Subby, four years is a long time to hold a grudge for a redlight. Let it go, man, let it go.

I was naked, in the mezzanine of the Trump Casino Atlantic City, the Donald was screaming at me to come back and talk to him before I did something we both regret. I picked up my leather boy scout uniform from the floor and walked out the door. We've never spoken since.

Do I have regrets? Of course, who wouldn't. I think what hurts the most is the way The Donald has taken to politics so alien from the warm, loving, tender man I knew.

Fark you Subby, for making me remember this!

Sorry Submitter. I remember where I was when I heard John Lennon was killed on December 8th and watching the news reports. Nothing else on this day comes remotely close to that.

I'm.. so.. confused. Is this referencing the Ann Coulter headline from that day? Or .. what did happen on that day? That wasn't the day of the big theme change was it?

Me neither. We must lack the resolution, the dedication and the iron will that drives Fark admins relentlessly.

I'm guessing that was the day Drew changed over the site to the newer, current format. People royally freaked out over it, posting 'I fear change' and similar sillyness, some in jest and some... not. Someone went as far as to (more like? No, wait) went as far as to write a stylesheet you could download that reverted fark to the older format.
