Are those quotation marks really neccesary?
2003-04-08 08:27:53 AM  
Dammit, just wear some hot, sexy lingerie.

Works with me!

Shame on you, housewife whose name has been withheld!! Shame on you!!

Headline rewrite: "Self-mutilator succeeds in getting attention"
2003-04-08 08:35:54 AM  
I keep telling people that EverQuest is too damn addicting, but no one listenst to me!
2003-04-08 08:37:36 AM  
Crazy-ass biatch. I feel unfulfilled though by the reporting on this story (was she stabbed or slashed somehow else? does her partner ignore her by playing computer games? does she even have a partner?). Where's [image from paulharvey.com too old to be available] with the rest of the story?
2003-04-08 08:40:10 AM  
The article could have at least told us what computer game he was addicted to.
2003-04-08 08:40:19 AM  
She obviously never thought of switching the power off at the fusebox. That tends to get a LOT of attention.
2003-04-08 08:42:07 AM  
Honey, you're dating a tool. Get away, find yourself, start a new life.
2003-04-08 08:42:20 AM  

exactly....turn the power off chloroform him, and then zip-tie him to the bed, i do that with all the girls i meet.
2003-04-08 08:43:36 AM  
I insist that all the girls I meet do that to me!
2003-04-08 08:46:13 AM  
Oh, btw: the game he was playing was "Virtual Jenna Jameson ver. 2.1" with the "That does'nt go there" patch installed.
2003-04-08 08:54:37 AM  
So now she goes to jail ... more time for computer games!
2003-04-08 08:55:12 AM  

"Zip-tie" - are those dem dere plastic thingies that are usually used on bundled electrical cords (kinda replacing twist-ties)?

And, where can I buy chloroform?
2003-04-08 08:55:34 AM  
the campaign continues...

We need a japan tag!

He was probably relly looking at Boobies links. Sounds like the story was changed to protect innocent farkers! ;)
2003-04-08 08:57:22 AM  
1. We need a picture of her to make any sort of fair evaluation.

2. If your man is so wrapped up in computer games as to neglect you and your needs...*who* has the problem again? He's made his choice.

That said, wtf is wrong with women? Guys have short attention spans and are distracted easily. There is no need of an elaborate plot to get them to look at you. I wish such ploys weren't necessary in the opposite direction...but you could be hit by the space shuttle and most women won't look at you unless you've got money or power.

sounds like it was more of a plug-ing than a patch Oasics

Publisher forced to redraw black child as lips 'too thick'

A government-appointed textbook screening committee forced a publishing company to revise a picture of a black child because "it could mislead students into believing that all Afro-American people's lips are thick."

The revision involves an English reader from the publishing house Tokyo Shoseki that carried pictures of black people with an essay by an Afro-American writer.

After members of the committee, which conducts textbook screenings annually, told the company about the problem, the publisher revised the illustration not only of the child but also of his mother, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology officials said Tuesday.

Do you know I think it is a plug in, the "Jenna goes to lesbos" is the patch
2003-04-08 09:01:59 AM  
Obviously she can't be attractive, since type of people to get addicted to games doesn't make contact with human females, and will take every chance they get.
2003-04-08 09:04:11 AM  
Ku_No_Ichi Not only that, but their skin is also too dark.
2003-04-08 09:05:09 AM  
those whacky Nagoyans, I swear I don't know what they'll try next.
2003-04-08 09:06:46 AM  
Stand in front of him clothless. It'd work for me.

Btw, hi all. I signed up for Fark a couple of months ago and forgot I did (still came to the site though).

*Is Slow*

Note to young farkers: ignore your woman and she will love you more.
2003-04-08 09:14:06 AM  
The original Chibikuro Sambo. [image from sterlingtimes.co.uk too old to be available] What'cha talkin' 'bout "thick lips"?

Ku_No_Ichi & Otoscope

Nothing is really the way we see it. The sky is actually green and the grass is red. Water is pink and the trees are actually orange.

And ketchup is blue.
2003-04-08 09:23:29 AM  
I think I might have dated her once...
2003-04-08 09:25:55 AM  
Isn't that just a typical woman...

Guys ignoring woman for video games = pathetic
Woman faking attack to get his attnetion = Pathetic

Sounds like a perfect match
2003-04-08 09:29:57 AM  
She should have just gotten addicted to computer games herself. Problem solved. That's what I did...

If she hadn't yet tried the nookie/nudity approach, there is something wrong with this woman. If she has tried it a few (or more) times, she is being used and needs to find someone who isn't such a tool. Looks like she's one of those many people who isn't smart enough to do that, since she filed a false police report and all. Oh well, back to everquest...
2003-04-08 09:31:31 AM  

HA! I forgot that one!
2003-04-08 09:32:23 AM  
I was going to comment that the boyfriend was probably looking at porn and the girlfriend was too embarrassed to say, but then if it really was porn Mainichi would never have let that slip by without saying.
2003-04-08 09:33:27 AM  
What's wrong with having thick lips? Just more to kiss.
2003-04-08 09:35:59 AM  
isn't it time for strongbad ??
2003-04-08 09:36:09 AM  
Maybe he started using fark quotes and posting them as 'articles' for CBS?
2003-04-08 09:39:02 AM  
I bet her "partner" was playing BattleField 1942 / Desert Combat .3 Mod... The wife could be slashed to pieces and I'd never know.. too damn addictive...

Publisher forced to redraw black child as lips 'too thick'

They had "DSL".

Now I'm going to hell for that one.>/font>

I'm going to take a stab at it, and say "Everquest."

Honestly, the people that have an issue with getting their lover to pay attention over them with video games have a bad lover. They need to seriously move on, or get that person therapy if they really love them.

I know if my wife ever faked an issue for my attention against video games that would be the last video game I would EVER PLAY.

The reason IMHO why many people are on Everquest to begin with is because they have a social issue (those kinds of things can run the gamut from not being socialized enough as a child, having poor self-esteem or mild ugliness or obesity, to a straight up chemical imbalance) and that the system removes all of that social concern. Everyone needs interaction. We are social creatures. Sometimes circumstances have made life more of a social climb for these people. Everquest makes it possible for them to get interaction without fear of castigation.

Now that being said, his girl needs therapy too. After all, staging a mock event is a little nutty as a method to get a person's attention. She could just give his arse an unltimatum. Unless the guy is a total fool, losing real girlfriends over imagined electronic whatever is the definition of insanity by addiction (the inability to tell the difference between reality and mental reality due to addictive influences).

Yeah yeah honney, just wait until I get the next power-up and WIN!
