The Slashdot Comments Drinking Game

The Slashdot Comments Drinking Game is easy and fun. Prepare a bottle of your favorite drink and a small glass, open an item from the Slashdot main news and scroll down to the comments. Whenever you see one of the items below, take a drink. Keep in mind to only read the visible comments (those rated +3 or more), or else you will die.

Examples from here.
  • A comment inquiring on how this news item is news since it's old/a no-brainer/obvious to anyone
    • This is done in the tone you used with your mother when you were 15 ("In China, even *Americans* must obey Chinese law! Gee, who would have thought?")
  • A tired Simpsons/Futurama/Yakov Smirnoff meme (keep in mind someone rated it +3 even though it was used twenty hundred times before)
  • Comments inexplicably defending the big innocent corporation/country from the mean little bloggers / The 'don't make waves' argument ("You may not like them, for whatever reason. You may think they are inhuman and evil, but they are the law of the land.")
  • Ad-thumbsitum argument: "If you don't like it, then leave/don't use it/don't do it."
  • In general, any complaint that you should not complain
As a bonus, the Youtube Comments Drinking Game. Take a drink whenever you see:
  • Comments consisting of "Doesn't this person have anything better to do with their time" and variations thereof.
Have fun. Don't drink and drive.
