Fark NotNewsletter: Fark just leveled up!
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2018-04-25 10:25:02 AM, edited 2018-04-25 11:21:29 AM (68 comments) | Permalink

What would you like to have 10 million of? Legs? You'll spend a fortune in socks, but I wish you luck, my friend. Tarantulas? I hope you reach your goal, but I won't be visiting you if you do. Pterodactyls? I'll be impressed if you get just one, to be honest with you. If you're hoping for 10 million Fark threads, though, I have some really good news for you: We just posted the 10,000,000th Fark thread!
 
I know, this is pretty exciting stuff. I'm sure you'll want to go make your mark in numero diez millones, but you also might be in the mood to reminisce, as well. Okey dokey: The ability to post comments was first added to Fark on June 14, 2000. I'd show you the first Fark thread, but that was repurposed years ago and turned into the Fark Forum, which is an open-discussion thread that never closes. Many other early Fark threads are inaccessible now because the HTML in them was bananas and they would make your browser explode or barf or something. The earliest one we have that's still functional is this one about a beer label from July 1, 2001, but archive.org has part of an earlier thread mocking Oasis from August 9, 2000. The first viewable thread we could find that celebrates a milestone is Fark's 50,000th thread on August 25, 2001. Of all the submitted Fark threads, over 800,000 of them have been greenlit, and Farkers only complained about 799,987 of them.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)     
 
We had a great quiz again this week, but still no one hitting the 1000 club. In first place was the aptly named (for this week) Tax Boy with 945, followed by Seussie in second with 926, who barely edged out third place Reyito's 925. Threbus hit fourth with a nice 918, and scott4long makes the top five with 912. Congratulations, Farkers!

Fark NotNewsletter: A Special Farking Day
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2018-04-10 12:17:48 PM, edited 2018-04-10 12:35:43 PM (72 comments) | Permalink

It seems like celebratory days in honor of various animals and foods and beverages have become really popular lately, and there's no reason Fark can't hop on that bandwagon. Last week, National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, National Burrito Day, and National Beer Day all got a lot of attention. I think it's time for Fark to start a special day in honor of something dear to us. Squirrel Appreciation Day (January 21), Guinea Pig Appreciation Day (July 16), Pickle Day (November 14) and Hot Cocoa Day (December 13) are already taken, unfortunately. However, Calamari Day, Curry Day and Clamcake Day all seem to be available. Do you have other ideas, or should we go for one of these? Let's do this!

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)     
 
We had another great quiz this week, with a few thousand quiztakers vying for the top spot. Unfortunately, in the end, only one prevailed. Keyser_Soze_Death takes top honors with 936, barely nosing out der Glitzkrieg in second with 935. Tracianne nabbed third with a respectable 914, and BuckTurgidson's 898 and dougermouse's 846 round out the top five.
 
The hardest question in this week's Hard Quiz was over which school district was considering building faculty apartments on school property. Only 22% of quiztakers knew that it was Miami/Dade County schools which was proposing this solution to the high cost of housing in the area, which was causing high staff turnover. It seems that San Francisco teachers still have some unused refrigerator boxes under overpasses available.
 
The easiest question on this week's Easy Quiz was over which American gun manufacturer had declared bankruptcy. 93% of quiztakers knew that it was Remington who had filed for protections. Yes, Henry Repeating Rifles are still made today, so if you're considering a Wild West sheriff job, you can still maintain the classic image.
 
The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over what country housed an office building that tourists often mistook for the Phalloligical Museum up the street. Only 44% of quiztakers knew that an Icelandic office worker had become fed up with the dingus hunters and put up a sign on the door stating "This is NOT the penis museum". I really, really want a copy of that sign for my office door. Not sure how HR would take it (I mean, it IS true), but I'm sure people would talk about it for years.
 
The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over who nearly died from a gunshot wound after an Atlanta area homeowner mistook him for a burglar. 85% of quiztakers knew that the realty company had sent over a photographer to take interior shots, but had failed to notify the homeowner he would be coming. Luckily, the realtor also has a carpet cleaner that specializes in blood stains on speed dial.
 
Congrats to the winners of the quiz; if you didn't get a chance to take last week's, you can find it here.
 
This week's quiz will go live at 12:00 noon EST. Or you can take it now if you have TotalFark.

Fark NotNewsletter: Beware the damn dirty apes
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2018-04-03 11:44:37 AM (51 comments) | Permalink

It's now April, a month named for the God of Apes. Legend has it that the Ape God will return one April to lead the non-human apes in a war to take over the world. I'm not saying it's already starting, but a gibbon in Malaysia is responsible for hacking China's Tiangong-1 space lab, leading to its demise.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)     
 
We had another good one this past week, with great participation, but in the end, only one Farker stands alone in the 1000 club. scrumpox takes first with an excellent 1015, with carkiller taking second with 947. In third we have daddio with 911, followed by elpresidenteALO with 900 in fourth, and balko takes fifth with a respectable 854.
 
The hardest question on last week's Hard Quiz was over which retailer had partnered with handyman service Handy's for delivery, assembly, and installation, which can be purchased alongside the product both in-store and online. Only 21% of quiztakers knew that it was Walmart that had inked this deal. While Handy's will perform this service for IKEA products, IKEA has no official partnership with Handy's, and Handy's services cannot be purchased through their stores. 
 
