Scattered Shots: Pure awesome {WoW}

May 24th 2010 7:40PM @Hrist: Damn, Haterade I forgot you could cipher yer' letters now! You're right though so a royalty check's in the mailbox along with a spectral tiger coupon. Just clink the special link and enter your account information.... :)

Fair play though where its due: all credit belongs to Hrist for The Greatness that is The Belt.

Long Live the Belt; All Hail the Belt.

Scattered Shots: Pure awesome {WoW}

May 24th 2010 12:08PM I clicked the comments wondering how long it would take before someone again rose to Frost's latest tongue-in-cheek taunts.

Ravasha, you did so much to uplift our spirits with your proudly displayed first spot post that the hunter community in turn wishes to present your very own limited edition Reading Comphrension championship belt:


Ravasha wear it with pride, my friend, wear it with pride.

Celestial Steed, Lil' XT now active on the Blizzard Store {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 1:33PM So when I went to purchase the checkout queue was 5500+ people and 45 minutes wait.

I did the math while I waited...that means:

6800+ purchases per hour X $25 - $35 per purchase (minimum) = $68 to $238K PER HOUR and climbing.

Not a bad revenue stream for, what- a couple hundred man-hours of graphic artists' work?

GoGo Blizz cashmachine! /salute :)

Scattered Shots: Hunter pets in Cataclysm {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 11:34AM ...arrghhh....

Apparently coding doesn't like Fail Belts, Frost. Tell your editors the Hunters need this fixed immediately! :)

Apr 15th 2010 11:29AM Good Lord this thread is full of proof that the intarwebs really do need a /sarcasm font.

Frost was taunting you healers as a joke and you answered the call like Death Gripped Murlocs. In recognition of your recent achievement in basic reading comprehension, the hunter community proudly awards you our coveted

====== Championship Belt

Don't get it dirty. Its a traveling trophy so we'll be expecting it back soon to award to the next vict....err.... recipient.

...oh and this was sarcasm too, in case it still isn't clear that we really do

Big Crits, a new WoW reality series {WoW}

Mar 10th 2010 9:49AM Fully expecting this to become blacked out so quickly by down votes that it opens a wormhole in the comments section but here goes...

| last year I had this crazy idea: to make a TV show about a raiding guild

Seems to me you might want to embrace your first instincts.

I can't imagine anything less appealing than bringing the worst element in the current broadcast media trend - i.e. reality programming - and focusing it on some of the least compelling reasons - at least for me - for playing WoW.

But hey, what do I know...good luck chasing your vision!

Scattered Shots: Hunter set bonuses {WoW}

Mar 4th 2010 6:12PM Breaking this out by spec is helpful, especially with the MM differences. Keep up the good work, Frost.

Quitting smoking in Azeroth {WoW}

Aug 4th 2009 11:10AM As Vizzini's friends kept telling him; "Disingenuous? You keep using that word, but I do not think it means what you think it means..."

I don't see the lack of frankness in the results by FDA's DPA as suggested by the description "disingenuous":

* Diethylene glycol was detected in one cartridge at approximately 1%. Diethylene glycol, an ingredient used in antifreeze, is toxic to humans.
* Certain tobacco-specific nitrosamines which are human carcinogens were detected in half of the samples tested.
* Tobacco-specific impurities suspected of being harmful to humans-anabasine, myosmine, and β-nicotyrine-were detected in a majority of the samples tested.
* The electronic cigarette cartridges that were labeled as containing no nicotine had low levels of nicotine present in all cartridges tested, except one.
* Three different electronic cigarette cartridges with the same label were tested and each cartridge emitted a markedly different amount of nicotine with each puff. The nicotine levels per puff ranged from 26.8 to 43.2 mcg nicotine/100 mL puff.
* One high-nicotine cartridge delivered twice as much nicotine to users when the vapor from that electronic cigarette brand was inhaled than was delivered by a sample of the nicotine inhalation product (used as a control) approved by FDA for use as a smoking cessation aid.


Oh, and grats Michael! As a former smoker to whom quitting didn't come easily, I know how much work that achievement can take. Well done! /cheer

[UPDATED] Playtime over for You Play or We Pay {WoW}

Apr 16th 2009 4:54PM In what seemed like an endless circle of rereading, I was amused to learn the initial and too-confusing-to-be-complete first sentence.
