No thanks to Karl Marx, who has thwarted me yet again

Assuming it's like in Video Game Talk, your answer has to correctly fit the question.

Yeah when you answer wrong in reverse sheep, you end up getting one point higher than the answer most given. (lowest score wins)

Thank you Bus. These are always very fun and you do a great job running them.

Reverse Sheep is even more fun because then we also get to debate whether people's answers are actually incorrect, meaning they get penalized.

Yeah like if, say, someone follows the rules as stated to get bonus points only to later have them rudely taken away?

Hmm...how about "Name a band that has at least 3 songs in Rock Band that is known for political music?"...or maybe "Name Obama's favorite Goldeneye character?"

Would you rather have Speaker Pelosi ride you bareback wearing black leather chaps only with a riding crop and no knowledge of the safe word

or...

Have your face be Rush Limbaugh's seat during his radio show after he has consumed a breakfast Hot Pocket, 3 steak burritos, and a large can of Van Camp's baked beans?

Re: Politics & World Events Sheep, Round 1 A Forum Game

I guess the bright side of coming in last is that I can say with little uncertainty that the American education system failed to do its job. To think of all the effort and money squandered training me to think, talk, and act like everyone else.

Thanks for the game, Bus, very entertaining.

I care and I do make comments once in awhile -- it's just sad that the info in his CAGW posts is rarely presented to the masses.

For those of you who did not do well in this round, remember, you're going for the LOWEST score this time around. So Tracer Bullet, you should do very well!
