frikkin' cool ass graphics

Wow...our world may be going to hell in a handbasket, but at least we got good graphics. Check out this trailer for the World of Warcraft computer game. It was so unbelieveably cool I got shivers just watching it. We've come a long way from Bard's Tale on the Commodore 64.

OK people, when yer commenting, just hit the 'Send' button ONCE. One time. Not twice, nor three times. I know you may be getting errors, or it seems to take forever to send, or it doesn't seem like it's been sent, but it's been sent, OK? So just click 'send' and wait, or move on, cuz it's been sent, believe me. I've been cleaning up multiple comments for months, and I know it's from schitzo mouse-clickers like yerself. Patience, hyper instant-gratification people. Just send and have faith, cuz it got there, mmmkay?

Nothing says "I'm an uptight prick!" like a bowtie. Why do Republicans feel the need to express this trait through fashion? One would think it's obvious without the use of cultural symbols like bowties. A bowtie just warms us up to the fact that you're a prick. I suppose that's the point then - a bowtie is an early warning accessory for prickishness.

This group uses the f-word more times, and far more eloquently than I possibly could.

I see bow tie, I think of Orvell Redenbacher and his popcorn.

we've been playing the beta version of world of warcraft for the last couple weeks- it's just okay. i havent been able to get excited about it. game play is *slow* it's not as good as diablo by a long shot. it's pretty, but i've seen better.

It's only an fmv sequence - it's only an fmv sequence - it's only an fmv sequence...*Pant* *Pant* *Pant*

HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT FMV SEQUENCE???

If the game is only half as good, it'll be fantastic.

*looks at pitiful video card on PC and weeps*

Re: bowties. Except for Paul Simon, the bow-tie-wearing, Democrat U.S. senator from Illinois. Not a prick at all.

OK, everyone who wears a bowtie is a prick _except_ for Orville Reddenbacher, Paul Simon, and me in my high school senior pictures.

I like Penises! ...big ones (he he he)

and bowties say "small penis"

Tucker Carlson wears a bowtie and he's uptight. I don't know why, but I'd love to loosen him up some. He needs it.

One word of advice, stay away from MMORPGs (like Worlds of Warcraft)! They suck souls away. I'm not even joking.

my first position post-bachelors degree required ties. I knew how to tie a real bowtie and asked if that was OK. they said it was. it was sort of my way to flip the bird at the system. now, two master's degrees later I have risen to the level where I get to wear jeans to work every day. bowties (self tied still) only with my tuxedo. but I still keep an open mind to anyone who wears one. and if they actually know how to tie one, there is a man who knows how to use his hands

Good point, I forgot about tuxedos. That means I was a prick at prom.
