I can't cover everything, but I'll try to highlight some memorable ones for us.[/i]

[u][b]Conclusion and Special Thanks[/b]: [/u]
I'd like to thank Hylebos, Lord of Blah, burritosenior, Waffle, ECOH Cam, Helveck, SkilPhil, Arbitor 5, Tom T, Spartan1065, Kickimanjaro, and everyone else at Bnet Regulars for compiling this information. There is no way I could have done this on my own and I won't take credit for all of it.
I'd also like to thank the Bungie Community (Yes, YOU!) for making these moments happen. None of these memories would have happened if it wasn't for us. Let's send out 2012, with a bang.
Here's to 2013! *Raises drink*
Does anyone have the '3D Bnet' thread that was here, on the community forum, a few months back? It was a feature on some browser for a short time this year. I just recalled it and I would like to save it.

I was surprised that the forced meme wasn't 'Do you even lift?'[/quote]Depends. "Do you even lift" was more from the flood. "Dragons" is based from the community forum.
"Do you even lift" wasn't originated from The Flood Forum either. Not a huge deal, people will remember it.
