LA and Azeroth: Same reaction to a little rain.

Dear Citizens of Los Angeles and Citizens of Azeroth,

It has come to my attention that it has started raining in your neck of the woods. I know this because of the inordinate amount of recent media coverage about your weather. For example:

MTV with "...A Storm on 'World of Warcraft"

KABC TV with "SoCal Braces for Three Days of Rain"

Congratulations, you got some rain. Excuse me... but "Whoop-dee-freak'n-doo!"

Look, I don't know if you've noticed, but it also rains in other parts of the world. It rains in Portland and Memphis, it rains in Norrath and Vana'diel. Get over yourself.

Rain is nothing new or unique. It will neither ruin or enhance your life in any significant way (unless you stupidly live on a hill in LA, you poor poor bastard). So let's suck it up and stop making a big fuss out of it. Then the media guys can move on to something more important. Like this incredibly important journalistic piece about what it's like to be a booth babe(via Kotaku).

Yes, that tangy smell in the air is sarcasm. I accidentally spilled a bunch all over this post and club soda is not doing a dang thing! =)
