nashBridges: digitalcowboy: I got two hours to burn. Pick a topic and let's go, baby!

I'll give you all one: Is it normal for a wife to insist you pay $110 for a headstone for a cat that got hit by a car?

Maybe I'll include pictures of the "gravesite" in the backyard later.


Normal. Unfortunately.

Acceptable. I'd have to say ... No.

/I'll laugh at the pics, though

do that thing where you flex each pec in rhythm to a song.

Face it, SA goons are lame. Grown adults proudly raiding kiddie forums and hacking myspace pages while they waste time at their data entry temp job is nothing to be proud of. My pecs, however, are something to be proud of.

Rodeodoc: FTFA: Even back in 1994, when a young "Pillow Pants" was enjoying the 14.4 kilobaud sights of Compuserve,

14.4? Piker. I remember when we downloaded at 300 baud. Then 900. We were cookin' with gas when we hit 1200.


Yeah, but that dumbass doesn't even know the difference between "baud" and "bits per second." 300baud and 1200baud are valid... but 14.4 is "14400 bits per second."

http://www.cnet.com/Resources/Info/Glossary/Terms/baud.html

"Most people use baud to describe modem speeds in bits per second--but they're wrong. They may say a 9,600-bps modem transmits at 9,600 baud, but really baud is a measure of how frequently sound changes on a phone line. Modern modems transmit more bits with fewer changes in sound, so baud and bps numbers aren't equal. However, only editors, pedants, and communications engineers now care about the distinction. But if you run into members of these groups, use bps instead of baud."

Since I am an editor, a pedant and a communications engineer, I care a great deal about the distinction.

SA sucks since they A) changed designs, B) stopped Fashion SWAT, C) stopped being funny, D) some of the above

And in other news, my opinion is the only one that matters. The rest of you are made of fail, shame and horror. FOR THE LOSE.

It's like you wouldn't even buy a clue if it was drastically reduced and had free shipping.

They forgot the legendary 'fanboi defense'. Anytime anyone, anywhere, claims something you don't like is good, call them a fanboi.

BAM!

It takes the wind right out of their sales as they can do nothing but cry in the doldrums of Internet defeat.

I discovered Fark when Something Awful did a fake front page mocking Fark. Both sites have received daily visits from me since, because Drew Curtis and Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka (and the communities they've created) are both awesome.

With that said, I sure miss JeffK and Cliff Yablonski. I also liked the Ed Baker Stoplight Simulator, the Second Life Safari, and the Leonard Crabs Law, among other features. The Weekend Web and Photoshop Phriday are also generally great for a laugh.

/Still not a 4chan fan, though.
//SA and Fark are at least somewhat useful in comparison.

I will take the fifth and contend that that, uh, is just your opinion.

ComicBookGuy: My, my!! And I thought that article struck too close to home for ME!!!!

No man, SA is JUST NOT FUNNY. And you know what? I don't think it's changed. I don't think it used to be so good. It was NEVER funny. I used to go there a lot, and try to persuade myself that it was funny. So many people love it, it must have something right? Eventually I just gave up, and accepted that it is not funny. Ever. I've never seen anything on there that so much as makes me smile. It's all obvious, unoriginal humor that you've already seen elsewhere. Even their reviews of bad movies aren't funny. How can you mess that up?! That's got to be some of the easiest material there is.

The only thing about SA that's even remotely amusing is all "teh lamerz" that pop out of the woodwork whenever you say it's not funny. Like DisneyonIce. "Brilliant"? Seriously? You honestly found that bit you quoted funny? I found intelligence-insultingly obvious. Humor for me doesn't come from the obvious moronic jokes. The sort of jokes your friend at the bar who fancies himself a comedian makes. It comes from the unexpected.

SA beats you over the head with the punchline. "I hate doctors, what do you they know. They say I eat unhealthily...OH I'M GETTING A HEART ATTACK BECAUSE THE DOCTORS I JUST INSULTED WERE RIGHT ABOUT MY EATING HABITS. GET IT? GET IT? I'M SAYING THEY'RE WRONG, BUT IN FACT THEY'RE RIGHT? SEE WHAT I DID THERE?"

Yeah, that's hilarious.
