Are you any good at "Family Fued"?

November 14, 2008 6:18am CST
I am assuming that Family Fued is a typical franchised TV vehicle that is seen in may parts of the world, but if you aren't familiar with it, this post will be, of course, pointless. It requires that teams made up of family members pick the most likely responses to a phrase or word. The show asks a lot of pweople what comes to mind at the phrase, say, eating out, and the top responses are percentaged and the aim of the game is to guess which are the most popualr responses. I suck at it. I'm too intellectual, too non-comformist. If I even guess a word on the list, you can bet it will be the one worth 2 points. And this probably explains why I can't get any of my topics here to get more than 20 or 30 responses at most, and most of them under 10. I simply do not know how to word a discussion topic in such a way that people will relate to it. What a bummer. Now I know that I do tend to write long and complicaterd posts in some subjects, like politics and religion, but in the other topics I try to find interesting stuff that everyone can relate to. Like the new diet discussion I started under LIfe, which has got a measly 4 replies after twelve hours. I mean really, what could be more of interest to the majority of Mylotters than the size of their waist-line? I give up. Lash

I have seen this game around and I am hopeless at it because I never know what most people think. I am always the odd one out. I have noticed that people here do not seem to appreciate your posts and I think it is very sad as your discussions are interesting. It may be that they are too intellectual for people here. I am not sure, but with the language problems that some people must have being from non English speaking countries many of them might fight your thoughts too challenging but I would have thought that those from the English speaking countries would not have this problem. I do not understand why they are not responding to your posts. Why are your friends not responding? Hmmm friends?
