<Tetsunora> I find "youtubers" under my shoes sometimes.
<Tetsunora> Invasive nasty species.
<nobody> i threw a pokeball at my boss today
<nobody> it didn't work
<Bucket> Of course it didn't. Now, go use a nuke.
<Eighty> bucket: time is just a window someone forgot to close
<Bucket> Eighty: Your mom is just a window someone forgot to close!
<Eighty> cool
<Bucket> Making Factoids is easy.
<Eighty> feeling very attacked right now, bucket
<Vulpes> why is me describing people as crypto-fascist the point where they *start* to want debating politics with me - surely if I am doing that it is a good indication that I would not be inclined to do so
<Eighty> the "crypto-" makes them think they haven't been clear enough about their beliefs
<Eighty> oh i see there's been a misunderstanding. you see i'm actually just a normal fascist
<Agafnd> huh, i have this power strip that the red light on the switch appears to be dying on ...
<Agafnd> the green 'protected' light is still on though
<Skyblaze> Agafnd, I've had a few surge protector strips where the light signifying protection died before the protecc circuits did
<Agafnd> Skyblaze: how do you tell though?
<Skyblaze> Agafnd, constant vigilance!
* Skyblaze pops out of Agafnd's surge protector and bops them in the head
* Agafnd promotes Skyblaze to Lieutenant Surge
-- Skyblaze is now known as Lieutenant
-- Lieutenant is now known as Lieutenant_Surge
<Lieutenant_Surge> Oi oi, what's going on here?
<Lieutenant_Surge> I smell a case of battery
<nobody> oh those are my quaruple As
<nobody> +d
<Lieutenant_Surge> nobody, STOP RESISTING
<Agafnd> haha good reaction, bucket
<nobody> ow
<Agafnd> shockingly good
<Lieutenant_Surge> Well, I see at least Agafnd has the capacity for humour
<Lieutenant_Surge> I hope joule'll all take notes
<Lieutenant_Surge> Do bear in mind y'all in the jurisdiction of a circuit court
<nobody> that was en lightning
<Lieutenant_Surge> nobody, watt was that?
<Agafnd> it does spark the imagination
<Lieutenant_Surge> ohm my god, other punners!
<Lieutenant_Surge> I see people have lepton the opportunity ;)
<Lieutenant_Surge> Perhaps you won't be charged in the end
<Agafnd> it's all your volt!
<Lieutenant_Surge> Wire you blaming this on me?!
<Agafnd> it's your downfall arc
<Lieutenant_Surge> Perhaps. Maybe I'll dodge that in-ducts though
<Agafnd> oh - i ampere-ing at this document which says you're innocent
<Lieutenant_Surge> Sounds like an impedance to my master-plan
<Agafnd> what are the mains components of this plan
<Lieutenant_Surge> Oh, I have a fuse ideas
<Lieutenant_Surge> They're... Down to Earth.
<Eighty> this conversation makes me want to diode
<Lieutenant_Surge> And with a third contender we're in A-Stable situation!
<Agafnd> will you be building from the ground up?
<Agafnd> do you have a three-pronged approach?
<Lieutenant_Surge> I don't think my approach will phase you
<gargleblaster> can't say im all that pleased with the current of this conversation
<gargleblaster> there's great potential for harm
<gargleblaster> it's polarizing
* Skyblaze gives Bucket a Bucket containing Bucket
* Bucket hands Skyblaze a bigger bucket in exchange for a Bucket containing Bucket
<Ferris> i got a bunch of letters about how Pete Cowden was going to ruin the planet with his socialist policies if he were elected as indiana state senator
<Ferris> so i went ahead and voted for him
<alizarin> I wonder what month is month 69
<alizarin> For me I think that would be July 2000
<alizarin> I haven't been away from home for any notable period of time since March, 69 nice jokes are the one thing still binding my psyche together
<@Kalium> some??? people make 69 nice jokes??? to cope????
<alizarin> Kalium: bingo
<alizarin> You would think the dexamphetamine, bicalutamide, and estradiol valerate would be handling that, but no
<bassgoon> ok I have one more thing to say about US politics for the day and then I'm done:
<bassgoon> aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

< taixzo> #xkcd Is Not Vim
<tonyb486> spent 10 minutes looking for a document in my house
<tonyb486> and it turns out it was in my filing cabinet, in a folder, filled with other related documents, properly labeled, etc.
<tonyb486> honestly the last place I expect to find something
<@tonyb486> poop
<@tonyb486> oop

