Random Curiosity

RC Contest – Guess That Chibi!

randomc

Random Curiosity has a new banner – this time, it’s not from an anime. This banner is a collaboration project between me and Prooof. I’ve drawn the RC crew (current writers) as chibis while Prooof did the amazing equalizer background.

When I finished my drawings, the other writers suggested that we should make you – our dear readers – guess which writer each chibi represents. I thought I’d make a little contest out of this.

To make things a bit easier, I’ll let you use the bigger versions of the chibis. All chibis are numbered with ALT-text, in the order they appear on the banner from left to right. When you comment, number your guesses, or write them from left to right. I’ll make a post later with the correct answers and the winner’s chibi.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
8 9 10 11 12 13 14

Contest: Guess which writer each chibi represents by leaving a comment
Prize: The first one to get all 14 correct will receive a chibi drawn by me
Rules: You can only comment once, I’ll only read your first comment. Writers are not allowed to participate!
Hints: I’ll leave hints every now and then.
Contact: Use a valid e-mail address (in the comments section, don’t write it down in the comment itself) so I can contact you if you’re the winner. I’ll contact the winner regarding the chibi’s design!

Hint 1: Gravatars, introduction posts, author names, shows we’ve covered
Hint 2: One of the writers has a name that means “high” in Japanese
Hint 3: This chibi is similar (pose) to the one that was used in this writer’s introduction post
Hint 4: Using the three hints above, you can figure out 12 of the 14 chibis
Hint 5: The toothbrush is from Nisemonogatari, the staff is from Tsubasa Chronicle, the baseball uniform is from Cross Game, the sword is from Sword Art Online, the pocket watch is from Pandora Hearts, the t-shirt logo is from FAIRY TAIL
Hint 6: One person got all 14 chibis correct, but unfortunately, it wasn’t on the first try – it’s either in a second try or a fixed answer

Let the game begin – let’s see how well you know us!

WE HAVE A WINNER! A post for that will probably be up next week! I want to thank everyone who participated, and thank you all for the kind words about the chibis. I really appreciate it!

    RandomC has some very nice looking writers :]

  • June 1, 2012 at 4:26 pmJimhawk

    The new banner is wonderful, it’s a shame I can’t accurately guess all 14 of you, though I can pin a few down. Thanks Stereoman for the chibis and instead of trying to guess, I’ll just wish good luck to everyone else!

  • June 1, 2012 at 4:32 pmWorldWiz

    The last chibi looks like yoruichi.

  • June 1, 2012 at 4:32 pmProoof

    i ordered a poster of this for my room \( ̄ー ̄)/
    stereo’s art is awesome

    • June 1, 2012 at 4:56 pmCherrie

      You made a wallpaper?! Totally using it ^^

    • June 1, 2012 at 11:31 pmJason Isenberg

      *set* man that black is nice, easier for me to see stuff xD

  • June 1, 2012 at 4:35 pmZephyr

    I.. WHAT I’M NOT ALLOWED TO GUESS. :x

    • June 1, 2012 at 6:30 pmXumbra

      I’m not allowed to guess either :S

    • June 1, 2012 at 6:37 pmXumbra

      I know! We can start a Not Allowed To Guess Club and sulk in the corner! Like (un)cool kids.

  • June 1, 2012 at 4:53 pmIsabel

    Oooh, didn’t know that we had that many female writers here. Go female anime bloggers! :) Awesome job with the banner, Stereoman and Prooof. Also, good luck to all those guessing!

  • June 1, 2012 at 4:56 pmGuardian Enzo

    What, I can’t guess? Foul!

    • June 1, 2012 at 9:16 pmCarolV

      I think you are the easiest one to guess. Haha

  • June 1, 2012 at 5:06 pmlkm

    “Guess which writer each chibi represents” how the hell we supposed to guess when we know nothing about you?=\

    • June 1, 2012 at 5:13 pmverdant

      I like movies, long walks on the beach, and clichés…

      • June 1, 2012 at 5:41 pmlkm

        lol, its not really helping.

      • June 1, 2012 at 5:48 pmverdant

        Yeah, this is probably hard for people who haven’t chatted with us on IRC, so hop on and say hi, we promise we won’t bite!

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:01 pmStilts

        I’ll bite. So will SeishunOtoko. And probably Luxor. High chance on Cybersteel, too. Oh and definitely KoroshiyaKi.

