It still exists if that's what you mean. And it likely has more concurrent users now than when it was really hyped. I found a 2007 article claiming 20,000 concurrent users, while the current metrics are around 50,000. So it's still going along, though clearly failed in their ambitions when you compare it to things like WarCraft.

If a game was cancelled, it was still a game.

Emphasis mine. Is vs was.

There are no real birds left after all, not after the government got through with em.

The best internet conspiracy theory.

Star Trek's version of tolerance is simple, you are a valid alien culture worthy of equality and protection so long as you are already Human and American enough. Sometimes they talk about how interesting and unique a differing culture is before showing them how much better it is to subsume into their own.

That episode about a planet/moon pair inhabited by separate but related civilizations where one's economy was fueled by drug sales to the other was a trip. It turned into a hamfisted almost-DARE thing so I suppose the resurgence of that memory is WTF-worthy.

Except for "Home Soil" from TNG, yeah. And that one didn't do well ratings-wise.

Don't forget the time Tripp on Enterprise convinced a pregnant woman to commit suicide. They looked sad into the camera for like an episode over that one.

Slammed the back door of my car shut, and the opposite door popped open. Tried fixing it for a while, but I eventually had to run back into work for some help, since it wouldn't stay shut.

With the help of some coworkers, it's fixed with some redneck engineering right now; just some rope and some hope.

My old car's back doors used to freeze overnight, so that that latches would be stuck.  On colder days the door could be yanked open but then would be stuck in the open position until i warmed up the car.

What is this in response to?
Aww, I had hoped someone would get the reference and explain by the time I woke up. Oh well, here.



In my own WTF, somewhat related: WTF happened to LMGTFY? I remember it being so much less, well... shit.
Is there a "classic" version floating about somewhere?

Thank you for the reference. I’ve never heard of this before, to your WTF, I haven’t seen this anagram before so I’m going to guess what it means. Does it mean Let Me Get That For You? If so, I’ve not seen them and can’t answer your question, if not, I don’t know what it is referring to and still am unable to answer the question, however I can try, if it is a meme of some sort, try searching for “original LMGTFY”

Nah it's the site I linked, "Let me Google that for you".
The design's changed a lot since I last used it, back in the day the page was laid out like a mock-Google, just with the words "let me" and "that for you" scrawled in either side of it.

Maybe Google finally decided they didn't approve of this? :(

Possibly. I need to pay attention to site names more often than I do
