Magic: Gathering is a trading card game first put onto stores shelves in 1993. It's foundational mechanics went on to inspire many other games, Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh currently being the most famous. It also invented the prospect of tournaments for trading card games, which did not exist at the time.
Magic is a worldwide phenomenon, and has developed it's own list of dozens of slang words. Magic itself is typically known as Magic: The Gathering, MTG, or just Magic for players who play it more exclusively than other games for which the word “magic” could easily be confused.
More players play magic today than ever before, showing a clear upward trend in popularity over the last 10 years. Reports by Hasbro, the parent company of MTG, put the figure at “around 6 million” in 75 countries in 2003, while current(2016) unprofessional estimates are at anywhere from 8-15 million globally.
The game was invented by Richard Garfield with the financial support of WotC, the latter now owning the game in it's entirety and the former currently receiving royalties. Despite his lack of direct control over the game since the late 90s, Richard Garfield still contributes to the game sporadically, and is considered by many to be a pillar of the community and is known by Magic players internationally.
The game is known best for it's simplest mechanics by those who've never played it, these principle mechanics being 5 colors and resource building involving “lands” and “non-lands”.
Magic: The Gathering is a game like any other. The company prints things on cardboard and it turns into money. Might as well cut out the middle man and print money.
Person A: Magic The Gathering Players are fat vrigins.
Person B: Did you know that the player base of Magic: The Gathering in the United States has a 10% lower rate on obesity than the national average? How about we talk about issues that matter instead?
Fact Deprivation Disorder(FDD) is disorder commonly found among sheltered first world peoples, typically, but not exclusively, from ages 12-30. The disorder is characterized as having a world view so saturated by safe-space circle jerking, poorly researched statistics, confirmation bias, over-reliance on media, and over-used meaningless rhetoric, that it never occurs to them in the slightest that their entire world view is built upon fallacies and an utter lack of basic facts or truth.
Behaviors caused by FDD are often demonstrated in the form of horrifying lack of understanding any group characterized by hereditary traits that does not match their group, excessive use of the Fundamental Attribution Error, Illusions of Grandeur that cause them to feel that they can speak for entire sections of the populace based on only their own feelings, and an over-abundance of Victim Mentality and/or a Persecution Complex.
FDD is infrequently a precursor to actual mental health illnesses, such as complexes mentioned above, Mass Hysteria, Gender Dysphoria, and even full-blown Schizophrenia such as the famous case of Lena Kochman. However, in the process of deciphering FDD, those with the disorder are so unreasonable and entitled that it is incredibly difficult to distinguish them from mentally ill peoples that desperately need medical treatment or psychological therapy.
Continually using the same statistic over and over again instead of making a point, regardless of whether or not the statistic is accurate, and continually repeating the same rhetoric is a flag that the speaker may be suffering from Fact Deprivation Disorder. Another flag is outright hostility to anyone who enters their safe space while not meeting the standards the FDD suffers set for it.
1. A specific form of language and word formation used almost exclusively in texting and internet discussions. Text speech is comprised of everyday American English that has been heavily fragmented and shortened. Typical text speech has a number techniques in it's use, including:
-inserting numbers of equivalent pronunciation, e.g. 2 = to,
-abbreviations, e.g. appt = appointment,
-famous acronyms such as LOL, FTW, WTF, IMHO, etc.
Making words from symbols, like the following, is not considered text speech.
1|= y()u (4|\| r3@d 7#5, y0|_| /\r3 @ IVI0/\/$+3|2 &33|<
While the general purpose of text speech is to make conversations as short and easy as possible, in some rare cases it can develop such a specific dialect that it's impossible for those who encouter it for the first time to decipher it without help.
2. 'Text speech' could also be used to mean that fucking annoying habit some people have when they phonetically pronounce text acronyms during a normal phone conversation.
