Britney Spear's Speculum: Saw this on Reddit like 3 days ago


jakewastaken: I see we're recycling 3 day old shiat from reddit's frontpage now.


I hate these kinds of posts. These simply demonstrate the poster doesn't understand social media. It's not some kind of pissing contest. If you saw it on Reddit, that's fine. I don't like Reddit, so I saw it here first.

Please stop pooping here.

DaintySavage: I saw this in brazil like 11 days ago. Are we just rehashing stuff we see on other news sites? I thought Fark was better than that.


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.

Hi, I'm Tom!. I read this on FARK just a few minutes ago. WTF? But maybe that head injury I suffered has affected my short term memory.

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


Really? Because I could care less.

jakewastaken: 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.


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.

It's not a race. Stuff gets posted. reedit, fark, slashdot, gawker, huffington, boing boing, wherever. Just go with the flow.

jakewastaken: I guess I should only visit one social media site in order to understand how the internet works. Thanks for the insight.


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.

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.

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.

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.
