    Need party ideas...

    As many of you might remember, on 1/31/07 a terrorist group, in a coordinated attack against the people of this great nation, attached devices that contained circuitboards, flashing lights, and batteries to buildings and bridges in 12 major cities across the US.

    In 11 of these cities, the devices were largely ignored and people went on about their business as usual. But in Boston, someone decided that a circuit board with some lights in the shape of a cartoon character must be a bomb. The city was quickly shut down as they closed the subway, bus system, and several bridges and building were evacuated. The city was in a state of panic! Was this another 9/11? Were these sinister devices really dirty bombs meant to kill innocent civilians? By the end of the day, Boston had spent over $1,000,000 (yes, i said million) dealing with the devices.

    Who could have launched such an attack on American soil- Al Quada? the Taliban? North Korea? nope... Turner Broadcasting Group. They paid 2 artists $300 each to make what ammounted to a childrens toy known as a Light Bright to be used as guerilla marketing for the upcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie.

    Rather than admit that they overreacted, the city of Boston sued TBC for $1 million in restitution and another $1 million in good faith money. The two artists who only did what they were paid by TBC to do, were forced to do a combined 140 hours of community service.

    I'm having an Aqua Teen Hunger Force marathon on the evening of 1/31/08 as a memorial to the freedom that we as a nation have given up in the 2000's. Americans as a whole have a hard time understanding that the terrorist do not intend to kill each and every one of us with bombs and plane hijackings. They seek to control us through fear. The city of Boston was so afraid that they completely shut down the city because of a lightbright hung on an overpass! Sad as it is, the events of 1/31/07 are an indication that the "war on terror" is a losing one.

    I said all that to say this:

    I'm looking for some ideas for my ATHF marathon party. I'm working on a lighted 'mooninite' for the front yard, and I know I want to incorperate the governments 'terror scale' (you know the color thing) somehow. I am also asking each guest to bring one harmless-yet-contraband item that I can confiscate at the front door much like the airport security.

    If you have any idea for other tasteless things for the party lets hear them. The less P.C., the better!

    I think it would be cool if you contacted one of the Presidential candidates' offices and tell them you're interested in sponsoring a party. Tell them how many people you expect, that the attendees are sure to vote, and ask them to help sponsor the event. Withhold the rest of the details about the party though. They might pick up some of the tab and arrange for some media coverage. The end result could be fun - especially if the candidate is one of the staunch supporters of the "Patriot" Act.

    <edit> and I think X's sign should also be there.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Strip searches?

    Or how about turning someone away at the door, only to have them come in through the back door, kicking it open and terrorizing everyone with supersoakers? Depending on habits of the partygoers maybe load one supersoaker with everclear? Or killing the power and having a batter rario setup which reports terrorist attacks a la 'War of the Worlds'?

    Does your social set include South Park fans? If so perhap having some sand to stick your heads in would go over well.

    Ooo just came up with one. Forget killing the power. Get Aqua Teen Hunger Force and copy and edit an interruption. Terror group of your choice, real of fictional. How about the MLF, not not that, the Munchkin Liberation Front!

    I'm pretty sure they intend to kill each and everyone one of us. They just haven't figured out a way to do it yet.

    The word 'Terrorist' can be defined as: One who utilizes the systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve political objectives

    Death is not the object, control is. Killing is just a means to an end.

    A lot of times, killing is not as effective as other means. On the battlefield for example, you really don't want to kill the soldiers; he'll just lay there dead. You really want to injure and incapacitate him. Then it'd require at least 1 or 2 other soldiers to carry him to a safe location. Then it'd require a paramedic to attend to him and perhaps even an ambulance to carry him back to hospital. Not to mention the resources and personnel at hospital itself. This hurts the enemy's resources and morale a lot more than just killing the guy.

    Hmm... maybe that's why the Geneva Convention requires jacketed bullets... hhm....

    I get the definition. I'll stand by my previous statement.

    As long as the semantics came up, however, the fact that they're attempting to achieve political objectives through terror does not also mean that they wouldn't also be happy killing everyone.

    Back on topic:

    You can make a mock-up metal detector to walk through out of cardboard. Put it on the front porch for everyone to walk through. Have someone wearing black jeans, T-shirt, and boots with an ATF hat manning it.

    Waterboarding for apples is a good one.

    You need a magnatron wand, and it can't vibrate. And you could make them take a urine test and pick the lamest person to take the samples.

    Have someone show up with a full size (body size) condom suit.

    This is a great idea for a party. You could get a mock Geiger counter and make it go off for everyone that you want to inspect more closely. Hire two hefty female security guards to wear “TSA” uniforms and inspect each party goer with giant “back” massagers. Don’t forget to stick a cool prismatic sticker on every one that you inspect to demonstrate that they have been inspected and have no unwanted contraband. Make a list of banned items like hair pins, bras, pens, (pencils under six inches in length are allowed), Place a small table near the door with a small sign that states that, "anything placed on this table will be confiscated". Don’t forget to let all knives, lighters, drugs, alcoholic beverages, anthrax vials and vibrators though without issue.
