I don't get it. Anyone got theories?
Someone explain. Please.
I guess I walked myself right into that one.
It's typically a cocked eyebrow in the general direction of inappropriate material. I think it's a high point guy that thought it would be funny.
How do you google an image?
I've had it up to here with that symbol or whatever it is. When your post consists entirely of that, and you do it 100 times without meaningful comments, you're just a troll in my eyes. No worse than responding, "I agree", or "Cool".
Agree 10000%. It was cool/funny/interesting maybe once. Even that's a stretch.
Now it's just lame and more played out than the latest Lady GaGa song.
Worst thing is the dude that posts that all the time got 50 points for his latest posting of that. Really? That's considered a quality post now, on par with MS Paint?
It needs to end. Sooner rather than later.
What about when you combine it with MSPaint?
imo, it's the perfect response to stupid threads/questions
That I can handle. At least it's fresh/original/creative in its application of the ಠ_ಠ
But just this:
.....over and over repeatedly, ad nauseum, is lame.
It's all about comedic timing. Personally I think the dude's fantastic.
To each his own, I reckon.
To me it just seems like it's being overused.
It's utterly over-done. It's just bullshit that's been brought over from Reddit, as far as I know. Interestingly, unlike most things overdone these days, it isn't used in an ironic way.
When he replies is it usually a response to something that deserves a "furrowed brow." I have yet to see him start a topic. Have you?
And let me put your concerns to rest. Him tallying 50 points for such a response has absolutely no impact to your own point stash.
Don't make it angry. Look what happened when I questioned it...
I will say it amused me the first time I saw it, now its kind of lost its novelty.
Should be tagged as Meta.
Also, it doesn't show up right for me. I just see two squares with an underscore.
you're on a Mac. If that is the case, they used the Windows characters to do this rather than finding out the Unicode characters that would make it work for everyone.
It's true. A quick googling solved the mystery for me, lol.
Also, reading material. Know your meme!
I feel like I'm caught in a Geico commercial...
I'm very happy to explain that the symbols you're referring to are an internet meme called the "look of disapproval."
Let me know if you need anything else!
I'm kind of disappointed you didn't reply with the conventional look of disapproval, "Combo Breaker"
These posts are hilarious
Also thanks to everyone who posted the explanatory links
Damn, that looks like shit. Ignore me.
words. Sometimes words can convey ideas even better than symbols you found on Reddit.
Most of the posts he's used it on don't warrant a typed response. Slow your roll, it's one of the best ways to respond to stupid posts/questions. Along the same lines of "Cool story, bro", but far superior.
HE'S RUINING THIS FORUM
DOESN'T HE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS NOTHING IN THE WORLD MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME NAMING MY DOG AFTER A MICHIGAN FOOTBALL PLAYER
It is KINDOF important...
It comes from reddit, it's the "look of disapproval".
I'm surprised there's not more redditors on here, cuz ive seen the FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU meme on here a couple times too
I like that guy. One of my faves
do I laugh out loud every time I see it? This has to stop sooner or later right?
I don't get it. I post a dissertation and get a -1. This guy posts a "look" and is making a killing. At least now I know why Dane Cook is successful....
This guy posts a "look" and is making a killing.
Perfectly worded. +1 to help redeem some of your losses.
Length != Quality
Also, funny looks are much more in the realm of great comics like John Belushi and Paul Rudd, not hacks like Dane Cook. And are you really that concerned about your points that someone else getting upvoted angers you?
In a 5-7-5 form
Will get you +1s.
But, ask yourself this:
"Is it the affirmation,
approval I need?"
in your ideas is that
for which you should seek
That we can't provide
That little bit requires
You, finding yourself
(or maybe your dissertation sucked!)
It's just funny that after someone posts a long thread bitching about stupid stuff and going on and on, and then all you get in a response is:
It's just a perfect response somtimes.
But the key word here is "sometimes". Like any good comedic meme, the use of it needs to be carefully selected so as to not wear it out.If you keep using it, it might get irritating. THATS WHAT SHE SAID!!
Absolutely. I would like to see it here and there, maybe forget about it for a while and then BAM! there it is. It's all about timing people.
And that, is what she said.
Edit: well that didn't work at all.
