its all happening... where's your god now afghanistan? show him to us. Or are you gonna let us keep spitting in his face? Bring that shiat on.
2001-10-07 09:57:35 PM  
Wow! It's true. People really are stupid.
2001-10-07 09:57:50 PM  
Am I loosing my mind? I could have sworn, I saw and clicked on a link (on the front page) that said that Brittney (however you spell it) Spears got killed in a car wreck. Then I came back, and it was gone. WTF! did it happen or not. shiat I know that I am not that drunk!
2001-10-07 09:58:53 PM  
It was a fake article and was pulled quickly..
2001-10-07 09:59:49 PM  
Ok, thanks Cyc66. I thought I was goining insane. wffeef.
2001-10-07 10:00:41 PM  
Hehehe that was a sweet hoax. Good job whoever pulled that shiat off :)
2001-10-07 10:03:02 PM  
haha it wasn't funny but it sorta was.. in the article it said that justin timberlake was under the influence of controlled substances, and that brittney was doing something that might have made him not pay attention to the road... it said "We don't know what happened it seemed like all the sudden he veered to the right"
2001-10-07 10:03:35 PM  
OK, let's get back to Tony. I saw a few seconds of the speech when I was in the break room at was the first I'd heard. I say, "pave the road!"
2001-10-07 10:04:06 PM  
Batmn42, I agree good hoax. Had me going. But then again, I think the smurfs live under my bed. I will tell Smurfette you said HI as I grind her little.......
Oh, back to reality. Sorry.

One word: Blueberry.

Dumbo, im not stupid, just angry. I'm tired of osama calling us sinners, and the great satan, im tired of people celebrating when something bad happens... What kinda religon is that? Its a religon of hate (or at least the version of it those people practice) I'm ready for justice.
2001-10-07 10:06:17 PM  
Here's the pulled link, just in case anybody wants to see it.

It's just a ghost of BRITNEY SPEARS IS NOT DEAD, if you are dumb enough to read my comments and then click that link and still believe it. Click on the "Diassociated Press" link at the bottom...

What I'd really like to read, however, are the two comments that appeared next to the farkticle before it was pulled. Apparently, the comments thread it linked to didn't exist, but when I first saw it, it said 0, and then once when I reloaded it said 2. What were those comments (if they were real)? Did somebody say boobies?

And of course the question behind door number 3 is, has fark been hacked? Bin Laden, you bastard!! I say Farkistan declares a state of war!
2001-10-07 10:06:39 PM  
The US may have the bulk of the forces out there (and as well they should, they deserve to lay the smackdown in retaliation), but i`d bet a lot of those cruise missile targets were found and tagged by the SAS.
Their experience in the region will be pretty damn valuable now that things have got started.

Watched a great programme on the BBC before about how the Taliban have farked up peoples lives there, especially the poor women(saw one get beat with a metal pole because she showed too much arm or something), its about time the world gets rid of them.
Lets kick butt!

I gotta give Drew and the Fark crew props for knocking that hoax off so quick. I read it without noticing the fine print at the bottom, and then went to other news sites to verify, when I found none I came back and it had already been removed. Then I went back to my history and read the print at the bottom. (how did they get the url so close to the real CNN?)

Whatever your feelings about her, that was a pretty damn tasteless prank. Good job, Drew.
2001-10-07 10:09:35 PM  
We should send Brittney into Afghanistan. She'll convert them all. (Oops! She did it again..)
2001-10-07 10:10:39 PM  
anybody else smell photoshop fodder?

So why am I getting 3 porn pop-ups when I go to the CNN site?
2001-10-07 10:15:56 PM  
they always get bad pictures of him.... he seems pretty cool though.
2001-10-07 10:16:00 PM  
If only that Britney article were true. I wouldn't mind if the terrorists knocked her off.

Clarification: self-open-upon-close porn site windows. Ones that automatically start a "save as" window for free_sex_viewer.exe...

Get Ad-Aware, scan your system, scan for viruses too.
Hit windowskey+R and type msconfig, then check if any odd programs are loading at startup, disable them. In the run dialog type drwatson too to see if any odd programs are running in the background.

If not then you IE has been hacked by something and you should reinstall.
2001-10-07 10:47:16 PM  
Using Netscape 6.1, and I run McAfee.
2001-10-07 11:06:20 PM  
I laugh at you.
2001-10-07 11:10:58 PM  
I run both IE and Netscape... they're both just as good as the other. And Netscape's autocomplete on the web addys is faster.
2001-10-07 11:14:21 PM  
Netscape sucks. Get Opera.
2001-10-07 11:17:57 PM  
I think that Mr. Blair is a better speaker than Mr. Bush, though Mr. Bush's speach writers have my everlasting admiration. I don't believe Mr. Bush will ever say "whilst" nor look quite so human as Mr. Blair does as he speaks. Both gave great speaches today.
2001-10-07 11:20:10 PM  
English accent = intelligence?
Texan accent = mental slowification?
2001-10-07 11:32:39 PM  
Of course, because if someone is different from you they are obvously stupid qinopio lol

Arent they?
2001-10-07 11:43:04 PM  
I'll have a Moosehead, Foster's and Guiness tomorrow at lunch.
But fark the French caberet as it runs.

Wonder what Winnie would write about this in his History of the English Speaking Peoples. As to all the other countries' contributions, I'll have a margarita with my babybacks tomorrow. Boy those Taliban spokesmen in Pakistan lookes a little spooked. I think things are going to be OK at least in the long runs.
2001-10-08 12:13:32 AM  
Yeah, Blairs speech was more fact and "you guys are dead meat" than Bush`s.
Plus, no cheesy made up story from a schoolgirl to yank at the heartstrings.
2001-10-08 12:56:29 AM  
Great speech by a great man.

I was wondering about the site posting, though.

I distinctly remember him referring to the number of U.K. citizens killed in the WTC atrocity as the greatest killed in history in the live version.

Is this site an edited version of the 'news?'
2001-10-08 01:52:30 AM  
It's not just accent. It's what speech teachers call elocution. His speech was much crisper, and he sounded much more in control of what he was saying. Bush sounded like he had memorized his, almost, and kept forgetting what part came next. But, still, it is better. His speeches pre sept. 11 were really awful, these were just....bland. I have hope he will improve. We should also start linking to pages with video clips for those of us who would rather listen then read. (when not at work)
