[01:51:46] * MrPlow smakes exec upside the head with an ugly stick
[01:51:48] <Bytram> cmn32480: !! wb!
[01:52:09] * cmn32480 logs into the office to fix ecxec
[01:53:35] <cmn32480> looks lkike he died 5 days ago...
[01:53:45] <cmn32480> why dind't anybody send me an email or somesuch?
[01:54:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, cause we didn't care that much
[01:54:13] <Bytram> very inconvenient without 'em, but we surviuved and you needed a brerak

[01:54:33] -!- exec has quit [Changing host]
[01:54:33] -!- exec [exec!~exec@crutchys.brothel] has joined #editorial
[01:55:00] <cmn32480> takes 30 seconds to bring him back alive
[01:55:13] <cmn32480> ah well
[01:55:52] <cmn32480> and I get to go mia again tomorrow for frickin' jury duty
[01:56:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> oooh, fun
[01:56:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> they never call me. i dunno why.
[01:57:22] <cmn32480> registe4red voter/
[01:58:42] <cmn32480> who knows... some of us are just lucky I guess /sarcasm
[01:59:15] <chromas> Maybe it'll be a thybercrime
[01:59:28] <chromas> you can pretend you don't know much about computers to get on the jury
[01:59:32] <cmn32480> county court? unlikely
[02:01:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> i mostly wanna fuck with the lawyers. there's no way they'd ever actually select me for a jury.
[02:02:42] <cmn32480> lol
[02:02:45] <takyon> i have never been selected for questioning yet but I would definitely talk about jury nullification as soon as they sat me down
[02:02:49] <cmn32480> I'm jsut yer average white guy
[02:02:58] <cmn32480> pretty middel of the road...
[02:03:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, troof
[02:03:47] <takyon> "Mr. takyon, do you believe you could judge someone impartially? Even a rapist?"
[02:03:52] <takyon> "Sure. Jury nullification."
[02:04:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> if they ever actually did put me on a jury, i'd get held in contempt for asking the judge why he's outright lying to us in the jury instructions that say we can only find on matters of fact and not on matters of law
[02:05:05] <Bytram> jury nullification is not very useful if you are not on a jury to use it.
[02:05:15] <takyon> that's the idea bytram
[02:05:24] <takyon> unless one of us here actually wants to get on the jury
[02:05:31] <takyon> you be the judge
[02:05:58] <Bytram> me, i'd resond truthfully if asked, but would not volunteer JN
[02:06:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> very first supreme court chief justice john jay said so in Georgia v. Brailsford
[02:06:33] <takyon> Fnord666, you missed an obvious autism merge
[02:07:35] <takyon> looks like it really is 2 different stories though
[02:07:37] <Bytram> having been subject to our criminal justice system through no fault of my own, I would surely prefer to have on my jury people who have a clue and are serious about seeking the facts and justice in the case.
[02:08:19] <cmn32480> ~tell janrinok pbpbtpbtpbtpbtpbtptbpttttt!
[02:08:27] <Bytram> I so want to contyinue this discussiomn, but I am asleep on my feet (well, seat... whatevah)
[02:08:31] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[02:08:33] * exec sneakily culturally enriches a ⅓ cup of rocket sauce with cmn32480
[02:08:36] <Bytram> ~gnight takyon
[02:08:37] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[02:08:37] * exec emphatically piles an NTFS volume of scripts on takyon
[02:08:39] * exec arrogantly pilfers a spoon of pocket rocket from bytram
[02:08:40] <Bytram> ~gnight TheMightyBuzzard
[02:08:42] * exec implicitly kipes a dong of toaster leavins from TheMightyBuzzard
[02:08:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> ~gnight Bytram
[02:08:56] * exec cantankerously reverse-engineers a caravan of granola from Bytram
[02:09:02] <takyon> night
[02:09:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> same thing
[02:09:13] <takyon> too lazy to hit the tilde key
[02:09:16] * Bytram wants his granola back!
[02:09:23] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:09:30] <Bytram> laters
[02:33:17] * cmn32480 finds it comforting that hew was only mentioned once in his 5 day absence... and that was because of exec
[03:41:52] <charon> i wanted to send you an email, cmn32480, but they wouldn't give me your address. something about thinking i'd sign you up for porn
[03:55:11] * cmn32480 wishes getting decent porn was that easy
[03:58:38] <charon> did you have a good trip?
[03:59:01] <cmn32480> it was fun, long drive but all in all pretty good
[03:59:07] <cmn32480> going Dogsledding was pretty neat
[03:59:20] <charon> really? that does sound cool
[03:59:41] <cmn32480> and not really tremendously expensive either
[04:00:34] <cmn32480> certainly different
[04:01:58] <charon> i had never heard you could do that.
[04:02:21] <charon> obviously the dogs did not turn back and maul you, so it must be safe
[04:02:44] <cmn32480> yeah
[04:02:52] <cmn32480> there are companies that take you out
[04:03:00] <cmn32480> team of 6 dogs for me and the wife
[04:03:05] <cmn32480> 4 other sleds in the group
[04:03:08] <cmn32480> 2 with guides
[04:03:35] <cmn32480> one guide leads
[04:03:42] <cmn32480> and the dogs all follow him
[04:04:39] <charon> so you don't get to hold the whip and say HYA!
