Sometimes in the future it

Sometimes in the future it will be mandatory for everyone to play WoW whenever they are not sleeping, eating or goin to the bathroom. Blizzard will then make enough money to feed and cloth the world, and we will have world peace.

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We've been doing so much with so little for so long, we are now capable of doing anything with nothing.
