I can't speak to where this idea actually came from (likely alcohol was a factor) but Storm, who just turned 10 years old, has expressed interest in sprucing up the video tab.  He says it sucks and he has a plan to fix it. 


So, we're gonna activate him as a quasi fark admin here shortly and see what he ends up posting.  The results could be really bizarre, or better, or both.  No idea really. 


At any rate, if the video tab starts to look like we've lost our minds we really haven't, we've just turned it over to a 10 year old. 


Nothing can possibly go wrong with this idea

As long as he refrains from posting an entire queue's worth of Rammstein videos everything should be ok.
 
2013-09-03 12:41:22 PM
I will continue not visiting the video tab.

My dad let me drive the company jeep at 10.  On top of a mountain.  It was also a stick shift.  My 16-year-old cousin was with me at the time.  I'm pretty sure he shiat his pants at one point.

Well, Drew, *I* for one applaud this. Too many young people these days are playing those video games and running around malls instead of buckling down and producing. Hell, you and the wife should pop out a couple more kids and before you know it you have your brand spanking new Moderation and Administrative team. Win/win baby!

Starryeyes: I don't know what else to add here, so does anyone want to buy me a pair of $800 shoes?


I know someone from the Boston area who has a shoe problem, and she doesn't have to pay for most of them.  Instead, she has an agreement with a guy that he will pay for her shoes as long as takes pictures and posts them on her blog.  Did you try that route?  Doesn't seem creepy at all.

Same here, except my shoes dont' cost anywhere near $800. I just need a couple of work shoes. Probably cost $100 for both

What sort of shoes?

Marc Jacobs t-strap black heels.


I know this will make me sound like a stereotypical dude, but what the f*ck can possibly be in a pair of shoes that makes them cost $800? Is there some sort of precious metal involved? Diamonds?

If it were binary, yes.

Storm Curtis is someone who, presumably, will grow up to race cars.

Based on my name, on the other hand, will grow up to be one of the really nerd apostles. (Though I assume all those positions have been filled).

             daft to build a site that aggregated the news sites, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em.  It sank into the swamp.  So, I redesigned it. That sank into the                    swamp.  So I redesigned it again.  That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp.  But the fourth one stayed up. An' that's what your gonna get, lad --                the best news aggregation site in these islands.

There's a YouTube-r out there that calls himself "Sky," and his buds are known as "Sky Army."  He does reviews and critiques of the various Minecraft addons that are out there (amongst other things).  He introduced my son (and, by proxy, me) to the weather mod.  TORNADOES!!!!11!!

Drew: I can't speak to where this idea actually came from (likely alcohol was a factor) but Storm, who just turned 10 years old, has expressed interest in sprucing up the video tab.  He says it sucks and he has a plan to fix it.


So, we're gonna activate him as a quasi fark admin here shortly and see what he ends up posting.  The results could be really bizarre, or better, or both.  No idea really.


At any rate, if the video tab starts to look like we've lost our minds we really haven't, we've just turned it over to a 10 year old.


Nothing can possibly go wrong with this idea


Drew... my only complaint with the video tab is this: people submit Youtube videos, use the video tag, and then submit them to the Video tab. It's redundant. If the video is from Youtube, or it's being submitted to the Video tab, the submitter should not be allowed to select the video tag. That way, they use the tag to tell us if it's funny, strange, asinine, etc.

Good day sir,

To say this dog is upset after getting a bath is an understatement. To listen to him argue with his owner over it is an absolute pleasure

I don't think a single fark comment liked it and several were abusive.

How long a ban does someone get if they comment:

Ugh, I'm so stupid.  I should've asked my son if he's seen any good Minecraft videos lately (it would've been in the past week or 2 since he left here).  Of course, then I'd have to tell him it's coz I want to submit them to FARK.  And then he'd ask, "What's FARK?"  And I'd have to tell him.  And then I'd be in REALLY BIG TROUBLE NOW, MISTER!!!

