"The game-makers (and matchmakers) at online-game site Nexon tell me that of the 26,982 in-game marriages that have joyously occurred in a game called MapleStory, 20,344 have ended in divorce. Because I happen never to have played MapleStory, nor indeed even wondered what it is, I am grateful to Nexon for offering me correspondence with respect to the details of the world's next great social plight. "I was young, naive, and thought I had met 'the one'," declared one player from Vancouver. "She asked me what I wanted in MapleStory for my birthday, and I told her that the only thing I could ever want was for her to marry me." I feel virtual sniffles coming on. My shirt is becoming virtually damp. What could have possibly gone wrong?"

Not far off the real world divorce rate. So that would make my wife and I odd, because we've been married for 14 years ;) This should make a decent poll video.
