<multi> bbiab, going to see star wars
<+tonyb486> spaceeee battlees
<+tonyb486> sky conflict
<+tonyb486> faraway kerfuffle
<Charlie> hopeless situation parliament and presbyterian church
<taixzo> ice is strong in compression, wood fibers are strong in tension
<IceKarma> taixzo, I’d like to think I’m strong in both cases
<taixzo> :P
<Kalium> the ice is strong in compression and the sneps are strong in tension
<Lisimba> IceKarma: don't you always mention how you're not actually ice? :-P
<IceKarma> Lisimba, yes, but I enjoy making those jokes anyway
<Lisimba> fair
<emad> 07:21 < permagreen> If I were a conspiracy theorist, I would be connecting semi-random events together with a haphazard narrative that likely contains racist undertones somehow
<emad> this sounds a lot like a cop too!
<rift> I
<rift> dutch
<rift> just
<rift> dutch
<rift> someone's gonna say something in dutch to me irl and I'm going to nod and laugh before realizing I don't understand a damn thing they said
<Lisimba> rift: that's how we do it too so I don't foresee any problems there.
<@Stereo> it's funny how there are 2 nearly unrelated foods named pretzels, the only commonality is the shape being pretzel
<rift> Stereo: made of wheat
<@Stereo> it's like if 'sandwich' didn't mean anything
<@Stereo> except XYX
<rift> sandwich cookie
<rift> sandwich cracker
<rift> ice cream sandwich
<rift> Stereo: Sandwich doesn't mean anything except XYX.
<@Stereo> yeah it does, oreos are not sandwiches
<rift> they call themselves sandwich cookies
<@Stereo> maybe as an adjective
<@Stereo> not a noun
<rift> Unless your argument is that "sandwich is being combined with other words, therefore it doesn't count"
<@Stereo> mostly my argument is "the oreo company is wrong"
<rift> If I say I'm having a "sandwich", I usually mean something similar to a club sandwich
<rift> If you ask me "is x a sandwich", my answer is usually "yes"
<rift> but if you ask me "what is a sandwich", I'm not going to use hot dog or ICS as an example
<arble> does the Buddha have the sandwich-nature?
<rift> so the word doesn't go both ways
<rift> arble: guts on the inside, skin on the outside? he's a ravioli.
<arble> open at both ends though
<arble> so I contend cannelloni
<rift> ...
<+taixzo> is a sandwich a sandwich
<rift> taixzo: I would say yes, but some people would disagree!
<@Stereo> sandwiches and ravioli are both topological spheres, they don't require a void
<@Stereo> buddha does
<@Stereo> so he's at least also something else, maybe also just not a ravioli
<rift> Stereo: counterpoint: bagelwich
<@Stereo> the buddha may be a cronutwich
<jarmstrong> O.o Colleague just zoomed through here on a wheelie chair whilst eating a salad.
<jarmstrong> I wonder wtf that was about.
<multi> jarmstrong: code compiling?
<jarmstrong> multi: He seemed to zoom with purpose.
<multi> jarmstrong: maybe the build failed
<rik> i learned a thing yesterday. This dude, from The Office: https://imgur.com/gallery/VAaBpei ... he wrote a book for little kids.
<SpaceHobo> huh, I don't remember him from the office
<@Kalium> SpaceHobo: American The Office
<SpaceHobo> Kalium: wait what?
<SpaceHobo> they re-made the office for the US?
<@Kalium> SpaceHobo: yes
<SpaceHobo> did they not know we speak English over here?
<IceKarma> lol. unsurprisingly “object-oriented programming” becomes «programmation orientée objet», or POO for short
<taoistextremist> Shit, I'm gonna do all my development in French now guys
* rift energizes CO2
<CO2> why
<rift> wondering what other energy states you have
<CO2> rift: you're doing a bad job and you should pay more attention when using IRC
<CO2> ...sorry that was my supercritical state
* Xenos opens the Love Auction
<Xenos> Do I hear an initial offer?
<Cortana> Xenos: 20
<Xenos> 20. I hear 20 for love
<Xenos> 20 going once
<Xenos> Going twice...
<ArdaXi> 21
<Cortana> 22
<Xenos> I have 22, 22 for love
<Xenos> Going once
<ArdaXi> 25
<Cortana> 30
<Xenos> 30! We have 30 for love!
