Saw a glimpse of tubgirl over my little brother's shoulder when he was looking at 300 macros. There were some really funny ones in there to :(

Some homophobic (and likely closet case) classmate of mine shoved meatspin on a laptop in my face. Meatspin is pretty much just LOL PENIS, it's not disturbing like the other ones.

Avoid shock sites isn't hard, it's just like avoiding malware etc.

Basically what Jacque is trying to say with this thread is that I don't have geek cred. (Yes, I AM the gf he is speaking of, and I'm not even going to bother making that joke about him having another one I don't know about because if he did, I would make him feel bad*)

Don't let him fool you. I am more of a geek than he is. I'm the one that told him what modulo was. I am the one that uses linux (albeit irregularly). I haven't seen the gross websites because I know exactly what they are and I don't want to subject myself to that. I'm not even curious. Why would I be?

I also don't find any of this stuff entertaining, shock value is not humor, it's just shock value. Anyway, that's another rant for another day, and I'm operating on three hours of sleep and I'm afraid of being incoherent or offending someone when I haven't meant to.

BTW, I still love Jacque, even if he (wrongly) thinks he's got more cred.

I do, too. In fact, I was writing some ridiculously mundane "how to use powerpoint 2007" presentation for some training at work, and I rickroll'd the "how to insert video".

I like the song, and the video is just HILARIOUS. I can't find an original-rip MP3 anywhere, though :(

On a side note, all the demo materials (for the ENTIRE Office '07 training package) for working with images are cat macros, and all the screenshots either include a cat macro, or have something to do with cats. "I HAS A FETHER" shows up a lot.

Teh internetz culture

Postby GCM » Thu Oct 30, 2008 9:59 pm UTC

I've just realised: I don't know as much about the internet as I thought I did.

For example, I never heard of lolcats until Randall mentioned it just recently...

I'm also not sure what those MSPaint edits of photos with angry eyes and teeth are supposed to be called. I also have no idea what 4chan is, besides some Japanese site thingy...

What other Internet terms and thingys haven't I seen before? Go ahead, chuck stuff at me. And if you yourself are not sure, this would be great to get help from.

Also, what does "Sudo" mean? I never got that.

IMMA CHARGIN MAH LAZER!

4chan is not a Japanese site thingy. That would be 2chan. 4chan is... 4chan.

sudo is a *nix command to run programs as a user with higher authority. Basically, you log in as a user, then use sudo to do things only the administrator (you) can do. More or less. Someone else can probably explain it better.

to answer your question "sudo" (as far as I know, I use windows) allows you to act as root on linux machines (I probably explained badly, but you get the basic idea.

and just going through http://www.icanhascheezburger.com will not only familiarize you with lolcats, but several other memes as well, such as "the orange ones are poison!", and though it may be strictly limited to ICHC, ceiling cat is God.

Lolcats are very tightly connected to 4chan, you should read some articles on wikipedia about it... It will really help understand a lot of jokes in the internet ;)
Sudo is a command in linux, letting you execute another command with root (administrator) privileges.
For what I've learned so far, the best way of understanding XKCD better is to learn a lot about the history of the Internet, as Randall uses an amazing lot of allusions to it....

but we must remember, Longcat is the good twin, Tacgnol is the evil twin. and they are intimately involved with their related deities.

edit: well that was interesting, I managed to hit "reply" before the merge and "submit" after, causing this computer severe confusion.

Um, just a quick listdown for me:
Shocks-
Meatspin
Goatse
Mudfall
The one that you use to get to by searching 'foamy' on Google images, the bottom left one of foamy the squirrel, but when you clicked 'Show full size pic' it was like Goatse, but at higher res.
4Chan

Other-
YTMND
ICHC
XKCD
Newgrounds
Deviantart
Smosh
And, nostalgia, kinda... Miniclip!

Lemon Demon / Trapezoid stuff-
Potterpuppetpals (I feel so awesome when I hear people discovering this about 2 years after I did)
The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

Wow, I feel really good about myself, I recognize all of that list but smosh. Wait...is that really something to be proud of? I think this stuff really started for me when I was on some medical website that specialized in really disfiguring diseases and saw harlequin ichthyosis. Some that the thread hasn't mentioned:
-motorcycle.jpg
-Porsche girl
-"crush" videos (it involves some decidedly non-lulzy cats)

That's about all I've got.

I've very, very carefully avoided shock sites until a friend (years back) sent me a link to goatse.cx.

Now, this was the kind of friend that you learn very early on not to trust. He's a good guy, but you don't take his word on anything. I sounded out the site name phonetically (goat sex...) and adamantly refused to go, despite his claims that it was, "A site about goat emails" or something.

I've caught a few glimpses of most, though. More than enough to satisfy the incredibly curiosity I've had to endure.

In fact, the other day I was in the room with a few friends who were watching Pain Olympics, but there was this spot on the floor that was just so interesting. I examined this spot on the floor while everyone else watched the movie, though I was subjected to the audio and their commentary.

