I tried editing articles once. Then I decided I was better suited to hanging around comments sections being pretentious at people.
Well yes she did have a big influence on global news, quite probably one of the year’s biggest. But then she’d have had a big influence on the news if she’d sung a series of catchy pop songs that implicitly denied the holocaust. ‘Biggest influence on the year’s news’ is a silly reason for voting someone Person of the Year.
I for one rather like doge. Obviously it’s been a bit overdone, but some instances have been quite creative, and I find the idea of a perpetually amazed shibe really rather charming. It gets my vote, and you haters can just keep right on hating.
As you can probably guess, /o/’s exploded over this. There must be about eight different threads open on him as I write; maybe more.
All I know about these things is that they feature in Doug Walkers least favourite movie of all time. And having seen the review, that’s pretty well all I want to know.

It’s not your generation, kid. Westbrook, I’d imagine, is just another starry-eyed girl thinking this’ll give her a shot at stardom without any real awareness of the need for talent or practice, and we’ve had those since there’s BEEN stardom.
Nar, I blame Patrice Wilson for putting these outrages together and creating a platform that lets them be seen.
Thing is with a lot of stuff it wouldn’t matter if I had. If I’d tried to claim my own ever-untidy bedroom was any sort of art, even if it was before Emin did, people would have called me a pretentious moron. Why? Because I’m not Emin!
The trouble we have is that at the moment a work is considered to pick up artistic merit by deliberately challenging the definition of art, meaning that something can become art when someone points out that it is not art because that challenges people to think about what art means, which means that everything is fundamentally art which renders the definition of art meaningless. It’s self destructive.
Werepire? Is that, like, only a vampire at the full moon? I guess that’d stop the sunlight thing from being an issue, at least.
The problem I have with Dawkins in particular is that he appears to be precisely as close-minded as those he criticises. Yes, God probably doesn’t exist, but that doesn’t by necessity make religion evil, and yet he won’t hear any opinion otherwise, and if anyone even tries to defend religion as a concept they’re ignorant and hate science.
If you wanna see someone championing atheism in a positive way, go check out Stephen Fry’s actions on the subject.
‘How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren’t real’… I guess he could be saying ‘how can we see mirrors if we have no eyes’, but the answer is ‘we don’t know, so it’s reasonable to assume we do have eyes unless evidence appears to the contrary’. I’m guessing he’s getting at some kind of Descartes-esque, Matrix-y ‘what if the world we see isn’t the real world’, like ‘if what I see isn’t real, my reflection is inaccurate’, or some such, but it’s just coming out as a pair of unconnected premises – the existences of mirrors is not in any way, so far as I can see, contingent upon the existence of my eyes.

Sorry for the buzzkill, chaps. Well, OK, unless there’s some meaning here I’ve completely missed in which case, feel free to ridicule me.
These guys are all fairly well know, but c’mon, no NerdCubed? No TotalBiscuit? No Pewdiepie? Fuck, even the Achievement Hunter crew aren’t on here! This article’s missing loads of big names!
Why did they-
(pauses for breath) Family guy’s been going downhill for a while now, but
If this is permanent, it is quite possibly the most bizarre, nonsensical, jarring move for a series to make since the introduction of Scrappy Doo. Even if the entirely incoherent nature of the Family guy universe allows him to be brought back, it’s still a real cynical dick move to increase viewing figures without increasing creastivity. Poor show. Poor show indeed.
She might – MIGHT – have been poisoned, I guess; it’s not completely impossible. But if she was, why the hell should it have been the Illuminati as opposed to, I dunno, some crackpot stalker fan or someone she regularly associates with who she managed to upset in a big way somehow or other or someone with a moral objection to some role she’s played or, heck, just some nut? Or, you know, like, the murder arose from one of the many kinds of situation from which murders tend to arise? Or am I just being blinded by THE MAN here?
Crudely drawn? These are a hell of a lot better than anything I could ever come up with. Hll, I’d be proud if I could draw like any of these!

Not sure a lone video can be a meme with this little spread, even if it has gone relatively viral. I say +1 store in ‘that weird part of Youtube’ until further notice.
Hey, if British mothers, God-botherers and cartoon pony enthusiasts all get forums, I don’t see why bodybuilders shouldn’t have them too. Surprises me that they’ve come to play this level of role in meme culture, though.
Reminds me of a local council outreach thingy a while back: some councillor or other was talking to a group of kids of age 11 or 12 about how cities could be expanded sustainably. One kid suggested that if we force everyone to live underground it would prevent expansion into the green belt so protecting the environment. Happily he was talked down, only not on grounds of gross breach of personal freedom or even the excessive cost of such a measure, but because of potential harm to badgers…
It’s shock humour. We don’t laugh because rape’s in any way a laughing matter; we laugh because we know it isn’t.
Well, some of them are pretty foul, but then some just read like a female oriented forever alone, and a few of them (only sexual harassment/if he’s ugly) probably belong on one of those anti-feminist propaganda macros. Could this apparent lack of understanding be because women are less well versed in web culture because of its inherent “tits or GTFO” sexism, or is this meme being used as a kind of catch all because there are very few advice animals that comment ton women in a non harsh way (see idiot nerd girl, overly attached girlfriend and the afore mentioned anti-feminism)? Could this stereotype-breaking frog be introducing women to meme culture with a character they can finally identify with, letting them throw down the forced dollishness and established gender roles of real life and throw themselves with cloaks of anonymity into an internet which, by judging everyone, judges no-one, allowing women, finally, to cease being women and become human beings?
Funny to think how creepypasta used to mean “NOW YOU’VE STARTED YOU CAN’T STOP READING there was this girl and she DIED a HORRIBLE DEATH and then someone moved to the house where she used to live and SO DID THEY and she will KILL YOU TOO if you don’t post this in ten other videos but if you do you will kiss your true love in exactly ten days’ time!!!!!”
Has the internet actually become more classy for a change?
A nightmarish, abandoned holiday destination containing terrible perversions of its former inhabitants and various forms of half-unexplained biological and chemical horror as well as a general air of utter anger and lost hope towards those who created it on behalf of those who died there?
I was hoping to head over to Nate Clark’s blog and find him hilarious; that would’ve been poetic justice right there. Shame he isn’t, particularly. I mean, he’s not bad; his stuff’s pretty original but naaaah, I just couldn’t get into it. Which is a shame.
