Lesson 4 - Bus! (SPRING 2022)

Post by Prof. Will Lestrange »

As per Assignment Four, we will play a counting game in this thread! (Bus is the way snakes refer to the buzzing sound made by busbira - which is the Parseltongue for 'bee/bumblebee/yellow buzz'. In particular, Bus is NOT the equivalent of the English word 'bus'.)

The rules of this game are as follows:
-The first post should correspond to the number 1 and each post should correspond to the number immediately following (the second post is 2, the third post is 3, and so on).
-Your post should ordinarily be your number in Parseltongue (counting, of course, should be done snekne).
​-Shorthand should NOT be used in this game; all numbers should be spelled out properly.
-If your number either is sisiva, contains the string sisiva, or is a multiple of sisiva, you should post with Bus! instead of your number.
-Do not make consecutive posts unless at least 36 hours has passed since your last post! (I may make posts to move the game along.)

NOTE: If you are told that your post is too short (some of the Parseltongue numbers are very short), you can feel free to sign your post with your HOL name in Parseltongue to pad its length to the minimum.
