Janrae’s WoW thread really took off since I last saw it. Daggy, who’s never played WoW, keeps chiming in about PC games he’s played, and proudly wears his ignorance on his sleeve.

Somebody mentioned not finding money or gold. Maybe it’s different in WoW (I haven’t played it), but in the D&D and other PC role-playing games… There were ALWAYS goldpieces to be found by smashing crates or barrels.
The D&D games do not involve “smashing” crates and boxes. You open them. I’ve played them since Pool of Radiance came out. The Blizzard games, Diablo and Diablo 2 were the first ones I encountered where you actually had to break them.
Does anyone else think Bookhoard is one of Daggy’s alts? The person kept popping up a minute or two after Daggy, until he was accused of being Larry, talking to himself. After that, he only popped up within minutes of someone else posting. After Janrae replied to Daggy’s ignorant remark, as shown above, Bookhoard posted an image of a box and a crate. Whoever Bookhoard is, I find the person to be really obnoxious.
Moving along, Dudgeon posted a link to a story he has online at Bewildering Stories. It’s called “Tripping on the Street.” Remember Dudgeon? He’s the Nitwit editor of Satirica, from Cowboy Logic Press.
The story itself isn’t really that bad — certainly better than anything Daggy could write — but it has a rather glaring error on the first page.
Her father gave his mother a serious look before he continued, then he picked up the “Bible” they had left for her.
There are only four characters in the story: Carmen, her parents, and a pastor at Carmen’s parents’ cult church, who happens to have been one of Carmen’s johns. Unless Carmen’s father married his own mother, which doesn’t appear to be the case, there is no grandmother in the story. Dudgeon probably meant “Her father gave her mother,” but as it reads, either we’ve got a little incest going on, or he introduced a new character out of nowhere, who is never again mentioned. Speaks well for the editor, doesn’t it?
Finally, we have Hertzie, with two entries yesterday. One glorifies a crackpot conspiracy theorist.
Government critic Webster Griffin Tarpley who penned the books 911 Synthetic Terrorism, Bush: Unauthorized Bio and Obama: The Post-Modern Coup. The thing that really excites me about Tarpley is his dogged determination to get to the truth about 9/11 (that’s the levelling of three of the seven World Trade Centre buildings on September 11, 2001).
Seriously, Mikkake, you’re starting to recycle the same old conspiracy theories, and it’s getting really boring.
His other entry announces that he’s set up blogs over at Blogspot for Bukkakeworld and Planet of the Owls.
. . . these two dedicated blogs will cater to all your queries and concerns. They will be the centralised hubs for all sorts of features and exclusive items of juicy relevance.
What if he threw a party and nobody came? I, for one, can’t even be bothered checking them out. I’m certain they’re relevant to nothing.
