 Post subject: July 7, 2008: My five last hours in WoW

I stumbled upon on old interview where Matticus had posed a question:

Let’s hypothetically assume Blizzard goes out of business and decides to shut down their servers and WoW for good. You have 5 hours before the server shutdown is permanent. What would you do in 5 hours?

That inspired me to write this post:
http://pinkpigtailinn.blogspot.com/2008/06/my-last-five-hours-in-wow.html

Apperently a few more thought the question was interesting and wrote posts of their own:

35 yards out

Gnomeageddon

Automatgica

Maybe some more bloggers would like to join making it a shared topic?

Here is mine. It is a little more depressing now that I read it again.

Yea, but they got the premise wrong. They said Matticus was originally asked this question... Matticus asked this question to Phaelia in an interview.

And they didn't even credit Larisa for bringing the question back! Hehe...

I think a lot of us already figured out WI doesn't really follow the norm of WoW blogging. :twisted: Good thing we have BA.
