    You know how this goes.

    Memes. Virals. Musical Insanity, video villainy. Any and all bait for the following conditions: mouth-smirk, diaphragm-rip, arse-leak, colleague-dismissal. That which renders the working-day bearable. That which dooms culturists to misery.

    Your net foragings. The scum which accumulates on the surface of your inbox. The froth on the drunken face of the world. The gorgeous spraint of the massmind. Bring it all hither.

    (Note that news stories and Things Of Interest now have a separate home in the “NewStrange” thread. This right here is where we present anything that would be fundamentally valueless, if it weren’t so clearly brilliant.)

    I don't know if anyone else noticed but the last Around The Net thread had 666 comments.

    That deserves some surprisingly eerie shit:
    surpising, no?

    This is a thing that exists. Why was I not previously informed?

    This... is strange. It's a kind of text-based adventure game, but...

    I'm not really a fan of Bleeding Cool and some of Rich's nonsense but this I think is a great idea just because... jesus, really?

    "If you are a women who has ever, I don’t know, been to a comic shop of their own volition, feel free to send us evidence of this and we’ll run a nice big post ahead of tomorrow’s episode of The Television Show That Hates You."

    By which he means Big Bang Theory who are doing a whole women in a comic shop the horror the horror ha ha ha thing tomorrow apparently.

    Well, Big Bang Theory also believes females still don't play video games, so there's that.

    I like the show, and actually the Penny character has kicked the guys ass on video games in several episodes, but it is popular to bash the show among the "I only listen to bands you've never heard of" crowd.

    Or the "goddammit, why is this a nerd minstrel show" crowd. Sorry if I sound butthurt, and I don't mean to start shit, but the "I only listen to bands you've never heard of" crowd is a terrible way to dismiss people who don't like this show as not having a valid opinion because they're snobs.

    Also, it's clearly not the case. Look at the traction this story has been getting.

    BBT has moments, but for a show that's ostensibly about messing with stereotypes, it all too often falls back on embracing those stereotypes.

    Not to mention that when the writers can't think of anything else, they fall back on "geeky pop culture reference without any actual joke in it=instant humor gold".

    So when Family Guy puts BBT on to mock it, and it sounds like an actual non-pop-culture joke from BBT... Um... Some kinda media universe thing somewhere just imploded, I guess?
