In Which Someone Who Wishes to Sue a Video Game Manufacturer Has Something to Teach Us, After All
evan.goer: I have found a Stupid Warrior Forum Post that completely blows away all Stupid Rogue Forum Posts I have seen to date, added together.
slamfu: bring it on, did I write it? :)
slamfu: Oh...the shrillness
slamfu: I saw that post earlier and my lamedar warned me off.
evan.goer: At first I thought we was kidding, but reading further in the thread, it looks like he is not.
slamfu: it is to weep
evan.goer: I cannot understand how all these people manage to survive in a complex, 21st century society.
evan.goer: How do they pay their taxes?
evan.goer: How do they balance their checkbooks?
evan.goer: I am seriously confused on this point.
slamfu: because its easy. Not like we gotta watch for lions after dark. Sometimes I miss those lions.
evan.goer: Dude, okay, bringing back the lions would be bad for guys like me.
evan.goer: I can run very fast, but I'm not THAT fast.
slamfu: you're faster than plenty :) and thats all that matters.
evan.goer: Oh that is true, you don't have to be faster than the *lion*!
evan.goer: good point.
evan.goer: Well now I feel much better about Caveman Goer's survival chances then.
evan.goer: Also Caveman Goer is rarely sick.
slamfu: You might not get to ever have sex, but at least you wont get eaten.
evan.goer: yup, cannot carry the girl back to the cave, she is too heavy.
slamfu: Nor could you defeat The Rock in single combat
evan.goer: Well, sure I could. "Look over there, a lion" (throws rock)
slamfu: The Rock would never fall for such foolishness.
slamfu: Biff maybe.
evan.goer: Well not the Rock, he is a pretty smart guy. But Biff, yes.
slamfu: In fact, The Rock is likely to have a few such moves himself.
evan.goer: Well, then I am in trouble. My only hope
evan.goer: is to use my political skills to convince Biff to fight The Rock while I run off with the girl.
slamfu: is to build a stable society in which intelligence and discipline are held in high regard even if it means those who wish to sue over games are also allowed to live?
evan.goer: YES!!! Even better!
slamfu: or that.
slamfu: well you'd better get to work, cuz only the second part of that exists now.
