Exactly! I agree completely with this. Although anarchy follows close behind.
Yeah, I was kind of limiting my thinking to the electronic realm, but you are right of course. D&D started it all. Interesting to read about some of the mail based games that people have written about below. Never had the patience for that sort of thing, and I didn't think I would have the self control to handle any of the slick graphical based MMO's. So I have been MMO "sober" for at least ten years.
Exactly! I always thought of MUD's as the very first MMOs with UO and Everquest simply being graphical MUD's. But perhaps there was something even before the MUD's and MOO's that I am unaware of.
I use to have a serious addiction to a MUD called Phantazm. I still remember the sound of my modem connecting in and then connecting to Phantazm via telnet. I swear to god it was like a rush of heroin. Those were the days.
Arstechnica.com covered this same study the other day. Their writeup is better than mine would be so why don't you read their article? http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2010/03/does-high-fructose-corn-syrup-make-you-fatter.ars

I wish I could mod this up. Even though I think the op was obviously trolling. No one can be that stupid. It is unreasonable punishment, plain and simple, and proof that our justice system is for sale to the highest bidder.
There really is great power in the dark side of the force!
I am curious to find which one of us reading this has the lowest account number? I had a really low one but lost that account..
