Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

I've clarfiied the phrasing of Question #6. We're looking for a candidate, not a party. Almost everyone figured that out, but one of you just got a PM from me on this.

I introduced the sheep games to the taper board I frequent, and I did the same.

edit: you find out really quick how difficult it can be to run these games, especially for reverse sheep questions. thanks for putting it together.

Note that question 17 is looking for a leader (hint hint).

yes that's us, the folks who get to shows early, hush the crowd around us, and have more money invested in our gear bag than in our cars, the tapirs

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

Are there state matching bonuses based on a quadratic formula?

Yes. They are based on the formula ax^2+bx+c, where x is the number of times you matched a state in your answer and a, b, and c are all equal to zero.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

Just sent in my answers. All around very good questions. I really do like the option of google w/ penalty. I think multiplying the penalty could also add a nice element to the google strategy.

I'm planning to run results on Thursday and Friday. I'm in and out of meetings so much today through Wednesday that I won't have a chance to do anything before then.

Thursday and Friday work great here.

Tracer can hang out at my place to watch the results and I'm sure The Bus can trade Friday for a few weekends.

With about a day before the doors close, we have entries from the following players:

achau9598
chowderhead
CRM114
feenst
Fist of Doom
Flashback
funkpie
gmanca
Groucho
JasonF
Lunatikk
LurkerDan
maxfisher
Merkin Muffley
Mordred
Nick Danger
orangecrush18
Palaver
Pharoh
Red Dog
Rockmjd23
Scrumtrulescent
the big train
The Bus
Thor Simpson
Tommy Ceez

If your name is not on that list, you are not playing, and if you are not playing, you can't win. That makes you a LOSER -- unless you get your entries to me by tomorrow.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

What kind of judicial philosophy can we expect in dispute resolution? Living constitution Ginsburg? Weather-vane - poll the forum O'Connor? Textualist Scalia?
