D&D = Dungeons & Dragons, an activity that tends to piss off religious fundies rather strongly, especially Christian ones, and so is a very fine way for irreligious sceptics to spend their free time.

Ah, I see. I have heard of it (I'm not THAT out of touch with pop culture) but have never played it, nor have I more than a most rudimentary idea of how it works. Thus, bachelor or not, I'd rather not flirt with Gerlinde, but perhaps we'll finally meet thirty years from now at a Bingo game. :-)

I see your awkard geeks and raise you Vin Diesel.

- I still don't like D&D but I'm now forever linked to it. Wink

I only met my S/O because I crashed my bike.  Nothing more intimate than riding pillion with a strange guy whose name you dont even know (but hey, I got home). The V-Twin did enhance the attraction though.  Wink

There's Skeptics in the Pub on this forum if you're interested.

I am currently the proud owner of a 50% share in not one, but two eating establishments. Maybe we could line something up. (Gauteng)

Anyone who had played any kind of "quest/adventure/fps computer game has played a version of D & D. I just thoroughly enjoyed getting together with mates and letting our imaginations run riot.

There is Munchkin which is more approachable for non gamers, especially Munchkin Fu : kill the monster, steal the treasure, karate chop your buddies in the back.

Yeah, yeah, you had a hand in it, the Fireblade is a beautiful bike, but damn, that pillion seat is uncomfortable... Wink

That's what I had in mind: by that time, I'd have to get a lady very thoroughly drunk before I'll get anywhere with her. :-)

I recently found out from a friend that all the folks who play lawn bowls usually get very tiddled beforehand. Which makes sense as I don't see any other way you can play with a odly weighted ball that never goes in the direction you want it to go (G&T anyone?).

yep, Mutton dressed as lamb and Faeries doth fly (off her bike that is).  We used to ride together in the good old bad days when I was still a single biker chick. I got picked up by a Tjop instead and am now a happily married ex-biker-chick (although the bike is still in the garage and I occassionally go park my bum on the seat with a nostalgic wistfullness).  Sigh...  Undecided

Most people wouldn't be seen dead playing bowls, so I would guess the alcohol also helps to lower inhibitions. :-)

It makes perfect sense to allow participants in such high risk and extreme sports to celebrate/nurse their impending victory/defeat before the start of the game. I mean, what if something happens in play that leaves you unable to lift a tumbler for a month?

Most people wouldn't be seen dead playing bowls
I bought a good-as-new set of carpet bowls - the mini version of the lawn variety - from Cash Crusaders long ago. These are small enough to quickly kick under the furniture if a risk of being spotted arise.

Guys get real: bowls has the highest fatality rate behind show jumping...it's a high risk sport:  Grin Not that I play it...prefer water polo @ 67.

I see Bowls is all stereotyped and taboo around here. Must be an age thing. In my twenties a whole whack of us used to go lawn bowling. It's a fun group activity, it's not too taxing, you get some sun, talk shit and get wasted.

What's not to like? (besides the obvious "In my day, only old folks played bowls uphill both ways in the snow" thing).
