    It's basically the MO for the "too cool for school" crowd. Normally, but not necessarily, [x] is something of an esoteric nature (efficiency, bps, weight, teamwork, math and science, education).

    If it's regarding a statement/subject that is blatantly obvious/obtuse, then the purpose of the template becomes clear. It's not actually about [x].
    "Accuracy by aiming."


    Definitely not on the A-Team.

    One of the funnest games I ever played was a 40-50 man game of freeze tag. If you were hit you stood there till a team mate could run by and touch you.

    Gonna have to remember that one.

    Seems another nice twist would be to have people start scattered all over the field. This would make the field play in multiple directions, and a team just couldn't stay line abreast to make sure they could always revive each other.

    I will have to remember that! Great idea.

    And starting with players all over the field could be an added twist. Yup. To great of an idea.

    I was just trying to make an observation and see what others thought about it. Go back and read my first post and you'll find that in no way fits your template. I never implied that I was in any way too cool for [x]. I never said I didn't care about [x]. I actually said that I was as guilty as anybody in terms of caring about [x]. My question was not "why are there so many threads about [x]?", it was "is more [x] what we really want?". It was a real question, not an effort to espouse my POV as superior. I said it is a matter of personal preference.

    I'm sorry but you have the wrong impression of me. If anything I'm not cool enough for school.
