One Direction arrive in Boston, Massachusetts May 20th 2012
Keep coming to this side of the world, we love you here.
The Rules of The Internet are a set of protocols and conventions written by various people within the interwebs for those who consider themselves to bepart of the group Know Your Meme Anonymous
Anonymous is an ad-hoc group of people who act together (or sometimes apart), making their presence known across the internet. They are often known for trolling (e-poking and prodding other board or journal users until they become frustrated or annoyed).
Basically trolling gives them life, and they feast on your tears and frustration.
The list gives you a summary of the most well known and loved terms and memes made popular by the group 4chan. They are all over LiveJournal, Forums, and other boards. If you are deep in the web, you know what I’m talking about.
I may or may not be breaking the first and second rule of the internet by telling you what the first two rules of Anonymous are. And guess what?I’m not sorry. I am - one could say - trolling the trolls!
The first two rules are simply: You DO NOT talk about being a member of Annoymous in your life. This is a community that loves to troll in the deep and create all kinds of havoc. They enjoy creating a panic and scaring with meme’s. Who knows if you’re actually trolling someone you know in real life.
Who hasn’t crossed paths with someone on a community you’re a member of, and realized you went to school with said person, and that they’re in all your classes.
Some say Rules #1 and 2 originate from the scene in FIGHT CLUB where Tyler Durden recites the rules of his club
The First Rule of Fight Club is, you do not talk about fight club. The second rule of fight club is, you do NOT talk about fight club.
Personally I wouldn’t be surprised. Their meme’s, gifs, and trolling skills all seem to be rooted in films, art, music, and other areas of pop culture.

Part Four of
And so my friends,we have come to the end of your studies. But let this humble series serve as a gateway to greater learning. For I have only scratched the surface of what it is you can learn in life
about what internet terms mean and how to use them. Housekeeping
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s carry on:
The Letter S
It’s a short used both sarcastically and literally in and around the interwebs. It’s particularly found in online journals, forums, and other kinds of boards.
S2s that pic is not cute :/
A person who is constantly on you about everything in an annoying and repetitive manner. This person is most likely a parent, guardian, or a spouse
who forgot they aren’t your mama or papa.
THE LETTER T
This is a problem which may occur for some people; upon opening several tabs in your preferred web browser, you might find yourself confused as to what you opened one or two of the tabs for. Commence head scratching.
To be amazing and perfect at everything you do.
THE LETTER U
In this case, using a simple “facepalm” to signal embarrassment is not enough. The big guns must be brought out, and this is what you use. Used on someone who does something so stupid and ridiculous that they have reached the highest level of ridiculousness.
Person 1: “I stole a crayon from the convenient store because I really wanted to colour the corner of my notebook.”
Person 2: UGH UBERFACEPALM
U.A.H: UGLY AS HELL
The literal translation is cow, but it’s actually a French slang word for cops.
To be serene and in perfect harmony with one’s surroundings
THE LETTER W:
W0RD TO THE BIRD (*where the letter “o” is the number zero)
I agree, absolutely, sure.
Person 1: “So are we good for going out Friday night?”
Person 2: “w0rd to the bird!”
Person1 : “cool!”
Text Speak, interweb speak for “wait and see.”
Person 1: “So anything special going to happen?
Person 2: :) W8&C
THE LETTER X
Monica (Geller) Bing on Friends is known to be extremely obsessed with planning, likes to be at the centre of everything, and plan everything the gang does.
Chess playing know it all.
What an xanthos!!
THE LETTER Y
An expression of great frustration.
Y’ARGGGGG I AM SO ANNOYED RIGHT NOW!!
I HATE YOU MATH!!!
‘You don’t know,’ which actually means you don’t know how much I agree with you.
We should go on a date
THE LETTER ZZZZZZ
A nosey person who likes to ask too many questions. Has the potential to be loud but can also be very soft and sweet in nature.
