Fark NotNewsletter: In it to win it
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2016-08-08 1:22:35 PM (24 comments) | Permalink

You can train to be an Olympic athlete, sacrificing and toiling since childhood, all of your work and suffering leading up to a small moment when one ill-timed sneeze could smash your dreams into smithereens, leaving you only with the hope that you can try again in four years... or you could just try to make it into the Fark NotNewsletter and get another chance each week. Yeah, it's a lot more prestigious to have an Olympic medal, but you can do the NotNewsletter thing while eating Hot Pockets in your underwear.

A big congratulations and thank you go out to Principal Clarinet for passing 20,000 greenlit links last week. I mean, he's had over 20,000 greenlights total, not just in the past week. That would be excessive for just one week. Well done! And while we're at it, here's a thank you to all of our top submitters, middle submitters, and the poor schmucks who can't get a greenlight to save their lives. We really appreciate your contributions, and we never really mean the things we say about your mothers.

Fark NotNewsletter: Ain't no party like a hump day party
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2016-07-18 2:37:39 PM (35 comments) | Permalink

There are two big Fark Parties coming up on Wednesday. In New York, Farkers are meeting up at the Buffalo Zoo, though I don't know how you can have an entire zoo just filled with buffaloes. Well, I guess it'll be stocked up with buffaloes and Farkers on Wednesday, so plenty of hairy beasts will be on hand. In California, Farkers are getting together at Hop-Con to enjoy some Farking Wheaton W00tstout. There will be nerds, nerd drinks, nerd games, and nerd kibble. Oh yeah, and some nerd named Drew.

Remember, you can plan a Fark Party in your neck of the woods. Someone on Twitter suggested having one at the Ark Encounter in Kentucky. Guess that would make it the FArk Encounter, el oh el.

Fark NotNewsletter: Let me show you it
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2016-07-11 3:20:51 PM (67 comments) | Permalink

Some awful stuff happened last week, but I'm not going to talk about that here because I don't think you've been holding your breath waiting for DisseminationMonkey's input. Aside from those things, for some damned reason, it seems like the biggest topic of conversation is Pokémon Go. I haven't played it, and I'm not even sure what a Pokémon is. But if Fark is any indication, it's getting some people to accidentally exercise, and others to perhaps find themselves in some shady situations. For those of you who play it, I just hope it's more rewarding than Ingress.

Fark NotNewsletter: Another special Fark event is coming up
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2016-07-05 12:31:05 PM, edited 2016-07-05 12:36:33 PM (41 comments) | Permalink

Hopefully you all woke up today with the same number of fingers you had yesterday. It might be hard to count them, though, if you're still drunk and seeing double. Plus, if you count things on your fingers, you can't count your fingers if you can't count on your fingers to all be there.

Anyway, worry about your fingers later, and enjoy this week's Fark NotNewsletter. Check out the Farking Tip to learn about an awesome event that's coming up, the Fark Book Fair.

Farking Tip (brought to you this week by Somedude210)

It's funny. When I started the whole "Fark Writer's Thread" idea a little over a year ago (wait, really?), it was mostly to give myself a reason to keep writing, and encourage other writers to keep writing and show off their projects.

...Okay, so maybe less funny "ha ha" and more funny "uh oh."

Suffice it to say, I did not expect the amount of enthusiasm for the Fark Writer's Thread from Farkers. We have quite a few fantastic authors in our midst, and to show off the talent we have curated here on Fark, we're going to host our first ever Fark Book Fair.

Remember that Fark Craft Fair we held? It's gonna run like that. Farkers with books to sell will show off the covers of their books and give a link of where to go and buy them (such as an Amazon link). The comments will be their "storefront." Those storefront comments will remain at the top of the thread, and the non-storefront comments will proceed below them. Occasionally a mod will rotate the top comment to a different storefront to give a different author a chance at the boobies.

Not only will we have Farkers with books to sell, but we will also be showcasing the first Fark Writing Anthology: "Heart of Farkness," a collection of short stories that have been submitted by Farkers over the last few months. All proceeds from HoF will go to a children's cancer research charity (who won't let us use their name, the bastards). I cannot take credit for this portion, it was strictly the brainchild of toraque.

"So when is all this happening?" you may be asking. It will be Saturday, July 16th. It's less than two weeks away, so mark your calendars, clear off your Kindle, pry your wallet out of your pants, and prepare to delve into the Heart of Farkness (and all the other crazy, fun adventures your fellow Farkers have written up for you... except me. I haven't finished my project yet. Next year, I swear!).

Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by Unfreakable)

Looks like the epic battle was back on last week. There was a pretty good distribution on the top 10 list with scores in the 1000s, but half of the people on the list were only in the 800s. Last week's podium featured FrancoFile, who crushed it with 1035, followed by Ivo Shandor with 1014, giving them the only two slots in the 1000 Club. The top three were rounded out with Hassan Ben Sobr who got an impressive 964, even if it wasn't quite enough for the keys to the penthouse this time.

Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2016-06-27 12:15:31 PM (29 comments) | Permalink

Last week, the Enchanted Kingdom voted to leave the United Federation of Planets. They're calling this withdrawal the Brexit, because that's what English people call cookies. English people are known for clever wordplay and Cockney rhyming slang, which is seen here because the process that makes cookies rise is called leavening, and the Enchanted Kingdom is rising up and will be leaven the rest of the Europians .1

Fark NotNewsletter: Goats and strawberries
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2016-06-20 1:01:19 PM (30 comments) | Permalink

Today is the summer solstice, but since it also falls on the strawberry moon, you're supposed to feed strawberries to goats instead of sacrificing them. The goats, not the strawberries. The strawberries will be sacrificed. Anyway, it's the longest day of the year, so the strawberries have a lot of time to get their affairs in order before the moon comes out, and with it, the ravenous goats.

Fark NotNewsletter: What is a Moral Highlander?
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2016-06-06 1:11:26 PM (76 comments) | Permalink

Moral Highlander: Someone who thinks that when you're talking about the outrage du jour, it means that you don't care about whatever their pet cause is. Moral Highlanders are often seen during high-profile animal killings (Harambe the gorilla, Cecil the lion), but they also show up for terrorist attacks ("Your outrage over the Paris attacks means you don't care about Boko Haram") and activist groups (thinking that Black Lives Matter is somehow implying that other lives don't).

You can thank dugitman for coming up with this wonderful new term. Use it in good health.

Weird News Quiz Results ( brought to you by Unfreakable)

Looks like the Quizmasters had the upper hand this week with nobody in the 1000 Club and only two people managing to score above 900. Congratulations in order to rick42 who just missed quadruple digits at 996, leaving the other top scorers robertus and UseUrHeadFred in the dust with their scores of 907 and 886, respectively.

There's room for better scores--highest theoretical score is 1100--so if you think you can beat them, go get your name on the list--give last Friday's quiz a shot here: Fark Weird News Quiz - June 3.
