Re: Unlikely Superheroes (Day 2)

Bessie, I'm on record as thinking that BoomFrog should be today's lynch, and would vote for him were he not at L-2 already. This is strange, as if jimbob didn't look at the overall picture, just considering each element separately from the rest That's how I tend to do these kinds of reads, when unde...

So you did have a guess to his role on D1, long before he made his “snooped on what dimochka was up to” tracker comment. This might be a phrasing issue. When I said "at least", I meant I had a guess about the negative aspect, but that might not be all to the role. I've not got through all...

However, his claim does rule out a few scenarios at least, relating to freezeblade's results being m...
