Odysseus manages to return from 4chan, and Circe gives even more advice to him, preparing Odysseus for the Sirens (rickrolls disguised as links to YouTube music videos), Scylla (a six-headed computer worm), and Charybdis (a virus that divides /system32 by zero). The clan manages to bypass all three of the dangers, and only loses six members to Scylla. They arrive at Thrinacia’s website, where they were told to not spam users with sacred cows in their avatars. Odysseus’s men spam them for teh lulz anyway, causing webmaster Helios to appeal to Anon/Zeus for their deaths. Anon/Zeus smites down the clan with a brutal series of DDoS attacks, and only Odysseus is able to survive, having pressed the “Stumble!” button on his StumbleUpon toolbar.
Odysseus stumbles upon the webcam show of Calypso, who keeps him entranced for seven days. Eventually, Anon/Zeus sends Hermes to Calypso’s website, forcing the webcam show to be shut down and allowing Odysseus to escape and attempt to return home. However, webmaster Poseidon manages to stall Odysseus yet again, giving him another 404 Error Redirect to the forum of Phaeacia.
At Phaeacia, Odysseus starts a thread about his journey so far, and pleads for help from the Phaeacians. They pity him, and allow Odysseus to piggy-back on their connections to quickly return to Ithaca.net.
An asian retold The Odyssey like this for Bilbo's project.
