Re: Log

I took the above to indicate that I was being banned. Apparently this is either not the case, or is taking some time to actually occur. Either way I'm not interested in continuing my involvement here...

Re: Drinking Games

Yeah, I left a few rules out. I just recently got it from a housemate via his frat. I really always assumed that it was created by some dudes who had two cups and no balls and couldn't play beer...

Re: Drinking Games

Worst game for inebriation is 7/11. Go around the table rolling two dice; if they add up to 7, 11, or are doubles, you pick someone at the table to drink from a communal cup. As soon as they touch...

Re: What's my body fat %?
