[14:43:40] blackmoore|afk is now known as Blackmoore
[14:46:17] <nick> g'day Blackmoore
[14:49:02] <Blackmoore> monin
[14:49:10] <Blackmoore> you've been busy
[14:50:33] <Blackmoore> I'll have to see if i can find stuff to put into the queue
[14:50:47] <nick> http://www.zerohedge.com
[14:51:10] <nick> there's some interesting stuff going on in there, how relevant it is to SN i'm not sure
[14:51:50] <Blackmoore> http://arstechnica.com
[14:51:51] <NetCraft> ^ 03Rosetta has launched comet lander [UPDATED] | Ars Technica
[14:52:58] <Blackmoore> See what a sociopath this guy is? He claims he doesn’t like journalism, yet owns a newspaper and wants to buy the New York Times. I suppose it makes sense. The best way to rob a bank is to own one, and the best way to destroy journalism is to own a propagandist newspaper.
[14:53:06] <Blackmoore> that's the key to the entire thing
[14:53:10] <nick> indeed
[14:53:58] <nick> i found it interesting that two opposing people supposedly were making joint statements agreeing on buying the NYT together to shape its editorial line
[14:54:12] <nick> with one of them as you said, admitting they dont even like journalism
[14:54:29] <Blackmoore> yeah. i like this. we should run it
[14:54:36] <nick> "Adelson countered, “Why don’t you and I go after the New York Times?” Saban said that he has “tried over and over to buy it” but that the family-owned Times is not for sale. Adelson quipped, “There is only one way to fight it: money.”"
[14:54:42] <Blackmoore> it takes shots at a lot of people
[14:55:44] <Blackmoore> *snort*
[14:55:56] <Blackmoore> i just saw whos the credited writer.
[14:56:28] <Blackmoore> Submitted by Tyler Durden
[14:56:29] <nick> Michael Krieger?
[14:56:35] <nick> oh right yeah
[14:56:41] <nick> everything on ZH is 'Tyler Durden'
[14:56:45] <Blackmoore> ah
[14:56:54] <nick> all their editors use it
[14:57:06] <Blackmoore> well I like that. we need more fight club
[14:57:23] <nick> but the actual story comes from Michael Krieger; so if we're going to run it we should run it from the original
[14:59:00] <nick> trying to work out how to make a summary of it
[15:03:15] <Blackmoore> think i got it.
[15:03:28] <Blackmoore> check the queue - and throw in what you want
[15:05:45] <nick> i think the opinion that israel not needing to be a democracy should be mentioned
[15:08:39] <Blackmoore> it certainly is telling.
[15:13:03] <nick> i'm changing things up a bit, trying to keep it as concise as possible
[15:24:52] <nick> you here to give it a second look when i move it to the queue?
[15:25:00] <Blackmoore> yup
[15:25:27] <nick> i want to make it jump the queue, i think it deserves prime time
[15:31:03] <Blackmoore> works for me
[15:34:03] <Blackmoore> that looks good
[15:34:12] <nick> seeing it?
[15:34:47] <Blackmoore> yup yup
[15:34:57] <Blackmoore> in stories queue
[15:35:14] <nick> maybe find a place to split it into extended copy?
[15:35:39] <Blackmoore> yeah.
[15:36:08] <Blackmoore> after the second quote?
[15:37:34] <nick> sure
[15:38:35] <nick> feel like singing off on the other stories i put up, the marijuana one is due up in a few minutes?
[15:48:44] <Blackmoore> yup yup
[15:50:20] <Blackmoore> queue is green
[15:51:09] <nick> :D
[15:52:11] <Blackmoore> we should run the rosetta mission in primetime too
[15:52:37] <Blackmoore> they are live streaming starting at 4pm est
[15:56:09] <Blackmoore> now in queue
[15:57:50] <nick> does the earlier story not cover it?
[15:57:56] <nick> http://soylentnews.org
[15:57:57] <NetCraft> ^ 04SN article 03 Rosetta Probe to Land on Comet at 9am GMT 04(12 comments)
[15:58:39] <Blackmoore> i was lookking for this
[15:58:44] <Blackmoore> and couldnt find it.

