It is hard not to prashck if you know how to. I'm sure some of you on this forum can prashck. What is prashcking?

Is prashcking an odd bodily function? Involving the tongue?

Is the LTPF relevant to prashcking?

Can kids praschk? Adults?

My first thought was rolling the tongue over to the side, or curling the tip into a W. I guess not though....

Can people not on this forum prashck? Can you prashck?

Is prashcking something you learn how to do?

My first thought was rolling the tongue over to the side, or curling the tip into a W. I guess not though....

I can see how that would be fitting. On a related aside, I recently told a friend I thought there ought to be a word for words like that, sort of the equivalent of onomatopoeia but with imitating movements instead of sounds. For example, "lick".

Anyway, back to the puzzle: Does it require movement of the arms to prashck? the legs? does it require speaking?

Is prashcking a mental exercise? A physical one? Is it social? Can it only be done by a certain segment of the population (children, women, Christians, etc) or by everyone?

Is it related to curiousity? Solving problems or asking questions, for example?

If Scrabble's right, is prashcking using all your letters on one turn and thus earning a 50-point bonus?

Have you just done something with something else? hmmmmm, "with" meaning "in the company of" ? No. "with" meaning "to" ? Yope. These are hard to answer, though I'll tell you that the thing you do, when expressed in a sentence, has a direct object that isn't actually a physical object.

Is it annoying to prashck? If so: to yourself? To others? Is prashcking being aware of a bodily function? Such as the hearbeat? Or blinking? Are your own bodily functions relevant? Someone else's?

Does it involve any of the following? Yawning? Coughing? Sneezing? Clearing the throat? Hiccuping? Passing gas? Belching? Drooling? Blinking? (Is this now the LTPF list of potentially annoying bodily functions?)

Does it involve any of the following? Yawning? Coughing? Sneezing? Clearing the throat? Hiccuping? Passing gas? Belching? Drooling? Blinking? (Is this now the LTPF list of potentially annoying bodily functions?) It could really include any of these, though it would be unlikely - what's annoying is the result, not the action

Prashcking is an action that anyone can do given that he/she knows about this action. It involves communicating something to someone. This can be annoying to both the prashcker and the person this is communicated to.

Ooh, I bet that's it. And this was his really convoluted way of informing us he lost. Or, if not, does the the communication take the form of "I just _______"?

***SPOILER***

Is it a meme? Is it The Game? YES! I was, in fact, thinking of The Game originally, but prashcking is losing any game where you try not to think about something (e.g. the famous polar bear example.) And you don't have to say "I lost the game" to make someone lose, right? You just have to communicate it in some way.

Oh, and I lost the game!

Dangnabbit, now I lost too. I hate The Game.

If you don't know what it is, don't click the link, else your life become more and more miserable.

Great puzzle though!

Ah, flashbacks to high school. People would come on the intercom during play rehearsals to say "Attention, everyone: I just lost the game." Considering it's impossible to win the game, the real point of the game is to find creative ways to tell people you lost. Which Fermat has succeeded at spectacularly.

The Game is taking over people's minds... the finger-L symbol, prashcking, other losers, ... [continue LTPF list of things that could make one lose the game] Recently caught myself thinking "I lost the game" (upon seeing that as a messenger status) without actually thinking about the game...

I've seen a recent uprising of Facebook statuses announcing that someone, somewhere, has just lost The Game. Although, this puzzle has given me more appreciation for The Game, and has made me want to come up with some creative, diabolical way to announce a loss...though I doubt I'll ever top this puzzle. Brilliant puzzle, Fermat, in more ways than one!
