I thought they were neutral.

See now snow is fun when you get to throw it, but when you have to shovel it, and when there's 4 inches of it on the ground and it takes you half an hour like I just did, it SUCKS.

The intrepid participants included reigning Miss Switzerland, Nadine Vinzens.

slightly clever use of the "cool" tag.

I hear france surrendered.

"Bah, the Swiss don't know anything about snowjobs."

What it may have looked like...

"The record for the biggest overall snowball fight is held by Scotland, according to Swiss ski lift official, Erwin Senn."

Ok... So, the guy's a liftie... who's also an authority on snowball fights? This is credible information?

Paranoidandroid beat me to it.

Has anyone else received that highly annoying penguin/snowball fight 02-03 email forward? I HATE FREAKING FORWARDS!

Look, I come to Fark to waste time instead of working. As much time as possible. That's difficult to do with an article that takes 10 seconds to read and has no pictures to look at.

Get it together here, people.
2003-01-19 10:03:38 PM  
hey JaBbErWoCkY_BNdErSnAtCh...where can you play that???

kinda fun, i played it like 2 years ago...
2003-01-19 10:03:41 PM  
Fun with snowballs. One of the many wonderful, artistic Flash games from Ferry Halim. ferryhalim.com/orsinal
2003-01-19 10:04:51 PM  
Just rub one out to each article, regardless of subject. That will easily double the time wasted to 20 seconds or so.

do a search for Snowcraft

or try here http://www.nny.com/snowcraft/snowcraft.htm

The Guiness Book of World Records is just plain stupid.

Who gives a rat's ass who holds the record for longest fingernals, the biggest ball of bungole lint, the smelliest fumunda cheese, or how many people threw snowballs at one another?

2,473. It seems a bit uneven.
2003-01-19 10:10:15 PM  
The kittens are safe...for now.
2003-01-19 10:11:13 PM  
cool game, but it freezes at level 2 (at least for me)
2003-01-19 10:12:05 PM  
2003-01-19 10:14:30 PM  
heh..at least u can play it...im using one of my college's computers and so i cant d/l shockwave to play it
2003-01-19 10:16:09 PM  
Snow, what's that? The only Snow that I know of, is that cat who did that song Informer. Seriously, Living in the Houston area, I have seen snow maybe once in my life. And that was when i traveled to IDAHO for a winter.
2003-01-19 10:16:13 PM  
First a swiss pilot spies on Air Force 1, now this. I seriously think we need to send arms inspectors to Switzerland.

hey dont worry...i havent really seen snow at all this year...and im in canada,eh (YAY for unseasonable warmth...on the other hand there will be no run off and so we wont even be able to turn on the taps cause of a lack of water...ah well...)
2003-01-19 10:25:37 PM  
watch out, if you threaten the swiss they'll put their powerful navy on to you.
2003-01-19 10:38:37 PM  
i think next year they should be able to use swiss army knives...throw those instead of snowballs..hell! do that during the summer..now THATS a world record i would pay attention to
2003-01-19 10:49:38 PM  
First they land a chopper at ab Air Force One site and now this blatant show of mass armaments. Those cocoa-heads are just asking for a good ol' fashioned American ass-kickin'.

Whoever says the Swiss own the world record for biggest snowball fight never saw the grand snowball fight between me and my neighbors during the second grade. It might not have been the biggest geographically, but boy, think about what was at stake!
