It speaks to the general immaturity of a lot of the people who post on Fark.  Baby nursing?  Well, I'll just whip my dick out and pee in public!  Never mind that the little baby will soon be pottytrained, because it is unacceptable for adults and older kids to urinate in public.  People who are deathly allergic to peanuts?  Never mind that the allergic person is someone's child, and nothing else is "wrong" with the person.  They should just be fed peanuts and if they die, oh well, Darwin.  A young woman weighs 150 pounds instead of 110?  Fatty.  Put down the fork, Fatty, say the multitudes of ugly people, people with tiny dicks, people who smell like a gym bag full of sweaty, dirty gym socks, people who are mean, rude, and generally unfun to be around, so they have no friends -- people who smoke, drink, do drugs, or have other unhealthful habits.

I appreciate the month of total fark that was gifted to me, but I really don't care to spend more time on fark.  I really do just read it for the articles, and sift through the garbage in the comments in case someone has something intelligent or interesting to say.

A person lives in the country and raises the food we all eat?  Durrr, must be really stupid.  Never mind that the farmer works harder than probably anyone posting on here.  Never mind that he has to have a keen knowledge of mathematics, the skills of a mechanic, the skills of a veterinarian.  Never mind that he and his family have to "go to town," probably a half hour away at least, to buy the things they need.

Sometimes you people make me sick.  Go ahead and post your "welcome to fark."  If you are so proud of being douchebags that you display it with that stupid picture, there really is no hope for you.

angry_scientist: Now I aint sayin they're all gold diggers, but

OK - I hate to weigh in here but...

My live in and I raise beef cattle and most of the money we make basically goes back into the farm.  It does give us some cushion financially with our full time jobs but we work so much that it is like a second full time job.  Any woman that goes to this thinking that she is going to find a sugar daddy is insane since she will be expected to work on the farm too.  I don't mind it most of the time but it is a physical and dirty job that is never over...night, Christmas, etc.  Stuff has to be fed, babies are being born, fences fall down and it never happens at a time when it is convenient.  When it is 100 degrees and you have no grass because of the drought and cows are breaking down fences and escaping you really begin to question if it is all worth the trouble.

Burr: He apprently thinks somebody said "only farmers suffer" instead of "most farmers suffer and it is a dying part of america" cause you know we are in a thread about farming.....

No, I think that lots of people work hard and even suffer.

But the argument is being made here that farmers are unique and we have to subsidize the industry to preserve and admittedly nonviable business model.

Should we create programs to keep family-owned hardware stores in business? Should the corner tavern be propped up by the taxpayers so it can compete with TGIF Fridays?

Unobtanium: My first thoughts were of the Norwegian Bachelor Farmers of Prarie Home Companion and maybe a Powdermilk Biscuits booth.

/listens to too much NPR

Nothing is wrong with listening to NPR. The problem lies with listening to PHC.

Sybarite: Maybe they need to look into ordering up some of them Eastern European women. I've heard they can pull a plow like nobody's business.

I saw it on Borat, so it must be true.
