EngineerAU: Fark_Guy_Rob: GreenAdder: Fark_Guy_Rob: It is worth noting that the United States *did* create the internet.

I'm constantly amazed at how much other countries benefit from the United States and how ungrateful they are for it.

You're welcome.

It's also worth noting how many people use the Internet to make fun of computer nerds. They're both useless fights, and will get you nothing but angry.

Oh, I don't get angry over it. Just disappointed to be honest. I guess, as an American, it's difficult for me to imagine what it would be like to come from a lessor country; but I'm amazed that their ability to welcome our technologies and culture while immediately denouncing those same things. I mean, hey, it's no skin off my back; but like I said, it's pretty pathetic.

You sound concerned. Also since Fark is a web site, it is part of the World Wide Web, invented in Switzerland. Are you going to give them props or go back to using Gopher?


Come'on - let's be realistic here....

Nobody is claiming that the United States did *everything* and nobody else helped. I'm certainly not saying that. But I am saying people in other countries are really quick to forget just how much the United States has given them.

As for the World-Wide-Web argument; sure, the original proposals for how it should come together took place at CERN back in the 90s. As they described the 'World-Wide-Web' was text only. It wasn't until an American came along made things awesome with the Mosaic browser that went on to become Netscape.

That's how Poe's law works, though. Satire becomes indistinguishable from the real thing. That's why Conservapedia mods are batshiat crazy. They can't tell the difference between real edits and sarcasm.

And not just the U.S., but DARPA in particular. Years ago I heard Rush Limbaugh claim that nothing worthwhile had EVER come out of government involvement. Someone called in to say "What about the Internet?" to which he replied that the Internet had been invented by entrepreneurs and risk-takers.

Not that it's surprising that Rush was on the airwaves being ignorant, it's just the most directly and obviously wrong I've ever heard him be.

Yes and no. Basically, the guy draws up a ten chapter comic about him and his fiance getting two cats. And since he's a horror comic writer, he does it in horror style, even though horror has nothing to do with it.

That's what endears it to me. It's so damned weird. And I EAT IT UP

Praise choruses are un-Christian.

RLupin: It's sad/scary that it's impossible to tell REAL Christian websites, from crazy insane over-the-top parodies. I honestly have no idea whether the rambling, lunatic rantings on this page are meant as a joke, or are the actual thoughts and opinions of a Good Baptist American. There's little to no difference....


Came here to say this. It really is hard to tell the difference between a Christian being serious on the internet, and a skeptic doing a mocking parody of a Christian website.

This is like when I was a kid and we were moving to a new house. Mom did most of the packing, us kids mostly just got in the way. Dad really busted his ass though, doing all the heavy lifting, loading the truck, driving the truck, unloading the truck. I mean, it was actually pretty impressive; even now as a grown man I couldn't lift half of what my Dad could back then.

At the end of the day, anyone who isn't retarded would be able to see that my Dad had done several times as much work as my Mom and that us kids didn't actually contribute in any meaningful way. But yeah - it wasn't until *I* plugged in the TV that it was 'done'. So really, my contribution was just as important! And we all worked together! It doesn't matter who did what, because each of us has something we could point to and say we did.

//Exactly the same thing......

Funny - I thought Bell Labs were credited with the creation of the T1
http://whatist1.com/why-t1-was-invented.html

Bell Labs designed "carrier systems" - technology that would aggregate (merge together) multiple voice channels on one trunk line without degrading quality of signal. Being logical they labeled their first carrier system "A" and by 1917 the first cable that ran four channels over an open wire pair was in use.

Fast forward to 1957 by which point Bell Labs had gone through so many "carrier systems" they were up to the letter "T" in the alphabet. (The previous carrier system was in fact "N" but they skipped the letters O, P, Q, R and S to jump straight to "T" because, as we shall see, it was also the first letter of a new digital signal technology based on "Time Division".)

I think submitter may have been triz-olled. The website seems a little too far out there to be for real. On the off chance that it is for real the author has about as much credibility as a random hobo screaming on the street corner.

He gives it away with the "In Sync" line, and the Buddy Christ in the sidebar.
Even a grade-schooler could see past such obvious trolling.
Greenlighting this link was just giving them the attention they're after.
Any second now, they'll post another article saying how Fark is evil.
Mark my words. You're getting trolled hard.
Eventually I hope people stop falling for crap like this.


Well, the "bad poetry" should have been a dead giveaway.

styckx: What the fark am I looking at? Intrigued with the pic of the pedo looking fella up in the corner I ventured into their members list.



Kyle started out hating Christians. He listened to anti-Christian music, played violent video games, and created a website attacking various Christian organizations while praising the work of . Kyle was a troubled boy. However, this all changed when he found Jesus. Since then he has gotten himself cleaned up, has started listening to Christian rock, and is now a respectable looking young lad. His parents - being Jewish - were hesitant to accept his new found faith, but they do consider it better that Kyle is now following Jesus instead of Marilyn Manson. Kyle has recently graduated from Fellowship Christian High School and is now attending Fellowship University. When not studying, he helps maintain our web site.

How convenient all his former issues revolved around violent video games, Marilyn Manson and an Atheist.
