WAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I don't care about this article, so I'm gonig to whine about how much I hate Fark!

2001-12-18 08:02:41 PM  
It shall me MINE... OooH yes.. it shall be *wisper* mine. mUAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH
2001-12-18 08:02:51 PM  
Quick1 you're cracking me up.
2001-12-18 08:03:25 PM  
woo hoo!
2001-12-18 08:03:34 PM  
my birthday is tomorrow. if there is a kind or just god-ish thing out there, i will win.

i'd be happy with something decent on tv, though.
2001-12-18 08:04:03 PM  
No 21" monitor is worth signing up for spam. Well, maybe a Trinitron. Hmm.
2001-12-18 08:04:16 PM  
That means I win the monitor, right? Right?
2001-12-18 08:05:31 PM  
Zorgon, we send you one newsletter every two weeks, and you can unsubscribe any time. And its a really nice monitor. I'm using one right now.
2001-12-18 08:05:32 PM  
Zorgon, just use a different e-mail address. Sign up for hotmail or something, and then you only have to check if you've won or not. It's what I do when I give out my e-mail to any company.
2001-12-18 08:05:51 PM  
How much does it cost to host Fark every month? An honest question, not a jab.
2001-12-18 08:06:15 PM  
It's not spam, it's

Actually, it's a mailing list.
I expect some high octane advice, Fundomatic.
2001-12-18 08:07:35 PM  
Brother, all kidding aside, we really do know mutual funds. So if you're thinking about investing, we are a very good resource.
2001-12-18 08:08:59 PM  
now all i need is money to invest.
2001-12-18 08:09:15 PM  
I'll be glad when Fundomatic's regin of terror is over. Not because I think Fark is suffering, its because of all the whining going on today, my god.

There's a number of farkers I feel like kicking in the stomach after reading through a number of posts.

Oh well, I hope Fundo still had fun.
2001-12-18 08:09:50 PM  
I wonder if Maxfunds will fix this contestso that a local person wins. It would cost a sh!tload of money to ship a 21" monitor to Mozambique or somewhere equally remote
2001-12-18 08:09:56 PM  
I can't invest, those farkers at Janus toasted my 401k.
2001-12-18 08:10:09 PM  
if you don't want spam
just send maxfunds to /dev/null
thank god for procmail
2001-12-18 08:10:10 PM  
Hm, the mailing list doesn't bother me that much. Of course I work at a brokerage dealing with institutional investors and fund managers all day long. But do I really want to hear more about work stuff?
2001-12-18 08:10:12 PM  
ArmyofFund: Hell yeah, it was a blast!
2001-12-18 08:10:31 PM  
So unfortunate that the net worth of an average subject of farkinstan is ½ oz navel lint and an empty plastic 6 pack strip.

No cash, no mutual fund investments, just lint.
But I like the moxie behind the drawing.
2001-12-18 08:11:50 PM  
now all i need is money to invest.

Ditto. If I had more than a few hundred bucks to spend every semester, I might think about investing. It's going to have to wait a couple of years.

Also, I'll chime in with ArmyOfFun when saying that I hope you had fun with Fark for a day, Fundo. I know I would have. Of course, my day would have been and endless list of boobies, but thems the breaks.
2001-12-18 08:12:07 PM  
I gave in- really want a 21 incher and also looking forward to teeage lesbians sending me email asking me to give them a call on their special private lines- w00t!!!!

Actually if the advice is good, I am all for it. My mutual fund is an index fund and I am always looking for others. Like I have any farking money left at the end of the month!!! Perchance to dream........
2001-12-18 08:12:36 PM  
Mr. Obvious: Not to get all fundomatic on you but most mutual funds nowadays have very low mimimums (like $100) if you sign up for an automatic investment plan. It's a good deal.
2001-12-18 08:13:08 PM  
Sixdeadpands: the fix is in
Butterweasel: Just read our site, you'll be buying up your favorite sites right and left with the extra loot in no time!

As an ex-pro whiner (4 years in the big leagues), and given the amount of 'newbie' whining that's been going on, I thought the following acerbic creation would be quite appropriate.

2001-12-18 08:15:21 PM  
Fundo, any idea what the chances of winning are right now?
2001-12-18 08:15:49 PM  
Screw mutual funds. It's better to work at the stock exchange and just make money off spreads and not have to know anything.
2001-12-18 08:16:48 PM  
If I win, you keep the monitor, sell it on Ebay, invest the money for me and make me a

2001-12-18 08:17:40 PM  
Quick1: We got about 3000 so far.

You know, that's not a bad idea for a contest. Win, say, $1,000 in mutual funds.
2001-12-18 08:19:03 PM  
Or more than that, or more winners, depending on how much cash you want to blow.
2001-12-18 08:19:37 PM  
When a link with "Yo Yo Yo" in the title is submitted and accepted, the terrorists have won.
2001-12-18 08:20:13 PM  
is this a TV monitor or a computer monitor? because if it is a TV monitor, I might as well win it and then give it to someone for christmas.

Wouldn't that be sappy? ;-)

2001-12-18 08:21:23 PM  
It's a computer montitor.
2001-12-18 08:21:44 PM  
on second thought (and some measuring), I'll just take the 21", I wonder what I could do with my two 13" TVs. :)
2001-12-18 08:22:27 PM  
Am I the only one wondering exactly how the winner will be chosen? Or have I missed something while wading through the veritable shiatload of whiny posts?
2001-12-18 08:23:30 PM  
We're picking someone at random
2001-12-18 08:23:38 PM  
I'm going to be really pissed if I wake up tomorrow and have 2000 messages in my inbox from all the companies you sold my email to. Of course, my anger could be tempered by actually winning...
2001-12-18 08:24:27 PM  
Fundomatic will just pick me since he can save on shipping.
2001-12-18 08:24:57 PM  
Like an eeny meeny kinda thing?
2001-12-18 08:25:27 PM  
Let's see:
A targeted mailing list of three thousand names
eight-hundred dollars and a day's work

I think I will trust the sagity of your institution's financial advice.
2001-12-18 08:25:47 PM  
3000? are you high? We don't have that many members...
2001-12-18 08:26:03 PM  
"slighty used by an actual Director of Technology of an actual Internet Start-Up, until his position was actually eliminated earlier this year!"

I cant believe you guys are wanting to get a monitor from a poor man who lost his job!

..hope I dont get any spam :)
2001-12-18 08:26:17 PM  
Monitor.....soul.....monitor.....soul.......monitor?.....soul?....... Monitor!.....Soul!......

Your own account number is over fifteen thousand.
Are you high?
