  1. First, these are old analog clocks, which means that there is no differentiation between AM and PM. Therefore, we are looking for the time when the two clocks, combined, get 12 hours out of sync.



    There are 43,200 seconds in 12 hours
    At a 20 second difference per hour over 24 hours, the difference will be 480 hours per day.
    If the clock gets off by 480 seconds in a day it will take 90 days to get off by 12 hours, and thus back in sync.

    If they set the clocks on Jan 31st, then during a non-leap year, the time until May 1st would be 90 days (28 in Feb + 31 Mar + 30 Apr + 1 May).

    Leap year happens every 4 years, and it adds an extra day to that total (91 days). Therefore, it is impossible for the clocks to be set in January, and realign in May, during a leap year.


    Additionally, 1932 was a leap year. This means that whomever was born in 1933 would turn 47 in 1980 (another leap year, as the difference between 1980 and 1932 is 48, which is a multiple of 4).

    IF Robert were born in 1933, he would be turning 27 on a leap year. As previously established, we cannot make it from Janurary to May within 90 days on a leap year. Therefore, the current year must be 1979, and Robert must be born in 1932.

    Thus, Robert is older than Arthur, who was born in 1933.


  2. Oh, OOP then. . .

    mOs style. Means everything happens at the same time. Paradoxical posts are allowed, and typically in the event of an action paradox, the block takes precedence. Y-San will correct me if I'm wrong as it pertains to her game.

    Edit: When did I hit 3k!?


  3. Nice! I like the format. Very simple and effective. I also like the click-for-answer requirement (and that the answer appears in its own popup).

    The only thing I would change is the way the app reacts to the screen turning off. Typically, when I turn my screen back on after it has been off, the app returns or remains at the most recent portion. However, this app resumes back at the beginning of the list of puzzles, thus requiring me to scroll back through the puzzles until I find where I left off.

    Also, is there any way that this app could reflrect the forum? Or maybe see if the forum could be compatible with the TapaTalk app?

    Umb...and you&#39;re fighting with what?  Mismatched code <img src='http://brainden.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':P' />?<br />

    <br />

    I have a<em> bankai</em>...what do you have?<br />

    Lol! And a safe house apparently. So even if you could gain control of your sword beast, as far as your bankai is concerned you still won't be able to touch me... Trouble is that I won't be able to do anything either...

    You can thank the mobile version of this site for the broken code. There's quite a few glitches in the full and mobile versions of the new bd.


  5. Yeah... You guys got lucky... If you hadn't gotten me N1, this would have turned out different... Jerky baddies... Hehehehe Nice play...

    Yeah, after I got zombified I started counting the abilities and realized that we never stood a chance from the start.

    BGs-

    1) Block at night

    2) Block lasts indefinitely (making it the equivalent of a kill)

    3) This block/kill has highest priority over all other abilities (this is an ability in itself)

    4) A kill

    5) Copy role (whatever that may end of being)

    6) Role-Reveal misdirection

    7) They ALL know each other's roles

    8) Extra votes

    9) Spy

    10) BTSC

    Basically, they had 6-7 abilities depending on how you look at it, plus the massive advantage of BTSC that usually works to create balance in a 6-7 vs 1 game. Meaning that even if the Heroes and Army had worked together flawlessly (if there had been no incentive for the Army to kill the Heroes and it was actually 9 vs 3), there's still advantage in favor of the BGs.

    Heroes-

    1) Kill IF they have an ID (making it usually about a 1/4 chance of success at best, not even vaguely comparable to the BG kill ability)

    2) Bring someone back from the dead IF they have an ID (Again very little chance that it will ever work, not even vaguely comparable to the BG zombify ability)

    3) Block (Though falls 2nd to the BG block)

    4) Redirect

    5) Save

    6) Spy

    Army-

    1) Kill IF they have an ID (making it usually about a 1/4 chance of success at best, not even vaguely comparable to the BG kill ability)

    2) Block (Though falls 2nd to the BG block)

    3) Redirect

    4) One of them knows the roles of the other two, but the other two know nothing

    @ OT, I had you on N2, I redirected you to yourself (thus eliminating you from the game :rolleyes:) but then your ability took precedence and the one time I used my ability it didn't count.

    Good game guys, I just wish I had studied the BG roles better before the game started.


  6. not if we can somehow free up you zombies...I think? Surley baddies didn't kill or zombify themselves?

    If they didn't zombify themselves, then they have the lynch majority to take out whoever they want, then they kill the remaining player tonight, game over. And in case that one of the zombies is un-zombified at the end of the day, then that player will just be zombified again tonight, game over. Basically the BGs had 2 simple kills this game, thus a single Hero lynch=BG win. So it should be over as far as I can tell.


  7. If there's another Indy out there who isn't Bb, I know you're the boss. Because I'm Boy #1.

    I think many of us knew that from N1... though apparently not Segul, but he probably wouldn't have realized it without experience.

    Anyways, I thought I made it pretty clear through my behavior in my last post that I'm not an Indy. But now you have subjected yourself to an RID, as well as narrowing things down for the BGs (in case they didn't have you figured out already).

    So now that both of the remaining two Indies are out in the open, does anyone else want to go ahead and out themselves?

    Well crap. :duh:


  8. showing the scorpion tattoo where the knife had made contact.

    Well that explains the compliment for the proposed alliance and also the indirect defense of Segul :duh: I guess that kinda squishes the proposed alliance...

