Sometimes this blog just writes itself, you know.

I don't have to spend anytime thinking up witty shit to say. It just throws itself onto the page with almost no work.


Just when I thought that the child-man article was the worst, most vapid, useless piece of trash I had read online, I find the Man-Teen.

No, I'm not making these up.

This is why I said the blog writes itself.

I don't think I could write anything this funny.

Not only is the article full of completely pointless, self-serving rhetoric, it actually quotes the child-man article.

It's like some strange level of meta-retardation.

And, once again, the author just makes up words.

Fine. They want to play. Let's play.

How about Retalk?

Retalk is the state in which someone is so utterly retarded it is almost unbelievable and yet continues to speak at length about absolutely nothing.

That's a good one.

Or maybe Stupeculation?

Stupeculation is when someone makes up completely baseless arguments that try to speculate the thoughts of others when one barely has thoughts of their own.

I like that one.

How about Shutthehellupyoudamnedmorons?

This is fun.

The part of the article that I actually enjoy (yes, I did enjoy part of it) is the fact that it completely reinforces my point about the real gamer community.

If you read the comments for the article, a number of gamers take the time to point out the sheer offensive stupidity of it all.

It's nice to see that us manatee man-children and apparently non-existent female gamers can take the time from our immature video game nonsense to put people like this in their place.

People like this can prattle on all they like.

We'll be there to slap you back down.

That's how we roll.

Internet "news" can be really irritating sometimes.

There's an article on yahoo about baby lotion causing reproductive problems in babies.. in the same article they admit they have 0 proof and that the cause could be something totally different as they never tested other possibilties.
Basically they claim assumptions to be facts.. and retarded assumptions at that.

Or an article about 60% of married women in england being cheaters.. in the article it claimed the women would only sleep with other married men.. it talked about how these women were setting a new trend.. yet if they do only sleep with married men, doesn't that mean that 60% of married men in england are also cheating and setting a trend?

I could go on forever about retarded articles I have recently read but I'm sure I'll end up getting fed to a dragon or something.. I understand everyone is entitled to their opinion.. this doesn't mean however that they should advertise their stupidity.

I agree completely and had to post a comment of my own on the article.

I too felt the need to leave a comment. That bitch has no idea what she's rambling on about. Neither did that first one, come to think of it. As I said in my comment, research and insight must be against feminist values. I almost wish these two had been born in the middle east so that they wouldn't be allowed to run their mouths off without permission.

Don't be so surprised, you know what the article says is true. Besides we're all wearing glasses, we are fat, we're all boys, we don't like hanging out with other people and (obviusly) all of us have killed our family with a katana.

Damned "news", always with the same you think someone will ever investigate the world of gaming instead of just writing the more stereotypical thing? or even think: "hey, what if we asked some gamers?"

PS:this is my first post ever in this blog, but I love it.
PS2:apologies if my english is not too understandable, it's gone a bit rusty for me.
PS3:Regards from a WoW player.

Damn! Now my head hurts.....i think i got an aneurysm. Such stupidity. Can't someone make a deadly virus that kills all stupid people? Even if it surprises me in a stupid moment, i'd consider it collateral damage as long as stupid people are wiped out.
But i do have comment her article:

Yes, of course. Xboxes are toys and no adult would ever play on a console. Truly, the title of this article fits. The dark ages, it seems like this was the time of birth of the writer. Welcome to the present!

Get amusingly drunk, instigate punch-ups? How very mature. Why don't we just hit each other over the head with wooden sticks? Watching Big Brother?.......well, how........sane....and.....interesting.....right

"It’s worse than grown men building Hornby 00-gauge train sets in their attics, or constructing battles with painted toy soldiers." i really need to comment on that? Is chucking wood so much more a hobby for a grown up man? Or polishing the own car until it reflects enough sun to burn ones eyes out? Or, heh, pursue women ineffectually?

"Perhaps there’s nothing to complain of about this man-teen era, unless you’re a woman with a ticking biological clock, waiting for someone – anyone – to grow up."

--Honestly, doesn't that sound a little, hmmm, let's say frustrated?

So many posts! Damn, I need a day off to read all of them! Nice to see you back around here...

There have been a couple of more reasoned articles and books by economics professors (I can't think of names but you can Amazon them) that basically show that the development of the Pill allowed women more control over pregnancies and that this lead to the higher average marriage age; older parents, etc. etc.
where is the article about the girl-child or teen-woman who only worries about Coach purses, watches Lifetime Movie Network, and endless reruns of America's Next Top Model >.< Of course, any man who wrote such an article would be called a sexist by these same learned "womyn" of the feminist left.

[GM Dave], I applaud your wit and intelligence.

I think the most interesting part of that article is the lack of a rating system.

Somehow, someone knew the pile of garbage would be rated into the ground, or worse. This steaming pile of crap is so off base you almost think for a second that the writer is attempting a sad joke, but alas, this isn't the case.

Keep fighting for our generation Dave, we're behind you man!

Dave, "retalk" perhaps should be "idiot commentary that simply repeats what other commentators have said".

It's a damn shame the first article didn't allow comments; the UK article is getting outraged-commented to the ground by folks bringing up the exact same points Dave has. GO DAVE!

I am totally going to start using stupeculation - in all of it's new tenses.

At 5:44 PM, Blogger Hector said...

this article just show the same true over and over again.

As [GM]Dave said: ppl have to much damed free time on their hands and they need a hobby.

Great entry [GM]Dave I want to say that I start missing Jormy and the RMT slaughtering but is also fun to discus serious topics time to time.

This is EXACTLY why feminists and anti-gamers are so hard to take seriously

She's obviously over 40, and therefore will never understand gamers or games. There, see, I can wave stupid generalisations around too! Being a stupid sexist bitch doesn't help either. Ah, insults are much nicer when you don't pull them out of your arse.

Heres to all the intelligent 30 something gamers, guys and girls alike. Rock on, you crazy kids.
