Gig103: So it looks like it took Fark 3 years to get the first million, but 4 years to get an additional three million. Wow.

It's almost as if the longer a website is online the larger the userbase becomes and the site's usage accelerates accordingly. WHOA.

This is all a giant conspiracy. Thread 4,000,000 is hiding the Roswell aliens, and the dynamite used to demolish the twin towers, and my car keys. God damnit, sheeple, wake up! Drew works for THE MAN!

All that's in Ultra Fark is email. I found that out today.

I am posting solely to be part of what could be an epic thread.

/as a slight threadjack, when did we get ultrafark email? That's awesome.

Short version on that one is we changed adsense accounts and it reset all the filters, so we're rebuilding them by hand as we catch bs ads. So if you see any get the img url and the dest url and email em to me, we'll filter them out pronto. Tho I'm told it takes 72 hours for the filter to update (for no good reason)

Wow. FOUR million. That's a four, followed by SIX freakin' zeros.

To count to four million, at the rate of one number per second, it would take more than 46 DAYS, nonstop.

If you lived four million hours, you'd be over 456 years old.

Want to travel four million miles? You'd have to make more than 166 trips around the earth, at the equator.

And here we are, at FARK's four-millionth submission. That's a hell of a milestone. I lurked for a few months, then I joined FARK in February 2002 and TF in 2004. Since then I have laughed and cried and made friends here, all because of simple words and pictures that show up on my screen.

I've lost count of the miles I've driven and airplane tickets I've bought to places like Pasadena and Charleston and Atlanta and Chicago, to meet you guys. And I can't wait to do it again.

My job productivity has gone to hell most days, all because of pickle incidents and TeenhealthFX questions and TotalFark happy hours and calamari and incest threads and clamcakes and testicle-trapping chairs and MS Paint and a squirrel with a big ol' nutsack.

Things have changed. People have come and gone. It looks a lot different than it used to. Some good folks were able to 'get over it,' some weren't.

To Drew and the others responsible, I say congratulations and thank you.

Four. Farkin'. Million.
