Re: Ingress - Foresquare with future sounds

On a related note, anyone here involved in Operation Portal Recon? Any thoughts on it? As far as I understand, this operation's goal is creating/submitting more portals in rural or less populated areas? I'm all for it, when I go back to my hometown for holidays, there is maybe 1-2 portals in the en...

Re: Stocks vs Broths

I keep bones/fat/gristle trimmed from everyday meals in freezer bags, frozen until I gather up enough for a batch of stock, which I then freeze in 2-cup portions. Next to them is a bag of onion/leek tops that I save for a similar purpose. When I'm in a pinch I use "Better Than Bouillon" br...

This.

Both the penny and the nickle are worth less than the metal used to mint them. Arguments about how "rounding is bad" will be ignored, because we already do that at gas stations (9/10 of a cent?), and nobody is trying to change that.

That's because you've purposely ignored the scenario that we're actually discussing: Scenario 4: You don't lynch the strongman. The strongman kill cannot be redirected, so it kills jimbob.

Answer from mod: the person ultimately targeting you, in this case player A, would be the one killed.
