Bumjube: Would that be the new limited edition Tim Tam White that you're enjoying?
2002-02-26 05:39:33 PM  
no, no keep it going, i'm enjoying the battle that is raging within the global organism's psyche. what to do, what to do?
2002-02-26 05:40:48 PM  
Yes, but has there been a new strong bad email???
2002-02-26 05:41:58 PM  

Double Choc at the moment, but I do have a packet of white ones in the freezer. Yummy...

Ooh, let's fight extremism with extremism... that ought to work.

You guys, the federal government is the biggest terrorist group of all. Think about Iran-Contra, the contras in South America, giving polio infested blankets to the Native Americans, and introducing crack cocaine to the ghettos. The longer you farks sit back and kiss the ass of the government that oppresses you, the less time you're gonna have to run when they come after you next. dumbshiats.

Arguing on Fark isbanging your head against a wall. I think a bunch of repressed geeks find their warrior/ultra-macho-alter-ego on this site. And I am not applying that statement to anyone w/ a different opinion...I apply it to people completely willing to engage in meaningful debate and keep pounding out assine blanket statments.

"...hybridized to the point of not even resembling the origin species."

Genetic engineering is radically different than selecting the biggest and best plants of each successive crop. When have the genes from a flounder ever found their way into an ear of corn? And at incredibly large scales?

"There are more people alive today than have ever lived. This is due to increased yield per acre, whether it be animal, vegetable, or grain. Someone knows what they're doing."

Yeah...we know what we're doing. Just like the guy that has the brand new shiny boat, 3 car garage, new car, and frequent vacations must know what he's doing... You don't see the huge debt he's aquired.

The increase in yields over the past century are largely based on unsound and unsustainable farming practices that are using up aquifers at a much much faster rate than their recharge rates, and top-soil is being lost much much faster than it's being replaced.

Yo, did anybody see Fear Factor last night. They were eating blended pig brains, bile, rooster nuts, etc. that was farkin gross.

Phix-IT.....Bill Maher aint no celebrity, he a washed up comedian
2002-02-26 05:54:09 PM  
Blue Owl- Thanks for being you. I'm out of here.
2002-02-26 05:54:22 PM  
Bill Maher is funnier than you are, and he knows what he's talking about. It's not easy being a political humorist/satirist in a world full of idiots. He's funny as hell and no one gets it.

duh, let's watch someone eat pig brains, duh (drools)

"'These are hardened criminals,' Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Scott McInnis, R-Colo., said. 'They are dangerous, they are well-funded, they are savvy, sophisticated and stealthy, and if their violence continues to escalate, it is only a matter of time before their parade of terror results in a lost human life.'"

dude, I've worked with those environmental farks, they're a bunch of lazy potheads, most of them are in it for the easy hippie pussy. Believe me, I lived that lie for 3 weeks. Well funded and organized they are not.
2002-02-26 05:57:28 PM  
Maher stopped being funny in the 80's. Oh, he's soooo politically incorrect too.
2002-02-26 05:57:43 PM  
Bill Maher likes the sound of his own voice.
2002-02-26 05:58:24 PM  
I think it's natural or at least should be natural for people to feel like they're helping someone or something in need of being helped.
However, think a little more of what you are supposed to be or coerced into helping.
During the whole 9/11 thing we had a big blood drive at work and I was one of the few who didn't give, and people gave me shiat about it. My reasoning was, why spend the time giving my common blood type when it would never see the intended target and be destroyed after sitting around for awhile. There are 12 million much closer New Yorkers doing the same thing.

I could have donated and walked around with my head held high because I helped even though deep down inside I know I didn't.
I could also think critically and offer my computer skills instead.

The point is that environmental issues are real. The problem is there are to many white and black view points. Too many people doing things in an emotional knee-jerk reaction that doesn't help at all, but they feel like they are helping.
It's not about the quickest way to do things, it's about the most informed way to do things.
Sadly enough, it also has a lot to do with the cost to do these things.
Or something.
2002-02-26 05:59:09 PM  
shudders... can't argue with stupidity... but must keep going... must my life be this living hell? Hey wasn't there a thread the other day where most of you people knocked McDonalds? Now you're knocking PETA? Make up your mind already!
2002-02-26 05:59:22 PM  
Skettios: Agreed. Bill Maher is the funniest political humorist on the air, and one of the only political show hosts who isn't completely full of shiat.
2002-02-26 05:59:38 PM  
dude, I've worked with those environmental farks, they're a bunch of lazy potheads, most of them are in it for the easy hippie pussy. Believe me, I lived that lie for 3 weeks.

