Actually.. I think it's pretty neat.
2001-10-25 12:16:03 PM  
Ho ho ho, "the vibrating function", eh, nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more! When will that joke ever get old?
2001-10-25 12:17:23 PM  
2001-10-25 12:19:06 PM  
Badger: are you talking about the vibration joke, or my Monty Python reference?
2001-10-25 12:19:17 PM  
Very old news.
2001-10-25 12:21:34 PM  
can you set it to detect only guys who are single and aren't old, ugly and/or obese?
2001-10-25 12:21:45 PM  
$29 is a bit expensive for a practical joke, but wouldn't it be great to slip one into, say, Jerry Falwell's coat pocket?
2001-10-25 12:22:08 PM  
how about a device for women who want to be farked by men!
2001-10-25 12:23:29 PM  
First experience with the term was Bender on Futurama - but that was funny...
2001-10-25 12:24:39 PM  
Anyone see the episode of The Daily Show where they interviewd the invento of Gaydar several months ago?
2001-10-25 12:25:34 PM  
Say no MORE! (wink wink)

Good, that would make hunting them much easier.
2001-10-25 12:38:05 PM  
I caught that one. They kept asking the kid "Now are you SURE you're not gay?"

2001-10-25 12:38:17 PM  
Great Idea Fooshnik!!

But, what if your wife/girlfriend finds that in your pocket... I'd like to watch that conversation go down...

"Not that there's anything wrong with that..." ;-)
2001-10-25 12:40:54 PM  
It's almost like having a secret handshake
This idea could be used for all types of groups...
2001-10-25 12:41:17 PM  
TLBreer : I saw that episode of The Daily Show.
Didn't the inventor swear up-and-down he wasn't gay?
But, John caught him off guard with a few questions that
led you to think he actually was gay!
2001-10-25 12:46:59 PM  
Farkdar, lets you know when other farkers are in the area.
2001-10-25 12:49:06 PM  
Jeez this is old!
2001-10-25 12:54:08 PM  
Mr Smithers - I've never gone behind Mr Burns' back before, but Sideshow Bob's ultra-conservative views, uh, conflict with my...choice of lifestyle.
2001-10-25 12:54:48 PM  
I should modify my shirt to read 8", Ladies Only... They should have these for every personality category. I'd love to meet up with a few more people on the verge of a homicidal rampage.
2001-10-25 12:57:08 PM  
Jeez, what'snext? Pink triangles? If they make this, you should be able to set it to "gay," "straight," "married," or "Trekkie." Plus each should have a personal ID, so you can drop some anonymous stranger an e-mail like, "Saw you on the 9 train. Love your hair. I was the one wearing the crotchless chaps."
2001-10-25 12:59:25 PM  
The link ( goes to porn. Hehehe.
2001-10-25 12:59:35 PM  
"on the verge of a homicidal rampage."

Sweet.....can I watch?
2001-10-25 12:59:49 PM  
This sounds like the electronic version of the sound that immortals hear on Highlander whenever another immortal gets near. It would be sweet if they pulled out swords and fought to the death whenever they go too close.
2001-10-25 01:03:08 PM  
"sweet if they pulled out swords and fought to the death whenever they go too close."

Be careful what you wish for when it comes to gay men and pulling out swords...
2001-10-25 01:03:46 PM  
Fooshnik - Ha Ha
There can be only Bum !
2001-10-25 01:04:38 PM  
Uhh, Fooshnik, what swords are we talking about here? The mental image of two gay guys "swordfighting" is freakin' me out.
2001-10-25 01:05:38 PM  
Maybe a DemocratDar so you could tell without asking when someone is about to lie
2001-10-25 01:05:41 PM  
"Although lesbian comedian Kate Clinton concedes that some people could use Gaydar for all the wrong reasons, she prefers to see the fun side."

