Here's an example of one of those things that illustrates the incredibly amazing age we live in, and an example of exactly the kind of humor that makes me smile to the core of my being.
It's a multiplayer flight simulator (Flight Simulator X) where people can take on different roles, including as pilots and air traffic controllers, without rules and governed only by their own love of the protocols of the real world jobs they are performing.
They play around with the real lingo and rules, and put their own psychotic little twists on things. LOVE IT.

In other words, it's like a bunch of young children playing "office" and making everything up as they go along.

  • Child who inevitably volunteers to be the "boss" and orders everyone around? Check.
  • Child who is eager to gain approval by obeying the "boss" who has no real authority over them? Check. ("Permission requested to taxi to gate to load cookies.")
  • Child who plays along while it suits them, but still wants to be the center of attention? Check. ("I'm going to put on a show for you. Play some cool music.")
  • Child who has no idea what they're doing but just wants to be a part of the social aspect of it? Check. ("I'm flying a Cessna.. uh.. it... uh... um... er...")
  • Child(ren) who completely ignore all semblance of rules and order and just do their own thing? Check, Double-Check, Triple-Check, etc..

;D :Thmbsup: :P
