I'll go with i.

Is i between 1 and 10?

I imagine it can be anything it wants... smiley

On a scale of 1 to 10, Ronway's awrsome is orange.

Is one the lowest or the highest?  

Either way, I vote Setback.

E isn't a popular letter around here.


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

It would have been totally worth it. ;)

So, you have been granted the power to remove one single inanimate object from existence completely. What object do you choose?

Cheese. Gone. Forever.

And yes, I'm assuming that the collective of cheese has been lumped together into one "object"

Even the cheese that mad people chase down an impossibly steep hill near Gloucester? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooper's_Hill_Cheese-Rolling_and_Wake

Because that's quirky and amusing and incredibly British.

Kinda tempted to say "crude oil" to force a global shift to renewable energy sources, but that seems less amusing than going with "zucchini."  Because ugh.

Agreed. Zucchini should go!

Wait a second. Without my pure hatred for zucchini, everything else would seem less awesome. Hmm.

 

I am assuming that the item removed is removed not just from the present and the future, but the past as well. It will have never existed.

 

Oi. I've just thought of something depressingly serious -- the first cancer cell in a particular person. I'm not going to bring you down by saying _which_ person. Sadly, I expect most if not all of you could think of someone for whom you'd wish that first cancer cell never existed.


Hi. My name's Andy. Feel free to call me Andy, since, ya know, that's my name. (he/him/his)

What a depressing answer, because it doesn't follow the rules. Much as I'd like to see Cancer eliminated by a forum game, Cancer cells are not inanimate.

 

I would eliminate Ronway's crown, because "Damn it, Ronway!" is becoming repetative.

Let' see ... I'm sure there's at least one swastika that I'd be happy to have disappear.

We're only 2 posts away from a new question, how exciting!

Looking back over this thread I see I have already answered, but I think I'm going to answer again anyway.

I would remove Lego(tm) from the world.

As much fun as it is, stepping on it is much less fun. I think ultimately the loss of fun and loss of pain would balance out making removal of Lego(tm) a wash.

Why not just remove feet? Then we still get to enjoy Lego(tm), but won't have to worry about stepping on them. Also, we won't have to worry about stepping on other things, such as: broken glass, rusty nails, hot coals, banana peels, etc.

I hate the letter E.

There are at least 837 rules specific to that letter, and it violates everyone at least 13 different ways.

All my brothers played RPG's, and so I was pretty doomed to be a gamer. I can't remember the first game I played, but the first RPG I ever did was run by my brother. I was probably about 11, and he was probably about 14 or 15.