The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over what candy you can buy in the UK to get a tan. 73% of quiztakers knew that UTanAndTone has introduced gummy bears that will darken your skin without all that annoying lying on the beach, listening to the waves, reading a book with a Greek letter in the title, and sipping something tasty with a paper umbrella in it brought to you by an attractive person who was not wearing much in the way of clothes. Who has time for that?
 
The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over the theme of a burlesque show held in Salt Lake City to benefit a woman that had lost all four limbs due to an infection. Only 43% of quiztakers knew that the show had a Harry Potter theme. I can sympathize, I'm confused enough by burlesque shows anyhow, and adding in Harry Potter does not make things more clear to me.
 
The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over what artist would be releasing her latest 3-track album on "slug genitalia colored vinyl." 85% of quiztakers knew that only Björk could be that... odd. I await the arrival of this shade in trendy SoHo designer home decorating shops.
 
Thanks again to all the quiztakers. If you missed the quiz last week, you can catch up on Fark's Weird News Quiz here

Fark NotNewsletter: CamAnal adventures
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2018-03-27 12:43:48 PM, edited 2018-03-27 12:55:44 PM (70 comments) | Permalink

I don't know about you, but if I'd known Cambridge Analytica was mining my Facebook data, I'd have done a lot of things to screw with them. I'd have posted Tony the Tiger/Captain Crunch slashfic and about a thousand videos of furries wrestling in Miracle Whip. Instead, CamAnal was able to see that I commented on photos of my uncle's ferret (not a euphemism) and spent most of 2007 trying to sell my "Battlestar Galactica" spec script where Admiral Adama and President Roslin get stuck in an elevator and use their time to plan a surprise party for Colonel Tigh.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)     
 
Last week's quiz was one of our most popular in several years, with well over 5000 people taking part. Unfortunately, no one hit the 1000 club.
 
In first place was kevinatilusawith 941, followed by Keyser_Soze_Death with 938. Tied for third were edmo and i.r.id10t, each with 936. elpresidenteALO's 927 was good enough for fourth, and finishing out the top five was Seussie with 926.
 
The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over what a couple of bungling burglars left cooking on the stove in order to cover the evidence of their break-in of a former boyfriend's house. Only 39% of quiztakers knew that the go-to flame accelerant of Florida Man is spaghetti sauce. Hey, it's Florida. What can you say? I know I've burned plenty of spaghetti sauce in my day, and I'm not even from Florida. 
 
The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over which Disney Princess single-handedly freed a Boston Police wagon from a snowdrift. 85% of quiztakers knew that a Boston drag queen would be sensible enough to dress as Elsa, it being a snowstorm and all. Insert your own "Let It Go" joke here, or just consider the fact he did wearing heels.
 
The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over which major sport is the first to sponsor an E-Tournament of its officially-licensed video game. Only 47% of quiztakers knew that it was the NHL, that bastion of new technology, who would be paying out cash, merchandise, and tickets to winners of this year's EA Sports NHL '18 tourney. No word if the glowing blue puck option will be available.
 
The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over which radio giant had declared bankruptcy. 85% of quiztakers knew that iHeartMedia had been sucked dry by vampire capitalist company Bain Capital (the same folks who bled both Kaybee Toys and now Toys R Us into bankruptcy.) Personally, looking at what Clear Channel (IHeartMedia's previous name) did to independent radio in the '90s and '00s, I think it couldn't have happened to a more deserving company. 
 
Congratulations to the winners, and if you missed the quiz last week, you can find the last week's Fark Weird News Quiz is right here. This week's Fark Weird News Quiz is right here.

Game not working? Blow in the cartridge
 
Brother and sister were 'jacking it together, and family reunions will now be more difficult

You'd think at a fancy NBA arena they'd serve Miracle Whip
 
Newer Blood Thinners Don't Raise Bleeding Risk. DO NOT COAGULATE
 
James Comey weighs film and TV offers for his memoirs. Finally a movie about an FBI director that won't need staff from both the men's and women's wardrobe departments

Fark NotNewsletter: Of horses and groundhogs
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2018-03-20 12:33:47 PM (57 comments) | Permalink

Today is the vernal equinox, which you might be disappointed to learn is not something dirty having to do with horses, but actually just means it's the first day of spring. Coincidentally, that also means that winter is over, which is bad news for "Game of Thrones" fans. It also proves that Groundhog Day is a sham and everyone's just humoring that creepy rodent every year.

The third annual Fark Fiction Anthology is now open for submissions!
 
We're looking for short, original fiction from the Fark community, up to 10K words in length, in any of the following genres: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Humor, Horror, or Suspense/mystery/thriller.
 
Our fearless panel of editors and readers is liquored up and ready to pick the best entries of 2018, which will be published on Amazon in trade paperback and Kindle e-book editions.  All proceeds will again benefit an excellent charity, although this year I didn't even bother to ask if I could use their name since they turned us down every time in the past.

Fark NotNewsletter: Beware the whole month of March

We're moving into March, which was named for Mars, the Roman god of war. The planet where green aliens live is also named after Mars. March 17th is St. Patrick's Day, when everyone is expected to wear green. A few days later on March 20th is National Alien Abductions Day, an obscure holiday that nobody knows the origins of. Clearly, it was started by Martians. This whole month is obviously one big alien conspiracy. Study it out, people.
