about time
 
2001-12-18 11:30:30 AM  
W00t, a new article!!!
Now I quickly have to say something to show people I've even read it...

BRB

HALLE-F'in-LUJAH!!!

I'm glad I didn't have to post the goatse picture in the last thread.

BLAME CANANDA!
 
2001-12-18 11:32:55 AM  
Not that I could finish this article anyway. I got to the sentence that contained 'Canada is now the world leader' and the gag reflex kicked in
 
2001-12-18 11:33:12 AM  
Wow!

1 - Come up with a theory
2 - Prove it

Hey! It works for science! :)

"Successful experiment gives Canada 'bragging rights'"

In other news, successful experiment turns most of Canada into smoking crater. "But ain't it a big crater, dere, eh?" said one scientist.

Damn you Funkychuck.
Chicken..

Anyway, this was most intriguing:
duplicating the reaction of the isotope oxygen 15, which is believed to be the spark that ignites nova explosions and x-ray bursts.

If the terrorist know how to use this isotope they have won!

This just in: Canadian experiment causes creation of post-doubling due to quantum flux.
 
2001-12-18 11:35:15 AM  
Hey, maybe they can turn it into a weapon and then they can take over the US. Then we can be civilized. :)

Props to the Canadians...

Did I just say that?

Too bad that nothing will ever prove to the religious nutcases that their entire belief system is one giant, pathetic flaw.
 
2001-12-18 11:35:56 AM  
Man, it's cool that they did it, but ASININE that they're bragging about being first. It seems like Canadian scientists are the only ones who give a damn that they're first...every other team seems to think globally.
 
2001-12-18 11:36:33 AM  
Wow, this is ten billion times more cool than the space shuttle arm!
 
2001-12-18 11:36:45 AM  
Ok, everyone sing. Oh Canada, LA, LA, LA, DOO DAH...
 
2001-12-18 11:36:57 AM  
Bugger_All- I didn't chicken out. In fact, I had it all ready to go and was waiting for the countdown to post it when the new article went up. Fundomatic was less than a minute away from getting Fark goatse'd
 
2001-12-18 11:38:13 AM  
"Canada is now the world leader in this research,"

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
 
2001-12-18 11:38:34 AM  
Deus, you are very naive about what motivates scientific advancement.
 
2001-12-18 11:40:27 AM  
So the Canadians are saying First Supernova? (Reference to Boobies)
 
2001-12-18 11:40:50 AM  
Ok, ok...Canada and England. Now you're just mocking me. So I must repeat my ultimatum. New article within 20 minutes or this thread gets hit with the goatse_cx guy. It's childish, I know, but you guys have to understand how bored I am sitting in an empty office.
 
2001-12-18 11:40:51 AM  
Imagine that in some bar, as you approach an attractive woman:
"Hey baby, my name is Docwra"
"Oh hi Docwra, what do you do for a living?"
"I recreate supernovas and other quantum events"
*SWOON* "Take me home Docwra"

What would prolly happen is:

"Hey baby, my name is Docwra"
"Oh hi Docwra, what do you do for a living?"
"I recreate supernovas and other quantum events"
"fark off and leave me alone you geek"
 
2001-12-18 11:41:45 AM  
Er... I meant reference to the phrase which gets filtered to boooooobies. Boobies?
 
2001-12-18 11:41:58 AM  
Hmmmmmm, the Vancouver "SUN" carries a story about a supernova. Obviously biased reporting and not to be trusted.
 
2001-12-18 11:42:29 AM  
Funkychuck: No worries, just tossing a hook in the water. Seems to me that discussions are even more intense today. Could be because of lack of targets to practice on..

Rock on.
 
2001-12-18 11:44:47 AM  
Oh, btw, did any one notice that the Vancouver 'SUN' has a layout quite similair to the one from the BBC?

Judge Yourself
 
2001-12-18 11:45:24 AM  
Its amazing what can happen when one leaves a baked potato in the microwave oven too long.

Did it seem that the scientists were more excited about actually accomplishing something, as opposed to being excited about what they accomplished?
 
2001-12-18 11:46:17 AM  
Yay!

And no doubt, much like the Telephone and Modern Jet Fighter, the US will eventually assume THEY must have invented it.

Wheee.

What's up with this idiot?!? He paid $800 to put a banner to his gay-ass website?!?

Ruin fark.com for a day so you can put up a link to your website.

At least Drew got some beer money from this idiot.
 
2001-12-18 11:47:12 AM  
I applaud Canada but they still have a long way to go before I forgive them for Bryan Adams.

And yes, I am sure they give a fark about my opinions of them.
 
2001-12-18 11:48:19 AM  
I do beleive we appologized about Brain Adams a long time ago.

2001-12-18 11:52:24 AM  
I thought that unnatural suck was coming from fark today. Turns out it was canada? Maybe it's both.
 
2001-12-18 11:52:50 AM  
Not a bad deal, if you think about the level of traffic through here, Fb-. I clicked on one of his links out of curiosity. The Montior Contest is pretty cool too. It's called "Marketing".
 
2001-12-18 11:54:24 AM  
Hey, they gave us Canada Dry. They can't be all bad... I think it's neat how their money looks so similar to American money, but it's only worth like half.
 
2001-12-18 11:54:35 AM  
Ok, they apoligized for Brian Adams, but what about Chevy Chase? Come n get him, PLEASE! Time for a permanant Canadian Vacation.
 
2001-12-18 11:55:19 AM  
The first country to create a champagne supernova in the lab gets a free concert from Oasis.
 
2001-12-18 11:56:55 AM  
OK,
I lied about the telphone. Bell was Scottish and living in Boston when he invented it. Sorry.

Damn those pro-Canuck revisoinist history books screwing with my mind.

Fb-,

You seem to be infatuated with gays and their asses. I suggest you seek help.

when they figure out artificial cock and ball torture, give me a call

Way to endanger the planet and solar system, guys.

I hope you regret not going to medical school when you open up a black hole or spacial rip or something.
 
2001-12-18 12:00:07 PM  
Scarneck Nun unh. If we take him back, then you'll just want us to take back Allen Thicke and that guy from JAG. No way we're opening those floud gates. We got enough crappy actors who *won't* leave, thank you very much.
 
2001-12-18 12:01:31 PM  
godammit, the new linking to other pages where the Fark banner should be thing sucks Hugh Jass!!!!!!

Canada 1 USA "We stopped counting"
 
2001-12-18 12:07:24 PM  
Rabb:
You are true to your word.
The cock and ball torture has been brought up at every opportunity. (Rightfully so).
If nothing else is amusing me today you are.
 
2001-12-18 12:07:38 PM  
Heh, is this what they call "yellow" journalism. By yellow I mean wrong, or purposefully deceptive. You notice how they put the supernova in quotes, like so: "supernova". That is because what these people have done has to do with "novas" NOT "supernovas". For a bunch of people "in the lead in astrophysics research" these Canucks seem to be a bit shy on their basics.
 
2001-12-18 12:07:40 PM  
Fiqh!
 
2001-12-18 12:09:37 PM  
HEy!

We also invented chocolate milk powder Thankyouverymuch!
 
2001-12-18 12:10:54 PM  
First Shatner, now this... Canada will burn in hell. Allah be praised.
 
2001-12-18 12:11:02 PM  
You guys rule in my book then, Canuck.
 
2001-12-18 12:11:16 PM  
Don't blame us for Strawberry Quick though. Not our fault.
