i wonder how many times in this thread people have misspelled her name....
 
2001-08-26 05:27:03 PM  
She died. Some will care, some will not. That's simply the way it is. I think the passing of all those should be mourned, but, perhaps, I am the only person with feelings that aren't used to hurt other people. When I die, I want people to be laughing at my life, I'd feel better that way that I'm not making people mourn. But, again, that might just be me. Anyhow, I may contradict myself, but I'm simply going to go and have myself a good time. See ya.

Ham Salad..I would stick with the ham thing if I was you, being reminded of where the ham originated is better than being reminded of where the egg came from.

PhillyGuy:There are people who still actually watch MTV? I stopped watching it when they stopped playing music videos.


Sorry, PhillyGuy, but I can't share your dilemma of only watching MTV when they played videos. I'm only sixteen years old, so my memory's kinda weak.

Arslock: Id rather have someone laugh about me than be all upset. Funerals still bother me to this day, they're farking morbid. We should all be happy with the memories we have from the person/persons we've lost. There is no use in dwelling over they're death when they're in a better place.
 
2001-08-26 05:56:01 PM  
Wow, not making jokes about a person that died..that day....that's so pussy.

I'll tell you why people show more emotions when a celebrity dies than when Joe Shmoe. We know who the celebrity is, we've seen them on TV, we might have watched their movies/tv shows or listened to their music. We didn't know them in real life...but we knew their life.

We don't know Joe Shmoe's life. He's a faceless name on a paper. He's Joe Shmoe. Now, that doesn't mean his life was worth less than a celebrity's, it's just we didn't farking know him. Now if I read a book about Joe Shmoe's life, I'd probably feel the same as I do when I hear a celebrity died.

If a farker died (God forbid), I wouldn't say "Well people die everyday, tough shiat". That's pretty cold. But hey, we're all different...others and I respect life. I wouldn't make a joke about the homeless guy who died just the same as I wouldn't make a joke about a famous person who died.

I am such a fan of Scraping-Fetus. More jokes!

Since when has this website shown anything except disrespect to anyone? You want respect, go somewhere else. Respect has to be earned and since I didn't have a clue who she was, why should I respect her for anything? Personally, I could give a flying fark what anyone thinks or does after I'm dead.

Nope, planes don't explode in the air from being overweight. They also don't explode in midair for any reason except a bomb of some sort. It might stall due to an aft center of gravity (making it difficult to keep the nose down) or it might just not make the speed needed to get out of ground effect (within a wingspan of the ground) and explode when it hits the ground but even that's not very likely. Planes tend to burn on impact if they do anything besides crumple but as a general rule they don't explode.

*Gets up cheering and clapping for teh Walkman*
 
2001-08-26 06:08:23 PM  
I hope when some of you die, people make jokes about you.

If I die in a fire, please use this one:

Knock knock
Who's there?
Tooney.
Tooney who?
Tooney melt.
 
2001-08-26 06:08:42 PM  
So you're saying Oliver Reed died in a plane crash?
 
2001-08-26 06:08:54 PM  
If I die in a planecrash...I hereby give permission to post the photos on FARK. I hope that you all laugh at my mangled body and drink beer and smile in my name.

So there.
 
2001-08-26 06:14:55 PM  
jus to lighten things up: look!
 
2001-08-26 06:17:46 PM  
I want to stick my spoooooooooooooooooooooooooon in the Farking pudding
 
2001-08-26 06:25:39 PM  
Oh really Fetus I shouldn't "mess" wit ya?

Oh you are a big bad messageboard guy!

Men be scared

women be aroused

fetus is the messageboard-magic-guy
 
2001-08-26 06:30:31 PM  
When I die, I don't really care what people say or think about me. I just want my friends to get together and get drunk and laugh and not feel bad about it.
 
2001-08-26 06:39:56 PM  
Wow Walkman, I sure want to get on a plane with you. =)
 
2001-08-26 06:41:11 PM  

Max Headroom says: I'd F-F-F-Fark her body even if it were C-C-C-Cold
 
2001-08-26 07:08:17 PM  
Walkman,
have a beer, you hit the nail on the head.

Wolfanoz, thank you for the best use of max headroom in years.

Jordy099,
prison biatch
go do my laundry punk.
 
2001-08-26 07:13:11 PM  
Why should I be sad that she died? I didn't personally know her, and how many of the people that say we should respect her actually knew her? I say keep the jokes coming.
 
2001-08-26 07:16:47 PM  
If the plane crash didn't kill her I am sure that the aspartame in all the diet drinks that she drank would have caught up to her eventually.
 
2001-08-26 07:18:01 PM  
Scraping-fetus: I even tried to find the right picture for it, thanks... ;-)
 
2001-08-26 07:21:07 PM  
She was about as talented as playing the cowbell for Blue Oyster Cult.
 
2001-08-26 07:22:54 PM  
So Princess Di walks into a bar with a dog under one arm and a salami under the other and asks the barkeep, "Why is Aaliya's body lying on the pooltable in the back room?"
 
2001-08-26 07:30:32 PM  
Um, well I was trying to explain why some people feel sad...I'm not saying you should feel sad. People have the right to be sad as they do to make jokes for shock value.

