Ahh! I see it now but somehow I missed the visual clues to put together who was doing what. Thank you so much!

Yeah, the meme format was used for "girls would do something boring, boys would do something funny/ironic", and this meme suggests that guys would just try to impress girls and get laid.

TBF I would use a time machine to make money that I would use to impress girls and get laid.

Yeah I think I would make an effort not to let on about the time machine, just get the money and life the lifestyle. And maybe arrange an accident for the second son of a third-rate New York real estate guy.

I'd arrange for him to go meet with the son of a Saudi construction magnate, and then something bad would happen to both.

Maybe even arrange for a spoiled Korean kid to go AWOL from his Swiss boarding school and join them.

OK, good point. The Fox executive who cancelled Firefly can take his place.

Reminds me of one of my favorite songs (though yours is a little less dark): Destiny Street by Richard Hell and the Voidoids
I was walking down the street today
When I stepped off a curb into ten years ago
I was ten years past, and I saw myself at the age of twenty-one
Looking right back at the man I've now become

I scared myself—I was horrified
But elated too, like I'd
Escaped from ten year's jail
I'd never known was full of hell

Instantly I realized
This had happened to me once before
When I was the younger guy
And now I'd have to live it though once more

Yes, I seduced myself
I took me home
I whispered only I could make
The younger guy feel less alone
(I first heard this on a radio show titled "Celebration of Fear" by Jesse Walker, who said afterwards "Destiny Street made it into the program partly because it's a nice spooky story, and partly because I heard that on the radio in the middle of the night... I was just entering adolescence and it scared the hell outta me... too much sexual weirdness for that age"

I do worry that kids today get too much sexual weirdness at too young an age. I shudder to think of my 15yo self having access to all manner of fetish porn.

I vaguely thought the macro was a reference to the first season of nuWho, but it'd have to be a girl wanting to meet her father.

This is kind of neat: a map of the countries of the world with what their names literally mean. Obviously a lot of them translate to "Land of the ____ People", but still neat. You'll probably have to click on the original link to get it remotely readable, and even then it could still be bigger.

It's a really neat idea, but at least some of them (the ones I checked) are wrong. It doesn't help that that they're inconsistent about names and meanings (for instance, the "United States of America" vs. just "Mexico", or "Land of the Angles" vs. "Land of the People"), but some are just simply wrong—"Argentina" just means "silvery/silver-colored", nothing about being beside a river or even land.

The Angles/People seems at least somewhat fair to me. "Deutsch" comes from a word that means "people" or "folk". "Angles" comes from a word that means "fishhook".
