Re: Reversi Mini: Losing is Winning (Day 1)

To be clear, this was a fake reason to justify a random vote. However, one reason would be to try to get your buddy lynched.

Re: Reversi Mini: Losing is Winning (Day 1)

somitomi must be scum for not doing it or voting hismelf. I'm curious what (hypothetical) scum!me would gain by voting someone other than himself? 4-1 sounds too scum-favoured, because it only requires one correct lynch for town to lose. 3-1-1 is possible I guess. At the same time, town only needs ...

Re: On Forgetting Important Bits of Information

I sure hope it's not a sign of old age, because I once forgot the PIN for my cellphone during my teenage years. Used up all my tries and had to locate the PUK when I got home in the end.
(When this happened I regularly turned my phone off when I left it in a locker or similar place)
