Wonders of LIFE Drinking Game Rules

In which I re-hash an old blog post for some exceptionally cheap japes. 

BBC2. 9pm. 27th Jan 2013.


Take 1 finger of drink when Prof Cox says:

  • “Millions”
  • Evolution
  • Inherited
  • Quantum
  • “Probability”
  • “Vast”
  • “Epic”
  • Gregor Mendel” or “Mendelian Inheritance”
  • DNA
  • Primordial Soup
  • When ever Brian shouts at us from a moving vehicle. (Double for a flying vehicle – h/t @Markgfh)
  • Whenever you see time lapse footage of the sky or clouds (like this) – h/t @MrMMarsh

Take 2 fingers of drink for:

Take 3 fingers of drink for:

  • “Trillions*”
  • Any mention of crystallography or model of a protein/DNA structure. (Just because, OK!?)

Half-a-pint for:

  • Any side-swipe at pseudoscience – creationism, homeopathy, astrology, etc

Finish your drink whenever you see Brian in silhouette up a mountain somewhere.

    A special new thing in Life is Brian being worried/alarmed by wild animals. Sudden leopards etc deserves a drink.

    Also – entertaining captions, and when our Prof screws up one of his demos!

    ‘Genuinely’ deserves a spliff.
