Introduction

Over the years some threads and posters have become legendary at TJP. We will fondly couch subtle refreneces to these posts in our replies that act as in-jokes and shibboleths. Since the TJP community doesn't deliberately exclude others, some of these have been compiled here to enlighten those who are interested.

Phrases

"I know double what you all know combined"

Origin Nightwolf5523 about.com Japanese forums and migrated here. Used as a reply to any poster that claims to be an authority or expert, then proceeds make statements so obviously erroneous other newbies can pick them apart.

Words
