Any readers in the audience who have played through the Draenei starting area (and you should -- it's a fun zone) must remember the Tree's Company
quest, in which you are asked to disguise yourself as a tree in order to overhear a secret meeting. Well, while there's no suggestion that World of Warcraft
was involved, this weekend a man in Manchester, New Hampshire robbed a bank while disguised as a tree
. (He made off with less than $1000 and was later caught.) Obviously, the tree disguise idea doesn't work nearly as well in real life as it did in the game -- as you can see in the security footage to the right, the disguise just isn't working.
