Your Coolness Quotient

Wanna find out how cool you are?

This is a game I came up with on the Harley forum, where it's important to be cool.

Here's how it works:

1. We all come up with rules and assign values to them
2. After we have a good long list of rules, we score ourselves honestly and post our quotient
3. Max value for a rule is +100, min is -100
4. Repeated rules will be averaged.
5. No arguing over values. If you don't like a rule or a value, repeat the rule and give it your own value.
6. You can only post a rule once per person. (no posting 10 times for the same rule in order to tilt the scales)


OK?

+10 for having facial hair
-50 for driving a minivan
+25 for having a tattoo
+5 for each additional tattoo
-50 for frosted hair (male)
-75 for a man bun
-13 for being left handed

get creative. when we tire of writing rules and bullshitting, I will ask for a volunteer that has time to compile the list of rules, work out the averages and post the scoring system. Then we'll find out who is the coolest of the cool!

I bet it will be bruce

(no wagering. this is for entertainment porpoises only)

No one?

Don't think you're cool enough? The thing about this is that you get to define cool.

Cmon, losers! This is fun!

-50 for not writing any of these rules
