2014 was HN's true heyday, there's no denying. Over the last year and a half, many people have asked "what happened to us?" in regards to the general shift in tone over time. And we could only guess at the answer. But this weekend, the answer was made abundantly clear: nothing was ever going to out-WTF the 3rd most popular post in HN history: The /mlp/ Cum Jar Project.
Why is this weekend significant?
Because this Memeorial Day weekend, The Mad Fapper himself returned from the shadows with a grim update.
The project continues to this day....
...and he has a girlfriend.
This grainy screencap compilation comes to us from the Tumblr Tipline, where it is clear that the jar does, in fact still exist, and has been added to since we last posted about this over a year ago, after the.... Caramelization .... incident.
For the sake of clarity, that is a jar of human semen, collected over many months, in a jar containing a plastic Rainbow Dash figure.
Below, timestamped and everything, is how the update unfolded on /b/.
>this guy can get a gf and you cant
There's really no point in living is there?
The real question is; how much longer will this "project" continue? Will his updates be as anticipated as Jizzmas on /b/? Or will his newfound love interest put an end to this for good?
