Tacoby Bellisbury: Goodfella: Now that this has been uncovered, I realize that that must have been another time where he accidentally posted as whidbey and not as skookum on accident, but that nobody caught it.

perhaps he was test-trolling. Ibet that in the end he may have wanted to get caught. Got bored with the character and 'killed' him off

Darkridr: TPS Reports: I just came to point out that dragging fishing lines in a boat is called "trawling", not "trolling".

Trolling Motor

From Websters 1913 dictionary:
\Troll\, v. i.
1. To roll; to run about; to move around; as, to troll in a
coach and six.

2. To move rapidly; to wag. --F. Beaumont.

3. To take part in trolling a song.

4. To fish with a rod whose line runs on a reel; also, to
fish by drawing the hook through the water.

Their young men . . . trolled along the brooks that
abounded in fish. --Bancroft.


See, I always thought it was a misspelling of this (new window) that just sort of took off. You know, trawling around in hopes that something bites the lines you've cast out... anyway.

"Hi America, I'm Joe Biden...Democratic candidate for president...I mean, Vice President. And in a couple of days I'm going to be debating one of the toughest opponents I've yet to meet. No, this is no lipsticked pig...that would be insensitive. However, if you, the public don't feel that I won the debate, it will look as if I, a prominent and articulate and well educated and experienced politician will have lost to an inexperienced farm yard animal that looks good in high heels. And that is why my administration...I mean Barack Obama's administration, is urging you to call Reuters and the AP, CNN and MSNBC and Fox News today, to cast your vote...er make you opinion known that I won the debate that we haven't yet had. I remember a time when Richard Nixon won a debate against noted debater Abraham Lincoln in 1905. Well, he would have won except Richard Nixon had a five o'clock shadow and Lincoln wore a full beard. You see, on the early television sets, a full beard looked better in HD than a half-shaven lurching and sweating man. I guess what I'm saying, America, is that I'm man enough to ask you to declare a winner before the debate...because if for some reason she does beat me, I'll have to go all Lieberman and leave the Democrat party in disgrace. I don't think I want that anymore than you do. Do you? Think that I mean."

If you've spent time in-thread with another farker, you share something...a bond that others can't know. There is a brotherhood of the flamewar that few know, but all who do cherish.

That bike would actually be pretty cool if the very top wheels actually drove the bottom wheels, using the intermediate wheels as "gears". (Although, pedaling the "top" bike forward would make the whole contraption move *backwards*).

I was disappointed when I noticed that the pedals are directly connected to the bottom bike. I guess *all* the wheels still turn when he rides it, so it's at least a *little* cool.

Wow. That's a great picture of the seam of Bush's jacket and the line of his shoulderblade. Why don't you pull out that other, more real-looking wire picture? Because this one shows a f*cking jacket, and nothing more.

Copypasta from one of my posts in another thread:

Will she do a little better than some expect? Probably. Will she "hold her own" against Joe Biden if the playing field is level? Not on your farking life. The most she can hope for is not to piss him off to the point where he'll grind her into the dust, which I don't think is really his goal, anyway.

I think his strategy is gonna be to give her as much rope as possible before slipping the noose over her head. There are ways to be absolutely devastating without rubbing your opponent's nose in it, and Biden knows every one of them like the back of his hand.

Palin's only hope is Ifill. Ifill knows exactly what I've said above, and she may decide to stick it to Biden because of it; to handicap him. She almost certainly won't go "soft" on Palin, but I could see her really doing everything she could come up with to make the environment look "fair" by tripping up and sticking it to Biden any time the opportunity presented itself.
 
2008-10-01 12:01:02 AM  
Biden's not going to kick her ass or get toney or bloviate, he's going to stay on topic, be concise, and feed her rope until she's all yanged up in her own incomeptence and then he's going to smile, thank the media and the American people and go to bed.

Exactly. The most he's gonna do unless he loses his temper (which is really doubtful; this is not his first trip to the prom), offensively, is slip in a one-liner or two if she gets aggressive in order to yank the rug out from under her.

It'll all be on-topic, it'll be respectful, and it'll make her look like a first-year underclassman debating a senior professor.

Code_Archeologist: TheYeti: WHO HAS THE DRINKING GAME RULES?

Drink every time Sarah says the following phrases:
"maverick"
"you know"
"like"
"I'll have to get back to you"

If she starts talking about the "Bridge to Nowhere", "Selling a Private Jet on Ebay", or "Proximity of Russia" chug for as long as she rambles on about these things.


Everyone, don't attempt this. Only the most seasoned drinkers could handle this game.

You're gonna kill someone!

Basically, expectations are so low for her that as long as she doesn't piss her pants (visibly) she'll be seen as doing better than expected.

