It doesn't take me very long to read Fark anymore. I used to read all the articles that grabbed my attention and all of the comments that went along with said article. Lately, tho', I've developed the habit of reading the comments until I hit one that reveals the commenter to either be (1) dumber than fuck, (2) possessed of the reading comprehension skills of a big, steaming turd, or (3) some unfortunate combination of the two.
This tactic reduces time spent farking by about 90%.
ETA -- (4) When some numbskull reveals complete ignorance of something that happened before they were born.
