Microsoft Poland Photoshops Black Guy To White One

hitmanWilly1337 Well, it IS the evil empire and all. (964 comments)

Ok, honestly, is anyone actually surprised by anything these guys do anymore? I mean, c'mon, if it makes them a buck they'll do it. Be it trying to drive competition out of business, stealing good ideas from smaller companies and screwing them up, etc. Seriously, it wouldn't surprise me if they tried to patent the use of a mouse if they could. I mean, MS didn't get the name "evil empire" by being ethical.

Where Does a Geek Find a Social Life?

hitmanWilly1337 Re:Try Church (1354 comments)

That is assuming that you can actually walk into a church without, you know, bursting into flames. Some of us are kind of screwed on that account.

Where Does a Geek Find a Social Life?

hitmanWilly1337 Re:eHarmony? (1354 comments)

If they have a WoW account, pass me their number, I would want to meet them too!

If, however, they post their character's pic as their own, pass. As much as I'd love to bang a night elf, I doubt that they exist in RL.

Where Does a Geek Find a Social Life?

hitmanWilly1337 Don't try too hard (1354 comments)

The first mistake you're making is that you're trying to meet women. Every girlfriend I've ever met I've met when I wasn't looking for one. For example, my current one I met while in training for the National Guard, in a 90% male environment. The last one I had I met as a co-worker in an auto shop, also a primarily male environment. Yet 9 times out of 10 when I deliberately go looking for female companionship I come up empty. If you go out like you are now, you'll stink of desperation, and that is quite possibly the biggest turn-off there is. Just find some RL stuff you enjoy, and go do that. Hell, even just playing online can sometimes lead to a relationship. A good friend of mine met an incredibly hot girl, who he moved in with later, playing WoW. The trick is just be yourself, be honest and open, and most importantly, be patient. Stuff happens, you just have to jump when the opportunity presents itself.

Where Does a Geek Find a Social Life?

If you're the "fat WOW-playing" type of geek, lose some weight, unless you're also growing a zz-top beard and riding a Fatboy.

What if you're the scrawny, pale, basement dwelling WoW player?

Sure you can. Think about the kind of person you'd want. Then figure out the lie they'd tell about themselves in the personal section. Lie accordingly about yourself, and go from there.

Sounds like RL dating as well.
