Wait, did our Dragon/Car thing hit the big time, or did it start somewhere else and migrate here?

I dunno, the dragon/car thing came with weclock, and who knows where he got it from.

As this NSFW Or Sanity exists, I think perhaps another GWJ meme has grown beyond these digital walls. Like Stengah said, it started around here with weclock, but he was the only person I ever heard of that was into such an extreme & extremely bizarre niche fantasy-- so I'm going with "It Started Here!"

He's a member I don't really miss at all. Saying your intention was to rape someone has a kind of chilling effect on open discourse.

Dragon/car was a Reddit thing brought over to here.

Back to that car though - if I were a dragon I think I would have unnatural impulses for it too. That's one fantastic looking machine.

Wasn't 4chan doing the whole meme thing before Reddit?

All Your Base didn't need Reddit, 4chan, Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook to become a meme... and neither did your mom

More or less those tend to be the places where they reach critical mass. The origin can come from anywhere, it just needs to be found and shared.

The image isn't saying Reddit created the concept of memes.

Yeah, I was there on Something Awful when that happened (AYB, not his mom).

The Zero Wing into animated gif had been around for a while, but how the meme started was a thread where the first post was a skeleton from Army of Darkness I think with a balloon quote saying "On the table!" The first response was a pic with a balloon quote "All your base are belong to us." It snowballed after that. The pics slowly got more sophisticated, fewer balloon quotes, more proper photoshop work. Many of the pics were grabbed and posted in other forums, and those people would do their own pics, and so on and so on. One of the SA guys was a (the?) member of The Laziest Men on Mars, which did a remix of music Zero Wing and added the dialog with a speech synthesizer.

After a while, Bad_CRC took a bunch of people's pics (without asking), combined them with TLMoM music (without asking), and put out the (in)famous flash video. Yeah, one of those pics was mine and I was improperly credited at the end as "Quitin". IMAGE(http://rps.net/QS/Images/Smilies/rolleyes.gif)

Actually, I'd never lurked Reddit when I brought it up. I had seen some horrible furry (scaly?) art of weclock's ilk, that can be found via a horrible, horrible GIS. Wish I could claim I'd come up with the concept originally, but at least I put it into your brains.

We've replaced this cat's scratching post with a Macbook Pro. Let's see the results.

My wife's MBP, our bed, and our cat. And the local Apple store fixed the keys for free. Just...annoying.

You're right--in fact, it's all 'shooped. Disappointing.

You expect people on the internet to read a book?

I plan on doing this to my wife. I may need to crash at carrotpanic's place for a few days afterwards.

They both have at least two more things they could be pointing with each

Having read Cyanide and Happiness, I'm surprised they aren't...

But they already are pointing with their noses....
