I've got two, namely

That Doom feature in Wax Poetics was interesting. He was all like, "I'm just a regular guy

which I thought was too boring to post, and

GOD CUTTY WHY DON'T YOU QUIT

which was supposed to be a funny post on the lose weight thread, but I thought it might be interpreted as serious.

"#^&*$$%&*"

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 15 September 2009 19:22 (ten years ago) link

out of context: "searches for 'crepey' and 'ban' have provided me more than enough fodder"

now I'm having second thoughts about posting that ...

this is the turd (this is the turd) that the lord hath made (that the lord hath made)
i will rejoice (i will rejoice) and be glad in it (and be glad in it)

and imagine fozzy bear singing the parentheticals.

That phrase is interesting because it adjusts the emphasis so the sentence is more iambic. But it would have to because

i was gonna post on that glenn beck thread that i wished glenn beck would die, but then i kept thinking about how mean that is. plus, i may have already posted that on the glenn beck thread in the past.

I was gonna post on the '"500 Days of Summer" thread that I thought it would make a good back story for Cobra Commander, but I didn't feel like searching for the thread, coz what if someone already made the comment? I'd have to do 'edit' 'find' 'cobra', and display all posts. So, I posted it on facebook anyway.

I don't know? It's got a woman in the title, but it's two years old and the reads are on-site reads. It doesn't make sense. The simpsons porn one only partly makes sense, but a lot of those reads are site reads too. Wait, I get that one, because it persists because of the most read threads page working in concert with google hits. But the other one with the girl I just don't get, unless it's a lesser version of the same phenomenon.

Fact: www.dhmo.org is a website dedicated to that stupid joke your chemistry teacher makes in high school about dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) being the most abundant, potentially dangerous chemical in the world.

Fact: according to double top-secret web analytics I saw for epa.g0v today, the number two referrer to EPA's website in the past 3 months was www.dhmo.org, and it's been in the top 5 for the past year.

lol there are a few longstanding threads like that, some of the music ones with daft rhetorical questions like "why isn't everybody talking about this artist/record i like?" and the urge to chime in 15 years down the line with a quick "because they're rubbish" is a constant little imp on my shoulder
