Don't give her ideas

I don't really think she would offer up the idea on her own. She lurks from time to time and she met Drew last time he was in LA. And really, how could you meet the awesomeness that is Drew and then want to turn this place into another myspace?

Kick his ass Drew!

trainwreck thread = ballsack conunundrum or however its spelt, anyone have a linky?



Sunny stop turning me on with that bottle of Colt. And did you drink it from a Burger King cup w/ straw? I did that one time when I was in Memphis, oh god it gives you a hell of a headache.

I will sneak up to Olympia today I think and get some more Macanudo Portofino stogies, those are really nice. Tried a Montecristo last night, not too bad....

40below: Thing is, unless you come up with them legitimately, you can't prove they're accurate and you'll have a hell of a hard time shopping them around for comment. First question from the eds: "How did you get these?" The correct answer is not "I stole them."

Plus as soon as the DoJ got wind that you had them, a court would immediately slap a non-pub order on them. They're someone else's property, just like a stolen car.


Stick them on slashdot, torrent, etc. You simply can't stop the spread of information in today's society.

If I came across something truly groundbreaking, in relation to the government, I'd make sure it got out there, even if it meant doing some time in the pokey.

I think the Chiquita case actually backs up my point. If the story's big enough, a reporter (a good one) will do what it takes to make the public aware of it.

KICK HIS ASS, SEABASS!

wait. what is this about again?

skookum: Actually, if this is even true, Fox News is only doing its part to keep tabs on liberal sites like this in case there is a real danger of subversives meeting online to discuss their plans using code expressions.

I would say that many of you would do well to realize that this kind of thing is going to happen more, as the liberal media becomes more and more bold with its attacks on this administration's policy.


huh? I'm sorry, I didn't see your [/sarcasm] tag

you did mean to put one in, right?

Werdot: And there's Sunny Ray, blaming the liberals again. Do you have anything to say about anything that doesn't start with bashing liberals? Have you really bought into the idea that there's a big difference between liberals and conservatives?
Do you have anything to say that is at all related to the discussion at hand?

I blame Bush

SchlingFo: If I came across something truly groundbreaking, in relation to the government, I'd make sure it got out there, even if it meant doing some time in the pokey

me too, like, if I had evidence that the Bush administration was doing things that violate the constitution like extraordinary rendition, permanent incarceration, illegal domestic spying, torture, faking intelligence to get us into a war, lying under oath about firing attorneys, and allowing state and local law enforcement to use military satellites to solve crimes, I would totally tell someone.

THANK GLOBS THEY HAVE BEEN MODEL CITIZENS!

the eidolon: I used to work with Darrell Phillips. And this doesn't exactly seem like the thing he'd do. I mean, the Ford family is still crooked as ever, why bother with Fark?

You're doing it wrong
 
2007-08-17 04:09:24 PM
Well, that solves that mystery.

1. Try to hack fark.
2. Realize you got busted, possibly costing Fark a large dollar amount of revenue for the investigation time.
3. Edit your website so it looks like you, too, were hacked.
4. ?????

theorellior: I figured I'd post just to post in the official trainwreck thread, and to express my interest in finding out what handles this guy posted under. Were they, perchance, Afternoon_Delight, Mighty_Dog or HellBent_for_Leather?

You read my mind.

I was replying to a post that skookum imparted to us all. He is wise and I appreciate his warnings.

I find the Macanudo Brand to be derivative and lacking in substance. I do like the Arturo Fuente and the Romeo & Julieta offerings.

I had that exact modem. Sat on top of my Mac Plus. Got replaced with one of those cool Supra modems with the two-character LED display.

aniktwo: What is ANON-DIT? I looked it up, but I'm still not quite sure. And AW? I like the trainwreck threads though. I'm very curious about TF, but since I live in Canada and don't believe in Credit cards, it seems like a lot of trouble to go through for something I may or may not like.

/I think I would like it though.


I see what you are doing there...

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!

THE ARTICLE HAS CHANGED THE WHOLE "FAR LEFT" AND "LEFT" THING!!!

Carry on.

Schroepnuts: Figures something like this would happen in Memphis. We are not the brightest people in the world.

We once had a billboard that had a congratulations to three 6 mafia on one side and an advertisement for Bellevue Baptist Church on the other


I had to explain to my parents that Bellevue was a church, not an airport when they came to memphis.

What noise do lemmings make? Pretend I'm making that noise as I mindlessly jump in on this trainwreck.

Regarding the transition from n00b to addict, it is sad when I accidentally break out Farkese and no one gets it.

from Skookum's profile:

"I do believe that God put Bush in the White House, and he is leading us through the End Times. The Final Battle of Armageddon between the soldiers of God and Lucifer will be fought, and American citizens will be called on to choose their destiny."

is that starting already? Why didn't anyone tell me?

I was just about to draft my fantasy football team too...

Oh you think I'm trying to get sponsored! Hmm... I wasn't trying. I actually think I would like TF, but the process of getting it is mildly irritating for me.

It's only in the past few days that I've found out that TF is different than I thought. I thought it was just lots and lots of what we get as liters, but now I'm finding out about TFD, ANON-DIT, AW and all these things I didn't really know about. It is more appealing to me now than it was before.

/it's only a matter of time
//but I can barely keep up with the greenlit threads!
///not enough time in the day

TheGreatZarquon: "What's a baud?"

Now that you mention it, what is a baud anyway? I remember that the more of them you had, the better, but what did they do?
 
2007-08-17 04:23:06 PM
I feel the need to ask:

Do you know who else tried to hack fark.com?

/wait for it....5....4....3......2.......

elffster: Actually, I made and posted a trivial prototype for that Ajax loader in some Katrina thread or another, ages ago, but since people had other things on their minds, they just kept on pressing reload. This time I'd pretty much copy the Google Reader concept, all the way to the keystroke commands, with 'N' meaning jump to the next comment.
