Please sign all edits made to talk pages, thank you --PantsMacKenzie 20:38, 22 Jan 2005 (EST)

You guys sure have dirty minds. --Chronarion 17:53, 5 Jan 2005 (EST)

You guys sure make my brain swim in its own juices of glee --PantsMacKenzie 10:04, 19 Jan 2005 (EST)

Isn’t this kind of like an everything2 lite?

Was the site down? I couldn't access it for a day or so. UnholySauce 00:19, 23 Jan 2005 (EST)

Yes, the server crashed briefly before. Guys, PLEASE keep the main page sane. It's tempting, but I think I gotta rollback, there has to be somewhere where things make sense. --Chronarion 17:54, 2 Feb 2005 (EST)

I'm gone for a few days and the place goes berserk. Awesome. --Chronarion 22:39, 9 Feb 2005 (EST)

I love how the "Sauron is Lord of the Dance" picture is still on the main page. I suggest it should be there FOREVER. I laugh every time I see it. --PantsMacKenzie 14:47, 3 Mar 2005 (EST)

I know we must "resist the urge to edit the header," but we must put the number of articles in there somewhere. For example:

As of right now, there are 3829 articles in Uncyclopedia!

or something --Darkdan 23:48, 7 Mar 2005 (EST)

Currently, I’ve moved it off the header since it queries the database more. I'll put it back when the traffic dies. --Chronarion 16:12, 11 Mar 2005 (EST)

Is there some way of automageing the front page so it puts recently added and most-wanted articles up there automagically?--Machinecurse 16:33, 12 Mar 2005 (EST)

I prefer it the way it is, it takes a bit more time but it is more Wiki philosophy and it gives you more control. --Paulgb 20:42, 18 Mar 2005 (EST)

Can you remove main page from the Popular category? --Nytrospawn 16:40, 14 Mar 2005 (EST)

No. --Chronarion 22:52, 14 Mar 2005 (EST)

Skin is broken

I'm getting a "Fatal error: cannot redeclare class skinmonobook in /homepages/43/d116280534/htdocs/uncyclopedia/skins/mb.php on line 25" whenever I log in (after selecting the "mb" skin). Somebody might want to do something about that. Anonymous editing makes me feel naked. --12.218.124.149 16:24, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)

Nevermind. I'm good now. But... nobody choose that skin, kay? Trust me. --UnholySauce 00:00, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

I need a picture

Of any Pope playing soccer. PLEEZ! Photoshop???? OK! --Savethemooses

I can't even find a pic of the Pope suitable for photoshopping into a soccer pic. Point me to one & I'll be happy to Photoshop it for you. --Uvula Donor 08:02, 18 Mar 2005 (EST)

Wikipedia

Would be nice to have a link to Wikipedia on each page, just like on Wikipedia to the same page in different languages. Saying that coz u might stumble on a page here where u really wanted to know what the concept is about -- or just to compare or even better: get more ideas of how to write the right truth :) 217.82.188.238brevity

I disagree. I know that sometimes it would be useful to get the Wikipedia article, but I think having a direct link would cause people to copy-paste-parody (if you know what I mean) rather than use their own creativity. --Paulgb 20:39, 18 Mar 2005 (EST)

Three column layout

Are there any guidelines on how many articles are in each column? --24.222.9.242 13:11, 9 Mar 2005 (EST)

Generally, if the page gets really long, we remove some items from the Recent articles section and the "Write about" section. Generally, we haven't removed anything from the Featured section. Don't worry about it, one of us sysops will take care of it --PantsMacKenzie 13:38, 9 Mar 2005 (EST)

I'm keeping it sorted out. But generally, we just do it by eye. --Chronarion 04:26, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)

Hint, POOHS, a hack is a little more work than editing an open page. Wows. LOLS. --Chronarion 23:34, 11 Mar 2005 (EST)

Highlights

Okay, clearly I’m biased as to what is a highlight and what is not. I'm trying to use a higher standard for highlights rather than stuff we've seen over and over again. Personally I find a lot of stuff excessively incoherent. I think that we should probably vote on highlights rather than simply addwar it? --Chronarion 23:37, 11 Mar 2005 (EST)

