"Look, I know I'm smarter than a lot of people."
Followed by several paragraphs explaining what "fun" is. Okay. I would tend to think this was simply some satirical nonsense, but I know better: he honestly believes that tripe.
Good luck with your Dumbfuck Goals of Summer 2012.
Are you saying D&D should not be played *solely* for laughs? I can't think of anyone I played with, or anyone's whose blog or forum posts I've read, who does that. A game can be very funny and played partly for laughs and still have fear, pride, bravery, brilliance etc. too. So what I'm trying to say is, it sounds an awful like you are explaining a why a scarecrow plays D&D so stupidly and badly...
On the other hand my idea of fun can include fear, pride, etc. too so I guess I just don't get your point here. Are you defining 'fun' as the qualia we get from something that is 'funny'?!?

Shit, mike. Are you actually asking me if I used words I didn't actually use?
Because I think it's fairly obvious that if I didn't write the word "solely" in the fucking text, then your comment looks pretty fucking obtuse.

Hilarious. I must ask how this tool manages to coexist with humanity given its utter lack of comprehension of his vastly superior intellect.
