So this is the age we live in -- Maine state Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz is an avid World of Warcraft player, and she's catching all kinds of hell for it from her Republican opponents.

A contestant on the UK game show World Series of Dating, known as "Nervous Marcus" by the show's hosts, surprised everyone when he and his blind date hit it off over World of Warcraft.
She shyly confesses that she plays WoW, and then he drops the bomb that he used to be in one of the game's top guilds, Method.
Marcus: "Are you, like, 85?"
His date: "Obviously."
Ladies love gnome rogues. Who knew?
