He decided to try and win her over early on Sunday.

By chopping her into pieces!
2003-03-24 01:47:06 PM  
Hacker?! I hardly even know her!

Or maybe: Hacker?! I hardly even know html! But I have this handy knife!

Ok ok, last one: Hacker?! No, internet ROMEO! With a knife!

Also, just a heads-up regarding the misleading headline: It seems that it was only the male half of the "couple" who did the hacking to pieces.

Damn, the Fark parties are getting messy.

This can't be true. Internet dating always ends happily ever after.

There wasn't mutual hacking, just one hacker and one hackee.

The newspaper quoted the police as saying Thapa confessed that after she rejected his wooing, he became "emotionally excited and upset and hacked and stabbed the girl to death".

Um, yeah. The guy did all the hacking and killing and stuff.
2003-03-24 04:37:59 PM  
Wonder if she got the point that sometimes you have to cut to the chase even though it may end up being a stab in the dark...
2003-03-24 04:38:03 PM  
Say...Say WHA?
2003-03-24 04:38:09 PM  
And they lived happily ever after. No wait.

He's an internet hacker.

Meet Your Match.com.... She met hers.

2003-03-24 04:40:52 PM  
Police said Thapa then tried unsuccessfully to take his own life.

... but he couldn't screw up the "trying to kill her" part.

Did he at least mutilate his own genitals? can we have the "technical" Darwin award?

Jumping on the attack-the-submitter bandwagon... -10 points for gettin' the story wrong.

On an unrelated note, Drew Curtis unavailable for comment regarding Fark.com's potential connection to the incident...

Is it possible that internet dating has sunken to all new low? Is that even possible?
2003-03-24 04:43:32 PM  
Smooth, I don't think I could of done it any better. Two thumbs up for Romeo.
2003-03-24 04:43:56 PM  
Dress me up in stitches it's now or never
I'm tired of wearing black and blue
Dress me up in stitches its now or never
Dyin' to get my blood on you

2003-03-24 04:44:35 PM  
why couldn't he have just hacked himself to pieces first and saved some innocent life. Moron.
2003-03-24 04:44:53 PM  
do people read these stories before they write the fark headlines?

/old complaint
2003-03-24 04:45:42 PM

I used to love her,
But I had to kill her;
I used to love her,
But I had to kill her.
She biatched so much, She drove me nuts,
And now I'm happier this way.

I used to love her,
But I had to kill her;
I used to love her,
But I had to kill her.
I had to put her, Oo, six feet under,
And I can still hear her complain.

Youse Farkin' Farkers are idiots for makin fun! This is the kind of love only a man like O.J. Simpson could EVER comprehend !

Back in the fourth grade we were introduced to something called reading comprehension. The idea was to read an article or a few paragraphs and then answer several questions that would determine if we actually could remember what we had just read.
I always thought the answer was 6,721. I used to copy from the paper of the submitter of this article.

This ended pretty sanely for an email romance.

Stupid Nepalese, always bringing knives to a flamewar...
2003-03-24 04:48:35 PM  
Isn't Nepal the places where the prince went on a killing rampage and murdered lots of people at the palace? I think I'm seeing a pattern here.
2003-03-24 04:49:45 PM  
Maybe this guy was a Ninja

Theoe guys are so crazy and awesome that they flip out ALL the time. I heard that there was this ninja who was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon the ninja killed the whole town.

So maybe she dropped a spoon

"If you love something, let it go; if it doesn't come back..."
2003-03-24 04:52:20 PM  
Ok..so I'm sure she "cybered" him, sent really bawdy emails and got all down and dirty. But then after SEEING him, she has to have her FRIENDS tell him she's not interested. What happened to the love????

What was he going to "surprise" her with (besides the knife blows & blood) early Sunday morning?? Her friends already told him she wasn't interested, I think it's all premeditated!!! Where's LawTalkingGuy to back me up on this one!?
2003-03-24 04:52:50 PM  

Considering that 90 percent* of all violent acts are perpetrated by men, why hasn't the female gender risen up and overthrown my fellow barbaric and malevolent brothers? If any other 'group' of people had this high of a violence rate, we would enprison them (if they had oil, we would bomb them.)

My suggestion for overthrowing us: take your top off; as our mind locks and the drool starts to flow, suffocate us with your boobies. Everyone wins.

* - This is a made up statistic. I bet it's higher, though.
2003-03-24 04:52:59 PM  
Cardinarky, I almost shiat myself when I read that.

The headline freked me out, because when I first read it I thought the man's name was E-Love, which was what we used to call my roommate. I thought i had just found out he murdered someone from Fark, but then I read the article.

it went like this, as near as anybody can tell. he went to her family's fish fry, took her to the drive-in, porked her, then beat her to death with his boot. it is speculated that he was upset about the ease with which he got into
her pants, when she had resisted his brother's attempts earlier. he threw the body into frenchtown pond, if memory serves, and went home. when the police found him the following afternoon, he was nonchalantly scrubbing out the cab of his truck with the aid of a garden hose.
2003-03-24 04:56:46 PM  
Unperson: Thanks dude! May you never be stabbed.
2003-03-24 04:57:33 PM  
"And that was the last time I ever talked to chicks..."

Ah, see what you women do to guys? This is a rather good example of an Intellectual Whore (some guy even wrote a website with obvious URL).

Please, ladies, don't tease guys.
2003-03-24 04:57:52 PM  
Shows once again that its better to have a gun and not need it than to need one and not have it.
2003-03-24 04:57:53 PM  
Yeah, I think she got the point.

God reveals security flaw in skin, allowing hackers to gain access to vital internal components....
2003-03-24 04:57:58 PM  
She was looking for a real cut-up.
2003-03-24 04:59:11 PM  
What's with all the submitters who can't read?

2003-03-24 04:59:47 PM  
"So I hacked her...to death with a knife."

2003-03-24 05:00:35 PM  
I met a chick on the internet once through a friend. I dropped 200 bucks, flew to Arizona, and she was a pig. So that was that. Yes, I did bang her, but that's beside the point - internet relationships are ALWAYS DANGEROUS at first. If you're a moron, you go see the person to follow up, and BAM - reality hits you with a friggin' haymaker. This is just my situation magnified to the highest degree.

/banged an awful pig of a human for no reason

2003-03-24 05:01:07 PM  
At least maybe the next girl will say "yes". Just look at what this one made him do!
2003-03-24 05:01:50 PM  
It's very dark in here today.

Im 22/f/CA and i Carry a Glock 22C, this article shows why.
