A "White Whale" is something you've been searching years to find but with no luck
I had the idea from subreddit where people try to find something they can't name or place:
/r/tipofmytongue
Or from the question I got the thread title from:
http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comme ... ing_youve/
Some places on reddit may be NSFW, I don't want to accidentally link anything that's against any rules However I thought it might be worthwhile to check out for anyone who wanted to ask a specific question non related to the thread or just check it out there is no Dan or Phil discussion on Reddit so it is not worthwhile to even go to their subreddits

It's real, it's from a dinner Tyler Oakley had at Playlist to celebrate his birthday in 2013 (if I remember correctly).

Original photo was by Hannah Hart I think (she featured at least). Original:

If the striked part is true, and I'm definitely not implying that it is lol, then I think what I need in my life right now is about 100 pictures and 20 videos of drunk!Phil. He looks like a supermodel here

I've been thinking for years now how I would like for these 3 to collab. This photo made me very happy
edit: Phil really does look like a supermodel, wow

I think it started a few weeks before the book was released, a person got the book early and posted pictures of it and Phil sent them a DM on Twitter telling the person not to spoil the book. It's become an inside joke i don't wanna say meme to get an 'angry DM' from Phil when someone does something that Phil wouldn't like. <- phil writing those dm's
I hope this explains it for you
I'm really tired, so if this doesn't make sense I blame my tiredness

How could anyone get an early copy of the book? Like an editor's son/daughter?

Librarians and book sellers and get advanced copies. I got all the harry potter books as advance first edition copies. I had those read by the time kids were lined up at book stores. :D

Did I recently hear an anecdote about Phil signing his name ‘Ovum’, or was it a dream?

If my memory serves me right, some of the bookstores in Europe where the fans ordered from, shipped it to them earlier than the official release date.

Thank you so much for finding this! :D This whole video truly did feel like a predecessor to Dan's whole nicer internet thing he did with radio one last year.

I've never seen this pic before and don't remember it from Japhan (admittedly, my memory is hazy). Real or a manip? It kinda looks like there was someone standing in between them who has been cut out.

Yeah that's a manip. No idea about the original pic, but I assume there's a fan standing in between them considering the standard meet & greet expressions they have on their faces.

I have a white whale...

I've seen a few mentions here and elsewhere that Phil took Dan to his high school reunion, but when I tried looking it up I only found a few tweets from Phil, and they never mentioned anything about Dan being there... is there actually proof of this or is it merely speculation? If people sherlocked their way into finding out, how did they come to this conclusion?

We found Dan went with Phil because a girl posted a photo with them at a restaurant up in Manchester. But the girl took it down because it got too much attention that she didn't want. Phil mentioned Dan going with him in a live show as well, basically confirming it.
he mentions dan briefly around 0:30 when talking about the train story. Also again at 0:56 when someone asked about it.

I vaguely remember a radio show where Phil threatened to call the police if Dan played Allstar again, does anyone know which show it was please?
