When I was making fun of Dan...I mean, telling heartfelt stories about him to my sister, she asked what WOW was. She has never heard of World of Warcraft, which doesn't necessarily mean that she lives in a cave. It just means that she is not married to a geek. So here is a thorough description for those of you who have never heard of it. (Which would be weird because I make fun of it a lot.)

Basically, you play a little monster and you run around and kill other little monsters to gain experience points. And then when you reach certain levels, you can try to kill bigger little monsters. Sometimes the bigger little monster is so powerful, you need to gather other little monster friends and join a raid in order to successfully kill the bigger little monster. If you win, the bigger little monster will drop powerful little monster weapons and tools. He only drops one of a certain kind at a time, so if there is more than one little monster in your group who wants the weapon, you have to kill many bigger little monsters as a group a few times in order to get everyone what they want. And it seems to require that you wear a headset and swear to show off your manliness. Mostly because you can't get the little monsters to puff out their chests and swagger.