        Croos may keep everyone in line, though. Probably. (maybe)

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:12 pmMrRei

        I don’t think Croos will keep people in line.. he’ll probably bite first. Heck, he scares people out of the channel..

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:27 pmKoroshiyaKi

        You aren’t considered “one of us” until you’ve sent Croos into the v0id at least 10 times.

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:35 pmXumbra

        I’d wager that sending Croos into the v0id just 5 times is sufficient.

        And even by that definition, I’m still not considered one of you guys :S

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:38 pm0927123

        Hopped on IRC and people weren’t so welcoming. :S I was traumatized…

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:52 pmXumbra

        Just pretend that everyone’s joking all the time, and you should be fine :P

        By the way, the channel activity varies by the hour. So if you join the channel and no one’s talking, everyone is probably sleeping. Just wait a bit and people will start talking again.

    • June 1, 2012 at 6:59 pmMrRei

      An encounter with Croos is an understandable trauma… It could scar you for life!

      • June 1, 2012 at 7:06 pm†Croos†

        Welp, an encounter with MrRei is death. You might now even want to go to randomc anymore. Thats why I go first before MrRei does.

      • June 2, 2012 at 10:18 amD-LaN

        BOTH of u are no better….. Totally why croos x rei existed….. (Don v0id spam me plz)

      • June 2, 2012 at 2:34 pmLuxor

        Quite a discerning mind you have there D-LaN.

  • June 1, 2012 at 5:12 pmMrRei

    To be fair, I should share some hints provided in IRC..
    - Zanibas is between 1-14 and is the one with a hair.

    That’s all we got for now..

    • June 1, 2012 at 6:04 pmZanibas

      Hint 5: I don’t like cabbage.

      What, that didn’t help!?

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:23 pmClick

        Pfft, clearly an obvious hint which needs to be deciphered, folks. Feeble minds just can’t comprehend it.

        Cabbage. Cabbage grows in smooth, rocky grounds with worms and beetles. Beetles. Beelz. Beelzebub. The first episode of Beelzebub aired on January 9, 2011. January 9, 2011. 1-9-11. 1 plus 9 plus 11 is equal to 21. 21 is a card game. Card game. Car gale. Cargile. Steve Cargile was an American football safety who played for the Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys. Back to the Future III featured the Doc and Marty as cowboys. Doc and Marty. Doctor Marty. Dock party. Dock parties often occur during the summer. The summer is often hot. Hot summers. Hot days. Hot heads. 102 degrees Fahrenheit is a notable temperature for people suffering fevers. One hundred two. One hand two. One and two. 1 and 2…

        ZANIBAS IS #12. YOU CAN’T FOOL ME.

      • June 1, 2012 at 6:52 pmKoroshiyaKi

        Okay Glen Beck.

      • June 2, 2012 at 10:25 amD-LaN

        How the hell I suppose to calculate this out if every writers identity (ex. Stereo-kun) is dat complicated!? Zani, its not helping unless I am a powerful supercomputer….

    • June 1, 2012 at 6:20 pmMrRei

      Zani, you’re giving too much hints.. people might think you’re easy! :3

  • June 1, 2012 at 5:14 pm†Croos†

    Should I join? >:)

    • June 2, 2012 at 11:52 amXumbra

      Do it! Claim the prize before everyone else!

  • June 1, 2012 at 5:37 pmWaffles

    Okay, let’s have a crack at this:

    Chibi 1: Suzuku, because Suzuku covered MM. MM is about S and M. A toothbrush can be used in S & M play if used properly. Genius.

    Chibi 2: Patrik: look at all the books! He did light novels, I like light novels, so this works out! However, that coffee is dangerously close to damaging that material. Watch it you chibi!

    Chibi 3: Takaii is this one for some reason. Call me crazy, but Takaii always came off as a really pretty bishoujo. Whether or not Takaii is a pretty bishoujo is still up in the air, but no matter who Takaii is, it’ll be alright :)

    Chibi 4: Omni, because he is our eternal king and savior, who will come again to judge us on his white horse of awesome. I guess the horse’s name is Kiiragi.

    Chibi 5: Trillian, I knew the guy to be an amazing user of the staff, and we even sparred once upon the cliffs of Georgia whilst thinking of new post ideas.