Hahah. Fun side of murder?
2001-10-25 01:06:43 PM  
This is a slicker-looking (sorry about that) version of a little gadget that was for giggling tweens in Jr. High. You input your favorite color, food, movie, etc, and when it comes within range of someone with similar tastes, it would notify you that you could safely date and experiment with sex secure in the knowledge that someone who also likes the color blue couldn't POSSIBLY be wrong for you.
2001-10-25 01:07:21 PM  
that's so gay.
2001-10-25 01:08:29 PM  
Lordargent said - "Farkdar, lets you know when other farkers are in the area."

Damn, I needed that last Friday for the Austin FARK gathering. Walked around for 30 minutes before they found me...
As for gaydar, it's built in. Some homo told me, "you don't have what you won't use." Now WTF does that mean? If he was suggesting I need my gaydar to pick up guys or some shiat, I am going to find him and beat him with a midgette.
2001-10-25 01:08:33 PM  
Do you suppose this thing would continue to work if a guy shoved it up his rectum? I could see that happening
2001-10-25 01:10:42 PM  
Yeah - the safety thing is a double-edged sword. Fine - now you might not get punched for coming on to a hetero. But they could be easily misused, too.

What I think stinks about alot of these things, including the internet ("Blashpemer!"), is that you don't have to bother even getting to know other people. Our social skills are poor enough. I'll stick to conversation, thanks.
2001-10-25 01:13:37 PM  
Yeah, this was on the daily show. It was hilarious. The creator was this effeminate guy who SWORE that he wasn't gay. Truly.
2001-10-25 01:19:49 PM  
"Maybe a DemocratDar so you could tell without asking when someone is about to lie"

HAHA! I would buy that!
2001-10-25 01:23:20 PM  
This brings a whole new arena to the game "smear the queer"
2001-10-25 01:27:44 PM  
WorldCitizen "Be careful what you wish for when it comes to gay men and pulling out swords...Badger "Uhh, Fooshnik, what swords are we talking about here? The mental image of two gay guys "swordfighting" is freakin' me out." Yeah, I suppose I should've been much clearer given the context.   [image from too old to be available]
2001-10-25 01:35:30 PM  
I think that all terrorists should wear, like, a similar device..

That way we would, like, know where they are...

It would be, like, so kewl...

Cuz we could, like, shoot them alot easier.

They should make a combined device if the terrorist is
gay/lesbian that way they, like, don't have to get 2
different devices.
2001-10-25 01:35:47 PM  
Hahaha. That makes sense! Pretty cool idea, really.
2001-10-25 01:37:42 PM  
Pink PVC lederhosen and the music of the Village People have always been methods that have worked for me in the past.

How many elligible guys can you spot this evening using this method?
2001-10-25 01:43:29 PM  
personally....if it works....i think its a great idea. Oh...and for all the gay bashing guys....why is it ok for 2 girls to get together for pleasure but not 2 men? Why is it that makes you uncomfortable? Hmmm....sounds like someones not secure enough in thier masculinity.

Yeah, damn old.
2001-10-25 01:50:53 PM  
Ahhh, Fark just wouldn't be Fark without small-minded gayist threads like this.
Thanks guys!
2001-10-25 01:55:23 PM  
Ahhh, Fark just wouldn't be Fark without gaping-sphincter gay apologists like this.
Thanks guys!
2001-10-25 01:57:41 PM  
Just a warning everybody, just because someone is gay, does not make them a dream to look at.

And, as for all those who want to use these to aid in gaybashing, I say this. You can choose to love, or you can choose to hate. Right now, I think the world is needing a lot more love, since we have such a surplus of hate right now. If you agree, then leave people alone and let them love too.
2001-10-25 02:00:26 PM  
It wouldn't be Fark without the roast beef and gravy, egg noodles, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, rolls, and Guinness.
2001-10-25 02:00:47 PM  
It's OK for chicks to get it on because, hey, they're chicks and chick on chick action is sweet action.
2001-10-25 02:03:30 PM  
Ahhh, Fark just wouldn't be Fark without Bigpeeler tossing a verbal hand grenade into the crowd.
Thanks guy!
2001-10-25 02:06:13 PM  
What is to keep a gay basher from buying one and using it to look for gays in "mainsteam" places? What is to keep Fundamentalists (both Christian and Muslim) from using one? Do you have to be a "registered" homosexual?
