Perhaps super deluxe would like to see how it's supposed to be done?

That was awesome.

This another example of College Humor being full of win. Fark TV really should take notes from these guys, they're doing it right.

hehe... pretty good, actually...
2007-11-09 12:14:04 PM  
Wow. One of Keith Olbermann's four viewers is a Farker. Cool.

Back ontopic: Jack Bauer's cell phone never drops a call at a critical moment. THAT'S fiction.

Why can't FarkTV be that funny??

"You picked up the phone while I was on the internet!!!"

Just the wording alone on that had me dying. I was expecting at least one reference to not being able to connect to AOL because it was too busy though.

"Perhaps super deluxe would like to see how it's supposed to be done?"

THIS. Unless they've re-branded themselves. Then Bravo.
2007-11-09 12:16:41 PM  
I've never watched 24, but that was full of win regardless.

I used to hate that. It would catch me by surprise everytime I worked on my father-in-laws machine.

Guessing the plot for 4th season,,,
2007-11-09 12:20:55 PM  
I had Prodigy in 1994. That was funny as hell.
2007-11-09 12:21:31 PM

Is this ad incorporated into the video?
2007-11-09 12:22:07 PM  
I thought Jack Bauer was doing 48 in the pokey, 24 if he's nice maybe.
2007-11-09 12:22:53 PM  
In related news, an apparent "24" fan wrote an unintentionally hilarious letter to the editor of my local paper today.

President should be able to torture

I'd like to respond to Clint Talbott's editorial "Torturers and enablers" of Nov. 7. It is easy for Talbott to moralize about "torture" in the abstract. How would Talbott respond to the "one in a million" scenario of a captured terrorist with known knowledge of a nuclear device planted in an American city?

As the bomb ticks away and with the possibility of hundreds of thousands of lives at stake, should the terrorist be treated as any common criminal or be subjected to more "aggressive" interrogation techniques? Is Talbott ready to take responsibility for thousands of American lives? Even former President Clinton, in an radio interview with NPR, suggested that the president should be able to "take personal responsibility to authorize torture" in an extreme situation. Given the high stakes involved in the war with terrorists, I believe the president of the United States or the leader of any country should have and use any and all means necessary to keep its citizens safe.

Seriously, "24" needs to begin with some kind of "this has nothing to do with reality" disclaimer. fark that show.
2007-11-09 12:24:35 PM  
Surprisingly, that was pretty good. Unlike most of original videos that get linked around here...Super Deluxe I am looking your direction...
2007-11-09 12:26:40 PM  
That was not unfunny.
2007-11-09 12:27:54 PM  
Three things, then you can get off my lawn:

CVS bought out Eckerd's in this decade, so the photos would have been there.

Windows 3.1 was old-school in 1994. They would have had Windows 3.11.

Someone should have been using gopher to access to get the schematics.
2007-11-09 12:28:26 PM  

It's a fine show. And I'm one of the most anti-torture people you'll meet. Blaming 24 for anyone's desire to enable torture for the "ticking-bomb" scenario is just as bad as blaming Grand Theft Auto for a kid going nuts and killing someone. The responsibility for appropriate reaction to media is on the viewer/player, not the creator.

Go to AOL keyword "MAPS"

Is that a channel sir?

2007-11-09 12:34:28 PM  
I think the only time torture would be justified is if the torturer feels that it is important enough that he would risk going to prison for doing so. If a cause is important enough that you would die for it, I'd think you'd also be willing to go to prison for it. If somebody tortures a terrorist to save thousands of lives, let them have a jury trial, if it was truly justified no jury would convict. As soon as there are legal reasons to torture someone, those reasons can be expanded upon to justify torture for lesser reasons.
2007-11-09 12:34:32 PM  
As a die hard 24 fan suffering the demise of Kiefer's 48 day sentence and the current writer's strike, I am NOT getting a kick.....whatever.

That was freakin' awesome!!!!

I'd like to check this link out but I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME!

TransFarkers: ummm. wtf was that Squelching noise??

You're referring to the modem handshake sound, right? Have you never heard it before? I guess if you're young enough, or if you used a system with a modem with no speaker...

I don't think anyone "blames 24" for the current U.S. interrogation policies. Hell, I don't think many people say that torture shouldn't be authorized in a true "ticking time bomb" scenario. But what 24 does, by giving a popular portrayal of this scenario every season, is bring it closer to home and make it less of an abstract possibility to be dismissed in the formulation of a general torture policy. Any debate on torture nowadays would inevitably inspire the question, "so what, you'd send Jack Bauer to jail? Get outta here." And yea, I blame 24 for that.

I had a cellphone in 1993.

I also had internet access with the beta versions of NCSA Mosaic.

Ahh yes. The good ol' "ends justify the means" logic.
