Wow, you really just like going where you don't know things.It's not the play time, you nitwit. It's the fact that I could walk out of here and use my degree to get a pt job that would pay more than the one you could land. That money we lose by not playing, is not the same for you and me. I lose more. Imagine if Warren buffet played Wow. It would be the most expensive WoW subscription of all time.And it's in reference to a second additional job; of course I'm not going to work more hours at a salaried job. I am pretty sure I am one of the few people who is overtime exempt whenever I read a WoW gold thread, and it makes me smile. I read Marcko of JTMC and I know he's a salary exempt worker, his ideas make sense 100% of the time, and he's even monetized his product. He works for Boeing, not Orange Julius.Is it so shocking to find someone prefers the writings of people who have graduated College? Really? I like full sentences, punctuation, logic and a point of view...sue me.And did you really just try and justify wasting time? It's more than just me, an AFK raider wastes the time of 24 other people. It's the "Umbrella in the stadium" scenario where it's great when you do it, but it sucks when everyone else does it too.Maybe what keeps people where they're at, is the distinct lack of urgency or true sense of loss that faulty logic encourages. It's like, you don't know you could be doing more with your life because you don't know you could be doing more with your life. As opposed to not caring.The internet is a soapbox, it is not magical smartness pills. It just makes your arguments heard round the globe, it does not impart wisdom. So far, while I have been modestlty entertained, nobody has made me seriosuly consider a single rational, diametrically opposite idea in my head, which is the only point of debate that nobody plans on winning.Seriously, I have people arguing against sound economic principle. Hey, while we're at it, let's debate the merits of gravity.

All I read when I read your drivel is you ranting about how you perceive yourself to be so much better than everyone else. You say you make $40-50k a year. That falls between the 45th and 53rd percentile. Grats on the average living wage and your degree, bro!You have written 635 words, exclusively directed at me, how much your time is worth and how I know nothing of which I am talking about. And yet, you have failed to address any of my points at all, let alone using economics.Finally, you are not looking for a second job, stop pretending that you are. Even if you did, you would not get hired at an equal rate to your salary.

frugality, you are too nice.All I can think of when I read lohr's post is:Fail. (specifically fail logic, fail ego, fail snobbery, fail economics, fail at debating, fail narcissism - well maybe win narcissism, but if you win at being narcissistic, you kind of fail at life)
