Oh now, we're being a little harsh. To explain, Adamms222: GYWO was the subject of an infamous period in MeFi history - I saw the whole thing happen when I was still a lurker, but there's (obviously) some folks here now who didn't have direct exposure to it.

In short: late last year, the link was repeatedly posted, and Matt kept deleting it. Then, he went away for a weekend, and didn't tell anyone (the nerve!) At that point, someone - I can't remember who - deliberately posted it again, and essentially taunted everyone who complained with protestations of innocence. All hell broke loose, and many users cowered in fear until Matt finally swooped back in to vent his wrath on everyone involved. It was a bad scene, and ever since, GYWO posts have been verboten. Thus, the snarks that resulted in this thread.

Thanks for the memory jog, bondcliff. Anyone who wants to revisit that painful period (or see what all the fuss was about) can now do so, by the way, through the magic of the lofi.mefi wayback machine.

As I was walking home this evening, a little girl was riding her bike in the middle of the street. She still had the training wheels on as she wobbled and struggled to peddle. It reminded me of when I was little and how badly I wanted a bicycle but couldn't get one. My parents wouldn't let me have a bike until I was 12; my mom was too afraid I'd hurt myself. I'd pass the bike section in the store and just look, having given up asking my parents about it long ago. I eventually did get one after much pleading and begging. Amazingly, getting my driver's license at 16 and the subsequent borrowing of the family car passed without incident.

Of Man's first disobedience, and the fruit
Of that forbidden tree whose mortal taste
Brought death into the world and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us and regain the blissful seat,
Sing, Heav'nly Muse, that on the secret top
Of Oreb, or of Sinai, didst inspire
That shepherd who first taught the chosen seed
In the beginning how the heav'ns and earth
Rose out of Chaos; or if Sion hill
Delight thee more, and Siloa's brook that flow'd
Fast by the oracle of God, I thence
Invoke thy aid to my advent'rous song,
That with no middle flight intends to soar
Above th' Aonian mount, while it pursues
Things unattempted yet in prose or rhyme.
And chiefly thou, O Spirit, that dost prefer
Before all temples th' upright heart and pure,
Instruct me, for thou know'st; thou from the first
Wast present, and, with mighty wings outspread,
Dove-like sat'st brooding on the vast Abyss
And mad'st it pregnant: what in me is dark
Illumine, what is low raise and support,
That to the highth of this great argument
I may assert Eternal Providence
And justify the ways of God to men.

Say first, for Heav'n hides nothing from thy view
Nor the deep Tract of Hell, say first what cause
Mov'd our Grand Parents in that happy State,
Favour'd of Heav'n so highly, to fall off
From their Creator, and transgress his Will
For one restraint, Lords of the World besides?
Who first seduc'd them to that fowl revolt?
Th' infernal Serpent; he it was, whose guile
Stird up with Envy and Revenge, deceiv'd
The Mother of Mankinde, what time his Pride
Had cast him out from Heav'n, with all his Host
Of Rebel Angels, by whose aid aspiring
To set himself in Glory above his Peers,
He trusted to have equal'd the most High,
If he oppos'd; and with ambitious aim
Against the Throne and Monarchy of God
Rais'd impious War in Heav'n and Battel proud
With vain attempt. Him the Almighty Power
Hurld headlong flaming from th' Ethereal Skie
With hideous ruine and combustion down
To bottomless perdition, there to dwell
In Adamantine Chains and penal Fire,
Who durst defie th' Omnipotent to Arms.
Nine times the Space that measures Day and Night
To mortal men, he with his horrid crew
Lay vanquisht, rowling in the fiery Gulfe
Confounded though immortal: But his doom
Reserv'd him to more wrath; for now the thought
Both of lost happiness and lasting pain
Torments him; round he throws his baleful eyes
That witness'd huge affliction and dismay
Mixt with obdurate pride and stedfast hate:
At once as far as Angels kenn he views
The dismal Situation waste and wilde,
A Dungeon horrible, on all sides round
As one great Furnace flam'd, yet from those flames
No light, but rather darkness visible
Serv'd only to discover sights of woe,
Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace
And rest can never dwell, hope never comes
That comes to all; but torture without end
Still urges, and a fiery Deluge, fed
With ever-burning Sulphur unconsum'd:
Such place Eternal Justice had prepar'd
For those rebellious, here their Prison ordain'd
In utter darkness, and their portion set
As far remov'd from God and light of Heav'n
As from the Center thrice to th' utmost Pole.
O how unlike the place from whence they fell!
There the companions of his fall, o'rewhelm'd
With Floods and Whirlwinds of tempestuous fire,
He soon discerns, and weltring by his side
One next himself in power, and next in crime,
Long after known in PALESTINE, and nam'd
BEELZEBUB. To whom th' Arch-Enemy,
And thence in Heav'n call'd Satan, with bold words
Breaking the horrid silence thus began

It's almost been a year since the original post -- I don't think it's unreasonable to make a note of the book ("All the author royalties from "Get Your War On" will be donated to Mine Detection & Dog Center Team #5. MDC Team #5 clears landmines and unexploded ordnance in Afghanistan.") and the 14 editions following the original. The last few are really tops, by the way. Don't miss God pouring Gatorade on Dick Cheney in page thirteen, and page fourteen is, well, exquisite.

In any case, this thread's a keeper.

Internet History Revisionists make me sick. It's not just trolling, but adding them to this thread begs the question of whether they deserve to be included or not. People who post things like Porn Star or My Little Pony are being counter productive. If we don't draw the line somewhere, Matt should shutdown this post for overt Anti-Meme-itism.

Ahh, memories, memories, memories.. Someone pass me a hanky, my eyes are getting all soggy seeing those links again..

I think I'll go load up some classic software and golden games for a bit more nostalgia..

Or make some comics for a laugh (not as good as Sluggy or Sinfest tho, class).

Here's a generic link to some movie/music/tv. I have nothing to add, so I ask you: what movie/music/tv do you like?

May I have a moment of your time/

I just wanted to let everyone know that this is my last post. Obviously, even with my best efforts I don't fit in here. I did want to say thank you to Matt for providing such a wonderful site as this, and for all his efforts in making metafilter what it is. He has been very gracious and helpful to me in my time here, and I wanted to express my appreciation. To all the rest of you, we may not always have gotten along, but I really did enjoy getting to know you all.

See you in the funny papers......

This is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. How did they get those cats wedged in there?

Also, (I can't believe no one has posted this yet) are you looking for a gift for that special child?

Still my all-time favorite MeFi comment. I damn near laughed beer through my nose reading it again just now.

Hey, do you guys remember the time on Happy Days when Fonzie jumped over some sharks on water skis? This is like that for the InterWeb.

Just 1 more hour and we've reach 24 hours of non-stop nonsense. This could be one of MeFi's All time greats.

Not sure what he is doing with his other eyeball, however.

Has anyone heard of something called The Guardian? Why hasn't anyone mentioned it before? It's a big pile of paper which is sold each day, full of words and pictures which sometimes make sense. The ones which make the most sense get put up on the World Wide Internet for people to read. I'll be looking at this again.
