That Morrissey thread is really awesome until it descends into an argument, which I participated in at the time.

Aside from "truth becomes self-evident", that thread also started "the internet is America" - Morrissey - a live nod to U2 at Glastonbury?

The lichtenbergstein thing looks pretty stupid, and incredibly unbelievable from the perspective of not being there at the time. The fake edge debacle does too, but it had the backing of the mods. sicy was a rather tyrannical mod of all mods at the time (btw, is she even still here?) who ran around telling people to move their conversations to AIM because this place discourages chat threads (oh how things have changed now), and she handed some "official" word down from Elvis saying this is the real edge and you should all be ashamed for doubting it. It was almost a little old testament in its "the word of the mods have been handed down and you will believe them or burn in flames!" sicy as Moses nonsense. I almost believed it for a day or two.

Weird how some stuff catches people at different moments of gullibility or whatever: I knew from post 1 of the Kuntsmuseum that it was a big joke, probably because of who started it. Or, at least that's what I tell myself

...Uhh...Is it just me or is that Loris startlingly accurate?

ETA: And now I'm certain he's just talking out of his ass.

What Gabe said (though I wasn't here at the time, I read pretty much every post relating to the event, there were several threads).

And for someone who really wasn't on the Shuttlecock train, I definitely agree that the first thread was fucking hilarious.

I know that the whole thread isn't funny, but seriously, for the few pages that this went on, it was amazing: NFL Superbowl thread

I said that I didn't include Shuttlecock's original thread because I was in a hurry and couldn't find it at that moment. Of course this puppy is a classic and will be included:

Shuttlecock!

I'll have to revisit the Beatles Remaster threads, as I don't remember a lot about them offhand.

Still astounding to me that the bloke would not just admit that he didn't know Satellite of Love was a Lou Reed song and not a U2 original.

I still laugh when I think of the one song that had the Rowena's Theme snippet. That some people still believed the show was real after that is about the most extreme gullability I have ever seen here.

I never really saw Edge as the type to use triple exclaimation points and needless all-capitalisation of words, but hey, I say this now.

I thought kunstmuseum started off funny and then turned mean-spirited because it just became fodder for mocking the gullible ones.

El Mel, is this the first instance of someone 'cockifying song titles??


Shuttlecock!


If so, Bravo, sir.
