So it turns out that I bumped into what seems to be a new phenomena, and if it isn't new, well, it's new to me. It's called the game of Gay Chicken(tm) and there are many videos on you tube on this now. Basically two straight guys look at each other as if they were going ot kiss and go ahead until one of them backs out. Normally it goes like this:
And in some very extreme cases, where the guys are indeed hardcore one upping each other this can happen:
As you can see girls seem to get a kick out of it, and I can assure you, gays are also getting a kick out of this... umm well at least some of us.
In all honesty, this is all but a good sign- people are getting less and less afraid of the "homos" which can only be a good thing(tm).
Of course if you are gay and you are playing gay chicken with a str8 guy, this is considered cheating :-P
Update: Allright, I better stop watching these things....