If you live in one of those small towns where there is that one person pulling back his or her window shades to creep through the window and spy on people:
And you then hear them asking questions about your new boyfriend and you say to them:
Then they creep on you all over again….
(Hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Hopefully your friendly
creep neighbour will see if something is a miss and have your back!)
And remember, like a good neighbour, creeper is there.
What’s up with companies offering what they call RECENT GRAD INTERNSHIPS? I’ve just spent X numbers in school, and spent XXX amount of money for school. Graduates are looking for a job to help pay down our debts acquired while getting that magical education people claim is going to get our foot in the door. Couldn’t these opportunities have been offered while I was in school?
Maybe it’s because I watch so much criminal minds,
Murder She Wrote, Columbo, CSI: NY, MIAMI, Vegas, and now Flashpoint when I’m into it: I love a good murder mystery. One of greatest murder mysteries of all time is that of Jack the Ripper. Numerous claims have been made as to the identity of the assailant; Lewis Carroll (author of Alice in Wonderland), James Kelly (man who is believed have murdered his wife, and also interesting because he turned himself into the police 40 years after the murders took place and claimed to be Jack the ripper.) More names include Walter Sickert (a person painted art pieces which in great detail correlates with the murder scenes.) But the trail runs cold for Sickert, as he’s known to have been in France during the times some of the murders took place.
Now new claims being made suggest that he is actually a she! The identity of Jack The Ripper is alleged to be female. The name of the newest suspect is Lizzie Williams, the wife of Doctor John Williams (a man also suspected of being Jack the Ripper.) Retired Irish lawyer John Morris claims that Jack is actually Jackie: Lizzie Williams. He claims Lizzie killed the prostitutes because she was angry over her own difficulty conceiving children.
It’s an interesting theory. We have a wealth of crimes that have occurred in modern times, that are classified crimes of passion. The criminal justice system has made room for these crimes, and sentences to provide for those found guilty. Perhaps Williams might believe that these women having sex for money (and some becoming pregnant quite easily) were not worthy of childbirth. Morris has certainly done his research: none of the prostitutes found slain had been sexually assaulted (just butchered violently…with great degree of overkill as police and other authorities have referred to the crime scenes.) Perhaps Lizzie Williams attacked these female bodies so violently that it became a way for her to attack her own body and it’s betrayal of her.
Morris also found that the personal items of Annie Chapman were laid at her feet in what is believed to be a feminine matter. This is one claim that I’m not really sure I can get on board with. I can’t imagine what can be seen as feminine about how a murderer laying their victims personal affects. In any case, Morris has more to say: three buttons from a woman’s boot were found near the body of another victim. In addition, a the cape, skirt, and hat were found in the fireplace ashes of the third victim Mary Kelly (wife of James Kelly mentioned above), and they didn’t belong to her. Morris also provides evidence that Lizzy Williams husband, Dr. John Williams was having an affair with Mary Kelly (the third victim.) A woman or person scorned angle I can get behind, because we’ve seen it all before. A women chopped off her husband’s penis, [caution graphic images and content at these links] another burned her husband’s penis with hot grease, another set her husband’s penis on fire, and the list of men and woman who have killed their spouse over extramarital affairs is too long to list. Dr. Williams also ran an abortion clinic. One can imagine the issues Williams grappled with, knowing her husband performed abortions for a living, and they themselves could not conceive. Lizzie Williams is also believed to have suffered a nervous breakdown soon after the murders took place. Of course, not many want to believe that such violent and ghastly crimes could have been committed by a woman.
What I want to know is,
thanks for making me think along these lines criminal minds, true crime investigative reports, has anyone thought that perhaps Dr. and Mrs Williams might have been working as a team? A team can in some cases be more difficult to discover, and who (especially in those times), would suspect a woman to be even capable of having any involvement in the brutal and terrorizing murders of other women? What if Lizzie lured the prostitutes with the promise of food, a doctors checkup, fresh clothing, a warm meal, and her husband came round the corner and helped her commit the gruesome crimes?
