I understand your point. It probably wasn't the best phrased question.
The nice thing about Reverse sheep as a game is that the leader can fall pretty far with any given question. So, a single question will probably not keep you from winning/placing high. I also don’t complain about Bus’ decisions because he obviously puts a lot of effort into these games and we all get a good time out of them. He also tends to be pretty fair.

It's my fault on the misspelling. I checked grundlepedia and it was written as inalienable.

If Rockmjd23 actually answered "Masshole" that should be considered a wrong answer.

I thought the whole point of the game was to argue about the correct answers?

As far as I'm concerned, I have 0 points.

He did not, Tracer. I just didn't feel like typing the whole word.

Question 3: Name a state carried by McCain in the 2008 presidential election.

"Why do we play the game? To win the game."

Though, if you want to keep a separate score sheet, go for it

Seriously though, I was originally thinking along the lines of you and Red Dog, but knew he was looking for the 1 of 3. I think it is like in High School when you know what your teacher is looking for, you don't agree with it, but you give them what they want anyway because you want a good grade. It is clear that you and Red Dog where the types to argue with the teacher until they gave you the grade you deserved.

I am going to assume I got negative points for this one.

Whatever, this first question has already left a bad taste in my mouth about the whole thing.

I was sold on the fun aspect too - arguing, since the answering of these questions wasn't as fun as the regular sheep one. Now nobody cares to argue with me.

...sinking like a stone here. I can't believe Pharoh answered Idaho too. Everyone forgets Idaho exists.

Re: Politics & World Events (Reverse) Sheep, Round 2 — Electric Obama-Loo

I've done this before and I'll do it again: Until 1PM EDT, I will allow votes taken on how "right" or "wrong" Tracer Bullet's, Red Dog's, etc. answers were for Question 1. At that point, if we get enough votes to "overturn" the vote, then I will update the scores.

These were the unique answers this time around:

Azerbaijan (Birrman54)
China (Mordred)
India (maxfisher)
Lady making toilet, very nice! (JasonF)
Lebanon (missflores)
Malaysia (belboz)
Maldives (Rockmjd23)
Mongolia (Pharoh)
Myanmar (frenchy)
Nepal (DSC4)
North Korea (Jason)
Oman (Venusian)
Russia (Funkpie)
Tajikistan (Red Dog)
Turkey (Jeremy517)
Vietnam (arminius)

Everyone else, begin quaking in your boots.

So did I. Then I remembered the Stans and figured that was fertile ground.
