Day 788 of 365 Again.

Some people just don’t know how to be gracios winners. There was another presidential debate tonight, and of course we played presidential debate bingo. This time Steph won.

She’s very excited to have beat me in a completely random, no skill game, and suggested we play more of them. I mean sure, I can still kick her ass at Jeopardy or Trivial Pursuit. But Bingo based on debate soundbites, that’s her game.

*sigh* There’ll be no living with her now.

    Doh! I even wrote up my own version of those bingo cards (that website is horrible at avoiding massive duplications – I had 3x"Hillary Clinton"s on one!) but I forgot to print/play them!

    Ah, well – we still have one more. Just make sure you have a properly strategic card for the scheduled debate topics, and you’ll be back on top soon!

    Tough luck, Mav. Go Steph — one more next week!

    They need to update that list of items for Bingo card spaces. "Hanging chad" is old news. And I shuffled it a bunch of times and could not find "special interests" among them. I hear that far more than "lobbyists" now. It’s frickin’ annoying!

    Example: "The special interests in Washington are sucking us dry, and [so-and-so incumbent] is helping them do it, while feasting on their junkets and campaign money."

    Look out Joe Six-pack — they’ll drink all your beer and chain-smoke all your Marlboros!

    We all have our pet special interests — let’s be honest here. Campaign donation limits (McCain-Feingold, etc.) are clearly unconstitutional. Not that Big Money is not a problem or anything…. What we need instead is full, fair, open, DETAILED disclosure rules on campaign finance, with debilitating fines levied on campaigns that hide information, and federal prison time if the malfeasance is sufficiently Machiavellian.

    lol well next time maybe you can design your own cards, strategically predicting what items might be mentioned, and how they might be mentioned together. That could actually be fun!

    This opens up a whole host of possibilities I will kick your ass at…Deal or No Deal, craps, drawing straws, the first round of rocks-paper-scissors, the lottery, war, the list goes on and on…

    @Jack Scoresby: bah… she just got lucky

    @mickeysacks: quiet you!

    @Atraxen: did you play this time?

    @lrayholly: et tu, Mom?

    @SaylaMarz: that wouldn’t be very fun though. despite how I’m acting, I like the randomness of it.

    @MegaBee: like you should talk!

    @beststephi: there is nothing random about Rock-Paper-Scissors! It’s all about psychology.

    @thehalfshow.com: did you try it?
