This whole town is stoned.
2002-06-19 06:20:03 PM  
Okay, how long till Project-Lamer shows up to belittle this police log?...
2002-06-19 06:41:15 PM  
Sounds like it was a scruffy week in Arcata.
2002-06-20 06:09:14 AM  
Gotta love the limericks

Honey, let's rent us a room
Where our ongoing fight can resume
You scream while I yell
Cops arrive, what the hell?
Behold the high-maint bride and groom.

I live 7 miles from Arcata. I'm wondering who keeps posting them? Maybe I know you. Oh and
BlackWolf : The whole damn county is stoned!
2002-06-20 06:30:11 AM  
I just didn't want a beer bottle smashed in my face =/

In most small towns there are police logs in the newspaper somewhere.

Arcata puts out their own version of the police log. Arcata was also a major gathering for Deadheads and Rianbow Gatherings. Does that help at all?
2002-06-20 06:39:02 AM  
"high-maint" is probably short for "high-maintenance"
2002-06-20 07:01:22 AM  
Very Lame website!!
2002-06-20 07:02:53 AM  
That would make a great satire Dr. Suess book LOL
2002-06-20 07:03:37 AM  
Maybe my college degree isn't doing me as much good as I would hope, since I don't recall ever seeing words like "rivulets" before. The person who writes these police blotters has a vocabulary of super-intelligent-while-funny-sounding words that is well beyond mine.

2002-06-20 07:03:40 AM  
I want one of those Margaritas...
2002-06-20 07:13:10 AM  

That is the problem with a "communications" degree.
2002-06-20 07:25:18 AM  
Trader_of_shots :
That's why I live 7 miles away from it :) I don't ever feel welcome there anymore. Maybe because I am no longer a deadhead and sometimes shave my head and look like a punk.

2002-06-20 07:43:33 AM  
Yes, it is a kind of green.
I suggest you try other things out at the scratchpad.
2002-06-20 07:53:35 AM  
Ahhh, nothin' like a fresh morning cup of WTF?
2002-06-20 08:07:58 AM  
Yes, it is a kind of blue.
I also suggest you to try other things out at the scratchpad too.
2002-06-20 08:08:44 AM  
Appie Thanks, there sure are some cute kitties on the scratchpad.

Whoops I seem to have turned this thread into a scratchpad...

It seems that Fark won't let you change the background tho
2002-06-20 08:10:27 AM  
whats the scratchpad?
2002-06-20 08:13:38 AM  
It's a place to try out ur 133t html 5k1lz

Then you can do this
2002-06-20 08:39:22 AM  
Is Fark constipated? where the next damn link?
2002-06-20 08:52:19 AM  
No link, but nice kitties here.
2002-06-20 08:53:43 AM  
yes......dead kittens

Word of the Day for Sunday May 27, 2001:

rivulet \RIV-yuh-lut\, noun:
A small stream or brook; a streamlet.

But Stephen speaks of water in the desert, and triumphal swelling progress: raindrop, runnel, rivulet, river, sea.
--Blake Morrison, As If: A Crime, a Trial, a Question of Childhood

There was a rivulet of scummy water heading for his highly polished black shoe.
--Joanne Harris, Chocolat

After two minutes in the steam chamber, sweat began to flow in rivulets from every pore in my body, dripping steadily from my fingertips.
--Fen Montaigne, Reeling in Russia

----------------------------------------------------------------------​-------- --

Rivulet is from Italian rivoletto, diminutive of rivolo, from Latin rivulus, diminutive of rivus, "a brook, a stream."

2002-06-20 09:21:23 AM  
Appie is always sending people to the scratchpad. It makes me smile.
2002-06-20 09:22:38 AM  
Funny pic... but you do realize that if something does happen on July 19th, you'll be sitting in an interrogation room with your fingernails being removed...

So... quick! Call it off! :)

Tell 'em Appie sent ya!
2002-06-20 09:28:15 AM  
Is there a way I can find out who submitted this link?
2002-06-20 09:29:59 AM  
I think traders ok for the following reasons

1) ripped off pic from the onion
2) he an aussie and will be drunk and or fending off dingos or something when this goes down.
2002-06-20 09:40:59 AM  
Hytes Xian,
I am not always sending people of to the scratchpad, but if I see people experimenting in the threads, I point out to them that there is something they can use specifically for that purpose. I could of course send them to the forum for help, but that is so slow loading.
2002-06-20 09:52:49 AM  
Appie: you're quite right to suggest people use the Scratchpad.

People such as Trader_of_shots are simply trying to get attention. He does it in every thread I've seen him in. Look at the Chicago Fark Party photoshop, for instance.

And the result is: he disappears from Fark.

Newsflash: Fark not updated recently

evocative implications - and canine emanations - of
by Kevin L. Hoover

Friday, May 24 2:02 a.m. He may not have been the ideal
houseguest - he was "scruffy," and she'd never seen him before.
And yet there he was inside her home. Fortunately, he huffed,
scruffed, reversed direction and went outside, but then tried to come
back in. By then the door was locked, and after some pounding, he
wandered off. Police found His Scruffiness, and told him to stay

9:34 a.m. A man who was asked not to sit on a window sill at an
upper G Street business reportedly said he'd "shoot the police" if the
showed up. They did, he didn't and he too was programmed to stay

11:16 p.m. A woman reported that while out to dinner with her
husband, she drank about two-thirds of a margarita and began feeling
odd - paranoid. She asked her husband if she was chewing her food
right and if others could see her eating. She wasn't even sure if she
could walk out; he might have to carry her. She made it home OK
that night.

