8 minutes

8 minutes is not cemented yet......but its a possible candidate: see LG15 today for articles on 8 minutes - it could also fit under 436--modelmotion 13:15, 6 June 2007 (CDT)

>WEll... the 436 actually occurs in 8 minutes to everyone else, but to the attacked it can be days...

I think it is the other way around, the absent commenter is gone for days to everyone else, but when they check their own watch upon returning, only 8 minutes have passed.~ QtheC 23:47, 6 June 2007 (CDT)

I agree that Q has the correct interpretation of the 8 minutes. According to the myth Joe was experimenting with a universal time zone but something went wrong. I believe that he thinks he estimated the location of the 436 and that caused the experiment to go wrong.--modelmotion 01:06, 7 June 2007 (CDT)


The word Breeniversisms does not exactly roll off the tongue. Perhaps Breenivism or Breenirism should be considered as alternatives.--modelmotion 18:12, 6 June 2007 (CDT)

I like the alternative Breenivism, but have trouble remembering it now that my brain is locked onto Breeniversism. It rolls. Just say Breeniverse, then say ism. Also, the alternatives might complicate future discussions of Breenivision, Breeniderision, and Breenyincision. And what of Breenism and Breeism and Brism and Bism? Let us not mire ourselves in Breenyindecision.

Hey, this reminds me - we need to add "Breenisnacks" to the list. ~ QtheC 05:43, 7 June 2007 (CDT)

"Breeniverse, then say ism' - oh thats, that really helps a lot. I think that should probably go on the main page because I have been going around saying Breeniwhatevers for the past few days. Now i understand the derivation I think i can master it.--modelmotion 15:51, 8 June 2007 (CDT)


Tom and Katie, Becks and John should make it onto the list in some context. Tom first came on the scene when connections were drawn between Crowley and L.ron Hubbard, the leader of Scientology. Some speculated that Tom may even participate in the ceremony and that might even lead to some kind of mystical baby. Katie, Becks and John all entered the scene as time went bye and have played various roles in the continuing saga of Tom and LG15. Most have speculated that these are well known celebrity references.--modelmotion 15:38, 8 June 2007 (CDT)

This sounds like it needs it's own page to explain & flesh out, but you should add an entry (or entries?) on the Breeniversisms page and link to the details. This is just the kind of thing that is great to have explained ... obscure references that newer folks wouldn't understand. ~ QtheC 17:01, 10 June 2007 (CDT)

The Great War

"minor squabble between those that prefer butter on their toast (comments) and those that prefer toast under their butter (forums)" Because its very nature was highly divisive I am not even sure that "The Great War" should be talked about here. However, to characterize it as a minor squabble does not accurately portray what happened or its consequences which are still felt today. This was a major battle between two groups who have an intrinsically different view of the world and how order should be sustained. It lasted several days and there were many casualties. It has resulted in deep divisions between and within communities that still have an impact today. Understanding "The Great War" is fundamental to understanding the social dynamics of Today we live at peace but "The Great War" will never be forgotten although many people have moved onto respecting and appreciating the differences between LG15 communities and the people who live in them. Please do not disrespect the memory of those who have struggled to achieve all this by characterizing it as a "minor squabble"--modelmotion 11:05, 9 June 2007 (CDT)

Fair enough, and thanks for the clarification. rosieiswatching suggested on the blog that "The Great War" be added to the list. I think it makes sense to include because it is one of those things that people reference without explaining what it is. Unfortunately, I don't know what it was about first hand, only by inference, and that it had something to do with comments vs. forums. ... so feel free to update the "definition" with something that is more appropriate than the joke about butter and toast, which was really just a placeholder. ~ QtheC 16:55, 10 June 2007 (CDT)

I put in a new definition, mentioning differences between Forums users and Comment board users but saying little more than that. Feel free to refine it. Also, it would be good to add "first use" information. ~ QtheC 22:00, 12 June 2007 (CDT)

I think what you have should do for now. Its low key but still factually accurate. Thanks--modelmotion 17:56, 13 June 2007 (CDT)

Cassie Curse

The "Cassie Curse" is a relatively knew term to me but as I understand it, its a warning to fan video makers not to get too close to and LG15 story line or you risk being "outed" as non canon. The Creators have stated that they will tend to "out: a video if "we think it is necessary to avoid confusion that will eventually harm or interfere with the story we are telling"--modelmotion 06:19, 13 June 2007 (CDT)


sfs = "so freaking skilled" came into being when Kelseygirl15 posted sfs on comment 436 on the "Going Home video". There was a race for the 436 in this video because Joe already had "First" and wanted to see what happed if he also got "436". However some fans feared that such an action would lead to a rip in the space/time continuum.--modelmotion 21:29, 16 June 2007 (CDT)

Some odd hours ago, deviant told us all to do the new vid shimmy, and when asked what a ’shimmy’ was, someone replied that it was also known as the boob shake. So, now I guess we’re supposed to shake our boobs, instead of doing a dance.
