Late at night when you're all alone
nobodies online, no one's on the phone.
There's this feeling inside your head
Deep and crushing emotional dread.

Yeah it's an existential crisis
it's the ticket to life, here's what the price is.
Your place in the world,
how well you know your girl.
And who the hell likes you anyway?

Send out some texts and wait for response
nobody's responded?
Well send out some more.
Decide you'd feel better lying on the floor.
Think about your choices
think about them again.
Are you cringing yet? then you my friend

You're in an existential crisis.
Questioning decisions almost every day.
You know you're living a lie
You're too pent up to cry
But you don't wanna end it yet, anyway.

It's 3:27 and you should go to bed
but there's still these questions
running through your head.
Who will remember you when you die?
Do you have enough money to even try
to reconcile with the alibi
that you tell yourself about how "folks always lie"
and you wonder why
if you're such a sad sack anyone would date this guy
torrents of self loathing seem to fly

When you're in an existential crisis.
I think it's passing now.
Maybe go watch FRIENDS
so it won't start again
Man Chandler, what a mensch.

Never stop running, I'll see you in Cali

Well, Mr. Hurt, I just don't know
Throughout this game I've not much to show
my effort intense despite the rush to make rent
is, to others, viewed with discontent;

am I in the crosshair of this nefarious Doctor,
lead to slaughter, come hell or high water?
is he a physician? or more of a marauder?
his action guided by a head running hotter

the game is rough! though to be expected
our minds infected, others disrespected
by the urge and the hunt for those known as SCUM
the efforts of which have left me permanently numb;
I succumb to the scrum with the twist of our thumbs
like Caesar, en masse, all others struck dumb
by the surge of the vote, some will gain hope -
others must reveal just enough rope

Hurt, PhD, please listen to me
it is clear that your current actions do so decree
that you are a man of honor - maybe soon a goner
perhaps your departure will make us soon calmer
assuming that you're running out your meter
can you point out the bastard to send to Saint Peter?

I have a 50/50 shot of success. Theoretically this should be no problem.

Looking at Hurt for content, you see a lot of badly justified votes, sidelining, and this post:

Dr. Hurt posted:

Sorry folks didn't realize deadline was tonight. Bottle Knight. . . He got mad at me about talking about my feelings without votes which is sort of a weiner thing to do. A lot of Bottle Knight posts seem to be calling folks out but not much has been actual scum hunting. They've had a hair trigger on me since Day 2 based off very small things. But that's the same way they reacted to the Diq as well. Part of me wonders if they are just very quick to shoot. Not necessarily getting a scum vibe but

In my heart of hearts. Asiina is scum. Hear me out folks. Meta first, Asiina hates the role of scum with the bottom of her heart and the fiber of her being. Whenever she gets scum she's usually nonexistent in a game. But when it comes to her posts, it feels like she manufactured a big "here's my thoughts" posts so it would get everyone off her back and keep people thinking that she was in the game with as minimum content as possible.

Oddball is I feel like the Diq is scum. I can't back it up right now but that's my heart feel. Hal too.

My thoughts are a Hal/Asiina/Diq scum game.

Let's deal with Asiina first. ##vote Asiina

Interesting that from a pool of Hal, Epsilon and I that Hurt would choose to shoot Epsilon. He also writes an entire paragraph about how Bottleknight is scummy but ends it in a wishy washy way and how he isn't exactly getting a scummy feeling about BK. We call that a light defend. There's an idea in my head that Hurt made that nice rap knowing he had to make a move and shot the person least objectionable.

Hal is an entirely different beast. I look through his history and his interactions with scum and I and I see a number of jokes and cowardly retreats from rap battles, that sort of thing. I also see one real post with reads:

Hal Incandenza posted:

aC/Asiina - This persons has so little content that it is almost impossible to make an accurate read. Sad that it is probably too dangerous to kill them for being so terrible at this point. What content there is does appear scummy, no reads based on content, just talk about PMom and VT claims. Asiina's case on EP is decent enough, but it's still just pointing out 2 posts what are "wishy-washy" and nothing else.

BottleKnight - Not a whole lot of posting, has a very under-the-radar feel, many posts that just ask people to clarify things that don't really seem followed up on. Has made a few cases but most of them are very thin and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of follow-through on the ones made. Good probability of scum.

Captain Foo - Dude seems legit to me. Pretty solid town read here.

Dr. Hurt - Likes to try and get people to vote for his bad guy of choice but his posting is suspiciously light on his own casing. Wants us all to vote GG but mysteriously never mentions GG before that. Point in his favor is that he seems to be not taking things seriously in a very natural way and not a forced scummy way. Suspicious but not at the top of the list.

