What the hell is this rivalry crap anyway?
 
2012-10-03 08:49:38 PM
25 people at a store and lock parkinglot and the only way I can tell the girls from the boys is the boys have bigger boobs? I think I am busy that month.

That's why I skipped the next-to-last Toronto party.  I rectified that problem. :)

Good for them. If we don't get out there and support The Internet, it will never make it.


I'm sorry, but I'm opposed to this "Internet". It's bulky and it makes me feel fat. It's bad for the children, and I'll never understand the concept of a "Drew Curtis".

Fark never seems to be the biggest of these sites but dag nabbit do we keep on going.

Great job being relevant, Fark!

I don't think reddit users are old enough to drink.

The 90's concept of the internet was so much better.

i50.tinypic.com

Look at them, they're surfing the information superhighway and the kid in front is wearing his green hat in a way unacceptable to polite society. His shoes use velcro instead of laces because he doesn't subscribe to cultural norms.
They might even have blinking red lights on the back when he walks.
But he knows the importance of companionship; one can't traverse the unknown alone.

Generic Blonde Girl is there with pink and purple clothing because she's a female.
Prudie over there in the baby blue shirt and fitting jeans is voice of reason of the group. He will steer them away from trouble, with mixed results.

But this is the 90's, being a revolutionary doesn't mean you can't hang out with people of color.
You have the black kid to the right, and what could possibly be an Asian or Hispanic on the left.
In fact, it was the black kid's suggestion for him to wear his head in such a rebellious manner.

These kids may not look like much, but they're the future of this world wide web. We would do well to invest in Scholastic Books' vision of the future.

Oh man, I realized I was in the wrong thread before. :( Oops. Sorry people in other thread.

If the "innernets" were a prison, and web sites were prisoners, FARK and Reddit would be among the prison biatches.
 
2012-10-03 09:17:53 PM
So is this an orgy?

Hey what do you know, I just signed up for reddit recently, now if it would come near me just so i could snub it

Kittypie070: I AM dirty Reddit scum, you motherfarkers!!

Wait until they find out that the 10th is Wednesday. :-\

a joint Fark/Reddit drinking party and discussion self-fellating session


FTFY

/Fark Reddit, it sucks. It is the one place on the internet that makes the people here at Fark look fairly well adjusted.
 
2012-10-03 10:15:33 PM
So there'll be buttchugging then?

When fark gets a gonewild tab, I'm going off the grid.

thismomentinblackhistory: When fark gets a gonewild tab, I'm going off the grid.


They'll just add a white supremacy tab and a wife beating tab for the sake of fee speech. It's in the constitution after all.

People have to pay thousands of dollars to buy a computer just so they can send messages with this interthingy?

The post office has nothing to worry about.
 
2012-10-03 11:45:27 PM
Um, no thanks. Reddit is populated mainly by angst ridden, pimple faced, tweenagers who blame Christianity for everything. You know the ones I'm talking about- not young enough to be sweet and innocent, not old enough to be worth a damn.


Reddit is the akward puberty years of the collective internet. What they would do in a bar is anyone's guess, but I think everyone would agree the outcome wouldn't be good. I imagine the maturity of the typical internet user goes something like this: /B/->Reddit->Livejournal->Fark
 
2012-10-03 11:53:26 PM
Never cross the streams
 
2012-10-04 12:17:14 AM
You don't drink a joint, you ninnies!
 
2012-10-04 12:31:56 AM
Rip them a new one, Drew.
 
2012-10-04 12:51:22 AM
Its not Reddit as a whole that sucks, its the stuff you see on the default frontpage where its nothing but LOLCAT MEME KARMA ATHIEST UPVOTE DAE AMA NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON SCIENCE that sucks. Dig a little deeper, and many of the subreddits are pretty interesting and informative. Saying that, I still come to fark every day as well...

Mike: What the hell is this rivalry crap anyway?


IDK. Both websites are different. one has all kinds of things and is easy to navigate, and the other one is ,well, yes to the first, but no to the second.
Since I am posting this on Fark.com, i think you can guess how i feel.
I am sure there might be some nice folks there, and good for them.
We should have a Fark / SomethingAwful/Reddit Tricon of nerds and geeks and wierdos. Vegas.
Spring Break .

meh they got nothing on Farkers. Living in storage buildings is no better than living in your Moms basement. That probably just means your Mom doesn't love you anymore and kicked you out.

Exactly! People need to make accounts so they can unsubscribe from most of the default subreddits. The local subreddits are quite useful.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to return to /r/StopPoopingYourPants/

The fun thing about the Internet is it's not like radio where you pretty much stick to one channel.  You can actually have multiple favorite websites :)
 
2012-10-09 09:01:31 PM
Internet group hug! or something.

I'm all over it! Just waiting now. Hopefully they're right and it's something like 2 weeks. :)

How many dead are expected from the Going Postal Party?
 
2012-10-09 09:04:52 PM
Just so you know I'm expecting you guys to solve all of the world's problems at this gathering. No pressure.

I'd love to go, but I'm on my own bus tour promoting Fidonet.

Aye carumba. This could be interesting. From a distance.
 
2012-10-09 09:07:37 PM
This is the cross dimensional rip Eegon warned us about when you cross the streams. I'm headed into the hills until the danger is over.
 
2012-10-09 09:07:38 PM
I went to go find that map of internet communities because I'm pretty sure there's like 10 reddit people to every farker (if not more) and wound up with this:



What the hell is live.com?
