Yeah, those "awesome childhood" memes annoy me as well. It's like they're a lazy way for people to feel cool.

Well I can only speak for myself, but in a throwaway fun thread posting meme images (sorry I didn't research the people's ideal definition of a meme...), I just posted "memes" that I thought were fun and somewhat rung true to me personally. And *gasp* Dragon Ball is a positive memory for me growing up (i.e. awesome). Wasn't trying to be cool.

Both are aliens sent to Earth shortly after birth to escape the destruction of their homeworlds; both possess super-strength, flight, super-speed, heightened senses and the ability to cast energy blasts. But the crucial difference between them lies not only in how they view the world, but in how the world views them.

Superman is, and always has been, a symbol for truth, justice, and upstanding moral fortitude–a role model and leader as much as a fighter. The more down-to-earth Goku has no illusions about being responsible for maintaining social order, or for setting some kind of moral example for the entire world. Goku is simply a martial artist who’s devoted his life toward perfecting his fighting skills and other abilities. Though never shy about risking his life to save either one person or the entire world, he just doesn’t believe that the balance of the world rests in any way on his shoulders, and he has no need to shape any part of it in his image. Goku is an idealist, and believes that there is some good in everyone, but he is unconcerned with the big picture of the world…unless it has to do with some kind of fight. Politics, society, law and order don’t have much bearing on his life, but he’s a man who knows right from wrong.

Yeah... it could be great if actual effort had gone into it, instead of just cutting and pasting a whole bunch of meme garbage onto it.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

This suddenly stopped being threatening for some reason around...oh, about the time of the Cell Games. So Goku went with Plan B...dying.

I dislike memes, but I came up with this, so I just quickly threw it together:
