What do I mean by "all your space" and "all your seat are belong to us"?

Over the years, yes, years, I've made reference to bag riders as "all your space" or "all your seat are belong to us".

Case in point:

I've been interneting since 1996 when I had an Apple Power Macintosh 7200 running the Mosaic web browser. My boyfriend at the time was an Apple nerd and a very early adopter of the internet. Our apartment was the envy of all his nerdy friends with computer parts strewn everywhere. My friends just wanted to see how easy it was to get porn - different strokes and all that - ooh, a pun. Indeed.

I saw the internet strictly as a means to learn what others found funny and to share humor with a global audience. I loved surfing - even in Mosaic. I have tried so hard to find viral videos and pictures that were shared pre-YouTube so I can resurrect them here. It can be challenging at best.

In 2001, a web friend in Germany turned me onto this (thank God for YouTube):

So as you can see, it's a spoof.

Please send in all your space or all your seats photos to

Maybe I'll do an all your space spoof video! How fun...

It makes me feel very old (and/or very nerdy) that you had to explain that.
