One of the problems with a MMORPG like WoW is that some people often get consumed in the dynamic social and entertainment parts of the game, leaving off activities and events happening in the real world. This is problematic for a number of reasons, and is something that everyone who plays this game a lot should guard against happening to them.
And with that in mind, today I heartily recommend that you take a respite from our Azerothian domain and head over to the television to watch some of the presidential inauguration. No matter if you're a democrat or a republican or a whig, watching the historic swearing in of America's first African American commander-in-chief is something that you'll want to be able to tell your children and grandchildren about. The last thing you'll want to say was "I was playing WoW with all those cool 3.0.8 changes."
The looks you'll get from them will be one of bewilderment. Now if you're twisted like I am you might just want to say that anyways to amuse yourself, but still, it'll only be funny if it's not true.
So take a break from the game today. WoW will still be here when you get back (except the Mage class, that might get deleted, we'll keep you updated).