"Oooh... and the knife!" has become a sort of in-joke amongst my friends, causing me to cringe whenever I hear it.

I got tricked into seeing tub girl by a friend of mine who wasn't that great with computers. Later that week, to get back at him, I broke into his house, set his desktop background to tubgirl, and locked it. He got so pissed, but couldn't change it, so he just got used to it. Eventually, I had to explain to his GF (who left him for a day) that it wasn't him who put it there...


I was also tied to a chair and made to watch some online compilation video of penile mutilation. It ended, and I sat there shocked for about 30 seconds, not moving, till I broke the rope, and proceded to kicking the shit out of the 4 BIG guys who had put me there in the first place.

Most of these I've heard of not seen due to my common sense outweighing my curiousity in the field of disgusting internet videos.

The only thing I can think of that no one has mentioned is Charlie the Unicorn. I want to stab the person that showed that to me. Most annoying video ever. And now everytime I listen to "Charlie Horse" by Great Big Sea, that video starts going through my head...

I never understood what was so disgusting about Goatse. I got the movie a few months ago (it's 1MB, about a minute), and it's fine.

Maybe I'm just screwed up in the head, I dunno.

Well the guy who is Goatse is actually a gay porn star. I read an article on it a while ago, apparantly he was ID'd by the dimples on his ass.

How, and where, I found an article on the Goatse guy I don't, and don't want to, remember.

You misunderstand. He's referring to Robo's theme (which sounds eerily similar to Never Gonna Give You Up, at least the background parts).

Look up "Roboroll" on Youtube if you don't believe me, it features a concurrent playing of both tunes.

I agree with a lot of what's been posted easier (though I stay away from Tubgirl and the like if I can at all help it), I do have to add, Chacaron. That's the song from one of the YTMNDs with Adam West Batman, to those of you who haven't heard it in it's incomprehensible entirety.

Also, this is a relative newcomer, but Powerthirst. YOU'LL WIN AT EVERYTHING FOREVER! If it isn't an initiation now, I imagine it will be eventually.

Shock sites are almost exclusively the territory of pre-2005-aged hackers (Defcon definition, meaning "modifier-of-things" and occasionally "security professional", as opposed to the pop-definition of "computer criminal" or the 2008 Interbutts definition of "irritating prat who think they're good at life"), gamers, and generally computer-oriented crowds.

Personally, I credit these sites with forcing these groups to develop proper browsing habits and techniques (you'll find the lowest usage rates of security/safety tools among the pre-2005 technorati), making us realize that the Internet is REALLY a place where anything can happen, making us realize that politics DO influence the Internet (see: goatse.cx domain), and forcing the desensitization that allows these groups to not murder everyone that thinks Google owns the internet, and that Myspace is actually really cool, along with the callousness to act in their own self-interest at the expense of the newcomers.

*fires up Meatspin and listens to that jammin' loop*

The true Internet Rite of Passage is not any specific meme (or as we called them back when the Internet was still cool, "trends") or group of memes. It's simply the process of transitioning from being a casual internet user to being an accepted member of a Technorati-affiliated culture.

Tentacle hentai usually has the tentacles as disembodied or with the source off-screen. Furry would be if the tentacles belonged to an anthropomorphous animal of some kind. It's a fine line, but it's a line nonetheless.

No. Yes. There is. You haven't searched it out?

Just concentrating on the sex-furries, in the artwork and costuming and such you rarely see (I haven't seen it, at least) a normal human banging a vaguely humanoid creature. It's almost always a recognizably humanoid creature-thing banging another recognizably humanoid creature-thing. It's not people wanting to be animals, it's people wanting to be Bugs Bunny. (Yes, I made a huge list of huge generalizations there.)

Tentacle porn, on the other hand, while it can depict the creature owning the tentacles, and while the tentacle-ee victim (as it's usually tentacoo wape) is usually human, the creature owning the tentacles is not important. Sometimes it's essentially disembodied tentacles and the person they're... tentacling.

Now, going back to Furries, while people can argue that the ones with the reptiles, insects, and so on bend aren't really furries as they're enjoying something that by definition has no fur, if you're defining Furry as "One who enjoys depictions of anthromorphic creatures" then they would qualify. It works for casual conversation as a shorthand to refer to the bunch of them - from people who like talking cartoon animals to people who like to dress up in suits and play with each other's junk - but the moment you start breaking it down to the subgroups, it kinda falls apart.

It's best to just run with the definition of "Furries are people who like anthromorphic animals" and leave it at that.

Ahh, SecondTalon. You never let me down.

Anyway, people seem to bash furries for no good reason. Most of the time, they don't mind just being left alone. Though at the same time, it seems that a lot of them are really too sensitive to it.

Also, the face thingy I was talking about; I don't know if it qualifies as a meme of sorts, but it's definitely an internet thing. See My United States of Piker, which I found on ubercharged.net originally. Warning: the former has some shonky quality. Not bad, but questionable.
