[01:28:00] <Subsentient> Bytram: Undead gerbils subserviant to Lord Gerbilius, yes
[01:28:12] <Bytram> LOL!
[01:28:39] * Bytram steps back quietly and goes to sit in a corner where he can keep an eye on those critters
[01:28:54] <Subsentient> Bytram: Gerbilius' throne is made of the charred, gnawed bones of the evil. He sends his gerbils to mutilate the wicked and use their bones to grow his chair.
[01:28:56] * cmn32480 loans bytram his flamethrower

[01:31:48] * cmn32480 watches as the nerve gas spewed from is rear turns Lord Gerbilus into a quivering heap of fur
[01:31:58] <Subsentient> :^P
[01:32:11] <Subsentient> Suffice it to say, Gerbilius already smelled worse than your farts. :^)
[01:32:13] * Bytram watches Lord Gerbilus tweak cmn32480's broken nose
[01:32:21] <Subsentient> Like a thousand corpses mixed with extra chunky Jif.

[01:34:48] <Subsentient> No, some blood in the fur though
[01:35:40] * Bytram wonders whose blood it was
[01:35:49] * Subsentient asks the gerbil
[01:36:03] * cmn32480 awaits the answer with baited breath
[01:36:08] <Subsentient> He says it was some bearded guy who had teenage girls in his basement.
[01:36:27] <Subsentient> Damn, those girls gonna need therapy huh...

[01:43:03] <cmn32480> iOS
[01:43:19] <cmn32480> iThink
[01:43:24] <Bytram> that's what I thought, but it looks a little funny. Am certain it is not IOS as that is Cisco's
[01:43:31] <cmn32480> yes
[01:43:38] <Bytram> I'm going with iOS
[01:43:40] <Bytram> thanks
[01:43:44] <cmn32480> I was verry surprised that dind't beget a lawsuit
[01:43:45] <Subsentient> Bytram: iOS is correct.
[01:43:50] <Subsentient> So is a pentagram.
[01:43:51] <Bytram> merci
[01:43:52] <cmn32480> you still editing?
[01:44:09] <Bytram> moi?
[01:44:12] <cmn32480> you are a machine
[01:44:33] <Bytram> the muse is with me lately
[01:44:37] <cmn32480> I'm done for today.
[01:44:47] <cmn32480> with everythign but studying the inside of my eyelids
[01:44:55] <Bytram> nod nod nodding off?
[01:45:13] <cmn32480> xzzzzzzzzactly
[01:45:26] <cmn32480> time for me to go to bed
[01:45:27] <Bytram> before you go, I have a story I'm about to put out but am starting to have second thoughts.
[01:45:43] <Bytram> could you please take a look at: https://soylentnews.org
[01:45:43] <cmn32480> which?
[01:45:44] <GW> ^ 03- SoylentNews User ( https://soylentnews.org )
[01:46:17] <Bytram> and tell me what you think? is is a soyvertisement, or is the concept interesting enough to run with it?
[01:46:17] <cmn32480> OOOO GW got that one wrong
[01:46:28] <Bytram> GW?
[01:46:31] <cmn32480> all that gives me is the story list
[01:46:36] <Bytram> erp
[01:46:36] <cmn32480> the title bot
[01:46:43] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org
[01:46:44] <GW> ^ 03Error
[01:47:00] <Bytram> sorry, my bad
[01:47:30] <Bytram> GW cannot 'see' it as it has no privs -- is essentially an AC looking at the site
[01:47:32] * Subsentient bets it will not take off
[01:48:40] <cmn32480> I don't think that is a Soylvertisement
[01:49:03] <cmn32480> but I agree w/ Subsentient. Pretty unlikely to take off
[01:49:28] <Subsentient> I *HOPE* it flops. Numbers are better for some things, that included.
[01:49:38] <cmn32480> what's with the YouTube link in the dept line?
[01:49:50] <Bytram> click it
[01:50:12] <cmn32480> I'm not gettign RickRolled am I?
[01:50:21] <Bytram> the system would make it much easier to address an envelope
[01:50:23] <Bytram> nope
[01:51:05] <cmn32480> hehe
[01:51:44] * Bytram remembers when that first came out -- it's become a part of local lore whenever anyone asks for directions
[01:51:52] <Bytram> I wonder if anyone else will notice that it is a link
[01:52:05] <cmn32480> probably a few...
[01:52:08] * crutchy likes to rickroll himself occasionally
[01:52:15] <cmn32480> but still time for bed
[01:52:25] <Bytram> sleep well!
[01:52:34] <cmn32480> I get TomJonesed occassionally
[01:52:56] <cmn32480> walk around all day humming "It's not unusual" and thinking about doing the Carlton
[01:53:10] * Bytram imagines cmn32480 having a bunch of women tossing their panties to him on stage
[01:53:31] <cmn32480> 4/1 prank - include a link in every article to some song on youtube guaranteed to get stuck in your head
[01:54:10] <Bytram> crutchy: how would you write the dialect of English that is spoken in Australia? 'strailia?
[01:54:20] <cmn32480> night kids.

