Still messing around with the analog "No Man's Sky" card game. So, I'm going with the idea that each card should have a completely different set layout for the players to fill in, and having different areas hint at suggested things to do in some boxes. For example:

This is fascinating. Data mining Trump tweets to determine which are coming from from Trump himself, and which are from the campaign.

Granted, it's pretty easy by just reading the content...but the fact that you can discern what device is creating the content is interesting, not to mention all of the pretty charts and graphs relating to word use and such.

So, this Olympics they added Rugby 7 and golf. Next Olympics they are adding Sports Climbing, Skateboarding, Baseball, Softball, Karate and Surfing to "youngify" the events.

I'm wondering what sports you could add to increase the chances of having a 3rd or 2nd world country to win a medal, instead of trying to figure out sports to get better TV ratings in certain demographics.

At the same time, I don't know what sports that would even mean ( beyond soccer ). Does that mean more pure running events? Why isn't Cricket an Olympic sport...or is even THAT too 1st world? Kabaddi was an Olympic sports once or twice, and that seems at least something that can be played without expensive equipment.

Baseball will definitely help too, as long as it's mostly restricted to amateurs. Aside from U.S., Japan, and South Korea, most baseball-playing countries are not major powers (i.e. Cuba, Venezuela, etc.)

An interesting article about how the scoring system works in the decathlon/heptathalon that "rigs" the sport in favor of speedy people instead of beefy throwy people.

Also the comments are interesting in many ways, with regards to swapping out events from multi-sport events ( I personally like the Olympic All-Around idea ), and the arbitrariness of track and field rules that give advantages to certain types of people that just seem to be a given ( Why are sprinters allowed to use starting blocks? Why are hurdles a certain height? etc)
How do you think the decathlon and heptathlon are scored? Take a moment. OK, do you have your answer? It’s probably wrong. It also probably makes at least as much sense as — and possibly a go…

So, I'm thinking of what an analog version of "No Man's Sky" would be like.....

So, imagine you get a deck of Tarot-sized cards, with four to six empty boxes on each card, and a two stats, Time and Distance. Each card is a planet.

You are NEVER allowed to look at other cards in the deck except for the one face-up card that you can see.

A "turn" exists like this: Based on the top face-up card, look at the Time stat...set an alarm for that many hours from now. When that alarm goes off, look at the Distance of the front card. Draw that many cards from the front of the deck and place them at the back of the deck. The revealed card is the new planet you've landed on.

If all of the boxes are empty, you are the first person to discover it! You get to name it...write it's name on the card.

Select one of the empty boxes. Draw something in the box, or write something about the planet, or leave a message, or whatever. Use things previously left as inspiration.

If all of the boxes have been filled in, modify anything you want on the card. Scratch stuff out, add to a drawing, leave another message, add more details to a description of fauna on the planet, whatever.

Start your turn over and set a new alarm based on the Time setting of this planet.

***********************

Because these are cards, you can have a shared universe! If you meet up with someone who is also playing:

Both players put their top card aside ( the "planet" that they currently are on ).
Both players shuffle their decks, and face-down, randomly trade X amount of "planets" with the other player.
The both players put their current planet back on the tops of their decks.

Sounds great. I've been thinking about this too.

Watching womens weightlifting...Egyptian girl gets hurt with over 350 pounds on her neck....

Announcers : oh that's a tough break, BUT WHAT THAT MEANS IS THE USA MEDALS IN THE EVENT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN (some amount) OF YEARS.

Man, can't even get away from NBC American jingoism in the more obscure events.

Yeah, there are so few events where they don't do that. They love Usain Bolt in his events.

Does anyone go to work everyday, and right outside on the front door, their boss post a list of "My employees, from my most favorite to the least favorite" that gets updated every week? With snarky commentary?

I guess that's how I feel about the NFL on their official website having a TEAM POWER RANKINGS section. You'd think that the NFL would be a little more agnostic in promoting EVERY team as being a good team to watch.