    Chibi 6: Moomba. If you hung out with Moomba as I have, you’d know that he’d always call Yakuhai in his Mahjong calls. Every. Single. Time.

    Chibi 7: Sixthdawn. Baseball requires a lot of practice. A lot of practice requires daily training. Sixthdawn did the daily dose once for awhile a long time ago. Therefore, sixthdawn is baseball.

    Chibi 8: Kiiragi. T’was a little eccentric fellow who kind of caused a fire with his experiments at times, but in the end, he always made sure to “bury his dead”, if you know what I mean! *wink*

    Chibi 9: Zephyr. Sometimes Zephyr likes to mention his toast in IRC when eating breakfast. I also like toast. Stereoman, if it ends up that Zephyr is actually a guy, Kyouya is also an acceptable guess.

    Chibi 10: Verdant. That sword. That sleek getup. It absolutely strikes his writing style. Perfectly. How it connects, idk, but damn it I’m going with my guts here and placing all my cards on the table! Also, that sword looks like excalibur.

    Chibi 11: Jaalin. Jaalin was always a weird little fellow, but boy was that weirdness random and funny. Obviously here he is portraying the less known “wooden sticks and beer” fetish as a shoutout to those poorly publicized souls. I salute you for using your chibi as such!

    Chibi 12: Uh…Divine? He’s got the swag and the cool. Hey, inside that pocket watch might be a piece of paper containing the code he’s working on for his new project! The mystery of it all is what characterized Divine, so I’m placing my bet here.

    Chibi 13: Zanibas. I don’t read Zanibas’ posts much, but from her introductory post and his excerpts, she sounds like a quirky girl. Her writing style is pretty cheerful and random, which is what this chibi obviously is trying to portray.

    Chibi 14: Stereoman. I occasionally lurk around the IRC channel, but when I pay attention, I often see Stereoman kicking people into the v0id program. Iunno about the axe, since she seems competitive and not vicious, but it’s a good fit for him :).

    Do I win now!? :D

    • June 1, 2012 at 5:40 pmlkm

      i think you wrong about Stereoman. he’s fairy tail fun so the picture Chibi 11 is Stereoman.

    • June 1, 2012 at 5:42 pmMasterDragonKnight

        “I knew the guy to be an amazing user of the staff, and we even sparred once upon the cliffs of Georgia whilst thinking of new post ideas.

        If that didn’t tip you off, obviously someone didn’t actually read the explanations :P

    • June 1, 2012 at 7:09 pmterrukallan

      I see someone likes playing with sock puppets. ;)

  • June 1, 2012 at 5:42 pmlkm

    shit i mean Chibi 13

    • June 1, 2012 at 5:44 pmlkm

      Chibi 13 is Stereoman
      and Prooof Chibi 10 (its looks like soul reaper from bleach)

      • June 1, 2012 at 9:24 pm†Croos†

        If you actually see Prooof’s avatar you might reconsider. Thats a hint by the way

  • June 1, 2012 at 5:48 pmStormflux

  • June 1, 2012 at 5:51 pmClick

    Well, this is… difficult. 1 in a bazillion chance to get this right. Here goes nothing :P

    From left to right
    Top: Verdant, Takaii, Bakamochi, Asobi, Moomba, Stilts, Enzo
    Bottom: Unlisted, Cherrie, Divine, Proof, Zanibas, Stereoman, Zephyr

    If I didn’t have gender confusion issues before, I definitely do now, lol.

    I believe I managed to guess a few based on hints such as the Fairy Tail symbol on 13, but some of the series relating to the pictures didn’t match the gender I had imagined, so uh… I kind of just went on gut instinct. So errrr… so sorry in advance to all the gender-bended folks? :D

    And to whoever’s #9… meow. Expect pick up lines later. LOL.

    • June 1, 2012 at 6:21 pm†Croos†

      not bad. :)

  • June 1, 2012 at 6:19 pmSeishun Otoko

    Now the important question is when will we get the awesome side banners back? RC without sexhair is just plain…

  • June 1, 2012 at 6:26 pmKoroshiyaKi

    You aren’t considered “one of us” until you’ve sent Croos into the v0id at least 10 times.

    • June 1, 2012 at 6:35 pm†Croos†

      I’m also WITH one of the Chibi’s.
      If you get it and go to IRC you might get the hint.

