Can I be more specific? Yes! Will I do it here when your attention span is limited? No, I’ll save my rambling verbose responses for later.
Playing board games!
“Why hello there, I’m Chris” he starts, while you catch a whiff of a deodorant that is not for his demography “…and I have a question for you.”
“Here we go” you wonder to yourself, “and that is?” you actually voice.
[insert any of the following questions to follow]
“What’s the largest prime number you can think of off the top of your head?”
“Do you know what the difference between a nerd and a geek is?”
“How would you design a house if the geometry wasn’t Euclidean?”
“If you could ask a question to someone you’ve just met to hopefully hook up with them, what would you ask?
“Have you ever wanted to splash a drink in a guy’s face like in the TV shows?”
Visual Media (Comedy): Scott Pilgram vs. the World.
Every time I watch it I pick up on new things, it is a fresh kind of funny, it has plenty of gaming references, the comic book aesthetic, the music, the split takes…
Visual Media (Comedy/Horror): Cabin in the Woods.
Joss Whedon is genius, breaks the mould in all the right places with twists to actually keep you guessing.
Visual Media (Surreal/Silly): Excel Saga.
Probably not the best first anime to watch, and that problem is even worse when you watch the -last- episode first, but by golly did it set an impression!
Audiophony (Cause that’s a word): Gomez, The Exies, Celldweller, The Glitch Mob, Bjork, Gotye, Muse.
Yeah, ok, it is hard to pick one.
Written Media: Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality HPMOR
I liked the original works, but I kept thinking there are a lot of unanswered questions -- this story asks them, and a whole bunch more! It’s funny, it’s moving, it’s sad, it’s educational and, it’s the best thing I’ve ever read!
Should Euthanasia be legalised? Are our thoughts limited by language? What would be your graffiti tag be? Is there such a thing as Good and Evil - or is it just a construct of mankind? What would you want to be reincarnated as? What rate do you charge your free time at? Why is it that this OKCupid profile is replacing all my double spacing between each sentence with single spacing? Why are there lots of people that hunt for the best parking spot in a shopping center when there are hundreds of free ones like 20 meters away? When is the next Evangelion Movie actually going to come out, and is it going to be screened in Australia, and will it be subtitled when it does? How would I go about making the most profit from owning a Portal Gun? If my friends were going to make a band, who would have what roles? If I was able to ask Tim Minchin one question, what question would it be? Do old people wear old people clothes because old people wear old people clothes, or because they just got older wearing the clothes they used to wear? What am I going to be like when I grow old? What would my life be like if I was born a girl? If I had a time machine, how would I use it? Furthermore, would I be able to use it and not create a paradox? Would the rate of inflation be different if humans lived for radically longer period of time? What would I do if I was “elected” ruler of Earth and how long would it be before I was assassinated? If I could relive my life from any point in my life so far, would I, and if so, from what point?
[How much would you sell/lease your hearing/sight?, How awesome the fan fiction "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality," why people are mentioning they like using the Oxford Comma in OKC profiles, especially when it raises just as many ambiguities in its absence (((oh, look how fancy I am in using a grammatical device that has little practical application))), If it were your job to consume alcohol, how much could you realistically be able to consume?]
That is seriously the tip of the iceberg.
You have something interesting to say. Or you want to hear me rabbit on about something which I hope sounds interesting.
You want to play some board games. Cause board games are awesome. My favourites at the moment are Alchemists, One Night Ultimate Werewolf, and Splendor.
