For now, just add/fill in data for any interesting memes/media you would like to document. As more information gets posted, rmb177 will organize them into logical groups rather than having one long list.

Downfall Parody Videos

In 2018, user rmb177 created a Downfall parody video in which Hitler explodes in outrage after finding out the statistical models the 3rd Reich developed to predict Donald Trump's tweets did not work out as planned. The video plays off of Donald Trump's tendency to go on twitter rants and pays homage to PI veterans jaguars, Rainbow Jeremy, and scottmbeckes.

After persistent prodding by Richie of PI, rmb177 finally made a follow-up video in August 2019. In this video, Hitler is infuriated with Dan Scavino and his inconsistency in retweeting Donald Trump's tweets on the potus account. It also pays homage to Richie of PI, Casper, and of course, Rainbow Jeremy.

F

When a degen responds to your comment with "F.", they are signaling you and your shares are ded. The origin of this meme is a scene from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in which you have to press the F key to pay respects to your fallen friend. See The origin of “Press F to Pay Respects”

I don't see where "x" tweets can come from

In the twitter markets, degens often make this comment when they are sure that more tweets are coming that will get the market to the next bracket, or ultimately, the highest bracket.

Nudism

Nudity is the state of avatarlessness; that is, of being an anonymous, gray silhouette without an avatar. PredictIt degens are a notoriously prudish lot, and therefore, adherence to the standards of basic public decency are strictly enforced. Article 1 of whippedcream1's Bill of Rights, while embraced by a fringe minority, flies directly in the face of this foundational notion of social cohesion.

A select few degens have permanent, non-transferable immunity from the avatar requirement:

This list of exceptions is not subject to change.

Fish tank cleaner

Fish tank cleaner, as referenced in Disqus comments, is actually Chloroquine Phosphate, which caused the death of an Arizona man who ingested it with his wife, confusing it with Chloroquine, an old malaria drug and experimental treatment for COVID-19. See Origin of Fish tank cleaner.

Invoke P

Invoke "P" is a cryptic phrase coined by RealDonaldTrump in this tweet:

As usual with “this” General Motors, things just never seem to work out. They said they were going to give us 40,000 much needed Ventilators, “very quickly”. Now they are saying it will only be 6000, in late April, and they want top dollar. Always a mess with Mary B. Invoke “P”.

Trump clarified in a separate tweet, "Invoke “P” means Defense Production Act!" This phrase is often used in the Disqus comments anytime something unexplainable happens, the market is uncooperative, or as a threat.
