How super farking lame. Were is the lame tag when you need it.
 
2006-04-25 10:51:50 PM  
You lost me at "cool" and "MMORPG".
 
2006-04-25 11:12:55 PM  
Ultima Online had something similar over ten years ago.

submitter: Cool

Um, no it's not

Dudes create artificial plant life

Um, no he didn't

Cooler

Um, no it's not

It's pot plants

Um, it's actually just electrons and pixels

That grow 20 farking feet high

Um, you must have a big monitor
 
2006-04-26 12:29:10 AM  
Wow, someone in a game grew electronic "pot" and it grew really "high". Who the farking fark cares?

Inject Miracle Grow with a syringe into the base of the weed, and it'll be 15+ft. before you know it.

I've never seen this done in person, and I've never smoked the results...
 
2006-04-26 1:17:24 AM  
Wow, the mockery. I wonder how many of the Joe Cools that always show up to point and laugh in threads about gamers have ever paid money to clap for grown men in tight pants chasing after little balls. Nearly all, I'd imagine.
 
2006-04-26 2:40:12 AM  
I seriously dislike Second Life. It's the most pointless MMO ever.

Or claim to be too cool for pot but get wasted on teh alcohol all the time.

Pot is cool.
 
2006-04-26 2:44:59 AM  
Speaking from...previous knowledge... Civil_War2_Time I can clearly say that is so not proper. Definitely KILLS the plant, or makes the bud so disgusting unsmokeable... never ever ever use Miracle Grow. Ever.
/shaking head

Heroin is cooler.
 
2006-04-26 2:46:24 AM  
wtf is MMORPG?
 
2006-04-26 2:47:04 AM  
Cool: Your first nocturnal emmision.
Cooler: Smoking a blunt with your best buds.
Coolest: Smoking the Maui with your wife.

Growing cyber weed: Lame!
 
2006-04-26 2:47:44 AM  
oh look, I also created a pot plant in my computer. This one is 200 ft. high. It is next to giant, man-crushing bricks.

Nothing like the smell of napalm'd pot in the morning.

/yes, i know Apocalypse Now called and wants it's casm back

Cheeky Munky, I think you should go to the doctor SOON. Your blood tests show you have dangerously high levels of Dorkonium.
 
2006-04-26 2:49:09 AM  
OMG SO COOL! MARIJUANA PLANT IN A VIDEO GAME! SO REBEL!
 
2006-04-26 2:50:36 AM  
submitter is probably wont of those teenage dorks that has an orgasm anytime anyone mentions the number 420
 
2006-04-26 2:51:25 AM  
I think that teenagers and folks in their 20's making hilarious "inside" jokes about marijuana are about as cool and unannoying as square dancers.
 
2006-04-26 2:52:24 AM  
Personally, I think it's cool. The coolness factor is, I believe, in the future application implied in the article.

A sunflower that turns to face the sun? How about a field of them? Anybody here play Fable? Wouldn't it have been cool had you been able to, instead of buying all your food from a vendor, just reached out and pulled an apple off a tree? Ever fight in tall grass and wish you could chop it down?

And for the record, CheekyMunky, I've never paid money to watch men in tight pants chasing a little ball. I try to avoid men who would willingly shower and play grabass with any man.

/I swear I don't live in a basement!

brokeback fountain

I'd try to stuff some of that in my helmet!

/hope they didn't search
 
2006-04-26 2:54:11 AM  
Meh. Miracle Gro is for plastic plants grown by waspy women in Jersey. Real men use fish.
 
2006-04-26 2:55:57 AM  
Say what where who in the why now?? Whacking off to chicks in video games is ghey, but not getting high off a fake plant is cool? Seems kinda double-standardy to me.
 
2006-04-26 2:56:05 AM  
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Second Life...brain..melting...fun..melting...must...play...a..real...game..
 
2006-04-26 2:58:26 AM  
Second Life is not an MMORPG. You don't Level, kill NPC and loot them, and go on quests. It's more like build stuff, use scripts on the oject, buy and/or sell stuff, and mingle. It's an MMOUP. Massive multi online utiliy program.

