4chan, America, and Anime: Researchers Studied 160 Milliorn Memes and Found Most of Them Come From Two Websites A study of hundreds of millions of images from Reddit, 4chan, Gab, and Twitter reveals how memes spread. Samantha Cole Jun 12 2018,10:27am 产ブ Researchers at University College London developed a new way to measure how memes are made and spread. What they found won't surprise anyone who's peered into the darker parts of the internet in the last few years: The most toxic, yet most effectively spread, memes are first shared on two places, the subreddit r/the_donald and 4chan's "politically incorrect" forum, called /pol/ Smug Frog Meme Image Cluster 1 Cluster N Figure 1: An example of a meme (Smug Frog) that provides an intu- ition of what an image, a cluster, and a meme is.

Clusters are labeled with the origin (4 for 4chan, D for The Donald, and G for Gab) and the meme name. To ease readability, we do not display all labels, abbreviate meme names, and only show an excerpt of all relationships.

This is fucking transcendental. AND THE BEST PART IS THAT IT’S ENTIRELY WITHIN THE REALM OF CANON POSSIBILITY. I’m actually surprised that this hasn’t happened. poor sammy Dean: “Uh…character flaws for 100” Gabriel: “This character suffers from crippling issues with his own self-worth due to a lifetime spent religiously obeying his abusive father!” Dean: “Oh come on…” Gabriel: “Final answer?” Dean: “No uh…Dean. Who is Dean? Me. Whatever.” Gabriel: “Correct! Nnnnnext category!” Dean: “…C-character flaws for 200.” Gabriel: “This character used to consider himself the better of two brothers, but after several years of reckless decisions and huge failings that left hundreds perhaps thousands dead he’s since spiraled into a perpetual state of self-hatred and depression!” Dean: *side-eyes Sam* “C-can I choose another category?” Gabriel: “Nope!” Dean: “But I—“ Gabriel: “Oh come on this one is EASSSYY! I’ll even give you a hint.” Dean: “No I—“ Gabriel: “It’s the same brother who got your mom kille—” Dean: “SAM ALRIGHT? SAM. WHO IS SAM?” Gabriel: “CCCOOOORREECCTTT! AND DEAN IS BLAZING UP THE LEADER BOARD. NNNNEXT QUESTION!” *Both Winchesters sink into immense inescapable self loathing* Gabriel: You’re still in control of the board Dean, you’re doing great. Dean: *smirks at Sam* Ok, let’s get out of this fucking category.  Sexual Humiliation for 500. Gabriel: If you’re sure.  “This character tried on panties and he liked it.” Sam: *buzz* “Who is Dean?” Gabriel: Right you are my boy.  Dean: Dammit Sam, how did you know that?? Sam: It was an educated guess.  I’ll take sexual humiliation for 300. Gabriel: “This character is in love with a certain rebel angel named Castiel and he won’t admit it.“ Castiel: *buzz* “Who is Dean?” Gabriel: Correctomundo!  I’m surprised you got that, you always were a bit dense bro. Dean:  CAS?! Castiel: *ignores dean* Why are these answers in the forms of questions?  Or should I say *buzz* “These answers are in the form of questions” to make it a question.  It’s all very confusing.  Gabriel: Come on, kiddo you’re sucking the fun out of it. Just pick a category. Castiel: *squints at board* .. uh.. Betrayal for $100. (laser beam noises) Castiel: What- Gabriel: WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT IT’S THE DAILY DOUBLE!  Sam and Dean: *groaning* Gabriel: How much you wanna wager? Castiel: Wager? Gambling really isn’t a good habit, and I’m not sure- Gabriel: All right, the whole $500 it is! “This character betrayed his family for the Winchesters, then betrayed the Winchesters for Crowley, and then, in proper assbutt fashion, betrayed Crowley for himself. And then kind of fucked the world over a few times too, in the meanwhile.” Castiel: … *heavy sigh* I promised I would redeem myself- Gabriel: OOPS WRONG ANSWER. We’ll open it to the other contestants.  Sam: *buzz* Who is Castiel? Dean: Sammy, come on.. Sam: What? I wanna win.. It got better Every bit of this is gold. Where has this been all my life I just can’t breathe anymore 😂😂😂

Fake, Google, and Memes: Why the Earth is "shaped like a pear" Oblate Spheroid "An oblate spheroid is a surface of revolution obtained by rotating an ellipse about its minor axis (Hilbert and Cohn-Vossen 1999, p. 10). To first approximation, the shape assumed by a rotating fluid (including the Earth, which is "fluid" over astronomical time scales) is an oblate spheroid." As we all know, not everything said or read is to be interpreted literally. The first image to appear when searching "Oblate Spheroid" in Google search, and would you look at that.. It looks like a regular old sphere. So let's get a few things straight. An oblate sphere and a sphere can be practically identical, or not at all. Let's imagine a pizza chef tossing a ball of dough into the air. As he tosses it, the ball goes from spherical, to a slightly flattened shape. This flattening is due to the angular momentum of the dough. The moment the ball of dough becomes flattened and warped at its equator, it becomes an oblate spheroid. (Same as if you add .01mm to opposite sides of a square, it will technically be a rectangle) Even though it is nearly identical to its beginning state. However, as it keeps spinning, it flattens out more and more, until it becomes a delicious disk of pizza goodness. Slap some cheese and sauce on there and you've got yourself one tasty science experiment. I digress. Anyways, the warping of an objects equator is highly dependent upon its angular momentum, size, etc. and because the earth is not made of dough, it doesn't quite flatten out completely. However, it does warp slightly around its equator. This work was presented by Isaac Newton 4 centuries ago, and has been verified nearly just as long ago. (Minus the pizza analogy). And because we know the laws of physics are the same for any observer in any reference frame (thanks to Einstein), we know the same laws that apply to the pizza dough on earth also applies to planets, moons, or any object with an angular momentum. That's right .. Our moon is an oblate spheroid as well. Now say you wanna post up that delicious pizza onto the IG because that's what any normal person would do .. Just because you put that Valencia filter onto it doesn't mean that it's a FAKE pizza. It just means it was edited or filtered to look better! NeilDeGrasseTyson dough oblate oblatespheroid earth pearshape The bulge around the equator is approximately 42km. Compared to a 25,000 mile circumference, this is hardly noticeable. Nevertheless, it is there. Science > Opinion
