Overheard

In the style of Blue102's blog Overheard, I overheard the following at a LAN party last night.

Person 1: So there's this parasite that gets in crabs, and instead of them running and hiding from seagulls, it - I kid you not - this parasite makes the crabs dance! [Speaker demonstrates, waving both hands in the air, and rocking his body side-to-side.] And the gulls eat the crabs, and the parasite can get into a host higher up the food chain.

Person 2: That's the best argument against Intelligent Design that I've ever heard. If there's a Designer, he's really f***ed up.


I found it especially amusing that the first speaker would wave his arms and move around in his chair to demonstrate, but wouldn't get up. I guess it was a LAN party after all... :)

Doesn't matter what he does, when people get distracted at LAN parties, you shoot them....

I bet the real reason for the story was to distract people long enough to kill them...

Hah! :) I'm not actually into FPS games. What was actually happening at that moment was we were wating for some people with bootleg versions of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne to figure out how to get the patch onto their computers. People, it costs $25 for the Warcraft III Battlechest, and how much did you spend on that computer? We play it every LAN party, why can't you just fork over the money for it?!

The LAN parties that I go to, people never play what is "scheduled." Suddenly everyone wants to play $game_13 yet I and 10 other people don't have $game_13. So we wait for a single disk to be passed around....

And by the time everyone has it installed, a small group of 10 or 15 people have broken off and started playing another game.

But in your case, if it's played every LAN party, then yes, they should have it. :)
