What would you like to do?
Autoforking

Paste this into your JavaScript console to fork your own gists! No fork button? No problem!

var f = document.createElement("form");
f.method = "POST";
f.action = "/fork" + location.pathname;
var s = document.createElement("input");
s.setAttribute("name", "authenticity_token");
s.setAttribute("value", document.querySelector("input[name=authenticity_token]").value);
f.appendChild(s);
f.submit();

I believe this no longer works. The gist API also refuses to allow forking your own gists. In what universe does it make sense that everyone else in the world can fork my gist except myself? Sigh.
