Leaving the vowels out of words doesn't always make them cool.
 
2005-11-21 07:38:45 AM
criminals were "acting hand-in-glove with terrorists and religious extremists."

same thing is going on over here too... must be contagious. Hope I'm not getting it.

A country in anarchy, since when is that news? This country has been in anarchy for several years now:

Saturday night, I saw Kyrgyzstan in a setting other than Fark for the first time. It was while I was watching UFC56. Ansar Chalangov was showing a hometown of the mighty Kyrgyzstan.
 
2005-11-21 07:52:56 AM
Am I the only one bored with Kyrgyzstan and the lame farkers who choose not to put in the vowels?
 
2005-11-21 07:56:52 AM
Yhea, because I think that's a GREAT headline.

Little "The Onion"ish, but still. A solid bit.

The Gunslinger Roland: Am I the only one bored with Kyrgyzstan and the lame farkers who choose not to put in the vowels?

No. I thought it was cute (and a little quaint) the first few times, but now... not so much.
 
2005-11-21 07:58:42 AM
Although I would like to add that I did like the AWOL vowels in this instance.

Damn Kyrgyzstan is a nice country, after going there it'd would be pretty sad to see the place fall apart :(

So you're saying this is your fault?

Yeah, it would be. In fact, it would be almost as depressing as your comma usage. :)

Headline is wrong:

Kyrgyzstan n vrg f anarchy.

See, the 'a' is allowed.

/I work for the letter 'a'...
 
2005-11-21 09:36:54 AM
If you say it backwards, the country disappears.
 
2005-11-21 09:38:28 AM
I get all of those former Soviet 'stans mixed up. For a moment I was thinking of Uzbekistan, and thought, "It's about time". Then I thought of Tajikistan and wondered how that could have happened, as they're pretty stable. Then I had to go look up Kyrgysztan in the Factbook. Seems that anarchy might be an improvement.

/could have just RTFA, but I'm a maverick
 
2005-11-21 09:38:41 AM
Well, as you know, there can be only one.

*Sigh*

Nice.

I saw a PBS show about Kyrgystan

the normal method of getting married is: You abduct your future wife via camel or taxicab, take her home where you sleep deprive her for several days until she agrees to marry you.

and what killed me the most is this was presented as 'a different culture we must respect' not 'farked up kidnapping freaks'.

Alright! High Five!
 
2005-11-21 09:41:13 AM
This is clearly Bush's fault.
 
2005-11-21 09:41:23 AM
"Farking" anarchy?
"Fake" anarchy?


/how many types of anarchy can you come up with?
 
2005-11-21 09:42:24 AM
It'd be funny if Kyrgyzstan didn't have any vowels in it.

\Dubya reminds you, "Don't forget the 'a'"!
 
2005-11-21 09:42:40 AM
Alright - who stole my ()?


It's f'n anarchy around here......
 
2005-11-21 09:42:46 AM
In my country there is problem
And that problem is the Jew
They take everybody money
And they never give it back

Throw the jew down the well
So my country can be free
You must grab him by his horns
Then we have a big party
 
2005-11-21 09:43:19 AM
Ok - I quit.
/off to drink coffee
 
2005-11-21 09:45:05 AM
Except all the "Y"s in that headline still function as vowels, in addition to the "A" that was left in and already pointed out.

Headline sucks and submitter can't even achieve proper failure.

Fall on your sword, submitter.

Sorry. It was my first attempt at a Kyrgyzstan headline, I think. I didn't think people would care so much that I removed the As and Ys.

Excuse me now, I have a seppuku scheduled for myself at 9 o'clock.

elchip

I was looking for more of a European-style sword-falling, not a ceremonial disembowelment + decapitation.

Like the way Cato died, only without being rescued at the last minute, patched up, and then having to rip his own guts out.
 
2005-11-21 09:52:35 AM
So now we think Borat is from Kyrgyzstan? Well, that should provide him with a good defence...

(I tried to link to the news story, but for some reason Fark ate my HTML.)
 
2005-11-21 09:52:54 AM
Have a safe seppuku, elchip.
 
2005-11-21 09:55:44 AM
So who wants to move there with me? I think we're some pretty smart people... we could be one big crime family!
 
2005-11-21 09:57:07 AM
Gather the troops. Lets go free Kyrgystan!!
 
2005-11-21 09:58:00 AM

2005-11-21 09:59:48 AM
I thought Borat was from Kazakhstan??
 
2005-11-21 10:01:50 AM
His eyebrows say "OH RLY" but his smile says "BUTTSECKS"
 
2005-11-21 10:01:59 AM
Funny that we jump through hoops to 'correctly' spell and pronounce country names, except for western Europe. We have our own versions of Munich, Naples, Florence, etc... so why not just do the same with everyone?
 
2005-11-21 10:02:20 AM
There are some students from Kyrgyztan in my American Foreign Policy since WW2 class. They were conspiculously absent from class. It isn't a small class, but they stand out because they are so farking hot.

/discussing the failure of policy and strategy in the Middle East over the last 5 years in class this week.

Do they have oil? We could fix that problem if they got the goods.

I say of, you say a,
I say revolution, and you say die die die!


I am amazed by the amount of conflict in the world that I am completely ignorant of. Is there some source that documents all of the on going conflicts/unrests/insurrections etc. etc. that are currently happening or on the brink of happening?

Can we deport all those anarchist who show up at the World Bank and trade conferences. It seems this is what they are pushing for. I say send them there.
 
2005-11-21 10:15:08 AM
I wonder if we have any "black sites" there. I could see the detainees being conveniently "forgotten" if things really go south there.
 
2005-11-21 10:15:20 AM
beat_on_the_brat: I thought Borat was from Kazakhstan??

Correct. But Borat's reaction ("Alright! Highy Five!") is relevant because the two countries share a border.
 
2005-11-21 10:15:21 AM
Since when is anarchy bad?

It's the chaos that's bad, not anarchy.
 
2005-11-21 10:15:31 AM
Yeah, IMD, I was advocating sending Libertarians into New Orleans right after Katrina, because it looked like what they were advocating.

Anarchists are on such a bizarre level of philosophy that their sanity should be questioned. However, I would also argue that much of the absolutist right-wing should be approached in a similarl manner.
