    I like to play the guessing game for humorous effect, usually with rhetorical or seemingly rhetorical questions.

    "Guess who just found out priceless family heirlooms sink to the ocean floor."

    "Guess how many stab wounds it takes before a person stops screaming."

    "Guess how much time you just lost listening to me say this."

    (and, for a few "jokes" that came to mind):

    "What's small, wet, and red all over?" "A dying child soldier in Africa."

    "Did you hear the one about the civil rights protected by the PATRIOT ACT?" "Me neither."

    "How many cavemen does it take to screw in a lightbulb? No, I am not making some reference to a Geico commercial."

    "According the the Theory of Relativity, as a mass accelerates... Meh, I'll skip to the joke. Take a walk around the block and drop a few pounds, fatty."
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    "Guess which of these I don't have in my garage, a porche or a bucket of severed baby heads"? XD

    Yes I agree that those are amusing, though they're only so when they're grotesque or disturbing enough. If they're mundane then they really don't have the element of shock value to them sadly. Which means either people find them funny, or yeu find the cops at yeur house again >.>;;

    Which really really sucks, I'm seriously running out of freezer space ;_;

    I get out of these situations by guessing the most unlikely things that spring to mind until the other party gets frustrated and just tells me.

    "Guess what I did today!"
    "You were erotically massaged by a gibbon."
    "Er. No, really, guess."
    "You built your own working copy of the antikythera mechanism."
    "The what?"
    "You discovered how many ping pong balls fit inside a cat."
    "Remember how we were talking about how there aren't any good doughnuts around here? Well, I was talking to Joan and she told me about this new place that opened up by Fisherman's Wharf. I was going to North Beach anyway and that wasn't too far away, so I stopped in, and guess what I got you!"
    "A signed photograph of Sonny Bono."
    "I got you a chocolate cruller, dickhead."
    "That was my next guess."

    Wait wait I just realized, I made a minor omission... there is ONE guessing game I don't mind playing... generally when I want to tell someone something, but give them gradual clues to see how long it takes them to reason it out, or because I'm just curious as to their answers. The first few, without any real information, are generally rather humourous and grow progressively more witty, though as they gain clues they get more serious usually. Unless they just give more bizzare ones, then I stretch it out because it's more interesting than actually giving the answer usually >.>

    So maybe I'm a tiny bit guilty, but it's less about the 'guess whot I have' as in a game to be won, but more of a test to see how they'll react, so technically it doesn't count. I'm sure they still hate it though >.>

    The death threats may've been my first tip off. I'm not sure.

    Unless it was being used as a purely random means on determining something for greater purpose, yes.

    Y'all NTs are ornery. "Guess what happened to me today?" I love these sorts of games. It's one of those rare social situations you get a free chance to say whatever you want to, without it even having to make sense or mean anything or be responsive or personal. I throw out all sort of whatever free-association sentences I can (not waiting for the answer), before the person cuts me off with the real answer.

    If I'm being made to guess, then yes. But I love making other people play them

    "Do you hate guessing games?"

    YES. I have a few friends who do this constantly, and will actually not tell me the answer until I make some sort of guess.

    "OMG Guess what I just found out?"
    Me: "....what?"
    "NO, GUESS"

    It's a big pet peeve of mine, I don't know why it bothers me so much.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.
