Well if you're going to race chairs, you might as well do it like that

2003-02-17 12:18:55 AM  
could be worse...could be just stool races.
2003-02-17 12:20:02 AM  
You're only saying Montana is boring because there's nothing to do there.
2003-02-17 12:20:02 AM  
i think that was on King of the Hill tonight..
2003-02-17 12:21:11 AM

2003-02-17 12:21:31 AM  
Just for the record, MT is hardly a boring place to live...

How much is the average price of a house in the MBPTL?

It might be worth it to live there amongst the quiet and witness protectives.

"Well Sam, the first place where they actually had barstool races was back in the Viking times."

2003-02-17 12:26:14 AM

2003-02-17 12:29:20 AM

Kamog: Just for the record, MT is hardly a boring place to live...

Not if your a militant rebel group, sure. You can do a lot with guns, open space and privacy.

and comments from Macker cause herpes....

Flattery gets you nowhere
2003-02-17 12:33:33 AM

next will be dart catching.
2003-02-17 12:40:23 AM  
If you think that's stupid, you should see what else they do in Montana in the winter.

Ski Joring.

I'm pretty sure there's a lot of alcohol involved in this also.
2003-02-17 12:47:50 AM  
I'm moving to Montanna soon. Gonna be a dental floss tycoon.
2003-02-17 12:53:30 AM  
Fark has been as boring as Montanna today.
2003-02-17 12:56:43 AM

Montana isn't boring.
I'm sitting here in my bathrobe drinking beer and reading Fark comments at 11:00 PM.
Uh... Never mind
2003-02-17 01:05:45 AM  
Nothing new...Have this in AZ as well...shiat it's prolly all over the place.
2003-02-17 01:16:03 AM  
AH! Thank God, I know have proof.
2003-02-17 01:22:34 AM  
Montana is awesome.
2003-02-17 01:31:08 AM  
Well being from Montana I am a bit biased but not often bored. Never tried bar stool racing but I have fallen, drunk as hell, off horses while playing broom ball. Broom ball is played like polo only the ball is a 3 foot diameter beach ball and you use brooms and mops to hit it. No one in their right mind plays it without several drinks in them. We also have a rule that each team gets to pick a gal from the party group to do mouth to mouth when a rider falls or is knocked off. It has caused some hellish bruises from desparate guys seeking attention.

Now as to the militant rebel group problem... there were 7 guys in the eastern part of the state and about 5 out west that talked tough for a bit and wrote some bad checks. The eastern group did manage to keep the FBI and press busy and feeling important for 3 months one summer. What amazes me is that anyone took any of that serious. Especially when you consider that people in large metro areas stay clear of certain parts of cities to avoid street gangs that number 30,000 in Portland and 70,000 in the LA area.

Tonguedepressor - As for land and house prices I call 10 acres, a house, shop and barn about 10 miles from town home. It has, privacy, a great view and a market value of about $150,000.

We lose a cat or dog to coyotes or a mountain lion on occasion (for real) and a herd of mule deer raid my haystack daily but other then that it's mostly peaceful. I put up with the deer because they give the dog something to chase and if a lion is around they keep it interested.
2003-02-17 01:43:22 AM  
That was on King of the Hill tonight...
2003-02-17 02:04:55 AM  
As a fellow farker from MT, I say...
shiat, whats the article about?
I'm drunk.
2003-02-17 02:14:23 AM  
It's either that, or dig up fuggin' dinosaur fossils in the badlands.
2003-02-17 02:21:33 AM  

I think it had something to do with the Bobcats doing indecent things with the livestock.
2003-02-17 02:22:59 AM  
Thnx Chaos213, will certainly consider it, especially the equine images. Doesn't sound boring. Sounds peaceful.
2003-02-17 02:43:32 AM  
Heh, more Montana farkers than I expected.. maybe a Montana Fark Party, to get together and drink too much Moose Drool?

2003-02-17 03:44:05 AM  
My GF is from Montana - she's a hoot. Spent Thanksgiving with her family - it was a lot of fun.

Wee for Moose Drool
2003-02-17 03:49:52 AM  
That's not all Montana does for excitement.

Testical Festival (Disclaimer: Some images in the galleries NSFW)
2003-02-17 09:14:46 AM  
Chaos213Macker who think we are all nut cases because he is an ignorant idiot. Well Macker, I've never been to Seatle, that is where your bio says you are from, should I just assume it's only a good to place to live if you are a Militant Feminist Now member Dike? Or maybe if you are a single mother who is sucking wefare checks from the government, or maybe only ignoranumises like you live there.. Should I just go on Sterotypes??? Get my point buddy?
2003-02-17 09:16:15 AM  
Ok, I think Fark is on the fritz because that is not how I posted my comment at all.. I just wanted to praise Chaos213 and Chastise Macker for being an Ingnoramus.
2003-02-17 09:19:16 AM  
Loligo - (from your bio) "will probably relocate and start over after hunting season ends in 2003" - now there is a real man, puts hunting season ahead of his life/career/job/etc... My kind of guy...hehe..

You only find guys like us up here in MT, ND, WY and the like.
2003-02-17 10:54:41 AM  
Montana is a depressing place to live.

Hamilton, Missoula, the entire Bitterroot Valley across to Deer Lodge and even up to Whitefish and Glacier - all very beautiful. If majesty was only enough.

If you are lower-middle class, make under $50,000 combined income yearly and own a small chunk of a land, a little old house and no asipirations of future grandeur, MT is your place. If you've got money, take it somewhere else. MT is no place for the rich.

That is responsible for a lot of tension among locals. Lots of Californians with gobs of money moving in and building mansions, only to move away a short time after; land raped and dotted with unnatural man made structures.

It's really not a fun place to live unless you are VEERY outdoorsy and content with having few social options available that don't involve cattle or irrigation pipes.

Really. Don't bother. Go skiing in Colorado or something.


I totally forgot to take my pills yesterday.

2003-02-17 11:33:33 AM  
I second localhost's post; it's desolate and uncultured...unless you're protesting bison.
2003-02-17 12:18:17 PM  
Holy smokes... never thought my hometown would be on fark..
2003-02-17 01:07:51 PM  
Montana is not boring.
--Montanan who spends 10 hours a day on Fark.

And you rich people--what 127. said. Take your farking money and your big fancy farking "summer cabins" that are 5000 sq. feet, that you only live in for two weeks in the summer, and get the hell out of here. You've driven up property values so high that poor people can't afford to live here anymore. Farking dipshiats have their second, or their third, home in Montana just so that they can take pictures of it to show everybody "their ranch in Montana" Farking ranchers live here year-round, do the work and walk through cowshiat when it's -30. Real people from Montana live here during the winter, when we can't find a job, when we have to plug our cars in or they won't start, and when the forest fires are choking us to death.
You want something that says "Montana?" I'll brand it on your ass--how's that?
2003-02-17 03:05:13 PM  
Montana can be boring to live in, but you just have to use your imagination. Take hikes, drink beer, plant a crop, drink beer, harvest a crop, drink beer. Where was I going with this? Anyway...Montana isn't always boring. Though I am just about through with living in Billings.

Oh, and Scapegoat and Fat Tire (not to mention Black Widow)own Moose Juice. Thank you. That is all.
2003-02-17 03:56:05 PM  
I enjoyed living in Montana.
2003-02-17 04:39:02 PM  
One of my favorite beers, Moose Drool is from Montana. And I am a big fan of Jake's in Billings.
2003-02-17 06:29:51 PM  
Montana women are hard to ride. They'll buck ya good.
