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!

TF2, Starcraft 2, Borderlands 2, Star Conflict, Guns of Icarus and more. Find me on Steam, same name there as here.

90’s gaming will always live on in my heart

Ponies, Homestuck, gaming and Carl Sagan. If you hate those, too bad. But I’m cool with other fandoms.
Carl Sagan is best pony

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 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:

RD is athro, but twilight is not. That’s kinda odd. You don’t usually expect both in the same picture

@Platus

Ponies don’t wear clothes unless it’s for sexy poses. So she actually just recently put them on and will add more clothes later.

We can see that she is in the process of putting on a bow tie.

Commented on Twins the Serendipitous Serval's wall

So I’m reading through it, finding the rare time to follow the story in between Starcraft and programming sessions.

I feel like I keep picking the worst options. Straight off the bat I underwhelm Shizune with poor Risk tactics and frighten away Hanako with an awkward trainwreck of an introduction.

Then right after that I had to give my opinion if Hanako was cute or not. What a dick move. If I say no, I’m a superficial judgemental prick. If I say yes, I’m an overly-sympathetic white-knighter. I said yes.

But despite these setbacks I march forward. It’s a different test of skill, not one of combat tactics and aim but social adept

Commented on Dimensional Crossroads

Sorry but a single in-joke at Gamefaqs is not an internet meme. At the very least that qualifies it as an event.

First of all regard that a meme is defined by spread. Therefore meme’s are recognized throughout entire internet circles, not just select websites. You don’t make it clear if any other communities make a lot of reference to it.

Secondly it doesn’t look like he incident really started anything. It’s just something that happened in Gamefaqs history and that’s the definition of an event. Memes are not just “something that occurred at some point”, they go well beyond that into their own language form

To spare this from the deadpool you need to give us:

1: Evidence of major response to the event across news hubs

2: Evidence provided of original content produced by the incident

3: Evidence of mutation and meme integration of original content

4: Evidence of continued referencing/interest towards the event across numerous locations

Commented on Dragons Having Sex with Cars

@Azurai

It hasn’t gone anywhere at all. After 3 years, hardly anything has developed

It trends because trolls bump it just to watch your reaction

The only reason this isn’t deadpooled is because this article is so legendary. Seriously, this article is up there with SuperRoboJesus. It never fails to bring in the LULZ

Commented on Save Derpy

@Mirror

I’ve seen people express that they hated how Derpy was originally portrayed in the show (not to the point of complaining mind you) but that’s it. I have never seen anyone express dislike for her character.

In fact nobody even referred to her as “handicapped/disabled” up until that point. She’s just a regular goofy character. She was never regarded as an icon for disabilities by the fandom.

Commented on Todd Akin's Sexual Assault Gaffe

@Paradoxed

I know its frustrating when people disagree with you without explaining why they disagree. I have no respect for people who do that.

However it’s probably for the best since the alternative is tedious debates that clutter this comment section with irrelevant bullshit and annoy people who don’t care and want to stay on topic of the meme itself. Glad to see you understand.


If anyone else wants to debate abortion, take it to the forum and start a topic in General or something. Anywhere is better than here.

Commented on Cracked

I’d say KYM has taken plenty of notice of Cracked before, considering we tend to cite it as a source for meme examples quite often!

So yea, that may be worth noting: Perhaps one of the things that make Cracked so relevant in internet culture and memes is how amazingly aware Cracked is of them.

Cracked is very on top of trends on both IRL and internet events and documents them with it’s class of humor. It does this well enough to end up in the “related links” section of many KYM articles

Memes also tend to get used throughout Cracked, especially in their photoplasty events. Now I don’t know if Cracked has ever created any memes (I don’t think it has) so I can’t help you there, but you can say that, like Reddit and 4chan; Cracked plays its part in meme propagation through its journalism, expression of ideas and huge userbase

It’s trending again because ZIL bumped it, and also because you guys continued posting here asking why it is trending.


@ZIL

But to answer your question, yes there was evidence that actual disabled persons were offended however I cannot be bothered digging that up for you right now

Commented on Todd Akin's Sexual Assault Gaffe

@Paradoxed

Perhaps more to the point: Nobody really want’s to argue over abortion here. This is a KYM article, not a courtroom and we don’t come here to have to deal with these frustrating ethical matters. We just want to laugh at funny internet events.

I’d wager that half of your downvotes are coming from pro-abortionists who think it’s wrong to view a fetus as a human being and the the other half are coming from people who are just sick of seeing these debates appear and want them to stop because they are pointless and retarded on both sides.

TheRussBuss may be both of those, that’s why he doesn’t want to argue with you whether or not he has an actual counter-argument. Just drop it buddy.

So that explains those weird chubby cat-ponies I saw in the MLP gallery. They were Pusheen-ified ponies. I wondered what those were a reference to.

Also another fine article brought to you by Amanda.B; our resident cat expert.
