What's up? I go by the name Epicgenius on Wikipedia, though you can call me "Epic" or "EG" for short (or anything that incorporates significant parts of my name that will get my attention…)[citation needed]. I am actually Chinese in real life[citation is urgently needed, but apparently it is hidden somewhere], and currently live somewhere that is cooler than where you live, even if you live where I live.[1]

The following is a really exaggerated history of me.[citation still needed, and yet this tag will flounder around indefinitely ]

He does NOT likes unicorns (specifically My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic) (no, not really) the New York City Subway people saying stupid things about foxes football being a monkey (COULD YOU PLEASE NOT ADD ANY MORE TEXT? THANK YOU!) stuff.

He has an account under the same name on Uncyclopedia but doesn't really care for it. For reasons unclear to him, he has been blocked as of 15 November 2013. He's also Epicgenius on The Test Wiki. (Yes, I really am.)

He thinks the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory in New York City sells good ice cream.

His current local time is 04:59 AM (reload). Not that he cares—he's up virtually 24/7! (Except nights, generally 10 PM to 6 AM.)

He has been referring to himself in the third person for the past four paragraphs and will now refer to himself in the first person.

Awesome fake bio

A Short and Fictional Origins Biography with No Relation to Actual People or Dogs in Real Life, Completely Written in a Third Person Perspective (NOT!)

The supposed rubber raft which Epicgenius escaped with

Epic (Genius, also genius) is a genius named Epic (Genius). Born to a genius and a genius,[note 1] in 조선민주주의인민공화국, the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, a.k.a Naughty Korea, Epicgenius fled to the other half of Korea, codenamed Nice Korea, on a five-dollar rubber boat, purchased from local Naughty Korean Lottemart stores, when he was just around 6.4 years old, and was fortunately successful! After two hours and fifty two minutes in Nice Korea, Epicgenius was finally granted official asylum in it. Epicgenius adapted to the peaceful life in Nice Korea, glad that he was free of the clutches of the Naughty Elites and their master, Kim Jong Very Very Ill. However, things took a turn when Gangnam Style was born. Epicgenius could not swallow the idea of fat Kim Jong Un lookalikes dancing and galloping like a boss (or a hoss), and decided to find further peace, in Singapore, next to Hong Kong, where the only noise was Lee Kuan (Loves) You mumbling about fertility rates (that was better than Oppa Gangnam). Contented, Epicgenius bought a one-room flat in Orchard (also known as a public toilet cubicle) for just five hundred dollars, but he was not yet 100% happy with just free water and soap and toilet bowl. Thus, Epicgenius got himself a laptop, which he cleverly swapped with his "home". Then he traded the laptop for a flower, and the flower for a chicken, and the chicken for a donkey, and the donkey for an elephant, and the elephant for a Godzilla-species dinosaur, and that for a house. This time, the house was a six room landed property in the Istana; Tony Tan liked dinosaurs, in turned out. Then, he moved to Iraq and almost instantaneously, it got bombed by some clown, so he had to go to the United States. And that's the end. Epicgenius lived happily ever after and creates crappy Wikipedia (and Uncyclopedia) articles like this.[note 2] He probably lives in Queens, New York, but isn't sure because he does not know if the world as we know it even exists (see below).

Awesome fake bio, part 2

Arrival of the Hungarians
Arrival of the Hungarians is a large cyclorama – a circular panoramic painting – by the Hungarian painter Árpád Feszty and his assistants. It depicts the arrival of the Hungarians in the Carpathian Basin in 895. It was completed in 1894 for the 1000th anniversary of the event. It measures 15 meters (50 feet) in height and almost 120 meters (400 feet) in length. Since 1995, the painting has been displayed in the Ópusztaszer National Heritage Park, Hungary.Painting: Árpád Feszty et al.

Hall of trivia, sponsored by the Epicgenius Parent Company, Inc.

  1. Skip if you are under 18: A lot of people say that vanilla sex is called such because it is bland or without "flavor", and they normally use this term to describe the missionary position or its kin. What they probably don't know is that the word vanilla derives from a Latin word via a diminutive form of the Spanish word vaina, meaning sheath as in that's what a vanilla bean pod looks like. What they might not realize is there's another word deriving from this same Latin root, and that of course is vagina, which literally means scabbard-- i.e., the sheath one puts one's sword into. Ergo vanilla sex is etmyologically appropriate and the blandness is just a coincidence.
  2. Skip if you are color blind: It is accepted that all the world's languages have words for white and black. If that language only has two words, those are them. If they have a third one it is almost always red, if they have a fourth green, and so on. In English there are only three verbs for becoming a color: To whiten, to blacken and to redden. (Golden of course, is an adjective) This means that these words must have been in such an old form of Anglo-Saxon that dates back to when "English" only had this many color words, unlike now, when it has this many.
  3. Skip if you can't understand irony at all, like really?: A lot of people think that Utopia means a good place. This misunderstanding is from Sir Thomas More's 1516 book, which described a fictional land where everything was perfect. However, what More intended the etymology to be was u- (οὐ) meaning "not" or "non", so that it would be a place that didn't exist (-topia comes from topos (τόπος) meaning "place"), a non-place. However, modern English speakers have pronounced the word utopia not like /ˈtpiə/ with an oo sound, but as /juːˈtpiə/, where the /ju/ is similar in sound to the word you as in words like euthenasia or euphony meaning good-death or good-sounding. So? So, that means that inadverntently in Modern English we have changed the meaning of "Utopia" by misunderstanding the referent, and by further mispronouncing the word, we have actually ended up giving it the meeting previously ascribed to it, i.e. a "eutopia" which would actually mean, "good place" in Greek.

