We've all heard it at some point or another while learning different programming languages, but what does it mean? "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US."

The phrase comes from the video game 'Zero Wing'. Originally released in Japan in 1989, the game was subsequently marketed in Europe where a hurried release schedule resulted in a poorly translated opening scene. A menacing cyborg (possibly named 'CATS', although it's unclear whether this is the name of the particular cyborg or the entire organization he represents) informs our hero, the Captain, that his entire base ("all your base") has been taken over.
