Cats and babies share a thought pattern. Whatever situation they’re currently in, they assume will be the basis for their existence forever. Whether hungry, or shut in a cupboard, they will wail because they believe this is what life is now, and everything they can’t currently see or experience is gone for all eternity. (Everyone puts babies in a cupboard sometimes.) This also describes me, in almost all my thinking, including with MMOs. If I’m not playing them, or constantly having their every cough and burp BELLOWED at me by the entire gaming press, then they might as well have been taken offline. In other news, there’s a Conan update.
