World of Warcraft players can't get laid even when they pay for it

There's something fishy about this story:

Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father's existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing "Halo" on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.

The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.

The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.


Asked why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.

It seems like a century ago, but I vaguely recall that at age 13, I would have given my eye teeth to be in this situation (not that I recommend paying people for sex). But I also recall that I used to stammer and sweat like a pig if I thought a girl was even looking at me.

Of course, I wasn't the suave and debonair lady killer I am now. And we didn't have Xbox, but we did have Atari.

Sounds to me what we needed was a CREDIT CARD! Just imagine if every 13 year-old had one!

Substitute D and D for WoW and I don't believe times have changed all that much. :)

"Dungeonmaster" is synonymous with "pasty white male virgin."
