raerae1980: I'd like more details, like when and how the water got in.   I'd also like to see more pics.  This could have been an interesting article.


The water didn't get in. Sounds like even if there were more details you wouldn't have read them.

Mean Daddy: So they should spend $5 for something they can get for free?  Sounds like a liberal newspaper business model.  How's that working out?


What are you even trying to say here?

Princess Ryans Knickers: Amazing how many articles appear on other sites like Digg's front and then here hours or a day later.


Princess, if you want to see what really shows up on Fark's door step you should pony up the $5/month, I can attest you will get the same shiatty experience as Digg or any other aggregator with less conservative submission approval processes.

I agree.  The amount of original content coming from Fark has been close to zero for awhile.  All they do is get their articles from somewhere else

TWX: It's only about fifteen feet under water at the shore, so I don't expect that it's sealed to outside atmosphere at the above-water-line entrance. It's also very likely that the infrastructure that runs everything, including the HVAC system, is above the water and in a little outbuilding on the shore.


You've operated underwater strip clubs before, haven't you?  What are the insurance premiums like?

/yeah, I know...
//body glitter, desperate men, and the tears of strippers' broken dreams sounds better


Upon reflection, it sounds like the opening line of a dime store detective novel I should write.

Pray 4 Mojo: starsrift: Pray 4 Mojo: If it's underwater... how did it get dusty inside?

Anyone?

It's not leaking, it's just submerged to give an underwater view. It's a shirtsleeve environment. Hell, you can see an empty plastic bottle resting on a table in one of the pics.

Yeah... I know it's not "flooded"... but... dust comes from settling particles in the air... if the thing is submerged and sealed... the only dust to settle would have been what was in the air when it was closed up... and that wouldn't be much. How did it continue to get dusty?

The residual sadness from years of desperate men and strippers' broken dreams?


Ha! That's probably it.

Or most of it is body glitter.

How badly do you have to fark up the business model to not make money on a peeler bar?  And one that has the ambience of a Bond villain lair, too?

/If I had enough petty cash I'd buy it and run my own undersea peeler bar.  With blackjack and hookers.
//In fact, forget the bar.

I like Fark's selection of articles.  I don't care about timeliness.

Like another poster said, if you want to sift through a dump of all the latest crap without the nice filtering, pay for TF.  As someone with limited time, I can't imagine doing that.

But then you'd have to use Digg, and no one should be subjected to that shiathole of a website.

I don't care so much about that, but rather the fact that the article was horribly uninformative.

Oh look - there's a strip club - underwater.

End of story

WTF?
