[00:00:00] * juggs invites hell to handbag
[00:00:18] <nick> i was amazed to read some comments the other day on a mainstream news site... people cheering the collapse of citylink, and the loss of thousands of jobs because citylink provided a poor service
[00:00:25] <nick> so their delivery drivers deserve to lose their jobs
[00:00:51] <juggs> replace the fuckers with robots!
[00:00:59] <nick> corporate success = management doing a good job.... corporate failure = employees didnt work hard enough
[00:01:34] <nick> lol
[00:01:40] <nick> how goes things, juggs?
[00:04:16] <juggs> hmm... this is #editorial isn't it.... not sure these discussions fit here... unless this became Soylent Anarchy.... that said, no reason we couldn't have anarchy.soylentnews.org as a nexus once we get that cert sorted.
[00:06:03] <juggs> nick, things are fine for me. Just damn tired and on the way to flake out for the night. Hope your Christmas was cheery :)
[00:06:59] <nick> All is well here, take it easy good sir
[00:09:22] <juggs> Aye - one last run of the spreadsheets tomorrow to make sure I didn't miss something before year end. Then I can look at something other than numbers. Who knows, I might have a bright idea! Unlikely. Eh, need to sleep either way.
[00:12:48] <Blackmoore> good luck Juggs..
[00:12:55] <Blackmoore> we're all counting on you

[14:45:24] <janrinok> hi guys
[15:22:52] <nick> hi janrinok
[15:23:59] <janrinok> hi n1 / nick
[15:24:22] <nick> how goes things?
[15:24:39] <janrinok> not too bad thx, and you?
[15:25:17] <nick> cant complain
[15:25:45] <janrinok> Of course you can - but nobody will listen if my experience is anything to go by :)
[15:27:09] <nick> heh, too true
[15:27:31] -!- Tachyon has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[15:29:43] <nick> need to do some shopping but outside seems too cold and horrible
[15:30:30] <janrinok> Quite a heavy frost here too - in the shade it hasn't even tried to thaw.
[15:37:55] <nick> time to hibernate i think heh
[15:49:03] <nick> this can of tuna is a mystery, i dont know what im going to find inside :/
[15:53:36] <janrinok> er, tuna?
[15:55:08] <nick> you'd think so
[15:55:22] <nick> but this is a foreign, non-english labeled can of apparently 'hot tuna'
[15:55:23] <janrinok> otherwise it is not a can of tuna....
[15:56:08] <nick> if there's no tuna in it, i will be surprised
[15:56:11] <janrinok> I've never seen a hot tuna - is it twerking, wearing a skimpy t-shirt or simply well-tanned?
[15:56:16] <nick> but it's what else could be in it...
[15:56:20] <nick> lol
[15:56:24] <janrinok> chyili
[15:56:27] <janrinok> chili!
[15:56:35] <nick> that was some very odd mental images you presented me with there
[15:56:51] <janrinok> stick around until I start drinking...
[15:57:03] <nick> heh
[15:58:08] <janrinok> I'm changing the timings on some stories to suit the size of the list
[15:58:51] <nick> ok
[15:59:04] <nick> i will hunt for some stories in a while
[15:59:28] <nick> after investigating my can of mystery and a visit to the shops
[16:00:19] <janrinok> don't go out without telling me what you find in the can.
[16:00:49] <nick> just about to find out...
[16:01:19] <janrinok> good luck, be strong
[16:01:37] <nick> a can of little squares of tuna in oil
[16:02:32] <janrinok> ah, the old square tuna, bread for escaping through the holes in fishing nets....
[16:02:40] <janrinok> bred!
[16:03:08] <nick> http://www.miamz.fr
[16:03:25] <nick> it's neatly packed squares of that, including the little plastic fork
[16:03:37] <janrinok> don't eat the fork
[16:04:07] <nick> http://www.miamz.fr
[16:04:13] <janrinok> ...it doesn't look particularly appetizing
[16:04:29] <nick> well, it perhaps looks better than what i was expecting
[16:04:38] <janrinok> but I don't suppose the tuna is too pleased either
[16:04:57] <nick> i did some searching online for it yesterday, and the company that makes it also makes: http://4.bp.blogspot.com
[16:05:15] <nick> which was the closest thing i could find information on
[16:05:27] <janrinok> and you still went ahead and opened it? A brave man walks amongst us...
[16:05:45] <nick> understand why there was some mystery involved now? :p
[16:06:00] <janrinok> mystery or plain old fear?
[16:06:08] <nick> maybe both
[16:07:07] <nick> it smelsl like tuna, which is something
[16:07:10] <nick> smells*
[16:07:41] <janrinok> lots of things smell like tuna - but they are not all good...
[16:09:54] <nick> not helping!
[16:10:18] <janrinok> well, you haven't died of anything yet, that is a good sign

[16:42:56] <nick> it's not bad!
[20:39:16] -!- janrinok has quit [Quit: leaving]
[20:56:35] <nick> officially a no news day.
[22:18:26] <Blackmoore> *shrug*
[22:18:29] <Blackmoore> happens
[22:19:12] <nick> no news is good news
[22:25:31] <Blackmoore> better that EF in the main irc room.
[22:27:44] <nick> that whole conversation seriously... not trying to be on a moral crusade but i assumed the SN community was above "haha look at those stupid and poor people"
[22:42:44] <Blackmoore> eh, i cant really deny the existance of white trash.
[22:42:59] <Blackmoore> it really is different than poor
[22:43:20] <Blackmoore> it poor and really happy to be poor and ignorant
[22:43:35] <Blackmoore> it's really fraightening
[22:44:17] <nick> i dont disagree, but to me thats the point... there are complex social issues which are generally ignored, because we can exploit some ignorant social groups for the entertainment of different social groups
[22:44:26] <nick> for 'entertainment'
[22:44:33] <nick> which just baffles me
[22:44:37] <Blackmoore> yeah, that's deplorable
[22:44:57] <Blackmoore> and why i'm not even reading the main channel.
[22:46:01] <nick> not a bad idea
[22:57:36] <Blackmoore> sadly i am trying to work. and read tv tropes..
[22:58:39] <nick> one assumes those two things are unrelated and conflicting
[23:00:30] <Blackmoore> yes
[23:00:45] <Blackmoore> tropes is painfully addictive like wikipedia
[23:03:54] <Blackmoore> aw f it. I'm gonna go home. try to do this crap tomorrow.
[23:04:26] <nick> heh
[23:04:28] <nick> take it easy
[23:08:47] <Blackmoore> gnight
