:siren: Who is the Russian :siren:

Warning! We have FAKE NEWS accounts posting here from eastern SOVIET Europe trying to influence our ways of thinking.

The only way to prove that we are who we say we are is to participate in a “most patriotic” challenge.

The winner will be awarded with a special prize. The second highest scorer is clearly the Russian spy - they’ll be given a new custom title and new “responsibilities” to undo the damage of their communist messaging. The logic for determining who is the spy goes like this: a spy would be very well-studied and practiced in western ways, but ultimately foreign to them. A true American will perform these challenges better than any Russian could. But a Russian would run a close second by copying and learning from the American. Therefore, top place is a hero. Second place must be the spy. And clearly the spy won't be able to resist playing this game to prove that they're not a spy.

We're going to play the sheep game:

Format Shamelessly Stolen from C-Spam posted:


How do I play a Sheep Game?
I will ask a series of inane questions. Anyone interested in playing will email (see the bottom of this post) with their SA Username, a link to their profile and their answers. Please do not PM me your answers. I promise I will count any entry sent to the email address. I reserve the right to arbitrarily reject or accept entries delivered via PM, depending on my mood and the quality of your entry.

I just have to answer your stupid questions? But then how do I win?
Entries are scored by how popular the total answers are among all other contestants. For instance, let's say one question is "Which fluid is in the tape?" If you answer "Piss" but all the other posters answer "Lemonade" then you get no points, despite the fact that you are right and they are wrong. However, if five other posters also say "Piss" then you get five points for that question. So do they. Your goal is to guess what answers will be the most popular. Whichever entry gets the most total points wins and gets a free hat. If there's a tie I'll figure out some sort of tiebreaker but let's ignore that for now.

Threads are more fun if people are posting in them. Post (and lobby for) for your favorite possible answers in the thread. This helps you in two ways:
1. You might persuade other posters to post your preferred answer, increasing your score.
2. Once the Sheep Game is over, I will pick my favorite lobbying post from the thread. My decision is arbitrary and final. Shim gets a pick too.


The Questions
1. Who is the best pre-Trump US President?
2. What is the worst political party in the history (or present) of the United States?
3. How many current members of congress (on 1/15/2018) are military veterans?
4. Is the United States Marine Corps its own branch of service, or a part of the Navy?
5. How many editions of the dick art book have been published?
6. Who is the patron saint of GIP?
7. Which MRE makes you poo poo you pants?
8. Who is the collectively most hated mod of GIP?
9. What year did GIP become its own subforum?
10. Which regular GIP poster currently on active duty is the dumbest?
11. Does kneeling during the national anthem insult your service to this great country?
12. What's the highest rank (any nationality) of anyone who has posted in GIP?
13. Which US-involved war was/is the coolest?
14. What will ultimately cause the demise of the United States?
15. What is the best dog in GIP?

Seriously, the point of the game is you try to answer as in line with the gip echo chamber as possible, but without discussing the questions before polling is done. It's like family feud, except the people surveyed are the ones competing.

Edit: I guess Zeris wants discussion, but I like the surprise of seeing what everyone answers at the end. It's how AI does it, but I'm not enough of a car nerd to feel like competing in that all the time.

I'm pretty sure the echo chamber answer for MRE will be jambalaya but my friends, have you experienced the wonders of the buffalo chicken MRE?

Somewhere between three and four years back I was in an exercise at Osan and they locked us into the bunker with MOPP and MREs to subsist on for a week. General Order 1, no drinking, no going to the BX for a proper rear end disaster like Taco Bell. It was great because my boss at the time was a bodybuilder coming back from a competition and he'd been cutting weight/fat for the last two weeks. He gets into the office and rips into three MREs and starts eating them shamefully. I looked in on him and he kinda looked down and said "don't judge me..."

But I digress.

At this point in the week I'd had a few MREs over days, so we get to enjoy the usual constipation or loose moments you'd associate with those culinary joys. But on this day, I get to sample the buffalo chicken MRE. It tasted terrible, as MREs generally do? but it was a special kind of lovely. You would think with chicken being in the name there would be some semblance of protein inside the little package but that would be incorrect. Instead I got what seemed to be hardened clumps of orange poo poo lovingly slathered in more bright orange poo poo the consistency of diarrhea. It wasn't so much a nice spicy zing as it was an assault on my mouth. It is the only MRE I have not been able to eat the main course of. I'm not a particularly picky eater and I've got a pretty stern stomach but this is one of my most unpleasant food memories. So gently caress it, I'll toss it, I'm done with this.

As it turns out it's appropriate that the consistency of the buffalo sauce was that of slinky diarrhea because that's exactly what I got, but it just really plops the cherry on the sundae that much like drinking a bunch of dark beer turns my poo poo dark, after eating the buffalo chicken MRE my poo poo was orange.

that's my story thanks for reading
