    You'd think by now people would immediately recognize "dQw4w9WgXcQ" as being what it is, but nope. Almost a billion people have clicked it.

    Yes, I can see your point, but given I am a fanatic, I can't listen to reasoned arguments like this and will never accept such obvious proof to change my mind.

    I'm with these two princes.

    Rick Astley? Bring it on. Far better pop-music than today's crap.
