It's part of the reason why I changed my name to Yog. I hated that asterisk.
Oh, it was trendy. On iEra, 2011, there was a thing going around that if you put "*" on the end of your name, it declared that you
were the original player using that name. I remember people used to use that as an argument:
Player 1: "I am the original Catz!"
Player 2: "No I am the original, I even have the '*' in my name!"
And then it was settled. No joke. Only the "pros" used it, since they had the advantage over being rightful when it came to a name argument, rather than new players who were seen as inferior and therefore didn't have the right to harness such names.
F*** needles. F*** smoke. F*** lines that make the sinus choke. F*** chasers and trails. F*** raves and rails. F*** hangovers. F*** hallucinations, regurgitations, mandatory sentences and UA tracing. Blind my insight and dull the common sense. Give me inhibition, kill the superstition and the confidence.