[04:05:02] <cmn32480> no whip... but I did get to drive the sled adn control the brakes
[04:05:38] <cmn32480> it was cool
[04:05:48] <cmn32480> actually.. it was fuck all cold
[04:05:52] <charon> hehe
[04:05:55] <cmn32480> Saturday was -9F
[04:05:59] <cmn32480> -19C
[04:06:16] <charon> some places actually get weather in winter time
[04:07:28] <cmn32480> inorite? wtf?
[04:10:37] <cmn32480> shoudl I assume that y'all didn't mioss me?
[04:10:52] <charon> a little bit. but we missed exec more
[04:11:47] <cmn32480> that I woudl believe
[04:11:57] <charon> it actually got a little hairy, because really only me and fnord were putting out stories
[04:11:59] <cmn32480> you coild have emailed my SN.com acct
[04:12:06] <cmn32480> I saw that too
[04:12:09] <cmn32480> thank you
[04:12:16] <charon> you're welcome
[04:12:44] <charon> i deleted a bunch, and we were down to 5 in the sub queue at one point
[04:13:17] * cmn32480 is not ashamed to say he didn't even look in knowing the site was in mostly capable hands
[04:13:33] <charon> so far my guesses on which would be the worst/best politics sub-of-the-day have been pretty good, so the crap is contained
[04:13:55] <cmn32480> is it as bad as I feared it would be?
[04:14:21] <charon> yeah, a whole lot of name-calling. but it's not spilliing out elsewhere
[04:14:49] <cmn32480> that is a plus at least
[04:15:08] <charon> JR thinks there are more pol subs than usual, perhaps people trying to get to be the sub of the say
[04:15:50] <charon> but some days i don't even do one. i only put one out if it's marginally sane and looks like it could potentially be a fruitful discussion
[04:17:27] <cmn32480> so it is as bad as we feared
[04:17:58] <charon> maybe. i don't see it, but he has far more experience to judge than i do
[04:19:01] <cmn32480> as long as we keep it to 1 or so per day I think we can keep politics from overwhelming the rest of it
[04:20:22] <charon> yea. i see it as a kind of sacrifice to keep it all focused there
[04:21:11] <cmn32480> yeah
[04:21:40] <cmn32480> I'm done... can't keep my eyes open any more
[04:21:44] <cmn32480> time for bed
[04:21:48] <charon> ok, sleep well
[04:21:50] <cmn32480> get some rest charon
[04:21:55] <cmn32480> ~gnight charon
[04:21:56] <charon> ~gnight cmn32480
[04:21:57] * exec deliciously imagines a photograph of chicken fingers with charon
[04:21:58] * exec whole-heartedly crossbreeds yo mama's asscrack of buttered toast with cmn32480
[04:22:14] <charon> ... i win?
[04:22:20] <cmn32480> I think so
[04:49:38] <Fnord666> howdy charon
[04:49:49] <charon> hiyo fnord
[04:50:03] <charon> doing alright?
[04:50:50] <Fnord666> i am. thanks for asking. yourself? HAve a good day off?
[04:51:32] <charon> yep, pretty ok. had a nice evening with the kids. i impressed them by knowing things grownups aren't supposed to know about
[04:51:40] <Fnord666> lol
[04:54:14] <charon> is it still snowing by you?
[04:54:29] <Fnord666> I wasn't sure on the not that I know uf.
[04:54:58] <Fnord666> nope. 56 F here
[04:55:09] <Fnord666> is it snowing there?
[04:55:28] <charon> weird. no, but it's been really cold the last few days
[04:55:29] <Fnord666> no snow in our forcast intil SAt
[04:55:43] <Fnord666> cmn must be back
[04:55:46] <charon> heheh
[04:55:56] <charon> that must be it
[04:57:23] <Fnord666> i was going to say that i wasn't sure about keeping the first line in the Big Hack story
[04:58:14] <Fnord666> not big on even giving the comment any visibility
[04:58:56] <charon> i try not to mess with people's written copy except for clarity. but i see your point, i was waffling too.
[04:59:42] <Fnord666> yeah, that was my hesitation as well.
[04:59:49] <charon> it probably stands fine without that line
[05:00:12] <Fnord666> I'm never too sure how much we should meddle, even if it's a mess.
[05:00:37] <charon> i admit, his own comment in that thread makes me feel warmly towards him
[05:00:53] <Fnord666> Do we rewrite or just reject a hypothetical story as being written by an illiterate 5th grader.
[05:02:00] <charon> i won't say the poster's name, but i have just ignored a sub for a loooong time because it was written so badly
[05:02:29] <charon> eventually someone else posted it with no edits, but at least my name wasn't on it
[05:04:55] <Fnord666> I think I know the one
[05:05:32] <charon> it was no an OO production
[05:07:18] <charon> the radio shack department is so bad...
[05:08:18] <Fnord666> department?
[05:08:43] <charon> something about insoldervency
[05:08:54] <Fnord666> didn't like that?
[05:09:06] <Fnord666> solder - insolvency?
[05:09:09] <charon> i mean bad as in good
[05:09:19] <Fnord666> ah ok.
[05:09:24] <charon> like groaning from mental pain good
[05:09:44] <Fnord666> just the way I like them
[05:10:41] <Fnord666> oops
[05:10:48] <Fnord666> tried to load a submission
[05:10:51] <Fnord666> "Internal Server Error"
[05:11:03] <charon> i blame TMB
[05:11:11] <Fnord666> ~blame

[05:53:35] <charon> ~gnight Fnord666
