The Pain Series
The Pain Series was created by user Huge_Midget on the Something Awful internet forums in 2003. Users on Something Awful often used the Pain Series as a prank, or used it when someone leeched. The original image set, consisting of Pain.jpg, Pain2.jpg, Pain3,jpg, Pain4.jpg, Pain5.jpg, Untitled.jpg, and awesome.jpg, was originally hosted on crazyninjas.org/kittens. However, the website was shut down, likely due to violating the host provider's terms of service.
The Pain Series was eventually popularized by Encyclopedia Dramatica. The "Pain Series" page hosts Pain1.jpg, Pain2.jpg, Pain3.jpg, Pain4.jpg, Pain5.jpg, and two additional collages, Pain6.jpg and Pain7.jpg. The page also contains a link to a Last Measure mirror called lm.loldongs.eu towards the bottom. Other pages utilize Template:Pain, a template that consists of a collage of images from the Pain Series that fill the entire page, which is hyperlinked to kittens.bioghost.com, another Last Measure mirror.
Pages that use Template:Pain on Encyclopedia Dramatica include "Puppies", "Contesting Your Ban", and several user pages and talk pages. Multiple articles on the site also include links to pages containing the template. The "Kittens" page uses a unique template which is similar to Template:Pain, but uses a different arrangement of images.
The directory located on crazyninjas.org/kittens hosted the following seven images:
- Pain.jpg (also known as Pain1.jpg): Goatse, Tubgirl, two Harlequin Fetus pictures, other gap.zip pictures, an anime scene of a girl cut open and her innards served as a meal (illustrated by guro artist Uziga Waita [ja]), a picture of a man with his face blown off (Rotten.com's "Motorcycle" picture), a closeup of a vulva afflicted by an STD, an anime scene of a hermaphrodite centaur with milk coming out of her breasts and semen out of her penises, and a picture of a man eating feces from a woman's anus. The caption "Roofle. Owned. Scrub." is under the defecation image, next to Something Awful's grenade logo.
