FLIGHT SAFETY TIP: Fatties out first



So with the hollandaise season upon us now, and that means itís time to fight the hordes out shopping fight the scalper bots to try and buy a new video card online, get into a fight with your significant other about which placemats to use punch some idiot out for not wearing a mask in the grocery store, and listen to your drunk uncle Ted rant about foreigners at the dinner table on the family Zoom call. Fortunately it also means that itís time for yet another installment of the Sheep Game, where you can argue with your goon friends about who is the most correct about everything!

So, what is a sheep game? Here's you answer:

What the gently caress is a sheep

The game is not complicated.

1. There will be a list of questions at the bottom of this post. The object of the game is to provide the MOST COMMON response from the people playing the game, kind of like Family Feud. You receive one point for each person who provided the same answer. In other words, if the question was "What is best in life," and 10 players said "To crush your enemies," each of those players would receive 10 points. If 5 players said "The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist," they would each receive 5 points. If 1 player said "Hello Kitty," he would receive 1 points (and the public condemnation of his peers).

2. Every question scores points, even if only one. The player with the MOST points, after all the questions are added up, wins the game.

3. There are no right or wrong answers - your job is to provide the MOST COMMON answer. So even if you really, really think that "The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist" is best in life, it might still be in your best interest to answer "To crush your enemies." This means that even a factually incorrect answer can score the most points! You have to decide what you think everyone else will say.

4. Some of the questions are vague - intentionally so! It's your job to interpret them as you think the majority of AI will.

Send your answers along with your SA Username (seriously) to AIsheepgame@gmail.com (seriously, make sure your username is in there somewhere!) with the tag Sheep Game in the subject line. Format is important, so please send your answers like this:

code:
Miatas
Dead hooker smell.
The reason why I ask for the answers to be submitted without numbers (or written into the questions, holy poo poo you guys) is because with the program I use to organise this, I can just do a three-second copy/paste to create your entry. Anything else adds time and manual correction to the process.

Once you have sent your entry, please post in this thread as confirmation.

You have until 11 PM Pacific Time on Monday, December 20th (0700 UTC on Tuesday, December 21st) to submit your answers. The big reveal will be in this thread starting at or about 3 PM Pacific Time on Wednesday, December 22nd (2300 UTC on Wednesday, December 22nd), so set your calendars/alarm clocks/crude sundials made from old Jeep parts for the big day! I will be doing the reveal two questions per day with each reveal being posted at or about 3 PM Pacific Time, so you have some time to ridicule each other discuss your successes and failures.

Without further ado, the questions:

  1. If there was one car that I could erase from history, this would be it.
  2. This fictional car is the one I want to drive the most.
  3. In-house performance brands are the in-thing right now. This one has the best product history of all.
  4. On the other hand, this in-house performance brand has been more mediocre than anything else.
  5. Some cars have interesting or amusing stories about how they came to be. This production car has by far the best story behind it.
  6. If I wanted to just get into a car and escape from life for a while, this is the one I would choose.
  7. Everyone talks about tools you should have in your car if it breaks down, but this one that everyone seems to recommend makes no sense to me.
  8. The automotive industry is full of great people, but also villains and assholes too. This famous person is the biggest rear end in a top hat in automotive history.
  9. This engine layout (V6, inline-6, etc) has been criminally underused in automotive history, and I wish more cars had them.
  10. Looking back, this car company has consistently had the most innovative cars if you ask me.
  11. When I was 5 years old, I thought this was the coolest car in the world.
  12. Car models have had some pretty evocative names over the years. This is the most evocative of them all.
  13. The electric revolution is underway in a bigger way than ever before in 2021, and that means the end of the internal combustion engine might be fast approaching. This car will go down as the high-point of internal combustion in my opinion.
  14. Big wheels and low-profile tires are all the rage in cars, trucks and SUVs right now. Anything larger than this wheel diameter is just overkill, if you ask me.
  15. Being interested in cars means people always ask you, ďhey, which car should I drive?Ē This is the worst car Iíve ever recommended to someone.
  16. Itís easy to rip on car manufacturers for trends in cars that are questionable, ill-thought out or just plain dangerous. This recent trend, be it in design or features or whatever, is the one that I actually really like!
  17. To the surprise of literally nobody, AI decided that the Mazda MX-5 Miata was the best-ever Japanese car in Sheep Game 10. This car, however, is the worst car that was made in Japan.
  18. Sticking with the worst trend, in the last Sheep Game AI determined that the Ferrari F40 was the greatest-ever car made in Italy. This one, however, is the worst.
  19. Everyone likes to talk about how auto racing sucks in 2021 for various reasons. This is the biggest reason why, in my opinion.
  20. Lots of interesting cars and concepts have come out in 2021, in spite of all the odds and the challenges of the last year. This is the one that interests me the most.


Once again, send your answers to AIsheepgame@gmail.com before 11 PM Pacific Time on Monday, December 20th (0700 UTC on Tuesday, December 21st). See you all for the reveal!

Nothing except the dubious honor of knowing what a bunch of goons are thinking at any given moment.
