I logged into WoW today (oh, I'm waaaay back into the addiction), on the sixth anniversary of the game's release, and remembered back to when I logged on that first day, way back then. Log queues for over-capacity realms, frequent server crashes... ah, those were the days.
Then it hit me... 6 years? Even at the rate I went through college (I was on the 5 year plan) I have been visiting Azeroth longer than I visited UCSB. So I tweeted:
"Jesus. I just realized I've been playing WoW longer than I was in college."
