I don't want anybody else, but when I think about you I touch myself...

Sorry, I just thought that picture from the article was hysterical...
2001-09-19 12:48:06 PM  
Uh, why didn't they attempt to have it professionaly restored before they "played" it? If the tape is already falling apart, running it through a machine isn't going to be the best thing for it.
2001-09-19 12:56:02 PM  
Fooshnik-Because then it would be clear that the moon landings were faked and actually conducted in Arizona.
2001-09-19 12:58:04 PM  
Bad tape, bad! Go sit in the corner!
2001-09-19 01:01:05 PM  
hmm, I get:

Network error
Unable to request URL from host Connection refused

can anyone post a summary of the article? or better yet, fly me over to the UK and let me use a machine over there?

btw - my boobies... my parents are proud.
2001-09-19 01:05:00 PM  
aparently the words first and post together form the word "boobies"... finally NOW I understand.
2001-09-19 01:05:33 PM  
What about your boobies, Ansiz?
J/K...I'm sure your parents are very proud of them.

Ahahahahahaha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!

That gets me every time!

Gotta love the Boobies filter!

It's the tape where the cardboard Earth cutout in the background's string snaps and it falls behind the paper mache mountains!
2001-09-19 01:31:08 PM  
Yeah but this whole thing was faked on a NASA soundstage!! Did I mention the Earth is flat, too?
2001-09-19 01:31:21 PM  
This is our Governments response to Fox's Moon Landing Conspiracy Theory. It's more lies!!!
2001-09-19 01:34:54 PM  
Crill: friggin hilarious...I can't stop laughing.
2001-09-19 01:36:02 PM  
Wait, they lost an eight track on moon?
2001-09-19 02:02:26 PM  
"Tense moments before the touchdown..."
2001-09-19 02:51:47 PM  
Maybe the Nigerians found it when they went to the moon. I bet they found a flag too!
2001-09-19 02:58:32 PM  
It was scheduled for release back in the 70s, but you know how post-production goes on Skywalker Ranch...
2001-09-19 03:05:52 PM  
This sounds like photoshop fodder!
All we need is a few good moonlanding pictures....(!)

Don't look at me, I don't have photoshop.
(*sniff sniff*)

boobies = boobies

2001-09-19 03:37:04 PM  
Disregard this post...trying to make sense of this much talked about boobies filter.

2001-09-19 03:39:37 PM  
OK, how did Demosthenes get around the filter? Is he l33t or something? Not that I know what that means either.

I feel like such an outsider :(

boobies boobies boobies

He interposed a transparent font tag. Very clever.
2001-09-19 04:05:54 PM  
&ltevil laugh>


</evil laugh>

On a more serious note, at first glance, I thought the headline for this farkticle read "Lost Moonlighting tape found".... I was expecting to read an article about Cybil Shepard and Bruce Willis.....
2001-09-19 04:07:33 PM  
Martin Luther: Ahhh... "view source" strikes again!

I thought it was clever too...
2001-09-19 04:51:08 PM  
So uhh... did anyone at NASA actually make a copy of this recording?
2001-09-19 05:04:37 PM  
edit from the "missing moonlanding tape":

"mr. kubrick wants to do another take!"
"okay, take 93, actors into positions!"
"action, neil!"
2001-09-19 05:07:27 PM  
I thought it said, "lost moonlighting tape found"! Who gives a fark, i thought...
2001-09-19 05:31:40 PM  
Grasshopper:What do you mean Arizona? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Everyone knows it was filmed in Sudbury, Ontario.
2001-09-19 07:04:34 PM  
What in tarnation is an interposed transparent font tag!?
2001-09-19 07:17:14 PM  
It means "l33t".
2001-09-19 07:17:41 PM  
2001-09-19 07:27:13 PM  
So where was the tape the whole time, the nase space couch?
2001-09-19 07:30:59 PM  
if you see one, make sure you edge away from it very slowly and carefully...and whatever you do, DON'T look it in the boobies..
2001-09-19 07:32:43 PM  
2001-09-19 08:34:25 PM  
He used an html font tag in between the two filtered words, so the filter didn't pick it up.

A font tag changes the font of the html. This font tag is "transparent" because it said "color=black", but the color is already black, so you can't see the difference. Nothing that you see was changed.

Again, I say, clever.

After a while, you get so used to typing random invisible HTML tags inside of "verbotten" Fark-words, you don't even realize you're doing it.... I catch myself doing it on other forums, where I don't even need to.... ;-)
2001-09-19 09:45:05 PM  
demosthenes is a he?

you can also do this:
(Grumman or someone w/similar name was running around w00ting about that)

2001-09-19 09:49:06 PM  
nice misuses:

I had to get something off my chest, so read my boobies

my boobies, my parents are so proud
2001-09-19 10:17:42 PM  
I hear ya, Stebain.... those two both farking killed me.... it makes the filter all that much more worth it....

And yes, I am a "he".


Not that there's anything wrong with that....

2001-09-19 11:48:33 PM  
I was thinking of Demosthenes42_0 when I questioned your gender.
terribly sorry
2001-09-19 11:49:02 PM  
for any others clicking the link, she is on the right w/HATT on
2001-09-20 09:51:31 AM  
That's all right, I get that a lot, Stebain. You should see some of the e-mail I get.... sheesh.

I hate it when people take names that are basically the same as mine....
