    Sorry for the "about about" part, EDiots from this era.ch should participate as well.

    I was googling pictures of whales for one of my school assignments... found one with blur hair.. and from that i found ED.

    Listen to this and read what I wrote in a Swedish Chef accent.


    On a more serious note though : That was like 50 000 beers ago. Think it was through chan4chan.

    The abos here in Australia tried to have the ED article about them (which is full of truth, thereby causing max butthurt) banned from our internets. This unsuccessful attempt at censorship was reported in the media.

    As I am naturally in favour of anything the abos don't like, I instantly became addicted to ED.

    Didn't find the forums until after Sherrod's faggotry.

    We had a similar thread before, but this is actually better (Also I suggest making it a sticky).
    Shameless copipasta from there.

    The first time I heard/read about ED was around 3 years ago, on the forums of a now defunct shock site (b0g.org). The place itself didn't have a lot of activity going on anymore, but someone linked one article (I think it was the Nigger Manual one); said site also kept going offline for weeks, so I spent more time reading ED. Never got interested on the forums until the .ch rebirth happened though.

    I asked someone on a CS:S server where they picked all their lame jokes up, then they linked me to the wiki through steam chat. I kindly thanked him then told him to fuck off.

    I found out about ED googling some kind of offensive materials, but I don't remember exactly what I was searching, I guess some jokes about niggers, not sure.

    Massive newfag at school constantly made jokes like "HURR LONG CAT IS LONG!" "ASUM FAEC" "ROFLCOPTER" so I started googling the origin of the memes, and boom ED. Then I found 4chan, and went there and lurked ED for like four years. Then I joined when ED went down.

    As our village was about to sacrifice a young child taken by us from another village during a war of spiritual cleansing, our high shaman asked the spirits how we can modernise ourselves in the face of the increasingly civilised world. As he smashed his mace down upon the sacrifice's head, its blood and brain matters sprayed across the sand and formed ED's logo. Soon after the white devil came and took all our children but in turn gave us internet connection. (Though we would have to wait a few more years before the next loli is ready for the plucking, I think it was a good trade.) Soon I found the gloriousness that is ED and here I am.

    It's been some years, but if I remember right, I googled for something obscure and found ED through that.
    No idea anymore what it was though.

    Jesus Christ it's absolutely ridiculous there nowadays. All the damned weeaboos and kids running about ruins everything for me. Not to mention the RP tards who think they run everything.

    The RPtards are the worse, holy shit. Though I do have to say the best way to troll chatango is talk about politics and watch people go off.
