PC LOAD LETTER: Poor manta ray. They are harmless and you have to kill it because ooh big.


Kinda. The caption annoys me more:

*The "Great Manta" that was captured....*

Captured? That's it? Looks like it's dead, to me.

Superjew: aka "previously posted on reddit"


AKA, previously posted everywhere, you twat.

Honestly, this hipster-ish "I saw it before it got to Fark" stuff makes you look like a complete coont.

Whereas you calling me a coont makes you look like a total hero.

My point wasn't OMG REPOST, it was "this entire photo series was lazily lifted from another website in toto", and they didn't even have the decency to post the pics at hi-rez, to boot.


Really?  That was your point?  I came away thinking "this douche bag thinks he's cool because he saw something on Reddit.  Cool enough to brag about it on fark.  I bet he posted the original  just so he could brag in the thread if it goes green."  I was wrong, my bad.

Aquapope: indy_kid: I'm guessing that if the crew of Apollo I hadn't died on the pad, they would have died in space, ending the entire program right then and there.  Imagine them orbiting the Earth for a few months until the capsule would have finally re-entered the atmosphere.

Godspeed, fellas.

On the plus side, we know not to fark with Buzz Aldrin.

Alebak: Nefarious: It was legal to mail children in 1913?

I'm pretty sure that was proven as a myth


I can't say, but I know that in 1916 my maternal great-grandmother put my 7-year-old grandfather on the train in Ft Worth to join his father in Reno. Grandpa travelled with his ticket and destination instructions pinned to his jacket. My great-grandparents had divorced two years earlier and he'd moved to Reno. G-Grandma kept the younger boy, but her excuse was that she couldn't afford two boys on a washerwoman's wages. She later remarried and my grandfather rejoined her in about 1922. I was always fascinated by the story, and Grandpa told me that the train crew took care of him during transit and turned him over to a policeman when they arrived in Reno, who gave my grandpa instructions to find grand-grandpa's house.

Aquapope: The people who started Tel Aviv and Hitler's 4th grade class.  How different would today's world be if somebody had wiped out everybody in both those pics?


Actually, the greatest benefit might have come from wiping out the 1919 peace treaty. The decisions that they made almost a century ago resonate even to today. From the division of Europe, the punishment of Germany, from the partitioning of the Ottoman empire in the most ridiculous way possible etc. etc. etc.

In approximately 6 months, the decisions made by supposedly intelligent men set the stage for WW2, Jewish/Muslim conflicts, most Middle East conflicts, not to mention communism getting a foothold. They drew lines on a map and signed papers and though that, well, that solves everything!

I doubt that killing a 10ish year old boy, or snuffing out some jewish settlers would've made as much of a difference.

What makes me wonder is what the police and others who just stood by think 50 years later. I mean, nowadays, you dump ketchup on someone and you get charged with assault or something. But at the time, it was OK to just let people behave like animals because teh blacks.

If you must morn one manta ray, please shed a tear for the hundreds of animals that Darwin killed over his lifetime.  Oh, and while you are at it, cry up a storm for the thirty giant tortoises from the Galapagos that Darwin and his crew mates ate on the voyage home.

PC LOAD LETTER: Dr.Fey: PC LOAD LETTER: Poor manta ray. They are harmless and you have to kill it because ooh big.

FTA:  Modern Mechanix reports that "a giant Manta Devil Fish became entangled in the anchor and anchor rope of Captain A. L. Kahn's fishing boat while he was angling just off the shore of New Jersey, almost capsizing the heavy boat. A Coast Guard vessel came to the rescue, and killed the 5,000-pound monster Manta Birostris with 22 shots from a high-powered rifle."

Please read the caption a little farther down the page.

Bleh. Thanks. Surprising I wasn't right considering the day and age.


Kind of makes you wonder what else you are wrong about. (In a general sense.)
