I, (like every other person I knew at the time) was given a car when I got my license. It was a Nissan Micra. I only had it for a couple years. The first car I bought myself was a 10 year old Suzuki Sidekick (LOVED that vehicle - it was so much fun). I paid a buck for it and had it for about 2 years when I blew the engine on the side of the highway. After that I bought what would turn out to be one of the last cars I owned - a brand new Dodge Neon. I had that car for about 6 years until it was stolen. My parents then gave me one of their cars (2 year old Civic) until I could replace it, but I lost my license about 4 months after that so I never bothered.

I'm torn here between HP and Rhythmic but will again vote Rhythmic. I think the boss is male, but I don't think it's Smithy and I'm not exactly sure why, it just doesn't seem like it could be. He very likely could be the Rat, though.

My first car was a big old Oldsmobile (either a '56 or '57 I think) which at the time was the only car my parents would let me get because they though it was a safe car for me to drive. I think I had it for about a year before it totally gave out and I traded it in on a '59 Volvo. I loved that Volvo, drove it until after I was married and we finally purchased a new Ford Falcon.

I'm also thinking male, but thinking younger. The reference to "future goals" makes me think that perhaps the boss is not fully settled into adult life yet and though of course us old foggies have future goals as well, it just seems more like a younger person. The reference to pizza also makes me think it is someone younger.

Though I admire both my parents greatly and they were both highly successful in their work lives, and I got to reap the benefits of that a child, I was never interested in the paths they chose in life, nor would I consider either as my hero. I don't think I have a hero to be honest.

EDIT: I voted HP as my thoughts of a younger male eliminates Rhy from consideration. I have no definite thoughts regarding HP vs Smitty so will listen to Blondie about her belief that Smitty is not Boss.

My first car was a '79 Mercedes Benz named Stanley. My parents bought a new house and - no joke - the car came with the house. I was 17 and hadn't gotten my license yet (no real reason to), so Dad fixed the car up and gave it to me. I loved Stanley! 0 to 60 in about 5 minutes; slowed down if you turned on the AC; had water in his trunk; had to be plugged in on cold nights to keep his glow plug warm; sometimes wouldn't turn off even if you took out the key (had to trip the engine under the hood)... Good times! I had him for a couple of years before he started to wear down. The next car I had was given to me for college: a '97 Toyota Corolla named Sachi. She was purple, and one of my best 'friends'. Lost her in an accident, unfortunately, but we had a great 6 years together. My third car was the first one I bought myself (and is my current car). He's an '02 PT Cruiser named Sai (also purple! haha!). He was my dream car, as I always wanted to own a purple Cruiser with a sunroof, and he's been a lot of fun. Unfortunately, he's starting to die pretty quickly, so I'm gonna have to retire him for my next one soon.

As to the Boss, I could agree younger male. Not saying a young lady wouldn't necessarily look up to her father and find him inspirational, but we don't seem to have any of those in the game anymore. (I love & respect my Dad, and he does work hard, but I never really felt inspiration from him in regards to my own plans.) I'll go with Harry, as well.

Okay, I'll join the HP vote, I really have no idea how old Rhythmic is, and I do agree our boss probably is young - er.

For the record, I'll be 40 this year.

I'll join in on the vote for HP as well. I'd say the boss is probably one of those that said they voted for oyehoy the first time: HarryPutter, Smithy, or Elios. Of course, I voted oyehoy as well, so there's that.

Oh, my first car was an '84 Ponitac Grand Prix which I promptly wrecked about a week after I got my license...in a race...through a residential area...

And this is why males pay more than females for insurance.

I guess I'll go smithy, I had a Buick when I was younger. Can't remember what year but it was a Lesabre.

I wonder why were wasting a round voting for the only cleared person but ok

Yeah the vote for Putter doesn't make a lot of sense to me, Har got fired voting for him and while we can't 100% clear putter it definitely reduces the probability of it being him.

Voting rhythmic because as others have said a male is more likely to have their father as their hero, and I know it's not me.

Oh shoot, I forgot about the potential clearing of HP. Guess I should switch my vote. Going on the "younger" male, though I don't know how old Smitty is, I think he is younger than Rhy, so will vote him.

HarryPutter is only clear if SirHar actually voted for him. If Har's vote didn't save or for some reason was on someone else than Putter could be boss. However, I'll switch my vote to Smithy

Voting with just under 17 hours left.

HABS2933 - voting for Smithy
Rhythmic - voting for Smithy
HarryPutter - voting for Smithy


Smithy - voting for Rhythmic


Elios - voting for HarryPutter
bradon182001 - voting for HarryPutter


I think votes should be consollidated on Smithy or myself. Either way,I'll probably leave my vote where it is and I would assume Smithy wouldas well.

EDIT: I missed HarryPutter's stated vote...

HP stated a vote for Smitty Rhy. IT is a few posts above your last one.

That's why I asked the question about Har and his voting for who he actually stated he voted for.



bradon182001 wrote::

Does Har always vote as he says he is voting?.


HABS2933 wrote:



I don't know if he does or not. I would however not put it past him to vote contrary to what he says. He has said on numerous occasions that you "'can't clear anyone based on stated votes" indicating that he assumes ppl are lying about who they are voting for. I can see him stating one thin then doing another.

I am willing for now to assume that Harry is indeed cllear (at least for now). .


By your own comment, we can't even "assume" that Har voted for HP.

Yes, that is true. Funny you pointed that part out but failed to also mention that I stated that I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that he is clear for now. Have we found a rat in our midst perchance?

No HABS, I'm not the rat, I was just pointing out that the fact that Har said he voted for HP and my experience with him is he usually does exactly the opposite of what he says. Also, you said "assume" and "for now". So, your post above kind of surprised me, especially in a 10 player game with limited rounds to find the boss, when you seemed to now believe that HP couldn't be the boss. If something has changed, then please explain.

Anyhow, I'm leaving my vote on HP and if I get fired, then we will know for sure he is cleared.

This split vote isn't particularly helpful, but there's no point me switching to vote myself.

Just realised I forgot to answer the psych. As I mentioned earlier, I only passed my test just before Christmas, so I'm yet to get a first car... any suggestions?