Is it possible to make that one section of the main page sysop editable only? And then, make a special page for adding to it? Like the VFD, but maybe Vote for Highlight? Don't know, just my two cents. --PantsMacKenzie 00:43, 14 Mar 2005 (EST)

WRITER'S BLOCK!!! GAAAAH!!!! --Savethemooses 20:33, 18 Mar 2005 (EST)

Requested Pictures

I think it would be nice to see a requested pictures page like Wikipedia has [1]. What do other people think? --Paulgb 20:59, 18 Mar 2005 (EST)

Good idea. --Savethemooses 11:05, 19 Mar 2005 (EST)

What, like this: Uncyclopedia:Requested_pictures?--Machinecurse 18:53, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)

Exactly like that. It's on my watch list now, so if anyone needs any pictures edited me or someone else will give it a shot. --Paulgb 20:42, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)

Did anybody know

That there is a book published called "The Uncyclopedia"? Amazon --Savethemooses 19:34, 19 Mar 2005 (EST)

GO CHAT NOW

Go on chat! It fun! I on but nobody else is! --Savethemooses 14:24, 20 Mar 2005 (EST)

I be retarded. Point me to a page that will tell me how to figure out how IRC works and I'll go chat. --Uvula Donor 16:35, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)
What do people use for IRC on windows these days? Still MIRC or what? Any really lightweight IRC programs that are any good? --Paulgb 20:45, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)
I've been trying to figure out ChatZilla, which is an IRC extension for Firefox. But, you know, I'm retarded and all, so it's taking me some . . . uh . . . time. --Uvula Donor 19:26, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)
It took me two days to figure it out. Grab mIRC, connect to an IRCNet server, and type /join #uncyclopedia. If it's empty, maybe you're on the wrong server. --stillwaters/Talk 23:20, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)
Or maybe you're on the right server. --UnholySauce 12:57, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)
Yes, more people have to get on the chat :/ --[[User::Johnfn|Johnfn]] 4:01, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)
I added some info and a link at the bottom of the main page. Lets see more people in the chat. --Paulgb 18:24, 27 Mar 2005 (EST)

Xena

Daughter of Pythagoras and Hilary Duff was Xena...the Warrior princess. Good, bad, mad, happy, bi, and many more words can describe. An extraordinary woman who alone has the ability to defy gravity and propel herself pretty much where ever she pleases, a secret gained by her dads extensive work with triangles...Every warlords fear her and dread the sound of that _peculiar_ war cry...aieeaieeeaieesheeeeeya, a guarantee that they're about to get their heads smashed in. Her sex appeal is never underestimated...I mean who can't resist a woman (barely) dressed in leather.

The key to her success, her chakram. A metal ring...similar to a Frisbee, which ricochets off anything and everything, eventually employing a boomerang characteristic of returning to her.

She has had many sexual relationships, with warlord scum, Hercules, even Julius Caesar himself. But who can forget the relationship she has with her blonde (ditz turned sexy) sidekick Gabrielle. Although they never openly revealed their relationship, it was obvious the two were lovers.

Xena has gained recognition for many of her achievements, but recently there’s been an arrest warrant issued for her 'violent' manner in which she deals with criminals. She was last seen jumping to extreme heights and pole-vaulting over Mt Everest. Though it has been quoted that she has plans to become complete ruler of the world and reinstate that all women must be leather clad and men should wear tight pants.

NEW LAYOUT!

