Woah, so much beer... Ummm, ANYONE UP FOR AN INSTANT HUB CHALLENGE?

    Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago

    Ok, if we can get at least 3 other people to play, I'm launching a THIRTY minute hub challenge at 8:40 my time.

    Rules:  Write a hub in thirty minutes.  Hit publish. (edit later)


    Other rules:   None



    Anyone?

      OMG I'm finally here when you're doing one of these...oh sh*t...What am I going to write about...How long from now are you planning on starting? I think I want in...but I gotta make a drink first...LOL

      1. Shadesbreath profile image88
        Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        20 minutes to start. 

        Pick a topic you can rant about.. or spin off to off mind.

        I'm debating a rant about McDonals French Fries and a puke about how much I love the movie the 13th Warrior.

        Remember, you can add pictures and crap later.

      umm...maybe you should have a rule where you list the number of words or something.  i mean in theory ANYONE here could just easily write a couple of paragraphs and slap on a bunch of pics on the hub, then be done in less than five minutes.  lol  no offense, but just trying to help

      1. Shadesbreath profile image88
        Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Nah.. word counts just complicate things.  If they don't have enough words, the hubscore will bomb.  I'm not here to tell people what a good hub is.  People know.   Besides, the insta-hubs can be edited later anyway. smile 

        It's just fun.

      Dude, this is a great hub, what are you talking about?  A tiny bit of polish and some Amazon capsules and you're going to be buying beer after the next 3o minute challenge.

      Plus, you have great taste in movies.  Seriously, nice work.

          Lol, thanks Shades and TGS smile I hope that isn't the beer talking though tongue

          Although if it happens that I'm able to buy beer, what would you recommend? I think I've only had Molson Canadian, or well it's the only one I remember drinking.

          Not sure if that's a good thing XD

            TheGlassSpiderposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            I'm not much of a beer drinker, myself...I prefer vodka, frankly. However, there IS a wheat ale that I love called Blue Moon; try it out if you get a chance.

            And once again, great job on the hub!

              Ah, great job on yours too TGS!

              Wow I just realized I didn't comment on yours! I could have sworn I did. My bad sad check it now.

              I will try that Blue Moon, I think I've heard of it before. The name alone works for me, haha. I actually prefer beer to vodka though, I just haven't tried many of  them LOL. Vodka's not bad, though.

              One thing I will be staying away from is spiced rum though... memories of a poor Halloween come to mind. The irony is that I was dressed like a pirate.

                Hahaha...I have fond memories of spiced rum. Once upon a time when I was in college, it was a tradition in our drama club that after your first show one was initiated by allowing another, elder, member of the club pour Cap'n Morgan's shots down your throat....Ah...college days. LOL

                No worries on the comment! Although I do look forward to anything you might have to say! smile

                    Well, if you do, make sure you drink water IN BETWEEN the drinks! That way, you won't get dehydrated and you'll offset most of the worst hangover symptoms.

                    And don't do it...you know, regularly.

                    Damn. I'm a bad influence.

      Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Damn, Cags?  Are you always going to tackle deep ass subjects during these 30 minute things?  I write little consumer rants about Lowe's or a movie review... you take on capitalism, socio-cultural imperatives, motivation, human nature... and other big words.

      Jesus.

      This is supposed to be light stuff.  You'll make us look simple if you don't at least sometimes write something silly. Sheesh.  Turn down your brain!

      1. TheGlassSpider profile image82
        TheGlassSpiderposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        If I know anything about Cags at all...it's that his brain is always on full throttle...at least that's what it looks like

        *models her tin foil lingerie...* It's kinda crinkly...but I like it! What do you think??

          Have no worry. I published one hub with relation to comedic type stuff. If you are interested- I tackles some questions, meaningless questions some posted to a forum. The questions are nonsensical but in the end it was funny. Even the comments on it were too.

          It was called interesting-questions-in-need-of-answering-set-a-task

Will make some sort of Karma balance to have a great real writer like you get paid for a commercial piece because it was just, well, true.  smile

          Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Well, see, Jesus went away for a long time (some say he died and then came back), but others say that even after that, he went away again, and then, someday, he is supposed to come back.  People really like him.  Very popular.

          Then there is you, on HubPages.  I'll leave it to you to weed out the magnifications that don't work in the metaphor, factor in some enthusiam on my part, divided by 11 beers, and, well, crap, I lost the math I was doing...

          ... uh, what?

            In my current frame of mind...I really would like to be able to turn one cheetoh into an entire bag...but unfortunately I can't.  Same goes for that whole water into....hmm...

            Then again, I'm not really a wine drinker and I do have a really nice coffee maker so I guess technically I can turn water into coffee.

            Ohhhhh wait...I get it.  You thought I'd been nailed right?

                  You never know when Shades feels like that - unless you count his drinks. I think 11th does trigger the rush - but with tin foil lingerie it may happen on 9th. wink

      Hah, Cags! Dammit.

      I'm tempted.  See how many we can get.  If we can get three or four more pretty quick might be worth it.  I have to get up early though, let's see who you can drum up.  Has to be your energy tonight to make it happen.  See who's out there.  (start a new thread... you won't drum up peeps with a used thread.)
