I never thought I would ever want to play a drinking game. Not even the State of the Union address enticed me. Not even the point at which George Bush winked at the people who had lost a son in Iraq.
This afternoon, I overheard a business discussion and finally understood why people play these games. If I had a single drop of a low-alcoholic beer every time I heard buzzwords like, "saturate," "Microsoft .Net," "integrate", and "visual," I would have been drunk in less than five minutes.
People play these games because experience which confirms the weird steretypes is hilarious. But these things can also be depressing. During events like this, people feel like they need alcohol to handle the hangover of reality.
