There’s no crying in StarCraft!
The crying man above didn’t just watch that “Futurama” episode (you know which one). He’s 23-year-old Nicol Tan, who waited in line twenty-five and a half hours to be the first person in Singapore to buy StarCraft II. He’ll also have to contend with opponents on Battle.net’s VoIP calling him “Nicole” from now on.
Tan wasn’t the only huge fan who showed up; there were an estimated 10,000 people in line behind him. No, really. Upon seeing him crying, the second guy in line, who had been waiting twenty-five and one quarter hours while wearing a Zerg costume, was overheard saying, “What the hell have I done with my life?” before throwing down his can of Mountain Dew in disgust and lumbering slowly away, making the unmistakable sound of vinyl-clad thighs rubbing together. Why he was speaking English and drinking Mountain Dew in Singapore, we may never know.
