Re: Futuramafia — Day 6: Jerkwad robots make me sick to my ass!

I'm a bit worried about what the scum would do in such a situation... I think if we focus on deculting (which will turn culted scum back into scum) then the scum are likely to target townees instead of cult and gain the upper hand. I agree that lynching cult when we can decult and they can no longe...

Re: Futuramafia — Day 5: Ugh, I am one hungover cryogenicist.

I'm going to agree with Vector Zero and ameretrifle that given the possibility that NAR is a jesterbomb, lynching him is extremely foolish.

Since Master_Ralh22 was cult, we should probably look at his posts for hints as to who else might have been.
