  • 07/07/17--09:47: Angela Merkel
  • About

    Angela Merkel is the Chancellor of Germany, the de facto leader of the European Union and considered the leader of the free world.

    History

    Born in 1954 in Hamburg, West Germany, Angela Merkel was the daughter of a Lutheran pastor named Horst Kasner and Herlind, his wife, a English and Latin teacher. In her adolescence, Merkel joined the Free German Youth, the youth movement of the Socialist Unity Party. She went to school in East Berlin, where she became flueen in Russian, winning awards for her mastery of the language as well as mathematics. From 1973 to 1978, she studied physics at the University of Leipzig, and later, received her doctorate in quantam chemistry from the Acadmey of Sciences in Berlin-Adlershof.[1]

    Following the fall of Berlin Wall, she joined the Democratic Awakening, which later merged with the East German Christian Democratic Union (CDU). In 1990, she ran for public office and was elected to the Bundestag, a legislative body of the German federal government.[2]

    Leader of the Opposition

    On April 10th, 2000, Merkel became the first female leader of a German party, the CDU. Her win was a shock to many within the party, given that Merkel is a centrist Protestant in a male-dominated socially conservative party with Catholic roots. However, her campaign for a fresh-start for the party won out.

    Merkel quickly became popular among Germans, who wanted her to run for Chancellor in 2002. After winning re-election that year for the CDU head, Merkel became Leader of the Opposition in the Bundestag, favoring reform for Germany’s economic and social systems in an effort to make the country more competitive on the world stage and to strengthen ties to America.

    Chancellor of Germany

    On November 22nd, 2005, Merkel became the Chancellor of Germany. Following a stalemate election, the SPD grand coalition approved her leadership. She has since won three subsequent elections.

    During the 2016 European migrant crisis, Merkel’s profile rose throughout the world, she ended the enforcement of EU regulations for asylum seekers and pledged to give general refuge to Syrians feeling civil war.

  • 07/08/17--10:30: Hibiki the Hibiki
  • “Hibiki” was originally the name of a Japanese Destroy or Kantai Collection character “Hibiki”, it was not originally a meme but because of a comment said by a Google Plus user named “Hibiki”.

    “No. I’m Hibiki-” said by Hibiki, another user misunderstood the comment and started butchering the name then a bunch of other users started to butcher it as well. The users then went onto Hibiki’s posts and started to spam her name everywhere in her posts, of course the original user Hibiki got annoyed and stated that she would “butcher them with a butcher knife if they don’t stop butchering her name”. The meme started to spread every where on Google Plus posts, it then was sneaked into a Google Plus Anime community and started to widespread, it also started to spread on Twitter but it received no attention since it was unknown. Hibiki stated that the comment she said was misunderstood so she tried to explain to the users what the comment actually meant.

    And so the meme kind of went downhill and started to lose it’s interest.

    Overview

    The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest is an annual food competition held on Independence Day in Coney Island, New York. The contest has launched the competitive eating careers of Joey Chestnut, Takeru Kobayashi, Matt Stonie and more.

    Background

    According to legend, on July 4th, 1916, Jim, an Irish immigrant, and three friends held the first, unofficial hot dog eating contest at Nathan’s Hot Dogs in Coney Island. According to Jason Fagone’s book, Horsemen of the Esophagus: Competitive Eating and the Big Fat American Dream, Mullen argued with his friend about who was the most American, deciding that a hot dog eating contest would prove their patriotism. Mullen finished 13 Nathan’s franks in 12 minutes. The contest has been held every year since then, except for 1941 in protest of the war in Europe and in 1971, “when it was canceled as a protest to civil unrest and the reign of free love.”[1]

    However, while this has been cited by The New York Times as the founding of the contest, Nathan’s Hot Dogs has said that the company has no evidence of the contest before the 1970s.[2]

    Developments

    According to Nathan’s, the first official Hot Dog Eating Contest took place on July 4th, 1972, where Jason Schechter ate 12 hot dogs to win.[3] Throughout the 70s, Nathan’s held the event intermittently, and occasionally on other holidays, such as Memorial Day and Labor Day.[4] However, since 1978, the contest has been held annually on the 4th of July.

    In the late-90s, The Hot Dog Eating Contest exploded in popularity thanks to six-time champion Takeru Kobayashi. Kobayashi shattered records in his first contest in 2001, where he ate 50 hot dogs, doubling the previous record of 25. Additionally, he introduced various techniques to the sport, allowing participants to more hot dogs and effectively helping competitive eating and the Hot Dog Eating Contest grow in exposure. In 2007, roughly 50,000 people attended the contest.



    Kobayashi left the competition in 2009, after he refused to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating, who sanctions the contest. However, in 2011, Kobayashi competed unoffically, by holding a private competition and beating champion Joey Chestnut’s record.[5]

    In 2011, Sonya Thomas became the first Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest for Women champion, consuming 40 hot dogs in 10 minutes. She has since won the contest four times.

    Since Kobayashi has stopped competing, the running champion has been Joey Chestnut, who set a record in 2017, eating 72 hot dogs.



    Notable Figures

    Matt Stonie

    The 2015 champion and frequent competitor, Matt Stonie has become a popular YouTuber, recording and uploading various eating challenges. Joining YouTube on August 23rd, 2012, he has amassed more than 2.8 million subscribers and more than 546 million views as of July 2017.

    About

    The Truth About Sans / Sans Is Ness refers to a video produced by The Game Theorists, where Matthew Patrick presents a theory that the 2015 indie role-playing game Undertale is connected to the 1995 Super Nintendo role-playing game Earthbound, focusing on the theory that Sans from Undertale is the same character as Ness from Earthbound. Shortly after the video was released, the theory got mocked and criticised online.

    Origin

    On February 9, 2016, MatPat uploaded “Game Theory: UNDERTALE– Sans’s SECRET Identity!” to The Game Theorists’ channel. Since then, the video has accumulated over 7.4 million views, and has a mostly positive reception on YouTube with 192,000 likes and 18,000 dislikes.

    Spread

    As a reaction to the video, Toby Fox, the creator of Undertale, tweeted on his now-defunct @FwugRadiation account “Fan theories are fun but I feel embarrassed whenever someone calls attention to something I did when I was 16”[1], which did not disprove the theory, but was more a response to MatPat’s inclusion of Toby’s Earthbound Halloween Hack in the video. As a reference to the theory, SiIvaGunner, a channel which uploads “high-quality rips” of video game music (which are actually just SoundClown remixes of the songs they claim to be) sometimes uses Undertale tunes in Earthbound rips, and vice versa. According to the SiIvaGunner Wiki page for “Sans Is Ness”, major criticism of MatPat’s video points out that he jumped to far-fetched conclusions, had logical errors, and ignored all the evidence that didn’t support the theory[2]. On November 15, 2016, SiIvaGunner fan-channel TimmyTurnersGrandDad uploaded a rip titled “I Believe I Can Fly – Space Jam”. The remix replaced the words “I can fly” with MatPat’s voice saying “Sans is Ness”, and garnered over 12,000 views.

    Parody Twitter account Game Theory Rejects[3], which has over 26,000 followers as of July 2017, frequently makes reference to the theory, with each related tweet gaining an average of 200 likes.
