Worst. Comment. Ever.

Is that like human spontaneous combustion?

Why can't I see anything?
2002-04-07 01:00:02 AM  
I must be blind or something, because I can't see what this is about.

In sum, the person who wrote this article is "a certified clinical hypnotherapist, working with people who feel they have had non-human abduction experiences."

He has supposedly heard stories about people who cannot be seen or heard by anyone.

And he has read a book claiming this effect is due to the fact that "electrons absorb light".

Ah... delight.

2002-04-07 01:00:22 AM  
I've seen this!

oh wait, no I haven't.

2002-04-07 01:00:26 AM  
James Randi, the magician who exposed Uri Geller, covered this silliness on his web page a few weeks ago.
2002-04-07 01:00:46 AM  
Wouldn't everybody else see floating clothes?
2002-04-07 01:01:12 AM  
"Non-human abduction experiences."
Rednecks surrender.
2002-04-07 01:01:19 AM  
Tonight, I suffer from spontaneous human banality.

"I'm invisible! Can you see me?" - Mystery Men

Umm, right.
2002-04-07 01:01:56 AM  
Hello? Hello?

Can anyone see me?

Can you all see how stupid this is?

maybe they were just being ignored because they were dumbasses or horrible customers.
2002-04-07 01:02:24 AM  
Nope, because the person developes a temporal wake and causes a time shift. Or people just don't give a shiat the person is there. One or the other, I'm not sure.
2002-04-07 01:02:34 AM  
I can't tell if this is a satire of lousy service ignoring people or someone acually trying to be serious....
2002-04-07 01:02:41 AM  
Ya know, I always read the article before I comment but that is just too many words this late and after too many adult beverages. This article should have been saved for tomorrow afternoon. I'll read it then. It will probably suck.
2002-04-07 01:03:09 AM  
lol @ H X
2002-04-07 01:03:12 AM  
KingTT: good one. I was just thinking that people are so damned oblivious and discourteous nowadays, that this just sounds like a regular day for some people. Dear Bob, I hate people (but I love gatherings, isn't it ironic?) *sigh*
2002-04-07 01:05:58 AM  
When I first read it I thought the same thing. But the author is being serious.
2002-04-07 01:07:07 AM  
James Randi is my hero!!!
2002-04-07 01:08:39 AM  
we're ALL invisible 'cause we don't have TotalFark
2002-04-07 01:09:05 AM  
So that can be my excuse now when girls ignore my ever-so-romantic advances. 'Oh, I just went invisible'.

On another note, anyone else seen National Lampoon's Van Wilder? Funny movie...

This does not make any sense, how did the guy open the door without the woman noticing the door open, and then why did he close it with someone waiting(that moron).

Didn't anybody ever try to touch someone during this time?
2002-04-07 01:17:08 AM  
You know, I think I just experienced this phenomenon in a restaurant in the West Village, NYC. I sat at a table for 15 minutes and the waiters couldn't seem to see me or my girlfriend. Dual Spontaneous Human Invisibilty! Then, after all that time, a waiter walked up and welcomed us, as if we had just walked in!

Slap my butt, somebody call Cosmiverse.
2002-04-07 01:17:26 AM  
My kids do this to me all the time. I tell them, "Clean-up your toys, wash your hands and come to dinner." Fifteen minutes later, not one of them is anywhere near the dining room table.
Or, does this happen to all parents?
2002-04-07 01:17:33 AM  
want a hoot? check out her web page.
2002-04-07 01:18:54 AM  
You are exactly right, OBB - years '89-'93 finally explained.
2002-04-07 01:18:59 AM  
Well... now my mother has a totally different way to explain how my father left :)

but hey... its all good :)
2002-04-07 01:19:51 AM  
There's some Higbees around here, too. Weird bunch of people. Must run in the Higbee family.

"I'm Invisible! Can anybody see me?"

"Yes.... Maybe you should put some pants on or something, if you want to keep crime-fighting today."
2002-04-07 01:21:38 AM  
i read each of the test cases expecting it to be a joke...
like, they paint the person up to be a very boring person who would be ignored by everyone, and then follow through...

is this person serious?
2002-04-07 01:21:57 AM  
'cuse me ladie I'm just doin my duty
so pull down them pants and gimme some booty
2002-04-07 01:22:20 AM  
"phraseology"---is that similar to "strategery"
2002-04-07 01:25:49 AM  
I love the fact that one of the cited sources is:
"Richards, Steve, "Invisibility", The Aquarian Press"
And now, I, too, will make myself
2002-04-07 01:25:50 AM  
From the James Randi site:
"The light engendered in the eye of the observer no longer comes into contact with the body that has become invisible," a medieval notion that has of course now been resurrected as the latest notion of how we see.

Good call on his part.
2002-04-07 01:29:25 AM  
...and the invisible man says "I don't know, but my asshole really hurts!"
2002-04-07 01:29:29 AM  
I'm invisible to hot women...or chicks can see thru me. One or the other - I forget which.
2002-04-07 01:29:40 AM  
Spontaneous human, invisibility is always voluntary. These folks brains have disappeared. Their bodies are being ignored because the "vacancy" sign is lit.
2002-04-07 01:29:49 AM  
I think the guy at the party was just drunk. and the lady waiting to use the bathroom was stupid. Or vice versa. End of story.
2002-04-07 01:32:11 AM  
Yadda Yadda Yadda.(yawn)

Really, we need stories to put on Fark during the night that doesn't have many big words. How am I supposed to handle an article this long with a hangover anyway?

Should I be so fortunate to be invisible, I could be spared the task of reading Fark each night. I would also be blind.

2002-04-07 01:37:47 AM  
I can't figure out who is the bigger moron. The researcher or his subjects.
2002-04-07 01:40:41 AM  
Don't you wish this was invisible?

2002-04-07 01:41:48 AM  
put a satire tag on this next time,

otherwise people take it seriously.
2002-04-07 01:45:29 AM  
Børk! Børk! Børk!
2002-04-07 01:46:58 AM  
you wanna feel invisible? go type something in the forum...
2002-04-07 01:49:37 AM

That's the link to the "spontaneous human invisibility" rant on Randi's site. Awesome. Hope this guy lives forever!
2002-04-07 01:51:51 AM  
Douglas Adams explained this phenomena via Slartibartfast.
He called the S.E.P. field - Some Elses Problem.
Read the Hikers guide and much wisdom shall be granted.
