Room 1 got a lot easier when I realized I could see the shell up top and time my jumps to when it went to the right.  I also duck jumped to make my jumps last longer.

I did a spin jump facing forward, which auto hit bowser each time. But yes, untiming myself from the spring sound to the shell visual was key.

Ah... then yeah, you never had a chance, at least for that room. But I think that most people who would be playing on super-expert know about bomb slides; at least I see plenty of levels that require them... I suppose I could have put a "Z" to tell people to spin jump.

Throughly enjoyed it. I peeked into each room once to get an understanding of what I was aiming to do before restarting and running the level clean. I one shot each of the rooms (order of personal difficulty: 5-3-4-1-2), but then, alas, I weak jumped the final launch in 2 after Bowser was dead to end up in the flames. 😭😭😭. Ah well.

Itís so pretty! You should name it something lovely and summery.

Such fluffy egg white!

Itís called a Save me the Waltz, which I rather enjoy as a name... almost as much as the drink!

So I made this today and just had to share because... my goodness was it delicious!!!


free photo host

Specs:

1.5 oz Gin (used a London Dry - Bombay Sapphire)
.75 oz St. Georgeís Raspberry Liqueur
.5 oz Orgeat
.5 oz Lemon Juice
2 Dashes Orange Bitters
1Egg White
Seltzer

- I shook all the ingredients except the Egg & Seltzer with ice to chill. I then removed the ice and added the egg white, allowing 15 seconds for the Lemon Juice to begin to denature the egg proteins, before dry shaking again for another 45 seconds. After pouring into my glass, I topped it with Seltzer and garnished with the Raspberries.

(why crumb that role at all?), but mostly just seem to be a knee-jerk defense in response being accused of sheeping faust.
Breadcrumbing is a good idea with this role because he knows for sure someone is town. In case he is killed, that person can be IC. I don't know if Joseph would do that. It seems just as likely that he would have tried to get the townie lynched to get the individual win.

He only wins if the lynchee is lynched, he canít win with town.

This. His only win condition was to lynch the lynchee.

Nah, with you having chimed in, Iím good with the hammer. vote: Gkrieg

10
Gkrieg - Do you believe that you wouldíve lost to MiX had he challenged you yesterday?

11
@gkrieg - I know it was hypothetical, but that was left out of most of your posts. And they were very long. It would be so much more helpful if you organized the information you want us to consider. I know you didn't make that specific statement. That was intended to stand in for all the variations in which you referred to someone as someone else's partner without any justification or caveat.

What is your response to Joseph's statement that he had his own reasons for voting ADK?

PPE: Galzria -- An IC we'll be lynching? Are you talking to gkrieg?

Yes. Either heís scum and we win, or heís not and scum is between ADK/MiX. Gkrieg is currently operating with 100% of the information weíll have after his lynch. Assuming heís town, heís at least trying to figure out who the last scum is.

12
Just vote gkrieg!

I would rather have Spaceís analysis now, in case Gkrieg flips town and then Space dies at night.

I am flipping town. Don't know why people are rushing this so much.
What was the point of the long posts showing who was mentioned when by ADK and MiX? Did you draw any conclusions from that?

I was trying to highlight the partner interactions of ADK and MiX with their scum partners. I guess I was trying to show that either (if ADK is scum) you shouldn't give IC status based off the idea that ADK is the lynchee, or that MiX bussed his partners really hard.

One of the two must be true, so I was trying to figure out if ADK really was the lynchee, and if they weren't, what did their interactions with their partners look like, or to see if Datswan and chairs interacted with either ADK or MiX.

I'm town that is going to be lynched before anyone looks into ADK and MiX, so I was trying to make it easier to read them and their interactions with the two flipped scum.
It's scummy to say "MiX voted his partner", when it's nowhere near conclusive that MiX is even scum.

Note that I am approaching this as a hypothetical. Did you read the whole post? I also never actually said what you put in quotes, which is misleading.

The point was that when y'all lynch me today, you will have to think through the situation I just posed:

1. MiX is scum: requires that he bussed his partners very hard

2. ADK is scum: someone else was the lynchee

I'm trying to give you information (because no one seems to be rereading) so that minimal rereading is required to make that decision.

Donít feel too attacked here. I completely agree. Thereís no new information forthcoming this game so Iím basically treating you as an IC that weíll be lynching today. If youíre scum, we win. If youíre town, your input is equally as valid as any remaining IC tomorrow. Youíre working with identical information as everyone else - so by all means go for it.

You know, itís funny - I havenít fully tried to put my feelings on the conclusion into writing until I wrote this text to my mother earlier today. Thought I would share:

Iím doing something that I probably shouldnít - Iím about halfway through a reread of Book 1 of GoT. Iím not sure if somehow I believe that, show ended, Martin will somehow feel a release of pressure and finally be capable of finishing his story, or if Iím just hopefully seeking a more satisfying conclusion. Maybe Iím just suffering GoT withdrawals knowing thereís nothing more to come.

