factoryconnection: PeriRies:

I caught it at a mere 180-some posts, before it blew the f*ck up. (i'm so original, I know!) There was quite a flood of sponsored, half-wit Farkettes (and Alts) that appeared on TF in the days following. It made for some entertaining, welcome-thread meat grinders. No long term effects on either liter or total Fark.


Of course, and I knew that then as I'm sure you did too, but the incessant wailing in the days shortly after the thread happened got to be a bit too much mellowdramafail for me.

Right now, there's a little stpickrell dressed in red, perched on my left shoulder, telling me to say something snarky. The stpickrell dressed in white and playing a harp is telling me to be nice to people I don't even know.

SarahL: Vide Infra: Forget about nerd/anti-nerd girl issues.

The reality is, "nerds" are not, all of a sudden, sexy de facto. Unless the person is sexy to begin with, they are not now sexy because they have a degree in Chemical Engineering.

What has happened is "nerdiness" has simply failed to disqualify someone from being sexy as it may have done in the past (wrongfully, to be sure).

End of story.

Now....when will the due attention be paid to the amazons of the world?

Like I said earlier, Amazon was a nickname for me in high school.


Yes, but have you cut off one breast and come with your own strapon?

Starryeyes:

i know, i know. i really meant that at first glance one would not immediately be able to gauge my level of nerdiness because i hide it well.


The best kind to be.

Can you read assembler?

Of course.
Understanding what it does, however.. ;)

That is, I only used MIPS and a bit of uh..I think it was for a Motorola 68something..for a lecture and a hardware lab in university and not really "in the field".
But I actually liked to be close to the hardware for a change and to push bits around and finally understand some articles in the old C64 and Amiga magazines I got just for the discs with games about 20 years ago.

Maybe it is because I am really confident in my manhood, but, I really appreciate a woman who does not feel as if I am going to break her in half.

Waif are for wussies.

No, this does not translate into I love BBW.

Rather, I just like a tall, athletic woman who knows how to go a couple of rounds in Judo.

/Perhaps this is because I saw "Goldfinger" at an early age?

What a foolish statement. If you're not still amazed by nearly every sighting, you're doing it wrong. The fail is on you. "boobies" are wonderful and there is no enough.

I feel like one of these days I should update my profile. I'm not much of a profile lurker like I've been to fark in general for years.

It just wouldn't be right until I take a high contrast or b/w myspace shot.

That's why that site sucks so damned bad.

It would seem, looking at the photos posted, that Fark men don't actually like nerdy girls, they like hot girls dressed as nerds. Weak.

With you writing it, every. single. branch. option. would be something like:

"To ask her to show you her tits, turn to page 53."

or

"To drop your pants and just stand there to see what she does next, turn to page 16."

Sarcasticus: Whatever. What makes women attractive is how they look. If you wanna say hot chicks with glasses are nerds... go right ahead.

Pretty much.

I think I got frustrated at the whole "nerd-girls are sexy" movement because I saw too many girls doing it because it was trendy...

/Now authentic nerd-girls are still appreciated.

I've been watching this all morning and what a great thread it's turning out to be. I can affirm that I also am a huge fan of hot Nerd Girls as well as many other girl type. I conside myself equal opportunity in that respect.

Towards that end, I would like to officially submit my request for any and all BIE. I consider BIE to be the ultimate honor and will or course hold each farkette in the highest esteem. Do not let any preconceived notions (of nerd status of otherwise)keep any willing participant from sending BIE. Again, I am equal opportunity in all respects.

There are many farkettes I'd love to see (more) of posting here.

Fluff Girl, its too bad you are not in the right place today. I've been hoping for your generosity to be shared for a long time.

I've always appreciated the literature and stuff, but it's just not my forte. I like doing engineering and I'm good at it, so why not do the one that brings in money for lots of toys.