12:13 p.m. Another scruffy one, wandering in and out of traffic and
yelling on Samoa Boulevard.

12:33 p.m. A medical marijuana patient sparked up a bowl in
Redwood Park.

12:41 p.m. A student posted a letter deemed threatening to three
girls on the Internet. He was counseled at school, apologized and
released to his mom.

1:28 p.m. Two guys with their long hair pulled up on top of their
heads were said to be offering to sell new-looking speakers to anyone
who passed by their Chevy van in an F Street parking lot. Then they

3:39 p.m. Some kind of dope offense in Redwood Park; details

5:22 p.m. Two youths strolled through an I Street cooperative
supermarket, and someone reported seeing them conceal
merchandise and walk out. When confronted, they reportedly tried to
hide two drinks. A boy said he'd had the drinks since 8:30 a.m., yet
they felt ice cold and bore price tags just like the store uses. The
reporting party admitted he hadn't seen the two actually take the
items from the shelf. The kids were released and parents were

7:39 p.m. There it is again - the term "scruffy," redolent with the
husky scent and free-range coiffure of a wandering cur, applied to a
man who ever-so-loudly refused to leave a 13th Street market place.
"I was standing in the checkout line, and suddenly, from the produce
section, erupted yelling and obscenities," said a witness. "He was
really raving - I mean, there was spittle flying onto the produce
workers." When asked to leave, the scruffster bellowed that "You're
violating my civil rights! I'm going down to the Peace and Justice
Center!" With that, mutt-man took a noisy trot down H Street toward
the Plaza, barking more obscenities, and growling that Arcata is a
"racist town." He was described as balding, with a beard and
backpack. And scruffy.

9:24 p.m. An elderly, chairbound woman waited in anticipation as
her husband arrived home from the store and parked in the driveway.
But when her 68-year-old partner didn't open the car door after 15
minutes, she called police. He had just fallen asleep.

9:26 p.m.
Honey, let's rent us a room
Where our ongoing fight can resume
You scream while I yell
Cops arrive, what the hell?
Behold the high-maint bride and groom.

Saturday, May 25 12:19 p.m. The arboreal cathedral of Redwood
Park's towering tree canopy is best experienced with one's brain
awash in pleasurechems, or so goes one train of so-called thought.

3:35 p.m. THC-induced paranoia is entirely appropriate in the
Redwood Park 14th Street nugmart these days, as watchful eyes
gaze down from the forested hills, just waiting for buds and bucks to
change hands. And when they do...

Sunday, May 26 12:44 p.m. It probably wasn't a Mensa fundraiser,
that yard sale advertised by placards placed directly over traffic signs
at Janes Road and Spear Avenue. An officer uncovered the road
signs and had a talk with the yard sale's marketing department.

11:11 p.m. A shop at Ninth and H streets seems to be keeping a
glass replacement company in business - another display window
turned to shards.

Tuesday, May 28 1:33 p.m. It's not that Ranger Bob is Dick
Tracy; more that the cannabis-befuddled stoners-by in Redwood
Park's 14th Street lot barely realize a cop's standing there before
they're trying to remember how to spell their name when they sign
the ticket. One alleged fried-egg-in-a-skillet brain was jailed on
charges of possession for sale of marijuana.

2:49 p.m. An apartment building owner complained about the
indiscriminate strewing about of Tri-City Weeklies on the complex
every Tuesday. Police called it a possible case of 556.1 PC - a Penal
Code statute which prohibits things like posting flyers and putting
vending machines on private property without the owner's permission.
The TCW's attorney didn't like this very much, but then, some people
don't like their property bombarded by heaps of plastic-wrapped
Tri-City Weeklies every Tuesday. If you don't, call the TCW - they'll
cheerfully agree to suspend delivery, and after 10 or so phone calls,
may actually do so. The journey begins at (707) 443-5672.

This has the letters C, T, and W in a sort of combination, and has the word "bombard". I am offended and I am going to sue Arcata Eye.

Mustion Was it neccesary to post the whole article?
2002-06-20 10:10:16 AM  
Oh NO. Sorry, I didn't realize that I copied the entire damn thing. Mods, delete if at all possible... apologies to everybody.
2002-06-20 10:11:01 AM  
Phix-it, 'twas an accident... boy are there rivulets of albumen on my face.
2002-06-20 10:15:50 AM  
Mustion Hey, we all have brain farts now and then.

2002-06-20 10:20:09 AM  
I think that little girl is named Albumen.
2002-06-20 10:20:20 AM  
Thanks for the support.
2002-06-20 10:21:28 AM  
Thanks, Appie, I guess that beats spamming threads from 2 months ago; spamming a thread designed for that purpose.
2002-06-20 10:23:12 AM

2002-06-20 10:27:00 AM  
There once was a man from KENT
Who's dick was so long it BENT.
He took his love shaft,
Folded it in half,
So the man never CAME he WENT.
2002-06-20 10:27:27 AM  
Okay, I like the Arcata Eye Police Log as much as the next guy, but do we need a weekly update on Fark that it has been updated?
2002-06-20 11:39:36 AM  
What the Christ-ly hell is that website all about?
2002-06-20 12:05:39 PM  
Casimir, I've never seen it on Fark before. My office gives me pleanty of Fark reading time, too.
2002-06-20 06:33:22 PM  
Why GOD why do they keep posting this thing!
