Everybody add one or more rules to the drinking* game!

Rule #1: When you see a post discussing Lawrence of Arabia, take a drink for every post that gets into the thread before Rob Tomlin responds. This rule also applies for 2001: A Space Oddyssey and Jack Briggs, "anything related to Joss Whedon" and Jeff Kleist, and Amelie and Steeve Bergeron.

Rule #2: When you see Rain's nostril, take a drink (NOT from the nostril!)

Rule #3: When you visit the "Movies" forum and you see that the "Official Star Wars Saga Discussion Thread" is still on the front page, take two drinks.

Rule #4: When a thread gets locked in After Hours, pour one on the ground for your homies. Posted Image

Rule #5: When you see Ron-P hoisting a cold one, you must chug.

What else you got?

Brad

*Uhhh, please drink responsibly and don't operate a motor vehicle and all that other stuff that must be said so that you can't blame myself or the forum if you do something stupid while inebriated.
We apologise for the unnecessary truncation and lack of formatting control in the signature. Those responsible should be sacked.

Rule #16: Take a drink whenever I make a big scene out of voting against 2001: A Space Oddysey in a tourney.
