READ THE LISTS JUST BELOW!
EDIT: There is a new list for latecomers


You know it, GBS loves when it comes to shipping random objects to random strangers around the world. But have you ever thought to a continuous version of this ?
The time has come, dear goons, to make the first worldwide postal exquisite corpse: let me introduce The Goon Notebook.

First goons of each list will buy a pocket notebook, write something in it, then send it to another goon. This other goon will do the same thing and so on until the notebook is full, after the longest road trip a pocket notebook has ever made alone.

What should I put in the notebook?
Whatever may come to your mind, as long as you do some . It is of course not limited to writing : drawings, photographs, stickers, addition of extra objects or any cool technique that might produce a cool result are welcome.

Keep in mind that people may modify, comment or annotate your contribution. It's a collective work, don't be upset if it doesn't turn exactly as you planned.

A picture of the notebook and/or yourself in front of a famous momument is cool too.

Make sure that your contribution is not harmful for you, for the next goons, for the notebook itself. Not putting sulfuric acid, drugs or lava in it would be kind from you.

Most important thing, if you interrupt the circuit for any reason, a lot of goons will be disappointed. If you participate to this game, you'll have to make sure the notebook continues his trip. As soon as you receive it, the notebook is your burden. North Korea may attack, the notebook shall go through.

The shipping process may take very long, so hurry up when you receive the notebook, don't keep it on your "ongoing projects" shelf for one month. In fact, you should start right now to think to your contribution.

Special note for people at starting points
There will be several notebooks flying at the same time. If you volunteer to be a starting point, you'll have to get a nice pocket notebook of your choice and start an adventure. There is no rule about the choice of the notebook (unless it is harmful, like a death note or Voldemort's diairy).

There are approximately 15 persons per notebook so 40 pages is OK, but 200 pages isn't. You can set rules about the notebook, for example you can dedicate a few pages for collaborative masterpieces, set a photo gallery… A world map (or a America map for the america-only notebooks) glued at the beginning is strongly advised, so each goon can delineate the path of the notebook as it travels.

To be fair, people at starting points will also be at ending points. Once the notebook has accomplished his journey, the last goon will send it back to you, and you'll be allowed to keep it forever ! You'll also have to take pics or scan the whole thing and post it of the forums so we can witness the greatness.

Don't spoil!
When the trip is over, the starting/ending guys are supposed to post the whole contents of the book, so don't say what you saw/wrote before it's finished! However, you can make backups : take a few pics of the unfinished notebook, so we have something if it's lost later… But that won't happen, because you WON'T be a deadbeat!

So here are the lists:
The number next to the name is the page where you'll find the address of the mentioned goon. Starters are in bold text. People who reported being in possession of the notebook are in italics.

The lists are ordered: you'll send the book to the person just below your name.

There have been plenty of starting point requests, so I had to randomly choose them. Sorry if you weren't selected, maybe you will on another edition!

If you don't find your name, maybe I forgot you, or I couldn't find your country. PM me and I'll edit you in somewhere. Maybe I just mistyped your name

Ok, now you found your name, go take note of the address of the person just after you. You'll have to send him/her the notebook once you receive it. You should also PM/e-mail the previous and the next goon just to make sure they checked the thread and they're still in. If you didn't provide your address, you should send it to the previous person.

If you're late to the party
There is still a hope! Battle Pigeon (5) is ok to start a further notebook. Just say it in the thread. If you already participate to a notebook, but you're willing to be a step on a second one, say it too.

Dear starters, feel free to start!

Reply to this thread, with :
— Your postal address, with your city and country
— An e-mail address can be useful in case of problem
— If you volunteer for being a starting point
— If you're poor and you don't want to ship it to a foreign country (americans only). Keep in mind that I'll make my best to shorten the total distance, so it probably won't cross the ocean more than one times.
