Should I buy my wow sub again and get the new expansion? Seriously miss it but I just don’t know anymore. MoP let me down so hard! Just stop dumbing down the game, dammit, Blizz. I don’t wanna be waiting for the kiddies to get off school just to find a group in queue :(

when i was in line at gamestop on black friday there was a group of teen bros behind me and the one guy with the baby gap sleeves too tight for his biceps shirt that was buying some cod was like “dude when i get a job i will just save 10 or 20 bucks from every paycheck i get and then in a month i’d have probably $800” and his bro with the side swept bangs wearing a trucker hat with the monster logo on it that was buying APE ESCAPE???? was like “yeah man idk why people complain about money because it is so easy to just save and be able to afford any games you want” and then some super pale 30something guy in front of me who i would normally assume was homeless if i saw him in any other setting was like “mom how can you confuse dragon’s dogma and dragon’s crown they are two entirely different games made by VERY different companies i am so embarrassed to be your son” and i was at that point where the line wasn’t moving and i was sweating and strangers were shoving past me to look at the $5 nba games and i almost loST IT!!! and then i realized i am one of these people. i hate these people. but i am one of them. and i almost cried a little bit.

In short, to anyone with dating experience, “nice guy” sounds like “essentially lackluster, if largely unobjectionable male person.” And this is what you’re presenting as your best trait. This is what you aspire to. Now, I hear some of you complaining “women always say they want a nice guy.” I know lots of women — I’m even related to a few — and I can’t say I’ve ever heard any of them say that. I can’t prove it, but this sounds like one of those things stand-up comedians say about women and everyone else just repeats. I’ve also never known a woman who cries when she breaks a nail — although I’ve known a few who swear like a 15-year-old sailor in jail — and I’ve never had a woman ask me if her outfit made her look fat unless she actually wanted and subsequently appreciated my opinion. So either I’ve stumbled upon a secret trove of women who aren’t passive-aggressive sob machines, or you need to stop mistaking Dane Cook routines for peer-reviewed sociological studies. At any rate, if a woman does say “I just wish I could find a nice guy,” I would suggest this is the equivalent of “I’m so hungry I could eat a horse.” Which is to say, she’s not hoping you’ll say, “You’re in luck, I have a dead horse in my backyard!” The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis states that the way you use language shapes your perception of the world. (This should not be confused with the Sapir-Worf hypothesis, which states that the Romulans are lying and we should raise shields.) So maybe you’d become a better person if you started by not using such a flaccid, pallid term to refer to yourself. Here’s my suggestion: Instead of trying to be a nice guy, aspire to be a good man. You might be surprised at the results.

on new years matts niece had a finger trap and was struggling with it on her fingers so I said, in an olde English accent, “all your might wont set things right, tis a gentle hand twill rule the land!” and to my disappointment no one understood my Arthur reference and she just stared at me and slowly pulled her finger out of the trap and everyone was looking at me like I was some weird rhyming nerd or something and I laughed nervously and ate my cake true story
