Help me out here guys: is this even possible? Can I use a meme without
being "infected" by it to a certain extent. Could this in fact be
"Level 4" as it were... the ability to use /all/ meme's and be
/unaffected/ by any of them?

Nice idea, but I'm not that "smart" or what have you. I'll simply have
to beleive it for it to be any good to me.
