World of WarCraft. A subscription based massive multiplayer online role playing game released by Blizzard in November 2004. It is currently the largest of its kind in the world with over five million subscribers world wide (over one million in the United States). After level 60, there is very little you can accomplish unless you schedule time to play daily. Many have fallen into the trap of playing this game, and needing to get that next piece of “1337” gear to impress “n00bs” in Ironforge.

In order to become powerful enough to dominate everyone in PvP combat without trying, you need to collect the most powerful raiding armor sets. This usually requires large guilds composed of mostly high school and college students/dropouts or fat unemployed people in their 40’s cursing and complaining and making gay references over Ventrilo or Teamspeak. There is often a point system, and a lot of drama involved in gaining gear. These guilds are rarely managed by anyone with any real marketable management skill.

Long term exposure to this game has hazardous side effects to ones life. Before you know it, your friend base starts shrinking. Your wife/girlfriend leaves. You become bitter, and play the game even more to escape while popping down your Prozac with lukewarm Mountain Dew. You had four jobs with periods of unemployment in the past year, and you live in your parents basement while posting up generalized, uncited, bias, unproven generalized and opinionated rants on some message board bitching about how something is out of balance. The few friends you have left (who all also play WoW) at your community college (which you have been in for 6 years only to stay on your parents insurance plan) use terms like DPS in real life conversations.

Most can greatly improve their life situation by quitting the game. It’s not so much of what the game does, but rather what it prevents you from doing while playing. Once liberated from WoW, those extra 30-120 hours a week can be put to productive use.
Yeah, Joe used to be the star quarterback. He also had a hot girlfriend, and a academic scholarship to Harvard. Now, he is in his mid 20’s still living at home always playing WoW. Almost never hear from him anymore.

Whip 'em out Wednesday. Game of it's own played in the NYC area on that day. Driving on the freeways, watching big-tittied women whip out those bigguns is WAY more fun than stupid-ass video game . War blows anyway. Give it a rest!

"Wisdom Of Weed" your knowledge of weed in general.
W.O.W is knowing different kinds of weed , what it does to you, knowledge of how you can use the weed, different type of ways to get high off of weed, how to grow it, how to distribute, knowing what different categories the weed lies under (ex. Mids), how long it lasts, etc.

The reason a man doesn't have a girlfriend....

An acronym for World Of Warcraft. aka World Of Warcrack because of
its addictive nature.

A game that can help people who play it claim they work very hard... devoting more than 8 hours a day to something. A GAME...

Extreme gamers love it. Then they lose their friends and their girlfriends because it severly injures their libido. Interest in making love. Sensual feelings. And limits the time they even spend looking off the screen and at the real world.
<girlfriend> I am going to dump you if you play wow.
<wow boy> I promise I wont play games anymore.
2 months later..
<wow boy> i have super 1337 laptop on the way doo.
<other wowboy> lawlocaust. does your girlfriend know?
<wow boy> yeah.. efff her.
<girlfriend> sure hope wow can suck you off.
