I had a really rare day at the office today, so I came home and cracked a Sam Adams. I drink only occaisionally, and practically never after work. The reason is I like to come home and hit the workbench and I don't think a few drinks would improve my skills any.

So I'm drinking this delicious beer and I had an idea:

The "Under the Influence" GB!

Proposed Rules:

GB lasts for one month

Cutting parts from the sprues and any other preparatory tasks that may be dangerous while Under the Influence should be done in advance, while sober.

1. You must post a picture of what you're Under the Influence of: beer, whiskey, espresso, Nyquil, cold medicine, Drano, whatever.

(don't post anything you don't want everyone to see)

Declare what you intend to be Under the Influence of in advance for bonus points!

2. Build your project while Under the Influence.

3. Any model is eligilble so long as you whiff it!

4. Winner(s) determined by votes cast by forum members.

5. There is no Rule #5.

6. Have fun!

Suggestions?

:cheers:

Sounds like a real trip.  But I wonder whose going to pay for all those hospital and ER visits to sew up the cuts from X-acto knives?

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

Hehehe I should've known. Now to have you be the first one to respond, well that's impressive!

P.S. Unfortunately, you're on your own for any associated medical costs, Ed. We could add a rule that cutting and preparing parts in advance for safety's sake is allowed and a good idea.

Cool ! Looks like every model I've built since 1986 or so would be eligible ! Mind you, to protect the guilty, I'm not snapping any pics of the baggie......

So, like, even the painting phase needs to be done while unsober?

That's the idea! Although being "Under the Influence" spans a fairly wide range from just having a drink to being unable to get up off the floor.

I'd probably take about a month to build the simplist of kits so does that mean I have to stay p!ssed for that length of time???  I can see the rest of my life going down the pan, although it could be fun! :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Good point - we all are often under already!  :blink:  :lol:
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

Well then original idea was that you can be Under the Influence of anything. I like the idea of leaving that part undefined.

While I can understand the temptation to stay sauced for the entire month this proposed GB would run, you actually only need be Under the Influence while working on your entry.

What do you think about awarding bonus points for posts made while Under the Influence to your project's build thread?

I think I need a drink now.

Yeah uh, seeing how I saw into my palms often enough while sober.... I'd participate with nothing sharper than some old nailclippers to get the sprues off. :blink:
