World of Warcraft is truly for everyone


I have the ultimate proof that WoW is for all shapes and sizes. I’ve never had trouble with my children being able to play World of Warcraft. They have grown up on PC’s, parents who play, and are now experts at the Wii Nunchuck (or whatever it’s called). But I now know that WoW is truly a game for anyone.

My father-in-law has been playing for years. He’s a man who used to (apparently) ride his horse through blizzards in New Zealand to get to school back when the world was a better place. But that doesn’t stop him. He has 5 or 6 level 50 characters. They are all a little lacking in the gear department (if you look at it from a serious player’s point of view). But he has fun.

And that’s all that matters, isn’t it?? If you are a WoW player, you might enjoy checking out his rogue’s intellect stats. They’re impressive!

Old Farts R Us is lucky to have him!

And it just proves my point, that WoW is a game that everyone can enjoy — I’m just worried I’ll end up telling him off in a group – not knowing who he is … which is why I’m glad he plays alliance!

P!nk – Dear Mr. President Offical Video

You have GOT to be kidding me! For weeks now I have been getting angry whenever I hear this song. I’ve debated whether to say something about it or not, and I just cannot be silent any longer. If you want the full lyrics, you can look here.
The thing that gets me the most about this song is the complete arrogance and lack of respect that it shows. I don’t care WHAT your politics are, republican or democrat, but to suggest even for one SECOND that the president of the United States does not feel for the families of the soldiers he sends into battle is perverse.

And the line that really, really gets me is the ‘let me tell you about hard work’.

What I would like to say to that starts with F and finishes with Off, but I guess that’s not very productive. But I would like her to take a walk in George’s shoes for one day before she claims, on her stage, having fun in front of millions of fans, to know that she knows more about hard work than a man who daily weighs the fate of hundreds of millions in his mind and conscience.

And I bet the First Lady is Damned proud.
I hope George W Bush DOES invite Pink for a walk!
