hey man, don't dump your hippie fantasies on me!! Woodstock is over..there was only one original and it will never happen again!! and it was awesome
ok Carpinteria has enough festivals..we have two good solid fun festivals..the Avocado Fest and the 4th of July fest....we don't need anymore...but I see the city is contemplating an Open Streets Festival like they have in Santa Barbara...no no no no! this must not happen here..there is no reason for this to happen...they close down the city so a bunch of annoying hipsters and yuppies can play in the streets...I mean there's the Bluffs, the beach, the mountains-plenty of room for recreation..why the fruck would they want to close the streets?? no no no no!!
but the worst festival is the Beer Festival called Surf and Suds...beer and surfing have nothing to do with each other and combining them is a stupid idea..yet for the 4th time in as many years, Carpinteria State Beach will hold the Surf and Suds Beer Festival..this is advertised in the Coastal View who also sponsors the fest..but I noticed a "Mega Sized Beer Pong" was mentioned in the ad
beer pong..isn't that the game that affluenza kid from Texas was playing when he got busted for violating his court order...he's the kid who killed four people while driving drunk
The Official Rules of Beer Pong
Beer Pong is a drinking game which is especially popular among college students, but can be enjoyed by any group looking for anything from a good buzz to a drunken stupor. It is generally played in pairs of two, with the teams standing at opposing ends of a flat, rectangular surface (preferably a ping pong table, but anything accepted by both teams can be used). Six or ten cups are formed in a pyramid at either end of the table, with the base of the pyramid centered at the edge of the table. The players attempt to toss or bounce ping pong balls into the cups, each of which is filled with 1/3 of a beer (or other intoxicating spirit). When a player makes a shot into a cup of the opposing team, a player from the opposing team drinks the contents of the cup and removes it from the table. The game continues in this way, with both players from one team taking a shot, followed by both players from the other team. The team that is able to clear all of the opposing team’s cups first is the winner, with the losing team splitting the contents of the winning team’s remaining cups. To begin, a player from each team takes a shot simultaneously without looking at the cups. This is repeated until one team makes, and one team misses. This decides who gets the first possestion. After the first game, the winning team gets the first shot. The elbow rule is also applied for EVERY shot. A players elbow may not cross the plane of the playing table or it does not count.It sounds simple, but the game is more complex than it first appears, as you will soon see…
Bouncing vs Tossing:
Any player taking a shot has the option of attempting to toss the ball directly into the opposing team’s cups or bouncing the ball one or more times into the cups. If a player successfully makes a bounced shot, the opposing team has to drink two cups: the one in which the shot was made and another from the pyramid. As we already know, a regular (non-bounced) toss is only worth a single cup. However, there is a catch. The defending (non-throwing) team can defend cups against bounced a shot by blocking or swatting the ball once it hits the table. The defending team can only defend a shot once the ball has hit the table, so the throwing team doesn’t take a risk by tossing instead of bouncing, as tossed shots are indefensible. Defending a toss as if it were a bounce is a sign of either drunkenness or dishonor; either way, it is punished at the very least by letting the player shoot again, if not by drinking a cup. This can be decided in a civil fashion by both sides using their best judgment, taking into account the circumstances surrounding the infraction.
how stupid is this? I just can't believe that Carpinteria is holding a festival that encourages people to get drunk..ENCOURAGES!!! is this why we're fighting all these desert wars so these little jerk-offs can play beer pong all day???
hopefully they will play beer pong, get drunk and go surfing at Carp beach...
and there'll be plenty of sharks just off shore...waiting
can you dig it??
