I walked into a K-mart and freaked out about the release of Land Before Time XII.

And if the rant was about how awesome Diet Sprite is, then I'd say that's a fair approximation.

No, I was upset about how pointless it is to make diet versions of sodas that are basically diet already.

Huh? Sprite has over 100 calories per can. How is that "basically diet"?

JT Stryker said he isn't sure if he's done that, but he has stepped on Mellencamp, Metallica and Def Leppard's tech guy's index finger, and he can ask if it's possible his dad ever worked for REO Speedwagon.

Well for that one I don't think it was violating the spirit of the game. If I had wanted to get VERY specific I would have said "in Midland Michigan, at this specific hotel, on this specific date, with this specific elephant and with these specific people."

Generally one would figure if you're going to ride an elephant it's at like, I don't know, probably in Africa or India, or if not, then at a zoo or circus or fair or something.

A hotel parking lot strikes me as more unique, and therefore fair game.

Actually, that's fairly common for anyone who has had a run-in with a Van de Graaf generator. I think most, if not all, of my physics class has had that happen to them (including myself).
Me too.

Betcha never had a chunk of your finger removed by a very large parrot.

Yes, it is cheating to be too specific.

No "Betcha never watched Scrubs on my living room couch last night," kinda crap.

Although I did do that.

Betcha never touched Gwen Stefani's shoe while she was performing.

Betcha you were never MTV's website picture for 2 months.

I'm curious, but I will not ask.

That is disgusting.

You're right. I have never done that.

With the Van De Graff generator I believe it is not actually conducting through your body... At least it shouldn't be, according to what I have heard. I always thought it was just aligning your magnetic field with its own.

The way I've played this game its called "I've never". You say something that you've never done and then everyone who has done it has to put in a penny. (There was a drinking version of this on Lost). In that version, the least experienced person wins. Your version where you have to come up with stuff no one else has done has a very different bias where the most experienced person wins. I also think its lots easier to come up with stuff that no one else has done.

Betcha never been invited to speak at the AVS meeting?

Betcha never slept in a graveyard in Austria?

Betcha never ridden under the Flamme Rouge in the Tour de France.

Betcha never road a bicycle all night to catch a ferry.

I'd say I've done about half these things.

Betcha never stabbed yourself in the neck with a saxaphone during rehersal.

Betcha never been knocked down, jumped on, spat at, hit over the head, stood on, and dogpiled upon on stage for an audience of about 400 then had your picture in the paper the next day! (I love my job)

I think that at the very least, the things you say have to be general enough that someone could have theoretically done them.

Betcha never threw something at an actor during a performance of one of Shakespeare's plays at the Globe theater.

Betcha never watched Bush and Kerry debate in person.

Betcha never gave birth to a kid who was born with the cord wrapped around her neck, then her ankle, then her neck again. (That was a new one even for my doctor! She also wiggled out of TWO scalp electrode monitors, which was a new one for the entire staff of the hospital, apparently.)

Betcha never watched Yellowstone's Steamboat Geyser have its biggest eruption in over a century.

Betcha never had an ulcer in your throat. (some people may have had that one)

Betcha never eaten a huhu beetle alive, crunch crunch, for ten bucks*.

Fyfe: did you use voices like we do when reading books for kids?
Yes. I mean, I had to. There were some whiny shrill people and some gruff-voiced people. It was all very awkward; I have been reading books onto tape for my aunt since I was fourteen or so, but the most risque they had ever been up to that point was Ron and Lavender making out all over the Gryffindor common room. When my parents brought home Julie Garwood's timeless masterpiece The Bride and told me my grandmother really wanted to have it on tape but couldn't get it anywhere because it was so trashy no one had ever recorded an audio version, my brain exploded with horror. You know how many sex scenes in that book? FIVE. FIVE.

*brain is scarred with horror forever*
