I'm trying to figure out this puzzle. I'll attach the images and if someone could help me, that'd be great.

I'm usually really good at these, and these are all the clues that were found.

I know for a fact that it is one word. How to get it, I can't figure it out.

Thanks again for your help!

Grr, the best I can figure it's either some freaking number to use in x-y coordinates.

You can see them on the map on the bottom right corner of the screen.

::flails:: I am getting frustrated. Could it be a math word problem?

Oh yeah, an email was sent to the address on the billboard:

I'm interested to know how to stop the bugs
Red Signet is Number One
But Yellow Blast is second to none
Green Tag puts bugs in their place
However Blue Bottle can give me four reasons why they beat the competition
Purple Label insecticide was awarded HomeMaker's Seal of Approval five
years running.
And Active Orange is able to kill six kinds of household pets.

Also fairly interesting that these brands appear to be making such a
large presence, so shortly after the new terror alert chart was

I like playing organizational games, so I took the terror alert chart,
and organized the numbers to match up with that, and came up with

I was thinking maybe this is an address... or a location?

I need to get rid of these bugs, please help!

This was the reply, I'm sure I'm missing a clue somewhere:

You see, the funny thing about bugs is that they pop up where you least expect them. And sometimes
they don't do what you think they will. Your bug problems are no exception. But you'll need to send
us some more specific information before we can help you.

Send word when you have it.

Okay.. this is an in-character newspaper. This was released prior to the live-event starting.

If someone is trying to help me, take note of the "Terror Alert Chart." That's how the numbers that were found in the email sent were put in order.

Eh, I didn't see the post yesterday, but you're right.

Relapse of kicking yo ass.

And by ass, I mean buttocks. And by buttocks, I mean. I don't really know.

No, I just woke up super early and had to go grocery shopping so my mind's a little out of place. More than normally, or abnormally. However the fuck you want to say it.

I vote relapse though, just because we haven't had a good flame war and I feel like defending something that doesn't involve me. Like this country.
