I tried editing articles once. Then I decided I was better suited to hanging around comments sections being pretentious at people.
Gay waitress tipping isn’t cool, guys. While it is true gay waitresses sleep standing up, that’s no reason to push them over – it can cause stress and serious injury, and you’re sick if you find that funny.
I have got this right, haven’t I?
From votes in the hundreds to suddenly overtaking the front runners? (sighs) You can call me bitter if you want but, but if you just think about it for a second, this implies that a sudden spontaneous horde of Brent Rambo and twerking fans, who hadn’t been on the site for all the rest of the time the poll’s been up, have just randomly rocked up in the last day or so, and all at the same time. That, to me, doesn’t sound very likely. Which is to say, we’ve almost certainly been hacked.
You’ll get nothing from me!
…because birth defects caused by centuries of inbreeding are OK if they make us laugh!
“What, people hate the work that made me famous because it was autotuned drivel and I’m talentless? Maybe I can make money out of this hate by making more autotuned drivel making fun of it! I may be talentless and without integrity, but at least I’m (dons hipster glasses) IRONIC!”
Few of those a re a bit controversial – I prefer PCs (though only on grounds of price; so long as the machine runs the programs I want it to run with a minimum of faf, I care very little what operating system it uses) but I certainly wouldn’t say they BEAT macs; generally Macs are for people who want to make a statement about how hip and artsy they are, in my experience, and there are quite a lot of those around.
Also, you forgot Pewdiepie fanboys.
Seems legit to me – bacon has an entry, after all. Also, “Known for its sweet taste, its tendency to melt in a hot environment and its all-round delicious nature” next to a picture of a bar of chocolate, with a kym logo somewhere discrete would make a spectacular t-shirt.
Yes, I’m not cool.
Surprises me that Walker has picked up so much more attention in interwebz culture than Mandela has. Regardless…
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.
