"Tetris taught me that when you try to fit in, you’ll disappear” is a saying about the tile-matching puzzle video game that has been printed on many images. “Tetris taught me that, if you try to fit in, you will disappear” was posted on Twitter on May 13, 2015. “Tetris taught me that when you try to fit in you’ll disappear” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on May 14, 2015.

Wikipedia: Tetris
Tetris (Russian: Тетрис, pronounced [ˈtɛtrʲɪs]) is a tile-matching puzzle video game, originally designed and programmed by Russian game designer Alexey Pajitnov. It was released on June 6, 1984, while he was working for the Dorodnitsyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science of the Soviet Union in Moscow. He derived its name from the Greek numerical prefix tetra- (all of the game’s pieces contain four segments) and tennis, Pajitnov’s favorite sport.