<@tonyb486> poop
<@tonyb486> thank you all for coming to my ted talk
<@Kalium> hmm, drag force is ½ density * relative velocity² * the drag coefficient of your cube (easy to fine) * area of the face
<@Kalium> < according to the Drag Equation
<@Kalium> not to be confused with The Drag Equation, a show where I find and destroy Ru Paul to restore balance to the universe
<BytesAndCoffee> if it bites you and you die, its venomous. if you bite it and you die, its poisonous
<BytesAndCoffee> if you bite it and it dies, that means you're venomous
<IceKarma> oracle989, I have/had patellofemoral arthralgia in both knees -- I killed my left knee through *over*use, and my right knee through *under*use
<taixzo> were you, like, hopping on one leg or something?
<soobnauce> do you know that joke about the pianist?
<Bucket> No, but if you hum a few bars I can fake it
<soobnauce> yes, that one
<@airtank> i wonder if jersey mike's is open on sunday
<@Kalium> airtank: that is the most American possible restaurant name
<Skyblaze> Alright: Suggested rules for a Muppet Treasure Island drinking game?
<Skyblaze> All I have so far, is drink when Tim Curry does a hearty laugh
<Skyblaze> And chug during Cabin Fever to your heart's content
<JoAnneThrax> How about, whenever a muppet appears, you do a line of cocaine.
<JoAnneThrax> ?
<@Charlie> i don't even need context for this. that's the best suggestion i've read all day
<Vulpes> what you really want to use is reverse RPN
<BytesAndCoffee> nah, reverse infix is where its at
<Vulpes> ...on both sides?
<Kalium> outfix notation
<Kalium> oops! all brackets!
<soobnauce> love it when I run out of cheese at exactly the same time I run out of crackers
<soobnauce> it's like a message from god himself saying good job, you did it
<Bucket> xkcd forums is
<Charlie> not anymore
<Bucket> At least not since the accident.
<\documentclass[48pt]{troll}> You can set your nicks to full LaTeX directives!
<Bucket> Randall Munroe is an anagram of unreal lord-man
<tonyb486> Mandall Runroe
<Bucket> Mandall Runroe is an axcellent ertist
<XanT> Mandall Runroe draws extremely detailed 3D art, but their comics arnt amusing.
<tonyb486> photorealistic faces
<XanT> Mandall Runroe once drew a comic about a ferret that could dig deep in to the ground and in a surprise appearance saved a boy who was otherwise going to float away on a balloon.
<XanT> Mandall Runroe believes the blue spiders are leaving ¬.¬
<soobnauce> one of my fears when composing electronic music is that I'm going to write a drum fill so soulful that I'm going to run out of toms
<soobnauce> that the solo is just going to Run out of toms
* Cortana tries to decide what game to play
<tbo> tretis
<asarkar> Is that a game I haven't heard of, or a catastrophic typo?
<tbo> tetris
<+jcx> Yeah, I highly recommend playing the original fallouts as an idiot.
<Xenos> jcx: I play *all* my games as an idiot
<Bucket> Spork is engaged to DHeadshot.
<DHeadshot> WTF bucket?!
<Bucket> wtf yourself DHeadshot!
<DHeadshot> Who added that?!
<Bucket> I did.
<DHeadshot> I don't think Spork was still around when I joined even!
<XanT> If a star can fit in the space the diameter of a small city, then you should be able to fit a KFC restaurant in to an envelope.
< Aris> every bit's a bit
< Cortana> and every eight bits are a byte
< Aris> Cortana: and four bits are a nibble
< Cortana> and NIBBLE.BAS is a game
@Kalium: maturity is knowing you were a dipshit in the past, wisdom is knowing you will be a dipshit in the future, and common sense is doing your best not to be a dipshit now
LittleBit: @Kalium: that should be called the Existential Prayer
<Ferris> not mine
<@Kalium> that's a lot of pitchers
<@Kalium> or are those lillies
<Ferris> pitchers
<@Kalium> and you know what they say
<@Kalium> pitcher's worth a thousand words
<Ferris> mmhm
<Ferris> *so many words*
* tonyb486 puts a pitcher of words in bucket
* Bucket drops visine and takes a pitcher of words.
<thana> oh thats good
<thana> I thought bucket was dropping visine into the pitcher of words
<thana> that'll make someone word vomit
<@Kalium> I tried dropping visine one time and it just made me ill
<@Kalium> stick to acid
<Xenos> Never underestimate the bandwidth of a starship full of crystal data storage hurtling down the hyperlanes
<@Kalium> hmm, "radio transmissions can't go through hyperspace but ships full of data can" is certainly a good framing for a sci-fi adventure
<@Kalium> that's basically the opposite of Ender's Game
<Agafnd> it's like the opposite of an ansible
* Agafnd hifives Kalium
* Kalium hi-five's Agafnd
<@Kalium> god DAMMIT
<Agafnd> :D
<Xenos> tonyb486: Hide this!
* Bucket stuffs a judges wig down tonyb486's pants and whistles innocently.
Xenos waits for tonyb486 to pull out his penis at the next trial and declare "This is the judge now!"
<tonyb486> Nah, can't use that move more than twice
<XanT> Hmm, trying to think of what I can use my pigscuit barrel for. I dont have enough biscuits to necessitate a barrel, and Im not sure what else to do with it.
<XanT> Maybe sweets, though I tend to eat them very rapidly.
<XanT> The problem is, its entirely opaque. If I could see what was in it itd probably be much more useful.
<XanT> Socks! I could use it for socks. I dont care what socks I grab.
<tbo> XanT: what are you talking about?
<Bucket> salted biscuits, of course
<Xenos> flicky: Hide this!
* Bucket stuffs a fleshlight down flicky's pants and whistles innocently.
<flicky> O_O
* Xenos blinks
<Bucket> Is anyone else turned on?
<Telo> Please can somebody explain SpaceMacs
<Telo> It's like they took Vim and Emacs and decided to make them both harder
<BytesAndCoffee> Telo: sounds like the only way to get people from both sides to cooperate
<BytesAndCoffee> or a way to start an actual thermonuclear war between the two factions
<BytesAndCoffee> one or the other
<Telo> BytesAndCoffee: That's apparently their idea, but it just makes everything WORSE
<BytesAndCoffee> Telo: the former? or the latter
<Telo> BytesAndCoffee: Both
<@alice> okay so, take cinnamon toast crunch and instead of milk use chocolate pudding.
<nobody> i want to subscribe to your newsletter please
<DukeCeph> also, oh, I suppose if the week is the sandwich, the weekend would be (for BytesAndCoffee) the _weekbread_
<BytesAndCoffee> DukeCeph: well, who doesn't like getting high on the weekend? if not absolutely /toasted/
<DukeCeph> BytesAndCoffee... your pun is doing more to convince me about the weekbread model than any logical argument ever could
<multi> so the problem there is that timemachine triggers the search/replace or recall actions based on a regex match on each message sent to the channel

