A few months before dancing baby appeared, there was a AVI uncompressed video of a 3D animation featuring a green alien emotionally performing “I will survive” only to be crushed by a falling disco ball. It spread like wildfire at the office and nearly got me fired from my first job as a sysadmin fresh out of school. Everyone started forwarding the accursed file, which was huge by hardware standards those days, the Ms Exchange servers diligently replicating the file for every forwarded email, clogging the net pipes and crashing Exchange services for almost a day. Since then, I’m glad the internet spawned Facebook as a container for time and resource wasting stupidity in the form of WAV files and PowerPoint presentations.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
