New Quest Available!

Postby JustAName » 05 Jan 2015, 09:35

Image

Inspired by the silly quests I was putting in the Depression Thread, a new, more formalized version!

-I will post a new quest (hopefully) every week, which will run the course of the week and expire after seven days.

-In addition to the gaining XP for each completed quest, a player will be able to "reactivate" an old quest for themselves every time they gain 1000 XP (about one month's worth). If they have completed every quest to date, they may instead choose to receive a prize from me.

-Every player who has completed every quest at the end of 52 weeks will get a special prize from me!

-Look forward to more, related things soon!

Quest #1

Learn a new joke! Document your telling it to someone for the first time, either with video, or with a series of pictures including at least the listener's reactions to the setup, punchline, and after the punchline.

Quest starts at 10 AM Pacific Time on Monday, Jan 5, 2015, and ends at 9:59 Pacific Time on Monday, Jan 12, 2015.

Good luck!

I didn't take photos, I'm afraid, but I did come up with and tell a new joke at work.

"What did one embedded programmer say to the other at the start of a new project?"

"Let's C what we can C."

Many groans ensued. It was a good time.
Often outnumbered, never outpunned.

Note: in Ireland 'ye' is used as the plural of 'you'. It rather neatly avoids confusion online.

I completed the quest, much to my boyfriend's chagrin.

(I apologize for filming vertically, and there's nothing I can do for the weird sound delay from my phone. I don't even know how the sound is that far ahead, but you get the idea.)

Also, thank tumblr for the new joke.

Valkyrie: I will accept it if you tell us what the joke was.

IX: You are, as ever, an enormous dork. Accepted.

Betsy: If I were grading, you would get full marks!

I said:

Me-"What type of bed are you most likely to find worms in?"
Them-"What? I don't know...a flower bed?"
Me-"No. Your bed!"

There wasn't exactly a full punch involved, that was exaggerated, but hitting was involved.

I of course did not put any worms in any beds FYI.

I told this one at my factory (so no video was allowed), but the joke was:

"A bartender walks into a bar and asks for a double entendre, the bartender gives it to her."

There were crickets upon it's completion. Screw them, it's a great joke.

I stole MrPayneTraynes because I thought it was awesome.

Me: "A woman walks into a bar and asks for a double entendre, so the bartender gives it to her."

Lady Hosk: "Im waiting for the joke"

I always ended that joke with "so he gave her one". Not sure which has more impact.

I have used both endings and find that the "So he gave her one" ending is funnier.

I have done one, as well! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SXeZJq-HMU

KidSpanner, who was my victim, is allowed to upload his late because I was there when he recorded it, and I also saw his phone all busted up the very next day, so I know he's got extenuating circumstances.

The rest of you, though! Get your videos in by 9:59 AM Pacific time tomorrow, Monday the 12th!

No video, I'm afraid. Reason being, it took 45 minutes in the telling

Neither of my victims were particularly amused

I got up really early this morning, printed out a bunch of these, and stealthily left them in my friend's kitchen, with some tape and a note that said "thanks in advance".

I told my students a joke this week... but being as it was during class, no phones were allowed to record such things...

"What do you call a bear with no teeth?"

"A gummy bear..."

QUEST #1 IS NOW CLOSED

I will not accept late submissions, but remember, if you are able to get 1000 XP, you can reactivate an uncompleted quest for yourself, so don't despair. You may still have a chance!

Image

Quest #2

Wonder Woman pose! Get a picture of yourself in the Wonder Woman pose (feet shoulder width apart, fists on hips, great posture) every day this week. For maximum effect for your own confidence, I recommend at least ten seconds, and I recommend you do it in the morning to get that start-of-the-day confidence kick. The only requirements are one picture a day for seven days (that means you have the option of today or next Monday for the seventh pic).

I've been pretty lenient so far with the evidence, but I'm going to require pictures for this one. If you don't feel comfortable sharing them with everyone, you can send them directly to me.

Quest starts at 10 AM Pacific Time on Monday, Jan 12, 2015, and ends at 9:59 AM Pacific Time on Monday, Jan 19, 2015.

Good Luck!

For purposes of picture taking (I live alone), is it cool if I only have one fist on hip?