Last time I checked fark.com wasn't "only about disrespecting the dead", it's a variety of opinions and I was defending one.

Sorry if that's too shocking.
 
2001-08-26 07:37:54 PM  
FRKBOY said "My opinion, you should have respect for everyone one. Disrespect should be earned. "

fark man, I agree. I love that, I'm going to steal it from you. =)
 
2001-08-26 07:40:13 PM  
Go do your laundry Scrape?

I already finished cleaning your bed sheets they had a lot of semen and blood on them, what kinda party where ya having
 
2001-08-26 07:49:34 PM  
I don't know about you, but I can always use a little more cowbell.


Three guys and a girl are marooned on a desert island. After one week, the girl is so ashamed of what she's doing, she kills herself.

After another week, the guys are so ashamed of what they're doing, they bury her.

After another week, they're so ashamed of what they're doing, they dig her up again.



Two guys are walking down the street and see a dog on the lawn, licking his balls.

One guy says to the other, " Man, I sure wish I could do that".

The other guy says, " Don't you think you ought to pet him first?"
 
2001-08-26 07:56:02 PM  
Guy driving down the road from work sees this hooker and decides to get a little action before going home. Lets the hooker in the car and she asks "How much ya got?. Guy digs through his pants and wallet and finds five bucks. Hooker says, "Well, for five bucks I can give you a Penguin". He's like, "Penguin? What the fark is that?" The hooker takes the five bucks and pulls the guys pants and undergarments down to his ankles and gets him all excited. Just as she is about to go down on him she runs out of the car.

*guy waddling down the steet after her with his pants around his ankles* HEY WAIT, WHATS THE PENGUIN
 
2001-08-26 08:04:47 PM  
ViciousDarling: sure, are you offering?
 
2001-08-26 08:06:15 PM  
If only it were Britney Spears. And Christina Aglirarahiyahaga. And the Backtrees Boys and Nsink. 'twould be the most conclusive proof that God does exist.
 
2001-08-26 08:09:38 PM  
NexR, that is soooo old. I heard that in grade school.
 
2001-08-26 08:12:45 PM  
FETUS I am so glad to know that there is at least one Farker who is not a complete pussy and is able to realize that death is funny.

You rock.

I'm not happy she died- I just don't give a fark about her or anyone else. Now, if she were Mormon I would be SOOO happy!
 
2001-08-26 08:17:58 PM  
The pilot was pissed that Aaliyah beat her in Counterstrike.
 
2001-08-26 08:34:27 PM  
BigP I know it was pathetic, but I was hoping someone would continue from there.

::hangs his head in shame::
 
2001-08-26 08:35:44 PM  
Neutrino...you are correct! I am *very* sorry to have deposited sperm into your ugly mother's snatch. (It smelled awfully bad...but she paid very well--twice!) You have no respect for life, ya little snot...so I'm gonna rag your dumb ass until you piss off.

Until then, get an education. Make your crackhouse whore Mom proud.

You pissed off the WRONG guy, pinhead. I pity your dumb ass.

This heads for you...(now you females dont take that the wrong way....but you can the right way if your in the mood)
 
2001-08-26 08:55:02 PM  
Damn, has Jelloboy opened a few new accounts? The usual friendly and humorous Fark banter has apparently been set aside and has been replaced with anger and hate and name calling. People have differing opinions on topics like this of course but is this really all necessary? I enjoy reading fark but this is just like a big aol chatroom with the usual 14 year olds tYpInG lIkE tHiS and telling each other "you suck". Go photoshop something and make some good positive use of your energy.

Aaliyah's last words:

"Someone set up us the bomb!"
 
2001-08-26 09:04:39 PM  
When I die i want people to make a big deal of it, but in a good way. No adoring women, no wailing and wearing of sackcloth, i want my wake to be the best party ever. Heck, I might even leave a wake beer budget in my will. "Thanks for being my friend/doing my taxes/sleeping with me, I'm gone now, so go get hammered!" I wouldn't want my name to become a sacred cow, I want my name and reputation to be treated the same way when I am dead, as it is while I'm alive. I doubt ANYONE wants that kind of treatment, or at the very least, they don't care...because they're dead.
 
2001-08-26 09:10:13 PM  
I tend to think she packed one too many clothes on board. Either that or someone had an extremely big ass that caused the crash.
 
2001-08-26 09:10:37 PM  
Groucho2,
Gee. I'm so sorry I made you angry.
Your witty retort about my mother was so hurtful.
Why must you be such a nasty person?
Does flaming others make you feel better about having lost your genitals in that accident?
I worry about you. People who harbor so much anger have been known to spontaneously combust.
Please don't be mad at me. It would just ruin my whole day if I knew that some cattle humper from Texas was angry with me. (Maybe I shouldn't have said "cattle humper." I know how sensitive you are...)

Seriously dude, if you get this worked up over what someone posts on FARK, maybe you should see a doctor and get yourself on some medication.

And don't worry about me "pissing off." I'll be here for a long, long time to come.

Have a good night! (I think Ol' Bessie is calling you. Or is that your wife? It's so hard to tell the difference sometimes.)
 
2001-08-26 09:15:20 PM  
I really hope people are as nice to you when you meet your firey death.. you F-U-C-K-S.

I weep for the future......
