BigLuca: Hell, I've been here almost 9 years and have never even SEEN totalfark.


Meh, have you at least seen a real, live boob? Not side-boob...that doesn't count. Because titties are all that matter in life, and Total Fark ranks waaaaaaaaaaay below them.

If this was the site redesign, then yeah that was a memorable day. When it happened, everyone was complaining about going blind because the site had gone to a bright white.

Oh, I was reading fark threads in 2005 and I vaguely remember this.  I just didn't get around to creating an account until later and that was because I wanted to be able to post comments.

I've been Farking for a goddamn decade and I haven't been offered a modmin position. Oh, the humanity...

I come to fark to waste time and be entertained.

This thread did exactly one of those, and I want my 2 minutes back.
 
2012-12-08 04:39:00 PM  
I was still a lurker back then. But I have zero idea what this is referring to. Maybe I'm drunk? I don't think so...but maybe my drink got spiked while I wasn't looking or something.

I don't even know what's going on, man.
 
2012-12-08 04:42:24 PM  
I was on fark, wondering what the deal was.

But i was also wondering how the hell i was going to get home, as the oil depot fire which is a newsflash halfway down that list of headlines was a mile from where i was then living. The explosion destroyed offices within half a mile of it and my flatmate (who was at home) said he thought a car had crashed through the window, it was so loud. I was away visiting my parents, and the police closed off all access to Hemel Hempstead just as I was getting ready to head home. It was massively inconvenient.

I had an account for 6 months by then and beleive this was about the time I got put in time out for posting a "Ha-Ha" guy Charged with threadjacking. I was welcomed back to the flock just in time for the thread to beat all threads, Jeff relented and told everyone to freely post Ha-Ha guy to "get it out of your system" epic man, just epic.......................

Shostie: About this time in 2005 I was still picking up the pieces of my life after Hurricane Katrina.


I was lurking at this time, and I saw all the Katrina threads. Man, some Farkers were just plain vicious and unfeeling. Chiefly irritating was the ignorantMonday-morning-quarterbacking of the whole situation as though they knew anything about it aside from looting videos on CNN. So it turned me off of Fark for a while. Think I came back sometime in '07 and finally signed up some time late that year, because every other large comment-driven site is sort of like a bunch of retards on a field trip.

To any lurkers reading: I highly recommend lurking for a good while before posting to Fark. This place has it's own insular jokes, sense of humor, etc. If you don't "get it," you'll be eaten alive.

Im guessing its a TF thing that liters will never understand, that or I am on so much hydrocodone cough syrup I just dont get it.

Having the flu has one perk, but the chills, aches, sweats, dizziness, etc..... makes it really suck

At that time, I was one of the morans posting on the myspace forums. There was a guy there who kept posting this hilarious pictures of owls, and the rest of us kept asking him where the hell he got them from.

He was the one to introduced me to fark (so blame him). About a year later, I decided to start lurking. Finally got a username in 2007, and I haven't left.

/Wow, was I an idiot back then.

THIS.

Not only that, it was my sister's 11th birthday, and my mom was a huge Beatles fan, and John was her favorite.

Thanks a lot, Mark David Chapman, you asshole.

Sim Tree: I'm guessing that was the day Drew changed over the site to the newer, current format. People royally freaked out over it, posting 'I fear change' and similar sillyness, some in jest and some... not. Someone went as far as to (more like? No, wait) went as far as to write a stylesheet you could download that reverted fark to the older format.


Different day:

December 8th, 2005, I was home immobile after some bone grafting surgery to one of my legs and my dog's skin disease (50% skin itchiness, 50% nerves) was in full blown effect; so my ex at the time had to take him to the vet while I tried to decorate the christmas tree sitting down. P brought the dog back home and poor baby was shaved across his back half and the skin was so horribly infected he had this suran wrap type stuff on it he looked like zombie dog. It was pitiful :(

A year ago today, I was hanging out with a former marine, 6'6" 225, awesome guy, watching a movie and drinking beers at my place. He came up behind me to hug me when all the sudden his whole body fell in a deep sigh. I asked him what was wrong. His response: "You. just. flinched.", in a pain-filled low voice. I didn't even realize I had flinched, it had become completely involuntary. A month previous a different ex had been convicted of placing me in the hospital. Former marine and I didn't last. Makes me sad, still. I really liked him.
