LifeMINUS: The Beginning

Written on December 16, 2008 by


A few posts ago, Ringl left off a spoiler completely ruining the surprise of this amazing segment of WarpTubes that I like to call “LifeMINUS.” Sounds epic, right? Rest assured, it is.

So what in the world is LifeMINUS? This WarpTubes series will be where Ringl and I will go without something for a week and keep you informed of how it goes. Obviously we’re not going to do something stupid like… LifeMINUS Eating, but whatever we go without will be something that will cause a noticeable change in our day to day lives. We will do it in shifts, with one of us taking on the challenge the first week, and then the other on the second week.

We have several ideas for our first LifeMINUS, but we want to leave it up to you, the reader, to influence our venture into uncharted territory. Like with Ringl’s VOD, we’re going to have a poll to allow you to choose.

But before you turn in your ballot, let me explain your choices:

  • LifeMINUS Speeding – Strict obedience to posted speed limits, and traffic laws in general. We would become those people you do NOT want to get behind on your daily commute.
  • LifeMINUS Fast Food – Ringl and I will have to “brown bag” it. No wonderfully convenient and cheap food. If it has a drive-thru, we can’t have it.
  • LifeMINUS Television – That magnificent glowing screen of entertainment must remain in the “off” position, whether for videogames, movies or TV shows.
  • LifeMINUS Sugar – Anything that has the white powdery stuff that we so love is untouchable for a week.

We will be taking votes until Wednesday at midnight and on Thursday Ringl will discuss the rules of our first LifeMINUS and we will reveal how we’re picking who goes first. Everyone clear? Alright, cast your votes!
