MKM Open Thread (Mar. 6, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for March 6, 2012, the day you found out that Jessie Spano is pregnant!, which totally blew your mind, since that means she must have been eight years old when Saved By The Bell: The College Years went off the air. 

Good morning, everyone.  The MKM Balog welcomes you back to another day of chatting about comments, commenters, and - fuck, I don't know - comets.  Hey, speaking of science and shit, does it ever blow your mind that the first atomic bombs were dropped from a goddamned propeller plane?  Not because there wasn't a jet available, but because they didn't fucking exist yet.  That's right, a nuclear bomb, which still cannot be created by 90% of the nations on this planet - including those with iPads and shit - was dropped from a plane that was being kept aloft using essentially the same technology that this guy uses to stay cool.

Anyway, let's chat it up.  Nuclear physics and all that shit is totally cool, Steve_U.  Here's a Youtube clip - something else they didn't have in 1945.

  1. This is a #topten-labeled post? That makes no sense, unless...

    Pictured and videoed: top, ten.

    Look, Jessie Spano is hot, but she's not a 10.

  2. Does anyone else have a sneaking suspicion that The4thMolinaBrother and Lord Comment are the same person? That would be quite an elaborate hoax.

  3. I needs some honest to goodness assistance with interpreting a reply -- can anyone explain this to me? I feel like I'm missing something.

    2. I know that Perd is from Parks and Rec, but how does any of this relate to my comment?

      It doesn't! That's the brilliant part!

    5. It doesn't relate at all. I was making a random association in my head. Sorry for the confusion.

  5. How have I never noticed how terrible this fucking guy is before today?

    http://deadspin.com/people/DonChandlerMissed/

    Just read the first page of his commenting history. It's like one of his coworkers played a prank on him and replaced his ESPN.com or Yahoo Sports bookmark with Deadspin and he never noticed.

  6. Guy Who Does A Great Impression Of Arthur Digby SellersMarch 6, 2012 at 1:00 PM

    Derp...you remember that time that guy/those people died? Derp...I'm going to shoehorn it into a comment that a 5 year old could craft instead of actually piecing together a comment that takes time and effort. Derp...because I confuse simply lazily referencing tragedy with actual comedy. Derp...

    1. You must mean "outstanding" as in "unpaid parking tickets" or something. That's the only logical explanation for A Pimp Named Dave R being on that list.

      Delete
    2. That's pretty much right on, except for A Pimp Named Dave R, mostly because I'm not familiar enough with his work.

      Delete
    3. If this is an ordered list, I could maybe get behind it, except that I'd move Sonar Jose way up and Hit Bull Win Steak way, way down.

      Delete
    4. Was there an original list?

      Were you going to go for alphabetical, but then got to ♥ Always Winning's name and said "fuck it"?

      So many* questions.

      *two.

    5. @Anonymous

      Yes, ♥ Always Winning was where the alphabetical plan went wrong.

  9. In addition to the aforementioned commenter bracket, how about a "Legends" bracket with those who were amazing and no longer comment (Stev D, Arkansas Fred, cheese-mac, RHSC, etc.)?
