I don’t mean to be conceited, but I’m darn good at Beyond Balderdash. I’m not sure if I should be proud, or ashamed, because the whole premise of the game is that the best liar wins. It is great fun, but what does it say about me?
A few months ago, I thought about purchasing the domain fakepedia.com, and filling it FULL of false information, just to see how creative I could be. It turns out that someone recently bought up my brain child domain name, so my chance is gone — but it still sounds like fun.
As things usually do, that got me thinking. I know many students in my district (I’m a Technology Director) consider the Internet a source of unending true facts. When google turns up a result for “what causes the tides”, and my site explaining the “expansion and contraction of underwater continental plates” comes up — there might be some interesting term papers that get submitted.
Why do I laugh at that mental image? Am I a bad person? (Don’t answer that…)
