Jinxing.

BoredGamerBoredGamer Registered User regular
edited July 2008 in Social Entropy++
I'm posting this because I keep trying to jinx people, and they either don't know what I'm talking about, or stubbornly refuse to stop talking until I say their full name.

So, this is the deal, right? If we say the same thing at the same time, I get to say jinx. And that means you can't talk until I say your name. If you do talk, I get to punch your arm. OK? So don't look all hurt and angry when I punch you. You broke a jinx, you deserve it.

And another thing, if I ask you a really easy question, then say the answer at the same time, then shout JINX at you, don't say "well why did you ask me if you know the answer, and why did you just shout jinx?"

Because if you DO say that, you'll be talking whilst jinxed, and by GOD, I will punch you. (In the arm.)






Consider this posting a formal notice, served to the world.

    sorry dude, but there are many variations on jinxing
    for instance my brother and I often followed the rule of double and triple jinxing

    Pretty much.

    You got to agree to these games beforehand with a group of people. Like the one where you make a circle with your thumb and index finger below the waist. You don't just go doing that shit to anybody, because people'll get angry. You only do it to friends who would do it to you too.

    We had a VW lot by my house when I was a kid. I'll never forget the day all the new bugs came out and filled the lot. The backseat of my mom's car turned into a war zone.
