Seeing this Around the World game reminded me of something that happened several years ago. I was celebrating New Year's Eve at my college roommate's condo with him and some people I didn't know very well. To help bring the New Year in with a bang, we were playing some variety of Scattergories/Cranium/Guesstures. And I fear I did at least one thing that will forever haunt me.
Again, I don't remember the exact game, but you had to figure out who was who based on clues you were given. There was this guy in the corner of the room who I pegged as the nurse the whole game. He kept denying it and all the clues out there said he should have been the taxi driver or something like that. I kept trash talking the whole time and said words to the effect of "I know a male nurse when I see one." The game ends and guess who was the male nurse? That guy! Well, the bugger ended up going to nursing school shortly thereafter. I had no idea how profound the power of suggestion was until that moment. I should have said something like "rodeo clown".
