Each item on this list is worth a certain number of points. Some of the items describe actions to be performed, some require that a certain event, person, or object be proven to exist or be possible. Points will be awarded if sufficient proof is given that the action has been performed or that the event/person/object exists or could exist, as applicable. Especially clever proofs will be awarded bonus points.
