Sep 10th 2010 11:08PM It always bothers me that people are punished for being honest. I'm glad the Mary Tyler Moore girl got hired, though. Also, studies indicate that "multi-tasking" is a bad deal. Particularly with electronic media, it shortens attention spans, makes it hard to notice details and errors, and generally causes people to "surf" the information they receive, leading to more mistakes and miscommunications.
And yet, I'm always asked if I can multi-task. Yes. Yes, I can. Or I can do the job right. Your call.
May 25th 2010 10:15AM Okay, so the experience was incredible to the human, but what about the gorilla? If he can remember, can he experience sadness? Will it be upsetting to him to see his friend and then not see him again? What did his family learn from this encounter? I thought the point was to keep the gorillas in the wild?
I'm not saying this isn't amazing - it is! And it proves that the "dumb animals" aren't nearly as dumb as people would like to believe. But do we know what the long term consequences of a visit like this are?

Y'all are gonna need blood pressure medication in 10, 20 years, for sure.
Feb 4th 2010 12:09AM Given that I disliked the character of Arthas pretty much on contact in Warcraft III, I would personally argue that his "fall" began at some point in his earlier life - his casual arrogance and smug nobility were the first indicators that here was a man ripe for corruption. Confronted with an enemy he could not defeat in combat, and that would not bow to his status, he quickly started to grasp at straws - choosing time and again paths that obviously led away from the Light into increasing darkness.
I have no idea yet how this ends. I know it's been done, and I'm avoiding revelations until someone closer to me claims the kill, but I have to admit it amuses me to think that he could be "redeemed" - not in the sense of genuine remorse, or even absolution, but that he could be drawn, kicking and screaming, out of the thing he has become into something much closer to what he was when he started: A willful, spoiled child.
That would be hilarious.
Jan 23rd 2010 6:51PM I only come to WoW.com when someone suggests I should, so this doesn't really affect me directly as it surely does many, many others.
Hopefully, this is a temporary solution to a problem created when hundreds of talented people sent in their applications - it takes time to sort through all those submissions.
And if it's not... well, I personally won't be coming here any more or less often than I already do, but I know a lot of my fellow players who will view this operation very differently "going forward".
In the meantime, I'm going to cross my fingers for good luck for someone deserving, who saw an opportunity, gave it their all, and has good news on the way!
Otherwise, yeah... you're jerks.
