Persnickety: "I'll take The Farking Internet for $800, Alex"
"This is the only thing worse than a slideshow - yes, OldTimeFarker"
"What is a Fark TV"
"No, I'm sorry - yes NewFarker"
"What is a sponsored link?"
"No, that is also incorrect - yes, Persnickety"
"Umm, What is a pay site?"
"That's correct!"


Fark TV.  Forgot about that.

FrancoFile: MisatoNERV: Whatever happened to SbB? I remember when I first came here I thought it was part of FARK.

It's still there.  Different site design.  The last blog post on 'sports' was June of last year.  No half-naked babes on the main page.  Brooks must be sick or something.


For awhile, he seemed determined to out do Deadspin when it came to hating ESPN, so it must have crushed him to hear Colin Cowherd is a fan....


That said, some of the eye candy he had on that site was awe inspiring. Milani is probably the best (only) known but there was a goddess that shifted from redhead to dirty blonde that put her to shame....

Like that Snorg Tees redhead...nice.

"As more information about his case becomes available ... it becomes more and more obvious that Paul was the innocent, although very gullible, victim of a scam,"

Boy it's a good thing this moron was only convicted of drug trafficking and not something dangerous like being a conservative. Otherwise his peers would not have rallied around him.

Oh, and texting that your worried "about the sniffer dogs" and looking out for a "special little suitcase" does not equal innocence.

i don't think he was being stupid.  he was just taking a very big risk for the chance of a very big reward.  there were two possibilities:  1) the suitcase was full of cocaine and he was going to go to jail, or 2) he was going to get to have sex with denise milani.  sure, it was a 90% chance that he was getting scammed, but a 10% chance of having sex with denise milani might have been worth the risk.

he should have demanded proof that it was actually her, though.  mail her a present and then ask for a picture of her holding the present, something like that.  he was stupid to just believe it was her based only on internet chats.

Dude, there's no such institution.  He's at the University of North Carolina.

Reminds me of when I saw the Stones at NC State in the 90s. Midway through Mick attempts to connect with the audience. Sadly, he is unaware of the deep, religious divides in the community. "So, how about the Wolf Pack?!" A brief cheer is drowned out by an ocean of boos. "Yeah, alright. Forget I asked."

They just don't understand.

That reminded me of when I was at a Slayer show and the fans were throwing M-80s into the crowd, tearing the place up.  Kerry King says, "You know, this is why we hate playing in New York, you're all crazy."  Wild cheers from the audience.  "I mean you're sick."  Louder cheers. "No, you don't understand, you're insane."  Whole place goes crazy.  Then they played just one or two more songs and left.

They did understand.  Was still funny.

I don't know whether to pity him or hate him. He obviously knew about the coke, but he really believed there was a boob model somewhere in the picture. What a toxic ego that guy has.

theflatline: Happens all the time in Colombia as well, they either try to get them to become mules, or just suck em dry....

I had a 65 year old guy from the states contact me because he was told since I was half gringo I could help out around town...  So I tell him to meet me after work.

This dusty old guy shows up with a 25 year whore with a pair of bolt-ons and what appeared to be a black version of wonder woman's costume.

Seems he had met this fair young(busted) Colombiana on the internet and in a weeks time they had fallen in love.  He had transferred half a million into the country and wanted to buy some property and a few cars etc.

He told me they were going to put it in her name until they got married and then it could become community property.

I informed him that if you bring 200k plus into the country you can get an investors visa and I referred him to an immigration attorney.  He said no that would be an insult to her and he would do it his way. Guy spoke three words of spanish.

A month later he calls me and turns out he has bought a house, two cars, and a nail salon, all in her name, and before the ink could dry on the contracts, she has called the police and got a restraining order on him for domestic abuse.

I drag him over to the lawyers office and he explains the story and the dunb fark pulls 10k US out of his pocket and says "get my stuff back and it is yours."    I berate him because well 10k is 10k, and I would not even carry that amount of large in my pockets here, much so in Colombia.  A place where min wage is 250 USD a month.  We all could have been killed.

The lawyer tells him his best bet is to walk away with the loss, because such a large amount of money is involved that if he tried the first they would do would kill his attorney.

So a few weeks later I am in my local with my wife and here he comes in and tells me his going to call it a loss, and could I perhaps suggest on how to meet a nice Colombian woman.

I tell him to slow his roll, learn a ...

Because she's never done any nudes as far as I know, and yes I have looked extensively.

Seth'n'Spectrum: I was under the impression that in many countries you don't have to prove the smuggler was aware of what they are smuggling in order to get a conviction. Or is that just the D.A.R.E. propaganda from my youth muddling things again?


Pretty much. Since it's often unpossible to actually prove that the person with drugs in their effects actually knew they were there and not planted.  So the courts just ignore that. You have things like a Mexican grandmother drives across the boarder every day. So the smugglers, tape a kg of cocaine on top of her gas tank.  She drives it across the boarder, and then their guys on the other side, snag it  This happens a couple of times before the customs people find the package and she goes to jail.

Not to mention a lot of drug mules are smuggling under duress.  The gangs threaten to kill them and their families and sometimes hold other family members hostage. Their forced to smuggle drugs until they get caught.  It's kind of like piracy.  Young men would be captured by pirates and given a choice, join the pirates and have to turn your back on your family and country forever more and be condemned to death if caught, or die right now.

\Knows a Mexican who smuggled.
\\Smuggled a used smog machine into Mexico.

Simple rule of thumb: quid pro quo.

Your online pal wants you to do anything or go anywhere? They come to you FIRST. Ta-da. Now you know it's at least a real person.

That was a better CSB than the article itself.

Expected value. Great for slot machines and craps, not so great for a once-in-a-lifetime risks. It'd be hilarious to see the bad shoops he would have believed if he had tried that, though.
