I kinda like where this post is going. I think along with it, there should be some sort of "tutorial" where we outline some basic social dynamics and personal experiences to create individual openers, routines, and negs.
For example, what is the point of a neg? To show that you're not intimidated by the HB's beauty. Combine that with what a person wants in their ideal woman - which is different from person to person - and anyone can come up with their own personalized negs.
This is a great idea... i have only been in the game for a few short weeks, but I refused to use canned material... I spent years in college doing improv, and after reading the books, I figured I could go out and try these techniques. understanding that an opener is just that, a tool to get you into a set helps you understand it can be ANYTHING at all... explaining what the reason for a neg is helps you create your own... knowing what type of routines are chick crack helps you create new ones... etc.
