Holocaust Agnostic: JasonOfOrillia: muck4doo: Ban matches and lighters and this crap wouldn't even be necessary. You do not have a constitutional right to fire.

Fire is just a tool that has plenty of legitimate uses. Everyone should be armed with fire to protect their rights against an increasingly authoritarian government.

BronyMedic: DoBeDoBeDo: 100 burn victims A DAY????

WTF?

Not everyone who goes to a burn center does so because they have massive third and fourth degree burns. Many go there for minor BSA but high grade burns (like someone who gets a second degree burn on their forearm, or third degree burn the size of a quarter on their chest), burns on their hands or on a joint, or for wound care. Many burn centers will also do diabetics and people with wounds and ulcers that won't heal - especially if they need hyperbaric therapy.


Also, a burn on the hand or face is pretty much automatically a 3d degree if it's a child, which is who they're talking about here. And since they were talking about "flammable alcohol" I'm going to make a wild guess here and speculate that the main cause of injury is either a) spirit stoves that the poor use for cooking up in the favelas, or b) drunk idiots tripping over their kids on the way home from the bar and dropping their cigars on them.

Brazil is a nasty place.

Is this something you are just noticing? Whenever I see something worthwhile on Reddit, I mentally note the time and date, so I can see how long until it makes Fark.

Way to miss the point. Since everyone is different, and since everyone has different tastes, saying 'reddit did it first' is as inane and useless a comment as one Newspaper reader saying 'The Times ALSO has this as a headline? Pshaw. Read it in the Globe 20 minutes earlier'. Social media sites will carry the sames kinds of stories. Your posts imply you think it should not have been posted here because it was on reddit 3 days ago. Or you are saying Fark should have also posted it three days ago. This is why I feel you perhaps do not understand social media. If you did, you never would have made the comment as it would have known exactly how silly it would sound! It has no point other than to take up space in the comments. There is no message, it is not meaningful.

Anyways, we've gotten way off topic here. It seems ever clearer with each passing year that Brazil is a worldwide threat and we cannot afford not to take them seriously.

Because you've added so much more to the conversation, right? My point was indeed that Fark should post shiat first because I like it better. I get disappointed when it's the other way around. I don't think any of this has any bearing on my understanding of social media. I think you missed the point far more than I did.

Then your initial post could have clearly been written more clearly. I hope you can see that.

And if I missed the point, fair enough, that's why I said 'way to miss the point', I wasn't saying you missed it. Sorry if it wasn't clear.

*big grins*

You'll notice I did add to the conversation, I realised I was off topic and brought up the imminent threat that was Brazil.

I love when years old memes from 4chan are suddenly "new content" on Fark.

That's exactly what I'm saying. Most other aggregator sites are already reposting stuff that has been around forever. If we're just going to poach off of reddit we're ludicrously behind the ball.


We don't all hang out there. Just sayin.

Does a fark post ever make it to reedit? And if it does do you diss them for it? I don't know because I haven't been there in ages.

Really, people? 4 comments out of 90 are saying that this was somewhere else on the internet before it was here?

Are you people aware of how the site works? It takes things from the internet and links to them.

Its a news aggregator site. If other sites get to something first, Fark is supposed to ignore it? If they did, I would never have seen this and, frankly, I laughed my butt off at this.

See, I dont go to reddit, or Brazilaggragate or wherever you saw it, I come here. Probably like most people.

We are proud of the fact you all like to hang out at reddit so you can feel supperior to the (clearly - cause I am here) inferior caliber of people who read that site. But you are here now, where the cool kids hang out. We dont need you to tell us that you saw it on reddit. We simply dont care.

The difference is that Fark has moderators who choose what links get approved. This story could very well have been posted the same day as the Reddit thread, but for whatever reason it didn't get approved. Then, the same story was submitted again three days later and a different moderator saw it and approved it.

See, my post was making fun of everyone crying about something being somewhere else.

I figured it was laid on thick enough that anyone would get it, but once again Fark proves me wrong

Even sadder still is that you've only just noticed the existence of one of the earliest popular websites, dating back to the same year Internet Explorer launched:

This is the first I've ever heard that fourth degree burns even exist. I checked it out on Wikipedia, and now I wish I hadn't.
