So apparently not even Trekkies have exalted themselves above silly drinking games. Now despite my lack of ever having drunken alcohol for any reason, nor do I plan to. I can still appreciate the humor built into this game. I suggest for those of you Baha'is, Muslims, former alcholics, and friends that just think beer smells like rubber bands + urine (like I do - sorry drinkers, it's true)...maybe choose to play this game with an energy drink or play it in a group for points, whomever calls it first and racks up the most points gets something special from the group (say a group hug...or thier dinners covered by the group, whatever).

SPECIAL THANKS to Mackenzie (mysterious commenter) for sharing the game with me! Keep reading the blog Mackenzie! I'm so glad you actually commented directly on the blog...most people email me (PUNKS!). Keep it public friends! It's all love here!

Hey Folks,
It has long been said that college students will take any and every
opportunity to drink, regardless of the circumstances. It's true... we will.
And we also manage to make it fun... So the next time you're watching Star
Trek, pull this out and drink per each successfully met condition. Guaranteed
to get you LOADED. Have a good week.

  1. I would be really drunk or have a heck of a sugar rush after this

  2. Wow! I'm a post! If you like absurd Trek-related internet creations, I have a few more.

    This one made me and my friends literally weep with laughter:

  3. @Precise - yeah, totally! I'd be tanked in about 10min because I'm certain I'm a SUPER light weight having never drunken b4 and being as pint-sized as I am!

    @Mckenzie - the drinking game was too funny not to share! I also was so delighted to have a mystery commenter! If you're in Chicagoland, you should totally come say hello at one of the events I produce! I'd be delighted!
