Ha!

In law school, my friends and I used to play "Socratic Bingo". You'd place the names of the usual suspects (the ones who always talked in class) on your board, and check them off as they made a comment. When you won, you actually had to make a comment including the word "bingo"

Example: "So, the defendant created the dangerous condition and, bingo! He can be held liable for negligence".

In my law school class we played "gunners" bingo, which was much similar to your game. Cards were distributed with the usual gunners listed. The center square, however, was blank and each player had to pick a non-gunner as their center square. In order to win in our game you just had to be the next person to ask a question, which created some pretty dumb questions. Incorporating the word bingo into the question would have created an interesting challenge.

Our version was not people, but words and phrases like "query whether..." or "would that vitiate..".....

Not so much fun as it was a sanity saver. It's hard to imagine the mind-numbing horror of beating a simple concept to death day after day, class after class....with the added bonus that out of the blue you would be called upon to expound even further. Plus, every law class always had some moron who could not resist hearing the sound of their own voice. Its people like them who made these games possible.

Yeah, Jeanine, but think about the bottom line to all those boring classes. Even though you still had to study 24/7 for the bar, having to revisit the same subject matter allowed you to target specific fields of expertise, and the people playing the games developed a unique synergy. And that's a BSbingo!

A recent webcast ad had so many BS terms in it, I thought it would fill most of the card in an updated BS Bingo.

Mr. Poje’s game plan looks like a no-brainer, covering everything from soup to nuts. Undoubtedly, his discovery is based on profitability metrics derived from critical path objectives. In this new economy, one could reverse engineer the bingo card algorithm and downsize the free square in a seamless way. To strategize from an agnostic point of view would require a strategic design to streamline the code, which would add value to the process. With a little data mining, we can find the crucial dynamic in his plan with the concomitant scenarios prioritized in real-time. BINGO! :lol:

Boy, you really drilled down on that and got into the weeds. I fully agree that this can be a real game changer. By doing this, I truly believe we can increase our top line for all stakeholders. At the end of the dayI envision this to be a win-win. If we all give 110% not only can we pick off the low-hanging fruit but we can take it to the next level. Bottom line, with this strategic, action oriented plan the sky is the limit!! What a game-changer this is.

Your forgot that we'd then have the opportunity to "leverage" everything.

Good catch, AndyH.

You certainly demonstrate that partnering is vital in the creative phase of contemporary plan studies to ensure coverage totality and the avoidance of redundancies.

Nicely done! But don't ever forget that if you proactively team across functional boundaries, you can embrace the synergies created.

Wow. Sustainable paradigm management without exogenous dychotomies that might otherwise burden our children and grandchildren.

Happy birthday, Mr. Abdul-Jabbar (April 16).
