Obese cube monkey subby can undoubtedly do much better.

I still think Rok Perko had the worst fail of the games.  I still can't believe he got up after his crash.

Hey Fark, stop trying to make Buzzfeed happen.

CipollinaFan: Hey Fark, stop trying to make Buzzfeed happen.


Buzzfeed pays for content to be posted. You can see these "sponsored links" in the list of posted articles. They help keep Fark afloat.

So if posting an occasional link to them keeps them happy and paying, we ought to be encouraging it.

That said, this link is fail #40.

say what you will about boringness, but the winter Olympics has it all over the summer Olympics for falling on your butt to watch your dreams vaporize.

It's a Buzzfeed list, but it's not a slideshow.  I'm confused.

I'm confused as to why subby thinks hockey players colliding is considered a fail?

it's a contact sport. collisions will occur.

I would consider it a fail if collisions didn't occur in hockey.

even for a Buzzfeed list, this is pretty scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Heh. My wife went to school with Kaya Turski, and is Facebook friends with her personal (not fan) account. She dislocated her shoulder in that fall, and posted some pics of her bruises.

I am reminded that ice is very, very hard.

It's not that. It's just that the fan account is all positive pics and sentiments, and I had to differentiate. Turns out, there's not really any way to do that that doesn't sound like a pathetic form of name dropping.

/Snark on, though :p

Is there a name for the phenomena where people watch things like figure skating and NASCAR just for the crashes? I suffer from this affliction.

It's a stupid Buzzfeed link, but I do find Winter Olympic fails to be so much more enjoyable to watch than Summer OIympic fails.

I saw that one live. It made me sad. Sure, it was a bad fall and he didn't get hurt. But that Russian showed at lot of heart to finish the race

Say what you will about Buzzfeed, but they've always kept things on one page.  HuffPo used to do a lot of annoying slideshows but I think even they're moving away from that.

The problem is not the format, it's the content.

I think Schadenfreude would be what you feel afterwards. Maybe, in mangled German, something like "Vorschadenfreude": literally "before malicious joy".

This...is actually a good point. 

Nor is it a bullshiat video like ViralNova. At least you can glance at their crappy link quickly, realize it's nothing you want to see, and move on.

his legs are longer than my body from the look of that picture

and to the people saying BuzzFeed is fail - do you even realize the money they are making and the traffic they get? A lot of the content is garbage, but the people in charge aren't dumb.

39 Olympic Athletes Who Are Having A Worse Day Than You

I somehow doubt it. I'm chasing the cause of a week and a half long headache, already had a CT Scan(And the resulting fear of a tumor or something bad), and all that settled was that I don't have a TOO-MUR. The headache still persists, the meds they gave me make sodas taste funny, and I still live paycheck to paycheck on a boring job. At least these guys get to go to the friggin' Olympics.

Yeah, I know they aren't making bank, and a lot of them had to auction a kidney and a niece to get there, but they are competing on the national stage, that's got to make it a better day than what most of us are having.

Besides, if they get hurt REALLY bad, there's always morphine.

Then keep them as "sponsored links" rather than stick them into the regular feed.
 
2014-02-13 12:28:14 PM  
Fails?  Those people managed to get to the height of their sport, and while they may not make it home with a gold they've accomplished quite a lot.

The Buzzfeed author, on the other hand, has gone nowhere with his or her English degree and now resorts to posting a bunch of pictures to make an "article"; I'm sure his or her parents are very proud.
