Yay! It works out well to know when to check on the game!

Hmm, I'm always horrible with reading into the Boss' answers. I'll safety vote 21Kaldridge21 for now but I think the 1st round is the best time for majority voting.

As for a sound I love... I really love rain/thunderstorms, as long as I'm home for it LOL It might sound odd, but I really love the light snoring my dog makes when he sleeps - it's really soothing & it calms me after a hard day ^_^

Not sure about the answer really, I know that it has been mentioned before about someone who does not use punctuation in their posts, but can't for the life of me remember who it was. I am sure another player can answer that.

I love the sound of a young child (2-4) laughing. Not a whole group of kids laughing when they play, just one little person laughing heartily at something. They get so into it.

I hate the sound of nails on a chalkboard and love the sound of fingers tapping on a keyboard.

HABS jj said something about that in the active store game about me.

Safety vote for 4wheels

I thought it was you it was said about bit wasn't sure so didn't wan't to say for sure. Not sure if I want to join a majority or not, so will stay away from jumping on Yuffie's vote for now. I doubt in a game that took only a couple hrs to fill we will have any inactive and therefore mandatory firings to cover us. I don't want to be a lemming early on

I'll take a random stab in the dark and go for Skybet.

I like the sound of rain the best.

Due to the round taking quite a while to get started, I think it might be a player who doesn't come on too often. As such I think I will go for 4wheels.

Can't really recognise anything characteristic in the memo as of yet.

EDIT: There are two sounds I love equally; one being the pitter-patter of raindrops on the roof of a tent, the other being the profound and enveloping silence you experience when standing in the midst of a heavy snowfall in light wind, when the world just seems to stop.

I don't know if that will tell us much. I am pretty sure that Rhy had the memo for a while as the told us all exactly when the round was going to start. I could of course be wrong (it has been known to happen on occasion).

While I could list multiple sounds I enjoy, I can't really think of one I hate. Chewing? - yeah if it is the loud smacking, chewing with your mouth open kinda sound. Normal chewing doesn't bother me so much.
Buu - are you saying you like or dislike bagpipes? To me it depends on how they are being played. When I was younger there was a kid who lived a few streets away and played the bagpipes. Some days you could hear it quite well from our place. When he first started lessons, I think the entire spinsterhood hoped they'd move. But as the months (years) went on, it began to sound really good.
The sound I think I most hate is nails on a chalkboard.

well. the question was a sound i love. and so i wrote bagpipes. that means i like bagpipes. duh.

edit: habs. i believe you are answering the wrong question. we are supposed to be answering the alternate psych question, which is the sound we love the most.

Ahh yes HABS, I didn't see that, you're right.

Will keep my vote as it is for a random one this round anyway.

Hmm, I know in a smaller game that trying for a majority early on is less safe (less mandatories) but I still feel that's the best way to get any answers... So, for that reason I'm switching my vote from 21Kaldridge21 to 4Wheels. (Not for any specific reason, it was just a tossup between 4Wheels and Skybet, so I'm willing to change should the majority change)

VOTING SO FAR:

21kaldridge21 - 4Wheels
Skybet - 4Wheels
Yuffie - 4Wheels

4wheels - Skybet
jeminy - Skybet

buu441 - SirHar

chunnie - Buu441

I think the "duh" part is a little uncalled for. I KNOW what the alternate question was - but look at other posts - several people also answer a sound they dislike. As you didn't stipulate which you were answering, and not a lot of ppl appreciate the bagpipes, I was just asking for clarification.

edit: habs. i believe you are answering the wrong question. we are supposed to be answering the alternate psych question, which is the sound we love the most.

If you want to be ignorant and condescending with the "duh" you laid upon me - well then double duh-uh-uh I DID answer that question. I was the SECOND one to answer it (right after Yuffie). I just did an addendum, to also add sounds that I don't enjoy so much.

LOL Yuffie I didn't declare my vote you are correct, but I did vote right away and my plan to stay away from a majority apparently won't work since my random vote was for 4wheels. I will however stick with it just to get the clear. And as others joined me unknowingly in the vote, perhaps it was meant to be that way.

Switching to 4wheels, only for the sake of increasing the majority.

For the record, I do not believe 4wheels is the boss. Not one bit.

UPDATED LIST

21kaldridge21 4Wheels
chunnie 4Wheels
HABS2933 4Wheels
Skybet 4Wheels
Yuffie 4Wheels

4wheels Skybet
jeminy Skybet

buu441 SirHar

SirHar Yuffie

glowingredbob NO VOTE STATED

5/9 stated votes are for 4wheels. Unfortunately this gives us a lot of potential lemmings but not enough votes to clear her. Bob will most likely be a mandatory firing which puts only one of us up on the chopping block. I'm willing to play those odds so will stay with my vote.

1 out of 5 chance doesn't sound so bad. Let go with it.

Just want to make sure everyone understands where I came up with that number. In a 10 player game in round 1 there can be two firings if Bob is one that only lets the boss fire one additional player. If 5 of us are lemmings (the only ones allowed to be fired) then we have a good chance of making it through the round.

Wheels is oddly quiet AND a chick ...so I will join the majority...If I get fired look at the females!!!!!I am going on a limb here a bit....But no dude would say I hate the sound of chewing....Habs you are on my list...as the no caps and no punctuation is a ploy I used to do when the boss...and I got a feeling you are a lot like me....

switching my vote to 4wheels...

one more thing to remember rookies....a stated vote is just that...therefor Habs I always think of it as (in a 10 player game)...rat and wolf stating majority....1 liar...therefore a clear would take at least 7 votes...
just sayin.....



the stronger the fed govt gets the less you free you will be,,,,This is a no brainer...

Exactly what I meant by 5/9 not being enough to clear anyone as it is not necessarily a majority.

Funny I originally had the fact you'd comment about stated votes meaning nothing in my post but changed it.
I know we can't rely on people to vote how they say they would.

I tend to look for those who justify joining a stated majority....I am goung back to Yuffie as not to be a leming and she is my top suspect

Don't you say that EVERY game? Plus, Jeminy admitted to hating the sound of chewing & he's male so...

I don't really have much to add... It sucks to have a mandatory but it's good that only one active player will be fired.

Actually, I voted, I just had to run. I voted for SirHar. Sorry for not saying, I had to be somewhere at 9 and I woke up at 8:57. And was gone the whole day. Sorry. But at least I voted!

Sarcastic is the one word that defines me.
