(Kiri goes over the details of an engineering experiment to create a vehicle using balsa and rubber bands to transport an egg a hundred feet. She gets Skip hooked into doing the project also due to his extensive engineering background.) 

Russ: engineering questions sweetheart.

Kiri: okay.

Russ: eggs…..

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: and the ability to move them a hundred feet.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: okay now, are there any outside rules I should know about before I go about taking time and money to design something that’s going to carry an egg a hundred feet?

Kiri: oh you’re going to spend money?

Russ: I’m going to spend money, I have to spend money to make this thing work. So before I spend time and money to do this…..it’s an engineering question she put to me and Mark, we have to design something that will take an egg a hundred feet and I have to know any rules before doing all this work….

Kiri: yes, the only power source allowed….

Russ: is a rubber band, three rubber bands.

Kiri: yeah, maximum.

Russ: three rubber bands maximum.

Kiri: hey you want to participate Skip?

Russ: I can do it, I’ve got the plans in my head, I just have to know if there’s any rules that will negate the plans I’ve got in my head.

Kiri: no, don't forget, it’s got to be all........

Russ: balsa.

Kiri: balsa.

Russ: well now that’s a question I wanted to ask you here….

Kiri: okay, balsa, glue.

Russ: balsa and glue.

Kiri: yes and of course you need nails and stuff to pin the wheels on if you’re going to pin the wheels on there or if you're going to need nails to hold the rubber bands.

Russ: now…..

Kiri: you want to participate, you want to do this? Come on, you’ve got until the end of September. Skip, you’re in on it.

Laura: he can do this.

Russ: you’ll have a great time with this dude.

Kiri: Skip, you’re in on it, you want to participate?

Russ: nails, balsa, glue and rubber bands.

Skip: three rubber bands, 30 yards.

Kiri: thank you.

Skip: use balsa and glue, rubber bands and wheels.

Russ: nails.

Kiri: nails.

Russ: and wheels.

Kiri: uh-huh, well, wheels made out of balsa.

Russ: wheels made out of balsa right.

Skip: yeah I’ll take up the challenge, I will take up that challenge.

Kiri: there is no prize apart from the prize of being the best.

Skip: I will take up that challenge.

Kiri: okay and I’m the official judge.

Skip: and you want to transport an egg 300…..

Laura: 100....

Russ: 100 feet.

Kiri: well if you want to do 300 feet, certainly, let’s up the ante a little bit.

Skip: 30 yards, 30 yards, a hundred feet.

Kiri: a hundred feet.

Skip: 30 yards.

Russ: uh-huh.

Velvet: a hundred yards.

Skip: yeah, I’ll take up that challenge.

Kiri: okay.

Skip: yes I will.

Kiri: end of September okay? And we’ll have a special channeling session for that.

Russ: this should be a good....how is Mark be able to participate and have you channeling?

Skip: now okay, question, question, question......

Kiri: uh-huh?

Skip: raw egg or hard-boiled?

Kiri: raw.

Skip: okay.

Kiri: raw egg.

Skip: okay.

Kiri: and at the end we will break the eggs and make an omelet.

Russ: if they don’t break first.

Kiri: that’s right, that will be the reward that the person that wins gets the omelet.

Laura: who’s cooking?

Kiri: the losers.

Russ: and there’s no time right? No certain time limit?

Kiri: no time, no time.

Russ: okay, so as long as it gets there.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: okay. Does it have to be a straight course or can it veer off here and there as long as it makes……

Kiri: as long as it makes it to the hundred yards, hundred yard marker.

Russ: how are you going to mark that out?

Skip: hundred feet marker.

Kiri: a hundred feet marker yeah, well you've get a tape measure that goes a hundred feet.

Shane: I don’t

Skip: yeah I do.

Russ: you do?

Skip: yeah.

Russ: okay.

Skip: I’ve got a hundred foot tape.

Russ: we can use it.

Skip: now....

Kiri: yeah sure.

Skip: by you veering, you’re going to travel more than a hundred feet partner.

Russ: yeah well I’m taking that into account. In my head I got this planned out, I just don't know what's going to happen until I put this into action.

Skip: let's see.....yeah, I'll take up that challenge.

Kiri: okay, right.

Russ: boy this is going to be a real challenge now.

Kiri: uh-huh, I think Mark’s going to have a workout as well.
