Or a soldier from the first X-Com. The stare is much more appropriate in this case.

If any of them would be the soldiers from X-Com it'd be :suicide:

and yet, committing suicide would probably take longer than it takes for the aliens to kill them.

Has anyone ever made a downs version of :commissar: where he misses and shoots somebody else? Because that would be the X-Com emote.

That's an offshoot of :slick:. The original version was called danceman.gif and was bigger:. It was too big to upload as a smilie and the thread was about getting it down to the right size. I don't think the thread was from BYOB. After the guy who made it posted it, people started making versions based off of other smilies. I remember forkbanger did a lot of work in that thread. Also, I think :slick: the smilie that we have now wasn't bought in that thread but later, only a few years ago, after someone found that thread.

Here are some of the variations I have saved. There are many, many more. That was one of the first threads I remember reading.

Whenever anyone mentions a katana in any capacity, the very next poster will talk about "what you don't know about your thousand-times-folded hanzo steel is..." Since the lines are always the same (or follow the same basic structure), I figure there has to be an origin story. Anyone happen to have a lead on this?

I'm not sure quite what you're asking, but making fun of nerds by calling it "hanzo steel" comes from the phrase being used in Kill Bill when the Bride gets a katana made by a descendant of Hattori Hanzo. She does cartoonishly badass things like slice other swords to pieces. This and the rest of katanas' depictions in Japanese Animes make Japanophiles think they're super-awesome and much better than baka gaijin European weaponry when they're really of equal quality because the extensive folding process has to be done since Japan's iron is so lovely. Goons feel the need to chime in with this little tidbit every time.

Nah, I'm pretty sure there was a thread (or at least a video) with a fat, nerdy goon(?) who tried to show off his new, battle-ready katana that everyone made fun of, who called it Hanzo steel.

You may both be right. The first Kill Bill movie came out in 2003 so it's likely that thread jokes were inspired by it.

IIRC the anime dogtits avatars came from LF but no one ever figured out who was buying them.

This video is perfect. You couldn't plan a video like this.

It starts off hilariously enough with the weird mixture of redneck and neckbeard (redneckbeard?) that results in whatever hosed up enunciation that this guy has, but then once you've accepted that, they throw in the little brother that looks like he just got back from playing banjos with Ronny Cox and Burt Reynolds. And after that settles into your mind, just as you think you've gotten all you can out of the video, the camera operator starts talking and you realize it's his mom and the tone of her voice lets you know that she has no loving idea what the internet is and thinks this is just another one for the home video collection that they bust out whenever Uncle Travis comes over and the adults get shitfaced while Evan sits around with the 10-year-olds trying to get them to watch his precious animes. To her, this is going to be the equivalent of the photos of your kids you keep in your wallet. She has no idea what the internet is about to do to her little boy.

EDIT: Holy poo poo, he's a brony, too :lol:
