I can't figure out if we're just more Sheepy here or if the questions just don't have as many right answers, but the difference between how people cluster here versus how they cluster in a Video Game Talk Sheep game is amazing.

I think it is both. It is harder to guess what gun in Halo others would pick. We know each other's political thinking a bit better here, so we all (should) know that France is the only right answer.

With a name like that, he should be considered British for the purposes of this game.

Orangecrush, I disagree with your answer, but I defend to the death your right to give it.

What Bus lacks in timeliness, he makes up for in presentation. This is fantastic stuff.

I really hope we can do a Reverse Sheep game. The leaders seem to change much more frequently.
