Now this Breakpoint shit is over, so come to Simulaatio

category: general [glöplog]
A random sentence from the simulaatio-site "No drugs or alcohol are allowed at the party place." I think I found a perfectly valid reason not to go :p

DJefke: There is this thing called "sucking up to the police/the owner of the party place/the sponsors/etc by not writing stuff against the law on websites". It's quite common in nordic computer parties :)

Basically, if you want to rent a school for your party, you don't want to write "everyone come trash the place with as much alcohol as you like". In case any of the beforementioned people go read on that site, you can be quite sure there won't be any party.

In other words, look at at certain picture site and check out pictures from previous years... ;)

So, what you're saying is that Finland is the European version of the USA? :-p

No drugs or alcohol are allowed at the party place.

I don't know if it's intentional, but that sentence actually says that it's allowed to not use drugs or alcohol at the party place, not that it's forbidden to use it :-)

I think that's not intentional, but good that we cleared that up then..

No drugs or alcohol are allowed at the party place.

As i see it, it says that you either have to have no drugs with you at the party place (nothing about alcohol), or have some alcohol, in which case you can carry as much other fancy stuff as you can (or can not) handle :D

as if that regulation had any desired effect on the previous installments of simulaatio

sparcus: What kind of drugs and/or alcohol are you on? There's no way that sentence can be interpreted in the way you just did...

Well, I just did, didn't I?

I'll make it easy for you:

Drugs are allowed at the party place => It's allowed to have drugs.
Lots of drugs are allowed at the party place => It's allowed to have lots of drugs.
No drugs are allowed at the party place => It's allowed to have no drugs.

What it should have said:
Drugs are not allowed at the partyplace.

Yes I realized it was a logical impossibility ;)

Still, no drugs allowed == drugs are not allowed.

No party place is not allowed at drugs or alcohol.
Only drugs and alcohol are allowed outside the party place.
Pick your favourite!

djefke as someone partially pointed out, the "no drugs or alcohol at the partyplace" is pretty much mandatory for finnish parties. Firstly because drugs are illegal (mmkay) and secondly because 99% of the venues available for demoparties in finland are usually schools or other facilities where its impossible to have alcohol because of the owners of the venue. Stream and Icons have been the only parties thus far (/lately) that have had a german-style "beer at the infodesk" thing going on, mainly due to the venue of both parties being more 'adult'..

Are there no 'adult' venues available for reasonable prices in Varkaus?

.. that remains to be seen when the final search for a better party place is completed, so far it looks rather black :(