What do you think? Is it possible that Lizzie Williams committed all of these murders alone, with the help of her husband, or not at all?
This is part three of
THE LETTER M
A Puerto Rican term meaning someone who hesitates spending his or her money.
An person incapable of doing anything, an insignificant person.
THE LETTER N
An acronym proving to be increasingly popular within the interwebs. Mostly used on LiveJournal and fan forums. The meaning is exactly as it sounds: It’s a way to express dislike over anything from your favourite celeb who got an awful haircut, drama/fighting on the interweb boards, or anything else you might want to express dislike about.
DISCLAIMER: The following image may be disturbing to some viewers. Go back to PART TWO, Letter G “GAAM” to cleanse your eyes after viewing. I am only showing you this for educational purposes…
“OMG! Put those things away, NHFT shit.”
The N is silent in this term. It describes a situation when something has gone wrong (in the game, in life), that cannot be fixed.
Say you take a picture of yourself naked and email and or text message it to your boyfriend. Then say you found out you sent those pictures to your boss, your aunt, and your coworkers too.

OBI-WAN: You have much to learn young Jedi. I will teach you.
Being unable to take your eyes off someone or something for fear that when you take your eyes off said object or person, they or it will be gone.
THE LETTER Q
This is what it sounds like: Words (usually expletives) on the interwebs in order to underscore the message that the poster wants the reader to recieve.
The state of being overjoyed to the point that regular words can’t begin to express your glee. So as a result, words like q000t and q000t involving the zero suffice. Possible correlation to numeracy and quantifying ones glee.
Simon can’t contain his glee. His hands are pressed to his face, and dude can’t even keep his usual poker face as you can see.
THE LETTER R
Meant to be said out loud when one is enjoying themselves. It’s also a Nicki Minaj verse from her track “Roman’s Revenge”
A guru; someone who is all knowing, and usually is a man or woman of many talents. Usually they possess powers such as strength, wisdom, and they are seen as superior to everyone.
Er…the makers of this film were unable to work their magic and make it profitable. :/

Please do refer to part one to ensure that you’re up to date on you ABC’s before continuing on to the next phase of your learning.
A final Disclaimer: this is image heavy. So be sure that your computer can handle the heat OK? Now that I’ve gone over my housekeeping, it’s time to carry on with your lessons.
THE LETTER G
A term which is used to signify an exceedingly cute baby. The user must be judicisous in the use of this term. It is only to be used for only an exceptionally special baby, not handed out willy nilly to any kid. I’ve also
seen heard this term being used in a condecending and patronizing manner on the interwebs. So here are examples of the two extremes:
“I’ll have it all done tomorrow”
“…………….sure you will”
An acronym which describes an exceedingly attractive individual.
For Example (Oh Dear)…..readers, forgive me.
Let me preface this by saying that this portion of this might stretch on for longer than usual. Do forgive me as I like all kinds of ice cream:
Matthew Gray Gubler is straight up GAAM *
Shemar Moore is so GAAM *

Idris Elba is so GAAM mmmmm
Harry Styles is definetly GAAM
Zayn Malik is GAAM
Louis Tomlinson is a GAAM
Naill Horan and Liam Payne are known to be GAAMS as well amongst the ONE DIRECTION community. I wouldn’t want to exclude them, lest others beg to differ. :)
Many more GAAM’s and not enough space.
THE LETTER H
Someone who is slow in understanding explanation to a joke, word, phrase, or situation.
This means having a Halo 2 Ending. Halo 2 is the second of a series of video games, and the second is known for being categorically awful and anti climatic. People were shocked, disappointed, and crying.
“Aw man Sid, you and Nancy broke up?”
“Yea man. It was a complete h2 ending.”
THE LETTER I
When you are vehemently denying having time or interest in someone approaching you at the bar, going to visit someone, and even for some, they aint got no time for their taxes either.
