Event: infighting; Week One Voting & Week Two

As seen here, on Friday morning everyone within the pods is taken out to the central meeting area. All powers are disabled and any attempts at physical attacks will be met with multiple retrieval drones. The results for week one are as follows:

Obedience: won by Dax, lost by Jason
Endurance: won by Jason, lost by Dax
Acclimation: won by Dax, lost by Riki
Point Totals: Dax: 2, Riki: 0, Jason: 1

As shown, each group lost one challenge, and therefore each group will be punished by voting off one of their members. The voted off party will be killed however the administrator in charge of the group sees fit. They will remain dead until Monday, upon which time they will be returned to the Tower and are out of the competition. Voting works as follows:

ICly
Each character may cast one vote. Voting is not mandatory--all characters will be instructed to step into a voting booth that matches the color of their team and must remain there for one minute, but they do not have to press any of the buttons. If they wish to vote, they will press the button beside the name of the character they wish to vote out of the group. Be aware that there is no need for a majority of the pod to vote: if everyone refuses to vote but one person, that one person will be directly choosing who is killed. You may use the end of week one subthread to play out voting decisions, react to the entire situation, or just generally thread out interactions between groups.

OOCly
Please fill out the form in the subthread here to cast a vote. Voting will last until 11:59PM EST on Sunday. You do not have to have your character cast a vote. In the event of a tie, all characters refusing to vote, or any other situation which would lead to a lack of consensus, the result will be randomized (between the options available or between everyone if literally no one voted).

Voting has been concluded. Dax's pod has lost [AU5] Ventus, Riki's pod has lost [OU] Suzaku, and Jason's pod has lost [OU] England. All will wake up on Monday within the Tower. IC voting results can be found here.

And now, week two! There are different challenges, now, and living conditions have changed somewhat to accommodate them/adjust for what has been learned on the first week.

Week Two Challenges
Challenges are classified as active or passive; passive ones require no work on your part except that you participate in the event in general, while active ones will require you reply to mark your character's participation. Results will be tallied at the end of the week.

Cooperation: How well do you and your podmates work together, both when it comes to living together and when it comes to participating in challenges? This challenge is passive.
Physical Health: A healthy Tower is a happy Tower! How is your physical condition? This challenge is passive.
Mental Health: Taking care of the mind is as important as taking care of the body, sometimes. How's your mental stability? This event is passive.

Treadmills: A more active way of testing endurance and strength! Whichever group runs on theirs the most wins! This challenge is active.
Balance: How good is your balance? You're about to find out! Whoever has the best balance wins. This challenge is active.
Food Challenge: Eating gross food is a good challenge, right? Whoever eats the grossest things wins! This challenge is active.

Living Conditions
Dax: Treadmills and balance beams have been added to the common room (taking the place of the television, which has been removed) with a note asking characters to please run and balance on them as much as possible. Characters will only receive what might be considered gross foods, but they are things people actually eat.

Riki: Riki's pod has warped nearly entirely. While the bedrooms remain the same as before, they are now attached to the common room via balance beams that, despite appearing straight, seem to twist and turn ridiculously; it takes at least fifteen minutes to cross one to get to and from the bedrooms. The floor in the common room starts moving inexplicably in places, as if treadmills have been melted directly into the floor. Even jumping off may have you land on another treadmill, even if one wasn't there before. They seem to appear and disappear at random. Characters can only order "gross" foods to eat.

Jason: Treadmills and balance beams have been added to the common rooms. Instead of being able to move around, characters will be chained to a treadmill or forced by retrieval units to remain on a balance beam for five hours every day. They will be able to talk to others but cannot walk over to directly interact with anyone else. Characters will notice a change in the taste of their nutrition bars--something...else... is being included in them. They no longer receive water to drink, but are instead being served multicolored drinks with odd tastes.

The thread for week two of this event will take place here.

Meanwhile, at the Tower...
One box of candy bars has appeared in the cafeteria. One crate containing cartons of milk has appeared in the cathedral. Five packets of mung bean seeds can be found scattered around the farmland.

Is cheating, magical or otherwise, allowed (provided said characters happen to luck out and be on an upswing with their empty collars)?

Also, can we poke around "examples" of gross food (articles on the subject, episodes of Survivor), to get an idea of what our characters are likel to be eating?

For Riki's pod, do the "gross" foods have to be actual, named dishes or can they just be things that can be eaten that are considered gross? For instance, would they be able to order unprepared slugs or snails or would they have to be prepared in some fashion such as escargot?

Can we order food that might be considered gross from the character's canon? Like a dish from Kuja's Gaia that's made from frogs.

Are things from the previous experiment still active? Like Hei had some chip in him that shocks him if he disobeys the tower, or even thinks of it. Would that still be active?

A few questions!

First, is the treadmill competition based on time or distance?

Second, would nasty food items be available from their respective worlds (like P4s Rancid Gravy or something), or is it limited to 'real' foods?

And third, if yes to the second, would something like the aforementioned Rancid Gravy keep its HP restoring properties?
