Interesting Facts About Board Games You Didn’t Know

Interesting Facts About Board Games You Didn't KnowWe had 6 kids in my house when I was growing up, so money was not plentiful. Because we were on a budget, we were not able to go to the movies or other outside activities very often. Instead, we would spend nights inside with a bowl of popcorn, some soda and our favorite board games. We were fiercely competitive, especially between my 3 older brothers. Things could get pretty heated, especially when we played Monopoly! While the kids and I were stuck inside because of the harsh winter weather, we were playing a game of Clue and I wondered how the game got its name. I looked it up and found some great information. Here is just a snippet of cool factoids and history I gathered!

Fun Fact: Clue was originally named Murder! and was created to pass the time during the war when troops were stuck in underground bunkers during long air raid drills.

You're bored with the bar scene because...

by FudgieMcNiqua

It IS boring. Gay guys who go out drinking every weekend - be it alone or with friends - tend to be either messy alcoholics or tedious shrieking queens, with substantial overlap between the two!
It's also a great waste of time and money. Think how many interesting books you could read, or how much money you could save up for a trip to someplace interesting you've always wanted to go, with all of the time and money you're wasting away on overpriced drink at bars.
Going out with friends to a bar, or going bar-hopping with them, every once in a great while, can be fun. But not every weekend. Not even every month! Two or three times a year at most!
Thankfully, I have the constitution of an old man so I can hardly stay up past 11pm most nights, so I usually don't go...

What its like having no cable for 2 years

by wat2dowat2do

We have not had cable connected for two years. We can afford it, but I just think it isn't worth it and I think it teaches people to dumb down.
My neighbor went on and on how crazy i would be cause I wouldn't be able to talk with other people about what Star said on the View. I sat there and thought... you're right, I'd rather talk to people about more interesting things with more interesting people.
We get home mail delivered DVD service (there's blockbuster and Netflix that I know of) and they mail 3 or 5 DVDs of my choice to the house each week. We're talking $18-30 per month. I think its much better value.
I can watch what I want, when I want. I don't have to sit around waiting half hour for it to start. No commercials. no one hundred stations of TV evangilists,...