Epsilon Plus - Not a whole lot there, but I get a pretty townie feel from it. Defended me pretty hard against GG at one point which felt pretty pro-town to me, and the offer to retire felt genuine (did Epsilon actually get to four votes and then not retire? I can't quite work that out). Don't want to vote them today.

GUISSEPPE PIZZAPIE - Diqnol diqnol diqnol. anime gently caress pillow anime gently caress pillow anime gently caress pillow. True and Real True and Real True and Real. Coming in here ultra aggressive and promising to LEAD US ALL TO VICTORY but really he isn't doing much at all but blustering and sort of stepping back around deadline. My gut does not like Diqnol at all this game but I've been fighting that so far because I always want to believe in this guy. Not my top choice, but he's high on the list right now.

Hal Incandenza - Just a good old boy, never meaning no harm, but having trouble with the town since the day he was born. I'm totally town, but I haven't held up my end of the bargain very well.

##vote Bottle Knight probably would go with Dr. Hurt next.

Note that Hurt and I are both on his "Not top choice but on the list" level of suspicion and that he didn't want to vote for Epsilon. Did Hurt purposely shoot Epsilon to force Hal to make a tough choice, or did Hal try to get on Epsilon's good side and was hoping for a 2 man voting block when things got real?

On the surface, it looks like Hurt is the scum among my final two peers. Let's take a deeper look in my next post.

This is actually horrible to divine. I'm looking through my own post history to refresh myself and I make a pretty decent case for either of them being scum. What it seems to come down to, for me, is a series of questions I have to ask myself:

Did Hal flake out on this game in both rap battle, following up on reads, posting in general?
Is Hurt's mind so disconnected from the game that every time he left he'd come back with an entirely new premise about who is and isn't scum?
Do I think Hurt's vigilante shot just now was motivated from a position of town or scum? Which makes more sense?

AND I need to look at their (lovely) vote histories and look at the timing.

Expect this all in the next few hours.

Is that what happened? Balls, I needed to be here for a couple of deadlines. The problem is my free time is becoming so scarce that when I have it I cling to things I really enjoy to do and eschew other things like mafia. I don't think I've neglected this game in general but it's definitely below my normal activity threshold. I apologize to you all for not being here when you needed me

I'm not sure how Hurts power works but I assume he blew up whoever posted next which given the situation had to be me or epsilon. He's never mentioned epsilon as scum and I'd just come off pushing a scum to get killed yesterday. The one person who he wasn't going to blow up was Diqnol who he claimed was his best read at the end of yesterday

You flaking out on every aspect of the game is something I could see you doing as scum. Me bringing up the rap thing was actually supposed to be light hearted though it did disappoint me and actually turn me off of the game a bit. Let me keep recapping until I come to a conclusion and then we can talk it out from there, okay?

Ha-ha wroooong. It was random. It basically had a chance to blow up anybody. If you look at my raps I forshadow that I have no control and I might get blown away as well. Epsilon was... The only person I didnt want to die because I was sure he was town.

There was a very slim chance of hitting scum, but really I wanted to narrow it down to make it easier to find the bad guy... Hmmm now who is it. Diqnol or Hal...

Hal I am not keen on your reaction. I mean basically all day you have been trying to set me up as the easy pick, but sitting back and letting Diq put the framework together so it doesn't look like you are straight up pushing for me to swing.

Did I mess up bottle? Yeah I did. Because I felt asiina was the bad guy more. I had the feeling and I followed my guts because I just couldnt get a negative read.

This post... Makes no sense to me. A) you have no idea what my power was. That bolded section (emphasis mine) is a huuuge jump in logic, whatever it is.

First, to answer the questions I posed to myself earlier

GUISSEPPE PIZZAPIE posted:

Did Hal flake out on this game in both rap battle, following up on reads, posting in general?

Yes, though I meant to say "If so, does that make him scum" or something and as I sit here thinking about it, no, I guess it doesn't. Hal is a flaky individual and his lifestyle has gotten busier to the point that he isn't nearly as involved as he used to be. Is it something Hal does as scum, though? Yeah, he definitely does. That's solid meta. I think I should base my read on Hal on his content and timing alone and not care about the rest, giving some leeway to both.

quote:

Is Hurt's mind so disconnected from the game that every time he left he'd come back with an entirely new premise about who is and isn't scum?

Well, actually, thinking about it a bit, Hurt has done this in the past. I think I've strung him up for this a couple of times before and both times he flipped town? I'll investigate in a bit.

quote:

Do I think Hurt's vigilante shot just now was motivated from a position of town or scum? Which makes more sense?

Well, I think using a vig at all makes perfect sense from either side. I don't like that he's claiming it was random, I don't like that it killed Epsilon, I don't like that he made the choice without asking anyone. I do like, however, that he did it early and that the dead person was the least likely to contribute positively anyhow.

quote:

AND I need to look at their (lovely) vote histories and look at the timing.

This is next.
