a piece of garbage, also a piece of trash. Frequented by idiots. Maintained by fags. It's members feel they have figured out the meaning of life, claiming they are humanity in it's purest form, (see bullfuck ) when a two year old on crack has a better philosophy on the human condition. They use these stupid meme things, that make no sense whatsoever and anyone with a half a string (see string theory ) of an electron of an atom of a braincell in their head, wouldn't find them funny in the least and laughing at them is usually done to improve ones own rep. On the site itself, questionable material is posted anonymously (corpses, kiddy porn, homocides) and the folks over at 4chan join together in a hearty laugh, because they're so ruthless and uncaring (yeah sure). They are all about as assimilated as a scientologist mudkip being bel-air'd in the fort-harrison hotel, hooked up to over 9000! e-meters. That is 4chan in it's purest form.

F. A. Got: Say John, did you check out 4chan yet?
John: No, why would I go there? That's where ALL the fags are.
F. A. Got: Listen just divide by zero and longcat is lon...
John: *shoots Mr. Got*
F. A. Got: Yoooo killed mi!
John: One down, a legion to go.

you have just entered the very heart, soul, and life force of the internet. this is a place beyond sanity, wild and untamed. there is nothing new here. "new" content on 4chan is not found; it is created from old material. every interesting, offensive, shocking, or debate inspiring topic youve seen elsewhere has been posted here ad infinitum. we are the reason for "not safe for work". we are the anonymous army. cross us and you will fail. anonymous is everywhere. you depend on us every day. we bag your groceries, we fix your computers. anonymous sees you before you see him. sitting at desks around the world right now is a nameless, faceless, unforgiving mafia composed of the best of the best.

we are 4channers. the people devoid of any type of soul or conscience. products of cynicism and apathy, spreading those very sentiments daily. anonymous is the hardened war veteran of the internet. he does not forgive or forget. we have seen things that defy explantions. heard stories that would make any god-fearing, law abiding citzen empty their stomach where they stand. we have experienced them multiple times and eagerly await their return.

4chan is a place of sheer genius and utter stupidity, and there is often a thin line dividing the two. here you will see a state of mind that exists in most human beings, but is rarely if ever shown. this is a place where taboos do not exist. 4chan cannot simply be regarded as a simple website or imageboard. it is so much more than code. 4chan is alive and constantly changing. this is a subculture, a self-governing sect of the world. rich in history and foundation. to become a 4chan user is to speak a different language. to leave behind any methods of conventional thinking you once knew.

there are things here that you will not understand and things you never will understand. if you cannot accept this then GTFO now. because there is no turning back.
this is 4chan
this is /b/

4chan.org is the absolute hell hole of the internet, but still amusing. Entering this website requires you leave your humanity behind before entering. WARNING: You will see things on /b/ that you wish you had never seen in your life.

A message board and image board on the Internet where people congregate to post various kinds of pictures, flash animations, and discuss things such as anime. It is the English version of the original Japanese board with a similar system: 2chan.

The system that 4chan uses is Anonymous, so one can safely post one's opinion without worrying. One can use a name and a tripcode (a # followed by a 'password') to gain 'status' on 4chan.
Did you see that insane Flash movie on 4chan?

An image board in which jaded and cynical internet users compete to see who can be the biggest asshole.

Imagery on 4chan ranges from funny and clever, to "shocking" gore and morbid type imagery, to paedophile humour and other inanely retarted crap.

4chan users have invented their own language in an attempt to create a psuedo-culture, much in the same vein as the emo, and the lolcats people. You will typically see words like "Moar" and "newfag" plastered across the boards. Whilst those of us looking objectively at 4chan might think "Stop slaughtering the English language you illiterate fuckhole", such words are apparently used to communicate within this E-community.

Many users of 4chan are passionately defensive about the website, and often praise it as a tight knit global community and place for people to communicate whatever they want, uncensored. Others see it as a chaotic cesspit where people with no personality or ideals can vent uncreative cynicism and pretend they're clever.

Typical thread in 4chan:
User 1 posts a gif of a petite Asian girl smothering fecal matter all over her face.
User 2 responds with "Sauce"
User 3 responds with "Moar"
User 4 responds with "fap fap fap"
User 5 responds with "This is the first time i've been to this website... haha you douchebags are fucking lame as hell.
User 6 responds with "must be newfag"

The source of all that is evil and wrong on the Internet.

If you've ever seen something on the Internet that made you contemplate suicide (or snap and become a serial killer), it probably came from 4chan--and even if it didn't, you can be sure someone posted it there at some point... and people there LIKED it.
GUY: I just sold my soul to you, so... does that mean I'll spend the afterlife in a bottomless pit of eternal pain and suffering with millions of others just like me?

SATAN: You mean 4chan? No, even I'm not THAT evil. You're just going to Hell.
