Possibly the bonus would be equal to half of the most common, rounded down? So if the most common is worth -15 points, and your answer is worth -3 but is correct, then you get -10 points.

That should only be activated if the top answer is incorrect, though.

I think I thought that to myself but never actually put it into words. But yeah, I agree.

I think I'll try this out on Star Trek Round 2 after I finish TV Round 3.

If anyone matches me on a certain question, I will eat my hat.

I get the feeling The Bus wants to eat his hat. Maybe this is it...

Or maybe he just put a couple of really pathetic answers on sheep questions.

We can't help it if you're the only one who thinks the love child of Robert Byrd and Barbara Mikulski would be attractive.

S: On a scale of 1 to 10, equally weighing both physical beauty and character appeal, rank Sarah Palin. (0 = super ugly and super annoying, 5= annoying but equally fetching, 10 = red hot charachterista).
so is on a scale of 1 to 10
Spoiler:
... 0 is an acceptable answer? baa!

0 only indicates the direction of the spectrum.

I'm really glad I just answer the questions without reading these posts first.

As I always try to do as well.


I think question three is going to be wrong though.

Hopefully there's no Face the Nation type answer.

Thor: When are you hoping on running this? I'd like to run Sports Sheep Mon-Weds if possible.

Just saw when you wanted to start it. I will be done late morning your time (M/PDT) on Wednesday.

You're running it over 3 days?! What's wrong with you?

I'll be starting mine Wednesday morning sometime and running it straight through like JasonF did for the previous one.

I'll wait for Sports to finish as long as you're running on schedule. Good idea to coordinate.

It's 28 questions. It takes, on average, 3-4 questions per hour. I don't know if I'll start today (I probably will) and I don't know if I'll finish on Tuesday. I like to finish when people are around, not when it's late at night.

My head was about to explode after reading the rules and the questions on the latest Sports sheep. I like sports too, just not complicated rules.
