[edit] 3 Gigabyte STUFF Attachment

It's likely that the 3GB attachment was the "Medi-a-lecrix Playa" and the video file, as most movies do not come in a .exe file, and a file of that length would have to be ridiculously lossless to warrant a 3GB file size.

Arguments for:

  • There's no other reason why it would be an .exe file; besides, it's not supported by most (or any) media players.

Arguments against:

  • It's possible that this is speculation.
  • It's possible that the file was actually 3 GB. It's possible that Homestar is a foolish duckshirt. All these things are possible, but we don't know which are true (well, we know Homestar is a foolish duckshirt) so we ought not say what it is.
  • Even if this wasn't speculation, there'd still be no reason to explain this.

Additional comments:

  • The file could be 3GB, but that doesn't explain why it's an .exe file.
    • It could be a self-executable video. Such a thing is possible, and I'm sure they exist in the real world.
      • DUH. That's what I've been saying all along. If you check out the easter egg, you'll see what I'm talking about. It is a self-executable video. It executes in Medi-a-Lectrix Playa.
        • There may be a miscommunication here. The original fact is worded in such a way that the .exe contains the Medi-a-lectrix Playa and the video separately, which are saved when you run the file or something. My comment is that the file could BE the video, which plays in its own "Medi-a-lectrix"-style window, and does not require a separate application to run. Or there are other possibilities as well. Maybe it's a self-extracting .exe for a really huge file. Maybe Homestar changed the file type because his email service rejected the .mlp (making something up) format. Who knows? It's speculation.
          • There are several things in this comment that are made obsolete by what we were shown in the toon.

Uh... That's what I'm saying.
Maybe it's a self-extracting .exe for a really huge file.
That might be plausible IF the Medi-A-Lectrix Playa didn't display "catonfire_fallingfromanairplane.exe" as the file source.
Maybe Homestar changed the file type because his email service rejected the .mlp (making something up) format. Who knows? It's speculation.
What YOU'RE saying is speculation. What I'm saying is the most likely answer to this situation.
No, it's the most likely in your point of view. NPOV is widely enforced on Wikis. And just because it's the most likely (in your point of view) doesn't necessarily make it true.
  • This would have made a better talk thread than fun fact.

[edit] I wish my girlfriend didn't leave me

The Cheat is wearing a necktie similar to Reynold's from the The Cheat Commandos.

From: Biz Cas Fri 3
Posted on: 18:41, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Arguments for:

  • The operative word is "similiar." Can anyone explain how you get a clip-on tie to stay on a stuffed The Cheat.
  • This was originally was in the inside references section. Two The Cheat's wearing red ties?!?! This is an obvious allusion by TBC

Arguments against:

  • Reynold wears a fake tie. The Cheat's is real.
  • A tie is just a tie.
  • The Cheat wears a tie because he is at the office.
  • Also, Reynold wears a tie and glasses. The Cheat's just wearing a tie.

Additional comments:

  • This would be more believable if The Cheat were also wearing glasses.
  • This would be more true if The Cheat also had the Justice Rocket Backpack Rocket Rocket strapped to his back.
  • The Cheat wears a tie because he's working in an office. Reynold wears one because he's a nerd.
  • Characters seems to have redefined roles in puppet world, The Cheat appears to be the computer guy at the office.

[edit] Dogbert?

The Cheat's necktie is also similar to that worn by Dogbert from the Dilbert comic strip, which makes sense.

[edit] Thats The Joke!

Strong Bad's computer has exploded once before this (in gimmicks), even though he says "this almost never happens to me."

From: Biz Cas Fri 3
Posted on: 17:51, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Arguments for:

  • It is an inside reference to another H*R page.
  • It isn't obvious unless you've seen gimmicks
  • It's worth mentioning for those less familiar with H*R.

Arguments against:

  • Thats what the entire joke is. This is a case of "captain obvious."
  • As listed below, Strong Bad says the aforementioned line before his computer explodes.
  • ...even though he says "this almost never happens to me?"

Additional comments:

  • Jokes aren't funny if they have to be explained...
  • Since he says this "almost never happens to me" BEFORE the computer explodes, doesn't that make this fun fact false, and therefore automatically should be rejected?
    • Read all the way to the end of an item (including all proposed revisions) for the status of that item.

Proposed revision:

"This almost never happens to me" refers to gimmicks and virus, the other cases of Strong Bad's computer being "dead."

Arguments for:

  • It is an inside reference to another H*R page.
  • It isn't obvious unless you've seen gimmicks
  • It's worth mentioning for those less familiar with H*R.
  • A wiki is an encyclopedia. An encyclopedia is not written for the informed, it's written for the uninformed.

Arguments against:

  • Still obvious.

Additional comments:

  • Hey, rather than a fun fact, this could become an inside reference.
    • If by inside reference you mean Running Gag, that's the plan. See way below.
      • Oh okay.

Proposed revision:

"This almost never happens to me" refers to gimmicks, the other case of Strong Bad's computer exploding.

Arguments for:

  • This revision remains consistent to Strong Bad's reference to the "explosion" and makes an inside reference to only the one email.

Arguments against:

Additional comments:

  • Read the transcript; when SB says this line his computer has not yet exploded!
  • Perhaps Flagrant System Error should be expanded and renamed to include instances of SB's computer malfunctioning in any way. Then we could add a link to Running Gags on these pages.
  • If we want a reference to exploding computers, then the line "That's the worst computer explosion I've ever seen!" would be better.

Proposed revision:

This is another instance of Strong Bad's Computer Malfunctioning.
  • This is now in the Running Gags Category. Unless someone raises a serious objection, it will be automatically accepted soon.
  • No probalo here.
  • no probalo here either.
  • I don't think we need to post in this part unless we do have a problem (Which makes me a hypocrite, because I don't)
