[00:44:03] <takyon> posed

[02:59:25] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: the link you posted here is MUCH better than the Mr Plow one...
[02:59:49] <Bytram> am gonna update the story
[03:00:53] <Bytram> takyon: just saw you were in the black moon story; prolly doing what I was about to (replace with stuff from TMB's recommended alternate: http://www.space.com) pls let me know when you are done with the story.
[03:00:54] <Nacho> ^✓ 03Black Moon 2016: What It Is (and Why You Can't See It)
[03:01:07] <takyon> i finished
[03:01:11] <Bytram> k
[03:01:12] <takyon> just nuked the crap link outta there
[03:01:14] <Bytram> tnx
[03:01:45] <Bytram> well, it's a crap story, too.
[03:02:09] <Bytram> the provided def of a 'black moon' in *this* story, is exactly the same as the def for a new moon!
[03:02:18] <Bytram> read: http://www.space.com
[03:02:19] <Nacho> ^✓ 03Black Moon 2016: What It Is (and Why You Can't See It)
[03:03:19] <Bytram> analogous to a 'blue moon' (two FULL moons in one month), it claims a 'black moon ' is two NEW moons in one calendar month.
[03:12:12] <Bytram> updated -- Added part of explanation from space.com article
[03:12:30] <Bytram> 2nding UN Space mission
[03:14:10] <Bytram> 2nding hackers probing election systems
[03:16:56] <takyon> i basically subbed all those
[03:17:06] <Bytram> so I'm seeing
[03:17:36] <Bytram> Tachyon: question for ya wrt wording:
[03:17:36] <Bytram> An anonymous coward Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official has told several
[03:17:48] <Bytram> sounds a bit awkward....
[03:18:09] <Bytram> An Anonymous Coward at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has told several
[03:18:40] <Bytram> does that still capture the meaning you intended?.
[03:18:58] <Bytram> or, would this be better:
[03:19:25] <Bytram> A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official (aka Anonymous Coward) has told several
[03:20:16] <Bytram> oh, i see now... the 'coward' just kind of slipped in
[03:20:37] <Bytram> An anonymous coward Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official
[03:20:41] <Bytram> should be:
[03:20:49] <Bytram> An anonymous Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official
[03:20:59] <takyon> hang on
[03:21:07] <takyon> well I was being mean when I wrote it
[03:21:09] <takyon> that's for sure
[03:21:13] <Bytram> too late, just saved the change
[03:21:32] <takyon> it's ok. it's a judgment call
[03:21:41] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:22:38] <Bytram> in general, I *try* to even-handed in the stories and *try* to save my snark for the comments... sometimes a bit slips though (most often in the dept) IOW, I understand
[03:22:51] <Bytram> 2nding trademarks
[03:23:00] <takyon> yeah I was mocking the fact that it was yet another anonymous high ranking official contacting news agencies
[03:23:21] <takyon> The Intercept made a blog based on this, called Unofficial Sources or something
[03:24:29] <Bytram> so, a way to gauge the reaction without risking blow back
[03:24:47] <takyon> or officially sanctioned leaking would be another way to put it
[03:25:17] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:31:28] <takyon> you're gonna be D-E-A-D!
[03:32:19] <Bytram> kinda sure of that, yep. Haven't met anyone who has lived forever.
[03:32:29] <takyon> alcohol is so much worse than so many of the schedule 1 drugs it's scary
[03:32:41] <takyon> I have drunks near me right now
[03:34:12] <Bytram> like other drugs, alcohol may have wildly differing effects depending on the person, amount, and even seemingly at random -- one day, two drinks are fine but on another day two drinks and off to the loony bin!
[03:34:31] <takyon> here is your imperial IPA sir
[03:34:47] <Bytram> would love to chat, but have a relatively early day tomorrow and need to hit the sack shortly.
[03:35:08] <takyon> night
[03:35:14] <Bytram> I apprecaite the offer, but quite honestly, I prefer Root Beer.
[03:35:18] <Bytram> =)
[03:35:26] <Bytram> and many thanks for the story submissions!!!!
[03:36:11] <takyon> hard root beer and soda is a growing market segment
[03:36:28] <Bytram> well, call me a
[03:36:29] <takyon> such as Not Your Father's, Coney Island, and probably something else I'm forgetting
[03:36:34] <Bytram> 'softee', then!
