Mafia LLamas remained undefeated, going 3-0-1 on Match Day 2 (ZoomZip ruined the "winning streak" theme with a 4(4)-4(4) draw)

Probably we won't remain unbeaten through Match Day 3, as I only got 3 correct today and that's probably an L in my Rundle.

2. All of the faces of a polyhedron known as a regular dodecahedron are what shape?

Answers will not be posted today in case there are people who have not yet submitted their answers to avoid spoiling them ;)

Far be it from me to spoiler anyone. At least my years of DnD come good for something, though. :D

There was basically no way for me to not "cheat" at this question. The last thing I had done with my computer the night before was. . . DM a DnD session. My computer was literally surrounded by dice set out in neat little convenient piles.

If you'd picked up 1984 you'd have discovered that communism was bad, not fascism.

Though really it's more about propaganda and social control than any given economic system, and it's horrifically relevant nowadays. It's an easy, good read.

Same. I can't believe the answer to:
2. The liquid part of blood (i.e., blood minus the blood cells) is plasma. What is the term for blood plasma from which fibrinogens and clotting factors have been removed?

wasn't "Blood Lite: Now With 30% Less Clotting Factor."

Let's just ignore that I am off to an 0-3 start in small part because of a "RTFQ" problem.

(Which means "read the fucking question." i.e., when a question asks for a movie that inspired a street name, and you write a street name.)

I read that question was that the movie title and street name were the same. So I’m in a similar boat. Somehow I’m 3-0 though.
