so, i'm new. which is obvious. i came to this website because i found this thing today on a pic comment (and i'm sure some of you have seen it too), and it said, "5/19/2013 Expect us." i Googled it, and apparently it's an internet phenom, but no one has any idea what it is. i was curious if any of you gents know anything about it.

this eon8 site used to freak my shit out. i would stare at it for hours.

I'm not 100% percent certain but I remember there being a commercial for this. It was a Russian computer speaking in code and it said EXPECT US on the screen then went to Russian, Flashed the URL then cut to black.

Welcome BTW. But yea this does seem like a copy of this site.

If I remember correctly, a huge asteroid passes by extremely close to earth around that time. The first time it won't hit us, bu it's next revolution(13 years later I think) depending on how our gravity affected it, it might hit us. Just some food for thought.

And the TK is Tokelau

Sounds like a good time. And what is Tokelau?

from what i understand it's a small country near new zealand, or something like that? one of the few things i was able to find said that there's a server that runs from there, so you could host a site on that server with the tk suffix, but not actually have to be in that country. but networks aren't my forte.

and thanks for the replies. it's cool to see that this site seems capable of cobbling together more information on the odd than pretty much all of google.

Look closer or turn up your gamma settings, it's a lighter color smack dab in the middle of the page

The .tk domain name service is basically an alternative to Geocities and Angelfire which is why I made the joke I did.

I also forgot to mention that with the .tk domains is if you don't get so many hits in so many days your site gets deleted.

Well its a viral site, so at this point I think it would be getting a minimum number of hits.

Its 25 hits in 90 days. I remember it being more with less time. They must have changed it.
