I think the "thumbs down" rules needs to add a clause for these kinds of threads

You evil, sick bastard

You lose The Game when you think about The Game.

You just lost.

Good luck in the future. It will haunt you forever/

So, tell me then, how do you win? And if you do win, how do you find out you have won?

OK, so I get it now...how was everyone else aware of it in the first place? Or am I still the only idiot in the room, and this is all a surreal in-joke?

Is this like Fight Club, in that the first rule of The Game is that No One Talks About The Game?

I think it's as simple as it seems - if you think about this game, you've lost. That's the rule. I.e. this is the game where if you think about it you lose. It's difficult to participate and I'm still wondering how you win (and how you become eligible to win in the first place).

It's just a bit of silliness IMO.

Bloody hell!

And I was so close to not losing.

There, must start again.

Must not think about The Game, must not think about --

Ah crap! Lost again!

There's something refreshing about the game. Almost poetic. You can never think about how well you're doing. You can never revel in your victory. You can never appreciate doing well. You just lose. I am losing now.

It is the ultimate humbling experience.

Damn this thread. Why didn't I thumbs it down?
