So I've been browsing these forums for over 2 years now, and it seems like every now and then a random topic comes up. The most recent one I saw was the reference to floorcaek (in the Epic Beard Man thread). I finally tracked down this which kind of explained it. I have also noticed a lot of references to bears (this also came up in the Epic Beard Man thread, but most notably here). And of course >EAT ROPE!, which after some research appears to have originated here. I got a kick out of reading the EAT ROPE story, and the others are interesting to say the least. I have 2 questions: 1. Are there other things/words/topics that are GD's own that are totally random and obscure, and 2. what's with the bears? I still haven't figured that one out.

I'm not sure if it's good or bad that someone is trying to analyze the history of the Lounge.

Wow. It's been a while since I haven't been to TA (seeing as how it doesn't exist).

To answer the OP's questions:
1. I'm sure there are. I've probably forgotten much of them though. That sort of thing happens with old age. Just don't ask about scanner CDs. Or goats that can see. (I personally, have seen neither, thankfully).
2. I don't know, but it does remind me of a joke:

A bear walks into a bar, sits down, and asks the bartender "Can I have a gin... and tonic." The bartender says "OK. But why the pause?". The pear holds up his paws and says "We'll I'm a bear, you idiot!".

(It's more entertaining in person).

Remember that thread where nes was looking for a bakery to make him a birthday cake with a picture of the goat printed on top of it... I would've paid money to see a vid of him actually attempting this (including the part where he would've been arrested ;)

Man, we were fucking immature back then :)

Ha, unfortunately I'm familiar with goats that can see (co-workers introduced me), and I think seeing someone trying to get a cake printed with one would be hilarious!

I really only ATE WAFFLES once or twice when gamedev went down and the only thing I remember is something along the lines of "Gamedev is like a fat kid running around in circles. Eventually it just dies."

How could you have left out the Giant Space Pipe?!

Also, "There is always the single player campaign." No luck finding the OP on that one though. It was probably deleted, is was quite distasteful (but very funny in an I'm going to hell kinda way).

By any chance would this be storing its data using that newfangled mp3 compression beating algorithm?


Also, let's not forget that horrible gamdev.net offshoot of general mayhem's HELMUT thread.

I really think we should be trying to resist this sort of thread.

It's only the first result. [wink] I wonder what happened to Kuato, or if Toxic Hippo ever got the girl (with or without an iPod)?

In no particular order:

New topic theory
MP3 beating compression
Specular Lightosis
Landfish and EGG
The ultimate thread
Blackmage and the Mexican wrestler incident
Yoda, Fongerchat and all that stuff. Poppet.
The Warsong collection
The pink gang
Resist banners
Go jump off a cliff
Feelevil and his numerous plots of wiping out humanity
That incident where someone (I think it was AdmiralBinary) SQL injected the GDNet database and run a script that would offset all topic IDs by one
The resulting witchhunt and SHilbert's GDNet 'hack'
The fork story
The rise and fall of Bishop_pass
Nurgle being demodded for massive power abuse
The G art competition
Basically everything involving Nes or Pouya
Nope and "uh, no"

and probably many more I forgot.

Oh yeah, and then the short, yet very intense time span between the moment someone realized that you could insert javascript into your posts and the staff blocking it...

javascript is blocked? (I guess the incident you're talking about was plain <script> tags?)

I got ~70 rating points in one day when I posted my javascript DIY spoiler tag ;)

Back then you could insert code that would execute by simply viewing a thread. That was, uh, interesting... Nowadays Superpig would probably insta-ban anyone for even thinking about trying this [wink]
