Why do people play Osu? Is it because of its blistering yet rewarding difficulty curve, rhythmic ecstasy, great community, or "fun"?
No.
There is only one reason why people play Osu: to show their superior ability in clicking imaginary circles on a plastic screen.

But, we all know that you're the best -- that you could totally get #1 on the rankings, that the only reason someone beat you in multiplayer was because it was an unfair challenge. You were at a clear disadvantage, and you'd wipe the floor with these idiots if you wanted to.

Here is a partial list of the things that contributed to your temporary failure. Use them, and request a rematch!

1. Lag.
2. Dialup.
3. My mouse ran out of batteries.
4. My dog tripped over the wires and unplugged something.
5. Bad karma.
6. I forgot to deal with Fung Shui and now my Chi flow is blocked.
7. Lag.
8. Too many Red Bulls.
9. Alcohol.
10. Drugs.
11. Premarital sex.
12. Lag.
13. It's Friday the Thirteenth.
14. Bad vibes, bro.
15. Those damn kids and their rap music.
16. The Jews/blacks/whites/Asians/Mexicans/Spanish/other minority
17. The Christians/Jews/Buddhists/Muslims/athiests/scientologists/other religion
18. Robots
19. Hacks
20. Lag.
21. My mom/dad/sister/brother/aunt/dog/fish/Siamese twin took me out of THE ZONE
22. Menopause.
23. PMS.
24. The Black Plague.
25. Onset of Lou Gehrig's disease
26. Cancer/AIDS/other terminal illness
27. You Zergling rushed me.
28. Someone is calllllllling.
29. My alternate personality played the last game, not me.
30. The hobbits took the precious.
31. My hot pocket is done.
32. I was just testing you.

Feel free to add to the list.

My computer glitched and locked up fora second (happens to me occasionally actually)
I'm getting used to MY TABLET HEY GUYS DID I MENTION I USE A TABLET FOR THIS GAME, THAT'S RIGHT I DON'T USE A MOUSE, I USE A TABLET
My hand is sore.
This mouse isn't the mouse I usually play with.
The beatspacing sucks.

45. Xfire update.
46. I realised just how insignificant we are when compared to the rest of the universe, I mean, if I was to slit my throat RIGHT NOW, what difference would it make? WHAT DIFFERENCE WOULD IT MAKE?!
47. I realised how I was wasting my life on the computer all day. So I left, grabbed an apple, and shouted "HELLO WORLD! IT'S BEEN A WHILE!", then I lolled, and had to go tell people about it on IRC, but I was too lazy to get back up, so I went back to playing osu.
