View Full Version : Fear Factor, SDMB-style

So instead of trying to chew mouthfuls of live grubs or swimming naked in a pool full of leeches, I decide to stalk one of my favorite posters (hi, Gabriela!) while eating lunch. I came across this (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?p=7846942#post7846942) and this (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?p=7829581#post7828096) and this (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?p=7826789#post7826789) ... and I had to skip the rest of my lunch. :eek:
I think this has great potential for a new game show. Think of the franchise and merchandising possibilities! We just need a game show host, a dozen gullible photogenic teenagers, and a decent lawyer.

Well, the gullible-photogenic combo might be hard to find amongst Dopers... :p

See, I thought this was going to go something like this:
Challenge #1: "Post a thread in The Pit stating that you're so tired of gay people claiming they have rights - which they clearly don't because they're not human. The entire post sHOULD bE tYPED lIKE tHIS - with the first character lowercase and the subsequent characters capitalized. There must be at least three (3) glaring spelling errors, and you must call out at least two other Dopers in the following form: "I know that ____ and _____ agree with me, because they've proven their loyalty to the straight race through their postings." Finally, the title to the thread must be something like "My thread" or "You want to read this!" --- deliberately ambiguous."
Challenge #2: "Post a thread in MPSIMS claiming that your beautiful persian cat just had a litter of kittens AND ONE OF THEM WAS BORN A DWARF. Announce that it fits squarely in your palm, is very loving and affectionate, and the vet says it will stay that size for the rest of its life. Mention that it is so cute when it plays with a HUGE ball of yarn or gets inside a Starbuck's coffee cup. Then refuse to post pictures."
That's what I had in mind.

I just saw this!!!
I had three reactions:
1) I'm being stalked :eek:
2) I'm a favorite poster of Subway Prophet’s! :)
3) I'm a diet :dubious:
Uh, thanks, Subway Prophet. I think.
Lemme know if you wanna moderator for Fear Factor.
Any chance your words are written on tenement halls?