BTW MMORPG mean Massive Multi online role playing game. Does that answer your question Wildsilverfox?
 
2006-04-26 2:58:32 AM  
Meh, fish is for wimpy dudes named Gharlans. Real men eat fish guts then squat over their crop and let loose the splatter after digestion has done the job.

tarvuz:
since you chose to pick on me:

How's that whole 'getting laid' thing working out for you, bro ?

/difficulty: rosie and frigidiares don't count
 
2006-04-26 2:59:51 AM  
Your definition of 'cool' and mine are miles apart, Smitty.
 
2006-04-26 3:03:02 AM  
Tarvuz, I find it highly ironic that you accuse Cheeky Munky of being a dork yet you come up with words like Dorkonium.

/have to defend fellow dorks
 
2006-04-26 3:04:02 AM  
So, this is Fark at 3 a.m. Amazing.

Guys, if you thought this web site was cool, I saw this other one where they got a whole huge list of video game still shots where it looks like two of the characters are farking. Some of them are even animated. God, it's so freaking awesome.
 
2006-04-26 3:04:36 AM  
Can the submitter tell me why this is cool, or even worthy of mention? How much of a loser do I need to be before I can find this "cool".

/ Cheech and Chong called, looking to score some MMORPG. They heard its good shiat.
 
2006-04-26 3:15:10 AM  
Ah, Second Life. The 3D MySpace.
 
2006-04-26 3:18:21 AM  
The plant isn't the cool part, the cool part is that they programmed the rather basic engine of Second Life to have randomized, unique plants that actually grow over time, rather than being content to have a static object.

/Agrees with above, Second Life is not an MMORPG, and it's seriously lacking in a point
 
2006-04-26 3:18:59 AM  
Folks who smoke pot are just about as dumb as those who smoke cigarettes. You can't tell me that inhaling all that smoke is healthy for your lungs. And where's the fun in acting like a complete moron? Have you ever been sober around people who are stoned off their minds or drunk out of their gourd? They're not fun to be around. Especially when the puking starts.
 
2006-04-26 3:24:56 AM  
Chibisuke

I don't use drugs, but almost all my friends do smoke pot. I barely notice a difference in their behavior. Puking never occurs, so all the furniture is safe. Also, pot can also be eaten, which negates any of that unhealthy carbon monoxide stuff.

Heh, but the looks on their faces it looks like they already blazed up.
 
2006-04-26 3:26:44 AM  
so can you smoke it?
 
2006-04-26 3:30:14 AM  
I love when writers use abbreviations and initials for obscure things when there's no freakin' way for people to know what the hell they're talking about without outside information. Also, just based on the screenshots, is it supposed to be a really gay online game? (I don't mean lame. I mean homosexual.)

KeeperX sez: Ah, Second Life. The 3D MySpace.

Concise and probably true; brilliance.

Hello! And welcome to the 21st century! Enjoy your stay!

1. It is just a game.
2. I give repspect to trying to model a plants growth, regardless of which plant it is.
3. Pot plants can grow well over 20 feet high, nobody ever lets it happen because it is impractical to hide and they tend to have a lower concentration of TCH and higher concentration of CBD.
4. It is just a game!
 
2006-04-26 3:34:42 AM  
It is a lot better than the real-life growing puddle of piss and $hit water in my bath room, caused by some ignorant plumber 4 stories above me.

Brokeback- I wasn't even talking about you...and my ability to have sex with hot women has never been a problem. I am also from Seattle and I will come and bang some hot chick in front of you for proof. But I am currently working overseas training wimpy pussy's like the two guys in your photo.

Breninllwyd - Well I could have used Nerderite..but that would have given me away.
 
2006-04-26 3:36:44 AM  
moxie17 - I have seen a crop of plants that were probably about 15 feet high. I was amazed that got that big.

I used to think like that, then I pulled the stick out of my ass.

You never see them that big, because it is pointless to grow it that high unless you just wanna take a cool picture. Most people that grow it are growing to smoke it. They can grow upwards of 35 ft. Given they have the right conditions... not that I have seen that personally or done so myself... wait someone's ringing the door buzzer... be right back.

Anyone who thinks this is cool must get stoned alot.
