Can you stay on the bus? (in Contests)


AdminG Beee September 4 2007 10:49 AM EDT

I will offer (from my admin char) $200k to the first 5 people who get on, and then stay on, my bus.

You can ask to get on the bus as often as you want, but you can only ask once between my updates.
If you do get on my bus (I'll tell you on my update) then you must ask to stay on my bus by asking one more time. Only after you have got on, and then stayed on, will you qualify for the $200k.

I'll periodically get off the bus just to grab some random stuff that will give you clues...

I'm on the bus and I'm taking my "seesaw" with me.
Who wants on the bus and what are you taking?

NB. Spoilers will be carped and disqualified from all my future forum contests :p

AdminNightStrike September 4 2007 3:16 PM EDT

I thought it was a doubt-letter thing, but penny wasn't allowed... so what was it?

QBRanger September 4 2007 3:17 PM EDT

Or possibly a Hoe

QBRanger September 4 2007 3:18 PM EDT

Nightstrike would need to bring a cheerleader with him.

QBJohnnywas September 4 2007 3:20 PM EDT

Thanks!!!!

I have absolutely no idea now what was going on. I thought I did until the alcohol arrived...

QBJohnnywas September 4 2007 3:20 PM EDT

Actually that's my life story right there....

phrog September 4 2007 3:47 PM EDT

In the end, I'm not sure I really know what was going on either. Hmm...

Flamey September 4 2007 5:22 PM EDT

Reading through I'm still lost on the relation of the objects.

SNK3R September 4 2007 5:29 PM EDT

To be honest, I've never understood any of these bus contests...

drudge September 4 2007 5:29 PM EDT

someone said something about the number of letters in your nick name

Hyrule Castle September 4 2007 5:36 PM EDT

yea, i think its the number of letters in your name, you have to come up with a word to bring on the bus...

like bast (4 letters) brought beer and food...

so yea... iuno if thats right

AdminG Beee September 4 2007 5:42 PM EDT

G_Beee = 6 characters
seesaw = 6 characters

Johnnywas = 9 characters
playhouse = 9 characters

Spaces count as characters.

Johnny, I don't believe you fluked it again!! :) Didn't you do likewise last time too?

There's always a connection with this game, you just need to find it :)
I think the first time, if I remember correctly, it was simply a word starting with the same first letter as your user name. This time you needed a word with the same amount of characters as your user name...

QBJohnnywas September 4 2007 5:43 PM EDT

lol, pure luck!!!!! Hah!!! Or I'm psychic.....;)


Mikel September 4 2007 6:10 PM EDT

Johnny isn't the only one that can't get on the bus. :P

drudge September 4 2007 6:45 PM EDT

well, fine....im glad im not on the short bus anyway!

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] September 4 2007 6:49 PM EDT

If only I didn't have to go play pool, that was the easiest bus by far! Funnily enough most correct guesses were also kids playthings which can be misleading ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 10 2007 4:33 PM EDT

Johnny's had a lot of experience riding the bus. ;) The special bus that is. ;)

th00p September 10 2007 5:10 PM EDT

I ride the short bus to school XD

AdminG Beee September 10 2007 5:43 PM EDT

GL, Johnny may have experience of the special bus but I seem to recall you having tremendous difficulty negotiating the underground trains the last time I met you ;)

QBJohnnywas September 10 2007 6:21 PM EDT

Didn't somebody forget the way home?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 10 2007 7:08 PM EDT

>_<

I feel asleep and ended up at the end of the line (oh oh! Bought anew house! I've not told you guys about that yet! ;)). Had to phone a workmate to come pick me up. ;)
