I nominate this one: i hate everybody...

You will need a few days to get through this one, but it is well worth it. Some of the best PhotoShops from FGSS ever. Plus, it's really dumb!

It's a toss up between Merton's "how much sand do I need to soundproof this room" and Slvoid's "I accidently used my GF's sparkly glitter but I like it" threads.

I can't believe I just spent a half an hour reading through a good chunk of that thread. Man, that's 30 blown minutes I'll never get back.
