[00:26:01] <takyon_> border scum
[00:26:12] <takyon_> and if you don't have a Facebook account, you get put on a watchlist!
[00:26:35] <nick> yup
[00:27:52] <nick> i did my ESTA a while ago now, and they're apparently valid for 2 years i think
[00:29:27] <nick> so i guess between now and then the social media thing will become mandatory, and it'll be even harder explain that i dont have a facebook

[00:36:30] <nick> im trying to drink just the right amount of mtn dew to show my pro-america attitude, but not enough that i could be suspected of wanting to outstay my visa-waiver
[00:41:15] <takyon_> I hope you have some taco bell to go with that dew
[00:41:26] <takyon_> baja blast
[00:41:59] <nick> i did get baja blast with my steakhouse burrito the other day

[01:00:01] <nick> ... '1964 TV movie A Carol for Another Christmas. This was the first in a series of TV films designed to promote the United Nations and sponsored by the Xerox corporation. A Carol for Another Christmas is a remake of A Christmas Carol, only this time the protagonist’s three visions (of Christmases past, present and future) convince him to abandon his isolationist beliefs and embrace the UN’s vision of international affairs.
[01:00:01] <nick> '
[01:01:09] <takyon_> don't forget this multicultural christmas adventure:

[01:01:16] <nick> 'Peter Sellers amazing performance as “Imperial Me” the hyper-individualist cult leader who takes over in the post apocalyptic world with out the UN. We discuss how this fear based vision represents the “Liberal Consensus” of the UN: with out us there will be WWIII.'
[01:02:43] <nick> i have never seen MST3K
[01:02:48] <takyon_> never heard of A Carol for Another Christmas

[01:05:10] <takyon_> you might prefer this one, which is a complete classic:
[01:05:11] <takyon_> https://www.youtube.com
[01:05:13] <exec> └─ 13MST3K - 321 - Santa Claus Conquers the Martians - YouTube
[01:05:44] <nick> it was panned at the time, and is apparently not very good still... but it's interesting to know it exists, it was one of 3 TV movies the UN got produced
[01:06:18] <nick> and they apparently spent about $1m on each of them, which in the 60's was quite a lot for a TV movie
[01:06:45] <takyon_> As of 2015, [A Carol for Another Christmas] has not been released on video, DVD or other home media.
[01:07:19] <nick> i might check out MST3K one day, but i have a concern it will be like SNL... there's a cultural gap that means I just don't appreciate it, and makes me want to throw a brick at my TV.
[01:07:51] <takyon_> there's also a time gap since these were made in the 90s
[01:08:15] <nick> A Carol for Another Christmas is on youtube it seems
[01:08:46] <nick> https://www.youtube.com
[01:08:48] <exec> └─ 13Carol for Another Christmas - YouTube
[01:09:49] <takyon_> I might wait and watch that with my family
[01:17:53] <nick> i'm sure that will go down well
[01:18:44] <takyon_> you can probably watch Santa Claus Conquers the Martians MST3K... a lot of the humor is universal
[01:18:52] <takyon_> you should also check out Cave Dwellers
[01:20:29] <nick> i'll bookmark them to check out in the next couple days
[01:20:46] <nick> tomorrow i'm just going to do what i'm told
[01:20:52] <takyon_> haha
[01:21:59] <nick> i'm a guest here and i dont want to be thrown out to freeze to death through cultural insensitivity
[01:22:54] <takyon_> nicksicle
[01:23:29] <nick> i'm guessing tomorrow of all days an uber ride to civilization is not going to be cheap
[01:26:36] <takyon_> lol
[01:26:38] <takyon_> surge pricing
[01:26:45] <takyon_> more like splurge pricing
[01:29:25] <nick> the nearest 'city' (in my definition at least) is like 200 miles away
[01:29:41] <nick> and in another state
[01:31:38] <takyon_> forget civilization
[01:31:46] <takyon_> live like early man and kill a deer with a rock
[01:32:48] <nick> don't mind that in general, but there's still several feet of snow out there which i'd rather avoid in my primitive living adventures

