *that* again.

Let's do it again!

Congratulations, Chris! I'm really excited for you!

I haven't read the details of how the challenge works, so I don't know, but will we have the chance to read those scripts anytime soon?
