Last year, 4chan voters/hackers rigged the vote for Time’s Influential Person of the Year, putting 4chan founder “moot” on top and spelling out the phrase “MARBLECAKE ALSO THE GAME” with the first letters of the names of the choices. This year, they put North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the number one spot, using the rest of the names to spell out “KJU GASCHAMBER”.
While the official ‘Person of the Year’ honor is an editorial one on the part of Time Magazine, for the last couple years they’ve been running an end of the year online poll to see who their readers think should be Person of the Year. And for the last couple years, 4chan has flexed their online influence to push the voting to their liking. And this year, they like Kim John Un. And who doesn’t, what with that gorgeous hair?
Anonymous 4chan trolls struck at Bieber fans recently, spreading a rumor across the internet, backed up only with faked screenshots of tweets from Entertainment Tonight and Justin Bieber, that the singer had cancer and the cool thing to do would be to shave your head to show solidarity.
For years, 4chan has a sort of formidable underground presence on the web, but fortunately for everyone, it’s been pretty much contained in the walls of 4chan.org. But with today’s release of a 4chan public API, 4chan boards can now infiltrate other websites and even apps to display content from the boards on your phone.
4chan user finds a grenade in the woods, tries unsuccessfully to detonate it. Evolution misses another one.
So this dumbass finds an old grenade in the woods, so what does he do? He takes a picture of it and then goes straight to 4chan for suggestions. He then tries several times to detonate it— pulls out the pin, puts it in the microwave, sets it on fire, hits it with a hammer and runs over it with his car. Sadly, the grenade didn’t go off and the poster survived.
Does this crap happen to anyone else?

For a few months, moot has been talking about and raising funding for his brand new non-4chan website called Canv.as, but moot was mute on exactly what Canv.as was. Well, it’s an imageboard, only with actually page styling and with the interactivity to not only post pictures, but to collaborate, using tools embedded into the site, to create silly photoshops, add stickers, text and other junk to the pics and re-upload them.