      Though if you’re a reader you have a greater chance to get the correct answer. Someone like Click for example.

  • June 1, 2012 at 6:28 pm†Croos†

    @Stereoman
    Why am I with Show Spoiler ▼

    in Chibi 14.
    v0id is suffering.
    ;A;

  • June 1, 2012 at 6:51 pmshamaticgrl

    I thought I saw Mephisto at the bottom

  • June 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm†Croos†

    The most easiest is unlisted. He is actually not listed there.

    • June 1, 2012 at 7:48 pmMasterDragonKnight

      Ba dum tish!

      Thank you and good night, everybody! ^^

  • June 1, 2012 at 7:16 pmIntricateRadiance

    Dear lord, you people are extremely amusing. :P

    ….

    And scary. O_o

  • June 1, 2012 at 7:19 pmVivace

    Should make one for Omni

    • June 1, 2012 at 7:36 pm†Croos†

      Omni is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy mysterious, I tell you and only Divine knows him.

    • June 1, 2012 at 8:37 pmXumbra

      Omni is actually invisible. True story.

  • June 1, 2012 at 7:19 pmMrRei

    I’m sleepy so I don’t really know what I’m saying anymore..

    • June 1, 2012 at 7:51 pmMasterDragonKnight

      I’m sleepy so I don’t really know what I’m saying anymore..

      Words. English words to be precise.

  • June 1, 2012 at 7:23 pmKentaiyoshimi

    I love all the Chibis, but my favourite (design-wise) ones are Chibi 3 and 11

    Might as well take a shot, even though I don’t know the writers very well.

    1. Verdant
    2. Asobi
    3. Moomba
    4. Takaii
    5. Zephyr

    9. Cherrie
    (both girls, just matched them by what I think they’re personalities are closer to)
    11. Stilts (Blonde and Drunk)
    14. Zanibas (I just have a feeling that Zanibas is Yandere which fits with the axe and blood)

    I have no idea for the rest.

    • June 1, 2012 at 10:42 pmCherrie

      It does make it more challenging when people don’t know our genders….o_o

      I was wondering too if there was a gallery archive of all the past banners used on Random Curiosity?

      • June 2, 2012 at 1:52 amXumbra

        That sounds like a good idea! Maybe they’ll add one if enough people demand it.

  • June 1, 2012 at 10:50 pmLuxor

    14. Zanibas – next to MrRei and KoroshiyaKi, pushes Croos into the v0id the most.

  • June 2, 2012 at 12:23 amFT5Havok

    Divine is the computer program that Omni left for the RC community ! hahaha

  • June 2, 2012 at 1:42 ammuika

    These are so adorable!! Can I do fanart of the writers omo~~~ *w*

    • June 2, 2012 at 11:12 amverdant

      Go for it, it’ll be interesting to see what you come up with!

  • June 2, 2012 at 1:59 amThe Moondoggie

    THE TALLEST ONE IS STILTS! That dude with the staff…
    #3 is Cherrie, unless she’s actually a he….
    Divine is the one with a crown(all hail Divine)…

    LOL I guess I need to spend more time here if I am to guess the rest….

    • June 2, 2012 at 4:12 pmCherrie

      There is no evidence that I’m actually a female… >_> I could be a hermaphrodite!

  • June 2, 2012 at 2:58 amZen

    This is my guess. Well, not so much my guess, but a piecemeal construct that is the sum of all the other guesses posted thus far. If it is right (or anywhere closer to right than previous guesses) credit goes not to me, but to every previous guesser and commenter. Hopefully after having carefully examined the reasoning of each poster (where is was provided) and scrutinizing replies for useful hints the product has inched ever so slightly closer to the truth. And as its fragments are cumulatively gathered, may one those who come after me draw even nearer to it until it is finally attained…

    1. verdant – toothbrush
    2. Asobi – has an unread collection of Song of Ice and Fire due to laziness
    3. Bakamochi – same pose as intro post
    4. Divine – rulership and divinity, crown and angel wings
    5. Prooof – white mage
    6. Moomba – he plays mahjong right?
    7. Enzo – he loves Cross Game and other sports
    8. Zephyr – he’s in biomolecular science
    9. Cherrie – she said she loves food
    10. unlisted – he likes to play RPGs and other games
    11. Stilts – a writer needs his booze
    12. Zanibas – studies cognitive science (Hypno vibe)
    13. Stereoman – blogs Fairy Tail
    14. takaii- as to why I have no idea; the process of elimination forced him into this spot

