[00:16:42] <n1> has there been any media hype for it?
[00:17:02] <takyon> what's going on
[00:17:33] <SirFinkus> two black guys got shot in my town
[00:17:42] <SirFinkus> there was a rather large protest last night
[00:18:26] <SirFinkus> they say they're going to march to the cop's house tonight

[00:19:30] <chromas> Olympia. So if the riot then it's just a sport
[00:19:44] <SirFinkus> this one is retarded, very few details about the actual incident have been made public, people just jump to conclusions
[00:19:48] <chromas> "Riot of Olympic proportions"
[00:20:33] <SirFinkus> I'd go take pictures, but it's raining and I can't be assed

[00:21:40] <SirFinkus> they stole corona and a watermelon
[00:21:42] <SirFinkus> no comment
[00:23:48] * chromas rofls off his stool
[00:24:35] <SirFinkus> the good news is both the guys that got shot are expected to survive
[00:25:03] <chromas> wait it's only in the 60s there?
[00:25:10] <SpallsHurgenson> blame Obama and his banning of military-grade weapons for police; if it wasn't for that, those guys would be dead!
[00:25:10] <chromas> doesn't sound like rioting weather
[00:25:32] <SirFinkus> apparently it's going to clear up in a few hours
[00:25:34] * SpallsHurgenson is practicing being a republican nutcase :)
[00:25:45] <SirFinkus> we're used the the rain, it isn't bad
[00:25:51] <chromas> SpallsHurgenson: do you love guns and god?
[00:26:04] <SirFinkus> I just don't want to ride my bike in it, or drive my car downtown and get it vandalized if shit does go down
[00:26:24] <chromas> it's not that it's rainy, but my understanding is traditionally you need hot weather for hood riots

[00:30:51] <chromas> yeah
[00:30:51] <SirFinkus> yes
[00:31:02] <chromas> the good washington
[00:31:08] <Bytram> heh. Bender is a little slow on the uptake there. that story already got posted and then marked as NOT display so as to give credit to the poll submitter.
[00:31:09] * SpallsHurgenson clicks the poll link: "Nothing for you to see here. Please move along."
[00:31:23] <SirFinkus> I drove through the protests yesterday, I think I saw 2 black people
[00:31:28] <SirFinkus> which is kind of funny
[00:31:34] <chromas> When did Bender start announcing polls anyhow?
[00:32:07] <SirFinkus> I thought there was some kind of huge shitstorm over the hugo awards
[00:32:19] <SirFinkus> something about puppies

[00:33:47] <Bytram> well, there's a way to submit a poll and for us to run it as a *story* that is linked to a poll, but I don't think I've ever seen that done before.

