I have to say UnrealLegend, that I haven't heard those stereotypes before! Ha ha. wink
The stereotypes of Aussies (that I've only just started hearing in the last few years) are that you are all really relaxed about everything, that you have a lot of barbecues and you drink and surf a lot and that older Aussies are sporty and casually racist. :S
(I guess they don't know who or what to kick.)
I bet you guys drink about the same amount as we do in England. How much of the above was even remotely accurate? :S

Ha ha. Only as I've gotten older and heard them from TV and movies. I bet there are loads but I only know two: apparently they all have roman noses and they're academic and therefore good at making money.
There don't seem to be many Jewish people in the English countryside towns. I guess they all live in the cities. As far as I know, I've never met a Jew! O.O I guess that's pretty weird to an American?
There just isn't much diversity in the West Midlands of England. Foreign people choose to live in cities.

Yeh we do, but for good reasons: It's always cold, even when it's warm. And on the rare occassion that it's hot, it's too hot!
The sky is always grey and because we are meticulously half-arsed, our public transport and technology sucks so we're always frustrated because our lives are hindered by late buses and poorly programmed self-service tills in the supermarkets.
In other words:
England: >frown Nothing works properly!
The rest of the world: Well then why not improve it?
England: Pffft. Can't be bothered.

Ha ha ooh right. Sorry, I'm kinda tired (my sleeping pattern is terrible) so I must have read it wrong. It's currently 5:30am over here, for some reason PEEL has added an extra hour to my time? :/
What time is it where you live? smile

Yeh it is true that everyone complains. But no country's people do it quite so prolifically as the English! Ha ha. smile

Aussies have the best stereotypes. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going ride my kangaroo down to the pub and hunt a few dingos. Or something.

What's this thread about...Futurama drinking games...? I am pretty sure that thread already exists (if I find it, I'll merge).

edit: found one. The initial post of this thread from 2003 is pretty interesting so I merged that thread with this one.

Here are some more ideas:

Drink when...
Leela becomes opinionated.
Bender's says one of his top ten.
Fry says something stupid.
Professor acts senile.

...etc

Well I also could've been more specific. I'm the same though with the messed up sleeping schedule, having worked nights most of my adult life (and currently). To answer your question, I'm four hours behind you.

Hey I got merged, I thought it's frowned upon to post on threads that no one has posted on for years(?) so I made my own one 'When you see the robot, drink!' thread.
I guess it's OK to bump extinct threads then?
Hey guys, I think we should move this stereotype thing to the Culture Questions thread in Offtopic. I'd give ya a link but y'know, my phone, can't copy and paste, blah, blah, blah.
Drinking games should be kept simple, the fewer rules the better.
No one can remember 10 or more rules whilst drinking.

I don't think there's any problem with it, as long as you are making a meaningful and contributing post.

If you have to keep a cheat sheet to follow along while drinking, you're doing it wrong! tongue

What's a cheat sheet?

A piece of paper with written notes intended to aid one's memory, typically one used surreptitiously in an examination.

Double posting. tongue

Yeh sorry about that. frown It's my shite cell-phone-telephone. [Eye roll.]
But if you're playing a drinking game which involves watching something, you don't want to have to keep pausing it to read something. Do ya? :/
Just generally I think games with simpler/ fewer rules are more fun because they're more fast paced.
Know what I mean? smile

Don't worry, it takes time to get used to how to properly use PEEL. There already happens to be an eye roll smiley: roll eyes There's also already a slangy face: hmpf. Just try to catch your mistakes more often so you get better at PEELing. wink

Thanks SGB.
My phone takes so long to load and post a comment that I've resorted to always using the 'quick reply' option at the bottom, so there's no smileys to choose. :/
Ha ha, I just noticed what I did there. /\
Also my cell-phone-telephone limits my online text to 512 characters a go. I presume it's just to annoy me as there's no other tangible reason.
Meaning that using the smileys on here take up a lot of space if I'm leaving anything but a short post. frown

...three of your last four posts were concentrated on the plights of your phone.

I understand your frustrations but you must adjust...making posts to try and explain your inabilities to do certain things does not contribute to the integrity of the original intention of this thread. And we all want to respect a good drinking game thread! tongue

I don't think it is too much to ask that we stay on topic (everyone) else we might find some of our fancy narrations gone MIA eek Now let's get back on topic.

I have yet to accomplish an actual Futurama drinking game yet, but I have gotten drunk watching Futurama, does that count? evil laugh

Next time I see leiapadme I think we should try some of those rules in the first post. You don't have to do them all Lucy, they're just suggestions. Just pick a couple or whatever you can do without getting totally blasted heh...

Ooh, so they were. :/ I didn't even notice! :O
Next time someone says something I should do that my phone prevents me from doing, I shall (at the risk of being rude) just ignore it. It's not worth explaining and if it's really annoying someone, then I guess they can personally message me about whatever it is that I'm doing or not doing.
I wouldn't say that getting drunk whilst watching it counts. So, have fun with the game! smile Let me know the results. (Probably a hangover from Hell.)
What's MIA by the way?

Heh, is that cultural thing too (the mia thing)?

Yeah, when people irritate you here, best to not draw attention to it, else you be a Danny...(I kid, I kid, he knows I <3 him...)

I've played like actual card drinking games before, the problem is that I don't want to take massive shots of tequila. I am the only one who doesn't pass out or puke though big grin

Here's an odd one - drink every time a character asks a question. It seems like that is always happening quite a bit...

I didn't mean it annoyed me, I meant if I annoy another person.

Anyway, yeh I think MIA isn't a phrase on this side of the ocean. Is it a military term?

I've played a card drinking game before, that was fun. I hardly remember any of the rules to it now though as it was almost two years ago.
There was a lot of pointing involved. If you missed your chance to point at who or what you were supposed to then you had to drink.

The question drinking game sounds cool, I may have to try that sometime. smile

Homer: Well beer, we've had some great times.
       [wistfully]
       When I was seventeen,
       I drank some very good beer,
       I drank some very good beer I purchased with a fake ID,
       My name was Brian McGee,
       I stayed up listening to Queen,
       When I was seventeen.

No, I believe you can't quit until you admit it. You can still be one without admitting it. Or you could admit it and still not quit, like me with cigarettes.

Ha ha, I was (mostly) joking. I drink a lot but I don't NEED to drink. Sometimes I really don't feel like it and sometimes I do, I don't drink everyday, maybe two or three nights a week if I'm having a bad time, otherwise it's once a week or not at all. Some of it is social drinking too.
So I drink often but each time I do, it isn't loads. Maybe three pints of cider or three glasses of wine or whatever. Point is, if I am an alcoholic, I'm a very moderate and fussy one! Ha ha. smile

If you can get through Love and Rocket without pausing it other than for going to the loo or getting another drink (in other words, no breaks) then you're a God! Ha ha.
Also, I did the same Beanoz4, until I reread it. smile

I missed this post.

The stereotypes you listed are actually pretty accurate, other than maybe surfing. But to be fair, I live in Adelaide, which isn't really know for surfing anyway.

And yes, some Aussies can be very racist. Not me though. I'm too perfect.
