(Daily Mail)   Remember this week's story about the cunning plan to assassinate the Queen with a log? Well, somebody smoked a huge bowl and imagined what would have happened if they succeeded. Dude, radical   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 43

A cunning stunt?

Yep. It ends with "GET TO THE CHOPPA!"

If they succeeded, then another ugly, pompous, irrelevant and antiquated douche would take the place of the Queen, thus perpetuating the ridiculous cycle. The end.

I dated a girl whose undercarriage looked like that. Yup, she reminded me of my mother alright.

What if instead of the Queen on the train it was the 1985 Denver Broncos? How would that have changed history? Would Franco have taken advantage of the upheaval in Denver to purchase the franchise? These are the things we should be thinking about.

What about if Reggie Jackson had succeeded back in 1988?

Dude, a log is like the least lethal thing in Australia to have thrown at the Queen.

Deadly log? It's more likely than you think.

simpsonfan: Meh, what if the man alleged to be Lee harvey Oswald somehow missed, and the CIA/KGB/Mafia/Cuban/Chinese/whoever assassin supposedly on the grassy knoll couldn't get a clear shot at the limo speeding off, so just shot LBJ instead?

The Constitutional ammendment which includes appointing a new Vice President had not yet taken effect. The Speaker of the House would be next in line until january 20, 1965.

JFK runs for re-election, wins, with a new VP, ends the Vietnam war, and gets to see the US land a man on the Moon, on Christmas Day, 1968 and returning him safely back to Earth, before he dies in office, suffering a massive coronary during a White House swimming pool orgy on New years Eve.

The VP, Democrat Hubert Humphrey does something classy, appointing the President-elect, Republican Ronald Reagan as his VP, then resigns after just a few days in office. Trivia buffs rejoice.


Kennedy wasn't doing well in Texas, which was why he was in Dallas in the first place. None of the things you predicted would have happened. In fact the last paragraph makes no sense at all.

I'm sure they'd outlaw logs long before that ever had a chance to happen.

This kind of statement would have a little more weight to it if the ceremony surrounding the swearing in of a new president wasn't such a pathetic imitation of the coronation of a new monarch.

Don't see how Franco would have managed to take Gib seeing as it's a hollowed out mountain turned into an impregnable fortress and in the 1970s the Spanish army was top heavy with too many officers commanding ill trained conscripts.

The rest of Roberts article I liked, if not believed. I love 'what if' histories.

The only really implaysible part is a son of Charles and Camilla marrying Diana Spencer. Going by the article, he'd be 25 at most and she'd be 39 in 2001.

And by "undercarriage" you must mean...that's disgusting! Your mother?

He wrote a good book on Waterloo. And his entries in the two "What if?" books are also good.

I used to visit the Foobies tab before seeing the other Fark tabs, because there was an easy in-page link to regular Fark on the page. Thanks to the whoring-up to Mr. Skin, the Foobies tab has become just like any other free-tits web page which doesn't link to Fark. Goodbye, Foobies bookmark/favorite.

It's not the Mr.Skin feedback page, but there isn't one any more sophisticated than a page count, and only $5/monthers can comment on individual Foobie links. I'm sure the Mr. Skin page will get by with clicks from people with more tolerance for degredation than I have.

They'll start with one less, from me. And a stock rule of customer service is that for every customer who complains, there are 19 others who won't bother to complain - they'll simply take their business elsewhere, silently.

I understand why the Fark main page stopped including a Foobies tab. Why did the Foobies tab stop including a Fark main page tab? I'll never know.

This. Thank you!

For halloween last year my friend dressed up like the log lady - it was awesome. He was creepier than the log lady, backwards talking dwarf and Bob combined.

That would make a great Harry Turtledove novel.

A profoundly disturbed House of Commons was told by Home Secretary Roy Jenkins that Britain had suffered the greatest loss of life in a civil disturbance since the Gordon riots of 1780 - this was when, in a disturbing parallel, Protestants had marched on Parliament in their tens of thousands against the rise of popery, and hundreds of rioters were shot dead by soldiers.
