when we started assigning confectioneries to sexual acts
When the hell was this and why wasn't I invited

I am beginning to suspect a lack of goodwill on your part

Pretty sure desc was there, so it's been within the last four years. If I remembered more specifically than that I'd just go and check :V

Also I don't think you weren't invited, you just didn't show up.

Well, if that was long ago, then maybe I wasn't even there yet.

I remember it so it can't have been too long ago.

Anyone remember what cake was innuendo for, when we started assigning confectioneries to sexual acts? Maybe the other ones, too. I've forgotten, and I'd like to know exactly what I'd be insinuating if I went and ate some of the apple pie in the other room.

"Cake" = "romantic relationship". "Frosting" = "Sex".

Pie was platonic relationships; pie with frosting-esque content (like meringue) was friends-with-benefits.

Strangely, I can't actually find my original post about this. The closest I can get is references to it from May 2013.

e: WAIT WAIT I FOUND IT. Continues on for another page or two.

Apparently, there's a Category 4 hurricane heading in my direction, about tomorrow or so.

Really, I'd wish people would tell me theses things sooner.

Hmmm...Is 'stay safe and I hope your shit doesn't get wrecked' or 'why are you still online? get the fuck out of there' the better thing to say in this situation?

Yes, but it depends on the T- for impact.

It has been determined that Trump is an average unladen swallow travelling northbound at his maximum sustainable speed of -3 Obama-cubits per second in the middle of a class 3 hurricane.

Eh, if there's still internet to be had there's probably still time to run screaming into the hills if it's appropriate to do so.

The r9k board on 4chan is in a frenzy over this school shooting. Someone on 4chins spread news that this guy known as "eggman" was the shooter and gave his name as "Toby Reynolds" and now news and social media are all believing unconfirmed hearsay from an anonymous imageboard and hating on a guy who didn't do anything simply because he looks like "someone who'd shoot up schools".

The internet is possibly the most useful invention for preserving and sharing information that humanity has ever made and yet it's still so disgustingly piss-easy for misinformation to not only be spread but be accepted as true simply because everyone else is saying it is.

Big news networks, at least here in America, have shifted from doing actual journalism to primarily aggregating and regurgitating information from others.  Its seriously like getting your news off of Reddit/Tumblr/random blogs at this point.  The only real difference is that news networks have access to things like press releases and intentional leaks, and as a result of this access tend to be a little faster on the jump with certain stories but on the other hand are more restricted in what they can talk about.

You misspelled seance.  Are possessing Draignean?  Are you actually a ghost in the shell? You have to tell us if you are, that's the rule

Most news networks just rehash stories from the AP or Reuters.

There was an even better, longer, video of weather reporters reporting on an incoming hurricane... but I couldn't find it.  This is short and almost as good.

I kinda knew once CNN dropped 4chan's name in the story like it was Twitter, the level of fact checking was somewhere between 0 and -1.
