That is an interesting social experiment but still kind of a dick thing to do.

harleyquinnical: That is an interesting social experiment but still kind of a dick thing to do.


The experiment proved (I suppose) that people are empathetic to people who are suffering emotional distress (or pretending to be.)

There's no academic value here, that guy is just an asshole

So an asshole pulling an asshole move to make himself feel good about himself?  Yep.  Asshole.

"The steak? Elite. The price? Elite. The faint idea I might be in Australia? Elite," Stephen said.

I get the distinct feeling that Stephen doesn't know the definition of "elite"...

He's kinda a cute guy. Too bad he's a disgusting asocial troll who's actually proud of that fact.
 
2019-02-16 02:32:14 PM  
It's amazing the number of assholes who feel the need to advertise that to the world.

Life hack!

Liar, thief, and an attention whore!
That's a three-fer

Outback elite? Hahahaha! No rules, just crap food.

It's his own personal 'fetch'.

Yup, dick move in every way.Not at all less dickish even if he gave a little money to charity and left a totally inadequate tip. Aside from waitpersons' time and taking up a table for far too long, he played on peoples' sympathies just for a laugh. That's about as dickish as it gets.
 
2019-02-16 03:30:28 PM  
Not only is he a liar but he donates money to the ACLU.
 
2019-02-16 03:30:39 PM  
Also, after each tweet the article started again with just a couple of paragraphs added. Rinse, repeat.

But then pretend you haz a sad, and get him to pick up the tab
 
2019-02-16 03:31:34 PM  
I can't imagine why he's not in a relationship.

This man needs a hobby. An absorbing, solitary, stay-at-home hobby.

I like how the article repeated itself five times.

I like how the article repeated itself five times in a row.

Hanging around on Fark.com is popular with antisocial assholes.  Maybe he could true that.

try, not true.
 
2019-02-16 03:35:36 PM  
Am I wrong for kinda hoping that someday this asshat gets stood up for real?

That's dangerous!  The curb weight of an Outback is about a thousand pounds more than the towing capacity of an Outback.

Yeah, mate. Ive been to Australia and thats not Australia.
My Australian friend got a kick out of going there though.

Typical chain restaurant, mediocre more than elite would be my take.

Good point. It's certainly worked for me ...
 
2019-02-16 03:45:30 PM  
It's not even original.  Someone here on FARK was going over this scenario recently.

Bite your tongue! Outback is way better than Sizzler. Everyone of them I've been to,anyway. But Texas Roadhouse is the best of them all.Why no, I never have been to a michelin rated restaurant, how do you know?

Thanks for validating my sanity.

CSB: I took a Swedish co-ed out to eat for VD, and she wanted to go to a nice Italian place. When we got there, there was a line out the door and it was pouring rain.

She told me to pick a place, so we went to Outback, where my buddy waited tables. So we pull up, and she points out that there's a bigger line out the door.

Long story short, it was like that scene out of Goodfellas. They brought us a table, apps, and drinks. We got engaged a year later.

Yeah, the whole Australian theme is pretty cheesey and to call them elite is laughable, but they actually cook a decent steak.  It's comparable to any of the other steak houses in the same price range.

For 12 bucks, I can buy and cook a 2 pound tbone with a better crust than what outback can produce.

once broke my wrist, had it in a sling. people were really nice when i had difficulty in the grocery line or whatever. it was a learning experience.

Nope...We have Outbacks here and their commercials play on TV all the time, but I've never heard that slogan before.

A 2-pound T-bone for $12?  Does it still have the marks where the jockey was whipping it?

But you miss out on the Bloomin' Onions and Fosters Beer.

Like traditional outback cuisine.

And frankly, many people can't cook worth a shiat anyways.

$6/lb? That sounds like some real quality meat you have there.
