ShannonKW:


God, I'd love to see links to Daily Mail banned from Fark.... Please, for the love decency and good taste, just stop it. If it's a genuine news item, some other news site will carry it that is not staffed by sleazy cockneys who would best serve society by being rendered for kibble and shipped to hog farms.


This. Indeed.

ya, the daily mail is really the cutting edge of journalism.

God, I'd love to see links to Daily Mail banned from Fark. Right, Left, or centrist, I'm sure we'd all agree that we don't need to help scum like this make money. Yes, the average farker is probably intelligent enough not to take seriously anything published by a site with celebrity tits in the sidebar, but when you visit them you are giving them page hits and contributing to the problem just as much an ignorant, fat, Englishwoman who really cares about the scandalous dress KateLo wore to the celebrity bash last weekend. And of course by luring innocent fellow farkers to... that site... you are multiplying the offense.

Please, for the love decency and good taste, just stop it. If it's a genuine news item, some other news site will carry it that is not staffed by sleazy cockneys who would best serve society by being rendered for kibble and shipped to hog farms.


You are a terrible parent.

I prefer Nyquil for sleep.

Not so CSB- In Afghanistan I got so used to using Nyquil to sleep I used half a bottle once on one of my days off. I actually slept through a rocket attack. When the 1SG came around for the safety check I was still out cold when he banged on my door and apparently thought I was dead. They actually busted down my door to see if I was alive. Yeah I got counseled for that. And had a broken door for a few days, so my laptop and xbox spent the time in a buddy's CHU.

Trouble is, they help Drew make money. Or did you think that kickbacks advertizing wasn't a significant part of this site's income?

Drinking doesn't make my husband and I better parents, but it certainly makes us happier people. We tend to share a bottle of wine before/after the baby is asleep. Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Seriously, it shows up with enough frequency that I wonder if there is some sort of X-links-per-week-for-$Y going on, as there apparently was once with Strongbad. I don't know why Strongbad suddenly dropped off the radar here, but I suspect their unpopularity had something to do with it. People got tired of semi-funny Flash animations shoved in their faces, it became obvious that someone was getting paid to greenlight the shiat, and toward the end every SB thread was full of heckling, and SB finally decided it was more harm than good and took his business elsewhere to everyone's relief.

Here's hoping the same thing can be accomplished with Daily Mail. They never even gave us a Trogdor.

taurusowner: I prefer Nyquil for sleep.


Don't forget that Nyquil has acetaminophen (tylenol) in it, and that an overdose of tylenol will destroy your liver, so if you drink too much you may need a liver transplant, or you might die.

Google it if you don't believe me

AverageAmericanGuy: I went camping with my son, wife, and a couple other families this weekend and one of the fathers from another family was sharing some wine with his 6 month-old son. I couldn't believe my eyes. I thought that kind of shiat only happens in Fark stories.

I threw my beer at his feet and stood up and yelled at him to stop abusing his child. In his surprise, he let the baby slip and it fell on the concrete floor and skinned its elbow and shoulder. Meanwhile, all the other kids are crying and freaking out.

Some people are terrible parents.


The fact that you were "camping" and it somehow involved a concrete floor is far more disappointing.

Can anyone else count 7 things that are seriously farked up about this paragraph ?

xl5150: I have a daughter on the way. I don't plan to quit drinking once she's here. Not like I drink to excess or anything though.


How do you expect to keep her school free of unwanted bikini models if you're drinking all the time?

Oh, I get it, your plan is to go to nudie bars to check to see if you recognize any of the girls from parent-teacher night. Devious.

Mithiwithi: How do you expect to keep her school free of unwanted bikini models if you're drinking all the time?

I expect the school to properly research all of their employees to make sure that none of them have anything inappropriate in their background. I don't find this to be an unreasonable request.

I go to strip clubs all the time. Nothing wrong with that. I wouldn't want the girls there to be someone who deals with my daughter, though. Again, that's hardly unreasonable.

I'm curious--did you learn how to diagnose people over the internet in your community college Pysch 101A class, or did you have to wait until the second semester to reach that level of expertise?

I'm going to be 30 in three years and I am seriously contemplating not having a kid. I don't think I'd mind being a step mother but I don't know. Kids seem like so much work and stress. In my ignorance as a teen I wanted six children. I was an idiot.

What would be inappropriate in your view?

Does your wife know?

"Deals with" in what way? Are you talking cafeteria ladies or what?

Why do you assume all strippers would be inappropriate to be around your child? Are you aware that many women strip to feed their kids who their scumbag fathers don't support?

When you're at the club do you tip well? Maybe buy a lap dance even though you don't really need one?
 
2012-10-08 11:46:49 AM
Simple test: kids pissing you off? Have a beer or glass of wine. If you're no longer pissed, the kids were fine. You were just too damned uptight. If you're still pissed, it was the kids. Might want to tell them them to shut the hell up and fix yourself another libation.

You could field your own basketball team. That's pretty cool.

Hell, one day when I was watching my first son at about six months old I blew him a hit so he'd settle down and I could get some gaming time in. He's fine now, just won't stop moving and I don't dare try that at four years.
