How much money would it take you to play?

Money isn't worth quite as much when there's a bullet in your brain.

When my father was younger, while WWII was going on, they used to play a game...


It was called Cu-Koo!!



Here's how it worked.


Two men would go into a huge dark room.  One armed, and the other one, not armed.

The unarmed man goes around the room, and says 'cu-koo'...  Immediately, the other starts shooting in the direction of the sound.  Obviously, the idea is to get out of the way of the shots.


I'm sure many would piss themselves being in such a situation.



This is, however, a true story.



Thinking of Russian Roulette has just made me think of this.




Such games are not intended for money. To the commoner, they sound pretty absurd. However, during times of war, such games were used to show that you had the courage to look death into the face and say a hearty: " :finger: ".


Not all games are fully understood.

yea, but if you remember, in places like nam and some countries in ww2, some people would just become heroin addicts and have to basically risk their life to take their life away slower, but i also think that it was partly for underground betting, you could make a fortune if you got lucky,lol
