'Cause I need to know
Maybe I am the only stupid one here, but I've always wondered what the hell did "meme" actually mean. So I asked Emma, and she looked it up.

meme
Pronunciation: 'mEm
Function: noun
Etymology: alteration of mimeme, from mim- (as in mimesis) + -eme
: an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture

So, a meme on LJ is something that one person posts, and then half the world does it and reposts it. So ha!

If this was a powerful insight for someone else besides myself, please tell so, and I won't feel so stupid.

And here is a Meme for you all: (thanks to Jeanna)


I'M 54 PROOF. HOW DRUNK ARE YOU?


And my friend Lisa O, whom I made come over to drive me to the doctor's, took that test and got this:


I'M 128 PROOF. HOW DRUNK ARE YOU?

Do I trust her driving? :)

Current Mood: epiphanized
