A quick reminder to future posters.

Since a good deal of memes are related to political or such content, avoid posting these.

A way to poke fun at or laugh at something or someone, usually after something DRAMATIC occurs, an act or a statement etc...

Memes can go down some very dark paths and what has already been pointed out are the POLITIC ones

No, I think that also occurs just because HUMANS, but I also think it is about making fun of other things then just this, like stupidity.

ASMR memes, for those who watch ASMR:

[ Show youtube player ]

That's the only thing I can come up with.

Like what do you do on Youtube when you don't watch Pewdiepie, but I really can't understand the hype around this channel.

Meme in 2018: an online running gag, usually an image with different texts added to it for comedic effect.

Meme in 2019 and beyond: everything is a bloody meme. Words like comedy, joke, gag, humor no longer exist. Meme this, meme that, oh my god I'm meme-ing.

Or, on a more intimate level, some form of Tantric sinking into some beloved persons arms for relaxing purposes ? Well, come to think of it, there is that song from the Chemical Brothers that might induce that very effect, minus the actual poking and rubbing.

[ Show youtube player ]

Might remind some observers of that cultural phenomenon called catharsis, although not quite. Also, a few people are overly sensitive to some specific noises like when someone chews sweets next to you at the pictures. Such thematic area is way beyond the scope of that thread I guess, but it might explain why ASMR is popular on YT (to relieve the symptoms of Misophonia, wild guess here of course).

I don't think it qualifies for a well rounded meme, but I find it peculiar how often people associate kindness and generosity with the personality of the dolphin :

O.K. where to start? The video I posted is showing memes about ASMR.

ASMR is a tingly feeling that starts in the back of your head then travels down the spine and spreads out and it's the most relaxing feeling you can think of. It's elicited by certain triggers. Those can be visual (flashlight triggers) or accoustical (crinkles, tapping) or just situational (personal attention).
Everyone has his own set of triggers that apply to him. Some are not triggered at all and don't understand all that.

The emotional reaction to music is different and there is also a word for it that I have forgotten, it's something like "frizzon".

But the Youtube channel mentioned in the beginning of the memes video (Pewdiepie) is not an ASMR channel. It's just a very successful Youtube channel and I don't know why, that's what I said.