I wasnít hugely disappointed with the finale, in that Iím not at all surprised that they happy ended most still living characters - and further, I think the overall feel of the ending is actually what Martin intended/intends. Certainly I think Bran as King and Dany Dead is exactly what was planned from the beginning. My dissatisfaction isnít the ending itself, itís that the storylines werenít borne out to justify such a conclusion. Everything that happened was plausible enough, if given time and space and story to develop. I believe the show couldíve sold the exact (or near enough) sane ending to great acclaim if built out over seasons 7-11 instead of slam packed into 7 & 8.

As a reader or observer, you need to feel invested, and you want to feel rewarded. HBO spent 6 seasons building off the written material to invest itís viewers in the show. Even the deviances from the book were  accepted, as the show still took the time it needed to be compelling and engaging. The story, if not all the details, was there. And as a viewer, you cared. Over the past 2 seasons, HBO simply had a story to tell. They didnít know how to build upon what Martin had provided. They didnít know how to build the characters or the story, and thus the viewerís reward - the conclusion - was not earned by anyone involved - Not unjustified mind you. The ending was perfectly acceptable. Just not earned.

Request prod on Space.

Sorry.. I'm here! Work got busy, and I have no free weekends to use in compensation. I'm really sorry for my absences! :-(

Space, can you please do a fully targeted reread on MiX, and his potential to be scum with Chairs/Datswan.

How do you feel about him challenging Chairs in this pairing? Given the number of ICís, the pressure to challenge Chairs over Gkrieg yesterday, and the overall feeling that scum were already backed into a corner, is it really that unreasonable of him to challenge his partner banking on the town!cred generated to buy him the following two mislynches he would need to win?

Note, in fact, that yesterday I pointed out that had he challenged Gkrieg after it was made clear by active ICís that he should challenge Chairs that it wouldíve resulted in his immediate lynch - and if he flipped scum, Chairsís immediate lynch today.

I think I win LyLo against anyone so I don't really care anymore.

I will lynch you over ADK every time.

Aww. What if gkrieg isn't trying his hardest to win?

Why would you think he isnít? He has nothing to lose by trying as Town or as scum.

Yeah I kinda meant to say "as scum" in the end. I think he's scum that's trying to win instead of giving up.

I said I would lynch you over ADK, not over Gkrieg. I still plan on lynching him today.

Assuming Gkrieg doesnít self hammer and is town, Iíll be promoting ADK tonight. If he challenges anybody except for MiX tomorrow (ie one of Space/Me/EFHW - one of the three ICís (although one of us will be dead)) then heís basically admitted guilt.

I know it doesnít seem like it needs to be said, but still. Better safe than dumb.

21
Gkrieg, if youíre scum, you can self hammer here - Iím not voting elsewhere today. If youíre town, Iíll give you 48 hours to look at which of MiX/ADK is more likely so that we may consider it tomorrow, but then Iím hammering you still.

The fact is, everyone in this show has been cruel, and for some reason we are meant to believe that Daenerys's cruelty marked a descent into madness. There just wasn't enough to make her change of heart believable. Also I'm still salty about the way the White Walkers were handled.

The conclusion of the story of the White Walkers was a travesty. ďThe greatest threat this world has ever knownĒ, whoís motives still arenít known (exactly), and whose entire existence served exactly no purpose whatsoever... it was truly a let down.

I mean, really, the show needed the entirety of a season to be dedicated to that story arc, but whatever.

Honestly, I was hoping that they lost the battle at Winterfell and would be forced to fall back to the Iron Islands, which wouldíve given more purpose to Yaraís storyline. And it wouldíve given final closure to Theon as well. It wouldíve allowed the show breathing room, and given more time to delve into the White Walkerís back story.

23
Iím tempted to do it. But dammit if Iím not curious what Space is cooking.

Sorry. But Iím not casting my vote to make you feel better. If thereís honestly a better or more valid reason to think MiX is scum, I would vote there instead. I just havenít seen anything convincing one way or the other.

24
Hereís where Iím feeling like the likely pairs can lie:

MiX-ADK
MiX-Gkrieg
Gkrieg-Chairs
ADK-Chairs

I donít really see MiX-Chairs as SUUUPER likely, nor do I think Gkrieg-ADK is super likely (heís the only person to try and dispel the ADK=Town theory).

This isnít super helpful though, as it doesnít actually narrow the field.

Sooo.... fuck me.

vote: Chairs

If Iím wrong we can reevaluate tomorrow.

Space: Need you to help out here. Youíre super freaking valuable from a VCA analysis, and weíre missing this right now.

óóó

Side notes:

This is massively frustrating. Isolationís aside: I gut read MiX as scum more than I do Chairs. But I HATE that Chairs isnít bothering to try and convince us MiX is more likely scum than he is (which if heís town MUST be true). And yet every non-IC has jumped on Chairs when MiX is very much conceivably viable. And yet why would scum!MiX claim VT D1 and not SEB? And worst of all, both may in fact be town if the scum team is ADK-Gkrieg!!!

Iíve had this post typed for more than 24 hours without posting and Iíve changed my vote 8+ times. Iíve settled on Chairs because of something Gkrieg said: If heís scum and self-hammers... who the hell cares? Itís ridiculous to be afraid of scum!Chairs doing that. If he wants to do it, by all means man, go for it.

25
unless MiX is your partner and the scum promoter, in which case itís imperative he not get lynched because his flip would out you

And he self promoted today when itís ďimperative he not get lynched because his flip would out youĒ?
