Taken from 4chan's /wsg/ board. History of 4chan's Positron Uprising which took place on September 10, 2008 as a result of the Large Hadron Collider being switched on. The day's events inspired the popular /v/-rage ROW ROW FIGHT POWAH fight animation.

Anyone 'member when moot filtered all text on /b/ to "ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWAH" and played this audio on repeat? And how the ensuing exodus from /b/ onto the rest of the site sparked a civil war? I miss those days so much it hurts, lads.
Many have seen the /v/-rage fight animation the event spawned (a 2017 remake has 2.8 million views on YouTube) but I'm upset newfriends have no clue of the history behind it. So I scoured the internet for any surviving screencaps of that day (practically zero it turns out) and put them together. In addition to 3-Angled-Blue's comic and the Bibliotheca Anonoma project's recap of the event.
