This is a post by an alt referencing an obscure verse from the Bible and making a stupid argument against the science mentioned in the article in an effort to troll other farkers.
 
2010-09-27 05:54:18 PM  
This is a not-so-funny last minute post just to say that the poster was here in a vain attempt to garner recognition of his existence on this website.

This is a request to all Farkers to abandon the original gist of the thread and instead post photographs of attractive human females, preferably wearing a minimum of clothing.

This is a post where I relate that I have just written something self referential, so I am getting a kick out of the replies.

This post is here to let a previous poster know that I've forgotten completely about the subject matter due to what the previous poster posted.

Comment that has nothing to do at all with the original post, but is somehow a conglomeration of seemingly random commenters

Somacandra: THIS IS A JOKE SUGGESTING SYMPATHIES FOR THE AUTHOR OF THE ARTICLE, WHO (IT IS ASSERTED) IS DEAD AND IS IN FACT WAS ALWAYS ANOTHER PERSON OF THE SAME NAME WELL-KNOWN IN SOME OTHER COMPLETELY UNRELATED CULTURAL ARENA.

/this is an extra comment informing readers that the posted image above is in fact hotlinked.


This is a comment on the above image informing all that the person was well-known in some other completely unrelated cultural arena.

/i.e., Marty Robbins was an auto racer
//good double-entendre, sir
///I saw what you did there

This is a highly opinionated post that was meant to be about the article but isn't - because I didn't RTFA.

Hasn't this joke got old the last three times we did it?

Klasik: Hasn't this joke got old the last three times we did it?

This is the post in which the age of the meme is defended, with the supporting claim that it is still funny, also you suck.

Klasik: Hasn't this joke got old the last three times we did it?

This is a crude remark regarding the alleged promiscuity of your mother.

Gullyborg: This is a comment in which I trick you into clicking on this link (new window).

This is the post where I point out that I already posted that meme, and in a much more clever fashion.
 
2010-09-27 06:25:32 PM  
Can I just interject and say that I've posted this story with a better headline?
 
2010-09-27 06:30:16 PM  
The whole thing has been done before, and much better, a long time ago:

This Is the Title of This Story, Which Is Also Found Several Times in the Story Itself (new window)

NotLinky: This is a highly opinionated post that was meant to be about the article but isn't - because I didn't RTFA.

This is an obiouse troll with choce mispellings.

This is a picture of a cat with a caption, except I don't know how to use an image host, so there's not actually a picture.
 
2010-09-27 07:04:17 PM  
This is a post defending the position that I am not posting here simply for the sake of coming back the the article to post later. Because it isn't.

This is a tenuous partisan attempt to turn a scientific discussion into a political one, by drawing a line and calling everyone on one side of it libtards or conservitards or whatever other stupid made up word that isnt funny or clever or purposeful or useful.

/just kidding, this is just a post so this thread appears in my 'myfark' tab and I can revisit it easily
 
2010-09-27 07:43:50 PM  
This post is "late to the game" and is therefore fairly narcissistic as, in all likelihood, few or no other Farkers will ever see it.
 
2010-09-27 07:55:17 PM  
This is a humorous comment that becomes blatant attention whoring for my porn site.

This comment will be an erroneous Kate Bush reference.
 
2010-09-27 08:01:38 PM  
This post is an almost (but not quite) word-for-word repetition of something someone else already said before, thus showing that I could not be bothered to actually read through the thread before commenting in it.
 
2010-09-27 08:07:25 PM  
This is an even later "late to the game" post that will likely not be read by any other Farkers, just like that guy a few posts up, showing that not only am I late to the game, but I am also too lazy to actually read through the thread before commenting on it.
 
2010-09-27 08:17:27 PM  
NicoFinn: Obvious AW post admitting things I would do with girl in above picture while making it blatant to the thread that I am also a girl.

Herein I state, using a TLA, that my electronic mail address is posted within my profile. I also solicit an electronic mail, sent to the aforementioned address, containing a photograph of mammaries which some Farkette (hopefully) desires to display.

this is a cultural reference that I thought obscure but which was merely irrelevant
 
2010-09-27 09:32:07 PM  
This is a post in which I remark that it is remarkable that this thread is still going...but appears to be dying. This is a comment on the fact that this saddens me.

This otherwise on-topic post gratuitously calls attention to the fact that its author is a female.

This is a lame attempt to have the last post.

This is a comment responding to a prior comment located near the beginning of the thread, ignoring the rest of the posted content in said thread.

This is a comment expressing admiration for the author in actually linking to "Never gonna give you up" in the related links section of his story.
 
2010-09-28 12:23:09 AM  
If the subject is politically sensitive this paragraph will contain quotes from some fringe special interest group of people who, though having no apparent understanding of the subject, help to give the impression that genuine public "controversy" exists.

This is the one that really irks me. NASA Will find some kind of planet thing, and it may have life; it may have aliens. But what does the news agency do? They go find some flat-Earthers and interview them denying that space exists. Dammit, everything doesn't have to be a debate.

Someone should write a book about this.

This is a post in which I declare that I'm late to this thread and then attempt to inject some humor while secretly hoping I get a last post for once.

/this is where I say giggity because everyone laughs at that
//that was the attempted humor

The clicking of the keys affirms the presence of EIP.

This is a comment by a late-comer in the discussion, smugly denying that his tardiness would indicate he was not in the rhetorical in-crowd, to begin with.