<nobody> 35
<Cortana> 40
<Xenos> 40 for love going once
<Xenos> Going twice
<Xenos> Love sold to Cortana for 40
<Cortana> \o/
<CO2> Xenos: jump!
* Xenos dodges
<Xenos> Hah! Missed me
* CO2 throws a duck at Xenos
* Xenos is confused about the timey wimey wibbley wobbly nature of this conversation
<CO2> Xenos: how do you feel about this talk?
* Xenos jumps
<seven> I also learned "Koalas, wombats and Tasmanian devils all share the three-vagina structure. The side ones carry sperm to the two uteruses (and males marsupials often have two-pronged penises), while the middle vagina sends the joey down to the outside world."
<JoeyLemur> ...I don't WANT to go down to the outside world!
<Agafnd> slashnet has a twitter account, TIL
<flicky> It was created today
<flicky> So
<flicky> That's the only time you could have found out
<Agafnd> slashnet has a twitter account, T
<rift> I'm at my computer and I physically can't read the text on my right monitor correctly with my right eye
<flicky> rift: that is because the right eye controls vision on the left and vice versa
* flicky is a superheroine
<rift> flicky: what origin?
<rift> we have technology, science, spiders, magic, mutation, and natural
<flicky> I was born super
<rift> does that make you natural or mutation?
<flicky> Good question
<flicky> On the one hand, being super is my natural state. On the other hand, there's no-one like me so I must have mutated somehow
<rift> "natural" doesn't alwasy mean "there are more like you"
<flicky> True
<rift> "natural" could be "I have a Ph.D in kicking your ass"
<flicky> I have a bachelor's in heroism
<@Stereo> fuckin spiders
<flicky> Fucking spiders is not one of my powers
<flicky> it's just a hobby of mine
<+BytesAndCoffee> you should know by now i don't really watch anime
<rcombs> I've been trying to fix that for years
<Bucket> Science is wrong.
<rcombs> often!
<@ultravic> ultravic is wrong
<@barometz> frequently, with great vigor
<Agafnd> now i think there's a spider hiding in my ethernet port
<Xenos> Agafnd: Duh, that's how you access the web
<rcombs> I'm in ebisu, where you can't shake a stick without running into several restaurants
<rcombs> so the problem isn't lack of selection, it's decision paralysis
<rabe_> pity then. that's what i loved most about china XD
<nobody> go to tower records!
<nobody> is that still there?
<rcombs> nobody: that's in shibuya!
<rabe_> oooh i know!
<rabe_> try to find something with pets! thats a thing in japan!
<rabe_> there are like cafes that have owls
<eezo> there are cafes with <literally anything> in .jp
<rcombs> there _is_ a cat cafe near the station
<eezo> the cat cafe we had here in my city closed like 2 years ago
<rabe_> yeah, but owls specifically are super neat.
<rabe_> objective fact. not biased at all.
<rcombs> not seeing any owl cafes around here
<rabe_> damn^^
<rabe_> might have been a hoot
* rabe_ puts a coin in the terribly-cheap-pun-box
<CO2> hi
<CO2> I'm looking to sell my Delorean
<CO2> it's in good shape
<CO2> low mileage
<CO2> only driven from time to time.
<Stereo> sometimes i get 'bad touch' stuck in my head and start describing everything as "the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket"
<Stereo> cause you can clean most things with that
<Stereo> guacamole. the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket
<Stereo> i guess to scan it should be one syllable though. eg. BLOOD.
<Stereo> bread. the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket.
<Lisimba> Butterflies. The kind you clean up with a mop and bucket.
<Charlie> horses. the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket
<_qrs> A large-scale nuclear disaster threatening the livelihood of the entire southern part of the country with fallout travelling westwards into Europe, the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket.
<Stereo> runs. the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket
<Charlie> i will admit that since i've been using sulfuric acid for my pipes, i've started thinking of other things it would be useful for
<Charlie> ...probably not so good with a mop and bucket, however
<+Bucket> yay relsqui is back
<DHeadshot> Are they?
<+Bucket> Not really
<Stereo> so it's one of those "pick a number between 1 and everyone"
<Stereo> cause a 0 person rapture could have already happened
<Stereo> or is constantly happening and it's what sunbeams are
<_qrs> thicctoria: yo you're gay
<+Bucket> "Yo You're Gay" would be a nice name for a band.
<_qrs> It would, Bucket
<+Bucket> Damn straight.