<hooloo> Oh great, Krakatoa's erupting again.
<IceKarma> hooloo, ...
<Bucket> [The screams of the dying fill the fetid air.]
<@Kalium> it'd be fun to have a shared SQL database of factoids you and your friends can all populate
<adalovecraft> It would
<Bucket> No it wouldn't.

<@CO2> ...this again
<@CO2> we get these italian folks once every couple months or so
<@CO2> they seem to think this is a 1990s IRC network with a filesharing bot
<@CO2> and you know
<@CO2> if you ask nicely enough Isaac might be willing to loan you his nail file for a bit
<@CO2> but other than that no filesharing is happening here

<cnf> btw, do your printers turn off the hotend fan when the temps are low?
<cnf> or do all the non-prusas do the creslity thing where that fan is on when it is on power?
<rift> what is a prusa and what is a creslity
<rift> what is a hotend fan
<rift> I have so many questions
<Agafnd> my elbows are distrustful heretofore
<Agafnd> unless a crazy bucket makes them stop
<Agafnd> that rarely ever happens i am sure
<Agafnd> if one did make a film then it would flop
<Agafnd> four fourteenths of a sonnet i just wrote.
<Agafnd> until my wordy hands ran out of steam
<Agafnd> a caucus is a lousy way to vote
<Agafnd> at least that's how the cornland one does seem
<Agafnd> perhaps a water glass would help me think
<Agafnd> extemporizing verse is no big joke
<Agafnd> even if the themes might make you blink
<Agafnd> and cooking beans requires an o'ernight soak
<Agafnd> i don't know what the point of all that was.
<Agafnd> i hope it wasn't just insectoid buzz.

<Cortana> I haven't read xkcd in years now probably
<nobody> there's an xkcd comic?

<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!
