<CO2> funny thing actually
<CO2> when I do a wrong thing in my code where it starts absolutely spamming an API by accident I call it DoS'ing
<CO2> every single time someone else describes it as "DDoS'ing" because, even though that's a way less accurate description, that's the term everyone knows
<loudaslife> CO2: maybe if you accidentally push it to production it'll be accurate
* billybo has left (I can't keep eating out this giraffe.)

<Agafnd> had to leave with more dignity, i see.
<multiplexd> rcombs: yeah, the british localisation would be "drinks machine" too
<multiplexd> rcombs: and calling a drinks machine a soda fountain would confuse the hell out of me
<Kizul> You kids today and your drinks machine and your videos game and your MP3s player and your...
<multiplexd> Kizul: and our walkmans!

<@Charlie> the fact it isn't as pessimistic as buddhists and epictetus are doesn't mean it's not working
<Kalium> bears still mess me up as a concept
<Kalium> we don't have bears here they seem like they're a lot scarier than lions which at least have the decency to not stand up on two legs and tower over you
<Vulpes> Kalium: how are they real
<Vulpes> oh look it's a giant dog
<Vulpes> wait why is it standing
<Vulpes> why is it 2.5m tall
<Kalium> NOT DOG
<null> vulpes
<Bucket> vulpes is drunuk
<null> yeah I think Vulpes would like that factoid
<Vulpes> hey I haven't been drunk in hm

<Vulpes> not making an excellent case for myself here
<orinthe> i just got a spam robocall that started "if you desire to grow your..."
<orinthe> and continued "...insurance broker business..."
<orinthe> i was rather disappointed
<Xenos> Take Viagra, grow your... Insurance broker business
<JoeyLemur> Impress your partner with your MASSIVE... rate discounts.
* JoeyLemur starts imagining an X-rated Progressive commercial
<Rena> "but ENTRAPMENT!!11!"
<IceKarma> Rena, What is the only thing Virginia used their sodomy laws for?
<IceKarma> Rena, oh, sorry, thought I was playing Jeopardy for a sec ;3
<Rena> no that's butt entrapment
<Hawking_is_dead> How hard is dutch?
<Lisimba> Dutch is easy, I learned it when I was just a kid.

<BairotciV> I think this IRC channel is haunted
<BairotciV> by a ghost named BairotciV
<Xenos> The ghost of BairotciV is angry
<tbo> BairotciV: oh no, what do we now?
* tbo calls the Ghostbusters
* Xenos sets mode +ghostbusters
<MemoServ> The answer to "Who you gonna call?" is actually always MemoServ.

