The second day of live, Scientists at the University of Harmony had noticed that Egypt's ecology changed, making it so that most pre-existing pits of tar sunk into the sand to never be seen again. They also noted that additional tar pits still exist, and suggested that explorers find these pits to share with the world.

The Nomad's Paradise location was confirmed by Cyndi on 12/16/08 (Day 4)

The Sinai location (4773, 5887) was confirmed by Egyptian Tigress on 12/17/08 (Day 5)
