Stephen Colbert and Stephen Greenblatt consider the Shakespearean elements in our presidential election.

Me, to [livejournal.com profile] muchabstracted: See, I know more about Fraggle reproduction than you do.*

Because I am bored, and because I do not feel like focusing on research, or on the other things I promised people I'd write (sorry, [livejournal.com profile] genarti, I don't know where my muse went!), I'd like to start a round (or several rounds) of the God-Sex Game, taught me by the brilliant [livejournal.com profile] muchabstracted.

The Rules:

1. This is a two-player game. One player (call xim "G") plays "god", and the other player ("S") plays "sex".
2. The object of the game is to be able to say the word "god", for G, or the word "sex", for S.
2. Start with a neutral word -- for instance, "comb".
3. One player says a word associated with "comb" -- for instance, "hair". The next player says a word associated with "hair." Repeat until G says "god", S says "sex", or the players get bored.
4. Words may not be repeated.
5. Don't hesitate before responding -- try to respond within thirty seconds of the time you see the response. (Thinking too hard gets boring.)

Here's a sample (but very short) game:

Starting word: order
G: commandment
S: adultery
G: Zeus
S: Aphrodite... oops, I didn't mean that...
G: god

If you want to play, start a thread here with a word connected to "stapler". Tell me in the subject line which player you want to be -- usually, S has it easier, but if G has a decent amount of religious background, the game can be pretty fair. (I usually play G.)