Sweet, love the new format =D --JHarr 18:52, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

I think the "write abouts", recent articles list, yadda yadda, should be brought back below the featured article and stuff. Spocksbrain 19:04, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

  • Or at least "Write abouts" Spocksbrain 19:05, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

It's all there. Look down. --Algorithm 19:19, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

Nooo! Change is inherently evil! ...Well, actually the new layout looks pretty good. I'm not sure where the highlights went, but they were pretty arbitrary anyway. --UnholySauce 19:45, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

This is excellent - as I commented while this layout was in beta testing, it looks much more like Wikipedia and hence we get +5 Parody, -2 Originality. Incidentally I think it might be worth sticking the "People" category on the list at the top of the page, as it's one of our most populous (and amusing) at the moment.--Machinecurse 11:30, 25 Mar 2005 (EST)

Protect

Since everything relevant is in templates now, I think we can lock the main page. Any ideas or objections? --stillwaters/Talk 16:11, 26 Mar 2005 (EST)

I would like to see it stay open, but I guess since there is not always someone watching the main page and stuff, protecting it the only choice if it becomes a problem. If we had enough people it would be nice to have it unprotected and just ban any ip that messes with it in a bad way. It would be great if it could be open only to logged in users, but I don't think that’s possible either. --Paulgb Talk 09:14, 28 Mar 2005 (EST)

Hm, I see your point, though... there really isn't any good relevant reason to mess with the main page, really... Is there? --Chronarion 01:35, 29 Mar 2005 (EST)

1 April

Shouldn't Uncyclopedia's front page be deadly serious on 1 April, given Wikipedia's propensity for jokes about toilet roll holders on that date?

April is no joke! --Chronarion 12:04, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)

The main page is serious. Heathen!

I like the old name

Well, April 1 is all done and gone here in Blighty so please for the love of Sophia put it back to how it was, luvvies --Goomball 18:41, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)

Done. Blasphemy though. --Chronarion 01:06, 3 Apr 2005 (EST)

Fucking hell, it just wasn't enough for you fuckers to vote for AAAAAAAAA! as a featured article TWO FUCKING TIMES, was it? Now some jackass had to change the main page too. Someone kill the dipshit who wrote AAAAAAAAA! and end this crap before any other unfunny, senseless attempts at humor are made.

Hey, if you're going to do an AAAAAAAAA! reskinning, do it right. With a logo. If you're too lazy to take the "UncyclopediA" letters and replace them all with As, then use Image:Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa.gif. --Nerd42 00:31, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Already done. Go to image:Wiki.png and reload. Then the logo should appear. --—rc (t) 00:34, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

::I've gone and re-uploaded for posterity, like I did with the Thanksgiving logo, at Image:AAAA.png. --Nerd42 01:03, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Again, check before you leap. We've had it as Image:Aaaa.png for a while now, it appears on AAAAAAAAA! ands Aa: automatically as the logo, like we did for the Tlh: page. --Splaka 01:07, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

So, uh, why is this funny? --Dalar 00:58, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Click AAAAAAAAA! and be amazed, man. You can take any article and rewrite it using only the letter A and it looks like All your base are belong to us Reloaded. --Nerd42 01:06, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

And I was going to suggest that this be the next reskinning! Who read my mind and tole my idea? WHO??? --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 01:16, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

It's been in the anniversary template for Dec3 for a while. --Splaka 01:20, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

What are you gonna do, add more AAAAAAAAAAAA? heh --Splaka 01:20, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Was thinking of AAAA :A

Yeah, so this is the best page ever to exist ever. I suggest making AAAAAA the front page once a month on a random day. Who's with me?--Myronic 01:48, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

...Wait a minute, was Euroipods really featured or is that just a joke? ----Mandaliet 03:57, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Yup, they were really featured :P --Dalar 04:09, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Wow, i feel so honored to have my made up anniversary to have that done to the home page... =].

Due to my time zone, this was up before I went to sleep, and it is up again. Which almost led to me to ask, "How many days of AAAAAAA will there be?" I have since realized my mistake, but not after the song wrote itself.... On the second day of AAAAAAA, my admin gave to me: two hour bans, and an AAAAA in a AAAAAA AAAAAAA. --Katie loves you! 17:55, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

It still hasn't been up 24 hours yet (about 23.5 right now). Themed days are often left up a maximum of about 32 hours (from midnight UTC to midnight PST the next day) to give an even exposure. This one will probably end after 24 however. --Splaka 23:35, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Thanksgivingpedia

I went and re-uploaded this image for use with the Thanksgiving article. --Nerd42 00:50, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)


