JerseyTim: Actual Farking: Only after a frank discussion about white rights and the legalized racism that is affirmative action. Without that impediment, I would be so successful, you guys. Also, maybe some jailbait and a celebration of domestic violence. It's in the 1st Amendment.

Ahh, yes, this will allow me to use my "if white male privilege exists, then why do I live in my parents' basement" argument.

If it's your community, it's local.

Fark and Reddit in the same place? Isn't that like dividing by zero?

Apathy + Stupidity = The internet equivalent of Honey Boo Boo

I think I will pass on that, thanks.

Sounds like serious business, this 'The Internet' thing.

What's a reddit?

You won't catch this kind of action on Fark. Something for everyone.

I went to a reddit meetup in NYC and maybe 2 guys weren't total pieces of shiat. It was like the awkward kids from middle school got ten years older and hadn't changed at all.

Look for a guy wearing a banana hammock.


I never said I would be there.

You had to do it tomorrow night when I can't be there. Boo. It's only an hour away or so.

Yeesh, i gotta say, the average farker is better looking than that.


cman: Anyone remember when Something Awful was our rival? When did these farks become our rival?

When Aspergers became a thing.

Heh! I'm old, not dead.

The site is basically fan written erotica divided into different categories.

i upped my meds-up yours: Not to distract from the meta-fest, but local communities have no future unless they are based on politics, religion, or the having of crotchfruit. The enlightened folk, at least those without millions, will be stuck in crowded enclaves, with cockroaches and constant car break-ins.


As someone who works in local communities (and is still wondering WTF this 'discussion' is gonna be) I'd like to add that they have a future beyond that. Simply put those that will be awesome just simply give a damn about their fellow man. My neighborhood is low(ish) on the crotchfruit, but when our cat went MIA (hiding in the damn basement apparently for 3+ days) and I sent the word out to a neighbor, I met the rest of my ~ mile long street just from folks I had never met coming up and asking about if I had found the damn cat yet + letting me know they had an eye out for it. Pretty awesome on the simplest of levels, esp since we had been there for 3 months at that point, in a neighborhood where the average reign is probably 10+ years at least.

If the Redditors are anything like the ones we saw in that Baltimore/Storage locker meetup picture NSFW, Farkers will actually be the most attractive people in the room for once.

This will end in disaster. All things end in disaster. Disaster

The site is basically fan written erotica divided into different categories.

my guesses on cateegories are
1: BDSM written better then 50 shades of Grey
2: BDSM written worse then 50 shades of Grey
2: Homosexual Erotica
4: Heterosexual Erotica

I hope someone prints out a picture from reddits last get together at the storage facility and tries to get all their autographs...

Same with the one in the pink shirt to the right of the picture. The rest of them are what you would expect from the internet.

At least there is that tiny bit of eye-bleach amongst all the other eye-blehch-ptht-ptht-hack-patooie.

I could see as she sat alone at the bar that she was looking over her list of red lights and reassuring herself, "I bet if I paid $5 a month the admins would actually green my submissions". I ordered a drink for myself and another round for her and took a seat next to her, opened my ipad to opera and showed her my handle.

"You're a farker too?" she said as she took the drink from the bartender and clinked it against mine in a show of thanks. She asked me if I had ever signed up for totalfark to which I replied, "signing up for TF is like joining a fraternity in college and I'm too cool to 'pay for my friends'" and we laughed a hearty laugh....

The local Reddit community doesn't seem so bad, or at least the ones I know about are OK.  :)

alienated: We should have a Fark / SomethingAwful/Reddit Tricon of nerds and geeks and wierdos. Vegas.


I haven't seen anything good about that site since moot chewed his way out through its feces laden flesh a decade ago.

/ to be fair, moot was the one that chewed his way in and crapped everywhere to start with
// it would still be far more intertaining
 
2012-10-10 11:42:33 AM  
Now that I deleted my Reddit account (I was really close to people finding my real ID), I can concentrate on Fark again.

Geesh. Create a few subreddits and Anderson Cooper goes all white knight on me.
