Your response is to complain about 'six lousy beers and boring company'?!?! 'We didn't get free dinner, mixers, dessert, and a stripper to dance for us!' ?!?!
I bet you'd even go on about how your invaluable involvement in the social atm t an ingrate!
Fortunately for the freeloaders, Russ is far more forgiving than I am.
You try to make a point by producing a stupid comparison. You fail. You fail big time. (I don't say you're stupid, only your comparison. your thought might have slipped in one way or ontother. Perhaps you tried a seventh beer before you invented this stupid comparison?)
You say that one beer is comparable with one game? I have 70 games going at this moment. Do you mean that this is comparable with that I have 70 beers going at the same time? ZorroTheFox has 667 games going. Conclusion? Stupid!
You throw a party and you say to your guests: "If you come you get six lousy beers for free, nothing else. Well, I have an old TV-set going in a corner where you can see commersials, that's for free. To ge a welcome drink, listen to music, have a nice chat with my wife, and some other good stuff, you have to pay 30 dollars." How many will come to your party do you think? And how many friends will ever come to your parties in the future? And how many of your ex-friends will invite you at theirs parties? What do you think? A stupid comparison? Yes, of course. Stupid!
Another stupid comparison: I throw a party, and princess of Sweden, princess Madeleine, phone me and asks "May I come too?" She is as pretty and exciting as [insert your favourite supermodel's name here] who, by the way, calls and asks the same thing. I answer "No, you're not welcome, I don't like any freeloaders here." Is this stupid or not? Yes, of course, as stupid as the comparison per se. Stupid!
I'm about to buy a car. A Lamborghini SUV extra all. Thirty years of salary goes down the drain for this purchase. The last question I ask - "Does it have a beerholder for each seat, all six of them?" He says "No, you have to pay extra for these." I decline, and go to his competitor. Stupid of him? Of course. Stupid comparison? Yes, of course. Stupid.
The difference by your stupid comparison and mine is that you seem to think that you are serious by your comparison (one bear equals one game) and I make them up in order to show that stupid comparisons are not relevant.
One beer equals one game? How did you come up with this stupid comparison in the first place? Didn't you really think it over? Did you really think that you could make my posting stupid? As a retorical trick? Well, you failed.
To have some people have sex lousy games together with comersials is not a bad idea. Russ doesn't think so, I don't think so. But what I think doesn't matter. What Russ think does.
(You made a mistake. I don't hold this against you. We all do that kind of stupid things once in a while.)
