Winning Bidder:
No matter how much you pay, you better make the site worth my time.
2001-11-28 01:33:32 PM  
Let the last second bidding war begin....
2001-11-28 01:33:55 PM  
Doesn't matter. If I won, the mods would just delete everything I did anyway.
2001-11-28 01:35:50 PM  
Drew also reserves the right to revoke your day and refund you in full if you turn out to be a complete ass.

Sounds like a dare to me. Can i be stupid enough to recoup my $610. Hmm .. better not risk it.
2001-11-28 01:43:43 PM  
Excellent, excellent marketing ploy DREW you are a farking genius!!!!!!

boobies that how to raise funds thingy...

Then; no mods thingy NSFW....

Then; post the E-bay thingy right before the bidding wars!!!

Hope it works out for ya!

Now, post at least one of my submissions darnitt!
2001-11-28 01:44:45 PM  
heh this actually looks like a pretty cool thing - too bad I cant afford it :/
2001-11-28 01:45:18 PM  
I'm in the process of highjacking a school bus. Going to drive down to the skid row blood bank and drain all the plasma out of the little snots. That should make me a couple of grand to bid with.
2001-11-28 01:45:20 PM  
how much beer can you buy with 610$ in the U.S.?
2001-11-28 01:48:07 PM  
From earlier post>>>

boobies that how to raise funds thingy...

Ooops, forgot that Phirst thingy...
2001-11-28 01:48:42 PM  
"how much beer can you buy with 610$ in the U.S.?"

None. The US can't make real beer. :)
2001-11-28 01:54:58 PM  
"how much beer can you buy with 610$ in the U.S.?"

he didn't say real beer.....
2001-11-28 01:57:42 PM  
This is brilliant. Drew has convinced people to pay him, just to do his job for a day.
2001-11-28 01:59:28 PM  
2001-11-28 01:59:31 PM  
Why was the NSFW tread deleted I was just getting my Flame on!
2001-11-28 01:59:47 PM  
No, but he COULD take a trip to Canada to get some real beer
2001-11-28 02:01:44 PM  
"the US can't make real beer"

No, but Ireland and Germany can, and being the rich devils that we are, we can afford to import like mad.

ah, the joys of capitalism.
2001-11-28 02:01:57 PM  
Yeah but who wants to go to Canada?
2001-11-28 02:01:58 PM  
Reinstate the TEST thread!!
2001-11-28 02:02:08 PM  
Canada... it's Australlian for beer."
2001-11-28 02:03:30 PM  
I didn't even get to comment on the test thread before it got yanked.
2001-11-28 02:04:26 PM  
There's no mention of what day. I bet the catch is that the lucky winner must run Fark on Christmas.
2001-11-28 02:05:44 PM  
They said they wouldn't delete posts, not the thread itself.
2001-11-28 02:07:53 PM  
"the US can't make real beer"

That used to be the case. US beer is as good as anything else these days, though. Fark canada; I'll have a Sammy. And when I rule Fark, so will the rest of you bastidges.
2001-11-28 02:09:42 PM  
Yeah, sure St.Alfonzo..
2001-11-28 02:12:11 PM  
maybe the winner can redo the test thread!
So is that radio DJ still winning?
2001-11-28 02:15:04 PM  
One hour left. Hoo boy.

And here they come down the track...
2001-11-28 02:17:57 PM  
Hmm I wonder what the odds are of the winner trying to stiff drew on the bid??
2001-11-28 02:18:05 PM  
Still makes me wonder what Drew purchased off of ebay...
His server? Beer cooler? Humm, we might never know.
2001-11-28 02:19:41 PM  
Well if the current high bidder ($765.00) wins the auction, it ought to be interesting, as they seem to be a LEGOmaniac. See for yourself (previous auctions they've won).

-he who stacks pork
2001-11-28 02:20:21 PM  
Don't think you can't buy good US made beer. Think about Mendocino Brewing, Pyramid, Pete's, Anchor, Celis, Shiner, and a gazillion others most of you gnads would never have heard of because they don't come in cans!
Miller and Anheiser make sad, lifeless beer with no soul. If you drink their beer you are a sad sheep, fooled into thinking that is what beer is supposed to taste like.
Go home now. Your momma's callin' ya!
Oh, and on the subject, I hope Drew has a big party to celebrate, realizes he should do this more, sets up a once a week gig and lives the rest of his life as an alchoholic!
2001-11-28 02:22:56 PM  
Whicheva one a y'all motherfukkas win this shiznit, don't be messin' with ma flow. Eva since Midstate got this hi-speed Nite Rida groove goin' on, I been checkin y'alls shiat out. It's pretty fly, but afta I tole that freak-ass ho Judy from Payabos about this, she's been all up on Fb-, wantin' some o dat Caribbean "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" shiat.

Just don't fukk up the site, or else I gotta flex the Letta Opener of Death on ya.

Peace out.
2001-11-28 02:25:18 PM  
Herbert: your post was korn-filled.
2001-11-28 02:28:03 PM  
Who is jotandjab anyway?
2001-11-28 02:28:15 PM  
Accounts Reeceevable rules.
2001-11-28 02:30:40 PM  
You guys don't realize that Drew's plan is to throw a party with the winnings, and you're all invited!

Drew walks into an American Bar and says, "Drinks are on me." He ran up a tab of $42,000, and wishes to keep his name anonymous.

2001-11-28 02:31:37 PM  
Yes, let jotandjab post, and tell us what he/she/it/them/// plan to do, if they plan. And you are right, Drew is very smart, pay me, and do my job. That is sweet, i am going to go hang myself now.
2001-11-28 02:34:58 PM  
Trying to find a way to get someone to pay me to do my job for a day.....
2001-11-28 02:35:46 PM  
41 mins, 53 secs
and counting.....
2001-11-28 02:36:09 PM  




2001-11-28 02:36:33 PM  
I will win, and I will migrate Fark to run off of 802.11 wireless iMac portables suspended from Hydrogen blimps nationwide. Drew will be unable to reclaim the network, although I am preparing for a long drawn out battle against jetpack equipped warriors.
2001-11-28 02:38:12 PM  
It's starting to take off.

Where it stops nobody knows...
2001-11-28 02:39:42 PM  
MrBrownNow: Propz to you for knowing about Shiner and Celis.
2001-11-28 02:39:51 PM  
Deathcow: Nothing runs on an iMac.
2001-11-28 02:39:51 PM  
looks like someone reads the Onion a little too much... but he is my favorite columnist so its cool with deez nutZ
2001-11-28 02:40:05 PM  
Hmmm, what would I do if I ruled Fark for a day?

Two words: dwarf porn!
2001-11-28 02:56:17 PM  
I think this legomaniac is going to make a HUGE space lego playground, and do nothing but promote it all day on FARK
2001-11-28 02:59:32 PM  
I just realized that any ebayer that wins will simply use the site to promote their own sales on ebay.

hope you all were looking to buy some legos for x-mas!
2001-11-28 03:00:38 PM  
Hey why don't you have a weekly fark newsletter with 10 or so fark only links and sell ad space in it? Be you could make a few bucks with that.
2001-11-28 03:01:45 PM  
Snipe-it says what?
2001-11-28 03:10:00 PM  
this will work well with my plastic fetish
