  1. Consequences

    Consequences is an old parlour game in a similar vein to the Surrealist game exquisite corpse and Mad Libs. Each person takes a turn choosing a word or phrase for one of eleven questions, in this order. ⁕Adjective for man ⁕Man's name ⁕Adjective for woman ⁕Woman's name ⁕Where they met ⁕He wore ⁕She wore ⁕He said to her ⁕She said to him ⁕The consequence was… ⁕What the world said Then the story is read: Mediocre Joe met transparent Kim at the bowling alley. Joe wore a seafoam green leisure suit. Kim wore a sandwich board. Joe said to Kim “During the last storm, we had a little party in the mud.” Kim said “She wasn’t that into me.” As a consequence, the band got back together. And the world said “Somehow, I think I saw this coming.” The game is traditionally played by writing the words on paper and folding the paper to hide the previous words before passing it to the next player. Consequences can also be played in a drawing version where the first player draws the head, passes it unseen to the second player who draws the body, then on to the third player who draws the legs. The composite person or creature is then revealed to all by unfolding the paper.

Examples of consequences in a Sentence

  1. New York:

    She doesn't look evil but her actions created evil. She has to answer for what she’s done, she has to pay for the consequences of those fateful words, those evil actions that caused a police officer’s family and the public. She knows she did it because she confessed to it.

  2. Patrick Meehan:

    A lack of consequences for when nation states carry out cyberattacks has only emboldened these adversaries to do more harm, the attack on Sony shows the dire need to upgrade our cyber defenses.

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. An ingenious, healing word why. It will heal you from stupid desires. Ask yourself why until you understand whether you need it or not. In-depth analysis of desires, will heal from ridiculous desires. 2. A stupid person wants a lot of things, a smart person wants almost nothing, because he knows what he wants, and sees his desires through and through their future consequences. 3. The storm of time, raises the storm of generations. A sandstorm of selfishness, because of which the consequences are not visible. The fog of illusion and the black humor of indifference, the screaming and grinding of the violins of the soul, which fizzle out and fly out into the void, a time where everyone thinks about themselves. All this is replaced by a dramatic silence of insight, which transforms in a different direction, already by a new generation. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  4. RAS CARDO REGGAE:

    responsibility! americans love to say-it is, what it is. I, ras cardo say:- responsibility is foresight, not hindsight. It is looking far beyond the- here and now of the consequences which will most surely flow from our actions or in-actions. We must show young people how to-look for it, embrace it, and use it by being it. This is what we should mean when we say-it is, what it is. It is something , much better when its shared.

  5. William Ralph Inge:

    There are no rewards or punishments -- only consequences.
