    #1 Toaplan creates the Zero Wing video game.
    #2 Toaplan releases a port for the Sega Genesis console with the addition of an intro scene, which is then translated into english (very poorly) and released in the United States.
    #3 Toaplan goes out of business.
    #4 Someone from a Zany Video Game Quotes website notices the poor translation, and highlights the game.
    #5 Overclocked.org does a humorous voiceover of the Zero Wing intro in a fake Wayne Newton voice.
    #6 Dozens of game-related messageboards begin to post quotes from the parody, and images altered to show the phrase.
    #7 Most of the threads lose interest and die off quickly as the trend is pronounced dead countless times.
    #8 The Flash movie/video is released with images from the threads and music taken from the origional game someone had added the phrase "all your base" to.
    #9 AYB explosively expands to the general (non game messageboard-reading) public.
    #10 The origional site for the video is shut down within hours due to excessive traffic, and moves to PlanetStarsiege.
    #11 Lycos ponders how "All your Base" was transformed from obscurity to a top 50 search practically overnight.
    #12 Mainstream media begin to notice the trend, and stories appear in Time Magazine, USA Today, Fox News, The Los Angeles Times, Tech TV, Wired, and many others.
    #13 As the 'remix' used in the video goes from 58 hits a day to several thousand per day, mp3.com notices the track has been ripped directly from the video game and pulls the music off their site due to copyright violations. It is later returned unchanged.
    #14 The trend continues to grow as it expands into nearly every corner of the web.
    #15 Large websites like Angelfire and Hewlett Packard sneak "all your base" references into their designs.
    #16 "All Your Base" is pronounced dead several times every day, yet it's 15 minutes of fame continue for some reason...

    Hackers often use it as a tag as well.

    The moral of this story is... being an idiot on the HL2 forums will get you banned.

    I can't believe Bod is bitching about it like a little girl...someone buy him a tampon.

    If you get banned then deal with it...for christ sakes.It's not like you just got fired from a job or just broke up with a girl. :|

    I don't understand, if he hates here and the people here so much, why is he so distressed about being banned?

    It'd probably do him good to spend some time away. Lower his blood pressure and everything.

    Why's he always trying to prove himself, over teh internets?

    "Hey, I just proved I have a bigger e-penis. Suck it"

    what it was, bodacious was banned, feeling he had been banned because of his views, he went to a forum that was filled with conservatives asking them to sign up here and challenge the liberals (such as Stern). it all spiralled from there..

    anyway thats what i assume.

    Yes. Crying badly. And we've found out that we are all megalomaniac discriminating fascist-liberal-nazi-d*ckheads.

    Hey, why not put that as the new title for staff members?

    Well, I don't think he'll be getting much sleep tonight judging by some of his posts.

    Oh I'm sure he's plotting new and amusing ways to make his comeback. We haven't seen the last of him.

    Some new and wacky adventures to be had. To the Bod-mobile! :bounce:

    yeah the mods should have their own post "rank", with each rank adding another word to the level of their "dictatorship"!

    start as a "forum nazi" and work your way up the "fascist nazi liberal"( I can't believe that one!!!) food chain..

    thats just classic
