WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE!? Please post on my wall and introduce yourself. If I don’t really know you or talk to you, I will not friend you. If you are still just embarrassingly sitting in my follow list then it is because I have no idea who you are and I find it awkward. If you seek to change that then socialize!
Some guy who codes websites and
drinks excessivelyis a now a recovering former alcoholic
DnB, Trance, Dubstep and a bit of House. Favorites include BSE, SoM, Pendulum, The Upbeats, Shapeshifter and Seba.
Metal is fine too. Don’t mind Rammstien, Disturbed or System of a Down.
I am a bass addict. No bass, not interested
I’m a trained PHP web developer. I’m all about the code.
I started the famous trend of themed profiles when I discovered a way to inject my own CSS and Jquery into my profile….but then people abused that and now you can’t do it anymore. Dumbasses
I browse KYM because its a fast way to follow what’s happening in internet culture. Net culture fascinates me and how differently it works compared to every other culture in the world despite being part of every other culture in the world. Plus I like the discussions we have here
I like sci-fi. But not the “UFO blows up New York” crap, I mean real sci-fi such as Star Trek, Stargate, Aliens, Predator…you know all that stuff from before Hollywood ran out of ideas. Then again the internet is pretty much my TV nowadays. The following summarizes my modern TV experience:
Obligatory profile music
This has absolutely nothing to do with pirates, but who cares. UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ
I see some people disagreed with my last post
We know. It’s pretty likely that Hostess products will be sold to another brand so there won’t be that much casualty. But it’s more fun to joke about it.
You are assuming this has anything to do with the elections. Actually it doesn’t despite what the headlines has led us to believe
Check the discussion thread and read what actual Texans have to say. It goes deeper than that.
This phrase has been in use for several decades from millions of different sources. I’m pretty sure nobody can really claim to have started it. Certainly not OP.
Since it didn’t spawn from the net, it’s no more a meme than the term: “cool”.
PS: Inb4 hundreds of “OP IS FAG” image macro’s
I dunno, I still don’t think this beats the time Pizza was declared as a vegetable. That was an astronomical level of stupidity that makes even secession sound smart
@Your new god
Because a controversy involving Rihanna brought it into the spotlight
CRACKED SENT ME HERE
Well actually I was always here, I’m just pointing out that Cracked.com used this page as a reference in a recent article
The “Theory” seems to be getting more attention.
As if we all just woke up one morning and collectively decided to make Gak a meme? Yea…no
Why do idiots assume that Bronies planned this whole thing?
Guys, you don’t need to be so hostile.
We need to see some examples of usage. Post proof of people using the phrase it and show us where.
Yes, and I was referring to all those rustled people too, you included.
I’m glad this is classified an event. I’d say that this is a good example of one.
It’s a one-off moment that happened in a single day, but that single moment took the internet by storm, news of it spread far and rustled the jimmies of thousands. It looks like it will continue rustling jimmies for days to come.
Of course it’s not a meme but it is something that happened which spread memetically and has a decisive impact like any other meme. All the butthurt comments here prove this. (People keep forgetting that getting trolled by something carries memetic potential)
But as with any event, I still assert it will be forgotten by the internet in a week (4 days left now). Although despite that, it will be a debacle the Bronies will remember
Why thank you Cherilee, I just adore this girly frou-frou. I look ABSOLUTELY DARLING! Is this your own stitching?
Post on the forum, then you might see me more ;)
I guess if they don’t have a nudity taboo, they don’t have a group shower taboo either.
Sorry dude, Xzibit already got inb4’ed. Nice try though.
And yea, Deadpooling on KYM is not a meme unless other locations start using the exact same term in the same context. At this point it’s merely a catchphrase that’s specific to this site.
I don’t think I have seen you in a while. Yea I’m still using the same old theme.
But if people request a different theme, I might relent and make a new one.
@Password is Taco
Who’s supporting this? Yesterday it was just a Brony in-joke. Now it’s the new Arrow to the Knee and all I see are people constantly bitching about it.
And you aren’t so important that the whole fandom would set this up just to bother you. Especially when it bothers the fandom itself. It doesn’t take a conspiracy to stir hysteria on the internet you know
Thank you for making sense
I predicted a massive backlash of Gak hate which would directly follow all the commotion and popularity made about it yesterday.
Anything that gets unwarranted fame like this always receives an equal and opposite recoil of anti-fame
Looks like the hate train has now arrived right on time (Another chance to study the behavioral traits of the internet). But I expect this to be forgotten by the end of the week.
You are feeding the trolls by calling them out and ranting over their actions (mass downvoting). In fact, anything you do feeds them.
Here’s a hint: They mass downvote purely to make you (yes _you _) rant and scream insults at them for doing it. And you did exactly that in your previous comments.
They’ll surely come back and do it again in the hopes that you maintain your act. It entertains them greatly
I admire Carls deep outlook on existence and his fascination of space. I’m more than happy to see this confirmed
Looking at Youtube comments, you would think people are getting dumber, not smarter
But the theory makes perfect sense: There are a lot of things you can learn which you wouldn’t learn otherwise thanks to Youtube. Specifically, it allows you to learn the things you actually want to know. University courses often put you through courses that aren’t relevant to what you want to do, even if you choose your courses carefully, or they can skip questions you may find more important to yourself.
Courses are tailored to the masses, not the induvidual. But the induvidual can still google specific things they are passionate about learning and surely find a Youtube tutorial for it.
There are also some places where the internet can reach but education cannot. In those places, Youtube could very well be improving the quality of education for those seeking it.
As mentioned in the video, it’s all about accessibility of education. The easier it is for society to access information; the smarter it can get.
This makes me so glad I was born this century. My future is going to be awesome
The Aku line at the bottom is gold
Ah, just saw your explanation of Semmelweis. Thanks for that, I’ll take your word for it
I didn’t google Semmelweis. I actually waited patiently for your expert take on the matter…so yea, hand over the left appendix please. Unless your intestines are not oriented to the left, in which case I’ll take your right appendix. (inb4, you had your appendix removed already)
