Some moron has been vandalising the "You Know That Thing Where..." section on TVTropes. I tried to fix a couple of entries, but he just re-vandalised them. Apparently there's no mechanism in place to ban him, because he hasn't worked over an actual entry, just the YKTTW.

And now the whole site appears to be down, presumably while Steps Are Taken. I'm sure the troll finds the possibilty that he broke the wiki to be highly amusing.

Edit: Well, he's banned now. Actually, now I think about it, I'm not sure the site appearing to be down was related, or was even at their end rather than just my computer playing up again.

I'm idly flicking through TVTropes, as is my wont, and on the page Compulsary School Age (about characters who look like they're in their teens having to go to school, even if they're Really Seven Hundred Years Old), I read this:

*The 2002 tv series That Was Then and Do Over both featured protagonists in their 30s who were reliving their high school years.

Aha! Now I know why the This Time Round High School AU created by [ profile] scarfman is called "Then Do That Over"!

Okay, I've been having weird dreams for a while now, but this one was a doozy.

It was moderately weird to start with: I was watching TV, or listening to the radio, or in the radio studio watching it being recorded and they were acting out some of it for no reason, and some BBC personalities I remember from my childhood[1] were doing - totally straight - some sort of Power Rangers rip-off where they had the powers of birds. It was Better Than It Sounds, honestly.

But what sent it over the edge was that, throughout the dream, I was thinking "Okay, they're a Five Man Band, and now they're fighting their Evil Counterparts (The Psycho Rangers) in an Alternate Universe. Does it count as a Mirror Universe if it's not actually them in the alternate versions of the Powered Armour? Either way, the alternate versions of the heroes are definitely Badass Normals. Wait, when the Hot Librarian took off her specs then, was that The Glasses Come Off or The Glasses Gotta Go? I need to get to a computer before I forget any of this..."

I was really disappointed when I woke up and realised I couldn't add it to the wiki because it didn't exist.

[1]No, I don't remember who they actually were, just that they were BBC personalities from my childhood. The Smart Guy may have been Dr Graeme Garden, but that's all I got.
