Hahaha, I love this!
I have seen some good examples on this forum too. The 'examples' the author has used (apparently not real ones, otherwise I wouldn't be able to speak right now or wouldn't be able to type this, LOL) are hilarious.

Thanks for posting. :D

Come on now, everybody knows that the article spontaneously combusted out of thin air. Of course I meant generated. Why would I have said combusted? Well actually if you look at the 17th and 23rd definitions respectively, you'll see those two words actually mean the same thing, so I knew what I was doing all along. QED! :pi:

Pfft... Amatures.

When asserting one's importance on ze intrawebz, one must trample over the fragile self-worths of all those computer cuffed pimple faces by placing one's self importance at a level where others can't reach.

Ergo I once again quote the guide of my mentor... The Street Wise Professor:

It seems to me that many of you noobs need to learn a little of my world-class assertiveness. I assure you, before you ask, my assertiveness truely IS world class. No, I don't have to prove it! You'll take my word for it, and you'll like it! Thus, I'm going to give you a quick crash course in the art of primadonnahood. Which is a word because I SAID so. When we're done here, you'll all be able to give Borfase and I run for our self-centered money. Or you'll at least THINK so. WE'LL know the truth. Remember, I'm presenting these rules in the first person, so you can follow in my glorious footsteps. Try to keep up.


Rule# 1. I'M number one.

When you're the greatest thing on the planet, reminding yourself how awesome you are
is seldom necessary. But, I do it anyway. One of the best ways to do this is by keeping a large selection of quality pictures of myself at the ready, for my own enjoyment, and that of my millions of loyal fans. I keep similar photos in my wallet, where lesser folk keep pictures of their familiy and loved ones. Sure, I have family, but my primary function is to inform others of my awesomeness. I will not be deterred.

Note: That last pic is an excellent example of my uniqueness and courage. No one's going to tell me the proper way to ride a plastic seahorse! You're not the boss of SwP!!

Rule #2 Use of Third Person

This is similar to the royal WE. The main distinction is that there IS NO WE. There is only ME. Deal. The premise is thus: When one speaks in third person, one maintains an appropriate distance from others, allowing one to dispense wisdom and judgement from on high.

Examples:

Random Person: "I like peanut butter."

SwP: "The SwP isn't down with that action. He DISLIKES peanut butter.."

Note: The SwP actually DOES like peanut butter. He just didn't want to allow a normal person to think that they had something in COMMON with him. It's all about image, people!

Rule #3 There's no such thing as too much positive feedback.

This rule is important. Positive feedback is how we know when we're doing a good enough job of imposing our awesomeness on others. An average day for a good prima donna involves at least four different people becoming wildly excited to see you through the course of the day. In IRC, this manifests itself in long exclamation point strings. One can measure one's importance based on the lenght of the string. I'd like to note here, taht the SwP rarely achieves fewer than 10 points for each of his strings. Uh-HUH. You heard the SwP. Aspire to be like me.

I'm going to truncate this post, so that you lot may absorb what you can, without risk of mental meltdown, or ego eruption. Remember, working to my level of greatness requires baby steps. And the ability to run away from those who can't comprehend my greatness. Because nothing hurts those closeup glamour shots like black eyes, and swollen lips. :P

This is really funny. :vlol: Arguing on the internet is like bringing a knife to a gun fight. A friend of mine gets into huge, heated "arguments" on YouTube... It's the stupidest thing. I will never understand the appeal.

What's really worrying is that "winning" is the primary objective of the discussion.

I often hide the comments when viewing a video on there, I haven't got time for vitriolic arguments ...

Indeed :(
