An undead spellcaster who has achieved immortality by separating his body from his soul. The only way to permanently kill a lich is to destroy his Phylactery.

Speculah

Speculah
Speculation. First used in threads about the anime series Sora No Woto. Many Anons expected it to be K-On with Trumpetah instead of Gitah. After a few episodes, they were talking less and less about Trumpetah, and more about Speculah and Post Traumatic Stress Disordah.

Deny the Obvious, Uphold the Inane

Deny the Obvious, Uphold the Inane
In thread #7, an anonymous poster replied to another by saying 'Deny the obvious. Uphold the inane. That's how we do things here'. Since this sounded like a good quote, Chibi-anon (the guy who made some handmade-like image of the characters) made several image macros out of it. It then became an informal motto. Since then, it gained in popularity since it sums up pretty well our way of doing things.

Morning Rescue

Morning Rescue
Japanese soft drink apparently made from turmeric. It became famous among anime fans worldwide because its commercial aired in original broadcast of Madoka's Episode 2 through 4 and was also left out there in gg's fansub releases. The apparent hilarity of the commercial, and the fact that it drastically contrasted with Madoka's overall atmosphere, contributed to its popularity among fans, to the point that the said group appended it to their releases of episodes 5 and 6 even though it didn't actually air then.
