Here’s an IM conversation that amused and insulted me. X is a guy who I met via Myspace, and we used to IM each other a few times ages ago. Out of the blue, he IMs me recently and thus the following conversation occurs.
X: yea so what r u up to?
Tara-Chan: Nothing. Surfing the web.
X: anything interesting?
X: what is that?
TC: A website.
X: u like crack
TC: Why don’t you click on it and see for yourself.
X: it is porn?
TC: Okay. I’m done talking with you.
I admit, when I look at the conversation, it is amusing because of the guy’s stupidity. However, I think I was annoyed that he assumed I like the drug crack and assumed I’d send him a pornography site. I mean, I can accept that someone won’t know what Cracked.com is, and I understand about clicking on wary links, but I do not appreciate anyone thinking I am going to intentionally send them to a site that will be pornographic or filled with malware. Honestly, there are too many morons like him out there. I ended up blocking him in the end.
On the flip side, though, I did enjoy surfing through the “Tech” articles on Cracked.com :D I was skimming through the video games-related ones, and I found three that transformed me into a laughing mess (Laughingitis strikes again!), and I decided to share with the readers here for ya’ll to go through the same inflicted disease I went through :D.
12 Great Video Games With Ridiculous Premises — The best parts of this article are the “Why we didn’t care” comments. Those cracked me up the most.
12 Video Game Characters With Undiagnosed Mental Disorders — I happen to agree with all these diagnoses. Very fitting for the characters.
Nintendo Controllers’ Evolution — I found myself giggling over this article because I agreed with the writer whole-heartedly. I, too, hated the N64 controllers, and like the writer, I couldn’t figure out how to hold the darn thing, either!
