I'm trying to find a game I used to play, just a couple of years ago. It was played in a web browser. There were no levels or objectives or other players; it was just you in a jeep driving around a 3-d racetrack set in a desert. It had a lot of glitches, such as falling down a hole that wasn't supposed to be there. There was weird music playing.

How do you play this word game? It's like an oral exquisite corpse for 2 players. There is a cause/effect prompt that is always the same. Both players fill in the blank (player 1 says the cause, then player 2 says the effect). Both players simultaneously think of their answers but they say them in order. The answers are humorous but always logical, even if absurd. What is the prompt for this game?

Casual/addictive doodle game Draw Something updated earlier today. Now it's not letting me log in without giving it permission to post things on my Facebook (which I very much Do Not Want).

I don't get PC game requirements; I seem to have a mental block on the issue, and I don't think I'm going to get it. I've never had one of those fancy "video card" things.

Sorry in advance for the length. We are in our 20's and I am 4 years older than him. I just got out a ltr and he has never been in one. We met in school, flirted and emailed almost daily. I was playing it cool and he seemed to be warming up to me but once break came around he cooled off. For a month I found myself chasing him - initiating all contact and eventually he said he wasn't looking for anything serious. That was ok with me! I proposed going to see him and he said he was "game". We slept together and I was pleased... twice (very considerate lover). I think he might've wanted a bj but he didn't specifically ask for one - and I thought I'd save that for the next time. [more inside]
