Jenga

Jenga is a game that either builds friendships or destroys them. You start with a tower of wooden blocks 18 levels high with 3 blocks in each level. The goal of the game is to remove a block from a lower level and move it to the top of the tower without the whole thing collapsing. The longer the game goes on, the taller the tower gets, and it becomes more and more structurally unsound. Everyone takes turns pulling out a piece until the tower falls over. Then everyone yells out “Jenga!” and shrieks with glee while bystanders look on with disdain. The loser is whoever knocked over the tower. The winner is whoever removed the last piece successfully. Jenga was originally a kid’s game, but then I grew up and now it’s a drinking game. My local dive bar has a few Jenga sets and there’s a custom of writing something on a piece whenever you play. It’s a good way to commemorate a special event or talk shit to a future player. It’s fun to play with blocks. Reconnect with your inner child and play some Jenga.

Holding Your Breath When You Drive Through a Tunnel

Some people are in the habit of holding their breath when they drive through a tunnel. I know this because I am one of them. I’ve done it ever since I was a kid. It’s a custom that’s been passed down for generations. When I asked why, I was told it was an emergency air supply if the tunnel suddenly collapsed. It seemed reasonable at the time so I never questioned it and I’ve been doing it ever since. It’s better to hold your breath when you’re the passenger. You can get lightheaded and that’s not so bueno if you’re driving. Once you’ve made it through the tunnel successfully, you get to make a wish. That’s your reward for surviving the trip. Use it wisely.