    At least take comfort that the Heroes are not going to kill you because we don't want to give the BGs more opportunity towards the majority :blush:

    On the upside... as far as I can tell, the 3 BGs are among firno, Nick, slick, OT, Maurice, and woon. :thumbsup: 50/50 shot after D1. Not bad!


  9. @LJ - Please find a replacement for me. I'm sorry, but I do not feel able to continue.

    @Bb - Please understand that statement as me not wishing to play with you anymore.

    I understand, crystal clear araver. Though I'm not sure if that's because you have been outed or because you just don't want to defend yourself.

    I'm not going to be silent because you do not want to defend against accusations (assuming that's what this is about?).

    I'm going to stir things up and make people talk. If you don't want to defend that's fine, just out yourself and plead no contest.

    FYI, taking note that Nick chose to vote against a confirmed innocent.

    8mins remaining.


  12. Do you have something on segul? I actually would like to keep playing with you...but I won't get starstruck into losing this for my faction. So if you have a solid reason for segul being BG I'd love to hear it

    -Earlier when I was playing off of Molly Mae's straight forward request of araver, I decided to play around and make a straight forward request of Segul and firno, asking them to reveal IF they were BG. I was playing around, but I got a quick and rabid response from Segul. Why be so offended by it unless he thought I was really trying to get him to reveal his baddie status? Suspicious, but only suggestive.

    -Then he followed up by making a vote in favor of Molly, a confirmed non-BG. I STRONG suggestion that he was not thinking it through, and a STRONG suggestion that he is against Molly for some reason (what other reason than because he tried to kill her the night before?).

    -Following that, he made a post saying that I was BG because I voted against him... even though his actions are mounting up as being very suggestive of being BG.

    -So he was able to make that comment, but then refused to actually defend, or to change his vote away from the confirmed innocent. At this point I'm thinking that he needs to consult his BTSC before he slips up again.

    -At this point his BTSC buddies have told him to leave his vote where it is, so that Araver can keep it tied. So that at the end of the day, Segul (who is already HIGHLY suspicious) will be able to jump in and change his vote to place someone else in the majority. Sure it will confirm him as a baddie, but he's already there, so it won't make much difference. Plus it will rid the thread of all conversation tomorrow (A HUGE advantage for the BGs) when he have a confirmed baddie to lynch.

    If you have something, anything, more solid on ANYONE else, let me know.

    Also, araver is a BG. Both because of his constant and punctual but indirect defense of Segul through his acts, and also because of his behavior. I had him down as suspicious when he made the grand congratulatory post following me outing myself. What better thing for a baddie to say, when both opponents have joined forces against you, than 'good job I support you'? Again, that only made him suspicious, but his consistent acts since them have condemned him.

    Less than 18mins to go before a baddie gets away clean!

    @ Nick, JL said that he can choose to have a x1 vote


  13. Someone please move my vote to brandon.

    1. Molly - Voting for Slick

    2. maurice -voting for Brandonb

    3. Framm - Voting for Maurice

    4. Segul- voting for Molly mae

    5. araver - Voting for Slick

    6. Hirkala-zombified

    7. onetruth - Voting for Maurice

    8. NickFleming

    9. woon - voting for Segul

    10. slick-voting for Brandonb

    11. Brandonb - voting for Segul

    12. firno - Voting for Slick

    Granted, I probably would have claimed Army no matter what faction I ended landing in... Your vote change is still a bad move.


  14. @Bb - And that was not my defense. Try to read it again thinking its not a defense and a meaning might actually reach you. You're on my ignore list atm.

    @ everyone else, just notice that he made sure to tie it up again once someone got in the lead. What we have here is a Baddie hooked on the line (Segul) and another baddie trying to save him. No worries, the third baddie will make himself known just before the end of the day to push it into Slick's favor (or to even the vote to a tie with Slick once he changes his vote to Segul to save himself)

    1. Molly - Voting for Slick

    2. maurice - Voting for Segul

    3. Framm - Voting for Maurice

    4. Segul- voting for Molly mae

    5. araver - Voting for Slick

    6. Hirkala-zombified

    7. onetruth - Voting for Maurice

    8. NickFleming

    9. woon - voting for Segul

    10. slick-voting for Brandonb

    11. Brandonb - voting for Segul

    12. firno - Voting for Slick

    Edit: Just to make it clear Slick, araver just pushed you back into a tie for the majority. You have a 50% chance of being lynched right now.


  15. Brandon, please chill. I read some if not all of your Mafias here on BD and I really don't like that kind of pretense mind-game. I mean maybe you're seeing new faces, but I don't see a new one when looking at you. Do you really wanna go back to never being trusted, ever again? :D

    We need activity, not votes. We got enough of random/no-reason votes.

    So let me get this straight, your defense is that I need to leave you alone or I will not be trusted, because I am pressing evidence against you? I don't care if I am not trusted, I find it's safer to always assume that no one trusts me... but this is evidence that you have not negated. Prior to JL's clarification you were sticking to the idea that there was enough pressure... when there was even disbursement of pressure. As I said, you were either pushing to kill everyone, or prevent people from learning info, so lets hear it, and don't bother trying to sidestep by pointing to JL's clarification. I wanna hear your reasoning for it being a good idea that nothing is learned. And again, as I said, I have a few reasons for suspecting you... beyond what I have posted about so far. Now lets hear what you have to say BG.

    Are you guys sure Segul isn't just making a noob mistake?

    Could have been a noob mistake... could have been a noob response... could be a noob panicking right now rather than responding (the reason that he is here to read, but not to defend)... but then again, why would he be panicking?

    Silence is no defense... silence is death.
