bonanova would be correct if there were 1000 bottles.
Being an engineer and not a mathematician, I built in some redundancy.
And next puzzle I solve, I'll wear my glasses.

Spoiler for My point
[1]
1.0000....
0.9999....
are equal to each other only when we goes until infinity.
[2]
there is always some difference between the above two numbers.

Spoiler for now that I had time
Case 1: No Mixed
WBB (2) - Seat 1
BWB (2) - Seat 2
BBW (2) - Seat 3
(Person in the seat can see four black stamps, so both of his must be white)
Case 2: 1 Mixed
BWM (8) - Seat 3
MBW (8) - Seat 1 (on second turn)
BMW (8) - Seat 2 (on second turn)
(If his were White or Black one of the other would of know, since no other person spoke it must be mixed.)
Case 3: 2 Mixed
MBM (8) - Seat 1 (on second turn)
(If seat 1 were black or white, player three would have know that his was mixed, therefore seat 1 has to be mixed.)
BMM (8) - Seat 2 (on second turn)
MMB (8) - Seat 2 (on second turn)
(Seat 2 can see a person with black stamps, since the other person did not know, then the other person can't see two black or one black and one white, therefore seat 2 must be mixed.)
I guess that is the point I'm not getting.
How would seeing one black and one white disclose your color?
I think at this point Seat 2 knows only that she is not black.
What tells her that she also is not white?
Case 4: All Mixed
MMM (16) - Seat 2 (on second turn)
(For seat 2 the only other possiblilty would be MBM (or MWM), if that was the case then seat 1 would have known (see above), therefore seat 2 has to be mixed.)
I think Seat 2 can't know she is mixed in this case until her third turn.
The (see above) part of your analysis is what I asked about above.
Seat 1 - 18
Seat 2 - 42
Seat 3 - 10
So seat 2 would be the best to choice he would have 42/70 chance that the stamp you laid out in a combination that he could work out.

doesn't work: when you get to the South pole, how do you run West?Yep. I presume you mean 1 mile north of south pole?
does: for example, any point on the circle (1 + 1/2pi) miles from the South Pole.There's an infinite number of circles around the South Pole where he could have started.
