There are a couple options:
- This person has a study hall/access to a computer during the day (like you or I right now).
- This person no longer has school/has graduated/is in college.

This eliminates AlphaTauri (who has finals week right now) and me (my study halls are 9:20-10:10 and 11:10-12:35 - page 5).

People out of school: FullMetalMaple, TheGenius, EASTstroudsburg13, Infinity Flat, zyzzyva98, sweetcoop, hangfromthefloor. (And, you know, anyone in college.)
People with time during the day: aubrey048, Luo.
Others? Is this incorrect?
Z's on vacation, with limited internet access. And I doubt hangy would be awake at 10 AM EST.

Also, my finals start tomorrow (today was a regular school day). Either way, I have no "free" internet access during school...Big Broth- I mean, the school district, tracks everything we do on the computers.

I don't think Infinity Flat is done with school yet, but I might be wrong. Calendar

True, I'm out of school, but this is my big dance performance week - I was at rehearsal (sans Internet) when the sassy posted.

Also, wasn't the post at 9:11 am CDT? That would be 7:11 am Pacific time. It might be possible for someone in that time zone to post before school.

That means Z's out (oh yeah, that's why he ended the last sassy game). Hangy was awake during my third-hour study hall, at 10 AM CDT. Close enough. I don't think he cares enough about the forums (or even checks them), though.

Oh, my mistake. I was just looking through the random thread to see who had posted during the school day before. The post led me to believe he was out of school.

So, suspect list: TheGenius, EASTstroudsburg13, Infinity Flat, sweetcoop, hangfromthefloor (?), Luo. Are there more people out of school?

Here is your next clue:
In Northern Michigan I claim my realm,
My history was such you could not tell.
For what once was a fixture staple,
I am now capable
Of much more.
Crawl into your cave, you're just a bot.
It's not about why, it's about why not.
I believe that I know the solution to the clue. Littleboy mentioned earlier about Northern Michigan looking like a mammoth by saying, "Northern Michigan - upper peninsula - sassy may think it looks like a mammoth?". A mammoth is an animal that lived when early humans lived, and people don't fully know the history of early human species while a mammoth was also a source of food, "a fixture staple". In addition, mammoths and early humans are oftentimes displayed at museums while early humans lived in caves. In addition, the assassin gave the hint of "johnson" which could refer to Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th President, and Croman74 was the 36th assassin. In addition, Croman74 is a reference to early humans. Therefore, I protect Croman74.

I wouldn't read too much into that post time; any one really determined with a smartphone can post then.

In fact, anybody off school would probably avoid posting at that time; too obvious.

So we should ignore it. I mean, look at where it got us last game.

More evidence to support my conclusion is that the assassin wrote: "I am now capable
Of much more." (two lines) and "It's not about why, it's about why not." The first quote could refer to how early humans evolved while the second quote could refer to the fact that early humans no longer exist (evolved to modern day humans).

Nonetheless, other officers still need to protect people. You have 26 minutes.

That's true, but aren't you the one who nails people on post times? :P

Fixture staple! That's like rice! I like rice. I protect myself.