Featured article

I'm assuming it's the work of vandals, but the currently featured article, Euroipods, is just rediculous (sp?). My other point was about the spelling of friends, but that seems a bit hipocritical now.--Joachim22 09:50, 2 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Um... it's Uncyclopedia, all the articles are ridiculous. Welcome to the Federal Republic of Duh, Captain Obvious! --Nerd42 15:55, 2 Dec 2005 (UTC)
No, I meant when Euroipods was the featured article. Probably just temp while they were doing the aaaaaaaaaa thing. Sorry. --Joachim22 04:00, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Anyone else see this page totally messed up, or is it just my browser? The featured article, did you know, news, etc are all scrambled out of order. Also, the black hurts my eyes. Put it back to white. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 15:15, 22 Nov 2005 (UTC)

-- I noticed it too, it took me a while before i fully realsied it was a spoof of memory alpha... and i only discovered this site 2 days ago... do they do a change like this often? it would seem not. Well great idea! i took a snapshot. Yes i am a trekkie, no i dont speak klingon... an Nintendorulez.... those who can should not be shot, thier lives are a horrible social wreak already youd be doing them a favor.... i wish this place had emoticons.... i want to do a :laugh: emoticon right now.

Oops, I forgot to give credit. I believe Elvis came up with the idea and the initial page. Splaka stole MA's monobook stuff to complete the makeover. I did the logo. There are probably other people involved, but I don't know because I haven't bothered to look. --—rc (t) 04:58, 23 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Uhh ... I see that many of the other main page themes have been kinda chagned so you can still look at them later ... where's this one's? And where's the uncyclomemory alpha logo image? I could really use that pic on Memory Alpha. --Nerd42 19:56, 23 Nov 2005 (UTC)

It's at Tlh:. I'll upload the Uncyc Alpha logo (before it was just uploaded as Wiki.png for use as the main logo) and put it on my page. --—rc (t) 21:13, 23 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Never mind, I forgot that I had already uploaded it a while back... --—rc (t) 21:18, 23 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Thank you. ;) uhh ... except that Tlh: doesn't have the Uncyc Alpha logo on it.... But I see where you've uploaded it yeah. Tlh: looks kinda crappy though with just the plain ordinary logo, you know? --Nerd42 04:05, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't know if there's a way to display the logo on just that page. I'm not a technical guy. --—rc (t) 05:04, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Sounds like someone's got some Mediawiki hacking to do. Not me though - I don't know how to do it either lol --Nerd42 05:06, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Custom Logos

Upon further investigation it turns out you apparently can't change a logo via javascript, but only via css. However, the css we were loading was offsite. So, I moved it onsite to one of the few places you can have it onsite, in a user's space: User:Elvis/memoryalpha.css (Elvis was the designer of the page). Then I edited it to show RC's logo, and changed the MediaWiki:Monobook.js to point to /index.php?title=User:Elvis/memoryalpha.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css (to load just the raw text) whenever any user was on Tlh: (and using monobook of course). Phew! --Splaka 06:33, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Sweet! Hey, would it be possible / allowed to fix up your user page with a different logo like that? --Nerd42 16:10, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Don't see why not!--The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur. CM and bars UGM F@H (Petition) 19:16, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC) On second thoughts it means changing MediaWiki:Monobook.js for the whole site so probably say no for User: pages, but I'm not the god here so if other admins say yes, then thats cool. --The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur. CM and bars UGM F@H (Petition) 19:21, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Heh, no, that wouldn't be feasable. Only former and future main page themes are worth it. Elsewise the monobook.js javascript could grow to exceedingly fuckingly large annoying size. Btw, you can change the logo on your user page just for yourself using your personal monobook.css. --Splaka 21:42, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)

