    Xian, I think you should add "Constant Movie Quoter" to the list. Hell as much movies as a lot of us watch, somebody HAS to be able to memorize a **** load of quotes and just throw them out constantly during the date.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Okay here's my real idea:
    Incompetent magician, a la GOB from Arrested Development.

    If you can work in shooting pennies, a dead Dove in your pants, a racist black puppet, and a boombox playing "The Final Countdown," I'll buy you beer for a year.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John

    I believe I can handle that.

    I don't like a lot of these caricatures, primarily because I think you've got to have a persona that you can fashion a whole date around, and, two, it's got to be something that will make the girl uncomfortable but not willing to end it immediately. Really, Pirate guy or Pink Panther Guy probably wouldn't be something that would work. A girl's gonna see through it real quick and, depending on the girl, perhaps leave very quickly.

    Ones I like:

    OCD Guy
    Know it all guy
    Mouth Breather
    Paranoid Guy
    Itenerary Guy (has everything planned out, begins to lose it when things don't go according to plan)
    Overzealous Guy

    I think all of those would be easy enough to maintain for an entire date, while also -- of course -- maintaining the date. I think it'd be a mistake to hollywoodize our perception of how something like corny joke guy or curse guy would play out. In either case, it's possible that the girl might not care that much or, alternatively, it might be hard for the field/op to maintain the character.

    As far as judging goes, I really think length of the date and overall hilarity should outweigh what character a person picks.

    Just so we're clear, I'm 100% down to do this.
    Don't hate the player. Hate the game.

    Does this count as a contractual agreement? Do you even realize how much beer I drink?

    It's completely worth it if you can say, "If you didn’t have adult onset diabetes, I wouldn’t mind giving you a little sugar."

    Xian, I URGE you to read "The Diceman," by Luke Rhinehart. Very similar concept.

    My vote goes to Fundamentalist Ja-Ho-Vah's (sp) Witness.

    I do agree with most of what you've said, but I do think that some of the personas could be adapted by the right "actor." I don't think pirate guy would do too well, but curse guy could be very, very funny if done right. Especially if you drop the "c" nuke a lot.

    This is going to be entirely amusing. I'm going to look into a camera purchase.

    I agree that a lot of it's going to be in the artistry of pulling something off, I just happen to think that curse guy or a couple of others would be very likely to fail in actual use. That's just my personal opinion, I suppose.

    Who else is actually in for this ****? Nash, I know you have a "girlfriend" and you're a "nice" person, but

    (a) She'll understand or
    (b) She never needs to know and
    (c) Suck it up

    Yeah, but internet dating is weird. And leaves a paper trail.

    1. Pirate Guy
    2. Mouth Breather
    3. Paranoid Pete
    4. Emotional Wreck
    5. Disagree with everything guy (Know-It-All)
    6. Bathroom every 5 minutes guy
    7. Afraid of human contact guy
    8. Forgetful Guy
    9. OCD Guy
    10. Curse Guy
    11. Overzealous Guy
    12. Sexual Innuendo Guy
    13. Corny joke guy
    14. Really annoying laugh guy
    15. Religious or Political Fanatic Guy
    16. Nonstop movie quoter
    17. Incompetent Magician
    18. Sleazy guy (hitting on other girls)
    I've already mastered doing 2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 simultaneously--though a lifetime of practice.

    What would I win?

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    I'm shockingly un-sleazy when it comes to women. And I never hit on girls. I demand to be stricken from your list, Chris.


    And, oh, I can't participate. If I got any kind of date I would be so shocked that all of my well-rehearsed lines would shatter.

    Okay, I've got it!

    You have to go as another WBB member. Think how awesome it would be to go in character as Budiak! You could talk about photography, angst, deliveries, and photography of angst.

    Or Rock! You could talk in a funny Norwegian accent and say things like "I will throw you in the hundestillegen now!"

    Paul Stagg! "Property rights are inherent in the social context of ordering this 32oz steak."

    MM! "Oh, my girly shoulder hurts so much that I made out with six women last night and then drank away the shame."
