Can You Challenge People to Watch a TV Show?

I would similarly like to challenge people to vote for a particular candidate and to donate to specific worthy causes.

“I demand satisfaction!”


“I challenge you, to a du-el!”

“What are your terms, good sir?”

“We shall watch ghost stories provided by the Channel of Travel at dawn, three days hence. My second will contact your second to decide which side of the couch we each must sit upon.”

I guess it works?

Ha! I’ll show you. I already watch them. Take that sirrah!

Piggybacking off this topic, is it permissible under the rules here to declare a thumb war?

I meant to challenge them to view something that might change their beliefs. Or at least question them. :slight_smile:

Watching hokey ghost stories on a mislabeled channel is not going to do that.

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

Who’s the more foolish – the fool, or the fool who follows him? :slight_smile:

Heh. I still remember the last time someone made a challenge like this to me. It was fun.

Great username/avatar/post combo.

Blame @Darren_Garrison – his post inspired mine. (And, just for the record, I wasn’t referring to Darren with my post. :smiley: )

I’ve never seen the Casper movie, but I’d be willing to watch it to see if it changes my belief in friendly ghosts.

This “challenge” doesn’t have a ghost of a chance.

And I don’t need to watch a lame tv show to be exposed to ridiculous beliefs. I’ve got the whole world for that.

I dunno, man. You of all people should be concerned about a phantom menace.

That one was really forced.

It certainly was not the joke I was looking for.

Do you believe in The Force? No? I challenge you to view all three Star Wars trilogies. It might change your lack of faith, or at least question it.

“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”

A scene that should make any rational viewer question their disbelief.

What are the ghosts involvements with regards to the stories?

Do they write the stories?

Do they read the stories to inner city children who one day dream of growing up to be the change they want to see in their communities by running for city office only to have their dreams dashed by rich Society Folk who have the backing of large monetary bribes of corrupt local businesses who want to rezone the neighborhoods, the children grew up in, into business parks so they can give lucrative contracts to their friends in the construction trades to build shoddy vermin infested store fronts and then rent those stores out at ridiculous prices back to the Uncle of one these children who’s only dream in life was to one day sell his home made jams to his friends and acquaintances in his very own neighborhood?

Because I would watch that.
