View Full Version : Introducing: GENERAL posting

We all know this: There's a big discussion going on. You don't have a point of view. Or you don't want to post your point of view. Or you are just challenged to post any point of view.

Or: Everyone agrees. Discussion stopped, and you wish an idiot would come by to post something really stupid.
----
Solution: GENERAL (General Alignment)
----
Idea: We form 4 random groups. Let's call them

(A)rseholes
(B)astards
(C)retins
(D)orks

When someone starts a thread he posts the GENERAL positions as footnote.
---
Example:
Abortion

(blah blah)

GENERAL
PRO: A,D
CON: B,C

This means: If the thread goes lame, the people assigned to A and D (Arseholes and Dorks) post some weird PRO shit and the B and C (Bastards and Cretins) some weird CON shit.

----
What group am I assigned too?

Your first name starts with A - L : +1 point
Your first name starts with M - Z: +2 points
Your last name starts with A - L: +10 points
Your last name starts with M - Z: +20 points

real life names, no middle names etc. Dutchman ans other weirdos: ignore "van" and stuff like that.

Add your points

11 points = Arsehole
12 points = Bastard
21 points = Cretin
22 poins = Dork
----
Example:
Jan Henk van den Dynnenbeer
J and D are relevant
J = +1 (it's in A - L)
D = +10 (it's in A - L too)

sum = +11 , that means group A (Arseholes)

This means: If Jan Henk van den Dynnenbeer wants to make a GENERAL post n an abortion thread, he has to post PRO abortion, no matter what his REAL opinion s.

He may mak his post as a GENERAL post (tag line "using GENERAL").
----

Note that you can't pick your GENERAL!

----

The 4 different groups allow us to start threads with complex GENERAL settings, like

A clueless PRO
D arrogant PRO
C clueless CON
B arrogant CON

I think it's a brilliant concept.

It saves time, because you don't have to think about an opinion.

You can always say: Well, I was speaking in GENERAL, that's not my real me .

You learn how to fight for a generic cause - good for consultants!

And you learn how it feels to be a complete moron (most of us already know)

It sounds too much like work to understand the concept.

Vincent

I could make a movie using vegetables to explain it to Funko

Funko
18-05-2005, 16:46:20
Well if it means we have to talk about topics like abortion it's a bit of a nightmare anyway. :(

Martini
18-05-2005, 16:46:22
Yay! I'm a bastard :D But I'm female.....oh well, nevermind :)

Funko
18-05-2005, 16:46:55
I'm a bastard too.

You can be a female bastard, no reason why not.

Martini

True, in the illegitimacy sense, but I have never heard a female called one before. It'd be like calling me a wanker. Oh, wait....

Drekkus
18-05-2005, 18:08:37
So I should be a clueless pro arsehole.

What were we argueing about again? Because I agree!

This is the most stupid concept I have ever heard of, so it should do well on CG.

The fly in the ointment being, you're not going to get random grouping in the first place.

Speaking in GENERAL, I think this thread suck, and the ideas within it MAKE NO SESNE, and are rubbish, becuse Vincent is a cretin.

Me too.

Vincent
18-05-2005, 21:46:36
So you like it?

Chris
18-05-2005, 21:54:36
No.

This is a stupid idea. I'km against it becuase the background colors are wrong :mad:

Drekkus
18-05-2005, 23:15:32
I think it's a great concept. Some people just don't get the brilliance of it, and should be laughed and pointed at for being so clueless.

Immortal Wombat

More than half the population has names beginning in the first half of the alphabet, which would swing us towards A and C. I can't find surname data sorted by letter. Maybe we're just naturally cretins.

19-05-2005, 19:15:20

Chris
19-05-2005, 22:03:17
I refuse to understand the concept.

Vincent
20-05-2005, 06:23:53
Even Drekkus did.

MoSe
20-05-2005, 08:08:45
did what? refuse or understand?

Greg W
20-05-2005, 08:11:23
Knowing Drekkus, probably both. :lol: :confused: :clueless: :nervous:
