2002-02-11 07:37:54 PM  
Yeah, I hate Salon.
2002-02-11 07:40:24 PM  
Full page ad

Couldn't click the back button fast enough.
2002-02-11 07:42:34 PM  
Dude, you're sweepin' the half-pipe!

(Uh, wait... where's the word 'dude' in there?)
2002-02-11 07:44:10 PM

In case you missed THIS breaking story, it's my birthday today and I'm clawing for admiration. Touch my love monkey.

You are correct 777. No dudes to be found here. MISLEADING FARKIN HEADLINE! The humanity.
2002-02-11 07:47:42 PM  
Is it still X-Treme, dude?
2002-02-11 07:48:19 PM  
I did not see "dude"; more egregiously, however, I *did*
see the word "gnarliest".
2002-02-11 07:50:43 PM  
Happy B-day, Bigpeeler.
2002-02-11 07:52:31 PM  
nothing wrong with dude. and i knew we'd take the half pipe, dudes.

why are the US riders so great?
2002-02-11 07:57:49 PM  
Dude, there is no dude in the whole article dude!
2002-02-11 08:03:21 PM  
The halfpipe should not be an Olympic event. No ifs. No ands. No buts.
2002-02-11 08:05:06 PM  
Happy Birthday Peeler

Personally, I'm a fan of Birthweekends.
2002-02-11 08:05:31 PM  
Happy Birthday you sack of old shiat !(Heh Heh)
43 now ?!
Man DUDE !
2002-02-11 08:09:05 PM  
If you are 19 or 20 you are not GenX, you are post GenX, and you are ripping us GenXers off, stop it and get your own style. Those dudes are fags, and there is no way snowboarding should be an olympic event, I know guys who are better then these guys, they hand out in the parking lot of Alyeska and wait for people to leave the moutain early and bum there last hour of riding by clipping their lift tickets. The truley hardcore snowboarders could not give a shiat about the Olympics, or anything for that matter.
2002-02-11 08:09:07 PM  
This happened a while ago and shouldn't have been posted.
2002-02-11 08:10:34 PM  
alright, who is drunk?
2002-02-11 08:13:25 PM  
I am so stoked The U.S muscled the I.O.C into totally including the only "sport" the U.S. could medal in.

How many more newsflashes are we going to have in one of the slowest news days ever?

No "dude"...?!

No Dell for you!!
2002-02-11 08:18:24 PM  
say it again! I dare you!
2002-02-11 08:21:01 PM  
Happy birthday, Peeler. But, er, no... we'll pass on the monkey touching. Dude.
2002-02-11 08:31:18 PM  
There's like something way funny goin' on with the internet.
2002-02-11 08:32:19 PM  
"he applauded Zoeggler's winning effort, and his temporary Utah home has a refrigerator full of his beloved German beer.

2002-02-11 08:35:16 PM  
Hey BAM Don't think you're so hard core. Snowboarding is just a cheap rip off of skateboarding, would be nothing without the sport of kings, surfing.

Go back to your nintendo.
2002-02-11 08:36:50 PM  
Any sport that has to be judged should not be in the olympics.
If it can;t be measured as in the fastest, highest,longest etc... it should be dropped from the olys
2002-02-11 08:38:12 PM  
I am 30, I don't play nintendo, and come to alaska, I will show you hard core.
2002-02-11 08:45:54 PM  
Surfing in alaska. That's hard core. But I think we agree. That shiat in the Olympics is bogus.
2002-02-11 08:46:23 PM  
I clicked on it, and up came an ad for a unnamed American-sounding Japanese luxury car company.

Pretty sneaky advertising, if you ask me.

Go ahead, ask me!
2002-02-11 08:47:33 PM

That would get rid of pretty much every sport I don't like. Sweet idea!
2002-02-11 08:55:10 PM  
we do agree, my dick is bigger than yours
2002-02-11 08:55:47 PM  
The only problem I see with that is boxing.
2002-02-11 08:58:40 PM  
I am so stoked The U.S muscled the I.O.C into totally including the only "sport" the U.S. could medal in.

kinda like those wily canadians muscled curling into the winter olympics, and Japan used their influence to get sumo wrestling into the summer games. and gay people used that mighty conspiracy to make Greco-Roman wrestling an olympic event.
2002-02-11 09:03:09 PM  
...and those wacky Palestinians used thier sympathy to get in stone throwing.
2002-02-11 09:08:13 PM  
Happy Birthday, Bigpeeler.
Looks like the 4um is having a touch my monkey fest, so I quoted you in there. heh.

Ouroborus: Dude. I used to own that game. It was the first ...participant in an experiment I like to call "What happens when you drop-kick shiatty old games out the attic window".

Subject failed to survive.

*evil laugh*
2002-02-11 09:45:26 PM  
I thought that game was called California Games or something, or maybe that was some other old game I partially remember...
2002-02-11 09:54:20 PM  
"Ross Powers, Danny Kass and B.J. Thomas pound the pipe." hhuuuhh
2002-02-11 10:12:17 PM  
I've been watching most of it so far (really sick just about all I can do) and some of these judges are really biased. The Russian judge put the Russian team at the highest rank with a score far above all the other judges, it was rather obvious that he was doing it. The Canadian judge did similar but not as bad (or obvious).
2002-02-11 10:29:56 PM  
MEOWSPIDER: Thats why they have multiple judges from diff. countries, US judges can be biased (<< hate that word) too. BTW USA won 1,2 and 3, so it was fair at the end.

I hope we wont see only USE medals headlines here on Fark, try to think a little more worldly.
2002-02-11 11:13:40 PM  
Salon or AP or whoever runs that thing replaced the initial story of the half-pipe competition with a roundup story.
2002-02-11 11:36:09 PM  
Judged events are all rigged. Remember, the entire olympic selection was the result of graft involving crap like plane tickets and fruit baskets. Imagine how weak of a blowjob you'd have to give to get an extra two tenths in pairs figure skating. Hell, I bet a peek at your fine, naked, figure-skater heinie would make the French judge crock his (or her) vote.
