What is the OFFICAL Know Your Meme response to lies propagated by certain sites?

Sep 13, 2010 at 12:22PM EDT

Molly, would you accept to go out with me sometimes ?
On a more serious note : Will there be recorded parts of the live feeds for those who can’t watch it live to enjoy it anyway ?

  1. What is your name?
  2. What is your quest?
  3. What is your favorite color?

Serious question – With the boom of Internet technology allowing virtually anyone to post a video, a blog, or anything else (child porn?), where do you see a line being drawn in what materials the Internet would consider “1337”? In other words, where do we as the Internet draw the line to prevent an over-saturation of unwarranted memes?

Chris Menning why does your hair look so epic?

Sep 13, 2010 at 03:28PM EDT

How do you find time to make episodes?

Sep 13, 2010 at 03:45PM EDT

alright, do you think it’s alright for mainstream media to use memes without consequence?

Sep 13, 2010 at 05:44PM EDT

Why is the rum gone?

And for serious: Many people above a certain age (for my purposes, I generally set it at 35 in the year 2010, but it more depends on the type of career they’ve chosen) don’t understand the influence of network technology in the world. What do you believe are some potential reasons for that?

Sep 13, 2010 at 05:58PM EDT

And the truth is finally out! This is gonna be an awesome special episode filled with blunders in every which manner and way!

As for a question, to get off on a less serious note as compared to some of the other question listed on here, I’d love to see what the staff members consider as their own individual favorite internet meme.

Sep 13, 2010 at 07:39PM EDT

I cant think of anything thats not already self explanatory.

Sep 13, 2010 at 07:54PM EDT

How did you guys get the idea to make KYM and what is it like working with each other?
Any behind the scene pranks or funny stories?

(random question) Who draws the pictures on the whiteboards?

About how much does it cost to keep this site up?
and about how much time does it take to complete an episode?

Sep 13, 2010 at 08:19PM EDT

Exactly how long do you have to stare at Weegee to become Weegee?

If you accidentally this live show, Wat do?

Sep 13, 2010 at 08:23PM EDT

Why am I jealous of the title scientist emeritus?

Sep 13, 2010 at 08:24PM EDT

Everyone in the live comment feed seems to not get that the show hasn’t started yet.
Is anyone else there?

Sep 13, 2010 at 08:49PM EDT

“did the server crash?”


Sep 13, 2010 at 08:51PM EDT

I got locked out of the chat because I got in through a glitch, what did he say?

Sep 13, 2010 at 08:58PM EDT

And on topic about the video, mine is lagging a lot. I hope it’s just me.
Edit: Nope, evidenced by karnella’s post below, it most definitely is not only me. I think there may be some technical difficulties in the broadcasting.

Sep 13, 2010 at 09:16PM EDT

Sep 13, 2010 at 09:29PM EDT

KYM team, I’ll let you finish but, the outro song is one of the greatest outro song of all time, ALL TIME.

That pose at the end was all kinds of epic :D

Thanks for doing the live show, guys. Laggy, but whatever.

Sep 13, 2010 at 10:00PM EDT

next time have a destroy-the-unworthy-ones button… I mean some sort of report-worthless-husk-of-a-12-year-old….
err… report user button…

Sep 13, 2010 at 10:02PM EDT