Sounds kinda... idyllic....
2002-02-26 06:00:54 PM  
"Yo, did anybody see Fear Factor last night. They were eating blended pig brains, bile, rooster nuts, etc. that was farkin gross." Yeah? I grew up eating pig brains and bull balls and they're actually really good. Don't knock'em unless you've tried them because you don't know what you're talking about. The bile sounds interesting although I've never had it but have read the Indians used to use bison bile as a relish on raw and cooked meat.

Liza? Don't expect any rational discussion at Fark. It happens only rarely and never on most topics. This is a site for spewing BS instead of logic. Kind of like someone yelling at someone else who doesn't speak the language... they think they'll be understood if they get louder and more obnoxious.
2002-02-26 06:02:02 PM  
Sillymofo if you want well funded and well organized take a look at Operation rescue and their fringe branch Defensive Action. They fund vandals and arsonists to damage or destroy abortion clinics. They also offer scads of money for the legal defense of wackos who go out and bust a cap in the ass of abortion clinic personell. Why isn't your

not rallying the troops to put this group of terrorists in jail and end their reign of murder and fear?
2002-02-26 06:02:24 PM  
MaxLoad wins, we can all stop arguing now. seriously good point. The Red Cross has admitted that they had to get rid of a lot of blood. Everyone wanted to give blood, because it's easier to do that than to write a check. Americans always prefer the vein to the wallet. That's why you know that PETA is not helping the ALF or ELF. Because no one is giving PETA enough cash to do whatever they want. Is this clear to anyone now? The government is lying to you to push their own fricking agenda. How long are they gonna ride this 9-11 thing, and who the fark are they helping anyway?
2002-02-26 06:03:51 PM  
WarmBeer/Skettios: You're both wrong. Jon Stewart is THE funniest political humorist on air. Hands down. His little reporter friends on the Daily Show aren't too shabby either.
2002-02-26 06:04:33 PM  
My favorite PETA moment was when they dressed deer in the orange vests during hunting season, resulting in easy to hunt deer.

Anyone else have a favorite PETA moment?
2002-02-26 06:04:38 PM  
Max Load: I had the same thing happen to me...a friend of mine was all high and mighty about waiting in line for hours to give blood for the 9/11 victims. I told him it was pointless. He told me I was heartless and irresponsible. Then a few weeks later, he realized what a dumbass he was after all. Wasted his time and the Red Cross's money.
2002-02-26 06:05:15 PM  
Jynkst: It was dude, but I was smoking so much weed, I couldn't knock on a door and beg for money without laughing or in some cases getting so paranoid I'd sit on the corner and not want to talk to anyone. Still the beer parties, and the hippie babes were top notch.

I just want to say thank you to all the people in Queen Anne district in Seattle who didn't give me money, but instead offered a friendly cigarette or beer, and asked me what I wanted to do with my life.
2002-02-26 06:05:51 PM  
warm beer:
Bill Maher is an idiot.
2002-02-26 06:07:12 PM  
Urbn: Jon Stewart is good, too, but I dunno if he really is a political humorist. The Daily Show coverage of the election and the Florida recount was classic, though. If they'd throw it all on DVD I'd buy it in a second.
2002-02-26 06:07:55 PM  
skettios is a peta freak.
peta has WAY too much money.
2002-02-26 06:08:43 PM  
Does anyone have a caps lock key I can shove up Daphamer's ass?
2002-02-26 06:09:38 PM  
Stewart is the furthest farking thing from funny. That show hasn't been funny since Craig Kilborn left it. Stewart is just another MTV generated mediocrity.
2002-02-26 06:10:24 PM  
ORGY get fuc.ked. Or maybe that's the problem. Anyone who is remotely into girls knows that it pays to be sensitive at times. That means taking an interest in environmental issues (yes, they also affect you), being nice to animals (seriously dude, dogs are farking cool), and listening to their arguments of women's liberation while trying to take their pants off. Now make fun of me again, and prove what I already know, you've never been laid in your life.
2002-02-26 06:11:31 PM  
The I feel your pain -- let me feel your tits approach...very good.
2002-02-26 06:11:52 PM  
Oh, and in case anyone cares, I do think PETA has made the whole movement a joke with their childish vandalism stunts, but I do however think it is very important that we have a group looking out for the rights of animals. Just not PETA.
2002-02-26 06:14:09 PM  
Skettios: "and listening to their arguments of women's liberation while trying to take their pants off"

