    ~ Spot the Reference! ~

    Well lookie here. References, memes, quotes, sayings; my profile in a nutshell. I've been posting those since forever, and some time ago I got the most absolutely great brilliant awesome idea: a reference hunt contest! I got a spare game for a prize, so everything is perfect.

    To win a copy of Frozen Synapse you must:
    Be the first to explain the references in that spoiler below! All old profile posts of mine. I've not included the most obscure ones, nor the blatantly obvious ones.

    And no, you don't have to explain them all. Every day, the count decreases by 5. Today, you must explain them all. Tomorrow, you must explain 95 of them. The day after tomorrow, the amount will be 90, and so on until someone succeeds or the amount reaches 25.
    Also, you can use Google since I can't stop you doing so and this might be impossible otherwise. But please, at least go through them all once before "cheating" and mark the ones you got without help somehow. Also try to be accurate as possible.

    Here they are, from newest to oldest. The referenced thing can be a quote, movie, meme, or just a silly fact. Also sometimes very vague and can be cleverly twisted to serve a relevant purpose. Have "fun"!

    1. The Promised Day.
    2. Filled with DETERMINATION.
    3. Fezzes are cool.
    4. El Psy Congroo
    5. Long ago in a distant land.

    ~ Giveaway! ~

    On a side note, I've been on the forums for two years now. That's a long frickin' time for me to stay around in a community-place-thing. To celebrate this fact I'm giving gifts to you! I got a small, cheap mystery game which I haven't really bothered to do anything with it so I just give it to someone else. To enter the giveaway, say Merry Christmas backwards.

    You have time to enter the giveaway until 24th December. That's when the winner is announced, too.

    Bump for the giveaway. Ends tomorrow, and now it's only Zetlin VS Wilfrey.

    Also it's 80 references to be recognized at the moment. Currently the leading (and only, you lazy butts) contestant is quitaren with 35 right answers.
    It's a 23€ game, you know! (or actually 2€ since steam sale >_>)

    Okay the giveaway is over.

    My favorite method, random number generator, provided us with a winner.
    A number between 1-10: Zetlin wins if even, Wilfrey wins if uneven.

    The result:

    Pretty pretttyyy goood. 26 correct, still behind quitaren who has 35. Some references you actually recognized from things that are already referencing the original thing, which is kinda expected. The rabbit hole goes deep, but will you go deeper? no points from any references I made in this post
