I would like to nominate, “There are 65 billion cows and pigs in the world!” as the worst combat taunt in the history of the medium. Does anyone have anything to counter it? Competition is fierce in this category, but I think cows & pigs has what it takes to win:
- Reference to docile barnyard animals.
- Delivered by a farmer whose only distinguishing feature is that he’s hard to see.
- Delivered straight, in a menacing voice.
- No hidden meaning that might redeem it as satire or parody.
- Lighthearted, ephemeral trivia with no bearing or meaning on the situation at hand.
Any other nominations?

Marvel's Civil War
Team Cap or Team Iron Man? More importantly, what basis would you use for making that decision?
The Strange Evolution of OpenGL
Sometimes software is engineered. Sometimes it grows organically. And sometimes it's thrown together seemingly at random over two decades.
