Task Failed As Group Goes To Bed
Having been awake for around 37 hours and with a good 23
still to go, the group jacked-in the Sleep Depravation task
and went straight to bed tonight.
Despite Laura and others wanting to quit this morning, the
group battled-on for fear of ruining the Twins' birthday bash

Gerry said he was prepared to stay awake, but not to continue

So, despite going for as long as they could sensibly manage,
the task had been automatically failed and the group will
now get a basic shopping budget for next week.
The fatigued fourteen readied themselves for bed, but not
before they'd gathered all the food that Amanda ordered last
