look up any word, like dirty brownie:
An MMORPG created by Blizzard Entertainment (Now Activision Blizzard), a fun game that friends across the world can play together, regardless of how many miles between them.

Often blamed for causing social defunction, this game gets looked upon negatively. However, this is simply a crutch so as not to place blame on the person who cannot control his own impulses.
"Me and my friends in Iraq can still play WoW together, even though he is 14,000 miles away."

1. A mysterious spell known as World of Warcraft in the form of a video game that is cast upon unsuspecting people and it slowly sucks away your soul and any social life you previously had. You ditch all your real life friends for new in-game friends and instead of planning to hang out with friends on the weekend you plan game sessions with other geeky victims to this soul-sucking game. Eventually your lifeless corpse is no longer part of the real world and you sit at your computer all day in a dimly lit basement doing the only thing you still know how to do, which is play WoW.

Common side effects of WoW include teaching yourself to self-feed off darkness and cutting a hole in your chair to place a basket under it so that you no longer have to take bathroom breaks.

2. What your response should be when your friend turns down an opportunity to hang out in favor of playing WoW.

Friend 1: "Hey want to hang out today?"
Friend 2: "No I have a planned gaming session to go play WoW."
Friend 1: "Wow."

The vast abyss of hopelessness which means your ass is permenantley glued to a computer.
Signs that people will play WoW: You will not see them for periods of up to 72 hours at a time. They will smell worse than your grandparents barn. The only thing in their room is a computer and 200 bottles filled with urine. They will only talk about WoW at school or other social gatherings in which they go to, and those are rare.
When you go to your friend's house and he immediatly shows you the new expantion pack of WoW that he has just recently bought and is already 3/4 of the way through, smells like shit, and there are numerous bottles of urine in his room, you can expect never to see him outside again.

Woolworths is translated at wow except for the case of nerds who assume wow is an acronym for World of Warcraft.
