I like hypothetical games. It's a good way to kill time until Friday, or until she's drunk enough to go home with you. Here are a few of my favorites.
The Finger Question - This one is simple, but always leads to thoughtful discussion. The question: how much money would you have to be paid to surgically remove one (1) finger of your choosing?
The parameters: the operation is professionally done, in a hospital; it's not a shoddy back-alley operation in South America. There's no risk of a botched surgery or any problems arising, and the finger is going to a good cause; maybe scientific research, or something.
You get to pick which finger it is, and you get one lump sum of cash. You're under anesthetic for the entire operation, so you don't feel anything; you simply wake up, and that finger is gone. Which finger, and how much?
Most people will start off with some ridiculous stance - "No way! It would have to be ten billion dollars for me to even think about it!" That's when you say, "So you wouldn't do it for a billion?" and watch as they shrug and reconsider. "I mean, I don't know..." More Here...
Happy Fat Tuesday All! Over the weekend I went to this really awesome "Mardi Gras" party. Great beer,great food, great people! There were even gummy bears that had been soaked in Vokda for a week. I had no idea that gummy bears had plumped up to three times their regular size, and was definitely favored by everyone.
At the end of the night two guys chugged the rest of the spiked punch from the punch bowl (and yours truly has it all on video). I was reminiscing with my friend Vy over dinner last night about the party, and she reminded me that Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday were about to come up. From there we got into a discussion about how “Fat Tuesday" came about, as well as "Mardi Gras," and I’d like to share it with you.More Here about Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras...

I remember the days when Jimmy Fallon was just a wee cast member on Saturday Night Live, doing his best not to lose his composure during sketches, and failing miserably. Of course, I still thought he was funny, but he's taken things to a whole new level.
His impressions are impeccable. If you watch the video above, you'll see him channel Charlie Sheen flawlessly, taking all Charlie's antics and turning them into what they, in actuality, already are: a really freaky ad campaign.
After the break, you'll see him take a folk rock approach to one of the most annoying songs in existence. More Here...
This is a guest post from Just A Guy Thing.The Heart Attack Grill, a diner in Chandler, AZ lost its 6'8", 575-pound spokesman when Blair River died at the age of 29. For those not familiar with the concept, the Heart Attack Grill serves some of the most unhealthy and bountiful food in the US under teh guise of being a tongue-in-cheek diet center. The waitresses dress as slutty nurses, and patrons that tip the scales at over 350 lbs eat for free. More Here...
