I enjoyed meeting you nerds so much at Blizzcon... I might just throw my own independent yearly soiree here in Memphis, TN.

I'm going to gauge on how seriously to plan this based off of the initial response I get here.

Many of you wonderful nerds I've known for years and surely enjoy our text based banter with much relish. A couple days a year would be pretty awesome. Properly planned it could be cost effective and enjoyable for all.

Just an idea... lets see what happens?

Memphis kicks !@# sir. IF you don't get mugged, shot, kidnapped, car-jacked, killed and/or some other horrible thing that can happen here.

I'd give everyone waypoints that could be navigated via GPS. Folks would be fine.

Think of it like a raid into a dungeon IRL. Much better than blizzcon. Better music... better food... some deep south stuff.

Far too many colored folk down that way, ya dig? Have it in a more ethnically cleansed area and I'm totally down.

Dude there is nothing wrong with anyone's color here. I would shepherd all of you people around certain cultural and socioeconomic areas of curiosity that have resulted in rather dangerous surroundings.

I wouldn't want any of my nerdie homies to get ganked irl.

However, if this did occur, we might have to form a raid and get some vindication. Can you imagine the impact of 40 random nerds from a variety of places from a variety of backgrounds suddenly storming an area of town hacked off cuz one of their number got mugged? We'd all binge on redbull and then go fourth. Hopefully no fatties die of a heart attack during the ensuing activity.

Irl raids [riot] need to occur more frequently with a different demographic involved [nerds from all walks and colors of life] getting hacked off at something [perhaps PIPA or SOPA?] and go burn some $hit.

Beale St. was awesome. Stopped in Memphis on my way to Knoxville.

Bar carts on the street! Random blues and bands along the street! Decent cops!

No nothing like that my dear Zzaap. Just a fun time spent amongst kindred sorts. Those of us who play this game shouldn't take for granted particular personality traits and backgrounds which we have common bonds through. As a demographic gamers are still in their infancy. I'd rather share a drink with any of you instead of the common sports enthralled rabble one finds stumbling sputtering stupidities within the bounds of the conventional bar.

So, politics aside and any horrible things I've done to any of you also aside... lol. I really like this idea and wouldn't hearing who would be interested.

Beale st is a definite thought. I was thinking about the Blue Monkey specifically. I've haunted that place on occasion.

How do I know you're not just luring muslim gamers into an ambush?

I'd drop the greens for a plane ticket right now if this went down. What a joy it would be to put a face to all of these other toons while I finish my 13th beer.

Yeah. I want to but I doubt others are willing or able to drop that much green.

Zzaapp, Chuck Norris is only trying to turn out a favorable demographic's vote.

The other side of this polarized coin does it too.

Broad spectrum messages always taste a little bland within the minds of people who are slightly ahead of the curve.

Realize this message wasn't intended for you.
