Slow day today, huh?

2003-Jul-21, 05:09 PM
Well, I am a little bored.

2003-Jul-21, 05:26 PM
With all the nukyular threads, you're bored?

2003-Jul-21, 05:35 PM
Only after I've replied to them, which is the state now.

Great thread!

AYBABTU has been in need of publicity lately. :D

In A.D. 2101
War was beginning.
Captain: What happen?
Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.
Operator: We get signal.
Captain: What!
Operator: Main screen turn on.
Captain: It's You!
Cats: How are you gentlemen!!
Cats: All your base are belong to us.
Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
Captain: What you say!
Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time .
Cats: HA HA HA HA ....
Captain: Take off every 'zig'.
Captain: You know what you doing.
Captain: Move 'zig'.
Captain: For great justice.

"All your BA are belong to us"?

2003-Jul-21, 07:19 PM
What does it mean anyway?

2003-Jul-21, 07:23 PM
"All your base" is somewhat of a cult phrase on the internet. It comes from a Sega Genesis game called "Zero Wing" which was released approximately ten years ago. The opening scene has the poorly translated dialogue I reproduced in my last post. It is basically a joke that has gotten blown way out of proportion, although the grammar is so bad that it's funny. A quick Google will get you the opening movie.

I beg to differ. All my bases are belong to or.

All your base are belong to me.

Let me just move the zig for great justice before I conquer bases said.

All Your Base Are Belong To Us! (http://www.planettribes.com/allyourbase/) Video 1 is it, on the right. Video 2 isn't as good.

Yep, it was something which got blown out of proportion but it is oddly funny and gets in your head.. Base, base, base are! Move zig! Move zig!

Heh.. =D> \:D/ -Colt

I don't believe this. Look at the poll. People have voted:

Who do all your base belong to?

Us - 8
Us - 3

Quite opinion difference! For every 'zig' move justice! All your BABB are belong to us! What you say! You are no chance make thread your time. For every know what you do.

All your base are belong to us.

I picked the bottom one (first one to do so) to be different! :D

I was going to write something witty. After the above sunk in, forget it. I may as well spell the stuff that made the northwest of the U.S.A. an icon--- kauphy. Starbucks be happy!

All your base....

2003-Jul-22, 03:52 PM
They could just click the link, you know. :-s

And that modest scene, gentlemen, is what started the "All your base" craze.

2003-Jul-22, 06:08 PM
You know, I could be a Bad PhD if all your posts were belong to me.

Here's a link to a site discussing the history of AYBABTU:


I first heard of the expression on the Planet Namek website back in 2000 (see the November 6-21 2000 entry about 1/5 of the way down the page). Such a popular phrase from such a modest and obsure scene from a relatively little known bad European translation of a Sega game.

It's kind of scary, like a virus. Reminds me of Skynet. Now that would be very ironic, AYB takes over the world and ends mankind.. -Colt

All your base are belong to us.

All your coffee are hot.

All your currency are American.

All your house built make your wood.

All your base are belong to me.

All your anti-Cassini protestor are insane.

All your NASAscam is insane.

Sorry, I can't help it. :P

All your bad astronomy are right
All your conspircy are crap
All your idiot are belong to us

Take off every hoax for great thinking

Here is the translation of AYBABTU that I came up with:

In the year 2101, an interstellar war was beginning.
Captain: What happened?
Mechanic: We were bombed, Captain.
Operator: We're receiving a signal.
Captain: What?
Operator: Activating main screen.
Captain: It's you!
Cats: How are you gentlemen?
Cats: All of your bases now belong to us.
Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
Captain: What are you saying?
Cats: You have no chance to survive, no matter how well you can use your limited time.
Cats: Ha ha ha ha...
Captain: Have every "Zig" fighter take off.
Captain: Are you sure you know what you're doing?
Captain: Move the "Zigs".
Captain: For liberty and justice.

Anyone else care to try?

2003-Aug-11, 08:35 AM
Just in case you haven't seen it already...a million freaking times.


There have been a lot of spoofs of it but they're not very funny. This one was inspired by it though, and it's quite good:

Has anyone played the actual game?

2003-Aug-12, 10:26 PM
Someone do a Phil vs Nancy AYB!
