player four contest application instructions
you'd like to apply to move in, join our household, expose your
life to thousands of anonymous readers and answer the phone on

write up a short paragraph or two describing yourself and why
you'd be a good match to join the treasure island experiment.
If you do not speak and write english, have someone else write

thank you very much. Then:

if you've been reading the site, you know that there is no step

be lucky to share a $1100 slumlord's filthy closet room in a wet

steal your food. And hurry, cause it's all over february 23, 2001.
