An internet phenomena where a computer links two people over IM - and gives each user false
It's similar to a three way call using AIM. Imagine someone mutes his own phone and then calls you. Then he calls someone else. Now you're talking to a stranger. Your phone rang and so did theirs. You think he called you and vice versa. Neither of you realize there's a third person instigating all this. This is basically the same thing, but with AIM.
AllSeeingSalmon: who are you?
Me: So you realize we're being salmoned right. And your s/n is showing up as AllSeeingSalmon.
AllSeeingSalmon: wtf are you talking about?!
AllSeeingSalmon: no this is Jim
AllSeeingSalmon: I already told you that!
The constant flow of internet phenomena across the public consciousness of the wired. The information of the memestream is widely known by members of most internet subcultures, yet remains peripheral to the mainstream.
Although LOLcats seem to be everywhere in the memestream, it is unlikely that you will hear the meteorologist on your local news say he's "in ur dopplr, predictin' ur stormfronts."
A word from Bungie.net's off topic Flood Forum quickly growing in popularity. Originally a typo of Mind, and used in the context of "Prepare to have your ming blown," to much hilarious response.
Since then it has been used in place of Mind in "Mind = Blown", as some kind of superpowerful being (OBEY THE MING), and many other strange ways (Ming is Truth. Truth is Ming).
Might have potential for a real meme, or internet phenomena.
User 1: Prepare to have your ming blown!
User 2: Is that what they're calling it nowadays?
User 3: Ming?
User 4: I WANT A MING
A spin off of the internet phenomena known as rick rolling (or rickrolling) which is itself an offshoot of duckrolling. Dicerolling is a prank in which one posts a seemingly relevant link only to actually have the reader end up at a video of dice rolling around.
I was dicerolled the other day. That link said it was about weight loss, but it was just dice.

v. A strange phenomena that usually occurs late at night when you are surfing the web. You are very tired or in an altered state of mind and feeling very zen, meditative. As you surf, you find yourself pondering deep questions about yourself, life, other people, and the world around you; you search for answers; use the internet to search your soul
Last night I was really, really tired and on the internet... I had this wicked philosurfing session.
I found out why I am depressed... then stared at hundreds of random pictures and pondered who created them; what they mean in a different person's eyes. What do they mean to me? I took 23 quizzes that made me realize things about me that I never even realized. I laughed; I cried. Then, when I eventually slumped off to bed, heart racing fast and unable to sleep, I realized I had just gone to another realm of reality. No drugs attached.
I searched the web as I searched myself, man
