In the spirit of the last post, I thought I'd chuck this up as well. A mate and I were talking about setting up a guild on World of Warcraft. We quickly came to the conclusion that we didn't know enough people we could rope in (you need nine people to set up a guild).
Will: The problem is, there isn't anyone else. I think your going to have to make some random internet friends Simon.
Me: Hey, why do I have to deal with the scary Internet people?
Will: Because you are so much nicer to them than I would be. Plus, you know l337 speak better than I do, so you can communicate with them. If I had to do it, it would be like talking to a French or Spanish native who didn't speak english!
Me: It wouldn't go well. I can just see it now:
Will Whispers: There's one. That gnome with the fish and the giant shoulder pads.
