Right, so...

Go through the first 500 tidbits in the 500 Things topic, and nominate however many you think should win. The topics that receive the most nominations will be put into my upcoming video, "Ten Things We Learned From Assassin's Creed II". And as an added bonus, all the members who contributed to the 500 Things topic will be in the credits, and those who had winning entries will receive a place of honor at the top of the credits and throughout the video.

Get crackin'!

number 338:

kornball - If you are hooked up to a virtual reality/ancestral memory device in the back on a moving truck while your friends are taking you to a new home your friends will be nice enough to never arrive so you can spend as much time in the device as you want despite the fact that it is eating away your sanity.

Okay, you didn't specify how many we could nominate so, excluding my own, I've narrowed it down to my favourite ten, in the order they were posted:

60. Using a ladder to get over a 3-meter-high fence is stupid when you can build a flying machine to get over it. (thekyle0)

124. The Pope is willing to give a substantial amount of deadly weapons to someone "as long as nobody is killed" with them. (Al_Mualims_Nan)

132. Adam and Eve had no buttcracks. (kingbren08)

164. Over multiple decades you never have to use the restroom once. (mystic_wolf83)

175. Hallucinating is only dangerous if it lasts more than 30 seconds. (Avl521)

204. Despite working for and protecting the most dangerous and secretive organization in the world, Abstergo's security officers will get their asses whooped by a girl. (HewieAlbino)

297. Where there's pigeon poops, there's gotta be a stack of hay around. (Koemi)

375. You can beat the Pope up and get away with it. (EzioAssassin51)

i'm guessing AzureRequiem will count the number of nominations for any that have received at least 1 nomination, and then the 10 posts receiving the highest number of nominations (after a certain time) will be featured in the video!

I would think that more votes are required to get a definitive top ten. To be honest, I'm a little surprised that there hasn't been more response to this thread, given the number of contributors to the original one...

i think that when we've found the top 10 we should make a poll thread to see everyones favourite and then count down in the video. also are you planning to show footage of the things that make top 10 ?

By me:

32. Over the course of 30 years, nobody in the Renaissance ever had to use the bathroom, or take a bath, or change clothes, or sleep.

By Neo_Age:

31. Street doctors sell hallucinogenic poisons to someone in a hood and sporting many weapons, repeatedly, without asking questions and for the same price.

32. People are stupid enough to run and grab money thats been thrown at a guard suffering from the above mentioned poisons.

33. Contrary to logic, the bodies of ancient assassins from all over the ancient world are located in rennissance italy and in elaberate crypts ussually located in churches.

34. Giant squids live under Venice.

35. You can wear the same outfit for 20 years and no one will figure out YOU are the assassin thats been going around killing people.

36. Ezio perfers his coffee with cream and sugar.

37. Dispite never having seen a handheld pistol before, black smiths can sell sets of 6 bullets complete with an assassins logo to you, along with throwing knives and smoke bombs.


Yeah, they're kinda misnumbered...
