I thought when he said " they come from all over the world, there are 26 or 27..." I thought he was going to say ..."people who still play the game."

Nonetheless I`m still a fan of their hand held game version. EX red, blue, gold, crystal. Those rock

I`m betting his "dad" adopted him and is also a virgin.
Kid= dedication and a passion for something
Dad= WTF? and a little support, but mainly WTF?

You can tell this kid feels embarrassed by his dad which is funny since he should be embarrassed already for not having a purposeful life. Anywho, I love how proud the dad is, he definitely just wanted to be in the shot and get some film time because he was all up in there trying to answer some of he questions.

considering more than half the people on IAB probably play MMORPGs, i don`t think many can really pass judgement on the kid. Anyway, at least he`s travelling!

@ Zerocyde

Would you like to elaborate on that? Maybe have a fun little debate? Seems a pointless flame unless you have something backing it up. :-)

Kaleo,

I think I understand now what you meant. You`re saying, if you had called people MBs, the act of that would make you yourself an MB. And that would make you a hypocrite. But you`re not an MB so you didn`t call people MBs, so you`re not a hypocrite.

That makes more sense.

I had originally read it as, "I`m not a hypocrite, because I did not reveal my miserable bitchiness. However, truth be told I am an MB and had I called someone the same, my hypocrisy would be revealed." In which case, regardless of your revelation or not, you would be an MB.

But I see the error in my interpretation now, my apologies.

Is it the card game or the video game that he is the champion of?

Also he`s lucky to have a really nice, and supportive father.

"Therefore, your original statement of "I am not a miserable bitch" would be untrue."

uncleduck, your logic is good, but you essentially proved my point over again. The last part after the "Therefore" is incorrect even following your own logic.
If I had gone off on a tangent and started calling everyone MB`s and then reprimanded them for those same actions, then I would be a MB and a hypocrite.

But as it stands I did not call anyone a MB and I still made a point that the people can be negative.
I am not a negative person, and it pains me to see other people being negative solely based on a one sided perspective of another.

And to be honest, I come here for the arguments sometimes.(but mostly for the laughs) It feeds the side of me that likes to have a healthy debate once in a while. I could never be 100% serious on here, because it`s the internet for one, and because being overly serious would ruin my cheery disposition. ;-)

Kaleotara,

You said, "...at least I know that I am not a miserable bitch..."

Then you said, "If I had called someone a miserable bitch, then yes, I would be a hypocrite."

If by calling someone a miserable bitch makes you a hypocrite, then it follows that you are a miserable bitch. Otherwise, calling someone an MB would not make you a hypocrite. It matters not if you actually call someone an MB, because you yourself say that such an act would make you a hypocrite.

Therefore, your original statement of "I am not a miserable bitch" would be untrue.

By the way, I`m not calling you a miserable bitch. I`m happy for him too, but this is not I-Am-Serious so I won`t always refrain from such comments as, "he`s never getting laid." It`s a joke, not miserable negativity, and I expect many others are doing the same.

Now I`m the hypocrite. (Why so serious?)

Ah, but PsychGeek I never called anyone a miserable bitch, I just said I would know I am not one.

There lies the fine line between hypocrisy and true principles. If I had called someone a miserable bitch, then yes, I would be a hypocrite.

BTW, you will never see me make comments harshly to others(except Pmarren, but that`s self explanatory.)on this website. Sometimes I generalize my comments to make people think about things,but I generalize them in the form of a question that anyone can ask themselves. I may comment on negativity when I see it, but that is because it is so abundant, that one cannot help themselves sometimes. :-)

So with that being said, I have just one more thing to say.

Mannord, thank you. ;-)

So much negativity with you people. I expect no less then the harshest comments because someone is doing something that makes them happy.

Sure he might not be getting any action now, but in a few more years maybe he will grow up and get a real job and be a man. Hell he might even put on some muscle. Who knows.

Can all of you honestly say that you were the perfect model of awesome when you were young? I doubt that.
How many of you are happy with your life right now and what you are doing? Hmmm?

At least he is happy with his achievement and he has every right to be happy with it. It may not be my cup of tea, but at least I wouldn`t be horribly negative about someone else finding happiness in it. At least he is good at something.

You can flame me all you want for defending the guy, but at least I know that I am not a miserable bitch who only cares about making fun of others.

I see others have mentioned it already, but seriously, what the yellow rubbery f*ck happens to champ`s face at 2:29? All my instinctive fears of people who play Pokemon are confirmed in those few seconds.

If I was somehow bunking up with this guy, I wouldn`t sleep a wink, for fear of the inevitable axe blow to my face.

p.s. feiku, you`re really turned on by this hunk o` stuff? Wee baby Jesus in the manger, I guess it takes all types.

Is there strategy to Pokemon? Well, I know there`s some, but no more than two 3rd graders playing in the cafeteria need.

I think the people who made it were more interested in selling toys than creating a strategic game.

"Its hard to believe a fat slob could be champion at anything."

It`s hard to imagine the champion of Pokemon NOT being a fat slob, I`m kinda surprised it`s not a 35 year old fat slob still living in his mother`s basement.
