A message from Drew Curtis: 
 
March Madness is finally here.  Every year there are a few TotalFark bracket pools - feel free to jump in one of those.  If anyone wants to set up a Fark Discussion pool, feel free to submit one.  If we get a ton of submissions, I'll pick the pool names I like the most.  Duke sucks.
 
A quick feature update: If you subscribe to TotalFark via Stripe, it now allows you to buy recurring subscriptions for others, which wasn't the case previously.   So if you feel the urge to sign up for either TotalFark or BareFark, have at it!
 
Speaking of which - a generous anonymous Farker has donated ten 1-year TotalFark subscriptions.  This week we're going to post a discussion thread every other day.  Topic: what's the best thing that's happened to you as a result of Fark?  Did you meet your spouse?  Did you end up with a Fark baby?  Did knowing to drink an entire bottle of vodka after consuming anti-freeze end up saving your life as well?  Let us know - the 10 best submissions will get a free TotalFark sub.  Anyone who'd like to sponsor anyone else as a result of an extra-awesome submission, feel free - we'll pass out the 10 subs at the end of the week to whoever still doesn't have one.

Fark Madness.I assume it is like a regular Fark gathering, only it occurs at midnight or only in the month of March.

What a useful addition to the English language. Well, at least to Fark patois at any rate. Unlike many Fark memes it may be culturally bound.

An email that someone you sponsored has renewed?

Didn't know they could do that. Huh. How does that happen?

Did you meet your spouse?  Did you end up with a Fark baby?  Did knowing to drink an entire bottle of vodka after consuming anti-freeze end up saving your life as well?

Yes
Yes
I drink the vodka first and then I don't want antifreeze

Yep. Also a message at the top of the page (where I keep my system-generated "Happy birthday from Fark" messages). And I got another sponsorship to give out, too. Nice!
