It's a Small World After All
 
So, I was browsing the internet after returning from a New Year's Eve party and I ran across this:

A look closer:

OMG!!111!!1one!11!


Alright, maybe on one else will find that as interesting/disturbing/awesome as I thought it was, but it got me to think about how crazy our world is becoming, especially with the rise of the internet in our new generation. How it has become so simple for us to communicate and share ideas, and just how fast technology is advancing.... it's almost scary when I think about where we could be in 15 or 20 years.... it kind of freaks me out.


Another example is me getting into an "argument" (if you can call it that) with someone on digg about our opposing views on politics, only to discover months later that it was my brother.... whom I didn't even know used digg. So it got me wondering: does anyone have any interesting stories of similar experiences of running into someone you knew or know online? Completely at random?

how did you find out it was your brother? what did you when you found out?

TiE23 01-01-2008 05:15 AM

Did it turn physical? Like, "No, my point of view on the subject is much more logical! *Jab!* You're clearly confused! *Punch!* We should start calling French Fries 'Freedom Fries' instead! *Upper-cut!*"

Or did it turn sexy? Like, "So you were the man I debated on the internets a while back!" "I know, and I have another secret for you, brother. I'm in love." "With who???" "With you. Ravage me now!" "But you know it is forbidden, brother, it is the gravest of taboos amongst our society." "Let us not worry about civilization, for we shall run into the woods and have hot hairy naked seditious incestuous homosexual relations of an extremely sexual kind." "Seditious?" "Yes, for our passion will convert the entire nation to a citizenry of incestuous homosexuals!" "Oh brother, you did always shine of a kinky radiance when you spoke of anarchy!"

(It's New Years Eve. I could have been drunk on anything while this was written. Well, sparkling apple cider. Regardless, I can feel it fermenting within my gastrointestinal track!)

TiE23 01-01-2008 05:50 AM

Yeah, you'll regret that in the morning when you find out your err... kid... (?) has 12 toes.

O_o


No.


Thank God, no.


and @ TiE, even if you are a "Trend setter" or whatever that feature is, there have to be thousands and thousands of people with that feature enabled, and even though it was on Digg when I checked it it only had about 90 diggs or so. It's still a crazy coincidence that I ran across you.

Or I actually am stalking you.

*Don* 01-01-2008 01:27 PM

Yea. Something like that happened to me as well.

I got into a fight with a person on another forum.
I went to school the next day and found out it was one of my close friends.

Its kinda wierd if u think bout it.
Did u hear bout the people that get married online??!!!

It was in an article in Time Magazine.

Tyrion 01-01-2008 04:49 PM

In retrospect, that post probably wasn't the best way to start off the new year. Oh well.

I disagree, it was a great way to start the new year, for me at least.

Seconded.

On a related note to the original topic, I've often wondered if well known celebrities play online games like WoW. Kind of crazy to think you could have Quested with William Shatner and never even known it.

You. Would have KNOWN. If you had. Quested with. Shatner. For he would have. Talked like. THIS.

In the metal scene George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher is a pretty well known celebrity I guess, as he's the singer of Cannibal Corpse. He also does several guest voices in Metalocalypse and was one of the inspirations for Nathan Explosion.

Warning: The video contains a lot of bad language.

El Sitherino 01-02-2008 08:53 AM

That was the greatest video ever.

I want to challenge him and Rollins to a mexican standoff as Angriest Nerd.

MrWally 01-02-2008 12:39 PM

" **** THE ALLIANCE! ****ING DIE YOU ****ING EMO **** SUCKERS! "


That video was unbelievable. Oh my god. I'm in awe.

BongoBob 01-02-2008 08:50 PM

All you alliancefags take note. Corpsegrinder will f*** you up :p

Seph 01-04-2008 12:22 AM

So on WoW I quested with some one for a while and after a while I figured out it was my best buddy so we had a great laugh the next day and cancelled our accounts cause we're poor

Admit that the real reason you quit was because Corpsegrinder came after you with his mother****ing lvl 70 orc warrior and a giant chainsaw.

I see NOTHING has changed around here...but this is the best thing to read when I visit. It makes me miss this place's shenanigans...
