    Crash and Burn - Pickup Stories

    Last night my friends and I were drunk off our ***** from the win and we, for some reason, decided to make up a game called Crash and Burn. Some of you probably have done something similar but basically you pick a friend, pick a girl, and give the friend a pickup line. Pretty simple. 2 Goals, worse reaction, and best reaction/finish out of the group.

    We literally were walking into random parties, doing lines, and getting the **** out. Then we made our way onto Welch and walked up and down playing the game. Results were hilarious, one of the pickup lines was even a pterodactyl call and my friend even got her number. Worse reactions? A slap in the face, saying "You'll never ******* find it" when asked directions to her heart, drink in the face, girl sitting on the curb just straight up left before the line was said, another was 31 (we're all 19/20) We have so many stories from this night.

    Has anyone ever done something like this? Best story?

    Oh, and we tried the Australian/British accent 4 times and had fails.


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542

    So this thread isn't about trucks catching fire?


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Crash and Burn - Pickup Stories

    I once tried to pretend to be a Spanish exchange student, which seemed like a good idea because I took 4 years of Spanish in HS. Figured it might be enough to convince so dumb girl. It was working alright until she started speaking fluent Spanish. I said "I don't really know that much Spanish." She just walked away.

    I definitely did not read this as you intended it to be.

    Re: Crash and Burn - Pickup Stories

    I gave a girl a pick up line, she told me off, I leaned in and whispered in her ear "don't worry baby, I've been turned down by much hotter girls than you", she attempted to throw drink in my face. Most of it landed on the African American gal behind me, big *** chick fight ensued.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Well the thing was mainly to get my friends to try to talk and mingle, they are shy engineer majors so it got them out to talk instead of just be there, you know? Eventually I am going to work them up to actually trying because, even trying to fail, they were still successful and got some numbers, dances, etc. Basically I was just trying to show them to just try and you'll be successful.

    I was taking it as seriously as I could with the lines I was given. Definitely the most successful out of the 4...

    Maybe "saying our lines" would have been a better way to say this...

    Clarify on that last part, there....was this a fight between women with large behinds, or was this a large fight between women?

    Re: Crash and Burn - Pickup Stories

    Who goes out in a college town to purposely fail at picking up girls? College girls are easier to get into than community college. If your ''friends'' can't get laid in college than they might as well plan on being alone forever. Talking to girls isn't brain surgery.
