Hi KYM. I’ve started out the entry for Vertical Comics. It is used quite frequently online and there are even generators for these. But I’m having difficulties tracing the origins and spread of verticals. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
like my AMA suddenly decided to become Zombie Jesus
technically I’m an Earthling. that’s as far as I care.
nope, just one
I do. And I’m not from Greece I’m from Cyprus. But still…

my name. or at least part of it
apart from politicians struggling to find a solution, life’s pretty normal actually.
yes, I am a coder. I program in several languages, but I mostly do Java. I mostly like working on web applications that involve other website APIs (KYM included) although I’m starting to learn a bit of mobile development. My favourite websites besides KYM? Reddit (of course), YouTube (mostly for my daily dose of music and funny content), Facebook (for my daily dose of ‘who gives a s**t’ content) and StackOverflow (for coding).
What is the most fun thing you’ve done this week? Went to a winter festival with friends. great fun What’s your favorite rage face? If you could plan the best dinner ever, what would it consist of? pork chops, bulgar wheat with tomato sauce and german wine
No idea Tomberry. I was actually not from Greece, I’m from Cyprus. But I live in UK for now (work) but as I heard, it’s hanging OK. Greece on the other hand, sounds horrible

my intentions were to learn about memes. the first thing that drew me to the site was Jamie Dubs’ video on Rickroll. Before that I thought Rickroll started on YouTube (the April Fool’s joke). But then I said, “wait a minute”. After watching a few more episodes, I decided to give KYM a try. And I instantly loved it
My love for rage comics. But the reason I became a “rage comicologist” is mostly due to the Rage Comics entry I started and largely wrote a few months back. I saw my meme entries getting better and better (since they started being frontpaged more often) and this was no exception.
I’m jumping on the AMA bandwagon. So here it goes: I am entry moderator and recently declared “rage comicologist”, Sav. Ask me anything!
