If you hate yourself enough to have suffered through those last, brutal seasons of How I Met Your Mother, you were rewarded by the largely disappointing revelation that it's still going to be [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] in the end because television is cheap and everything you knew was a lie.

Luckily, 2014 is a time in which the Internet reigns supreme, so some valiant servant went about rectifying the let down that was the final episode of the show's nine-season run. Below, you'll find a clip of the last episode of HIMYM, edited so that the last twist never existed and everyone who managed to stick with the show for the whole shebang can actually get some sleep at night, again.

Like the great Tom Hanks before him, seasoned actor, noted badass, and children's storybook reader Samuel L. Jackson was caved to Jimmy Fallon's ridiculous, whimsical requests and performed slam poetry on late night television. Because television is really just a means of creating something to exist on the Internet, later—and because the Internet is obsessed with '90s nostalgia—Mr. Jackson's epic slam poem is about the beloved sitcom Boy Meets World.

Hello, World. I'm Cory Matthews. Short, average, head full of curls.

The year: 1993. We see two boys who like both brains and brawn. Cory Matthews and the other a Hunter comma Shawn.

This woman spent $25,000 on six cosmetic surgery procedures so that she would look like Jennifer Lawrence. She doesn't really look like Jennifer Lawrence.

The owner of a Dallas pizzeria is charging college girls $1,000 for a side of ranch dressing to go with their slices. Seriously, kind of.

News anchors everywhere are about to start terrifying parents and patronizing kids by talking about how all of the youths are smoking coffee beans, now.

A recent Philly Craigslist post is asking too much of job-seeking females.

This is no April Fools’ joke. Craigslist has always been a strange, strange place.

Last week a posting appeared in the Philadelphia Marketing/Advertising/PR jobs section of the site that sent very real chills up my spine.

A person, who did not identify as male or female, advertised for “a new/attractive sales girl” who could uphold the duties of this fast growing tech company, like presenting, making sales, and jumping on client calls. They emphasized that job perks included “’personal’ benefits” and a “’personal’ relationship around the office”. The poster noted, “discretion is required”. They also requested that interested persons must be attractive and should send photos along with a resume.

If you were on vacation or simply avoiding the Internet because you didn't want the season finale of The Walking Dead to be spoiled for you, you might have missed the whole #CancelColbert fiasco that's been playing out for the past couple of days.

Basically, what had happened was someone running the @ColbertReport Twitter feed for Comedy Central sent a tweet containing a joke from last Wednesday's episode of The Colbert Report without proper context and the Internet took over, from there. People were angry that Colbert would send something so racially insensitive and out-of-context, so #CancelColbert started to gain traction, even though the show's host has nothing to do with the @ColbertReport handle

Still with us?

In case you didn't already feel poorly enough about your contributions to the world, here's a first-generation American in New York who has accomplished the rare and impressive feat of being admitted to all eight Ivy League schools. Most students who think they might be Ivy League material don't even apply to all eight institutions, let alone gain admission to each and every one, but Kwasi Enin has his pick of the litter.

Enin's test scores and Advanced Placement performance while at Long Island's William Floyd High School helped him stand apart from most of his peers.

But Enin has "a lot of things in his favor," says college admissions expert Katherine Cohen, CEO and founder of IvyWise, a New York-based consulting firm.

If you've ever had the displeasure of observing Millennial humans in their natural habitat—an eternal line at an overrated pizza joint at 3:18 a.m.—you probably walked away with a slew of questions.

Do they know they're saying "literally" to mean "figuratively?"

Does music even have words, now?
