Just getting caught up after a few hours in meetings.

I wrote it with her full name because that's how it's appeared on her books at least as long as I've been aware of her. "Lois Bujold" would just look wrong to me.

Ever since you found her on Google when researching for this game, you mean!

We don't know how he does it. But can he manage not only that but also beating the crap out of his rivals, The Bus and orangecrush18, as well as winning the trophy this round?

Let's find out."
I don't like corndogs, but that is otherwise a surprisingly accurate description.

He may have you confused with Thor.

That Crichton Equalizer question completely saved my ass.

Thanks to The Bus for running this. As always, tons of fun.

Don't confuse me with facts, I have no time for them.

Congrats to JasonF for finally breaking through
The equalizers killed me, I think I lost 30 points on them

My mostly bad reverse-sheep answers in this game should be proof enough I didn't google anything.

I don't visit the Book Forum for a couple of days, and I miss a sheep thread.

After seeing a Firefly question in the Book Sheep thread, I assume that there will be a John Updike question in the Television Sheep thread.

For the record, though I applaud you for creativity and originality, I really really HATE the equalizer questions. It's a crapshoot, literally, as the players don't know if they should go with the flow or march to their own drummer.

I would like to allow players to submit TWO answers for equalizers if they want.... one if they're a sheep, one if they're not.

Re: Book Talk (Reverse) Sheep The Rise and Fall of the Sheep Empire

kenbuzz, that gets rid of the whole point of Equalizers. I'm still tweaking them, and I will try something else in a future game. We'll see how the Equalizers turn out in this week's Sports Sheep installment.
