However, other people are questioning how Curtis could possibly be a time traveler (and justifiably so).

And those idiots must be from Reddit.

Making it to Yahoo must be liking making it to daytime TV or possibly a large print publication like Reader's Digest. Now your Aunts and grandparents know about it.

If he were a real time traveller, I would have a lot of questions myself. Having lived in several different centuries (simulataneously because as the science fiction writer said, the future does not arrive evenly, even in the same place), time travel is relevant to my interests.

As is getting the Hell out of this dark time line.

Oh, so the guy coming out of rehab is a member of the band "One Direction".

I wasn't clear on whether it was a musical band or a major political party like the Repugnants and the Demon Rats.

Well, that answers all my questions for now.

Pretty soon he'll be features on Lycos, or if we're extra lucky? Alta Vista!

Meh. Wake me when someone traveling from a mirror universe where Hillary Clinton is president and is successfully overseeing the end of Covid-19 makes the news.

Sorry, as someone from that mirror universe, Hillary Clinton was impeached and removed from office after 12 people died from COVID-19. President Kaine is now seriously on the fence about issuing Hillary Clinton a pardon, because he doesn't want to seem too partisan about it.

Drew, thanks for not Tweeting about that thing in 2027.

Folks deserve to live with a *little* hope until then.

"I run a news aggregation website and reading everything keeps me a step ahead "

So Drew is basically Ozymandius from The Watchmen?

/ when can we expect the alien squid creature attack?

For those who don't know, the skillful predictions are based on research and science in It's Not News, It's Fark still available...

What are they going to say about him? What? Are they going to say he was a kind man? He was a wise man? He had plans? He had wisdom? Bullshiat, man!

So this made it to yahoo!life which in an earlier era would have been called the woman's pages and corresponds to daytime TV,

What TikTok do they choose to highlight? One by peachesfatcoochie.

I guess they think proper ladies can't recognize dirty words when there are no spaces between them.

Drew is absolutely hell bent on driving this joke straight into the ground, isn't he?

Yah but Drew's time travels always end up a day late. Just like I see things on fark the day after I see them on reddit.

"Soo when it get back better cause." Jesus fark, what has happened to the English language. Yeah, I know it evolves. But it isn't supposed to be murdered and desecrated in a single generation.

I, for one, absolutely detest jokes on Fark being driven into the ground. Repeating the same thing over and over again for cheap laughs sickens me to my very core.

Lucky dog, I got something like $12.99, 2 24oz Steel Reserves, and about a half an ounce of meth, I mean weed weed I mean weed, to kick in if I can go with.

Drew.. with great power comes great responsibility. Tell the covidiots that Trump won't win the election because too many of his supporters die before the election. Maybe that will get them to wear masks.

FTA: "Though Curtis' tweet was presumably a joke."
Presumably?!???

Also FTA : "Even if Curtis' claim that he is a time traveler is a joke (and it most likely is) (...)"
Most likely?!??

Well. No wonder we're f*cked so bad.

"a Twitter user named Drew Curtis" - wow Drew, you've really made it now
 
2020-06-30 1:25:02 AM  
Curtis, who is the founder of news aggregation site Fark.com, tweeted on Dec. 31, 2015, that he was "a time traveler from 2020." In his post, he also told people to enjoy 2016, since that year was "as good as it gets for [a while]."
We found literally the only tool you need to make delicious grilled food in the safety of your own home this summer.
Though Curtis' tweet was presumably a joke, it has gained traction in recent months due to the fact that, well, the world is in shambles. On May 1, he recirculated his original message, noting that it "aged well," and has so far received more than 675,000 likes.

I misremembered it. MySpace was for him (and earlier in the video). He made an HTML home page for his dog:
"Weird Al" Yankovic - White & Nerdy (Official Music Video)
Youtube N9qYF9DZPdw
Do watch the whole thing. This was basically my theme song.

/Freeze-frame on the MySpace page, Trivial Pursuits card, HTML pages, etc. Lots of fun Easter eggs.
