Lets grow a human - When someone starts a thread with a crappy starter image one of two things can happen. The OP will be mocked and his thread will fall downward into obscurity or the thread will take on a life of its own and the OP will run from his beautifully flawed creation like a comedic Dr. Frankenstein. This is the Dr. Frankenstein one.
The Meat Ship - With that authentic nautical Age of Discovery smell.
Meteor! - When your thread goes gold it's a good idea to switch over to WaffleImages.
Let's all make some awesome space images - Now you too can design planet menu screens for Mass Effect.
Movie Title Fuck-Ups (Cinema Discusso crosspost) - I used to think Cinema Discusso was the subforum for high minded film majors who spent hours discussing the subtle nuances of cinematography in foreign films. Turns out it's just those two guys who pull the late shift at Blockbuster.
I CAN DO IT! - A true story of American ingenuity and perseverance in the face of insurmountable odds. An Ameracle, if you will.
Dear internet, thank you for the awful conjoinment artwork. Might be NWS. - It's not really worksafe in the sense that you can see people's private parts, but I don't know how your boss would react to pictures of lovers melting together into one gelatinous mass.
Myspace private pictures leak - It's ok if we see these pictures because we're all friends here on the internet even if we never sent a friend request.

my roommate made a porn movie with his girlfriend - Okay, guess you can have one more tits/ass thread. Join in on a little goon justice upon this guy's roommate.
I got on my checkered sketchers, baggie jeans and my New Found Glory hoodie - Let's go to the mall! As a teen without a purpose, I'll just chill by the fountain and look tough until the security guard shows up. If I get my allowance maybe I can pick up some bapes while I'm at it.

Looking to get into Sci-Fi
From the "But does it looked awesome airbrushed on the side of a van?" department
This thread needs your suggestions for space epics with big meaty star destroyers piloted by ubermensch blasting the stars from the sky and the women who love them. From the OP: "I don't really care if the protagonist is a walking cliche."
What a coincidence, neither do most most modern sci fi authors. Yeah, I said it, Orson Scott Card. It's out there now and can't be unsaid. Come get me if you got the balls.

The "Lovecraftian Horror" Megathread
If there's one thing internet people like more than spreading the gospel of Snowcrash it has to be Lovecraft. I don't know why, usually Lovecraft stories end with the crazed loner seeking power outside of usual societal avenues being obliterated by lightning or unspeakable horrors so unspeakable that it's best not to speak of it instead of, say, successfully installing Linux and breaking 1,000 friends on MySpace.
If you're one of the devotees of early horror master H.P. Lovecraft, stop in to tell us your favorite story or to share some authors that may write in his style. IF YOU DARE!
Any good serial killer novels?
A quiet thread that keeps to itself. You won't hear from it again until the second you wake up and your mind barely recognizes the cindberblock dropping on your skull. Then all that's left is tearing the fetus out of this generation's Sharon Tate, tribute bands by misguided middle class youths and talking heads discussing WHAT IT ALL MEANS.
Cell: The last Stephen King book I will ever suffer.
Rapidly turning into another kvetch-all thread about the Michael Jackson of horror. Me, I read Garfield.

Zach Braff for being a smug dipshit and Daniel Knauff for not finding a way to release the ending of the story as anything other than an HBO series."
