Cool 'Do you ever get...'

This could be classed as a game or a discussion, which ever one you want.

To play this, you just ask a question along the lines of "Do you ever get, the feeling.../the thought that.../those day's when.../etc... ...It kind of works like the 'What if' game. Once you've answered the person above your posts' question truthfully - you must ask a question.

Here I go,

Do you ever get the feeling that when you see a pile of clothes, some of the creases appear to make a face?

Not really but I see faces in shadows, wallpaper and on walls that are cracked.

Ever get the feeling that even though you are alone, you feel that someone is watching you?

When I'm on my own, the slightest movement worries me 10x more than it does usually. So my answer is yes, but only if there's a trivial disturbance.

Do you ever have those days when everything goes right for you, yet you still feel depressed?

Yeah...

Do you ever get those times when you buy a game and you're really excited to play it, only to find out it's not what you expected?

Quite often. Some games just post the best pictures on the box of the scenes within and when you play them, the majority of the graphics or gameplay are not at all resemblant of the pictures on the box

Do you ever get sick and tired of Lo and her wretched contest rules?

Slightly... But I quite like reading rules though...

Do you ever get those times when you're playing an old game and the graphics trick you and make you think there's a place to go and there's just a wall?

Yeah, I always worry more when all is well. Its like a set up for calamity....not always but often.

Do you ever feel like some games are just copies of other brands and fresh ideas are lacking?

You keep on forgetting to ask another question weather it' be 'What if' or this.

Don't you understand the rules of the game?

Yes, you ask a question, I answer it and then ask another question
(sorry, you asked, I know it was a loaded question but I had to )

Did you ever have the feeling of vuja de? That none of this has ever happened before?

That sounds like that Bugs Bunny cartoon-
"Did you ever have the feeling you were being watched? That the eyes of strange creatures were upon you? Look! Out there in the audience! PEOPLE!!!!"

OK I will start with a new Q :

Does anyone ever pick up a carton of milk, expecting it to be full, only to find it's empty and your arm sort of flies right up in the air anticipating weight that isn't there?

Not really, more often for me it happens with boxes thought to be full.

Well there are a few games that seem to be trying and failing to be Tomb Raider so yes, I would have to agree JBG.

Do you feel that commercial breaks should be substituted for in-programme advertising?

Sure, my fault as always for being a bit vague!

Think of the movie 'The Truman Show' Dukem. It was largely funded (the TV show that truman never knew he was the star of), by what I call 'product Promotion'. If you have seen the film you'll know that his 'Wife' was, for example, holding up a jar of cocoa powder to the invisible camera whilst offering a cup of it to Truman and she said 'This [brand name] is the best, I have tried other brands but this is the best' or similar words.

In Big Brother they re-label everything to avoid illegal advertising so if they have a beer, the can merely reads 'beer'.

So if they incorporate brand names into certain programmes it would raise revenue. The advertiser pays to have their brand of cereal or whatever shown in a soap, for example, and that spares us lot the agony of having to listen to a myriad of adverts and let's face it, here in the UK the breaks get longer and longer

Although quite how Claims Direct and loan companies could be incorporated into a programme i do not know so maybe they would have to pay to sponsor movies like Stella Artois lager does and so on.

Not really.

Do you ever get a high mood feeling and then you think of something and it goes away?
