YMMV / Snow Crash

  • Crazy Awesome: Raven is a harpoon throwing, kayak surfing, nuke carrying biker.
  • Creepy Awesome: Raven has POOR IMPULSE CONTROL tattooed on his forehead, what else do you need to know?
  • Foe Yay: Raven and Y.T.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight / "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The restrictions on using hyperinflated dollars as toiler paper became more of a prediction due to the occurence in Zimbabwe during its hyperinflation.
  • Memetic Badass: Hiro.
  • Memetic Mutation: A lot of the lines from this book are well-known in hacker culture.
  • Squick: The 15 year old Y.T. and 30+ year old Raven have sex. Granted, it only lasts about three seconds before Raven gets knocked out by Y.T.'s dentata, but still. Oh, and it's not her first time.
  • Too Cool to Live: 'Fisheye', Vic and Fido.
