My apologies for failing to submit a psych question.

BRAINGLE TIME IS CENTRAL TIME CURRENTLY.

Anyways, the first sales pitch is this:

sell me a mole of rubber bands. (6:30 PM Braingle Time - 8:30 PM Braingle Time) (no convincing arguments, no points)

Second task:

Sell me a pair of visibly broken headphones (9 PM Braingle Time - 1 AM Braingle Time) (winner: eighsse, 1 point)

Third task:

Sell me an egg flavored ice cream (1 AM Braingle Time - 8 AM Braingle Time) (winner: kmrutledge, 1 point)

Fourth task:

Sell me a single molecule of oxygen. (8 AM Braingle Time - 11 AM Braingle Time) (winner: Jayo, 1 point)

Fifth and final task:

Sell me an invisible pen (will be checking on this one to make sure no one cheats) (3:30 PM Braingle Time - 6:30 PM Braingle Time) (winner: SaraGrace, 1 point)


eighsse: 1 point
kmrutledge: 1 point
Jayo: 1 point
SaraGrace: 1 point

alright alright..... now this isn't any rubber bands these ones never brake. Use them for hair, paper, or around your arm. It is colorful and it has has lotions in the bands. It makes your hair smooth and your skin smooth.

Vote for Hermy which is subject to change.

When you say a mole, do you mean rubber bands containing one mole of atoms, or Avogadro's number of rubber bands?

The first is the only to ever have been the only.

Okay. Here is my theory: max was a mandi. lillyPad7891 was the rat. Result: hermygranger123 is not clear. What we should do next: let's get a majority on hermy.

Correction: can tell you. But you'll just have to wait until next round to find out...

Time extension on this one due to misunderstanding of question. Will go to 9 PM Braingle Time. I mean Avogadro's number of rubber bands.

But if you see my post from last round, you can see my theory on who the rat is.

Here's a list of who I think may be cleared, depending on if they are telling the truth.

kmrutledge (iamsam4)

@hermy yeah. took me five hours, but I got past it. I'm playing again, and beating the teapot again. So far I've been battling it for an hour and its down to 130k HP. I have the scythe, merchant hat, knight's body armor (NOT enchanted), red gloves, and rocket boots equipped. I used 1 cloning potion at the start. Oh, and my attacks are 60% more powerful because of chocolate bread. And I have a xenopherydon claw.

Okay. Here's an explanation:

You guys are doing your best job to persuade me to buy a product. If I'm not persuaded by anyone's argument, no points will be given for that question.

@sara I'm a guy. Why do I want smooth hair or silky skin?

No points for the rubber bands. Who wants lotion in their newspaper? And with a mole of rubber bands, you really don't need rubber bands that never break.

These headphones are broken. I'll admit it. So why should you buy them from me? Because they are a work of modern art. This piece symbolizes how reason so often falls on deaf ears in our technologically advanced, ethically challenged, "politically correct" day and age. It cost me $24.95 in supplies, and took a grueling 45 seconds of effort -- 60% longer than the average work of modern art!

This. This is what I want to see. Well done on setting the bar, eighsse!

Voting list:

Jayo-hermygranger123
Saragrace-hermygranger123
sciencesteven-hermygranger123


hermygranger123-SaraGrace

lissiclown-?








I have a feeling that SaraGrace might be the boss, because there are some grammar and spelling mistakes in the memos and Sara has quite a few in her posts. I think we should get a majority on her if not this round, then definitely next round since I see that you guys have already started a majority on me.

Edit: Sorry for such a large space, but I want to separate it from the voting list.

Edit 2: SaraGrace, the mod can reveal when the rat is out, but it isn't as fun.

Edit 3: Accidentally wrote mole instead of rat since I'm watching The Mole right now.

I voted for hermy! I have voted him every round now and still haven't been fired. I really think he is the boss. Suspicion is in my post from last round.

For the third task @extremeblueness:
Egg Ice Cream is the newest flavor of ice cream around! Although the name may throw you off, this tastes nothing like an egg, but only looks like it. The outside is whipped cream, the part below that is vanilla ice cream, and the inside is yellow snow ice cream! Try it! It is one of the best around!

EDIT: experimenting with colors.

Okay. Eighsse pretty well convinced me on the headphones. Aside from that, he had the only argument. kmrutledge had an agument for the ice cream that made me willing to try it. But she had the only argument. One point each for eighsse and kmrutledge.

Darn it just woke up. I went to bed before the opening, and I had my alarm set for 30 minutes before the closing, but when it went off, I was like "Eh forget it." xD

This molecule of oxygen is not just any molecule of oxygen. It is a molecule of oxygen-15. It is radioactive. You can even use it for one of your positron emission tomography tests. Oops! It's gone. It was gone by the time I started talking. But if you decide to buy, I will give you a new one at that time.

This pressurized container holds the very last breath of Einstein!! Captured for posterity by his faithful assistant at the moment of death using a previously unheard of technique, it was later condensed into it's constituent parts in a controlled environment and this single preserved molecule of oxygen, in a non-reactive special compartment is the very last essence of this great man. It may be the singularly most significant molecule in the world today.

There seems a good chance of a solid majority this round so will add my vote to Hermy

Well have do people always steal your pen? Well.. here is the answer and invisa-pen! Oh you have never heard of the INVISA-PEN? OH NO!!!! You have never lived then... well as a young child people always "barrowed my pens" but now nobody knows that I have pens. these are the greatest ever Now I know what your thinking I can just go buy a more pens.. NO!!!You may realize that an invisible pen may save your life.. What if I said write one letter on this page or you go to prison if you have that invisible pen you are prepared because nobody has stolen it and I would never have expected it and now you don't go to prison and I do. So go buy an invisa-pen today!!

( Invisa- Company is not responsible if you cant find your pen because you can see it or if you stab yourself with it)

The invisible pen, there are many reasons to buy these, so here are just a few of them!

1) When used in conjunction with the cloak of invisibility, you can create a genuine ghost-graffiti effect

2) When modified to replicate the effect of James Bonds' pen from 'Never Say Never Again', to shoot peas, you have yourself an untraceable weapon of minor destruction

3) You can fool your friends to make them think you have ink in your fingers by holding the pen at the very bottom and writing on the page

4) If you buy this pen in the next 20 minutes, it comes with a free head of cabbage

I suppose this could be a way to cheat, if the edit happened after the closing time, or if it happened after another player posted his answer. But in this case neither of those things are true. But that is something to be on the lookout for!

By the way, if we're REALLY playing for the team, none of us who have a point already should be posting an answer to the last one. That way, 3 or 4 of us will ALL get the clue, instead of just one. Jayo, I love your answer, but maybe you should erase it... Just my opinion.

No one has been cheating. Its just that the invisible pen is one that has actually been asked at interviews, so I'm checking for cheating on this one. It was just to dissuade anyone who's heard of the invisible pen question to use someone else's response.

Anyways, I'm going to have a very hard time deciding between sara's and jayo's arguments. Will announce results by 10 PM Braingle Time.
