    The game is described in The Sixth Discipline by Peter Singe. It is easy to replicate or you can give me $3,000 and I’ll give you a turnkey game complete with simulation.

    Hello folks,
    Me and the boys used to have a beer exercise game involving cats.   We would roam around town with a burlap bag picking up all the stray cats we could find.  Would take all of ours returnable bottles and any spare cash we hade and buy all the beer we could.  We would then take the cats and beer out to the swamp and rig up one of them there cat-a-pults.
    Down range we would take a tree branch and scratch a bullseye into the dirt.  While we had a beer we would launch the cats and see how many we could get into the bullseye.  JonnyJoe is one of those SixSmegma guys and I think he has a pink belt he wears sometimes (my wife thinks he is gay) and he knows all about Smegma stuff and depending on how the wind is blowing he would move the cat-a-pult to increase our chances of hitting the bullseye.
    Well…one day…we were drinking beer and launching cats and some of the wives showed up after the quilt-a-thon and told us we were a bunch of looser who could never get the cat to hit the target. 
    Those gals aren’t to bright they never figured out that we were only doing this a an excuse to get out of the house and drink beer.
    Later,
    Billybob

    Billybob,
    Don’t tell this to the insightful joker who started the Six Sigma is a hoax thread, but we only teach Black Belt classes to have an excuse to go out drinking beer as well. The more advanced students do it every evening and still make it to class.

    This is good to hear.  When I took my Black Belt training there were a bunch of Germans in the class.  These people are experts.  Certainly, my hop consuming skills increased substantially during my engagement with these consultants.  And here I was feeling bad because I was afraid that the quality control audits at the local establishments were detracting from all that statistics stuff.
