@alicenwondrlnd origin story:

From a Swedish perspective World of Warcraft is not just "The New Golf", we would call it the "New Finnish Sauna". For those of you unfamiliar with the Sauna traditions, it means getting naked into a very hot room, stay there as long as possible before rushing out and throw yourself into a lake of ice and snow. And then get back in there with a clear mind ready for some new heat. The saying in Sweden is that all important decisions are made in the sauna. For obvious reasons mixed saunas aren't that popular amongst women. And for some reason gaming isn't either. But to avoid another "saunaclub", I guess one has to get inspired by the best playing female golfer in the world, , Annika Sörenstam - and begin learn to play, The World of Warcraft, inspiring title isn't?
