BackAssward: EchoMike: /I worked entirely too long on this.

Sweet. I say it was well worth it. A labour of love is never a waste of time.


RayD8: This is what my mind's picturing.

At least it wasn't this (from Caddyshack if anyone doesn't recognize it):


Could've been worse.

BackAssward: KN: BackAssward: KN: BackAssward: KN: BackAssward: coledge college

Jesus Christ, I'm not even drunk...

Why not? It's Friday.

Lol, sure, Friday morning where you are working... Late Thursday over on my side of the continent. Anyway, I didn't say I wasn't tying.

tying? you must ty harder.

Yes ma'am! Still thinking of insults.

eh. If it's not Friday yet where you are, you must be about 3 timezones away, way too far to drive to hunt you down even if I felt all insulted.

Oh don't worry, I had that well in mind before *I* started poking (what could have been) a potentially psychotic bear with my Internet stick. I am also comforted that you'd have to cross a border to get here. Though, it is a nice city to visit :p, should you get in a murderous rage.

/I actually think I can guess the insult, however, it's more insulting than funny...


I'm not feeling all that murderous-y or rage-y at the moment. Mostly I'm just trying to stay awake.
/sorry to disappoint

Damn, not a hermaphrodite, doesn't have a murderous rage for me... I get no breaks in this world. Email in profile if you want to chat more to keep awake, Fark threads aren't the best place.

I hate Fark at this time of day, so few new submissions to keep interest. So few posters. However, EchoMike's photoshop was a welcome gem.

/As for the insult, lets just say I have been an adult male long enough to know what *not* to say to a female who is at a swimming pool.
//I can think of many things *not to say* in such a situation.
///Things that would likely result in me receiving bodily damage.
////They all pretty much follow a common theme.

So did she backtrace the guy? And more importantly, were the consequences ever the same?

/can only think of one.
Really? If you think there's anything that would make you do this, you should probably speak to a therapist.


If I haven't killed anyone I personally know yet, I doubt some goober on the internet is going to make me start now.

/so far, anyway.

EchoMike: /I worked entirely too long on this.

Photoshopping the crap out of her face was a nice touch.

Oh, FFS, either STFU or tell us what the horrible insult was. Christ, it's probably not that big of a deal. Out with it. You brought it up; stop being a tease. Put up or shut up.

I'm guessing it was something about how your dick was showing through your white bikini bottom.

Sorry, I am not usually this rude -- it's been a rough week. I'll be nicer tomorrow. (Still not yet midnight Thursday here.)

uncletogie: Second, how the fark did they magically determine his address and phone number from his posts?

I used to frequent an IRC chat room where we all knew each other fairly well. One of the folks lived a few hours away, when I was nearby we'd grab lunch or a beer. Someone had a birthday we'd send cards, the same for new family members and the like. We had a girl whom got all clingy on me over the course of a few weeks. Maybe I was being too nice when she was having a bad time and she took it for something else. I didn't like the way things were going so I bailed from the chat room. I get a call a few days later from my friend a few hours away. "Dude, she's on her way to see you". Oh lovely. My number was unlisted and she didn't have my address but she had an idea of where I worked. I said "mention something about my being on vacation", so he did.

I logon to the chat room under a different name and she's posting, wondering where I work. Guy says he's on vacation, supposedly going south. She wants to know where, they say "jacksonville or atlantic beach". She signs off. The next day she logs on again...."I'm at the sea turtle, where is he staying". She's driven 1200 miles over a couple of days and is really freaking out. After some mumbling she signs off. Once in a while she'd sign on asking for more info, like what I drive and stuff. After 2 days of sleeping in her car she drives home. Got some help after that. No more chat rooms for me after that.

That's fu*ked up. Glad you got out of it OK.

On second thought, that's not just fu*ked up -- it's damned scary.

At least you can't call her lazy...

That's the kind of GO GET'EM attitude we Americans have lost in our lazy ways...

See... even KN just doesn't have commitment...

No one's mentioned yet that the crazy runs in the family?

FTA: Police Chief Jim Clark told KTVO that Greathouse's mother, Susan Greathouse, 50, also of Kansas City, was arrested Thursday morning in Ottumwa for calling and harassing the same victim, Forrest Jamison.

Not only did she cross state lines to harass some dude from the Internet, she had her mom call and harrass him, too. That's a special kind of special.

And what pray tell, would that be? Stupid dumb-ass coont?

No, that's probably not what set her off, I hear in some trailer-parks that's actually a compliment (of sorts).

No, no... I know we can't know what set her off. I was wondering what was the one you could think of that would set *you* off.

I'll never tell. :) I've been on Fark long enough to know better.
/hint: it has something to do with an unfortunate incident involving my college roommate and a swimming pool.
