Can somebody please explain the whole "blue wire" thing? I have been here since 2009, and I still have no clue. Nor can I find anything with the search.

Here, try:
viewtopic.php?t=45947

... which links to several places, including:
viewtopic.php?t=7424

Note that ZS was a wilder place back then and some of the language is on the salty side.

I'm not entirely sure where the "phone cord" metastased into "blue wire" but IIRC it went via a "blue phone cord" intermediate step.

So blue wire refers to something that is utterly stupid and Forrest Gumped together by somebody that thinks they have a clue?

Blue phone cord is the holiest of all materials on earth.

Thanks for this thread btw, I had come across the blue wire thing and wondered a little about it, heard a few explanations, but never seriously looked into the source of the meme. I just spent some time reading through some of the threads that spawned the meme and wow the laughs I got. Especially actually being a sword enthusiast and actually knowing a bit about swords (though I am no expert), including katana. So some of the comments for me were extra funny due to the complete lack of knowledge about swords by a commenter.

BTW, my SHTF sword is not a katana (though I do own a very nice Kissaki Moroha style one), but instead my sword choice is a modern Burmese Dha, the Hanwei Banshee. No phone cord wrap though, guess I need to add some if I want to survive.
