Welcome back Order Mage, and I am glad to see that in all these years of changing times, at least the average sense of your topics has stayed the same.

I feel at home like I haven't felt since Summer '03... ah, the days...

What's the point of spelling it Rawr? I've never understood this.

The subject of this topic is so fascinating and deep that thinking about it has dumbfounded me.

The different spelling obviously implies different pronunciation, and thus different meaning.
The "Roar" is a majestic loud rendering roaring that instills fear.
The "Rawr" is a cuter version of Roaring, generally used by females in a prideful, taunting manner.

:D
Yay for making things up on the spot!

All the kids on myspace tend to think that dinosaurs go "Rawwwr" and Guns go "Bang Bang". Oh and that robots go "Boop Beep Boop".

It's just so intellectual!

Then again, all the kids on MySpace also think that if they don't repost that chain bulletin, some evil person will show up and murder them when they get tucked into bed that night.

I just had the most amazing revelation.

Dinosaurs go "Rawwwr"...

Guns go "Bang Bang".

And Robots... robots go "Boop Beep Boop"...

I've seen the same thing happen on FaceBook, and among my relatives. It's sad... and I wonder how many of them actually believe them.

Heck, last time I got a chain letter from a friend, I wrote them back asking "You're kidding, right?"

EDIT: OM, have you gone by different names in the past? I think I remember you, but I can't place the name...

The last time I got a real chain letter I tore it into pieces. Strangely enough it was one of the best weeks of my life and nothing happened afterwards. I do get tons of chain letters by email, but even when I do like them I still don't forward them just for the fact that they are chain letters.

Edit: true

Electronic chain letters, on the other hand, are far more annoying because they don't provide any material suited to release one's anger at receiving it. Clicking the delete button is notably less satisfying than tearing the letter into a thousand tiny pieces. :P

Hm... perhaps that's why a stubborn few continue to mass-forward them. In lieu of a traditional anger release, they feel the need inflict the offending spam on others. Or maybe they're just stupid.

This is parallel to the same supposed reason why very religious or moralistic people tend to be so judgemental toward everyone else. They themselves are miserable inflicting themselves with unkeepable and perhaps unnatural laws, so the most gratifying and justifying thing to do is seek to inflict those same miserable rules on anyone else they can. Misery loves company.

I got a chain letter the other day. It was a petition to abolish bonsai kittens. Some Japaniese dude would put a kitten in a box when its bones weren't fully grown, then confine the kitten for its lifespan. Is supposed to make a great toddler's toy.

A friend of ours wrote something about this once...
Ironically enough, it's on MySpace.

My personal favorite chain letters are the ones that go something like this: "OMG HURY AN SEND THIS TO EVERYONE!!!11 Or YOU'RE EMAIL'LL GET DETETED". Typos and grammatical errors added for entertainment purposes.

Ironically a couple weeks ago I sent my friends, who use myspace, a letter saying that people were using it to rape and murder people. A few days after that myspace hits the news after some girl goes off to meet some guy she met on myspace.

Print it. Or better yet, put it in some sort of writing program, add things like "yes, I certainly am very stupid", then print it. Proceed to reduce the newly-printed chain letter into tiny pieces. Although you're tearing your own paper.

Anyway, Welcome back, Order Mage!

Personally, I prefer the good old-fashioned method of ripping the 'delete' key off of your keyboard, standing about 3 feet from your computer, and bodily throwing every heavy object avaliable at the monitor until the chain letter somehow gets wiped off the screen. The only problem is, often you can only do this once.

EDIT: Typos make the world go round. It's currently 1:21 AM here and I'm supposed to be writing an essay. Coherent speech decided to stay somewhere back at the title.

I recently got a chain letter that was *****ing about chain letters. I've still got it in a folder somwhere, I'll find it and post it.

Basically, it was written by someone who wanted to see their own chain letter to go around.

Roar and rawr are just two different English onomotopoeatic expressions. Roar's vowels are pronounced as in 'boat,' a deep 'oh' sound. Rawr's vowels are pronounced more like 'march,' a much lighter 'ah' sound. As to the origins of 'rawr' I think I know who invented the expression. I firmly believe that 'twas I. Prior to playing games such as Age of Empires online, I'd never heard the expression. In 1997, I used the expression as a typo in a game, and it caught on and stuck. ^__^
