Apparently the boss needs to know what a logical fallacy is. Either that or they don't know logic. The psych question has been wrongly answered.

Anyways, this round, you will try to persuade me to things based on logical fallacies. As this is the last round, no clue will be given. However, you can still answer questions if you like. Each person's assigned topic is written below.

hermygranger: Prove that ice cream will bring about the apocalypse using nothing but logical fallacies. (solved. see new prompt in post made at 8:24 PM Braingle Time)
Jayo: Prove that the US Congress is useful using nothing but logical fallacies.
SaraGrace: Prove that Pac-Man exists in real life using nothing but logical fallacies. (solved. see new prompt in post made at 8:24 PM Braingle Time)
sciencesteven: Prove that exercise makes you fatter using nothing but logical fallacies. (solved. see new prompt in post made at 9:34 AM Braingle Time)

Points:

hermygranger123: 3 points
SaraGrace: 1 point
sciencesteven: 1 point

I will vote for Jayo. I voted for Jayo last round and I am still here! Or did we get a majority on him last round? If we got a majority on him last round, then Sara is the boss.

Exercising makes you tired. When you're tired, you want to eat. When you're trying to exercise, and you're tired, then you want to eat junk food. A lot.

I'm betting that lissi was a mandi. Great. Now Jayo isn't clear. My money is on Jayo.

EDIT: I removed a fake quote of Jayo saying that he is the boss.

I actually think that lissi was the rat and the boss got 33.3% of the votes if all of us voted differently, so that means either Sara or Jayo is the boss and I'm leaning towards Sara.

Oh and has Hermy been cleared because I really think we need to take out the boss. If the Hermy isn't cleared she is the boss and hey Steven lets take her out.

I will reread last rounds....

Ok Pac-Man is totally real because of the new magic of gaming. Now he is 5D! He really runs around your house eating dots and fruits. This is all possible with holograms.. Just place the 5D cameras all about your house... turn on your gaming system.. pop in Pac-Man and watch his come to life.

Okay. This is the last round. We have one rat, one boss, and two employees. The two employees need to figure out who's the boss and who's the rat, or the boss and rat win.

This isn't an advertisement round. Any and all evidence is supposed to be logical fallacies. You're supposed to convince me that something is true.

Good job, science. One point for one logical fallacy (slippery slope)

Here's sciencesteven's new prompt: Convince me that trees are candy using nothing but logical fallacies.

Hey, I just realized something. Sara normally agrees with who I want to vote for.
She wants to vote for hermy even though she's clear. She resists my reasoning that Jayo's the boss. My bet is on that Sara is the rat and Jayo is the boss. hermy, you need to vote for Jayo. If you vote Sara, we will lose.

Logical fallacy as I voted for you also


Well I need to look up stuff about the US Congress I suppose as I am Irish and know nothing really about them.
Steven, if you truly believe that I am the Boss and that those Memo's came from me then by all means, please vote for me, but I need to reread things to see where is the best place to leave my vote. If you really do have a vote and are wasting it then it doesn't matter who I vote for as Boss will win then, have to think about who the other employee is and then which of the remaining two is the Rat and Boss.

I am not the Rat either! Just before you resort to that

This is absolutely ridiculous and cannot see why an 'Employee' would do something so reckless - This leans me towards you being the Rat but I am not sure who for. Not 100% decided on where to go but this was the lamest thing I have seen on WTB and I have played a lot of games, been Boss a bunch of times (but not this time) and just don't understand where the fake quote play comes from and to what benefit it is.

Prompt: Ice cream will bring about the apocolypse.

Ice cream is made from ice and cream. During the ice age. no humans existed. So, ice cream means that no humans will exist.

Another reason I think Sara is the boss is that she didn't get the logical fallacy question at first, just like the boss.

Smiling uses more muscles. Using muscles is involved in exercising. Exercising is bad for you because when you're tired, you eat too much junk food and ice-cream and you'll be too fat to run during the Apocalypse.

Congress has power over financial and budgetary decisions. Well money is always useful and therefore the US Congress must be also




The Boss may have intentionally made a mess of the logical fallacy in the memo, or they genuinely thought that was one?

Voted Steven, again as I did last round.
My thinking is that if he was the Rat he would be more subtle and not resort to fake quotes to try to implicate someone.
I think he is frustrated with his Rat so is taking it into his own hands to spread as much confusion as possible, which also fits into the memo's and their garbled handling, especially if the logic mixup was intended

I think Steven is a better choice than Sara the way things have gone this round.

But I am aware he might be Rat so my vote isn't cast in concrete just yet

Your play is what has given the Boss the win in this one, it was ridiculous
You only helped the Boss