I've been working on this some. See User:Nerd42/monobook.css and it's discussion page. Too bad I can't make it so everybody can see a different logo when they come to my user page. That'd be cool! I could make it say "UncycloNerd42" lol --Nerd42 05:09, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)

anyone can screw up

Right now, the Main Page reads, "Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia that anyone can edit." In my opinion, that is really lame. It ought to read, "Uncyclopedia; the content-free encyclopedia that anyone can screw up." Much more elegant, and funnier too! Whaddya think? Nerd42 22:26, 22 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Can I eat him/she too? I like to eat crappy idea-people! oh snap --Savethemooses 21:25, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)
hey, calm down. Twas just an idea. Thought it would be a better parody of Wikipedia, how their pages are always getting screwed up. How about one that says, "...that anyone can rewrite" It's less funny that "can screw up" but funnier than the present one simply because it's ... different from wikipedia in a noticable way yet still the same sentence. A better parody, you know? Anybody else got any better ideas for "that anyone can _" ? Nerd42 22:17, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I like the idea. It's much funnier than the original, and still parodies wikipedia's style, and is more noticeable. --Nintendorulez 19:44, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Give it up already. You already brought it up in the VD and most people werent interested. Maybe you don't get how its a parody. Wikipedias slogan is "Welcome to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit." so we made Uncyclopedia's "Welcome to Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia that anyone can edit". See, its a parody. --Paulgb 20:02, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, I knew that. I twas just thinkin of makin it a better parody. But yeah, admins aren't interested, so 4get it. The UnNews article needs help, you're right ... it isn't becoming as funny as it was supposed to be when I thought of the idea --Nerd42 21:26, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC)

I think the new anniversaries system is a bit of a mess. Anybody agree we should change back? The other was good, it gave people a topic to follow. --Carlos the Mean 00:11, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

What do you mean? The anniversaries look the same as they always did, as far as I can remember. The only thing is that today there's only one and it's sort of long (which, yeah, isn't good in my opinion). --—rc (t) 00:19, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

There seems to be too much UnNews. I think this site is getting popular, and therefore full of idiots. This "neopoprealism" thing, is it supposed to be funny? Because it isn't. Is it supposed to be spam? Because it is. I think we should delete those entries first. --Carlos the Mean 18:59, 9 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Heh, seems it's already been done. Ok, ignore all this --Carlos the Mean 19:04, 9 Oct 2005 (UTC)

UnNews is too fertile a ground for evil little minds of the unwashed masses, like my own. I'm going to have to restrain myself. At least I didn't include any Pat Robertson quotes, which would earn me a second, longer, and even swifter ban from "Famine".

This is a screenshot.

I thought it was just because I never use Internet Explorer - but I get the same thing... It seems that the left side is too large and so the right side is placed over the top. (IE6/Win98 here)

This doesn't happen using my normal browser of Firefox. --theNonMaterialisticSheep 13:44, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Still seems to be wrong. The anniversaries section looks okay - it seems to have enough spacing on that right hand side of the text, whereas the featured article still has the text underneath the news section.

I wish I could help, but I banished MS from all my computers two months ago, and thus browse with firefox only (well, I could use Konqueror) on a 19" LCD screen. And it all looks good to me.

I usualy use firefox (or NS 8) so I didn' notice, I could have sworn that I had fixed it but the problem seems to be back, the code looks OK so it would appear that it's IE being shit as usual, still not much use given the amount that IE is used we should try to fix it.--The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur.

MAINSCR

Main Page with IE problems

TEMPEXP

{{Featuredarticle}} template - more IE screw-ups

Personally - I don't like IE either... Anyway - I think the problem I am seeing is with the {{Featuredarticle}} template which is creating a huge left hand margin (definately more than 1em margin - more like '3em').

Is this the same problem that other IE users are having? Or is it a just select few? (I would hope that it isnt all IE users, 'cause that would be bad...)

Does the featured article need such an extra indent? - Wikipedia does not use it. Although, I do see that it works fine in Firefox - giving just the '1em' left margin perfectly and non-overlapping tables.

