228 – Election Mishaps

228 – Election Mishaps

The Game Master (GM) is the head of student government at EIT.

Why do Kali’s vote pins fade over time, while her hat remains fully opaque? The world may never know.

Also, every decision should be made via Laser Tag Deathmatch.

    Obviously, her hat is impregnated with deuterium. Perhaps she dropped it in a vat of heavy water or something. Who knows why she would HAVE a vat of heavy water….

  2. Paracelsus says:

    Also, who is Zwack? And why does everyone want him to be the GM? Forgive my ignorance… I’m just very far away…

  3. Nash says:

    I remember my senior year voting for a different candidate every time there was another vote…I think I voted for 3 different people for GM…just to screw with the election committee.

    Naming your leaders after roleplaying terms. Greatest. College. Ever.

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.

  5. anon says:

    Zwack is the candidate who isn’t causing all the election results to become invalidated

    It’s actually an ancient idea, selecting leaders on ability to fight, strategize, etc. Problem is the best fighter wins, but that doesn’t mean they are a good leader. However by carefully selecting the contests to fit the position, you do have a better chance of getting someone worthwhile than the usual popularity debacle. Secretary of War: Chess Match. Congress: Ropes courses. Secretary of Agriculture: Giant Vegetable contest. What do you think would be the contest appropriate for Presidency?

    Baughbe: “What do you think would be the contest appropriate for Presidency?”

    Laser Tag Deathmatch. It’s a silly game that perfectly represents the idiocy of most* of those who aspire to and often get the office.

    “Secretary of War: Chess Match.”

    “Secretary of War” was replaced by “Secretary of Defense” in 1947. Also, war tends to be about bluffing as much as it is about well-thought-out strategy and/or tactics. I’d recommend that poker be required as well.

    “Congress: Ropes courses.”

    Or, better yet, bondage games — ’cause *Someone’s* gonna get screwed in the end…

    *Granted, not all; but most…

    If you’re confused about the election:

    A good overview of the timeline is here, but all the official RNE decisions are here, and all the J-Board decisions are here.

  9. Paracelsus says:

    thanks mike, that clears up a lot for me!

  10. Kat says:

    Zwack is the cadidate whose best friend is the chair of the committee that chose to invalidate the election results several times (the last, AFTER they counted the votes. Because if Zwack had won, we wouldn’t have to vote again).

  11. Sio says:

    Oh, come on. It’s simple. Closet-ful of identical hats. There’s probably a layer of invisible Santa hats all over the suite. Eventually, everyone will start to trip over them, wondering what that strange, soft thing is they stepped on they can’t see. It’ll start driving everyone mad…bwah hah hahhhhhh!

  12. Kali says:

    I like where your head’s at, Sio.

  13. Keiya says:

    Uh, I assumed it was because the santa hat is Penny’s, not hers. It’s just on loan, so her invisibility doesn’t spread to it.

  14. Keiya says:

    Of course, now I realize this makes no sense.
