    What causes GBAtemp's massive obsession with the number 9000. ("OVER 9000" for example). Everything seems to have a 9000 or a 9001 in it...
    I just can't think why???

    Is this a joke?

    The Battle of Thermopylae is the answer anyway...

    Don't know about here, but thanks to the penetration of 300 on other boards people took the meme and implemented in with Leonidas. In my experience at least most people who've never heard of DBZ but know the meme recognise it by way of 300.

    I am glad you saw that video, however it was not directed to you, rather others on this wonderful site.
    second of all, I dont care that i spelt your name wrong... that and your video featured worthless bloat as compared to the video that had already been posted above.
    good day

    Well it's probably your fault then, probably used the wrong search terms. It might not help you directly, but if it redirects me to a site/forum where I can find the solution of my problem, it's also good in my book.

    I was under the impression that everyone on the Internet knew about Over 9000. Also the "All Your Base" meme, which was popular around the same time.
