Why is it always probably for the best?

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I know! I hate that little statement. For whose best? ARGH!

I have come to think that every third time you try to steal you get one, so it's just a pattern, no luck or chance involved. Certainly, no skill.

They (the electrons in the game or whoever) must just like you...its more like every 10th time for me.

I think you're right Missy. They're always saying a had a 50% chance, or 25% of doing it, but it doesn't happen 1/2 the time, or even 1/5 of the time! Yet somehow my carrots are always being stolen!

Mmm... I just stole a carrot while opening that thread . Have I already mentioned that I'm one of the top thieves?

I don't know but believe that it varies a bit. There are times when I haven't been able to steal carrot for long time and then I might snatch some consecutively.

Hey-I just got on here yesterday.I've had two offers to steal carrots.Turned them both down.I guess i think stealing carrots is not a friendly way for me to say hi.Then one popped up on the screen.I wasn't looking so it kinda got away.I don't think i have the energy to mess with them so if your carrots are up to be stolen it won't be me doing it.Sounds like a fun game though.Take care.Brian

Starfia, you have the high moral ground - but no carrots! Me, I try to steal them and I STILL have no carrots!
