Submitted. #24 gave me problems though. I couldn't think of anything recent. I'm probably looking at 0 points for that one.

I agree. I was going through a list in my head and had to go to like #4 or 5 before I got a "right" answer.

You should have put Batman Begins. That way you would have at least matched with Groucho.

I was going to enter, but answering these questions without a spreadsheet is fucking annoying.

I'm not sure how I got a rep as "guy who hates TDK". I don't think I've ever said a bad thing about the film.

Re: Everything Sheep Round 1 - Presented by Google!

It hasn't affected anyone's answers yet, but I figured I would add a clarification to the Video Game Console question. If it can play by itself, it is a console. If you need to connect it to another console to make it play, it is an add-on. I figured I would get that in there so there's no argument about it.

I've also decided to add right now as the cut-off time for dead celeb threads. It also doesn't affect any submitted answers, but I figured that it wouldn't be fair to people who answered already for random new threads to start up.

TracerBullet, I am making a spreadsheet now. I should have it up soon.

Edit: Half-assed spreadsheet is up.

Haha I just realized how dumb it was to not have a cutoff date.

Anyways, I cleared my inbox. (I didn't even know there was a 30-message limit. I've gotten like 3 PM's in 5 years here). Feel free to resend if it didn't work.

If you sent me a pm but your name isn't listed, resend, I didn't get it.

40 players so far and 5 need to clarify various answers because they either left them blank, weren't specific enough, or I have no clue what they are talking about.

Re: Everything Sheep Round 1 - Presented by Google!

For question #7, do people understand that if an individual member of a group won a grammy, and not the whole group, then answering the group would be incorrect, right? Going through the answers, the most popular answer is actually an incorrect answer. Feel free to fix it, people

I have to say there are some really bad answers given by people who aren't reading the questions right. People that are sheep regulars, too.

Is it me? Because I'm not too proud to redo my submission if I've screwed up.

I haven't checked yours yet. It's mostly people that aren't paying attention to years, decades, etc. I recommend everyone doublechecks their answers. The time to change is running out.

Re: Everything Sheep Round 1 - Presented by Google!

Regarding clarification for my #9 answer. Anything I say will be a guess without cheating. Since it's Sheep anyway and nothing is technically incorrect, I would like to leave it the same. If you insist, I will PM back with a shot in the dark guess. But I'm more likely to match with what I said already

#9 is actually a Reverse sheep question, so you'd be better off taking a guess. You can't do worse

Wow, what a senior moment. I have no idea why I thought it was sheep. I'll send something soon.

Re: Everything Sheep Round 1 - Presented by Google!

I'm having fun with a scaled down sheep game that I am running on another (smaller) forum. I'm deliberately framing questions so that lazy readers will mis-read them.

My best one was

"Name a famous (or infamous) prison."

I got several responses of "Obama".

Tomorrow is my only day off until next Saturday so I will most likely start and complete it all tomorrow.
