Assuming you are observing the order of operations: 100 + 365 * 1957 -885 = 713520

They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore.

Correction, 365 is the year Jin Fei became emperor, he was born in 342, so: 100 + 342 * 1957 -885 = 668509

They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore.

Wow Gizzer, great job.

Blue Team holds immunity for this round. The boss is not permitted to fire (unless they are on the mandatory list for not voting):

Wow, gizzer, you got that fast! I'm impressed.
Gizzer

 Posted: 07:59PM Apr 14, 2008

Now we discuss who to vote for, of course! The best way to catch the Boss is for everyone to honestly declare for whom they are voting.

I will be voting for liger - basically a fish vote with a little timing thrown in for good measure.

Doh. I couldn't be online this afternoon and was afraid it would start before I could catch the trivia. Nice job Gizzer.

What would Scooby Doo?

I was offered to be a quizmaster because there was a mini-shortage of those eligible to become one. It was to help get quizzes reviewed within the 1-week goal from the time when the quizzes are first submitted.

 Posted: 08:54PM Apr 14, 2008

no probs Princess, I think perhaps we should vote for someone who is on the blue team? If we can get a majority and hope for inactives to be fired then we will have cleared someone of being the boss. This is usually a great first round strategy if their are inactives that will get fired and save our own skins!

I will go with gizzer for her great effort, she deserves to be cleared first round.

That's cool. I'm a little bit jealous. I have the six month requirement. I just need to improve my quiz corrector grade a bit.

Dare I say that the colors are a bit feminine? Stereotypical, I know. But we have nothing to go on. I'll fish sweetmama because she's so insane.

What would Scooby Doo?

I'll fish vote Scubee. Can someone start a voting list?

I can't right now. If no one does by my lunch break (3 to 4 hours from now), I'll make one.

jervis

 Posted: 08:16AM Apr 15, 2008

Sorry Gizzer I do that a bit! SHE deserves to be cleared!
Now with currently 8 people who havent voted we should not waste the opportunity to vote as a group. None of us will be fired if there are enough inactives. If we dont get a 50% majority on someone then the round is wasted. If we dont get to clear someone and only inactives get fired then we dont get any information at all from the round. So who is with me here?? Does it make sense?

OK so who do we have voting:
Purple Team
J279 -------------------- jervis
Liger1997
SpanshDST

Blue Team (has immunity)
Gizzer ------------------ scubee
Writer_fighter
Sazza_7

Red Team
Ppjones ---------------- scubee
Ltblupngn -------------- gizzer
Scubee ----------------- sweetmama

Cyan Team

Harmony_Girl --------- scubee
Sweetmama

Olive Team

i will change my vote to scubee.
Scubee

 Posted: 08:25AM Apr 15, 2008

I'm all for clearing me in the first round. I'd even be willing to vote for myself.

What would Scooby Doo?
Gizzer

 Posted: 08:31AM Apr 15, 2008

Since I can't be fired for being in a majority, I will change my vote to Scubee this round.

Scubee, you shouldn't vote for yourself if the majority is voting for you. If there are not enough inactives, you could be easily fired and we would gain nothing.

They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore.
ppjones

 Posted: 08:35AM Apr 15, 2008

I would hope in a locked game we would not have three inactives but that is definitely the way to go, the entire blue team should vote for Scubee (immunity). I will join the festivities and vote for Scubee.

We need 8 votes to be completely sure (in case the rat votes for the boss).

The reason Gumby isn't smiling is because Deb is keeping him captive against his will.

That part was in jest Giz.

Which is why, as ppjones says, we need 8 votes to be sure, ie Rat-Proof.

 Posted: 09:10AM Apr 15, 2008

currently we have 2 people who have not logged in at all yesterday. So chances are there are at least 2 inactives for this round... still pretty safe.
j279

 Posted: 09:36AM Apr 15, 2008

Thanks, jervis, you're awesome. Now I don't need to make a list!

Just to repeat what Gizzer mentioned earlier, we need everyone to post who they are voting for, I really hope we don't have 7 inactives in the first round.

We need one more vote for Scubee, to clear him.

I'll go for Scubee too, then. It's a shame only 1/3rd of the immune team appears to be around to vote...

When you move from getting caught up on your werewolf game to this, there's a brief "noooo, don't vote for me" moment to get past. My plan to play the hidden immunity idol at tribal council is working out perfectly!

I'd love to vote for Scubee, not because he voted for me, but because he called me insane. Such wild allegations, pffffft. However, I do not have immunity this round. By the way, great job on solving the first question, Giz. I'm going fishing this round, and voting for one of the quiet ones, because they always make me suspicious. SpanshDST for me.

I am going to vote with my team and go for scubee, I dont know if anyone knows but I have a lil health problem and will try to post and remain as active as I can being a canadian the 'eh' kind of caught my eye as thats a very common word here. also if they listed the colours in the ORDER they liked them the I would say purple being first would be a feminine choice.

LOL, Scubee, let me know if there is ever a survivor game on here I LOVE SURVIVOR! (no spoilers though please, we get the survivor tapes months later than it airs in the USA! Grrrrrr. )

Great job EVERYONE!!

Well it looks like we have 3 inactives and hopefully none of them are the boss or rat. So they will have been mandatory fired and scubee is off the hook! Thanks everyone for following good first round strategy. WOOHOO!