You'd think that no 10-year-old would get drunk, but I was 2 when I got smashed.  Drank everyone's beer at some big picnic thingee.  True story.  Cool story, bro.  Etc.

Drew is apparently passed out on the couch while Storm in out cruising the neighborhood in the SUV.

Good. A couple of days without the usual repeats might be nice.

As a father of an unpredictable 9-year-old, I say "go for it!" I'll be over here with my popcorn.

LET'S DO THIS
 
2013-09-03 10:24:15 PM
as long as it doesn't turn in to Fark TV. sure go ahead. I mean a 10 yr old can have more greenlights that a liter thats only been coming here for 10 years or so...

/nope not bitter....

Drew: Nothing can possibly go wrong with this idea


Well, it can't be worse than Vine, or all the animated GIFs on Google+, right?

Hey, you, boy!

2013-09-03 11:35:29 PM
This is a fantastic idea and I lend it my full support.
 
2013-09-03 11:44:43 PM
It couldn't be worse than the flood of LiveLeak postings of stolen YT vids.
 
2013-09-04 12:06:07 AM
So does this mean we get a couple of greens before school, and a bunch after homework is done and before bed-time?

/What time is dinner at Drew's
//Might be best time time to submit vids
///Looking forward to Stormeddon's reign

gilbyguy: STORM: I'd rather... just...[music] ...sing!
DREW: Stop that, stop that! You're not going to do a song while I'm here. Now listen lad, in twenty minutes you're getting married to a girl whose father owns the biggest headline composition firm in Britain.


JEFF: You'll get over it, Drew.

Finally, a mature FARK admin on ONE of the tabs.

I had DREW Favorited as OUR FEARLESS LEADER.
now just a troll.say it aint so,troll.say it aint so.
 
2013-09-04 01:37:57 AM
I submitted this with a better headline.
Who the hell is Drew Curtis?
If the Video tab is hurt, just put it down like the Music tab and get over it.
Storm?  Who's running this place, Gwyneth Paltrow?

bigpete53: Calling CPS. No child should be exposed to Total Farkers.


I question the wisdom of exposure myself, but it does thoroughly explains the level of depravity throughout. It's not everyday I lose all respect for a man I thought was intelligent.

Zotfripper: I submit TORNADOES AND VOMIT!


Brilliant!
 
2013-09-04 02:53:44 AM
So we are bring back Foobies then?

xanadian: Drew: Nothing can possibly go wrong with this idea

Having a 10-year-old of my own, I'm betting it'll be awesome.

EviLincoln: So we can expect lots of videos about minecraft?

Like I was saying.  Having a 10-year-old of my own......


To my 10yo, Minecraft is so last year.  Clash of Clans rules.

Starryeyes: mitchcumstein1: Starryeyes: I don't know what else to add here, so does anyone want to buy me a pair of $800 shoes?

What sort of shoes?

Marc Jacobs t-strap black heels.

The permaban for linking Drew's kid to 2girls1cup is going to be totally worth it
 
2013-09-04 05:26:46 AM

Half Right: Drew: we've just turned it over to a 10 year old.

I think the world would be a far more interesting and fun place if this happened more often.


I think that's asinine.

A three to six year old? Hell, the world will be freaking INSANE.

10 years seems to be around the age where kids lose their imaginations and develop their egos.
 
2013-09-04 07:29:59 AM

Drew: At any rate, if the video tab starts to look like we've lost our minds we really haven't, we've just turned it over to a 10 year old.


This could be epic.

Gig103: JEFF: You'll get over it


Thank god someone mentioned this for the 483,584,692nd time. It's still just so dang funny.

I don't even recognize this place anymore . . .

Wait, what, Storm had to go to bed, isn't that cute.
 
2013-09-04 02:13:21 PM
That's really cool of Dad.  I believe that when you encourage kids' senses of creativity and industry, they develop healthier self esteem.