[01:59:04] <GW> ^* 03SN Submission by Runaway1956: Hilarious "study" on 'Stralian
[01:59:46] <crutchy> sounds like crap to me, but meh who knows where it come from?
[01:59:55] <crutchy> might as well run it
[02:00:06] <crutchy> let the masses sort it out
[02:00:26] <Bytram> well, I'd rather not *intentionally* put crap on the main page
[02:01:26] <crutchy> most aussies don't actually sound like croc dundee
[02:01:46] <crutchy> so maybe the ones that do are the boozers?
[02:01:54] <Bytram> I've only met a few and concur with that assessment, but there most certainly is a distinct accent
[02:02:35] <crutchy> i only speak it. i don't study it :p
[02:03:22] <crutchy> i personally think accent is an upbringing thing
[02:03:34] <Bytram> nodnod
[02:03:40] <Bytram> here's the note I added:
[02:03:41] <Bytram> From an IRC chat with crutchy (who lives down under) this story is most questionable. I recommend not running it. -Bytram
[02:03:43] <crutchy> cos accents can change
[02:04:04] <crutchy> its only my humble opinion
[02:04:14] <crutchy> i'm nott an expert by any means
[02:04:41] <Bytram> yep; in the course of one week, I found myself in Up-state New York, Maine, and Massachusetts -- though all locations were within at most 300 miles distance, there was a very strong variation in accent
[02:05:23] <Bytram> I cannot imagine what things must be like for people in India or China

[02:07:44] <crutchy> "shrimp on the barbie" lol. nobody says that
[02:07:45] <Bytram> thanks, GW!
[02:07:53] <Bytram> yeah, thought not
[02:08:16] <crutchy> drop bears don't permit it :p
[02:08:23] * Bytram snorts
[02:09:09] <crutchy> "Our forefathers regularly got drunk together and through their frequent interactions unknowingly added an alcoholic slur to our national speech patterns"
[02:09:27] <crutchy> hmm. that kinda seems plausible'ish i guess
[02:09:51] <crutchy> accents gotta evolve somehow
[02:10:31] <Bytram> darn tootin'
[02:11:02] <crutchy> i possibly mistook the story to be about how current generations acquire their accent. this story might be about how it evolved'
[02:11:15] <Bytram> yes, evolution was how I took it
[02:11:23] <crutchy> in which case it might be interesting
[02:11:52] * crutchy keeps reading
[02:12:03] <Bytram> formatting certainly could use some work!
[02:12:49] <crutchy> i vaugely remember reading something on wikipedia about aspects of the australian accent

[02:15:19] <crutchy> funny how both those articles show drunk aussies in the pics
[02:15:59] <crutchy> probably some kind of attack on our credibility to give the government an excuse to ignore us more </tinfoil>
[02:16:15] <Bytram> if you were an editor putting up the story, what would you run? a picture of a shrimp?
[02:16:54] <crutchy> to me it kinda doesn't really seem that newsworthy. sounds more like some university boffin trying to gain some free publicity
[02:17:27] <crutchy> its gotta be outlandish otherwise nobody will care
[02:17:56] <Bytram> goodpoint
[02:18:04] <Bytram> strikes me as a bit of a backchronism
[02:18:48] <crutchy> i'd prolly show a picture of the boffin :D
