### Re: Forassassins

The normal rule is that you can only assassinate your target. Without this rule, someone would just go on a rage and assassinate everyone. Also, yet, more people makes it work better. An easy way to see this is as follows: every time someone is killed, the game plays just as a new game, but with one...

New rule: no soul kicks. That... hurt. I feel like I'm going to cry. Instead, as compensation, I receive the Calvinball!

### Trigonometry

So I am normally not half bad at trigonometry, but I was taking a math contest sort of thing and got totally stumped by a problem. I am a little rusty because I am not taking a math class this year, but I feel like I wouldn't know how to solve this anyway. The problem is: Find the positive integer n...

Line 2 doth miss the end of its fifth iamb. Under Elizabethan Modification rules, any players that attempt to write in iambic pentameter yet fail must emancipate all carpetbags in their possession. We're free! In the language as written by Shakespeare, the "ed" suffix is pronounced as a f...

### Re: Maximize the post:views ratio! (if you look, you must post)

what if I can't think of anything to say? Then I accidentally viewed it, but cannot post. It is a bummer. That is probably why there are so much more views than posts (although the ratio is high)

oh I know! I can just talk about the Meta of this thread. wait... what?

### Re: Forassassins

so we have three signups so far. I don't know what number will work best for this game, but the more the merrier always works with this loose format. I figure signups should continue until everyone is chill with the rules and wants to start, and we aren't receiving new sign ups. There might not be a...

I invoke the bag trading rule! I give Deep Thought a sleeping bag in trade for the carpetbag . The rule states that you must except all trades of bags and baglike objects. I recommend sleeping in the sleeping bag, isn't there a rule about that? Anyways, I now have the Carpetbag. It also contains Act...

### Forassassins (between game discussion)

As in forum assassins! Assassins is a game where you have a secret target, and if you "kill" your target, their target becomes your target. This game was obviously developed for real life, but I think we should make a forum version. Here is how it would go: everyone interested posts in thi...

### Re: Electrolysis of Aqueous NaCl (Chemistry)

Yeah, that was my first guess. However, we did it in a universal indicator. The water reaction would have produced H + ions though, making the water acidic at the anode. The indicator didn't change to the acid color, it just turned the color of bleach. When you bubble Chlorine through water, you get...

it requires google calculator to realize that an ohm-farad is a second?

1(V/A)(C/V)=
1(C/A)=
1C/(C/s)=
1s.
When using SI units, they usually cancel in a reasonable, clear, logical way. That is why it is the international standard.

### Electrolysis of Aqueous NaCl (Chemistry)

I have a question that came up in my Chemistry class. It isn't homework, it is just a conceptual question that the teacher didn't know the answer too, and I have not been successful with Wikipedia or Google. So when you predict what happens at the anode and the cathode of aqueous electrolysis, you n...
