  • 04/01/13--19:26: Oda Nobunaga
  • About

    Oda Nobunaga was the initiator of the unification of Japan under the shogunate in the late 16th century, which ruled Japan until the Meiji Restoration in 1868. He was also a major daimyo during the Sengoku period of Japanese history. His work was continued, completed and finalized by his successors Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu. He was the second son of Oda Nobuhide, a deputy shugo (military governor) with land holdings in Owari Province. Nobunaga lived a life of continuous military conquest, eventually conquering a third of Japan before his death in 1582. His successor, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a loyal Oda supporter, would become the first man to unify all of Japan, and was thus the first ruler of all Japan since the Ōnin War.

  • 04/01/13--19:34: 10% of Brain Myth
  • About

    The 10% of brain myth is the widely perpetuated urban legend that most or all humans only make use of 20%, 10% or some other small percentage of their brains. It has been misattributed to people including Albert Einstein. By association, it is suggested that a person may harness this unused potential and increase intelligence.[1]

    Origin

    According to a related origin story, the 10% myth most likely arose from a misunderstanding of neurological research in the late 19th century or early 20th century. For example, the functions of many brain regions are complex enough that the effects of damage are subtle, leading early neurologists to wonder what these regions did.[2]The brain was also discovered to consist mostly of glial cells, which seemed to have very minor functions. Dr. James W. Kalat, author of the textbook Biological Psychology, points out that neuroscientists in the 1930s knew about the large number of “local” neurons in the brain. The misunderstanding of the function of local neurons may have led to the 10% myth.

  • 04/01/13--19:36: Superheroes
  • About

    A Superhero is a character in fiction possessing supernatural or extraordinary powers who serves the public and protects the peace. The most common powers a superhero can possess are flying, super strength, power of the elements, or enhanced senses. Most superheroes have bases and battle supervillains in the name of justice.

    Origins

    The first superhero as we know them is Superman. Superman helped catapult DC Comics and superheroes into the mainstream and was later joined by other heroes Batman,Wonder Woman,Green Lantern,The Flash and others. Another company named Marvel, back then called Timely, grew in popularity with characters such as Spiderman and Captain America.

    Spread

    Comics became more mainstream during World War II, likely because people wanted escapism into simple Good vs Evil stories, in which the heroes faced certain victory over the Axis. Comics and their heroes left the mainstream past WWII, and comics slipped into nerd culture for a very long time. During the late 70s, the Superman film painted superheroes in a more serious light and catapulted these characters to the big screen. These days, superhero films often have some of the highest yields.[1]

  • 04/01/13--19:56: Toilet Papering
  • About

    Toilet papering is the act of covering an object, such as a house or another structure with toilet paper. This is typically done by throwing numerous toilet paper rolls in such a way that they unroll in mid-air and thus fall on the targeted object in multiple streams.

    Legal Status

    In some states in the United States, such as California and Virginia, toilet papering is considered an act of mischief orvandalism. Yet in some states, such as Texas and Minnesota, it is legal and cannot be fined. However, if property damage occurs in Texas due to the toilet papering, the vandalism can be considered a crime of theft depending on the value of the damage.

  • 04/01/13--20:13: Berlin Wall
  • About

    The Berlin Wall was a barrier constructed by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany) starting on 13 August 1961, that completely cut off (by land) West Berlin from surrounding East Germany and from East Berlin.[1]

    The Fall
    The fall of the Berlin Wall happened nearly as suddenly as its rise. There had been signs that the Communist bloc was weakening, but the East German Communist leaders insisted that East Germany just needed a moderate change rather than a drastic revolution. East German citizens did not agree.[2]

  • 04/02/13--14:18: Dufnering
  • About

    Dufnering is a photo fad in which participants are photographed slouching against a wall while appearing dazed or exhausted. The fad was inspired by a picture of professional golfer Jason Dufner leaning against a wall and looking subdued while visiting a youth and family center in Irving, Texas.

    Origin

    On March 28th, 2013, video journalist Christine Lee took a photograph of American golfer Jason Dufner slouching against the wall during his visit to the Salesmanship Youth and Family Center (shown below). The same day, Twitter[4] user David Watkins tweeted the photograph which was subsequently picked up by the Gawker sports blog Deadspin.[1]



    Spread

    On the same day, Redditor chinquentes28 submitted the photo to the /r/funny[5] subreddit, where it received over 7,300 up votes and 100 comments in the following four days. Also on March 28th, 2013, pro golfer Keegan Bradley tweeted the photo saying “This is the best picture ever.”




    Bradley’s Twitter followers immediately began tweeting photos of themselves mimicking the slouched pose with the hashtag “#dufnering.” That evening, golf tournament news site Back9network[6] published a slideshow of notable Dufnering photos. According to the Twitter analytics site Topsy,[7] by the end of the day, there were more than 17,400 tweets using the hashtag “#dufnering.” On March 29th, Keegan Bradley tweeted a photo of himself and fellow pro golfers Dustin Johnson and Brandy Snedeker sitting on a golf green in Dufner’s slouched pose. In the next several days, the photo fad received additional media coverage from many other golf blogs and news sites, including Deadspin,[8]ESPN,[9]The Huffington Post,[10] American Golf[11] and CNN.[12]

  • 04/02/13--17:01: Hype Train


  • About

    Hype Train is a slang term popular within the video gamer community to express the excitement experienced when something new from a popular franchise or development company is first announced, including new games, movies, TV series or other related merchandises. Image macros containing the phrase like these are usualy shared in comments on gaming news sites and forums to show one’s support of the hype. Alternatively, if the object at hand fails to live up to the hype, it can be said that the Hype Train has crashed.

    Origin

    The term was used as early as November 26th, 2002 on the gaming review site IGN[1] in a review of the Japanese version of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire[2] which was not released in the US until March 2003. Author Craig Harris explained that they received copies of the game to “get the hype train moving,” noting that he had trouble navigating through it as he did not speak Japanese. His review also suggest that Nintendo products print money, which was later popularized in the 2004 Newgrounds flash Decline of Video Gaming 2.[3]

    Nintendo today sent us a copy of both Japanese versions of Pokemon for the Game Boy Advance, most definitely to get the hype train moving early. But it’s not like the game’s going to need the hype, since releasing the game is, essentially, a license to print money for the company.

    Spread

    By March 2004, the term had expanded outside of the gaming community, as it was used in a comment on a blog post noting that the popularity of programming language SmallTalk was “derailed by the Java hype-train.”[4]

  • 04/02/13--20:08: Spoderman
  • The meme is characterized by poorly done drawing and words spelled incorrectly. The design of the meme is often adapted for other iconic characters such as Hitler or Kratos. Meme became popular on Facebook about 2012.

    ORIGIN (Complete text):
    No one knows the exact origin, but many say that it was because a child posted his drawing of Spider-Man in a Brazilian forum, but it was a very poorly done drawing, just like the figure of the meme, and, as if not enough, the child wrote “Spoderman” rather than “Spider-man”, and posted a topic poorly written, full of mistakes in Portuguese (the language of the forum). Therefore, all involving the meme is written as the child wrote on the topi.
