Let no one tell you there is not a typical co-oper.

The following exchange between two of my housemates illustrates precisely what it is that distinguishes the co-op dweller from other urban Homo sapiens with which you may be familiar. It's the hippie-slacker patina laid over a core of intense dorkiness.

Josh: Hey, we should play Go.
Kye: Yeah! Can we get stoned first?

In these parts, yes is a good bet.

Ooo! Have you insinuated yourself into any games of Go since entering the co-op?

Negative. Though I did play a very bad game of chess last night. I got my ass handed to me along with a number of lessons on what not to do next time.

I don't think there's a Go board in the house, come to think of it. I should see if we can use social budget money to get one! And maybe Yinsh too!

Wait; were they planning to somehow acquire a Go set, then play? Or were they going to play InvisiGo? In that case, I would assume getting stoned is a necessary prerequisite to proper InvisiGo play.

I think I might do better at InvisiGo. I play much better at InvisiPool, I'll tell you that.
