3.8 Breaking the First 2 Rules of the Internet

Urban Dictionary describes it best:


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 ". 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. 

Though the end is a little extreme thats the basic gist.  This is where the content of the viral Internet culture is created.   It can be refreshed time after time a reveal new content in seconds.  Besides being extremely addictive it is a fascinating form of communication and creation.
