Defense of the Ancients, what an unbelievable match that was. The Defense of the Ancients. What an unbelievable. I mean, it was so much and so interesting and so vicious and horrible and so beautiful in so many different ways. It, it represented such a big portion of the success of Valve. Defense of the Ancients, wow.

I go to Defense of the Ancients, Dota, to look and to watch. And, uh, the statement of Terr R. Blade, who's no longer in favor. Did you ever notice that? No longer in favor. "Never fight uphill, me boys. Never fight uphill."

They were fighting uphill.

He said, "Wow, that was a big mistake."

He lost is great mid. And, uh, they were fighting. 

"Never fight uphill, me boys!" But it was too late.

On this week's SPECIAL FRIDAY release, we learn all about many things that we want to learn about, I am sure. Zac's power went out the next day, it is very sad for him. What is the worth of a life? Unknowable. What is the worth of a life without meaning? Nothing. If your death can give meaning to others, do you not feel a responsibility to give up your "nothing" for another's "something?" If a proud knight takes up a blade of divinity only to forsake those they mean to protect, should they not fall on it? What is something worth if it cannot function as it intends?  May your blood nourish the earth that cradled you. The sword can only "give" in this way. Perhaps another can meet the measure of their own charge. Or perhaps not. [Dark-Souls-NPC-Laugh.ogg]
