We thought we knew true evil. How wrong we were.

Last month, we presented a list of the most disturbing YouTube videos of all time: a terrifying collection of weird and warped clips from the darkest corners of the globe.

Well they terrified us, anyway. Turns out our readers are made of sterner stuff.

“Phht, you call these disturbing?,” asked one unimpressed sicko via e-mail. “Check out this video of a harlequin baby — now that’s disturbing!” [Link removed to protect your sanity.]

“If these disturb you, you're a pussy,” scoffed real shaman on the news aggregator site Fark.com. “Boring is the most apt description.”

In fact, the denizens of Fark — collectively known as 'Farkers' and 'Farkettes' — were singularly unimpressed with our patch-work horror show, as evidenced on the linked submission's comments page:

“Not a bookmark.” — Cagey B.

“If any of those rank among the most disturbing things you've seen on the internet then you're... Well, you're luckier than me.” — PenguinTheRed.

“The eye one was freaky but really only because I don't like eyes. The rest range from boring to mildly strange to annoying.” — Yeah right I can think of a good log in.

“Somehow, without a couple of girls and a drinking recepticle, this list is incomplete.” — stvdallas.

“What a bunch of sissies. You should all leave the internet now and leave the serious business to the big boys. …2 Girls 1 Cup? I have the directors cut.” — redsquid.

And so on.

Eventually, a challenge was issued to post ‘better’ videos on the comments page — and boy did the boys ‘n’ gals at Fark.com deliver. We decided to collect some of their nominated videos for your viewing, er, pleasure.

Warning: most of these videos should not be viewed by anyone, for any reason. We really, really mean it.

Manifestation of Greed

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
