What is M.O.R.O.N.? A new blog post series I just made up. ;)
M.O.R.O.N. stands for My Outstanding Rants On Numbskulls. Every month (usually on the 12th) I--or another member of the M.O.R.O.N. team--will post a rant/post/few comments about idiots. It can be a poem, a funny meme, a short post, or some other creative thing about idiots. Here are the members:
1. The Magic Violinist
Yup. I'm the only person. If you would like to join, please post a comment with your e-mail address (unless I already have it) and I will contact you.
Without further ado, I give you "The 10 Most Ridiculous Things I See In Minecraft!"
Minecraft is an awesome game! In fact, it's one of my favorite computer games (along with Webkinz and Wizard101). Unfortunately, most everyone on there is stupid. Seriously. I've yet to see someone who can capitalize their "I's" or can actually spell out the word "you." (And, seriously? You should know the difference between your and you're by now. Yeah, I'm looking at you, college kid)!
1. Bai and Hai
"Imma go to dinner." "Imma let my dog out." "Imma cool." I've seen all three of these things (and more!) on Minecraft. "Imma" means "I'm going to," apparently, though some have used it just to "sound cool" by typing things like "Imma love chocolate" or "Imma in love with Justin Bieber."
I'm just waiting for the day when someone says, "Imma idiot."
3. Excessive Swearing
Swearing is used, supposedly, to make a point. But when you use the "F" word five thousand times over about every little thing (whether it's a good thing or a bad thing), you really lose all of your power. I like what my parents have said about swearing:
"You should be able to express yourself well with the billions of different good words in the world before you go around using the small handful of bad ones."
4. DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!
"Obama's a Muslim." "Taylor Swift kissed Justin Bieber." "Gays use witchcraft." To that I say, "You obviously know nothing about our president," "No she didn't, otherwise she'd be in every entertainment magazine known to man," and "Stop being ridiculous."
Most people on Minecraft just want to play. That's why it was invented in the first place. For entertainment. We don't want to see the message, "OMG I JUST ATE THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE EVER" pop up on our screen twenty times while trying to build a house or kill a zombie. It's distracting, annoying, and rude.
6. "I'm bored."
You're bored?!?! Then get off the freaking computer and read a book or go outside! You know, there's this really cool thing that's been invented. You might not know about it yet, since you've apparently been on for the past forty-eight hours, but it's called 'nature.' There are other living things that are out there, and trees, and grass, and all sorts of other things just waiting to be discovered! We don't even know you, so why should we care that you're bored? If you want me to be your personal entertainer, I'd better be getting paid for this. I love this quote by Louis CK.
“I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.'”
These people just creep me out and usually end up getting banned for being inappropriate. I've seen guys try to get girls to go to the prom with them. I also saw a girl try to get a guy's phone number. One guy tried to get someone's address, and succeeded, might I add, because the girl thought the guy was "hot."
By the way, you can't see people on Minecraft. You get fake avatars!
8. Phone Numbers and Skype Usernames
People go around giving out phone numbers and Skype usernames all over the place! They obviously don't know anything about being safe on the internet. If I had written down every bit of personal information that I've seen on Minecraft, I could contact enough people to form my own private army. Well, maybe not that large, but I could probably contact a good few dozen people.
9. Putting In Your Two Cents . . . Or A Whole Dollar
You could make a fantastic point, have the most incredible idea, or have a world-changing plan and I wouldn't take you seriously if you didn't spell anything right. If you want to talk about your opinions, talk to your friends and family, or start a blog! That's part of the reason I love blogging. I can write about anything I want and if people care enough to read it, they will, but they don't have to. It's not being shoved in their face like it is on Minecraft. I absolutely love the servers where you can turn off public chatting so you can just play. That's why I play single player, too.
And for the last time: OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM.
10. "I really shouldn't be on here . . . but . . ."
"My mom grounded me for a month because I stayed up playing Minecraft instead of doing my homework, which means no more Minecraft for a month, but I got on, anyway." "My colage [sic] won't let me use the dorm wifi for video games, but they don't know. ;)" "I called into work sick so I could play Minecraft all day."
?!?!?!?! You know your boss, your college, and your mom can find all of this out, right? One screenshot or one click of the "show all history" button will cause you to lose your job, your computer privileges, and get you into some serious trouble with your college. Though, you spelled "college" wrong, so I'm not sure how much you care.
