Someone should go tell them they were off. And while they're at it, should give up posing, because they're not really good at it.... >.<

Why hasn't anyone made something funny with the parachute line?

I was about to, but it would have been waaaaay too violent and possibly offensive. :P

That was me.

:D
And me as well, but I probably wasn't loud enough. I found that pretty upsetting.

In a nutshell, a bunch of retards who have nothing better to do but to make fun of other people and start inside jokes like over 9000 and the ORLY owl. And you can post annononmous so no one will know who you are.

Like everyone else said, stay away from it.

Actually, it's a bunch of smart people acting retarded (unlike the grand majority of the internet, which is a bunch of idiots trying to act smart).

Yea true but overall, there retarded in many forms. I'm not going to get into any details and leave it at that.

4chan is the pit of the internet. It's really harmless (though Fox News would have you believe otherwise) but it's not for the faint of heart - or stomach.
Lulz. Internet haet machine.

It's mostly an obscure /b/ meme that exploded because the VGCats website had it on their frontpage. More proof that everyone visits /b/ >.>
It's just one of those things that got extremely popular to a certain group of people and everyone kinda fell into it.

Over 9000 on encyclopedia dramatica. (a wiki run by 4chan members.)

At the FUNimation One Piece panel, at some certain point in time (possibly during talk about Chris Sabat?), someone out in the audience yelled "IT'S OVER 9000!"... to which I began to yell back, "THAT WASN'T HIM", but in-process, someone louder than me screamed back, "THAT WAS BRIAN DRUMMOND".
Haha, sounded like fun :P

As for 4Chan...just stay away.

This is such a sad truth. It's getting more and more rare to find people who truly respect anime or even just animation in general at these conventions.

I also like how everybody warns to stay away from 4chan, yet they seem to know about the place in great detail. :P

Not sure I believe that..it's not the vibe I got at Otakon anyway. Given the number of people you see cosplaying, at the art gallery, watching anime, or just going to the panels, where are you guys getting this from?

Did you actually listen to anything anyone said? Not just looking at them, but listening to them? Every other word out of Generic Otaku #2's mouth is some kind of internet meme. When it's spread to the dealers, as well... you've got a problem on your hands.

Ok, I admit I was listening not to particular people, just more in general. :) But quoting Internet memes doesn't equal a disinterest in animation. I think it happens because people figure that anime fans are also well-versed in Internet fads, and they probably hear the same things they do. Just my two cents.

Oh, I'll totally agree.

I have absolutely zero familiarity with 4chan, but from what I understand and observe, the vast majority of internet memes all seem to stem from that area, and are eventually (if not overdue and unwelcome by said point) used by the non-anime crowd. That being said, it makes sense that the anime crowd would be the ones most familiar with the material (they created it), and it gives them something else to connect on.

My problem (and I've heard it mentioned by several people over the years, increasingly stated with fierce wording each year) is that this internet-culture-connection is becoming more and more what the people are actually connecting on at the events, rather than what the event was actually started for.

That's a lot of assumptions based on observations (both personal and heresay), but I'd wager it's the truth. The real question is whether or not it *matters* to anyone. Does it matter to me? Yes. I feel like I'm in the same position at an anime con where someone yells out "OVER 9000!" as I do at a show when a young girl asks her friend in a valley-girl accent when this stupid opening act is going to be done. It's frustrating to have that history and past, and have it be taken away in a heartbeat by someone younger.

Does that make me old and unable to adapt? Probably. I can only imagine what it's like for anime fans older than myself who don't have a fucking clue what these kids are talking about :P.

Hmm, someone made a "9000" using Chris Sabbat's version of the line.