You can be sure that she's been given no more than 5 talking points, and that she WILL NOT stray from them:
1. She no-likey abortion
2. She's full of fresh new ideas (such as not liking abortion)
3. "Blah blah blah - I know because I'm a woman/mother"
4. John McCain is a mavrick
5. She gets things done (things like not having an abortion)

No farking way. I saw his speech for VP. He totally upstaged Obama. This is his chance to prove to everyone he should be president.

He doesn't need to land any punches, but he'll go for a knock-out anyway.

I have drawn hundreds of naked people. Thousands of clothed people. That is the line of his jacket, the horizontal pull of the fabric between shouderblade points, and the line of the edge of his right shoulderblade.

I'm offering you my expert opinion here (which on Fark is laughable, but this time, I'm serious). Take it or leave it.

If it were a wire, you probably wouldn't see it anyway.
 
2008-10-01 1:38:12 AM  
Well, ok.

That's fair.

I'm an audio engineer and I've done about 3,400 successful shows from rock to comedy to theatre and, yeah, that's plausible but that's what a wire looks going to a receiver for in ears.

And yeah, there's osteotransduction devices are certainly quite feasible. They wouldn't sound sound so hot, though, if there's a noise floor. I'm reading what you're stating, though and I don't dismiss it out of hand.

Goodfella: PAGING ANONYMOUS, PAGING ANONYMOUNS, if you're in the greater St. Louis area, we need you to use your superskills to jam/shennanigize radio signals that would be used for an earpiece during the debate.

Someone should head on over to 4chan to suggest this and unleash those industrious fellows for this task. More productive than another raid on Habbo.

I could see them doing that and during the debate, she'd obliviously say, "hey St Louis,"


"Go fark yourselves"


Much simpler and harder to detect would be a poor-man's spark-gap transmitter. Disconnect a spark wire on your car's engine, run it over the radiator and have it arc against the frame right behind the front grille. If you've got a V-8 the car will still run, just rough.

Have a few suitably modified cars idling in the parking lot and you'll more or less static-out the entire radio spectrum for blocks.

Of course, aside from the obvious FCC fines you'd face if you got caught you'd also be blocking legitimate radio such as emergency services, and so I would strongly recommend that no one be bozo enough to try it. But it would be possible, I'm fairly certain.

Don't do it.

Will you please let us know when it's cool to do it to a black candidate?

Oh, wait, I think I know already, it will be fine when the black candidate isn't a liberal hypocrite. At that point, all of the racism, bigotry and stereotypes will be just fine.

Wow......just wow.........is America really this stupid or is it just the left?

She's a huge political success with a nice family and is pretty damn consistent for a politician. I mean, I know Fark has become a giant liberal circle-jerk since I started Farking back in Y2K, but you guys are seriously out doing yourselves on this one.

Or just broadcast feedback intermittently across the channel until she has to rip the damn thing out of her ear. That would be a classic TV moment that would survive for decades.


Um, actually, there WILL be people in the room with wireless receivers who will be pissed off if some asshat smuggles in a wireless jammer or any of the other tom-foolery you guys have been suggesting. They're called The Secret Service. And they will be armed.

//Also remember a rumor that at least some SS agents have had bone implants so they can tie into the SS net without having to wear those ear-pieces which mark them out. Down-side of that of course is that anyone so equipped could be disabled by this sabotage as well,

As to the meat of so many Lib's assumption re: Governor Palin being "wired", it just goes to show that they are totally prepared to dismiss any reality that conflicts with their pre-conceived biases and bigotry by appeal to conspiracy theory. Which is pretty much the current definition of modern Liberalism, btw.

Let's see, they've changed the debate rules so that the two VP candidates can only speak in soundbytes rather than actually answering the questions and...well, that's all there is to say about that, honestly. Even her own party doesn't trust her not to say something incredibly stupid.

Huh.
I kinda thought the (D)s might have some input as well.
Or perhaps the scheduled "neutral" debate moderator, you know, the lady with a broken leg in a
leg-cast who just put out a glowing book all about how Obama has transformed American politics for the better.

Um, yes, and it's not normally a shooting-offense to fly a plane off course either.
Try piloting your personal Cesna 100 feet over the White House or Capitol Building though and see how peaceful the immediate paranoid response is, though.
Similarly, taking down the SS net the agents use to coordinate their protective details is not something a SS agent is going to assume must be only a harmless prank, either.

Ignorant if I dis a woman who thinks the earth is only 6000 years old and can't answer interview questions? I'm ignorant but she's the beauty queen? I'm petty because she's got no experience and I think that the fact that she just got her passport last year is pathetic? Especially for a politician who will be second in line to run this country?

Give me a f*cking break. You like her face and her tits. I know, because that's all this vapid woman has got to her advantage. You're the shallow one, not me.

There are haters no matter what. Mother Theresa, even had her share.

To paraphrase robin williams(poorly): "you know theres a guy in a bar somewhere going, 'I knew Ghandi, he was a prick.'"

Atleast they are hating on something that legitimately deserves it.
