Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress: Timer Error?
« on: March 26, 2014, 10:34:29 PM »
So I was watching the Temple Run for Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress, and I noticed something peculiar with the timer. When David was in the Tomb of the Ancient Kings, the clock went for 0:39, 0:38, 0:37, but then it went back up to 0:38. To compensate for that, when David was in the Holes of Python, the timer counted 0:33, 0:32, 0:31 faster than it should. Has anyone else noticed that?

Nope, I never noticed that. This is also the same temple run where people like to claim the team won with 2 seconds left instead of 1 second. Not that I'm arguing with that, but since this has to do with timing, I thought I might point that out.

Another interesting thing about Lawrence of Arabia was that you can actually hear the "out of time" noise from the clock as David crosses the gate. I am not sure if this was bad editing or because of the close call, but I believe the clock disappears as if the team used all three minutes. I guess the Green Monkeys finished with 2 seconds though even though it was a close call. I personally refer to this as a 1 second win because that is what I have viewed it as for years.  :lol:

Yeah, I'm always used to calling it a "one second win" as well. :lol: Even though David doesn't technically set foot near the gates until the two second mark. And I do remember the "out of time" sound playing right when David crosses the gate. I think that was just the sound department playing the "sounds" at awkward times. You know Season 1 and its quirkiness. :P

Speaking of Lawrence of Arabia, do you think that David would've won if he used the ladder in the Wheel Room instead of "climb the mountain"? Personally, I don't think he would've won if used the ladder. I thought that it was pretty clever of him to use the Wall Climb to escape.  :mrgreen:

Yeah, I doubt he would've won either if David has used the ladder. Since time was REALLY ticking down when David was exiting the temple. And if he did use the ladder and actually lost, then we could actually blame David for "climbing the ladders." Good thing he used the Wall Climb portion of the wall. :mrgreen: I wonder why other contestants never thought of that.

^ I don't he would've, either. The transition from the ladder to the crawl tube to the Cave of Sighs would've taken too much time. Maybe we would've seen another Broken Wing of Icarus if he had used the ladder?

Probably because it is more conventional to use a ladder rather than cut out boxes on the side of a wall?

I always thought that David had the best temple exit on the show too. Either him or Olivia-Emma. Those were two wins where I never expected either contestant to pull it off, but both really hauled ass to get their wins. Especially David, who basically leaps out of the Cave of Sighs and crosses the temple gate.  :mrgreen:

Wow, I've never noticed that, either. :shock: At least it looks like it wouldn't have affected the outcome, unlike this occurrence on Family Double Dare where the clock got stuck on 11 for a few seconds during the obstacle course, allowing the family to win the grand prize:
