They should have done a grammer check.

Wing Zero For Ever.
It's making fun of some old japanese nintendo game that was very *very* badly translated.
now I know why its good not to play soccer
but.. all your base ARE belong to us.
everyone why laugh?
That was pretty wacky...
Does it have sound and does it help to "understand" it?
It doesn't just have sound, it has German techno rock and speech that is just as badly translated!
*saves the link to be able to see it for all time*
*gets headache from watching weirdness too much*
Aaachk... that's what I get for resfuseing to come here a few days earlier. I had found this site all ready, and I was PLANNING to show every one but I guess I can't now. So blah.
Hey CT, you by chance go to the Unwashed Village?

Never heard of it.
It was sent to me via ICQ from some dude I e-met on newnet.
What a waste of productivity. Think of all the good that could have been created instead of that...
But then I wouldn't have laughed my butt off! Cool site!
It really is scary to think about how much work must have gone into creating all those images. That's what I love about being human, 25% of the race has a brain that doesn't function normal.

As much as some people may disagree with the following observations, I stand firmly by them. To organize my discussion, I suggest that we take one step back in the causal chain and raise the quality of debate on issues surrounding "All Your Base Are Belong To Us's" malignant odious sentiments. Factionalism doesn't work. So why does "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" cling to it? I've never really gotten a clear and honest answer to that question from "All Your Base Are Belong To Us". But what is clear is that it teaches workshops on classism. Students who have been through the program compare it to a Communist re-education camp. But I digress. At no time in the past did the most witless freaks I've ever seen shamble through the streets of cities, demanding rights they imagine some supernatural power has bestowed upon them. Where are the solid statistics that prove that all minorities are poor, stupid ghetto trash? I've never seen any. Yet, it takes more than a mass of unsophisticated ne'er-do-wells to act honorably. It takes a great many thoughtful and semi-thoughtful people who are willing to do what needs to be done.
While there's no use crying over spilled milk, "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" drones are unified under a common goal. That goal is to show us a gross miscarriage of common judgement. "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" insists that we should all bear the brunt of its actions. Sorry, "All Your Base Are Belong To Us", but -- with apologies to Gershwin -- "it ain't necessarily so." Think of "All Your Base Are Belong To Us's" snow jobs as being the sum of two components: a primitive component that consists of "All Your Base Are Belong To Us's" desire to create widespread psychological suffering and a voluble component that consists of everything else. We are concerned primarily with the former. "All Your Base Are Belong To Us's" witticisms are geared toward the continuation of social stratification under the rubric of "tradition." Funny, that was the same term that its forces once used to respond to this letter with hyperbolic and uncorroborated accusations and assaults on free speech.
Whether or not All Your Base Are Belong To Us should mobilize support for the special interests that dominate state and private activity ought to be a simple question, far beyond the realm of debate. However, I must ask that its apostles answer the unbalanced mendicants who reap a harvest of death. I know they'll never do that, so here's an alternate proposal: They should, at the very least, back off and quit trying to harvest what others have sown. Already, some biased yobbos have begun to perpetuate the myth that my bitterness at All Your Base Are Belong To Us is merely the latent projection of libidinal energy stemming from self-induced anguish, and with terrifying and tragic results. What bait-and-switch tactics will follow from their camp is anyone's guess. Should we sit back and let All Your Base Are Belong To Us use psychological tools to trick us into doing whatever disgusting blowhards require of us, or should we debunk the nonsense spouted by its collaborators? That choice sure sounds like a no-brainer to me.
Whatever else may be the case, it is certain that we have a right and an obligation to shelter initially unpopular truths from suppression, enabling them to ultimately win out through competition in the marketplace of ideas. But you knew that already. So let me add that my love for people necessitates that I convince the government to clamp down hard on All Your Base Are Belong To Us's communications. Yes, I face opposition from All Your Base Are Belong To Us. However, this is not a reason to quit but to strive harder. Many of us do not wish to live within All Your Base Are Belong To Us's walls of cynicism. That shouldn't surprise you when you consider that its intent is to prevent us from asking questions. All Your Base Are Belong To Us doesn't want the details checked. It doesn't want anyone looking for any facts other than the official facts it presents to us. I wonder if this is because most of its "facts" are false.
Never before have I encountered more bloatedly self-important prose than that which All Your Base Are Belong To Us produces. All Your Base Are Belong To Us says it's going to assuage the hungers of its functionaries with servings of fresh scapegoats in a lustrum or two. Good old All Your Base Are Belong To Us. It just loves to open its mouth and let all kinds of things come out without listening to how foul they sound. All Your Base Are Belong To Us thinks we want it to parlay personal and political conspiracy theories into a multimillion-dollar financial empire. Excuse me, but maybe it wants to hurt others physically or emotionally. What does it think it is? I mean, you don't need to be a rocket scientist to detect the subtext of this letter. But just in case it's too subliminal for some, let me thrust it into your face right here: It keeps saying that censorship could benefit us. For some reason, All Your Base Are Belong To Us's devotees actually believe this nonsense. It's a pity that two thousand years after Christ, the voices of heinous practitioners of priggism like All Your Base Are Belong To Us can still be heard, worse still that they're listened to, and worst of all that any one believes them. Whereas All Your Base Are Belong To Us claims that it has been robbed of all it does not possess, I claim that its writings exhibit a disregard, not merely for style, but for the truth. (Actually, like much conventional wisdom, its practices contain too much convention and not enough wisdom, but that's not important now.) And that's what writing this sort of letter is all about. It's a way to complain about execrable enemies of the people.
I didn't think it was funny when I read it on Tribes' boards either.
do u expect anyone to read that long thing, gerode?
Words bad. Colors good.
