Subby, four years is a long time to hold a grudge for a redlight. Let it go, man, let it go.

I was naked, in the mezzanine of the Trump Casino Atlantic City, the Donald was screaming at me to come back and talk to him before I did something we both regret. I picked up my leather boy scout uniform from the floor and walked out the door. We've never spoken since.

Do I have regrets? Of course, who wouldn't. I think what hurts the most is the way The Donald has taken to politics so alien from the warm, loving, tender man I knew.

Fark you Subby, for making me remember this!

I remember.. I remember it like it was yesterday..

I was living the high life, submitting questionnaires into what I should do as I had just discovered during a bachelor party the groom engaging in coitus with a goat on TFD, via Anon-DIT because that's what everybody who had a SERIOUS PROBLEM did back then. I remember those were simpler times.. when cat pictures were actually funny.. when the owls were still only just becoming completely obnoxious..

Shortly after crafting my latest Anon-DIT, a foray into the inner workings of humanity via a "SERIOUS DEBATE" on if two midget Spartans or a Viking would win in a fight.. the site started to crash. "No", I told myself. I shook the blasphemous thought from my head as if it were stagnant water in my ear beginning to itch. "I was almost done!". Little did I know the chaos that was to ensue.

In the following two hour period a slew of new features were being enacted. "Web 2.0" was the reason the Admins gave us. "It's more stream-lined! User friendly! Tabs! Buttons! Colors! Stop living in the past!" they cried from atop their mountain. Of course this is what they would tell us. It wouldn't have any impact on their lives.. just business as usual for the "Gods on Olympus". They continued to shake the web design apart.. pixelquakes shattered the sidebar and cracked the logo. A hailstorm of features came crashing upon our unwanting heads, no matter what shelter we took it was inevitable. A few users even foolishly tried to replicate the supposed "out dated", but still WANTED stylization. I remember.

After the few hours or so that they shook OUR Earth they lived not upon, we were simply told that we'll "Get Over It". Thousands of butthurt netizens shook their tiny fists at their keyboard, claiming that they'll QUIT FARK FOREVER, if only for the HORRIBLE way Jeff treated them. Even our noble-persons were at a loss. Even they, who held their heads high through site designs before, and stared gloriously into certain death, could offer no solace That was the day Argh_Dammit left our ranks. His spirit broken, we wandered slowly away, presumably to die alone and at peace as ancient beasts often do.

Once the dust cleared, we saw a few familiar faces. Log_Jammin was always somebody I recognized. I always looked up to him from afar, though he would never recognize me. You see, I was never part of that elite rank, though I often fantasized about being welcome at the Table of Feasts in the Great Hall. When BXRWXR pulled him from the rubble and suggested he "Eat a Bowl of Dicks", I knew we would be okay. We would SURVIVE this thing. I haven't seen BXRWXR since, but the wrinkles in the face of Log_Jammin I think could tell the story, if we only looked close enough.

If only...

BigLuca: CapeFearCadaver: 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.

I read that twice. I ... don't get it.


My takeaway is that it's a little unsettling when a Cadaver flinches.

Telephone Sanitizer Second Class: I remember that day. I couldn't see Logan Airport because my balls were stuck in a chair and my homeschooled girlfriend wasn't there to help me. Luckily, I got over it, and got to the gym 26 minutes later, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

I forgot that we used to have threads for new Homestarrunner cartoons. And that most Farkers posted in the thread to say that they hate Homestarrunner and don't think it's funny. Sort of a predecessor to the football discussions today.

I have not forgotten the Boobies threads, however. RIP BOOBIES

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.

Me neither. We must lack the resolution, the dedication and the iron will that drives Fark admins relentlessly.