<+loudaslife> even if you're okay with riding on actual roads everywhere, there's often not a good place to lock your bike
<Stereo> i just lock my bike in inappropriate places
<Stereo> really anything that's not a wheelchair ramp seems fair to me
<Stereo> small trees? children? great
<Stereo> noone's gonna escalate bike theft to baby kidnapping
<hppavilion2> So what's Mrs. Claus's job, anyway? We know that she fought Krampus together Santa Claus, both riding dragons
<hppavilion2> But, like, does she have other jobs? Is she just retired? Is she Santa's air traffic control? Does she handle the other hemisphere?
<rift> hppavilion2: battle maiden
<hppavilion2> rift: What does she battle though these days?
<rift> ...
<rift> ...atheists.
<Bucket> buttload is more accurately written as "1.00 buttloads"- remember your significant figures, kids!
<Agafnd> Bucket: buttload ~= s/"-/" –/
<Bucket> Okay, Agafnd, factoid updated.
<Agafnd> how's that for incomprehensible strings
<Agafnd> i'm glad bucket doesn't need escaping
<Agafnd> actually
<Bucket> * Agafnd adjusts his glasses and takes a deep breath
<Agafnd> Bucket: inventory
<Bucket> I am carrying fewer cheeseburgers, Agafnd, a collection of famous pubes, why is it hot af today, Saturday, tonyb486's worry, bearachute leg, French Fries, Graham's number, Plan B, the bellagio, "It Came From Uranus" Sci-Fi/Body Horror, an alternate universe where buckets store things in people, ALL the chocolate, a Polybius ROM dump, a crate of M43, 343 Guilty Spark, rowhouses, a ticket for the Titanic, and the hand of vecna.
<Agafnd> turns out i *do* need to escape bucket
<Kizul> GUYS: sequel to "Untitled Goose Game"! I totally know what they could call it: "Untitled Goose Game 2: Entitled Goose Game" :D
<Kizul> (Optionally without the second "Game")
<@pikhq> Kizul: Untitled Geese Game.
<Kizul> pikhq: Now featuring competitive co-op multi-player for up to eight players (local) or up to a whopping THIRTY-TWO players (online)!
<Stereo> my concern with letting people co-op canada geese is they would learn morse code to honk instructions to each other
<Stereo> and geese are too lawless to morse
<Stereo> morsiless if you will
<+tonyc486> I hear this tonyb486 spends more than $3000 on McDonald’s cheeseburgers every month
<Xenos> The *ultimate* killer clown
<Oracle989> When are we getting a Waterworld remake?
<Oracle989> And where is my arctic Mad Max?
<Palomides> ice age apocalyses seem unpopular lately for some reason? :P
<IceKarma> Palomides, I’m only 41 >.>
<IceKarma> Lisimba, are you not aware of all the different ways Shakespeare spelled his name throughout his life?
<grawity> more than you could shake a spear at?
<_qrs> Now you've confused me; start at square one: what is a molecule?
<_qrs> :)
<ArdaXi> it's like… a bunch of balls connected with sticks right
<_qrs> Won't the balls deflate if you put a stick in them?
<_qrs> I don't know if the physicists thought this one through
<ArdaXi> they've got special holes in them for the sticks
<_qrs> Are you trying to tell me about the birds and the bees
<Vulpes> like, I know that some authors consider some of their published works to be fanfiction, but
<Agafnd> right, is fiction about (greek|roman|norse|egyption|whatever else) gods fan fiction?
<Charlie> Agafnd: not unless you think those gods are real
<Agafnd> Charlie: then it's real-person fanfic, isn't it? :P
<@Kalium> real deity fanfic
<Bucket> http://realdeityfanfic.tumblr.com/
<@Kalium> please be real
<eezo> Bucket: wasspord quotes ~= /love/

<eezo> ...
<Bucket> [The Kool-Aid man bursts through the wall.]
<Charlie> lol
<eezo> Bucket: wasspord quotes ~= /love/
<Charlie> searching for love brings up a lot of slovenia
<Bucket> <WassPord> it's never a good time to emigrate to Slovenia
<eezo> jesus christ on a fucking pogo stick
<Charlie> which means you're officially...looking for love in all the wrong places
<@Kalium> My family tells me that the day before I got my eyesight checked for the first time we went to a circus and sat aaaaall the way at the back.
<@Kalium> Turns out I could not possibly have seen jack shit
<@Kalium> That's why instead of a fear of clowns I have a fear of red and yellow blurs

<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
