At First I LOLed. . . Then I Serious'd

Maybe it's because I've been writing this online journal, this THUNDERJOURNAL, for over six years now. Maybe it's because I've been engaging in Internet discussions going back to America Online chat rooms. Maybe it's because I long ago decided that nothing on the Internet should be taken all that seriously. Maybe it's a combination of all that that's prompting me to sit back and wonder why the hell there are so many people who devote so much time and effort to comment boxes.

Every day, a fresh batch of Internet newbs discovers how to hit "Submit Comment," and the mind-numbing cycle begins anew. At some point, I have to believe the Internet is just going to grind to a halt and launch into space, like a SimCity 2000 arcology launch.

Except, I think the arcologies exploded rather than launched. I can't remember. Either way, it's apt.

How much do you hate me that I've got an old Mac set up for my kids that has SimCity 2000 on it right now? Oh yeah, feel the hate wash over you!

Actually, Erik, I LOVED SimCity 2000. I wasted many college nights playing that damned game.
