CHALLENGE LISTING
Riddle\Random
Solve the following. Send your answer to me in a PM with "WTB" somewhere in the subject. First place wins 10 points, second place wins 5 points, third place wins 2 points. After that is one point.

At a movie theater, the manager announces that they will give a free ticket to the first person in line whose birthday is the same as someone who has already bought a ticket. You have the option of getting in line at any time. Assuming that you don't know anyone else's birthday, that birthdays are distributed randomly throughout the year, etc., which position in line gives you the greatest chance of being the first duplicate birthday?

This Challenge lasts until the end of Round 5.
Keyword Challenge #2
If any player posts a valid post with the secret Keyword in it, he or she will win a free item! The word is a potentially everyday word. (So, it's not 'hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia'.) Word lists do not count. The word must be found in a sentence inside a valid post. This has a good history of promoting activity, so let's see some interesting stories! (Update: remember that the post does not have to be about the game. Also, any tense of the word will work as well [*-s, *-ing, *-ed, *-like, etc. will all do.) This Challenge lasts until the end of the game.

POINTS AND INVENTORIES..........Updated Friday, 20:58 EDT.
Allikat73126 = 13
braingle01 = 13
faheem1 = 9
hermygranger123 = 6 (FIRED)
huckingfoes = 3
Jayo = 8 (FIRED)
Kaipper = 12
max318 = 18
scrub88 = 7 | 1/2 of Miracle Reagent (FIRED)
TallGuy = 27
TheLegend = 1 | Employment Insurance, Clawshot

THE BOSS = 31 FP (asteroidbelt = 2, checkndone = 3, divarenee = 3, Flutterdash = 3, Thekid4 = 2, Coolnine9 = 7, dcf525 = 2, kitty-cat = 0, themasterbrain = 1, hermygranger123 = 5, Jayo = 3, scrub88 = 0)

In the previous round, the Boss earned 9 - n, where n is the number of valid posts a fired player made.
In this round, the Boss will earn 11 - n.

Okay looking at people left.
Psych questions seem like an american kid(i am leaning towards female right now) High school Only economy I can find that got worse after 1990.
list of employees that fit:
huckingfoes
alikat
And me but I still think the boss is female
Kaipper is cleared due to firing so
I am leaning toward huckingfoes
Look at her username
koopa troopas are foes and you huck them(throw)
not even sure what the other clue points to
That is it for proof so I am chaing my vote to huckingfoes

I think I found something.

For hint #1:

There is a band called "spirit cat tapes" and they created a song called 'trails - koopa troopas' on an album virgin dads IV

for hint #2:

The google dictionary defines vicious as: (of an animal) Wild and dangerous to people.

Alley Cats.

I'm going to vote for alikat this round

TallGuy, an alley cat is not dangerous. It may be wild(Edit: Since it's homeless), but not dangerous.

come to think of it, max truly does fit the profile.

teenager: concerned about education and future, reads high school fiction

male: walking dead enthusiast

plus he has extensive knowledge on all the clues mentioned

changing vote to max

Except for the round 4 memo cleared Jayo and me go to scrubbs explanation in round 4 about how I was cleared

How about this
We have 2 rounds left. I do admit that I have allot of knowledge of the clues but how would the mod know that It's why I think allikat isn't the boss. Try as you will but good luck connecting me to all 3 clues. based of profile information.
I wonder if the mod is ROFL because we missed the easy answer of getting huckingfoes because the clues all point to foes(enemies)
Who said I was a walking dead enthusiast. Supernatural is so much better. At this point you know that famous saying "United we stand. Divided we fall" We are in that situation now. 2 or 3 people per round. I think we only have 2 rounds left guys so lets get a majority this round.
My biggest weakness would be that I would totally attempt to go as far as brutally maiming(not really I just hate them forever) someone who hates the zelda series
Now that I think about it, What if tallguy was the rat bought a rat trap for himself and solved it. clearing him of suspicion of being a rat so he could turn the tide for his boss huckingfoes but for now lets stick with allikat so we can get a clear going into next round
hmm jarmhi deleted a post. Might be a keyword
Rolling on the floor laughing just in case

is the rat allowed to buy rat trap himself? about max knowing all the clues.. i don't know. some people are good at solving, but i also see the person who clues point to don't know it's for themselves either.

Haha, thank you! It's been my profile picture for several years. It's sort of my trademark. In fact, I don't think I even have a local copy anymore.

For everyone else, I am here! Please excuse my delay. I volunteer at a collegiate radio station (WXUT-Toledo -- if you're a musician and want us to air your stuff, send it to us!) and we were looking at production pieces all day for a news program we're going to launch next term.
