A message from Drew Curtis:  
________________________ 

Tomorrow (Wednesday), we're going to be giving 24 hours of BareFark to everyone!  Let us know what you think, and if you like it feel free to sign up for BareFark!

I'm out traveling this week, Bay Area mainly.  In San Francisco on Thursday at 7 p.m., I'm a contestant/panelist on Rebecca Watson's Quiz-o-Tron at Piano Fight.  Friday evening I'll be joining Stone co-founder Greg Koch in San Jose for a Stone tap takeover (i.e., beer). If you're anywhere near either of those, drop in and say hi!  Would love to see you all.

We now return you to your usual Fark NotNewsletter.

Tuesday, February 26: Las Vegas Fark and 50th Birthday Party (please note the date has changed)
Thursday, February 28: San Francisco Fark Party: Rebecca Watson's Scientists vs. Comedians Quiz-O-Tron with Drew, then drinks somewhere after

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)      

Yet another fun time on the quiz, and playing with the pencils on the Group W bench. Parts of the South are starting to see dry land again, after what was the wettest February on record (and still some chance of rain on Thursday, so month ain't over yet). On the Quiz, TwoHead takes the top spot with 922, followed by ThePuceGuardian in second with 895 and rokstar in third with 877. Denjiro makes fourth with 861, and LizardOnAStick sneaks into the top 5 with 856.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over Florida Man's new career as a purveyor of online cheat apps. Only 27% of quiztakers knew that "Elusive" was a cheating package Florida Man had created and sold for GTA Online, and since he failed to show up for court, the publishers won a $150,000 judgement against him. Because in a world where the object is to steal cars, participate in major heists, and kill law enforcement officials, we've all gotta play fair. As a wise man once said, "This isn't 'Nam, there are rules!"

The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over a phone scammer who picked the wrong guy to fark with. 79% of quiztakers recognized the name of William Webster as the man named by Jimmy Carter to serve as  FBI Director. He was later named by Ronald Reagan to serve as Head of the CIA, the only person to have held both positions. He also currently serves (at 94 years old!) as the Chair of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, a position he has held since 2004 under three presidents. Yeah, probably not a guy you want to threaten over the phone to get money from. He might know a few people.

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over rapper Cardi B's Instagram feed, which I'm sure everyone taking the quiz subscribes to. Only.51% of quiztakers knew that she sent out a thank you to the late Tom Petty when she recognized the lyrics to "Walls" on a card accompanying a floral arrangement congratulating her on her Grammy wins. I think next week I'll include a question on Khloe Kardashian's Twitter feed, so I hope you're Keeping Up.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over the silly names our friendly but somehow both silly and stuffy allies on the British Isles have for things. 92% of quiztakers knew that "Dead Man's Leg" was a name they've given to a jam-filled pasty which is rolled up and then steamed. The name seemingly comes from the rather unhygienic practice of steaming them in old shirt sleeves or trouser legs, and the fact the jam was usually reddish in color and showed through when you cut into it.

If you missed the quiz last week, you can catch up on it here.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again this week!

Barefark? Is that the thing where you pay each month to not have adverts on a single site, rather than obtaining an adblocker for free that works on all sites?

FRANKFORT, Ky (AP) -- Millions of Americans developed symptoms of projectile vomiting after Fark CEO announced the first ever BareFark Wednesday, inducing thousands of middle-aged members of the site to spend the day nude.

"It's a 'dad-bod' bacchanalia," said one individual who wished to remain anonymous. "These people really should return to their basements, or at least grab a towel."

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Everyday is bare if you use an ad blocker and don't feed the Fark squirrel. Don't nobody have time for all the chock-full-o malware ads Fark tries to serve up.


Try whitelisting Fark tomorrow, and see the difference. The site loads better, you don't end up with the glitches that ad blockers can cause. You don't get ads that sneak through, including sponsored links. And also, some people like to support the site that they spend a lot of time on because they don't want to lose it and the community they've become a part of.

Nope. Site loads fine and takes less than a second to open on a fresh tab for me. Never have a problem with glitches.

Haven't ever seen a sponsored link, didn't even know they were a thing.

If you're paying $50/year for TF, the additional $25 for BareFark really isn't that much. I'm an outright cheapskate when it comes to web sites (most of which are overpriced for what they provide) but I support Fark because it's still run by a small group of smart-asses who aren't trying to data-mine my rectum (like that hoodied hood in Menlo Park). Fark is cheap (but not cheerful, thank FSM) entertainment that would still be worth it at twice the price.

/Don't get any ideas, Drew.
