Rate passers by (Amusement Potential: 10-15 minutes) Secretly award passers by marks out of ten as you go along, offering (unsaid) expert criticism over their clothing, hairstyle and footwear choices.
Repeat the same word over and over until it loses its meaning (Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes) Pick a random word out of a magazine and say it aloud to yourself until it becomes a meaningless set of noises.
While that doesn’t affect AFF’s population (I haven’t heard of gay people using it that much) I would imagine the same is true for straight folk
Pinch yourself (Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes) What is pain? Why is it unpleasant? There’s nothing physical about it – it’s all in your mind. Plus, after pinching yourself for awhile, boredom will seem nice next to being in pain.
Try to swallow your tongue (Amusement Potential: 1-2 minutes) There’s not much to say about this one. It is possible, but really stupid.
Pretend to be a car (Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes) Make appropriate revving noises in your head as you walk along and add a racing commentary as you pass strangers in the street. Use blinking eyes wantmatures prices as indicators for extra authenticity.
Make Star Trek door noises (Amusement Potential: 1-2 minutes) Stand by an electric door to a bank or something and make that silly «Scccccccchwop» sound heard whenever people popped on to the bridge to hang with Captain Kirk.
Look at something for awhile, shut eyes, study after image (Amusement Potential: 2-5 minutes) Another great time waster. It takes about 30 seconds of staring to create an after image, and the image is then viewable for about the same length of time. Fun to combine this one with pushing on your eyes.
Get yourself as nauseated as possible (Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes) Best achieved by looking straight up and spinning around. Try to be so dizzy you can’t even stand up. This is also entertaining due to the «makes boredom seem a lot better» effect (see «Hurt Yourself»).
Invent a weird twitch (Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes) Adopt a bizarre twitch (e.g. flicking your head irregularly, twitching with eye or busting out sporadic cough noises) and try it out when you go shopping.
Make a low buzzing noise (Amusement Potential: 15-30 minutes) Hours of fun in libraries! Keeping a totally straight face and looking nonchalant, make a low pitch humming/buzzing noise and see who reacts.
people (not all of us are developer) but already generating $4M of net income last year(not try to brag on it, since I’m sure we’re not the best) and by the way we did end-year party last night I am pretty sure it’s more than doubled. We choose not to raise fund or sell IPO because we feel steadier without it. Unless you have great growth that can ensure market (remember, todays market is mostly based on fear) or you have great trouble and IPO is the only thing that can save you, don’t enter the market 🙂
So I could see how they could lure in a lot of straight men with the promise of casual sex, just not how they could keep the enormous churn rate down when they found they were barking up an empty tree
Maybe they just haven’t burned through 100% of the population quite yet, and want to IPO so they can cash out before they do, or maybe just a lot of people have lower standards (even when sober) than I would have guessed. Or maybe AFF is nothing but a ruse to lure men into porn sites they own, since you’d probably prefer it to your options there.
As for gay men, there are many men who hate the idea of finding a hookup or boyfriend in a bar.
