I know my shot isn't amazing but I really thought it would do better than this! Oh well, it's only early (lots of time for it to drop, LOL).

I'm shocked at the low scores here... I wonder if people liked this like the water bottle challenge.

I started with a ridiculous "3" and after 4s and 5s got a bout of 6s to end up at 9/5.1111 before bed. Figuring it'd started going the right direction, this morning would be a pleasant surprise.

It was a surprise alright.

18 more votes, also averaging 5.1111 -- so roughly the same exact mix as the first 9!!!

27 @ 5.1111 now -- this is NOT a 5.1 image.

Public Service Announcement

I'm getting dinged for having an entry that some deem to be a shoehorn -- voters apparently don't believe X chips actually exist. It most certainly isn't a shoehorn since the X chips is a phrase we use routinely.

I'd like to just kindly request that voters respect the fact that our members come from all over the world where terminology and names for things may be different. If you don't immediately recognize a phrase or term, please don't automatically assume that it is made up, just be sensitive to the fact that not everyone speaks the same. Often a quick Google will show you whether something is a valid term/phrase or not.

Thanks for your understanding.

I've never, ever had a score this low before. It's clear, in focus, good colours, meets the challenge, I don't get it. I don't normally complain about my scores but this just doesn't make sense!

I am horrified with my score to be honest. I just do not understand it one bit.

I'm confused... I seem to have dropped significantly today... Scratching head and wondering why... I feel good about my entry. I'm deserve a higher score...getting tired of being jiped.

I think it's because you added a "U" to "colors" -- Just a guess. :)

At least on the positive side, I haven't got a comment saying my image was fake :)

You keep using that word, and it's actually not a nice word.

I thought it was gypped (my spellchecker didn't hate that one like it did jipped and jiped :)

And not sure it's "actually not a nice word"

In my vocabulary it is not bad... Just means I'm getting hit with some low votes. Not sure
about the spelling...

"Gypped/jipped' doesn't seem derogatory unless you are a Gypsy...and then it is.

Never thought of that before (Gypped coming from Gypsy). Interesting. Something to think about next time I'm in the paddy wagon.

Okay for this challenge I will say I'm feeling a little chipped with my scores.

Volcabulary and lexicology aside - it would appear the trolls have taken over the voting - Again!!

Damn their cold cold hearts
