The Ultimate World of Warcraft Gamer

Wowsa! I must say this guy is hard­core. To most­ly every­one, they’d say he is “nuts”.

Going under the moniker “Pre­pared” in WoW, he has 36-char­ac­ters and plays them on 11 com­put­ers all at once. Dude pays about $5,700+ per year to keep all of his squad. He’s pret­ty much his own clan.

Any­ways, damn… that’s just too much mon­ey and time to be wast­ing on oth­er things. For exam­ple, in Juan-fash­ion, $5,700 is 5,700 items in Jack in the Box’ Dol­lar Menu. That can feed hec­ka/mad/grip amount of peeps. I know that it won’t stop pover­ty, but that can take a good chunk of neg­a­tiv­i­ty away from it.

Maybe we can have this dude take a clos­er look at what he is doing. Have him con­tribute in more of a pos­i­tive way to not only Bliz­zard but to soci­ety as well.

PS. I guess this can be my Blog Action Day post as well.

Wedding Blunder — Best Man Fails

With all the wed­dings that I have been going to late­ly, I just wish I don’t see this:

The groom should’ve just jumped in after the bride and the priest, and have every­one else jump in the pool to make the most of it. That would’ve been dope, fun­ny and mem­o­rable. The bride could feel bet­ter if any that way haha