--theRealSheep 16:27, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC) Win98/IE6/1024x760

Now those were useful sshots & stats. Fantastic! On my screen, the image of the featured article lines up with the far left edge of the "O" in Today's, about 2 spaces to the left of where it's being rendered in that image. Nice diagnosis/diagrams. However, I'll let someone who remembers how to code HTML fix it, since I do it by trials and errors. ;) --Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 16:36, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Okay, now the front page is messed up for me (Opera 8/WinXP/1400x1050). The text goes through the featured article's image. It looks all right in Firefox though. --—rc (t) 19:31, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I'm getting this problem again intermittently. It's not a big deal - if I resize my browser window at all the text rights itself (in more ways than one, ha ha ha), but I thought I'd bring it up again in case other people are having the same (or worse) problems. --—rc (t) 06:59, 13 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Your're the worst trolls I've ever seen

Make fun of Wikipedia. Sure, if the morons who wrote this knew how to make a good encylopedia such as Wikipedia, then you'd have something productive to work on. But no, mock a great source of knowledge. You're worse then the deletionists! -Canadianism (as 24.79.120.210)

You are of course free to critique this webiste, which is a parody of Wikipedia and wikis in general. We realize that not everyone enjoys misinformation. However, many Wikipedia users with actual senses of humor come here, and enjoy the site. Despite its satrical nature, we do have rules, and enforce them. You blanked and vandalized Wikipedia, and since you obviously dislike this site and will never contribute meaningfully, you've earned an extended ban. --Splaka 22:54, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Uncyclopedia is hosted by Wikicities, which is managed by Wikia, which was founded by Jimbo "Wikipedia" Wales. We're only a couple degrees removed from Mr. Wales himself. Do you think we'd have found a host in Wikicities if our site was trollish and only existed to mock Wikipedia? I'm pretty sure many of the users here appreciate Wikipedia (I do). Now that you have some time off, get a job and buy a sense of humor. --—rc (t) 23:10, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)

That is right, good sir. We are indeed worse than Deletionists - we're Creationists, going about and creating stuff. Yes, that's right, ALL THE TIME!!! God, do something about these people!!! THEY ARE CREATING THINGS!!!! I swear, that must be against a Commandment somewhere out there. As for the worst trolls, that I take issue with. We are very, very good trolls.

You know, despite how much he praises Wikipedia as the best source of information out there, there is a lot of misinformation there.. And not the fault of those who run the site either. There are 40-50 edits in any given minute, and due to the sheer volume of the site, it's impossible for the staff to look at every edit, and they rely heavily on user input to fix those errors.. It isn't as big a problem here, because there are perhaps 10 edits at the most in a given minute, 20 on a busy day.--Vercalos 02:35, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC)
They have 662 administrators and 544,788 registered users to watch about 1 edit per second. We have 40 administrators (about 20 active, and about 10 very active) and only 5811 registered users to watch about one edit per minute average (but up to 10 per minute peak). The administrators here take up a much bigger role than on Wikipedia, mostly because of the smaller size. As the user database grows, the fraction that are administrators can be less. --Splaka 02:49, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC)

why women are evil

heres something i found on the internet that may ammuse some and may turn others in discust you've been warned.............




First, we assume that all girls take time and money.

Girls = Time x Money

Furthermore, we take the statement, "Time is money", and we get:

Time = Money

Girls = Money x Money

Girls = Money^2

Moreover, the statement, "Money is the root of all evil" means that:

Evil = the square root of money

Girls = (Evil)^1/2 (Evil)^1/2

which reduces to...

Girls = Evil

Ah hah! We have proof of the evil witches who are plotting the demise of the male population! Take that woman!

Or it will bore us to tears since that's been floating around the internet since AT LEAST the year 2000. And probably far longer than that. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 01:46, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)

If all girls "take time and money," then it should be represented as "Girls = time + money," because the mathematical representation of "and" is addition. *victory lap* 67.176.6.159 07:00, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)
I'd moved this from girls to girl as the girls article is actually about grills. :) --Carlb 01:15, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Are we talking about AAAAAAAAAAA thing? Because, yeah it's not funny.
Fucking right! About time someone agrees with me on that one.
Some trolls here seem to have very weird sense of humour. Adding "he is a robot from Mars" bullshit to every article in the "people" category is another example. There should be some sophistication, maybe even some connection to reality. That's what makes it funny. Personally I look to www.onion.com for inspiration. --Megus 19:34, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