<nobody> omg this cheese is so... chewy and good
<nobody> oh this is gouda
<nobody> its... gouda
<tbo> the english word "development mule" is really boring
<Xenos> tbo: Your definition of 'word' bothers me
<eezo> Xenos: your definition of 'definition' bothers me
<tbo> this conversation bothers me
<tawny> the one big complaint I have about moana is that they bring back the classic Disney Antagonist but don't really make him have a presence throughout the film like the old antagonists did, and I think that would've made it more cohesive and make the bad guy feel better
<Peng> you mean the chicken?
<Cheez> git commit -m "Just going to put this over here with the rest of the fire"
<apo> ... I want to do that at work, but have a feeling I shouldn't
<CO2> what snack do I want?
<Velociraptors> Flesh
<eezo> how about we just, y'know, engineer people to spontaneously detonate whenever they feel like saying stupid crap ?
<Lisimba> I don't want humans to go extinct.
<IceKarma> ahahahaha
<IceKarma> Google Docs just suggested a grammar incorrection, so I used the feedback thing
<IceKarma> it said, in the bottom left corner, "Thanks for the feedback! This suggestion has been automatically ignored."
<nobody> also i love and respect you bairotciv, but i have problems spelling your name
<Stereo> it's simple, you write zyxwvutsrqponmlkjihgfedcba then delete the zyxwvutsrqponmlkjihgfedc then write i, then rot, then civ
<nobody> oh that does make sense, i can remember it that way
<Agafnd> well you can't just remotely patch a car
* BytesAndCoffee loads sheet metal into a railgun
<Salamanca> farage being a major player...the thought of it makes me want to eat my own foot
<Salamanca> and the thought of boris johnson being pm
<Salamanca> makes me want to gnaw the whole damn leg off
<Oracle989> Salamanca: Pretty sure that's how foot and mouth disease spreads
<Kizul> Agafnd: fun fact: they FINALLY corrected the spelling of "Faint Attack" to "Feint Attack" starting in Generation VI.
* Agafnd faints
* Bucket feints.
<Charlie> so i've noticed that the farther north you get in canada, the more depressing place names tend to be, both in english and inuktitut. desperation bay, place with no dawn, etc.
<Charlie> but today i think i've found the winner
<Charlie> there's a guy flying down from northern quebec to meet with me and his plane's stopping, among others, in quaqtaq
<Charlie> wikipedia explains:
<Charlie> The name Quaqtaq signifies tapeworm. According to local folklore, this name derives from a man who once came to the area to hunt beluga and found live parasites in his feces.
<Charlie> "place we found tapeworms in a whale hunter's shit, quebec"
<nodoby> huh, reminds me of how names going south to phoenix from flagstaff would get bad
<nodoby> i don't remember many, but there was bloody basin and horse thief basin
* Agafnd has joined
<Lisimba> Columb: tl;dr you can move adult trees and it's commonly done with commodity hardware.
* Agafnd mentally debates whether that's about plants or data structures, settles on plants
<Columb> Agafnd: since the "adult" specifyer, I'd think plants
<Agafnd> Columb: i mean, it could just be NSFW data structures
<Xenos> What's this button do?
* wings explodes
<wings> YOU JERK
<Bucket> I'M NOT CLEANING THAT ONE UP
<Bucket> I OUGHTA PRESS YOU INTO JERK CIDER.
<CO2> loudaslife: I have a usb power bank, and it has a micro-usb port that is meant to charge it, and a big-usb port that is meant to charge other stuff, and if you connect the two up, the "recharging" led turns on
<CO2> I won't try this for a longer amount of time because I think it will keep generating energy until it explodes into nuclear fusion
<loudaslife> energy companies HATE this one weird trick
<XanT> You can actually look at the energy ratings of the flats the large place with wooden floors and no double glazing is slightly more energy efficient than the smaller place with double glazing and carpets
<XanT> The former has central heating, the other electric heaters.
<benjaminikuta> Electric heat? You mean bitcoin miners?
<Lisimba> Yeah but without the bitcoins.
<Stereo> so, probably more useful to society
<Xenos> I just had a visit from a priest
<eezo> Xenos, did you order an exorcism ? :P
<Xenos> eezo: But I don't *wanna* go home!
<offbeatwitch> ... just sent a file to myself over DCC
<offbeatwitch> this feels entirely stupid
<SpaceHobo> in 1993 someone dcc sent me a file called a_quarter
<SpaceHobo> inside it said "call someone who cares"
<@CO2> multiplexd: "it works on my machine" "then we'll ship your machine!"
<@CO2> and that's how docker was born
<[R]> Nice, I was drk_nemesis back then
<[R]> Definately not a handle I'd use now
<IceKarma> [R], hey, if something has no limits, it's...?
<IceKarma> (looking for a word starting with "i")
<[R]> infinite?
<IceKarma> [R], and... if it *does* have limits, it's...?
<[R]> Windows
<terran> [the cat] just prefers here
<terran> spends all day either on the windowsill or asleep outside the front or back door
<terran> making every attempt possible to get inside
<Charlie> it stashed some drugs in there before you got home
<Vulpes_> good cat
<IronAngel> I can actually explain this
<Vulpes_> <3 cat
<IronAngel> its like when you have an indoor cat that isnt allowed into the bathroom (or where ever) - their drive to explore means all closed doors are a high offense to their cat dignity
<Charlie> "i can't go there? for that reason alone, there is nowhere i'd rather go"
<Charlie> i know many people who work on the same principle
<IronAngel> you have an entire gigantic BOX it is not being allowed to explore... and it probably has many smaller boxes inside... some of which might contain food
<Charlie> especially children
<IronAngel> because, after all, its big home box has boxes with food, thus this one must as well!
<IronAngel> thanks for coming to my TEDpettalk
<tonyb486> They seriously printed out, like, a 200 page spreadsheet. Five copies. We went over one page of it.
<betawaffle> tonyb486: weird, that sounds like a law firm to me. where do you work?
<tonyb486> betawaffle: Law firm
< loudaslife> dammit, there are 3 different sizes of toilet flange and I have no idea which this one is
< loudaslife> the toilet model doesn't neccesarily match to a particular flange
< loudaslife> I think I'm just going to go with 3" and hope it fits
< CO2> that's what she said
< Xenos> Bucket: Invent something
* Bucket creates a Xenos emulator.
< Xenos> Dammit
<+Bucket> Dammit Archer!
< Xenos> I mean making a Xenos emulator is one thing, but doing it in three lines of code is just humiliating

