What does it mean to be 'Rickrolled'?
You've been Rickrolled! A 'rickroll' is a prank played on an unsuspecting web surfer. To be rickrolled is when browsing a website (especially a discussion forum or comment board), one comes across a link expecting it to lead to one thing, but finds something completely different when the link is clicked. The name Rick refers to '80s pop singer Rick Astley. The standard rickroll generally involves someone posting a link claiming it leads to something quite interesting (e.g., hot chicks in panties), but actually linking to a video of Mr. Astley singing "Never Gonna Give You Up." This is usually considered a major let-down.

What part of the chameleon changed most during its evolution?
nice too see people taking an interest in lizards im Dr.Macdoo and i specialize in lizards especially chamealoens. during their evolution there incomtherspipathus developed enquipoilunt deipseruis and allowed its pigment of the incomtherspipathus to develpod the ability to 'see' the coulours around it. in reality the chameleon is seeing the coulours around it and adjusting the pigment in its incomtherspipathus to the surrounding coulours. the main point is that you got rickrolled!
Asked in HTML
How do you use HTML to Rickroll someone?
Because HTML "hides" things directly, you can add a link to anywhere and send the browser into the twilight zone. Sometimes the link actually goes to "the" site - the one from which the prank draws its name. In a "true" Rickroll, you can take the link to Rick's song and rename it anything you want. That way it "appears" as a "good" link to a related page, but actually directs the user who clicks on it to the real target page - the music video of Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. The only way the user can avoid it is to actually roll the cursor over the link and read in the net information bar the actual target page to which the link will direct the user if he clicks on it. Many users just click on a link without "previewing" the target address. If they just "click and go" they'll get Rickrolled. A link is provided to the YouTube post. And if you click on it, you won't get Rickrolled because you've been told up front where it links you to.
