Thanks to everyone who came to the Chicago Fark Party this past weekend. The turnout was the most we've ever had for a Fark shindig, there were definitely more than 200 folks there, maybe more than 250 even. I drank about a dozen beers so math was hard. Thanks go out to Naskar, who may be king douchebag but he managed to pull off the highest attendence Fark party ever. He also managed to throw up on a train but you'll have to ask him about that.
We will definitely do something like this again, stay tuned.
I'm currently hanging out in Armenia of all places with Alexis Ohanian, the guy who founded Reddit. Travel out wasn't too bad other than the solid 24 hours of travel, 14 hours of being on planes, and the 9 hour timezone difference. I'm keeping notes about the travel and will post a longer update next week. Current plans are for me to get to England sometime next week and be at the EuroFark party April 24th in London. I spent a bunch of time trying to learn the Armenian alphabet so I could at least read street signs but it's really hard. Only a couple of letters resemble romanian or cyrillic counterparts, and there are a few consonant letters that we don't have in English.
So far this trip I have learned that in France, airline refueler strikes only slow down takeoffs by about 10 minutes and that Air France has no problem showing boobs on French TV shows on flights out of France. Everyone was super friendly in Paris too, probably had something to do with me at least trying (and failing) to speak the language. I think I may have to change my opinion about the French.
Much more next week.
