Interesting you should bring up history. The copyright has nothing to do with programmers comments. One day, long ago, slashies were disabled on Fark, they are of course, back. In that brief time I needed something to comfort me, which I found with the copyright sign. Its very easy to type, and it stuck. So, to put aside all your witty comments, if you had any idea of the history of that brief period, you'd find that it is really just a meaningless symbol that I type to symbolize the end of that particular comment.

Or, you are just being a snotty douche, and in that case, (insert bronx cheer), happy Halloween!

I won't meet any of those people on Halloween. That's because I do not belong in any of the following categories.

2) A college student
3) Someone older than that who still thinks that they're either under 11 or a college student

If you think I'm old and cranky, that's OK. I wonder how you would react if your parents suddenly started wearing costumes on "Tooth Fairy Night." Especially if your mom was "Sexy Halitosis."

Rat:
Interesting you should bring up history. The copyright has nothing to do with programmers comments. One day, long ago, slashies were disabled on Fark, they are of course, back. In that brief time I needed something to comfort me, which I found with the copyright sign. Its very easy to type, and it stuck. So, to put aside all your witty comments, if you had any idea of the history of that brief period, you'd find that it is really just a meaningless symbol that I type to symbolize the end of that particular comment.

Or, you are just being a snotty douche, and in that case, (insert bronx cheer), happy Halloween!


How long ago was that? I don't remember.

I'm always kind of a snotty douche, but one thing that really grinds my gears is when people see something in use and they only notice the aesthetic of it, and not the reason behind it.

Want a good example? Fixed-gear bikes. Now they're trendy because I-don't-know-why but it used to be that it was considered good practice to ride the first thousand or two miles of a year on a fixed gear bike because it enforces good form at varying cadences. Most people who ride "fixies" don't ride a thousand miles in a decade, let alone 20k+ in a year.

p51d007: Halloween is for CHILDREN!
When adults get all dressed up, it's just an excuse to get drunk and act like idiots.


I bet you're a blast at parties.

I was late getting my costume last year. All they had left was a ballerina outfit and a bishop's Miter and Crozier

I went as Archbishop Desmond Tutu..

LeroyBourne: I wanna dress up like Bennet from Commando. But I fear no one will know who he is, especially when I start spouting off lines. Your soldiers make me laugh, if Matrix were here he'd laugh too. My soldiers are patriots. Your soldiers are NOTHING, Matrix and I could kill em all in a blink of an eye.


Let off some steam, Bennett

Here's something a little more NSFW

That story made me lose faith in humanity


Likewise. A tattoo, THERE? How awful.

The "limecat" haircut is interesting, though. Frames her eyes nicely.

(eyes are hotter than a huge rack. as a bonus they don't sag or cause massive back problems!)

Mister Peejay: Slashes are used in code as a demarc for programmer comments.

It really wouldn't make sense for me to use them without the context -- a comment that is separated from the rest of the content.

A couple of years ago, I was trolling the Goodwill for costume components with a friend, and found blue sweatpants and yellow flip flops. I added a white, sleeveless men's undershirt (commonly known as a "wifebeater") and a faux gold medallion on a chain. I spoke in a gruff voice all night and made ignorant comments about how horny I was and how I knew all the ladies wanted me, occasionally berating an invisible giant talking milkshake and carton of french fries.

/Sexy Carl didn't quite have the right ring to it.

I was at a Halloween party back in 2001 and two of the guys there were each dressed up as one of the twin towers. Throughout the night they would fall over onto each other in unison. Many laughs were had.

LesserEvil: The actual #9 from "The Frisky":

9. The person who got drunk and took off all the identifying parts of their costume. Now they're just wearing a brown leotard and novelty teeth and muttering about how much they love everyone. Very unsettling.

ABC News fails on so many counts....

Simon and Garfunkel - the early years.
 
2012-10-22 04:22:56 AM
Hm. What if you just wore a white t-shirt with a QR code on it so people had to scan it to see your costume? Or even better, that would link to a site with hundreds of different images, so every person who scanned you would see something different?

The method actor is usually the most fun. How can you not get into character? What would be lame is if somebody is dressed as Hulk Hogan, and doesn't impersonate him. Worse yet, never once uses the word "brother". I expect to hear that guy become hulkamania.

whidbey: Dr. Whoof: From Addam's Family?

After the mid-80s I became cinematically deficient. Are they worth watching?


Sure they are, but there are probably bigger gems you've missed.

General rule of thumb: If something was shoved down your throat via commercials and other advertisements as a giant Hollywood blockbuster, it's not necessarily any good, but it might be. Don't go by this.

But if a movie is beloved by millions, chances are you're going to like it too. Everyone likes to think they are a special snowflake sometimes, but when it comes to something like Lord of the Rings or The Dark Knight the bottom line is everyone else liked it so you're probably going to like it too, so just freakin watch it already :)

8 Jewels of Snark from a Stocky Harpy Named Winona? Is The Frisky staffed by off-duty Jezebel writers trying to make a funny? Did anyone follow the links and see the "Seven Female Serial Killers Who Were Totally Justified" article followed by the "Male Convicts Who are Totally HAWWT" article? Nothing incongruous there.

I watched that movie not too long ago, and I remember thinking, "Bennet looks like he belongs in a leather bar spanking some guy's ass with a riding crop instead of trying to kill Arnold." Still, I would totally recognize the costume if I saw it at a party, and I would think it was awesome. Although, it is a bit close to the terminator costume from the first movie.