< CO2> wut
< powera> all i got was "Hunter2"
< Iykury> h*ck why did that go over irc
< Iykury> frickin' tty was being weird
< Rena> ENOTTY
< CO2> Iykury: This incident has been reported.
< Rena> cool password btw

< Iykury> just changed my password if anyone's wondering
< CO2> Iykury: what did you change it to?
< Iykury> CO2: hunter2
< CO2> ok
<crawfs> there was a time when one of his replies to "cool" was a dick pic with sunglassess
<Buckley> i find that less offensive than an aids joke
<crawfs> Bucket, depends how much you like the sight of penises I suppose
* Bucket stares at crawfs in disbelief.
<sean> thank you
<sean> I hoped to have sex more than once before i turned 30
<sean> but whatever
<Bucket> <-- helped!
<eezo> oh jesus christ
<eezo> on a pogo stick
<eezo> I was being nice to one of the members of our minecraft server, because I generally am nice to people
<eezo> now she thinks I was hitting on her x.x
<Agafnd> aw
<eezo> this is seriously no bueno
<eezo> lmao
<eezo> i'm literally more than twice her age hahahaha
<Agafnd> she's probably unpleasantly used to creepers :(
<Agafnd> i mean
<Agafnd> minecraft
<Agafnd> but that's not what i meant
* Jax184 gives Bucket two tickets to a furry convention
* Bucket drops its standards and takes two tickets to a furry convention.
<Jax184> that's the spirit
* Ferris puts external medicine in bucket
* Bucket is now carrying external medicine.
<Agafnd> Ferris: now i am imagining a prescription bottle of pills labeled "EXTERNAL MEDICINE" and nothing else
<Agafnd> wait, a bottle of pills?
<Agafnd> what the heck, imagination
<Agafnd> shouldn't that be a bottle of liniment?
<Xenos> Agafnd: External pills?
<Agafnd> yeah
<Agafnd> external pills
<Xenos> Just pour them all over yourself before you go to sleep
<Xenos> I can see this being a hit
<Agafnd> it has a big warning label "NOT FOR INTERNAL USE"
<rcombs> telephone poles are just taxidermied trees
<BytesAndCoffee> no, they're trees that got jobs
<BytesAndCoffee> stripped of any personality, poked and prodded to make them useful
<BytesAndCoffee> forced to stand in line
<BytesAndCoffee> any deviation from the norm is reason for either "corrective action" or replacement
<BytesAndCoffee> ...that got very depressing, very fast
<rcombs> BytesAndCoffee: we literally pump them full of preservatives though
<BytesAndCoffee> rcombs: your job doesn't have ready stocks of chips and soda on-hand?
<NeatNit> I'm not familiar with the local rules, would it be okay to PM davean about the broken random button thing?
<Aaeriele> fwiw, random works for me
<NeatNit> well it does now....
<loudaslife> It works for me now too, but I swear it didn't 5 minutes ago
<NeatNit> some fairy must have fixed it
<loudaslife> NeatNit: most people have it set to notify them when you mention their name, so I'm guessing he saw this and fixed it without saying anything
<davean> NeatNit: what random button thing?
<NeatNit> loudaslife, one can never know if he's really online though
<NeatNit> not even now
<BairotciV> I formed a religion based on loss.jpg
<@Kalium> that's called twitter
<BytesAndCoffee> Kalium: how do i delete your blog
<@Kalium> Look you'll need to be specific about which awful thing I said
