    Welcome back Survivors.

    As we get ever closer to the home stretch, Immunity becomes increasingly important. Today you have quite a task in front of you... but first, Gwen... you need to give up Immunity.

    There we go... now, on to the challenge.

    Over the past 14 weeks, we've seen a variety of different challenge types. Well, today... they come back to haunt you. This is a multipart challenge. Each section gives you the basic instructions of what you need to do. There's 9 parts to this challenge, you must fully complete every part of this challenge first to recieve immunity... otherwise, as usual, the person with the highest score wins. Immunity is increasingly important at this stage of the game. With that, I Wish you all increased luck.

    Part IV - Whodunit?

    Sherman Holmes had been born and raised in Albama and, despite his mania for Victorian England, had a deep, true affection for the American South. About once a year, usually on a warm spring weekend, he would gas up his antique Bentley and make the long pilgrimage back home.

    Sherman himself was an orphan, but he had always kept in contat with his childhood neighbors, Big Daddy Brown and his clan. On one of his annual visits, the odd little detective found himself joining the Browns in ever Alabamian's favorite pastime, a picnice.

    The scene was a satate park where the old southern family commandeered a picnic table. Big Daddy spread the tablecloth. Two of the grown children, Tiffany and Billy, unloaded the wicker baskets. The third, Julius, poured iced tea from a thermos, while Big Momma unpacked the crystal salt and pepper shakers and handed out cloth napkins. Sherman added his own touch, a candelabra topped with citronella candles to keep away the bugs.

    Although he saw the Browns just once a year, Sherman felt he knew them intimately. Julius was close to his own age, whicle Tiffany and Billy, the twins, were a good ten years younger. None were married, as if forming a family of their own might be some sort of affront to the domineering father who controlled their lives.

    On the surface, the picnic resembled the dozen previous picnics he'd attended with the Browns. Billy flipped burgers on the grill. Julius kept everyone's glass full. Tiffany and Bib Momma hovered over the proceedings, doling out seconds and thirds; while Big Daddy slatered butter on his corn, spilling half of it on his plate and wiping the other half from his mouth with a napkin.

    But something was wrong. The jokes were strained, the affection too forced and Sherman's sixth sense was kicking into gear. He tried to ignore it.

    Big Daddy's heart attack came duddenly, near the end of the meal. The elderly man's flesy face turned as white as his neatly trimmed mustache. His breathing grew heavy. Then he grasped his chest and collapsed backwards into the grass.

    Sherman and Julius rushed to Big Daddy's side. The others gathered around, looking on helplessly as the two men did their best to revive the stricken patriarch.

    "He's dead," Julius whispered.

    Tiffany ran off to call an ambulance, but everyone knew it would be too late.

    "He's had heart problems before," Billy said, then turned to comfort his mother. "This was the best way to go, Momma, surrounded by family and eating his favorite food."

    Sherman had seen a few heart attacks in his time, and this certainly looked like one. He'd also seen more than a few poisonings.

    Sherman glanced over at Big Daddy's place at the table. His glass was half full of iced tea. His plate held the remains of potato salad, coleslaw, and the uneaten sliver of a hamburger bun. A clean but rumpled napkin sat beside the plate, right next to the crystal salt shaker.

    The detective's heart sank. Why did people try to get away with murder when he was around? It just didn't make sense.

    Who killed Big Daddy?
    What clue gave the killer away?

    Part VIII - I'll Still Survive!
    -Answer!

    1. You and 2 buddies are out partying it up. Suddenly your friend Jeb falls down the stairs and breaks his leg. He obviously can't walk, so you and your other buddy need to carry him to safety. Which should you never do:
    a) lay him on his back - it won't help him with his leg
    b)slide your arms under Jeb's neck to pick him up - you'll choke the poor bastard!
    c)kneel behind him - what happens if he falls on you! You'll be injured too and thus be worthless.

    2. You and your beloved are walking across a large open field when suddenly a severe lightning storm develops right over the field. You already think you are hot, so feel that getting struck by lightning won't do much to help your winning personality. What should you do to avoid being struck by lightning?
    a) Stand up - lightning goes for flat surfaces, so you'll be safe if you are standing up
    b) panic - cause lets face it, you're gonna die anyway
    c) get inside - quick! Lighting doesn't like to go through windows, yo!

    3. You and your buddy Charlie are working in a butcher shop. While slicing some ham for Mrs. Jones one day, Charlie slices his finger off! Which should you not do to preserve the finger so that you can reattach it later?
    a) wash the finger - cause when you reattach it, outside water will contain bacteria and you'll get sick and die
    b) overwrap it! - if you wrap it too much, you won't be able to get oxygen to the finger and it won't be able to function properly when reattached
    c) freeze it! - it's best too keep it cold, and freezing it will ensure that it stays at it's coldest!

    What, not even an inkling of a clue for parts 7 or 9? That's kinda difficult...you don't really give us much to work with there, buddy. :eek:

    EDIT: Part V.2 - is that a typo? Should it be "that" instead of "the"?

    "I don't want to turn you in," Sherman said softly.

    It was two days later and the family was walking away from the burial site, heading back to the funeral home's limousine parked by the cemetery's gravel road.

    Sherman had maneuvered his way to Big Momma's side. They were out of earshot of the others and would be for the next minute or two.

    "I don't want to turn you in," he repeated. "Why did you do it?"

    "For the kids," said Big Momma. Her tone was eerily calm. "You saw how it was. All the time he pushed them down, controlled everything. Maybe now they can live their own lives. Me, too," she added as an afterthought.

    "You poisoned his napkin." Sherman said to show her that he knew. "Every time he went to wipe his mouth, he inhald a little poison. Then after he collapsed and no one was looking, you replaced it with a clean napkin. That's what I noticed. A clean napkin--that should have been covered with butter."

    "You can't prove it," Big Momma said with a thin smile. "Even if you dig up his body and check it for poison, that napkin no longer exists. You can't prove a thing."
