Rojo, I think that what you have written about those photo checkpoints is accurate, but could even be extended. These spots were analyzed, as I recall, because it was noticed while sleuthing through the pictures that at certain points on the course pictures were being snapped every couple of seconds, and a long portion of the course was visible (like 100m). So it is possible to stitch the photos together to make essentially a continuous movie. People even counted how many pictures were taken at these locations during different minutes around the time when Mike should have been running by (by looking at the timestamps of the photos). It's like 40+ photos per minute for the 10 minutes when Mike should have been running by. So it basically isn't possible that Mike ran by that part of the course, unless he ran the 100m that is visible in just a couple of seconds. Really, you should scroll through the relevant photos (and maybe put a link in your article), it's incredibly damning.
The three checkpoints where we looked for the 20 closest finishers to Mike (10 before and 10 after) was an extension of this line of evidence. The idea is that this is a little more concrete than simply telling people to either take our word for it that the pictures are 'basically overlapping and continuous', or to scroll through the photos themselves (which a lot of people won't). Indeed we found that all 20 closest finishers were seen at these checkpoints, many times each in most cases (which is pretty obvious that they would be if you've looked at how many pictures were being taken at these places when Mike was supposed to be coming through). Statistically, assuming Mike were just like these other people, the chances of this happening are about 1 in 9 thousand.
Raysism, 534, and whoever else was doing the checkpoint analysis, any of y'all still around? As I recall this discussion was happening somewhere around page 109 in the thread (give or take a few pages), so that might be a place to start looking for the information about how many pictures were taken each minute, etc.
I'm really glad to hear that this will make it into the article. I feel that these photo checkpoints are some of the simplest, most straightforward evidence against Mike, and very convincing. I would love it if Raysism et al who did this work could chime in and elaborate on what I've said.
