Think Different 188: Sheep Descending

Post by Vanya » Thu Apr 17, 2014 3:59 pm

I am posting this early because I am in the middle of moving and I don't know when I will have internet access again.

Welcome to Think Different 188: Sheep Descending.

Image

Possibly NSFW
[spoiler]Image[/spoiler]

Think Different is a game that has entertained monarchs and muzhiki alike for centuries.

The goal is to give a correct answer to each question that you think few others will. Points are given for the number of people who give the same answer as you. Incorrect answers will score the sheep (most common) answer, plus a number of points related to how many people enter the game. Low score wins the game.

Do not research your answers. Answers should come from solely from your own knowledge.

Do not post your answers in this thread. Send them to me, Vanya, in a PM. Deadline for entries is 12 noon PDT, Wednesday April 30.

Many thanks to DadofTwins for the scoring system for this game. You may drop (not answer) as many questions as you want, or no questions. For each question you drop, the number of possible answers, multiplied, will be added to your score. For example if you drop questions 3 and 4, 90 (9X10) points will be added to your score. If you were to drop only question 4, 9 points would be added to your score.

You may discuss strategy in this thread, without mentioning any possible specific answers, of course.

Questions in the next post.

How strict are you going to be about the spellings of people's names? As long as it's phonetically possible?
Teems with quiet fun.

I was going for spice name, but if people want to submit the real name, I will group them together to maintain the 5 possible answers.

For #5, are you only referring to the Division I tournament?

I know who wasn't picked when I asked roughly the same question for one of my TD's. I wonder if that will hold.

Bump. Since the quizmaster is in the middle of moving, and might not be able to, bumping; I really enjoyed entering this TD, and bumping in the hopes others enjoy too.

What does this mean: "Incorrect answers will score the sheep (most common) answer, plus a number of points related to how many people enter the game"? What is the relation?

The more people that enter, the higher the penalty will be. Maybe like 1/6 of the the number of people entering.

I am back online, btw. Will get to your PMs soon.

Vanya, I'm assuming the answer to my question upthread is yes?

Absolute proof that less is more:



But more entries in this TD are needed.

Even the greatest thinks different. Won't you join him?


ETA: After I moved (no internet for 5 days), and had my internet reconnected, it worked for 24 hours, then quit for 3 days. So the deadline will probably be extended.
