Re: The New Joke Thread

My coworker is in the hospital after eating a medium-well cooked cheeseburger.

It was my cheeseburger.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Do you know how to distinguish an alligator from a crocodile?

By paying attention to whether the animal sees you later or in a while.

That reminds me of something that happened on my first sub. Jerry and I were both ETs and good friends, he had a pretty wacky sense of humor, you couldn't tell if he was serious or joking with you.

One evening we were eating dinner in crew's mess and another guy came over to talk to us and sat next to Jerry. Jerry was eating fries and the guy snagged one. Jerry very quietly said, "Don't touch my fries." The guy acted like he didn't hear him and grabbed a couple more and kept on talking. Jerry again said, "Don't touch my fries."

This time I knew he heard Jerry, but he went for another fry and this time Jerry stabbed him in the back of the hand with a fork and the tines went between the bones and a couple of them almost came out through his palm.

The guy screamed in pain and yelled, "WTF did you stab me for??" Jerry calmly told him, "I told you twice not to touch my fries. I don't know how else to put it. You ignored me and now I got your attention." The guy was still pissed off and said, "You could always go back and get more fries!"

Jerry said, "Those are the last of the fries. If there were more fries, I would have told you to go get your own, instead of stabbing you."

Re: The New Joke Thread

It's a geoblock. Following a link from the cruisersforum page thread html source for a non-showing image shows this message...

Right clicking a dud image and clicking "view image" will take you to a page with a 403 Forbidden message, too.

I am seeing all of them and I am loving them. I am in New York, using Windows 10 and the latest version of Firefox. I also have ad blockers and Ghostery anti-tracking. Everything is coming through!

When people started having problems I was using another browser, so I switched back to Chrome.

I'm open to suggestions as to possible cause and solutions!

Geofencing. That site is blocking access based on the geolocation of the requesting IP address.

Re: The New Joke Thread

I'm still not getting scoldmax memes and I am in SC in the US. I still think it has something to do with Firefox's recent updates and the blocking scripts they use.

Well, obviously, some system admin person at the IP in SC doesn't approve of a certain contributor's sense of humor - or a different sys-admin person at another choke-point thinks that the SC IP needs protection from certain CF contributors.

Censorship! It's the Deep State - Nanny State, I tell ya! Listen to me! You can't honestly belive it's not a real-world conspiracy to control our sense of humor and thereby control and channel our laughter into only pre-approved zones! This is fact, people! Wake UP! SC is only a test before the concept gets rolled out world-wide.



Wait.... You guys are serious? I thought this was some kind of off-the-wall joke and I failed to get the punchline. My bad. Carry on...

(slinks away quietly.... )

And comes back with a thought: I've never had problems viewing all of socaldmax's posts. Currently using Chrome browser, Win7. Accesed CF back and forth across the Pacific, from Mexico to New Zealand, with various Win packs, various browsers.


ben2go? Have you tried using a Virtual IP address? That might confirm/deny the geofencing idea and help narrow the troubleshooting options. But hey, I'm like Sgt. Schultz.

He has banned you from seeing the content for butchering his user name.
