Welcome to Round 3!

Take all sorrow out of life and you take away all richness, and depth, and tenderness. The capacity of sorrow belongs to our grandeur. It is the furnace that melts hearts together in love. In loving memory of my dear friend Guy - take care Goobs . .

I'm guessing LH is cleared then presuming scrub locked in his vote and didn't lie about it.

Right so scrub was fired being in a MoO... How does that work when there were so many guam voters? Maybe he switched...

EDIT: surely that means guam is the boss??

So three were fired, two of which most likely mandatory.

Just so people know, I'm not the boss. Why does everyone think I am? The memos don't sound a thing like me, not to mention the fact that I barely know about any of that stuff. The way Habs diverted suspicion on me in the last round, makes me think she could be it (boss or rat). The round had barely started and already she singled me out as her top suspect. Looking over the past round, I'm the only she names as a suspect in the entire round. And that was mainly based on the fact that I had played in only 8 games. Just for the record, I was a boss once, but I lost that game after several rounds.

At this point, I am not sure as to who might really be the boss. Since not too many people have posted yet, I guess I shall have to wait until morning. As to my vote... Keeping it to Jayo, but subject to change. If the round is still going when I wake up in the morning.

Good night.

EDIT: Meant to hit the edit button, instead of the delete.

I don't see scrub lying about his vote or forgetting to do so, unless it just didn't save (has happened to me), so the LH clear is a fairly safe bet.

I still don't understand why it bothers you so much to be suspected? And yes your lack of games was ONE (though not the main) reason I brought you name up as a suspect. The boss seemed to me to be inexperienced, you fit. I also said I thought the boss must live in the US and be of a certain age in order to have watched the show in its original run.
You were just a random sort of semi fits my theory vote in the first round The way you reacted (and continue to react) to being voted is now more suspect to me than anything
However, I have also suspected Stewie a bit so I wil switch my vote to you if being voted for (which unless you are boss is not detrimental to you in any way), then I will move my vote.

BTW: were I the rat, I would be trying to convince others to vote in a particular manner,and when that didn't work, I'd change my 'vote' to someone more plausible. I have not pushed anyone else to vote for you nor have I, as you pointed out, voted for anyone else or tried to convince others to vote in any particular way.

Will vote STEW for now.

I'm thinking that Scrub may have forgotten to save his vote, that's easy enough to happen and all three murders were mandatories. If I am right, we are back where we started. I am going to be gone most of the day, my husband has a doctor's appointment in Buffalo this morning, so will post another safety for Elios for now. If I can catch wifi I'll be able to check in with my tablet, but won't be able to post a voting list, so hopefully someone else will do one.


Edit: Vote saved and confirmed

The way you are defending yourself is making you more suspicious. The clues point to you and considering you were only boss once, makes you a little more inexperienced like this boss is playing. I will place a vote for guamgirl.

Just dropping in to see how the firings went. Sorry to see we did, in fact, have two mandies.

Not sure I believe Scrub was also a mandatory, but I guess it could've happened if he went to change his vote from LH to Guam or Stewie. Guam didn't have enough votes for him to perhaps have been her Rat, right?

I'm holding my vote for right now.

Edit to add: I did a quickie voting list as requested (I'm working, too, but don't have much to do right now...) Please feel free to spice it up as needed.

I'm still a little bemused by the whole affair. Stewie must have been a mandatory, unless the boss got the pick of the MoO's because guam is the boss. I want to be more productive this round. Voting Elios.

Double for seperate thought.

Ok "Drones" as a prompt? I am at a loss. I do not know if Snow is talking about unmaneed aircraft, people who are brainwashed and do not think for themselves or what.....

I would have to say the boss stating they had to look this up but yet did not even comment on one of the most famous murders in Hollywood history, even with all the movies and such, one being as recent as in last few years starring Scarlett Johanson, is a bit odd and is not setteling well with me.

The comment about political in the memo is also interesting as I have done some reading on "Drones" and a very popular search has to do with the UK and their use of drones as in unmanned murder weapons.

EDIT to add:

The Rat
The Boss has an assistant. The Rat (whose identity is a secret from everyone) is loyal only to the Boss. The Rat's job is to divert suspicion away from the boss. If the Rat wishes to survive the entire game, he or she will need to keep the Boss happy. Be very careful who you trust!

