Stupidity not America-only trait

Australian minister says gamers are scarier than bikers. Because those gamer bars are such terrifying places. Why, you go into one of them, and you see all these pale geeks with huge bulging mouse-clicker muscles hanging around ready to, err, frag you. In a virtual world. In real world, speak harshly to them and they might piss their pants.

Seems to me that South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson is going to have some up close and personal encounters with irate outlaw motorcycle gang members real soon now. Because calling a bunch of hairy malcontent outlaw bikers accustomed to getting into fights in bars and who would sooner knife you than say hello less scary than a bunch of computer geeks with all the muscle tone of a bowl of jello whose sole weapon is a mouse clicker can't be flattering to the hairy malcontents...

Or maybe the jello-muscled geeks actually are scarier than the hairy violent outlaw bikers. In some universe. In some universe where unicorns are real, and fragging can be accomplished merely by shouting Lightning bolt! at the top of your lungs...

  1. Well, that bikers would have to actually read something, or listen to a news report. Atkinson might be safe.

    Part 2: a cat in a girffe hat is still a cat.


  2. Well, they might play a news report on the television over the bar in a biker bar, but I guess you're right, Atkinson isn't in quite as much danger as I thought. At least not from bikers. Those LARP'ers yelling "Lightning bolt!", on the other hand... oooh, scary!
