Add a reference to Harold Goldberg's 2011 book with the same title[edit]

Harold Goldberg published "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US" in 2011, by Three Rivers, part of Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House. ISBN 978-0-307-46355-5 and eISBN 978-0-307-46356-2. It's a quick read, and lots of fun. Neither Mr. Goldberg nor the book have a Wiki page so no disambiguation would be needed at this time. Djhill8262 (talk) 20:12, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

I google translated it and it was gone wrong[edit]

Captain: Enjoy. ZIG! !
Captain: Hope for our future ...

Wikipedia isn't Know Your Meme. I don't think this article sets a good precedent because at what point do we draw the line on obscure and unnoteworthy 2000s memes? hjk321 (talk) 03:39, 25 November 2019 (UTC)

It certainly wasn't obscure then -- If you were on-line and perusing the English-language Internet at the time, then you had it running out your ears. I don't think it's a good idea to delete articles on things that were extremely popular fads for a few years, then faded, like Rubik's cube and Hula hoops. To put it another way, if we can have an article on Hampster dance, then we can have one on "All your base are belong to us"... AnonMoos (talk) 15:16, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
Seriously? IF there's a line to be drawn (and I'm not sure there really is, it's not like Wikipedia is running out of disk space), it's WELL past "All your base". This is not just part of internet culture, it's made its way into general culture. You might not be happy about that, but when US Congresspeople use it 20 years after it originated, it's thoroughly noteworthy. XeroxKleenex (talk) 20:33, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
@Hjk321: agree with AnonMoos and XeroxKleenex, clearly passes all relevant notability guidelines I'm aware of. - Scarpy (talk) 21:13, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
