Here is some interesting data on rickrolls.  I wonder what causes the spike in April 2008?

It's because Youtube made all videos on their front page redirect to the rickroll video that was posted by YTRickRollsYou.

Well I have a small bunch of friends who actually knows Rick Astley, 4chan and the like. We even attempted to go on /b/ one time at school. But still, as what DJ said, the majority of people I know are more interested in hot chicks and beer.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

x.x We were chatting about /b/ around a friend of ours who hadn't been.  He asked what it was, and we told him how bad of an idea it is, never to go, and he would regret it.  He went.  He has been scarred.

Lol SirCmpwn ;D

My first venture on /b/ and 4chan was 5 years ago when Leofox posted a link to 4chan in #omnimaga and it had cock pics x.x. It was the first thing I saw on 4chan so I never really went there afterward. :P

Here is some interesting data on rickrolls.

Just out of curiosity, I looked up a map of Internet Users By Country. As you can see by comparing the maps, China has a disproportionally low number of rickrolls for the number of Internet users it has. Thus, all Omnimagans need to do their part to help educate those poor people of the benefits of Rickrolls. I will be starting a Rickroll China campaign to help resolve this pressing issue.

It's not really a part of the language - it's a thing that's discussed pretty much only on the internet. It's when you give a link to someone, saying that it leads to something interesting, but it leads to the song "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley.

Yeah it's an internet meme. If you have heard about Chocolate Rain, duckroll, 2girls1cup, All your base are belong to us, 13375p34k, trololo, The Game and that stuff then you might get an idea of what it is. The TI community also got local memes such as Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator on ticalc.org and both the peanut bag given to new member and Netham45 being a blue lobster on Omnimaga.

The Starcraft prank in Omnimaga arcade is a rickroll.

Those memes are probably not very big in Korea. Where I live, barely anyone even know what is the Internet. X.x

Except that you have only been inactive for a week and this thread is almost a month old. ;D

That said, the post rate was already pretty high around early October, though (later it slowed down slightly I think)
