In 1775, Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys captured the British fort at Ticonderoga, New York, in one of the first American victories of the Revolutionary War.

Never have I ever…. Game and the Rules


Rules:

If you arrived here because you’re interested in playing a game of Never Have I Ever, you’ve come to the right place. The Never Have I Ever Questions Generator has hundreds of questions for you to choose from including entertainment, funny, good, for kids, embarrassing, gross, food, rule-breaking, drinking, and dirty. You simply need to choose which of the categories of questions you want to use for your group and then click the button. Once done, a random Never Have I Ever question will appear and the game can begin.

How Do You Play Never Have I Ever?

Playing Never Have I Ever is quite simple, but the results can bring out a lot of fun, laughter and sometimes even shock. In the classic game, one person will say an experience that they have never had. If anyone in the group has done the stated activity, they take a shot or take a drink (this can be modified for the group playing, but it originated as a drinking game). If nobody has done the stated action, then the person who made the Never Have I Ever statement must take the shot or drink (or agreed upon action). If only a single person out of the entire group has done the action, they’re usually required to elaborate and give details about how the action came about. That’s all there is to this game.

What Are the Rules to Never Have I Ever?

Above gives the basic ways on how to play Never Have I Ever, but the Never Have I Ever rules can be easily adjusted to what the entire group agrees upon. One common adjustment is instead of each person coming up with a Never Have I Ever question, the groups uses a Never Have I Ever generator. This often makes the game go more quickly and provides questions that are sure to bring fun and excitement to the game. While it’s common for people in the group to drink when they have done the experience, this isn’t the main point of the game. The main point is to learn more about the people in the group, so whatever action the person takes to indicate they have had the experience can be negotiated among the group.

How Many People Can Play Never Have I Ever?

You need a minimum of two people to play Never Have I Ever, but it’s more common to play the game in groups of four or more. That being said, if you want to get to know someone one on one much better, suggesting to play Never Have I Ever can be an excellent way to quickly learn a lot about the other person in a fun and interesting way. There is no limit to the number of people that can play although it can get a bit unwieldy with quite large groups and it may make sense to break a large group into several smaller groups.

 

  1. Never have I ever accidentally sent a sexy email to the wrong person.
  2. Never have I ever created a Facebook account.
  3. Never have I ever watched a Hallmark movie.
  4. Never have I ever have I been to Las Vegas.
  5. Never have I ever watched the Grammy Awards.
  6. Never have I ever tried a Youtube challenge and failed miserably.
  7. Never have I ever been to Disney World.
  8. Never have I ever tried cutting my friend’s hair.
  9. Never have I ever had to spit out food because it tasted so bad.
  10. Never have I ever gone on a famous person tour.
  11. Never have I ever gone down the rabbit hole while on the Internet.

Never have I ever…


  1. Never have I ever caught something on fire while cooking.
  2. Never have I ever dressed up as the opposite sex.
  3. Never have I ever gone out in my pajamas.
  4. Never have I ever walked into something.
  5. Never have I ever accidentally laughed out loud with earphones on.
  6. Never have I ever walked around with a stain on my shirt I didn’t realize was there.
  7. Never have I ever laughed at an inappropriate time.
  8. Never have I ever have I read an ebook.
  9. Never have I ever told a dad joke.
  10. Never have I ever cried so hard I started laughing.
  11. Never have I ever watched a horror movie.

Seeing dominance and affiliation in politics

In my most recent book, I helped people see how we’re always tracking status roles in the way we make decisions. Who’s up and who’s down? What does this interaction or this purchase do to maintain or change my role?

It comes down to “who eats lunch first” and the instinct has been around since the savannah.

One place we see this really clearly is in world politics. Some candidates personify affiliation (who is with me/how are we working together) while others depend on dominance to gain and exert power (who am I defeating).

Jimmy Carter was an affiliation president. It was important to him to be in sync and to build alliances while diminishing conflict. Winston Churchhill was primarily a dominator, and using that posture, he built alliances that saved the UK in World War II.

Likability isn’t always related to this choice of dominance vs affiliation, but it’s often more difficult for a dominator to be seen as likable at the same time.

In many settings, dominance can be seen as bluster (if it’s on the surface only) or bullying (when applied in settings of unequal power).

In a world of fast media cycles, we see againagain and again the easy optics of domination. Professional wrestling is a sport of nothing but dominance–it’s a theater of status. And as we strip away the long-term from discussions of politics, Twitter and the rest of the chattersphere has created a similar theatre for politics.

In the short run, this is satisfying, because people get to feel as though their avatar, the leader who represents them, is moving up, which of course means that they’re moving up as well.

Even without a pandemic, the game theory of this short-term measure is flawed. Because in sports, not every team makes it to the finals, and not every wrestler becomes the world champ. And in politics, the repercussions of non-cooperation can last for generations.

Bluster is hard to maintain in places where performance is easy to measure. And so it tends to move to places where it’s not as easy to measure output

While the government has taken the lead in responding to the first stages of the coronavirus pandemic, the private sector will be front and center as states begin reopening their economies. With workers in increasingly dire straits, here’s how businesses can regain their trust.

How businesses choose to reopen will go a long way toward determining that trust. A successful reopening will be a long process, one that will require a dedicated team to consider everything from office redesigns to healthcare accessibility. The key? Don’t rush it.

That said, not all businesses will make it to reopening day. During the Great Recession, bankruptcies surged by 31%. Even if you’re bullish long term, it would be wise to anticipate something similar. Here’s what CEOs should know about bankruptcy during coronavirus.

The U.S. isn’t the only country reopening in a haphazard fashion—late last week, India restarted its economy after a six-week shutdown. Its relatively early reopening highlights a grim reality: Poor countries can’t afford to lockdown for as long as their wealthy counterparts.

During Pandemic, Shopify Woos A Wave Of Small Businesses Eager To Get Online

A small bright spot is Shopify, a digital marketplace that charges small businesses to create a websites but is largely hands-off with sales. From March 13 to April 24, the number of businesses using Shopify jumped 62%. Can Shopify become a small-business rival to Amazon?

Perspective
According to a report by ADP, the U.S. economy has lost 20 million jobs, putting the unemployment rate at nearly 15%. If history is any indicator, the nation needs major countercyclical spending to negate the economic effects of coronavirus. The current schema of relief loans is a stay of execution; the economy needs real relief.
The Last Word
“I’m not a betting person, but I’m cautiously optimistic.”
— Stéphane Bancel, founder and CEO of Moderna
Massachusetts-based biotech company Moderna is hoping to be the first to produce a vaccine for COVID-19. Piloted by French scientist Bancel, Moderna has used $500 million in federal funding to develop an mRNA vaccine that could dramatically shorten the vaccine development timeline. The problem? No mRNA vaccines exist on the market, for COVID-19 or any other virus. Could Moderna be the first?
