[01:36:14] <Bytram> #submit https://segwit2x.github.io Be prepared.
[01:36:15] <MrPlow> Submitting. There is a mandatory delay, please be patient.
[01:36:40] <MrPlow> Submission successful. https://soylentnews.org
[01:39:17] <Bytram> Fnord666: Good day, fine sir!
[01:39:33] <Fnord666> Good day to you as well!
[01:39:49] <Fnord666> You get some sleep?
[01:39:52] <Bytram> noticed you 2nding stories, so I thought I'd say hi... Hi!
[01:40:08] <Bytram> yuppers!
[01:40:17] <Fnord666> Good.
[01:40:24] <Bytram> helped a lot... caught 1 2 hour nap this pm.... wondrous!
[01:40:50] <Fnord666> even better then.
[01:40:54] <Fnord666> nap++
[01:40:54] <Bender> karma - nap: 2
[01:40:57] <Bytram> nod nod
[01:41:39] <Fnord666> Anything interesting going on?
[01:42:40] <Bytram> not at *this* moment...
[01:43:27] <Fnord666> nice teaser...
[01:43:46] <Bytram> except, there's a couple in a nearby apartment... they get along, ummm, really well every night and she's kinda... vocal... and they are at it again =)
[01:45:26] <Fnord666> rofl
[01:45:41] <Bytram> yuppers
[01:45:49] <Bytram> she sounds pretty sweet, actually
[01:47:14] <Fnord666> Ah the good old days of a common wall.
[01:48:24] <Bytram> actually, they're mostly around a corner of an 'El', but open windows don't help with privacy, funny that.
[01:50:03] <Fnord666> no, no they don't
[01:50:50] <Fnord666> Got a line of sight for a laser pointer that makes shapes on the wall?
[01:50:54] <Bytram> I was talking about the mechanical windows, not the computer ones, but there is that, too.
[01:50:58] <Bytram> ROFL!
[01:51:13] * Bytram would never do that
[01:51:31] * Fnord666 wouldn't either.
[01:52:07] <Bytram> would be a fun thought experiement
[01:52:54] <Fnord666> a persistence of vision projection on the wall that says "We can hear you" would be fun.
[01:53:17] <Fnord666> or better yet, running commentary.
[01:53:19] <Bytram> "You are not alone'
[01:53:40] <Bytram> or, more simply, just recording the sounds, and playing it back when they are done.
[01:54:19] <Bytram> or, just accept, they're randy 'kids' and having a fun time, and not rain on their parade, eh?
[01:55:46] <Fnord666> Well sure, there's that I guess.... :)
[01:56:01] <Fnord666> or place one of these just outside the window.
[01:56:03] <Fnord666> http://www.instructables.com
[01:56:04] <upstart> ^ 03Miniature Beeping Circuit Prank: 6 Steps (with Pictures)
[01:56:16] <Bytram> umm, 3rd floor?
[01:57:36] <Fnord666> That's what makes it a challenge!
[01:58:25] <Bytram> guess I'm not, umm, 'up' to it.
[01:58:45] <Fnord666> Ok, never mind. I don't want to read any headlines about you falling off a drainpipe
[01:58:48] * Bytram thinks that might be a triple entendre
[01:59:05] <Fnord666> with a 1/2 twist!
[01:59:23] <Fnord666> level of difficulty - 3.2
[01:59:30] <Bytram> in the layout position, of course!
[02:00:20] <Fnord666> goes without saying
[02:01:39] <Bytram> Tell that to HER! Oh! Oooooh. Mmmmmmmmmgggg. OOh!
[02:02:25] <Fnord666> ROFLMAO
[02:02:46] <Bytram> much as I joke about it, I'm happy for them... hope their relationship can keep up, after the 'bloom isoff the rose', so to speak/write.
[02:03:15] <Fnord666> Fair point.
[02:03:31] <Bytram> out of curiousity, do you know Greek?
[02:04:07] <Fnord666> I do not. Never had an occasion to need it.
[02:04:20] <Bytram> Philo / Agape / Eros / Euda (pardon my spelling / translation)
[02:04:35] <Bytram> philo - like in brotherly love -- think Philadeplphia
[02:04:52] <Bytram> Agape - Deep, intimate love
[02:05:04] <Bytram> Eros - erotica / sexual pleasure
[02:05:30] <Bytram> Euda - total and complete intimacy... 'the two will become one'
[02:05:48] <Bytram> I hope they are not confusing erotic love with the others.
[02:13:40] * Bytram checks the HoF and notes that only 15 more comments would move the Charlottesville story from 4th to 3rd place
[02:14:15] <Bytram> I figured we'd get 150-200 comments, but I didn't expect THAT much discussion!
[02:14:55] <Fnord666> Wow it did move up a lot
[02:15:37] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:16:05] * Bytram is *almost* tempted to go in and stir things up... but professionalism precludes my doing so.
[02:16:27] <Bytram> now, if I could nudge TMB in that general direction... ;)
[02:16:43] <Fnord666> Like waving a red flag
[02:17:04] <Bytram> el toro
[02:17:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> what's this on the bottom of my back? why it's MY ASS...
[02:17:22] <Fnord666> lol
[02:17:44] <Fnord666> evening TMB
[02:18:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh i give up playing with that story. when i think there are too many unthinking trolls, it's pretty bad.
[02:18:04] <Bytram> ~gnight TheMightyBuzzard
[02:18:06] * exec diabolically launches an F cup of rum ham toward TheMightyBuzzard
[02:18:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> ~gnight Bytram
[02:18:16] * exec single-handedly generates a small script that substitutes a heap of bellybutton lint for Bytram
[02:18:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> fair exchange =P
[02:18:25] <Bytram> ~gnight Fnord666
[02:18:27] <Fnord666> ~gnight Bytram
[02:18:28] * exec mistakenly hallucinates a rusty trombone of dag with Fnord666
[02:18:29] * exec single-candidly steals a potion of bean dip from Bytram
[02:18:53] * TheMightyBuzzard has a case of bean dip and is willing to share
[02:18:59] <Bytram> bean dip and lint... certainly a nutritious meal, right?
[02:19:34] * Bytram wonders how to form the lint into a tortilla
[02:19:58] <Fnord666> First you need to write a grant proposal...
[02:20:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> i had a dog once that would eat pocket lint if you gave it to her while she was begging your dinner
[02:20:31] <Bytram> and would come back for more, no doubt!
[02:20:56] <Bytram> on that note, have a good night everyone... catch ya laters!
[02:21:07] <Fnord666> good night
[02:21:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> nite ol man
[02:39:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> Fnord666, four or five new subs what might make your selection easier. noticed there were a bunch of shitty political ones and not much else.
[02:40:20] <Fnord666> thanks. the sub queue looks like a septic tank ATM
[02:41:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, i figured you guys could use some non-shit subs. i ran out of rss items though so that's all from me tonight.
[02:47:44] <Fnord666> much appreciated.
[02:48:25] <Fnord666> gonna need to take the toilet brush to the queue soon
[02:59:37] <Fnord666> time to call it a night. Good night TMB
[03:00:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> Fnord666, ditto. laters man.

[23:05:10] <takyon> capitalized headline

[23:10:59] <takyon> i did it
