roffle
they're right though, there are like 10 holes in that story. also the first one came from somethingawful forums, second one posted on a virgin flickr acct, durrrr

sleep (sleep), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 15:20 (twelve years ago) link

I think whichever poster made the point that "it's not real bowling, don't LET GO of it" has probably got the winning insight here. If you think about the bowling follow-through I can easily imagine how letting go of the remote at the normal time you'd let go of the bowling ball could pitch the controller right off your wrist with the strap loop slipping right off.

DOCTOR METH KING (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 15:24 (twelve years ago) link

But yeah never overestimate the stupidity of greedy lame internet fucktards

DOCTOR METH KING (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 15:27 (twelve years ago) link

yeah, pretty likely. either that, or they were twirling the fucking thing by the strap on their finger to make it GO FASTER FASTER YEAH

elmo argonaut (allocryptic), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 15:28 (twelve years ago) link

sure, but they used the slipped-out-of-my-sweaty-hands story, and supposedly the strap loop actually broke which i'd think would take away some of the force.

Oh Momus.

But if time really is money, why aren't we paying Chinese students and homeless people to play our video games for us too?

Welcome to the World of Warcraft, my cyclopean friend.

XPOST

Wow, I can't believe that one got by the Wired editors. Momus has fucking tunnel vision / horsey blinders on / a cognitive eyepatch and "grasps" whatever he's writing about without being sufficiently immersed in. See his posts on this thread: "I was otherwise very normal before I became 4 years old" I'm sure someone else can analyze why he likes to frame everything in the manner that makes the most sense to him.

roc u like a § (ex machina), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 16:56 (twelve years ago) link

American kids who think they "understand" Japanese culture because they love video games and anime

versus

Momus, who thinks he has a deep understanding of Japan (Berlin/britishes/americans) because he's Momus.

I'll give it a try. Momus is a bounded rational agent.

DOCTOR METH KING (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 17:11 (twelve years ago) link

zingamabob.

ANYWAY I don't really think that Momus article is worth discussing, he's just an old man complaining about the kids these days (again), just using a couple of recent articles about gadgets as the frame of reference (as old men who like to complain are wont to do when they are getting paid to grumble and bitch).

DOCTOR METH KING (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 17:15 (twelve years ago) link

no, momus isn't very interesting, but i will say this to cement jon's point above -- leave it to momus to explore the dubious 'ethics' of the air-guitar shirt without giving a single thought to the possible medical applications of the underlying technology. fucking idiot.

elmo argonaut (allocryptic), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 17:36 (twelve years ago) link

in other not-news, Bill O'Reilly and Momus apparently agree with each other.

DOCTOR METH KING (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 21 November 2006 17:42 (twelve years ago) link

What does Momus think about the OJ special?

I now have Zelda, Excite Truck and Red Steel.

But no Wii.

Yeah the Wii was the only thing that could rouse me at 7:30am. It's really cool so far though the network/web channels aren't implemented yet. We got Zelda and an extra controller. BOXING IS FUN! Mike beat me in every Wii Sport except baseball, which was 0-0 for three innings.

turbogirlwc8ko3.jpg (blastocyst), Thursday, 23 November 2006 02:31 (twelve years ago) link

bowling and tennis are probably the best multi player WII sports games. Although if we had the extra nunchuk controller, 1 on 1 boxing would be intense! oh and zelda was awesome until i turned into a goddamn wolf! what the fuck.

MICH4EL (WHADDAPPPPP), Thursday, 23 November 2006 05:15 (twelve years ago) link

Oh no, Link turns into a wolf in that one? My wolf-obsessed gamer friend is probably spanking it to that game right now.