[03:03:19] <Bytram> so, on christmas eve, what am I doing? reading an article on random number generators, of course! http://cacm.acm.org

[03:07:50] <takyon_> WOW
[03:07:59] <takyon_> an article EXTRACTED FROM THE FUTURE
[03:08:12] <Bytram> ~blame
[03:08:13] * exec points at Bytram
[03:08:46] <Bytram> You think this is something? You should see what happens with new model years for cars!
[03:08:48] <Bytram> ;)
[03:09:09] <mrpg> wow good on both accounts
[03:09:21] * TheMightyBuzzard yawns
[03:09:21] * MrPlow flips a Skittle into TheMightyBuzzard's gaping mouth
[03:09:38] <Bytram> mrpg: okay, now I am confused. what's good now?
[03:10:10] <mrpg> the article and the time travel.
[03:10:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> gratings and salivations, edity folks. may satan claws not fill your stockings with anything unfortunate tonight.
[03:10:47] <Bytram> oh, okay... now I get it.
[03:11:12] * Bytram decides to walk alround barefoot tonight
[03:11:40] <mrpg> hi

[03:12:12] <Bytram> atlantic time zone?
[03:12:29] <mrpg> yes utc-4
[03:12:53] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:13:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> that's just showing off, trying to one-up eastern
[03:13:18] <Bytram> wich 3-ups western
[03:13:41] <mrpg> talking about satan, I'm watching inferno with tom hanks. Not _with_ him, he left an hour ago to go home with his family.
[03:13:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> only because they're all hippies and too stoned to get out of bed at a reasonable hour.
[03:13:52] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: and a cheerful and not too snowy holiday for you, too!
[03:14:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> sposed to be nice fishing weather in the morning. mid-60s and it just rained all day.
[03:14:50] <Bytram> hmmm, fresh food heading to the lakes -- hope they are biting for ya!
[03:15:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> have to see how quick my coffee kicks in cause by 10am the wind will be too strong for my boat to be out on the lake.
[03:16:11] <Bytram> too strong? how so? risk of tipping over... or too much head wind to allow making it back?
[03:16:21] <Bytram> or... other?
[03:24:52] <takyon_> hi
[03:27:43] <charon> lo
[03:28:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, little flat-bottomed jon boats don't do well with the waves a 15mph wind kicks up in that lake.
[03:30:58] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:31:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> normally that ain't a worry but with storms before and storms after tomorrow the winds are gonna be high most the day.
[03:31:50] <Bytram> ummm, no, I don't get it. what kind of problem would it cause?
[03:32:01] <Bytram> rick of tipping over? or just not very manageable?
[03:32:05] <Bytram> *risk
[03:32:16] <Bytram> *maneuverable
[03:32:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> risk of waves topping the sides of the boat.
[03:32:52] <charon> good evening all
[03:32:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> heyas
[03:33:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> or flipping it too i spose.
[03:33:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> flat bottom boats are especially tippy.
[03:33:37] <charon> but they do make the rockin world go round
[03:33:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> indeed. at least my bit of it.
[03:33:54] <Bytram> strange! I'd think they were more stable.
[03:34:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> newp, the more pointy-downy the hull is the more stable it is.
[03:34:56] * Bytram thinks back to the countless hours spent in canoes as a teen... the flattish-bottomed ones were more stable.
[03:35:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> the flatter it is the more you can ignore things like stumps and such in the water though.
[03:35:16] <Bytram> true that.
[03:35:25] * Bytram offers a couple leeboards to TheMightyBuzzard
[03:36:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> i thought about putting outriggers on it but couldn't come up with a good design that would be removable for transportation.
[03:37:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> anywho, yall have a merry merry. ima get some sleeps.
[03:37:33] <Bytram> pipes lashed across the gunwales, nested pipes within that attach to outriggers; use through pins to set amount of extension
