I propose a game for you all!
My father, Straight Dope user cmyk had played this little game with some of you older board members a few years ago. (I think i’m looking in the right place. 2007 I think he did it. If not, well, it was around that time frame for sure. By the way, the original thread by him is here.)
There are a few rules and changes i’m making, however.
It is the same as my father said, I hereby swear to you I will not use Google, or /any/ external sources when answering your questions. This means books, people, anything. I will use nothing but my own cranium.
Ask me whatever question you wish. However, I am not a genius by any means. Keep in mind i’m only 15. Though, I think I may be able to answer a couple at least.
Once you figure out my strong points, (they are indeed there, though a bit obscure), you can ask me harder questions in the same category… Or whatever you would call that. A field of interest? Whatever, you get it.
Remember, the trick is NOT to stump me. Instead of using that… …interesting… point system my father was using, for every correct answer to one of your questions, give yourself one point. For every one I get wrong, subtract one. You don’t need to rate or do any of those crazy shenanigans.
Winner gets pie. (I hope you are happy about my efforts to give this prize to you… I have to go all the way out to the swamps and wrangle it myself.)