A popular feature of Reddit is the "AMA" section (short for 'ask me anything'), where notable people engage in Q&A sessions with the Reddit community.[10] Within this format, Harrelson agreed to answer questions from the users of the site, who were disappointed by his answers, and his apparent misunderstanding of the format,[11] resulting in some of the site's users vowing to "boycott the flick".[12] CNET characterized one of Harrelson's responses as "sheer oozing, all-about-me-ism".[13] Josh Feldman with MediaIte shared the following perspective: "a proxy for the actor basically gave vague answers to half of the questions and in-no-way subtle plugs for his upcoming movie Rampart to the other half. It was a public relations nightmare, and while it certainly raised awareness about the movie, it definitely backfired." Feldman went on to say about the incident, "it came across as robotic and represented an inability to connect with people when it should have been insanely easy to do so." Feldman summarized the lesson learned by stating the following, "When you’re doing an AMA on Reddit, you drop the act and engage with real people. Some will be fans, some won’t, but if you’re just honest and it doesn’t seem like your answers have been planned out, people will respect you for it."[14]

  1. ^ That's New York City, if you are really interested.
  2. ^ a b c d e f g h No, it's false, and you know it.
  3. ^ Finally!
  4. ^ This was true in the 1970s and 1980s. Nowadays, it's all fixed up. No need to worry. (Except for the age of the cars and subway system. That ain't true.)
  5. ^ Also true back in the '70s, though I doubt the veracity of such a claim today.
  6. ^ Apparently.
  7. ^ But seriously though, I do edit at Rap Genius. And I consider myself epic. Just kidding, everyone does...
  8. ^ See here for why. He's really a genius and he is truly epic. Not me, though. However, I'm still interested in him. I even have a Tesla motor to prove it.
    I may be talking about the motor or a car from the car company, though. Take a guess. Hint: It's not what you think.

Spammer Bingo

Spammer Bingo is a game (duh!).

Please choose your argument if I reverted your spam.

  1. This is a new and exciting product or service and the community needs to know about it.
    Response: You should consider an advertising budget. I have little confidence in a product or service whose business strategy is predicated on free Wikipedia advertising.
  2. There are other commercial links on the page, what do you have against mine?
    Response: It's still spam. If there are other commercial links on the page, delete them. But if you put your link back, I am deleting it.
  3. Anyone reverting my links must be a shill for my competitor.
    Response: Yes that's it. Based on all the spam reversions I do, I am actually on the payroll of over 5,000 organizations worldwide. My total income generated from this job is over $10 million a year. So you should consider doing what I do rather than spamming for your piddling little product.
  4. This isn't advertising, it's knowledge. How is knowledge spam?
    Response: If it was really knowledge, you would have entered some of that knowledge into the article. Clearly your aim is not education, but making sure that your link is seen.
  5. I have a right to be on Wikipedia.
    Response: You are permitted to do many things on Wikipedia to make it better. You are generally not allowed to advertise. Further about rights, I am only aware of the United States Constitution and Wikipedia spamming isn't really mentioned. If you can point to the relevant passage in your home country's constitution or declaration of human rights, then I shall allow you to spam.
  6. I concede the link is commercial, but it has some content so it should stay.
    Response: You may find this to be a surprise, but I do give consideration to these circumstances and review the material on the link to make a decision. Before you come crying to me, consider these things. Does your content consist of two paragraphs which are more or less a basic definition or description? Does your content discuss why your particular brand is superior in the context of discussing the subject? Is your content already in the article and written by a non-commercial source? If your answer is yes, I will probably revert you. If it is no, let's discuss. If you come here and use reasons 1-5 as your main argument, you are wearing away any benefit of the doubt that I was willing to concede.
  7. Now that you have read this, you need to go back to the beginning and read the external link guidelines and How not to be a spammer. If you had read this earlier, you might not have gotten your link reverted.
  8. Why are you being so mean?
    Response 1: Because of the undying affection of {the author's} fan club. Folks like who likes to spam for hotel booking sites and User:Examcoach who spams his audio books. Of course, There is also We aren't sure what his beef is, but he is from Israel and really loves {the author's} work. This guy is also from Israel and loves my work. Did {the author} show up at a Palastinian fundraiser by mistake? A new addition to the spammer hall of fame represents a hedge fund that he wanted to spam. When the powers that be deleted his article, he attempted to delete some very notable ones in revenge. And there is this person who wants to carry out his personal grievances on Wikipedia. We are assuming he does {the author's talk page|this} because he can't afford a lawyer.
    Response 2: It's not me. Go to {the author's} talk page and ask them.

Thanks guys, your love makes it all worthwhile.
