Ellen Pao’s Gender Discrimination Case (Ellen Pao v. Kleiner Perkins) was a lawsuit filed by American corporate attorney and executive Ellen Pao against her former employer and venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in May 2012. Upon the beginning of the trial in February 2015, the case drew much online attention due to her current position as the interim chief executive officer of Reddit and sparked debates on the issue of gender discrimination in the technology industry.
On May 10th, 2012, Ellen Pao filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), one of the largest most well-known venture capital firms based in Silicon Valley, California. In the lawsuit, Pao claimed that she was placed at a disadvantage in promotion by male junior partner Ajit Nazre with whom she had a romantic affair before it ended badly; the plaintiff alleged workplace retaliation and sought $16 million in lost wages and $144 million in punitive damages. Pao continued to work at the firm until October 1st, when she was allegedly fired from the firm, while KPCB disputed that the termination resulted from the plaintiff declining its offer of a new role in the management.
Position at Reddit
In 2013, Pao was hired at the social news website Reddit. On November 13th, 2014, it was announced that Pao would become the company’s interim CEO following the resignation of Yishan Wong.
In late February 2015, the case went to trial at the San Francisco Superior Court before Judge Harold E. Kahn and a jury consisting of six women and six men. On March 27th, the jury announced their verdict in favor of Kleiner Perkins.
Following the verdict announcement, journalist Lisen Stromberg posted a tweet praising Pao in spite of the loss along with the hashtag #ThankYouEllenPao (shown below).
That day, some Twitter users tweeted the hashtag applauding Pao for bringing awareness to the issue of gender discrimination, while others critics used the hashtag to criticize Pao and her defenders (shown below). On March 30th, Business Insider published an article about the hashtag titled “People on Twitter say #ThankYouEllenPao.” The same day, Breitbart published an article by staff writer Milo Yiannopoulos, which criticized Pao’s character, calling her a “bullying, vexatious opportunist.”

Follow The Damn Train, CJ! (or “All we had to do, was follow the damn Train, CJ!”) is a memorable quote from the open world action Video Game Series Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The quote is spoken by Big Smoke in the mission “Wrong Side of The Tracks” if the player fails the mission. Due to the difficulty of the mission and the negative nature of the quote, the quote has since become infamous among fans of the series.
In the mission “Wrong Side of The Track”, CJ is tasked by Big Smoke to escort him to Unity Station where they are immediately ambushed by the Vagos Gang. CJ is then tasked to chase the escaping Vagos who are on top of a train while Big Smoke attempts to shoot them down. The mission is completed once all 4 gang members are killed before the Train reaches the Fredderick Bridge that connects Los Santos with Las Venturas. Failing to do so will cause the mission to fail and prompt Big Smoke to yell “All we had to do was follow the damn Train, CJ!”.
On October 13th, 2010, Youtuber qwert50 uploaded a video titled “FOLLOWTHEDAMNTRAIN CJ” which shows his failure in completing the mission due to getting hit by an incoming train. The vieo gathered more than 234.000 views as of 2015.

Working!! Season 1 Opening Parodies (Japanese: WORKING!!OPパロ) refers to a series of parody video remixes for the opening credit movie for 1st TV anime season of Japanese 4-panel comic strip manga series Working!! written by Karino Takatsu.
The 1st TV anime season for the manga, Working!!, aired 13 episodes between April and June in 2010. Its opening theme song “SOMEONEELSE” was composed by Satoru Kousaki who has also composed many songs for the famous animes such as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star and Monogatari Series, and sung by voice actresses for the main characters Kana Asumi, Saki Fujita and Eri Kitamura. Additionally, this opening credit movie is known for the resemblance to "Soramimi Cake", the openig credit movie for Azumanga Daioh. That’s because the director for both of the movies is the same person, Kiyotaka Ohata.
Parody videos reproducing this opening movie by MAD or hand-drawn animation became to be uploaded to the Japanese video sharing service niconico Douga (niconico) around the end of its first month. And the song itself also owns instrumental covers on niconico.
On the other hand, videos in this parody video series have been often deleted due to copyright infringement by this anime’s copyright holder Aniplex because this child company for Sony Music Entertainment is very negative to reusing of their contents. Hence, the whole amount of videos in this series isn’t so large. And some of parody video creators use Hatsune Miku cover version as the musical source to avoid deletions.
Working’!! OP Parodies
As well as “SOMEONEELSE”, The opening credit movie for 2nd TV anime season, “COOLISHWALK”, had its own parody video fad in the following year.

Cactus Gunamn is about as popular as any other minor character from Gregory Horror Show, which basically means more popular than like, Rainbow Dash or something. One of those pones. Sometimes he eve appears in fanart, or the esoteric ask blog that exists for whatever reason.
