Posted by stranana on July 23, 2008

Feeling tired is definitely one of the repercussions of leading an ultimate lifestyle but it is quite ultimate just getting in a bit of sleep at the opportune moment.

This kind of one or two hour nap has been taken to new levels in NYC where you can go for a power nap in specially designed pods.

Smooth Parallel Parking. Ultimate.

Posted by totallyultimate on July 2, 2008

Being a one-time parallel parker is totally ultimate. Just size up the spot, swing your car into reverse, and feel your way in. No sweat.

This becomes even more ultimate when the size of the spot just exactly equals the size of your car. Double points if your car is bigger (don’t try this).


Also double points if you can do it like this:

Lending a helping hand. Ultimate.

Posted by skribble5 on June 21, 2008

Time for a slightly serious post. If you have ever been there for somebody when they needed a little emotional boost, if you have helped somebody without expecting anything in return, if you are somebody’s pillar of support, if you tell your younger siblings to stay in school and to stay away from drugs, you are definitely Ultimate.

Cufflinks. Ultimate.

Posted by totallyultimate on June 19, 2008

As discussed earlier, anything emphasizing your gentleman status is ultimate. A crisp shirt with a nice pair of cufflinks: you look good, you feel good. Of course, cuff links with large dollar signs or obnoxious images are not ultimate. Understated is always the way to go, so please leave your stormtrooper cufflinks at home.

If nickname = good then ultimate. Else, not ultimate.

Areas with free Wi-Fi hot spots. Ultimate

Posted by skribble5 on June 15, 2008

I usually get my best “out-of-box” thinking done when I’m away from the cubicle in a relaxed and chilled-out area. So, big kudos to cafés and parks that offer free wi-fi to allow for that. Get my best writing done that way.

Being Able to Solve the Rubik’s Cube. Ultimate.

Posted by totallyultimate on June 13, 2008

There are two caveats here:

1) You must be able to solve it under a minute. Spending hours playing around with a Rubik’s cube will not only scare away the girlies, but its totally not ultimate.

2) If you don’t do it under a minute, you must do it blind folded, under three minutes. Like this chap here. Despite his appearance, he is unquestionably ultimate.

R2D2 Projector. Ultimate

Posted by stranana on June 11, 2008

Despite The Phatom Menace, Star Wars is still ultimate and owning the R2D2 tv projector and dvd/cd player with audio line-in is also.

Coca Cola. Ultimate.

Posted by totallyultimate on June 11, 2008

Ultimate people drink Coke. Your friend making a big fuss about your choice of restaurant not serving Coke Zero? Not Ultimate. WTF is Coke Zero anyway? And diet Coke? Drink a herbal tea or something instead. For the real man, there’s only one option: full-fat Coke. That’s ultimate.

Seeing “The nuts” coming out on the table in poker. Ultimate.

Posted by stranana on June 11, 2008

The odds against you seeing something similar to this while playing texas hold’em are around 60’000 to 1.  If you see this you are either extremely luck or have played a lot of poker and it was statistically bound to happen once.  Either way you are pretty ultimate.

Having “the nuts” in a game of poker and seeing a guy all in. Ultimate

Posted by stranana on June 11, 2008

Not only are you ultimate for playing poker and not only are you ultimate for knowing you can’t be beaten in this hand but you are so casually ultimate that you’ve managed to convince another player it’s worth going all in.  You call the raise and take the pot.  Ultimate.

Being good at the capital game. Ultimate.

Posted by totallyultimate on June 11, 2008

Ultimate. You would think this might fall in to the not-ultimate category because the capital game is in itself quite nerdy. But when you’re sitting around the pub playing the capital game (as so often happens), there is always a smartass who throws out the challenge: What’s the capital of Burkino Faso?

If this happens, just yell back ‘Ouagadougou!’ and you will own the room. Your mastery of the capital game will never again be challenged. Ultimate.

Being able to fit exactly 3 pints into a regulation (regular) size Frisbee

Posted by stranana on June 10, 2008

Ultimate. You wouldn’t think it’s possible until you try it. Make sure the Frisbee is on a flat surface and when you get to the top poor slowly and the surface tension over the large area holds it all in. You then need a straw or two to drink it.

Dancing to that song in a club/festival/pub with all your mates

Posted by stranana on June 10, 2008

Ultimate.  You know the one. It comes on and instantly reminds you of good times with your mates and you immediately start turning your head to see where they are. They’re right next to you and you’re all giving each other that look of recognition. Let the singing and dancing begin!
