I want to make the world a weirder place... (in Off-topic)


RedWolf October 21 2009 4:40 PM EDT

I've been planning to stage a fake phone conversation with myself while I'm walking back from one of my classes some day. I want it to be extremely absurd, perhaps funny, and I want it to be overheard. But I don't plan to actually be speaking to anyone.

However, I need ideas for such a conversation. Any ideas?

"Please mom, I love you"

"But, why!!"

*Breaks out crying*


I'd laugh.

Just have a loud, one-sided conversation about CB strategies. I guarantee you'll sound weird.

But you may want to rethink your goal here. While virginity is a sacred flower, you may not want to keep it forever. ;)

using the words proctologist, narwhol and parthenogenesis in one conversation is sure to raise eyebrows...this could be a cool contest.

have people submit a few words each and then have people write the one-sided conversation! ; )

Well advice on stuff to avoid would be anything illegal or violent really.
Maybe have a conversation about a movie you saw or a dinner you ate.

"What do you mean he got away?!"

"Didn't you tag him??"

"Well damnit, we need to hunt him down before he alerts the authorities!!"

"Just have a loud, one-sided conversation about CB strategies. I guarantee you'll sound weird."

I've done this several times, not at school (didnt play CB back when I was in school), but in public places none-the-less. And i was actually talking to someone. :P Gotta be a lot crazier to get much notice though. Stuff like :


"WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE ESCAPED?!?!"

"The ships gonna be here in 2 hours, we NEED to find that Uranium!"

"Is it bad when a glowstick pops inside someone's body?"

hehe, didn't read all the replies ti just now, somebody escaping is always an eye-catcher ~_^

The CB thing could work over a long period of time though. Like become known for walking out of class every day and start talking some gibberish about Ethereal Chains and a Blacksword of Nan Elmoth

Oh man, talking about CB things in RL is weird. Saying some of those things out loud instead of typing them in the forums...didn't seem right somehow....

quoting some Hunter S. Thompson is sure to catch peoples attention.

What I usually do is order my broker to "Sell all stocks now! I don't care! Sell everything!! What do I pay you for?! Ugh."

Good luck on your quest, your objective is both Noble and Right.

WhiteWolf - the idea I had in mind was to simply be humorous/strange. I know enough not to discuss illegal things, even if I'm not really discussing them with anyone :-P

"But you may want to rethink your goal here. While virginity is a sacred flower, you may not want to keep it forever. ;)"
- Well, the idea I had in mind was to be a little strange, but not strange enough to put THAT in jeopardy :-P

Hatch and Aftermath Dynasty seem to have the right idea. Although, Hatch, about the CB thing... well, see my comment to Demigod above :-P

hmm... perhaps I will turn this into a contest. I've got plenty of cash lying around that I don't use.
