Don't Read This Post

Consider this fair warning to the whiners. I'm sorry, y'all. I just can't do it right now. The internet is a woeful place, and has taken its toll on me. Today I went in search of new information on Warhammer Online. Usually, I like new games to be somewhat of a surprise, so I don't read up too heavily on things. I managed to make it all the way to the checkout with the new Zelda game in my grasp, really having no idea about the game as a whole. That was quite an accomplishment, I think.

Today, however, I was weak. I went to the official site and began to look at a few screenshots. One thing led to another, and I found myself following a link to a Gamespot interview where the 'Witch Hunter' class was to be revealed.

The article itself was pretty much a fluff piece, and was a quick read.

Now, many times at the end of articles these days, you can find a little box where you can 'contribute' to the article at hand... effectively adding your own little 'two cents' to the article in question. Usually, I can ignore that section of the page like I used to ignore The Family Circus in the Sunday Paper. Today, I found myself drawn in by one of the posts on the first page. It was so long, that it must have taken a bit of effort to churn out. Intrigued, I began to read:

Keep in mind this isn't an article having anything to do AT ALL with World of Warcraft. It's a "reveal piece" for the new Warhammer game, focusing on a playable class.

I began to feel drowsy, and skimmed my way down to the bottom of the page. The posts are sorted 'newest at the top' by default, so I was intrigued when I read "Nishua" commenting on the excellent posts preceeding his own:

Nishua wants everyone to realize what a braniac he is, so he uses a lot of 'smart guy' sounding words. Accolades! Informations with an S! Too bad he struggles with punctuation.

ANYWAY! I'm excited to see what he was excited about!

Exhibit A:


Exhibit B?

Yeah. Wow. These are "educated minds" in Nishua's little corner of the world. If you guys are looking for some choice humor to liven your day, please... be my guest and read the full 'discussion' taking place RIGHT NOW at Gamespot. Me? I think I just need to lay down a bit... my uterus is aching for the children of today.