    Unless someone already solved the puzzle far earlier on in the chain of information- in which case I’m waaay far down from the right link; congrats if that’s the case. ;)

      I’m absolutely touched that you’d find my reasons good enough to copy 9 of them. :D

      • June 2, 2012 at 2:35 pmZen

        That’s right, should’ve acknowledged that I took that many of yours, forgot to do so for some reason; how rude of me… Special thanks to Luxor! ;)

  • June 2, 2012 at 3:54 amkuro

    Do the writers actually know the answers? Or only the one the corresponds to themselves? Heck I wonder if there are any that cant tell which one is them.

    • June 2, 2012 at 9:03 amStilts

      We all know, though Stereo made most of us guess when they were first finished. It’s pretty hard, though. Even knowing a lot about everyone and having one or two spoiled, I only got 12 on my first guess. A few of them are tough.

      So good luck~ ^__^

    Here’s my guess, although I have a feeling I might be off by a lot.
    Some guesses I have reasons for while others are pure intuitive.
    Well, here goes…

    2. Divine (Looks tired)
    3. Cherrie (Kuroyukihime)
    4. Takaii (The one left over… sorry)

    And I like the new banner. Just a problem I see. Spoilered for length.
    Show Spoiler ▼

    Just my two cents and sorry for the rant. I know it’s hard to create and edit this stuff.
    It’s still a cool banner :)

    • June 2, 2012 at 10:23 aminfo600

      you should download the wallpaper version, it shows the words better (and there’s already one above the banner >.>)

      • June 2, 2012 at 10:43 am†Croos†

        I think he is only referring to the banner not being clear with the site title and not the Wallpaper.

  • June 2, 2012 at 9:47 amD-LaN

    How the hell I know who’s who? And I even mess around in IRC……

    Dem I can’t spam the IRC to find out clues ‘cuz I have to wake up early for field trip tomorrow I will guess another day (and absorbing hints frm those smart guys) Good luck u guys. Plz drops some hints plz. {/le me brainwash everyone}

  • June 2, 2012 at 10:46 amPlayer

    Wow, really cute. It is amazing how many writers RC all of a sudden has, so the new banner is a cool touch. Definitely better than picking as the theme one particular anime. Bravo.

  • June 2, 2012 at 11:10 amleah

    wow, haha i don’t know why but i didn’t realize there were so many writers now on RC! I have no idea who anyone is, lol, but i really love this banner! the chibis are adorable!! nice job!

  • June 2, 2012 at 11:16 amLightnDark

    Spent way too much time analyzing the comments and the so-called “hints” orz..

    1 Verdant
    2 Asobi
    3 Bakamochi
    4 Divine
    5 Proof
    6 Moomba
    7 Enzo
    8 Zephyr
    9 Cherrie
    10 Unlisted
    11 Stilts
    12 Takaii
    13 Stereoman
    14 Zanibas

    PS: If this isn’t the correct answer for future guessers, 5 10 12 are the ones that might need switching around, 2 and 8 is also a fairly wild guess but the rest I’m pretty certain.

    PSS: Contest is srs bsness.

  • June 2, 2012 at 11:52 am†Croos†

    Is this a test for my stalking ability?

    Chibi 1.) Does tootbrush ring something – Show Spoiler ▼

    Chibi 13.) The person who created this post of course – Show Spoiler ▼

    Chibi 14.) (-_-, ) the most yandere person opposite to me and the the v0ided person is either Stereoman or Me but since this is for all people to understand Stereoman made it for people in the post to understand it as well. – Show Spoiler ▼

    This test result is 85.714% accurate.

    • June 2, 2012 at 12:19 pm†Croos†

      Ok, changing my answer a bit. I figured something will reading this post and that its not a bit complicated and you need to be observant.
      Chibi 2.) Poor guy his name got erased from the paper – Show Spoiler ▼

      Chibi 6.) Sitting from a high place and translate in romanji ? – Show Spoiler ▼

    • June 2, 2012 at 12:45 pm†Croos†

      Chibi 8.) Spelling correction Show Spoiler ▼

    • June 2, 2012 at 2:05 pmZen

      Chibi 5.) Gravatar and Staff hint
      I bet Stereoman ran out of ideas so he bais-ed it on the avatar :D Prooof

      Unlikely, don’t you think? Considering that Prooof’s gravatar is Fai D. Flourite from Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle; hardly a white mage. And he was directly involved in creating the chibis, so my guess is that some of the ideas for them are his input, even if they were all actually drawn solo by Stereoman- and it wouldn’t make sense if he didn’t have a good idea about what to represent himself.

