    This post reserved for an explanation of dickboat. Let me drive to work, first.

    //EDIT: Updated to tell the tale of the legendary dickboat!

    At Icrontic LAN 2008, we took part in an annual event hosted by forum members CBDroege and GHoosDum wherein teams of 3 or 4 are given one hour to build a device out of duck tape that best completes a surprise challenge. This event is, unsurprisingly, called the Duck Tape Challenge, in honor of Duck brand duct tape.

    This year the teams were tasked with creating the boat that holds the most copper BBs.

    There were many designs presented, but our team (consisting of myself, ][v][AGIC & Jared) took the approach of a long, barge-like shape reminiscent of an oil tanker. It was long, low, flat, and took great pains to assure that the boat did not simply fold in half at the middle. All in all, we were exceptionally proud of our design and the way it came together.

    Such a masterpiece needed a name...

    Of Alphas & Omegas
    There is a place on the web known as 4chan. It is a wretched hive of scum and villainy that occasionally produces irrefutable and spectacular genius. All good memes are birthed on 4chan, and all good memes die on 4chan. Here are some you may have seen and/or be familiar with:
    • Lolcats
    • Over 9000!
    • The word "lulz"
    • The 40lbs box
    • The "MAN THE HARPOONS!" phrase
    • The word "moar"
    • The phrase "tits or GTFO"
    • Using "fail" or "win" to describe a person's activities
    • And more!

    In fact, the vast majority of the memes on the internet are retreads of memes that were created, lived, and died on 4chan 1-3 years before the general public started quoting them. Regarding unpopularized memes, some have not yet made it into the general consciousness, and one such meme is dickbutt:

    dickbutt.jpg

    There is no story behind dickbutt. Much like the clouds in the sky, it just "is." It was a forced meme, meaning people deliberately repeated it with no regards to context so often that everyone was just like "**** it" and started doing it too.

    Before Eric the Red, there was...
    Given that Icrontic has its fair share of /b/tards (WARNING: link NSFW), we felt it only appropriate to dub our vessel the "Dickboat" in honor of our clandestine interests.

    The venerable USS Dickboat, held by yours truly

    This leads us at last to Primesuspect's bathroom wall, where some drunken twat decided it would be for the lulz to write on it with a silver sharpie. Other drunken twats decided that continuing to write on the wall would also be for the lulz; somewhere in this grand procession of stupidity, someone thought it might be fun to commit the USS Dickboat to the wall, thereby simultaneously perverting and immortalizing the honorable vessel in a residential restroom in the heart of Warren, MI.

    The end.

    A glossary for fluff:

    ICHQ = Icrontic HQ (i.e. the house that Lincoln and I live in)
    ICHQ Bathroom = our bathroom
    Dickboat = see Thrax's explanation
  • ShortyShorty Manchester, UK Icrontian

    It is worth noting that Prime and Lincoln aren't actually a couple despite acting like an old married one.

    this will be vastly more useful when Thrax actually explains what a dickboat is. i can't stand the suspense!

    Yes we are!


    A highly dysfunctional yet ironically functional unit fused from two men with a single united purpose; the caveat is that we have minimal physical interaction. In most respects, this mirrors the conventional "traditional marriage" for all intents and purposes, except we get along better than a normal man and woman ;D

    this Icrontic LAN sounds alarmingly fun.
