I wouldn't have put it so bluntly as that, anon. If it wasn't for these guys breaking new boundaries, we wouldn't be able to follow in their footsteps. A *BEEP* contest has no value; but this contest does have value.
I do wonder if there are other question which could be addressed now. Such as - this all sounds very theoretical; having got the weights this low, what would you really take, and why. You can easily allow yourselves some leeway here, eg. a tarp twice the size to keep the wind off, or a bag with a zip, or whatever. You could take the weight back up to 2 or 3 lbs total, and have double the enjoyment. Maybe this is the direction this list should be taking now?