...cleaning coffee off the keyboard...
2002-02-26 06:17:42 PM  
didn't get internet yesterday..not on aol.. have been on fark over a year and have been online almost 10..say what you want i dont give a shiat..like the whole problem that is this thread you have your opinions I have mine. You dont give two shiats what my opinion is, therefore I dont give two shiats what yours is. But I don't go and try to shove my opinions in someone's face and tell them it's the "only" way. I respect the rights of anyone, even you Dr. Bengay, to have their own opinions and lead their lives the way they see fit. If you dont like what I have to say or what my opinion is tough shiat. It's my opinion to have.


The best argument almost anyone can muster here on Fark is the perpetual open your eyes open your eyes open your eyes.. For shiat's sake people need to shut up with the open your eyes. You want to inform someone about something then inform them. Dont insult them, don't say you don't know shiat about shiat.. Just tell em staight this is how it is..But when you start telling people to open their eyes when comments you yourself are making are 1) biased, and 2)not fully informed on both sides of the story..Then I as well as plenty of other people are gonna get pissed.. Human nature.

Dr. Bengay:

We already have Rei and Harmonia, we dont need another asshole jumping at everyone because of their spelling or over capitalization. Your kind just likes to egg people on. You say shiat like I must have only been online for a day, but yet you act like your a frikken 12 yr old. And as far as your repeatedly saying I'm acting like what I say is more important then everyone else's. 1) At least I have some even semi intelligent things to say, instead of putting down people left and right.. 2) Nothing I say is important. Nothing you say is importnt. Nothing anyone here says is important. It's actions that matter. And unless anyoneof you can tell me that in your life not a single living thing has been harmed as a direct result of something you did, then your words mean jack.

In the end, nothing we say or do matters, people are stupid.. As evidenced by every last one of us reading fark right now, me included. We are an over-zealous, over-eager corrupt, leeching festering pile of shiat of a race. For each of the amazing things we've accomplished there are at least 20 shiatty shiatty things of equal magnitude. We are inevitably going to destroy ourselves one way or another.

So Liza and Dr. Bengay you can say whatever you want to me at this point, I'm still just gonna sit back, smoke my nice bowl, and laugh at your stupidity as well as my own and everyone else here. Peta can complain about lab testing all they want..But we are the real lab rats running around our little mazes, and god willing, almost every last one o ya will get the cancer.

"Show coverage of the election and the Florida recount was classic, though. If they'd throw it all on DVD I'd buy it in a second."

I'd love the PI coverage of the Republican National Convention in 1996 on DvD. They sent Chris Rock to New Hampshire as a correspondant. Some quotes from him:

"It's like the reverse of Cheers here. Nobody knows my name, and nobody's glad I came."

"Once again, it's very hard for me to find hair care products around here."

Ranma_X: My favorite PETA moment was when they dressed deer in the orange vests during hunting season, resulting in easy to hunt deer.

Anyone else have a favorite PETA moment?

Umm, maybe one that actually happened? As opposed to one that didn't?
2002-02-26 06:25:22 PM  
Yeah Henchman, nothing is quite as funny as watching Chris Rock surrounded by a bunch of up-tight white men.
2002-02-26 06:26:55 PM  
Okay one more thing.

Has anyone seen the USA Today, and the pro-drug ad in it. I was speechless. It's a full page ad and it's making fun of our drug czar, I"m on my way out right now to buy 10 copies.

If god didn't want us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them out of meat.
2002-02-26 06:36:24 PM  
It's really uplifting to see the system in action working for the average american instead of extremists. Thank you Government. Good day farkers.
2002-02-26 06:39:51 PM  
In other news...anyone linked the christian right to abortion bombings yet?
2002-02-26 06:42:29 PM  

If you are going to compare Dr. Benway to Rei and Haromonia (and I might add that you shouldn't say things you can't take back), you really shouldn't do it in a post which can only be called Rei-esque or Haromonia-like in length.

Just pointing out the obvious.
2002-02-26 06:45:19 PM  
I am a vegetarian simply because I do not like the taste of animals, and I would gladly serve huge slabs of raw, bloody meat at a BBQ if it might I could shock and horrify one of those crazy PETA vegetarians.

I can't tell you how many times I've mentioned to someone that I don't eat meat just to have them say, "Oh, my friend so and so is also a vegetarian. He/She is in PETA; I think you two would really get along."
