Disturbing Math

World of Warcraft came out on November 23rd, 2004 - exactly one year this wednesday. My playtime in-game on my main character (disregarding alts) is 42 days (as in, over the past year i've played the game for just over 1000 hours.)

42/365 = 0.115, meaning that I spent about 11.5% of last year playing WoW.

I'm sure you'll agree with me, that percentage is fairly disturbing. If I was really dedicated I would be over 15%.

(I have a friend in-game who is apparently independantly wealthy, as her playtime stands at over 98 days played. I'll let you do that math yourself.)

First Real Celebrity Sighting

I went out to Santa Monica last night with a bunch of friends to see a production of Neil Labute's The Shape Of Things. It was a mediocre production, but I did see Jason Schwartzman there, of Rushmore and I <3 Huckabees fame. He had a shaggy beard. Stu said it's cause he's playing a European king in something.

McCain's Vision

A powerful speech by John McCain - http://www.realclearpolitics.com/Commentary/com-11_11_05_SJM.html.

Why can't all politicians speak with such vigor, compassion, and lucidity? I would vote for this man for president in a heartbeat. Let's hope the Republicans choose him over Frist in 2008.

Charity for the New Milennium

I donated a video game to the San Diego Children's Hospital today. Please help out however you can; Penny-Arcade does this once a year and I think it's an AMAZING way to make sick kids a little happier.
