Apr 14th 2010 8:58AM One day, my coworkers and I were sitting around the lunch table discussing some upcoming changes to our health insurance policy. And I said, without even thinking:
"I can't believe they nerfed our dental insurance."
It took me a little while to figure out why everyone was staring at me with a quizzical expression on their face.

Feb 22nd 2010 3:46PM Ah, okay. In that case, your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.
Feb 22nd 2010 3:36PM I don't understand your complaint. If you've listened to Mr. Voletron's music on Youtube, you've noticed that the actual "video" part of it is a static picture with some MS Paint words scrawled on top. How does that have anything to do with Machinima? Youtube is just a means of distribution, the real focus is the music itself.
Feb 18th 2010 10:36AM At the company I work for, we all use instant messenger to communicate rather than actually talking to each other. One day, my status message simply said "QQ more." One of the girls stuck her head out of her office and screamed (loud enough for everyone on my floor to hear) "Julie? For the Horde or for the Alliance?"
I promptly replied "Blood and thunder!" and she cheered. Turns out she plays Horde in the same battlegroup as me. We now have water cooler conversations about how much we hate healing whichever fight is causing our raid groups to wipe this week.
Feb 11th 2010 12:40PM I think it's valid for someone to have an idea of what their personal tastes are. It's okay for raiding to not be someone's idea of fun without trying it out. I can say that I wouldn't enjoy, say, boxing, knowing that I don't really like getting hit in the face. I don't need to try it out to know that.
Same goes with raiding. For many, it's super fun to work on progressing with a group of friends. For others, WoW is a way to destress from real life, and progression raiding would just add another level of stress. WoW is a pretty big game, and the nice thing about it is that there are plenty of ways for people to enjoy it.
Jan 26th 2010 5:58PM I'm a 10-man healer only. I would say that the usefulness of this glyph depends on your raid make up. My raid group has four ranged DPS and two melee. In most fights, WG just wasn't hitting enough people to make the glyph mandatory for me. I switched it out for the Rapid Rejuv glyph for Festergut, and it was a really good call on that fight. Of course, for Rotface, Rapid Rejuv is a pain in the ass and the WG glyph would be totally useful. So I guess I need to....walk around with stacks of glyphs in my bag? Yuck.

If you don't have a credit or debit card you can use, would it be possible for you to go pick one of the generic gift cards from your local supermarket or drug store? You could pay cash and get a Visa gift card for $15 and use that for the authenticator, then just use the rest on lunch or something. (Not trying to be snarky either, just want to help think of away around the lack of credit card issue.)
Jan 7th 2010 10:36AM I agree with this.
I'm a drummer and a healer, and I would say that the relationship between a healer and a tank is very similar to that of a bass player and a drummer. It's the drummer's job to set the pace and keep the group together. It's the bass player's job to rein in that drummer when he starts rushing (as drummers almost always do) and to hold the entire thing together when the drummer does something idiotic like breaking a stick in the middle of a really intense part of the song.
In fact, I suspect the reason why I enjoy healing so much is because the synergy between a tank and a healer is so similar to what I experience with music.
Hm, perhaps I should have played the bass.