A phrase that signals approval of a certain idea.
“OOOh Tupac’s jam is playing (Click his gorgeous face for the track) I ain’t mad.”
There is also the possibility to have sinister undertones and melancholy attached to it (as is the case with I ain’t mad at cha by Tupac).
THE LETTER J
A person who runs their mouth too much and speaks up about things that are not any of their business, and that they know nothing about. They are often found to be stubborn, defensive, and rigid.

PERSON 1: L2READ
Dwayne Wade (of the Miami Heat), started this meme on twitter. It means “Laughing to myself.”
That shot was nothing but net! Damn I’m good. L2MS.”
This is the only alphabet you’ll ever need in your
online life. It’s going to l take you places, and keep you regular. In the interest of not creating sore pockets on your bum bums, I’m dividing this into four parts. Prepare for
THE LETTER A:
This replaces using an actual swear word. Not sure why this exists, since most people are perfectly capable of typing fuck, shit, etc. Oh well.
You would say: !!! AASE!!! I just failed my drivers test :(
….Also, feel free to put your head in the table in anguish and cry your eyes out, for the shitload of money you’re going to have to pay to take that test again.
Japaenese colloquial term used to replace saying goodbye (adios, sayonara). It means “catch you later,” or “see you later” when translated roughly in English.
When leaving an online community
after chatting for way longer than you should have about comics, your favorite bands, news
You would say: Alright dudes, I’m going to bed, abayo!!!
It’s also customary to include a gif of a cartoon/film/animal sleeping. So I’ve heard…
THE LETTER B:
The act of wandering the streets with the hopes of attracting females with eye-fucks (will explain this term momentarily).
Here are four Englishmen (and one Irishman)on the prowl. They are in search of five nice girls to take home with them for the night and beyond. It’s also important to note that they are all moving in One Direction , and in a pack.
A game involving drinking beer and shooting a small ball into a cup. Often played in basements.
THE LETTER C:
A way to express that you can’t be bothered/don’t care to do something, or involve yourself in any particular issue.
This dog is cabid about doing anything else but sleeping. Can you blame this adorable pup? Sleep is gold.
Spanish word meaning to have a large head (literally and theoretically).
LOOK at how massive Eddie Murphy’s head is here. He’s also believed (in some circles of the industry), to be rather arrogant and big headed.
THE LETTER D:

For example: “DNW anything to do with this place.”
Devastating for morale. A series of events (or one particularly alarming one), which is off the charts awful.
BARCA (F.C BARCELONA’S) victory of Real Madrid (December, 2011 :()may have been D4M.
Or if you watch that handball game that thinks it’s allowed to be called “football,” this touchdown might be D4M
THE LETTER E:
(Mention briefly under the letter b within this post), it is the act of staring at someone without any words, because you are so overcome by their sexy that you just have to eye fuck them (imagine what you’d do if you could get them naked/make them want to get naked in front of you).
“Dude don’t even lie, we all saw you eye-fucking her last night” *cackles*
The most amazing, most adorable boy/man in the universe.
He’s so ealy bell. *Happy Sigh* Ladies and gentleman, let’s not lie to ourselves; we all have had/currently have an Ealy bell.
THE LETTER F:
A word used to describe someone who has lost touch with what is going on around him(also known as someone who has “lost the plot,” as Brits might say).
Over the course of his presidency, a lot of people were convinced that President Bush (JR) was fabboon, or had lost the plot. The Dixie Chicks believed it.
To get owned/handed your ass, defeated by a tech, gaming or all around genius and wonderful man. The perfect example of this is how The President of the United States and his wonderful military on the ground pawned certain people
spending too much time delving into their racism and disgusting pointless rhetoric…
Music heals. I’ve been through a lot in my life, and worked through pain that can go alongside difficulty. And I think that’s a part of life: we’re all going to experience pain and loss to one degree or another in our lives. What makes us who we are is how we work through the pain the best way we know how. If we’re lucky we become stronger because of it. Bob Marley wasn’t lying when he said “the one thing about music, is when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
This post is about artists who have spoken for friends or family, or have written a song directly related to their own grief, pain or anger.