      • June 2, 2012 at 2:13 pmZen

        Wait scrap that, I was an idiot not to notice the design of his staff…

  • June 2, 2012 at 1:05 pmterrukallan

    I think Croos is a better stalker than me, but here are my guesses:
    1) verdant
    2) Takaii
    3) BakaMochi
    4) unlisted
    5) Prooof
    6) Divine
    7) Enzo
    8) Zephyr
    9) Cherrie
    10) Asobi
    11) Stilts
    12) Moomba
    13) Stereoman
    14) Zanibas

  • June 2, 2012 at 1:43 pmZen

    20-30 posts later, here’s what I gather from all the additional information; my revised guess (Mark II…XP). Many thanks to all who have posted in between and special thanks to Croos for his attention to detail.

    1. Verdant – toothbrush
    2. Takaii- busy and exhausted, need I say more?
    3. Bakamochi – same pose as intro post
    4. Divine – rulership and divinity, crown and angel wings and don’t forget the workhorse
    5. Unlisted- Huge Rpg fan; white mage?!?
    6. Asobi- the “zhong” kanji is short for “zhong guo ren”- he’s Chinese Singaporean; the one writer we know to be definitively Asian. Represents the Orient. Mahjong tile is functions as a stylistic touch, unless he actually plays mahjong and we don’t know about it.
    7. Enzo – he loves Cross Game and other sports
    8. Zephyr – he’s in biomolecular science
    9. Cherrie – she said she loves food
    10. Proof- bleach; cool bro with a sword and he was in on making this so it makes sense that he’d want to make himself look cool…dude, the trench coat is overkill…XP
    11. Stilts – a writer needs his booze
    12. Moomba- pandora hearts and geass insignia (Special thanks to Croos for noticing the tiny details)
    13. Stereoman – blogs Fairy Tail
    14. Zanibas- the yandere voider

  • June 2, 2012 at 1:44 pmSacchi

    They’re all different faces of Omni, obviously. There is but one true answer then :D

  • June 2, 2012 at 2:12 pmZen

    No wait, revision Mark III

    1. Verdant – toothbrush
    2. Takaii- busy and exhausted, need I say more?
    3. Bakamochi – same pose as intro post
    4. Divine – rulership and divinity, crown and angel wings and don’t forget the workhorse
    5. Prooof- it actually is based on the gravatar, my mistake- it IS Fai’s staff…not just some generic white mage.
    6. Asobi- the “zhong” kanji is short for “zhong guo ren”- he’s Chinese Singaporean; the one writer we know to be definitively Asian. Represents the Orient. Mahjong tile is functions as a stylistic touch, unless he actually plays mahjong and we don’t know about it. And drinks tea…
    7. Enzo – he loves Cross Game and other sports
    8. Zephyr – he’s in biomolecular science
    9. Cherrie – she said she loves food
    10. Unlisted- RPG player
    11. Stilts – a writer needs his booze
    12. Moomba- pandora hearts and geass insignia (Special thanks to Croos for noticing the tiny details)
    13. Stereoman – blogs Fairy Tail
    14. Zanibas- the yandere voider

    • June 2, 2012 at 2:40 pmZen

    well, i was gonna guess, but everyone already guessed already so haha.

    I switched Zephyr and Zanibas because I wasn’t careful when typing late last night and they both started with a Z and my hand writing was horribly scribbly. Though half of these are probably still not right >.>

    Someone win yet? The post has been unpinned o.O

    BTW, hint 6 ruins the all the fun. People have a 1/87,178,291,200 chance of getting it right. Now people just need to copy paste their choice out of 100+ comments and the odds are technically even better given that only a few people made corrections/multiple guesses.

    • June 3, 2012 at 2:14 pmMasterDragonKnight

      Oh, I didn’t even realize there were hints.

      If I get it by some random chance, then the original poster of the choices can have the prize. I was just doing it for fun.
