Is it just a strange coincidence that all emergency room doctors manually sign their name at the bottom of each message?
I do have a fun story to share.
A couple of weeks ago I was online in Halo 2. None of my friends were online, so I just started playing random matchmade games looking for quality people to start a party with. Finally, after four or five frustrating losses on some terrible teams, I managed to find one guy who seemed solid. Good communication, worked together well, so I invited him and we started playing together.
Probably played together for at least two hours, about an hour and a half in one of my regular friends came online and joined the party. One of the games was really laggy, and with a couple of really ignorant Americans who noticed my gamertag and immediately started making stupid comments about Canadians. Unfortunately, due to the lag, I was about as useful as a one-button mouse, and the ignorant morons wouldn't stop yelling and shouting at us. Eventually the game ended, and back in the lobby my regular friend told us he'd be right back, just as I complained about the ignorance you see on Xbox Live sometimes.
The other guy, the guy I'd met, said to me, "yeah, today I was actually accused of being a racist! Me." He definitely seemed like an upstanding guy, we'd had at least a couple good conversations up to this point. So I asked him how somebody with his moral fibre could possibly be accused of that.
He replied, "because I was robbing this chick, and she was Puerto Rican! She said I was only robbing her because she was Puerto Rican. I said no, I'm robbing you because you're in a convenience store! And she started freaking out on me saying that I was some kind of racist. Can you belive that?" And he laughed. And he was completely serious.
And right at that moment, my friend came back, and I was powerless to tell him what had just transpired. I started freaking out on IRC, "OH MY GOD THE GUY I'M PLAYING WITH JUST ADMITTED TO COMMITTING ARMED ROBBERY" and such. And of course, within minutes, my unknowing friend was inviting the guy to be a member of our clan, too.
That was an interesting night of gaming, to say the least.
