The State of the Union drinking game  
This isn't mine, it was a collaborative IRC effort, but it's great:

The Bush State of the Union drinking game:

if he mentions Mars, the Moon, or space, take a drink
if he says W.M.D., take a drink
if he says anything that makes sense, finish your drink
If he mentions 9/11 in the context of something having nothing to do with 9/11, take a drink.
if he coins a new word midspeech, open and finish a new drink
if he mentions terror, take a drink
if he mentions armed forces, take a drink
if he talks about how great things are going in Iraq and/or Afghanistan, take a drin
if he mentions god, take a drink
if he mentions cutting taxes, take a drink
if he says the economy is improving, take a drink
if he talks about the Middle East, take a drink
if he mentions the troops, take a drink
if he mentions the children, take a drink
if he mentions drugs take a drink
if he mentions marriage take a drink
if he mentions faith or religion, take a drink


It is strongly recomended that you use water, or at least water your drinks, otherwise you'll probably pass out before he finishes, and miss out on the fun =P

And as long as we're talking about him, here's a cool link on some of the negative effects his tax cuts are having

And an interesting factoid, the government was aiming to create 250,000 jobs last month. 1000 were actually created. So so far any improvement in the economy _isn't_ for the working class.

And i'd be happy to hear any more suggestions for edditing or additions to the list

the state of the union was really scary and if you followed your game you are most certainly dead of alchohol poisoning now.

The thing that scared me most was how much he mentioned faith based organizations and his abstinence campaign that will help combat sexually transmitted diseases (even though research shows that abstinence campaigns don't stop teen sex - they just make it less safe). All this dogma - I am frightened.

Yeah, there were about four of us on IRC who were watching the speach, and a couple more listening to our sarcastic report. We started out with the usual Bush jokes and things we expected him to say, and anytime he said something that was particularly stupid or propagandistic (or both) that we hadn't thought of already we would add it to the list.

Yeah, no matter what you would like the world to be like, you need to have a basis in reality when making important decisions. Maybe they're right maybe abstinance before marriage is a good thing (although i certainly disagree, my teen abstinance was enforced by others, not voluntary, but maybe i'm just an immoral godless heathen or something) but even so they're never going to get most people to follow through on that idea.

If they want to encourage abstinance while they _also_ teach other safe sex techniques, that's great. And sure, on the surface it may seem to encourage people to have sex if you hand them condoms, but if you can't expect teens to be rational enough to understand and go along with "don't do it, but if you do, at _least_ use this," then how can you expect them to understand and go along with just "don't do it."?

Perhaps they should put out other similar warnings as well, "this first aid kit was not provided so as to encourage injuries" and "this airbag was not provided so as to encourage car accidents."

yeah - but sex always seems to be a big trigger - and it is always hetero sex that is the big guard. At camps and other teen functions the genders are separated so strictly as if just being in the presence of someone of the other gender after midnight means that instant debauchery and baby making.

But 2 girls can be around each other all the time, sleep in each others beds, etc. The funny thing is that on the last day of a camp I was a counselor at I caught 2 girls in the middle of an amorous interlude - they were roommates. I didn't come down on them I basically just said to get going, the bus home was leaving, etc. Our institutions just aren't set up to police same gender sex in the same insane way that they try to prevent hetero sex.
