What happened to the whole "xMarkx" fad? Has it passed?

    A while back every other user was coming here with a name like xMarkxLatimourx or something like that that seemed to indicate some affiliation with a "straight edge" movement.

    Whats happened to it? Has the fad died? Have they discovered the joys of alcohol and debauchery?

    Discuss.

  4. They were all arrested in Nevada for gang related activity. And not a moment too soon, I might add.

    They got cool and put a -x at the end.

    Actually no, my x has nothing to do with that. However, it has everything to do with syntax.

    Read:

    karrot -x

    As if karrot was a program, and x was a option. Then the statement all together would initialize an instance of karrot with x option.

    No, they went to Princeton.
     
  12. Of course not. At 21 they accept the hypocrisy of their actions stop flaunting their not-to-do list. They will always be dorks.

    "xXxlame name herexXx" is still pretty popular; Mostly with the emo/goth scene kids that nobody likes though.

    Wow, mocking a drug-free lifestyle and generalizing a movement you know nothing about, real awesome.

    Grow up...

    Need a tissue?

    And a Coors Light? There's no alcohol in that, right?
