You guys rarely think these things through thoroughly.  Brains on Reductionism I suppose.  So let's say I do Mike's experiment and let's say I do not observe any "cecotrope eating" (Freaking Octohatters! SMH) ... then what?  What action would you like me to take?

Now Borealis wants me to analyze the nutrition of my rabbits. How? In a lab? Maybe I should do that for all the wild rabbits too?
Dave,
Your moving cage is a "CHANGE" to the conditions of raising Rabbits.
Rabbits eat their cecotrope, usually expelled at dusk or dawn.
The question is:

"Does your moving cage prevent your Rabbits from acquiring and eating their cecotrope?"

All it takes is an afternoon and early morning of observation.
1) Run cage as normal, stopping at 10pm and starting at 5am.
2) Watch Rabbits in afternoon while some expel cecotrope(s). Do they eat them?  Do they lose them to movement of cage?
3) Watch Rabbits in morning while some more expel cecotrope(s).  Do they eat them?  do they lose them to movement of cage?

Pretty simple challenge there champ.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
Last post by MikeS -
So is anyone else suspect like I do that Trump is doing everything he can to avoid talking about the mission in Niger that got those soldiers killed?

He didn't say anything about the event for almost two weeks, no Tweets, no public statements or bothering to contact the families until it became a PR issue. Which seems a little unusual for someone who talks smack all the time and boasts and struts about military action and whatnot. He's been asked about it and deflected to some other crap or kept moving without reacting to questions.

Then it came out that a white house press statement had been prepared by someone in the administration right after the incident occurred. That it was signed off on by his security council, apparently it had been shared with the pentagon and some others as well, and was then passed on to Trump who didn't sign off on its release and let the whole thing die. Someone, I forget who, tried to contact the main author of the statement who immediately hung up the phone when asked about it.

So far there's been no explanation at all about what happened in Niger whatsoever. Not even a general one, like, total radio silence. Which in this case is slightly more than unusual (to me) given that there's nothing in Niger that could make this about some massive need for secrecy. There's no action against nuclear installations or theft/destruction of high technology to keep covered up. Seriously, what the hell is in Niger that you have to keep 100% silent about any action there?

Niger the country, not the river.

US is there since 2013 because the first (al-quida?) attacks in Mali that took over the top (Sahel) half of Mali and marched on the lower half forcing a French intervention.  Since then the French and US have been training and arming the defense forces of the Sahel region countries so that, at a minimum, they can defend themselves against radical militias like Boko Haram and Al-Quida.  The US role is supposedly non-combatent. 

ETA:  Haha, your edit took out the Niger Delta article.   :ohmy:

Okay, Okay Diva sorry.
I am not voting you.
Like you I am trying to work out all the possibilities.
And you are right, one shot vig does explain the game as well as an sk.

But I do think there are some problems with the theory.
1/ It probably means we are hunting two scum.
2/ if we have a one shot town vig why haven't they put their hand up and said so?
After all they would have killed the Don, worth celebrating.
3/ or if the town vig is dead, why didn't our GM say, such and such, town vig dead.
After all, he did tell us the town blocker is dead.

1. I am leaning in that direction.
2. I think the vig shld out (if there is 1) shld out. it is why I said they shld and if they don't and try to out later they shld be treated as an sk IMO.
3. I don't think the player who did the second nk so far is dead. if teeth nerfed nos's flip we can lynch him in postgame if nos was a 1 shot vig. I am just hopeful that is not what is going on.
