O M F G !!!!!!!!!!!!

My friends... this is unbelievable

Ok here goes.

A few days/weeks ago, one of my friends sold his for $900 (AUS) to his guild leader !

and just now, i was told one of my friends has been interviewed by Today Tonight because of his WoW addiction which was worse than the previous kid they interviewed.
some like playing for 36 hours straight.
He's been given $500 for the interview and he's gonna sell his account for $400 to $500.


Can't believe it .

Since it's been bumped back up, I'll comment on my WoW experience

Played near continuously for the last few years (with a couple breaks), and I finally managed to quit about a month ago. I had a 60 paladin well into my tier 2 set, guild just got Nef on farm. Overall I had a great guild and honestly that's the only reason I stuck it out so long.

But I just got tired of the timesink. My old hobbies - like anime and FF style RPGs - were pretty much dead. I looked at my hours played and realized how much of my life I'd spent there and I got more than a little concerned. I was already getting sick of the continual raiding, grinding, just the sheer amount of time that everything took. With the expansion coming out it was going to make matters even worse, especially since all that gear I worked my ass for was going to be worthless pretty damned fast. I missed games that had an end. I decided to pull the plug. Now I've been getting back into my old pre-wow life and have been enjoying being an anime geek again immensely.

WoW really isn't that expensive though... $15 is hardly anything, especially compared to how expensive anime, manga, and normal video games are. Do none of you have jobs? Of course that may explain why I see so few gold stars next to anyone's name...

Well if you look under the usernames azrael910, you would notice that most of us aren't even out of high school. It's difficult to play WoW or donate to CR if you do not have a way of transfering money and if you do not have a job or parents who are willing to pay for a monthly paying hobby.

I almost made it through a 24 hour anime marathon... then they started showing bad 80s vintage anime and I passed out for a couple hours till they started playing better stuff.

I believe many banks require that you be 18 to set up a checking account, but savings accounts work just as well with Paypal

Only a very minor income from doing odd jobs hee and there.
i use most of it for gas money , so i can get to class.

Right now , i`m an unemployed independant student .

living in michigan doesnt help things , the cost of living is high, and we have the worst economy and highest unemployment rate in the united states.