[16:07:24] <nick> random colon [UPDATES :]?

[16:14:05] <Blackmoore> nick you in it right now?
[16:14:14] <nick> i am, but you can fast-forward if you want
[16:14:42] <Blackmoore> nah. you got it
[16:15:40] <nick> gah we're all on it now lol
[16:16:54] <nick> janrinok managed to edit it too

[16:17:07] <nick> janrinok 11-12 16:14:32 updated
[16:17:07] <nick> n1 11-12 16:14:55 updated
[16:17:07] <nick> n1 11-12 16:15:26 updated
[16:20:33] <Blackmoore> made it a group effort.
[16:20:35] <Blackmoore> :P
[16:35:52] <nick> think it's time to use up the last of my specially imported rations
[16:36:44] * nick sources tins of bush's beans and brunswick spicy thai chili tuna from north america
[16:37:06] <Blackmoore> nice
[16:37:29] <nick> can't get anything as good over here, so i get it brought over for me, or when i'm in the area i pick some up
[16:37:51] <nick> the tuna literally goes all the way around the world to get to me
[16:38:06] <nick> as it's a product of thailand, imported into canada or the usa
[16:38:15] <nick> and then i get it brought over the europe
[16:42:19] <Blackmoore> well it is Tuna. isnt native to the UK
[16:42:41] <Blackmoore> glad it can get to you at all.
[16:51:35] <nick> yeah, i'm making the most of it while i can
[16:51:47] <nick> thankfully i'm going overseas in january so i should be able to stock up
[16:54:25] <nick> i end up coming back with a suitcase full of tuna, beans, various sauces and koolaid
[17:08:42] <Blackmoore> hehe
[17:09:13] <nick> they sell koolaid here now, and like the mtn dew they sell here... it's lies.
[17:09:13] <Blackmoore> i wonder what UOPS would cost to ship that stuff.
[17:09:22] <Blackmoore> ups
[17:09:41] <Blackmoore> koodaid here is something else alright
[17:09:59] <Blackmoore> i know many who used it to dye hair.
[17:10:24] <nick> i'm guessing some of the stuff they use to make real koolaid doesn't comply to EU regulations
[17:10:51] <Blackmoore> well of course.
[17:10:53] <nick> maybe need to import it as hair dye heh
[17:11:21] <nick> i bought some poptarts recently, and there was a carefully placed blue label over the 'good source of vitamins and minerals'
[17:11:29] <Blackmoore> hmm.. that might work. slap on a lable as "DYE product, not meant for human consumtion"
[17:11:29] <nick> which im guessing according to EU/UK law, is also lies
[17:11:58] <Blackmoore> which would also work on the poptarts
[17:12:55] <nick> what would poptarts be though
[17:19:31] <nick> is the problem with seeing the world, find out on all the tasty foods the rest of the world gets all the time
[17:24:29] <Blackmoore> well that depends on where you are.
[17:26:06] <nick> http://www.technologyreview.com
[17:26:40] <Blackmoore> I'm in Buffalo, and here we would push you at the chicken wings (fried and smothered in hot sauce) and beef on weck (roast beef sandwich with horseradish on a kummelweck roll.
[17:27:02] <Blackmoore> and .. http://en.wikipedia.org
[17:27:03] <NetCraft> ^ 04Wiki: 03Beef on weck
[17:27:19] <Blackmoore> ah wikipedia. you dont ever cease to amaze me
[17:27:41] <nick> for all the hate wikipedia gets, it's still damn useful
[17:28:34] <nick> as the wikipedia states, I do recall seeing 'beef on weck' on an Anthony Bourdain episode
[17:29:47] <Blackmoore> I'm not a big fan of the roll. too salty, but as the ledgend has it that was the point
[17:30:33] <Blackmoore> and theres the drop.
[17:30:42] <nick> ?
[17:31:06] <Blackmoore> going to lunch. i'll see the reaction to the Oligarch article when i get back
[17:31:21] <nick> enjoy!
