I came across the WoW Detox website while googling for odd stuff. There you’ll find comments by all range of people who are advocating leaving wow and reclaiming their lives. On first look it seems ok and normal. But on closer inspection I think the website may be a really odd subtle hoax.
In the middle of the homepage now is a White-on-black text based powerpoint fade, which my itself might be just a bad video. But the content is saying that getting outside and not playing wow will help resolve MOST the world’s woes.
The GFC, World Hunger, Poverty, Endless Wars, Global Warming can be resolved by wow players quitting and running around IRL.
Its a challenge to yourself…
OK, maybe not an insane proposition….until you also add to the this the fact they used the Terminator Judgement Day music as a back ground. That was when I started laughing.
…so we have an end of the world message, about the GFC, which targets the people who have already quit wow. Seriously, I do not understand how this is not a savage parody.
What will you do for you…?
The world needs people….
I don’t think the Onion could write better, more subtle satire than this. And the website creators might be serious.
So go outside people, don your tinfoil hat, click your heels together and turn around three times. It will have the same affect as anything else, but at least there is the chance that you live on a hill and the lightning storm will hit your dumb ass head, and near kill you. Then some nursing staff, doctors, and all sorts of professionals will have jobs caring for you, which are real jobs at least.
