    Of course, it just looks like it, but we don't now what those sneaky chinese man have up their sleeves. Maybe they start mass producing crunchers like everything else done there and they'll outrun us!

    We might just end up a good amount in front of them for 3rd place, this is going to be interesting. :toast:


    I was looking into the possibility of ending up in 2nd place, but just noted Ukraine puts out about 3.1-3.2 million PPD. So they are still pulling away from us and we are about 23-24k points behind them in the challenge, so that's not feasible at all. :( Oh well, we still did pretty darn good. :)

    Still, the fact that we can even consider the possibility of competing with Ukraine, and likely beat China, which are both entire countries, is pretty darn impressive. :)

    I agree Binary. I mean for us to actually be competing with countries is as you stated "pretty darn impressive." :toast::rockout::rockout::rockout:

    I'm not sure, at the rate we're currently closing, it may take us two days, but who knows? Maybe we will overtake them tomorrow. :D

    ***UPDATE***


    So we finally got past China and have moved into 3rd, now let's see how far ahead we can pull away from them and if we can at least start to close in on 2nd place. :D


    Thank you all for your contribution and to the folders as well for helping out!