A stunning song about a friend of his who miscarried her baby after four months. Ed turned a heartwrenching tragedy into something beautiful.
The ultimate when it comes to an artist trying to make sense of their own pain. Eric Clapton wrote this song to work through the pain of loosing his child; his son Conor fell from the 53rd floor of the apartment of his mother’s friend. He arrived very soon after it happened and was obviously experiencing levels of anguish some of us may or may not have experience - or have yet to experience - in our lives.
This song is completely righteous, loud, and angry. The kind of pain the Dixie Chicks are working through is anger; these ladies said while on stage that they didn’t support the war, and the president for sending troops off to what they believed to be a senseless war. (This IN NO WAY) was disrespecting the troops; they simply used their concert to express their opinions on politics and their president. People told them to shut up, that they should keep their opinions to themselves, told their children to hate these ladies, threatened their lives. All of this, for using their voice. In fact, they were told specifically to “shut up and sing,”so in true Dixie Chick form, they did.
This song -written by Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Walter Afanasieff (record producer, Singer/Songwriter) - is about losing a loved one and meeting them once again in heaven. Specifically, Mariah and the guys in the band Boys Boyz II Men wrote it about people who they had lost in their lives, and also to people who were struggling with AIDS, and those who had succumbed to the virus. It’s such a a stunning song, and it can mean anything you want.
WARREN ZEVRON - KEEP ME IN YOUR HEART
Zevron was in a compelling and painful position: he knew he was dying. This song served as his goodbye to his loved ones, and to the world. This song was released on his final album called The Wind (2003). It showed that he was ready to go, and he said everything he wanted to say. Kind of makes me choked up thinking about it. None of us knows when we’re going to go, I’d like to think that when It’s my time to go I said everything I wanted to say to everyone, did everything I felt needed to be done. I challenge you to not feel a knot in your throat over for this one…
I couldn’t make a post like this without including The Beatles. This song is about love and loss, and the emotional, mental, and inner change and turmoil you go through. It’s so beautiful and heartbreaking when you listen to it, I just don’t have much to say that would do it justice. So just listen.
To me, Tupac was a King. He was one of those rappers who measured every word and made sure they had purpose. He was extremely intelligent, well spoken, and knew how the opportunities he had in his life had an effect on who he came to be. Tupac kind of saw himself as prophetic; he believed his own death was coming (and sadly he was right). And I see this song as him kind of taking control of what he knew was coming, and taking away the power from who would be the one to kill him. Working through the fear, the paranoia, what he’s seen in his life, and making peace with what was to come. I don’t think there will ever be any other rapper who is anything like him.
I’m not biting words with this one, or covering my baseball bat with any raw sugar. I’m just going to put it out there:
How can a single mother (who benefits from the 21st century acceptance of a woman having a baby out of that ~precious republican wedlock~) think it’s OK to insult the president of the united states and as a result the first lady, and their children?
These are the thoughts of an ignorant woman:
Palin makes it clear —she believes Obama is a weak, pathetic, stupid man for allowing his daughters to influence his opinion on gay marriage.
In her blog entry, Palin writes, “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case,it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.”
The 21-year-old unwed mother continues, “As great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”
“I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.”
Does she want people to make any comments about the close-minded, ignorant, household she’s revealed her child to be growing up under?
Bristol guess what? Not everyone in America is Christian. Some people are Muslim, Atheists, Buddhist…To me, religion has no business mingling with politics. Everyone in U.S Is required to pay taxes, and for people to think it’s OK to restrict people’s right to marry, or be together if they so choose, and relieve the safety benefits that come with marriage makes no sense to me.
Those living in glass houses, shouldn’t be throwing stones. *
