Twister Spindial Clock

The environment would become the Twister Board

For those not making the connection, by "twister spindial" i mean the Twister game piece that someone, who got talked into being the "referee" or someother ploy, would flick a loose pointer on, & it would land on "yellow : inner-elbow" or some other color : body-part correlation that people would try to make happen without falling down, cause that meant that they'd have to stop straddling that vixen on "turquiose : eye-lash".

So, use that piece as an analog clock-face.

The hip would take it literally, putting their pinky on some pink cotton-candy or their tounge against your yellow-teeth; & the lame would do the same thing except not think of a witticism such as "hyperspace time passage" or "my perception of color just altered" or "im redefining 'my pinky' as 'your navel'", that would allow a smooth transition into momentarily non-idiosyncratic conversation.

Twister Spinner http://www.mathemat...er/spinner/1966.jpg
here is what it looks like [krelnik, Oct 17 2004]

       Ah, the dreaded "tounge" strikes again. Could you try that again, please, but this time in English?   

       [And are you the exact same person as Cracked_Helmut, or merely equally badly educated?]

       That's harsh. Hmm, "harsh" that's a weird word.
bristolz, Nov 16 2002
  

       So, good doctor, am i to understand that "tounge" is too divergent from your unstated spelling for you to know what i mean?   

       Well; i'll give you a hint: <SLURP.>
redundantly_redundant, Nov 16 2002
  

       o good god; why do i even bite into bickerish bait. mysterious -1s have suddenly appeared on all my ideas... hhuh boy.
redundantly_redundant, Nov 16 2002
  

       One might say that this would be your loss.   

       Obviously, proper spelling and punctuation is preferable. It bugs the hell out of me. But it's not a crime, and none of us are exempt from the occasional slip. On top of that, many of us have language and spelling difficulties (dyslexia, dyspraxia, etc). Chill.   

       Oh, and analogue.
yamahito, Nov 17 2002
  

       Shirley analog is an accepted spelling also.
FarmerJohn, Nov 17 2002
  

       Yeah, what's with all the u's the English go in for? 'Honour.' No that's plain wrong. HONOR! Clean, perfect, symmetrical! kind of. I don't even want to get into ARSE.

       I don't think any-one wishes to get into your arse. Being inside your head is torment enough.
tyskland, Nov 17 2002
  

       The game is liable to take awhile to finish. I'm sure I'll have eyelash cramps by the end.
RayfordSteele, Nov 19 2002
  

       At least you're in the game. I have absolutely no idea what this guy's on about.
angel, Nov 19 2002
  

       He's talking about using the face and spinning pointer from the game Twister as a clock.
snarfyguy, Nov 19 2002
  

       "What time is lunch?"
"15 after Left-Hand-Red".
krelnik, Nov 19 2002
  

       Sheesh, snarfy, you appear to be right. I wonder what this says about you that you were able to understand what he was talking about?   

       rr: you should be able to Bake this pretty darn easily using a clock kit. Go for it! (Tho' you'll probably want to talk to Milton Bradley before marketing it.)
Nick@Nite, Nov 19 2002
  

       So, depending on what this "clock" tells us about the time and where its hands point, we're just supposed to stop what we're doing and put our specified appendages on something of the color indicated?   

       Sounds crazy - perhaps a little too crazy, if that's possible. Maybe this idea just needed to be written in a catchier fashion. Here, allow me....   

       Workday a bore? Need a conversation-starter? Kids need something to do? Sounds like you need: The Twister Spindial Clock (or rename it the Twister Time Fun Clock)!!   

       Simply take an ordinary spindial from the classic game Twister and turn it into an analog clock face, complete with time-keeping device and hands. Use the Twister Time Fun Clock as an ordinary wall clock. Whenever you find yourself begging for a little fun, take a gander at the time and do what it says! Left hand on blue? Quick - find something blue, like your girlfriend's sweater, and put your left hand on it. Right foot on green? Find something green, like a salad, and get that right foot on it!   

       As with the original Twister game, entertainment value increases greatly with more people participating. A great party-starter.
XSarenkaX, Nov 19 2002
  

       Or maybe you just wait for the clock to run down to determine where you put your hands/feet?
Nick@Nite, Nov 19 2002
  

       Thanks. Honorary croissants will be accepted. ;)
XSarenkaX, Nov 19 2002
  

       i guess my implications were too deep & far-reaching.
redundantly_redundant, Nov 19 2002
  

       Get to know your audience. ;)
XSarenkaX, Nov 20 2002
  

       that's actually a fairly kindly-phrased & poignant response, XSarenkaX.   

       I think you've just become my "person who i mumble indecipherable gibberish into their ear & they enunciate a managable plan clearly into the microphone." No quitters.   

       first order of business: "bat-sonar... tie their shoelaces together... really long eye-lashes... deep unholy vibrato... 2 for 1... ... ...That's It."
redundantly_redundant, Nov 22 2002
  

       Thank you for the compliment, but with all due respect, I am not willing to be your "person who [you] mumble indecipherable gibberish into [my] ear & [I] enunciate a managable plan clearly into the microphone," especially not without compensation. <holds out open palm and points to it, repeatedly>
XSarenkaX, Nov 25 2002
  

       How to know the person you've just met is a fellow baker:   

       When you ask them for the time and they respond by putting their right foot on something yellow.