The Rat can hack into the network and see who you voted for. The Rat may use this information to protect the Boss, but due to company policy, the Rat must keep specific voting results private. Instead of voting, the Rat must hack into the network at the end of each round to get the voting information. If the Rat fails to hack the network before voting ends, the Boss will be allowed to fire the Rat for slacking off.

Possible Scrubb was the rat and did not hack system

Did you know: that the ocean holds nearly 20 million tons of gold but most of it is diluted. Each liter of seawater contains about 13 billionths of a gram. So there is enough gold on the sea floor to put 9 pounds in every pocket on Earth.

That's always possible. There's also this:

The Rules State:
If the Rat fails to protect the Boss, then the Rat may be fired. If the Boss receives 25% of the votes in a given round, the Rat will be listed on the firing list (by username) along with everyone else. If the Boss receives 33% of the votes in a given round, the Rat will be listed on the firing list as "the Rat".
25% of the vote last round would have been (rounded up) 4, and 33% would've been 5 (right? check my math - I was an English major ). We had 6 stated votes for Guam, so if Scrubb was Guam's Rat, he would've been on the possible firing list. I don't know why a Boss would knowingly fire their Rat so early on, though....

I agree with LH that the Boss looking up "drones" but no seeming to look up either of the other two prompts is strange. Maybe s/he actually has heard of drones in passing and was mildly interested, whereas the other two were completely foreign and s/he didn't care.

I'm going to place a vote for StewieGriffin, mostly to make sure I get a vote in and saved but also because I think we really, definitively, need to clear someone this round.

Edit: Vote saved and photographed.

We have a little less than half the round remaining and have yet to hear from 3 peeps.
4wheels, Jayo, and OC

I would think with so much time left in the round that they should be showing up soon.

ELIOS: I was thinking about the Rat/Boss vote ratio as well but negated to post it.
If Guam is the boss and Scrubb was the rat and Guam fired her rat knowingly that does not seem logical (in the words of Dr Spock), although....with not firing anyone in round one and suspicion comming her due to inexperience she might have went ahead for the kill to eliminate as many players as possible.......BUT, I think the most logical explintion is that all 3 were mandies since there would have only been a max of 2 players allowed to be fired optinally, including mandies in the count. Mandies are just that, mandies. They must be fired. The rat is an optional firing. With this being said my opinion is that all 3 were mandatoray firings.

@ Longhorn_fan: I'm starting to agree with the Scrubb as mandatory idea now. After realizing that Guam-Boss would have known she was firing her Rat, I saw that that would make no sense (I fired my Rat in my first Boss game, but that's b/c he was a putz and I could win without him lol!). This is just more reason why we need to find a common target to aim for so we can work around any mandatories (especially glitch mandies!!).

Assuming the 3 people listed as NO VOTE have not placed a vote and just not told us for whom they voted, we have 4 stated votes out of 9 voters so that is no enough for a clear even if we don't take into consideration the rat and boss as liars. We need 5 actual votes (7 stated votes) to be sure we have a clear majority.

With the 4wheels vote added in, we now have 5 stated votes out of 10 people voting. Stewie just said he was placing a safety vote but did not say for whom he was voting, but I think it is safe to assume he did not vote for himself.

We still need 2 more votes for Stewie to ensure a clear. (well to be confident of a clear anyway for as SirHar has pointed out we can never fully count on stated votes to guarantee a clear.

Thats what i said at the beginning of the round but everyone wanted to go after the rat.. where will that get us, seriously?? I figured we needed to get someone cleared so i went along with the rat thing. I think its to late this round to switch, but next round we should get a majority on guamgirl.

It is not that I was going for the rat. I was trying to work out if scrubb was rat or mandi.
I might be way off but I just do not feel Guam is the boss. I think the only thing her arguing the vote is her inexperience. In my opinion inexperienced players get anxious over being voted as they do not understand that all it does is clear them.

That is just my thought and like I said I could be wrong.
I am not sure getting any kind of majority this round is going to help...unless Guam is the boss since there is 2 poss man dies then we can not get a clear.

I'd say that Stewie is cleared but we still have no idea about Guam. Despite stating she would be back when she got up, she never did come back after her one and only post this round (24 HRS ago). Even that one post was a bit odd, she insiinuated she was going to bed (....when I wake up), according to the time stamp - it was posted at 5:30(ish) iin the morning here which is 8:30 in the evening in Guam. Most of us would have at least antoher hour or two of posts. .. .not sure jut ramblling