[00:37:33] <SirFinkus> oh, for brain hurt, follow #olympiashooting on the twitter
[00:37:34] <Bytram> crutchy: did you get a chance to see "Ex Machina" ??
[00:37:48] <crutchy> yeah i saw it online last week
[00:37:49] <Bytram> SirFinkus: no thanks
[00:37:52] <crutchy> pretty good
[00:37:54] * Bytram doesn't tweet.
[00:38:17] <Bytram> online? ripped or payperview or somesuch?
[00:38:54] <crutchy> i dunno. prolly. viooz.ac
[00:39:07] <crutchy> i think the mpaa keep chasing them but they just keep changing tld :p
[00:39:34] <Bytram> Ava's scenes in the first couple of 'examinations' were absolutely mesmerising
[00:39:49] <crutchy> she's a hottie
[00:40:28] <crutchy> if you're gunna make a robot, why not make it female, and if you're gunna make a female robot, why not make it fuckable
[00:40:34] <Bytram> embodied thoughtfulness, a certain naivite (sp?), and inosense (sp?) all at the same time that I found spellbinding.
[00:41:44] <Bytram> OTOH, it seemed that she lacked an ability to move without conscious effort, yet the earlier 'robot' kyoko could dance up a storm... had trouble reconciling those two things.
[00:42:04] <Bytram> attributed it to artistic license
[00:42:29] <crutchy> best part was when she left that tosser locked up in the house while she walked out :)
[00:42:30] <Bytram> other than that, found myself reflecting on the story for the next 24 hours straight.
[00:42:43] <crutchy> oops. prolly should have obfuscated that
[00:43:04] <Bytram> whatdayamean tosser? I thought he played that roll rather well.
[00:43:05] <SpallsHurgenson> argh! spoilers!
[00:43:07] <chromas> crutchy: encrypt it while you still can
[00:43:08] <crutchy> 00,00best part was when she left that tosser locked up in the house while she walked out :)
[00:43:11] <Bytram> lol
[00:43:12] <ciri> i missed it, what are you laughing at? >.>
[00:43:27] * Bytram offers dark glasses to SpallsHurgenson
[00:43:32] <crutchy> he played the role of tosser quite well
[00:43:44] <arti> salad tosser!
[00:43:58] <Bytram> ~define tosser
[00:44:11] <SpallsHurgenson> one who tosses :)
[00:44:13] <crutchy> oops
[00:44:22] -!- exec [exec!~exec@utioner/T-800/BeVeryAfraid] has joined #Soylent
[00:44:22] <arti> tosser is used like douchbag
[00:44:45] <arti> inward.
[00:45:14] <Bytram> I get the concept from the context, but I didn't see him that way.
[00:45:23] <crutchy> i got a little .start macro that does things like join #soylent, but i gotta run it separately. its just in case the bot goes birko on startup so it doesn't go birko in #soylent
[00:45:34] <SpallsHurgenson> toss is synonymous to masturbation, isn't it?
[00:45:50] <arti> i think you're thinking of wanker
[00:45:51] <Bytram> Struck me as being a pawn in a horribly complicated game of dog-and-cat-andmouse
[00:45:54] <crutchy> i saw him as a condescending slef-absorbed pussywhipped little boy
[00:46:06] <SpallsHurgenson> I think they are the same. Let's ask the Internet.
[00:46:20] <Bytram> ~fight wanker tosser
[00:46:32] <crutchy> !fight wanker vs tosser
[00:46:33] <ciri> By results on Google.com/intl/en: wanker beats tosser by 6,700,000 to 624,000!
[00:46:47] <crutchy> apparently there are more wankers on the internets than tossers
[00:47:10] <Bytram> huh? I didn't see anything returned...
[00:47:19] <SpallsHurgenson> "erm of contempt in British slang, by 1977, probably from slang toss off "act of masturbation" (1735). Agent noun from toss (v.). " (etymonlne.com)
[00:47:22] * Bytram does have ciri silenced, but that's it.
[00:47:50] <chromas> ciri is the fightbot
[00:47:57] <Bytram> oh. LOL!
[00:48:09] <SpallsHurgenson> "wanker (n.) 1940s, "masturbator," British slang, from wank "to masturbate," of unknown origin. General sense of "contemptible person" is attested from 1972."
[00:48:20] <n1> wanker beats tosser...
[00:48:33] <chromas> tossers need salads
[00:48:36] <Bytram> interesting choice of words you used there
[00:49:10] <SpallsHurgenson> useless fact of the day: the phrase "toss off " is older (1735) than "wank" (1948) as a reference to masturbation :)
[00:50:17] <SpallsHurgenson> be aware this new piece of useless information has probably now permanently pushed out a more vital piece of information in your already information-saturated brain
[00:51:40] <SpallsHurgenson> if you forget to brush your teeth or how to chop onions or something similar, its probably thanks to your new knowledge of wanking and tossing. You're welcome :)

[00:54:29] <chromas> the @ probably means it's twatter

[01:01:46] * crutchy isn't sure what borked the weatehr script now
[01:02:38] <chromas> maybe it's your useragent
[01:02:41] <crutchy> i'll go through the html anyway since they might have changed div id's or summin stupid like that
[01:02:45] <crutchy> or that yeah

[01:11:14] <crutchy> just changed the first closing delimiter
[01:11:22] <SpallsHurgenson> omigosh, you haxored google! call the cops!
[01:11:23] <chromas> set it to "roboqueef"
[01:12:44] <crutchy> they must've removed the 'detailed forecast' link

[01:17:42] <SirFinkus> no you ciri
[01:17:48] <Ethanol-fueled> how you doing bro? Go out to omak lately?
[01:18:02] <SirFinkus> nope, following the possible riots in town
[01:18:15] <SirFinkus> should be fun
[01:18:21] <Ethanol-fueled> There ain't gonna be no riots, that's just to distract everybody from TPP and patriot act
[01:18:36] <Ethanol-fueled> Even teh Baltimore "riot" was pretty weak.
[01:18:45] <crutchy> is rand paul still fillibrustering patriot?
[01:19:16] <SirFinkus> http://i.imgur.com people are posting this shit everywhere
[01:19:22] <takyon> no
[01:19:26] <takyon> he ended it before midnight
[01:19:44] <takyon> is that printed on receipt paper
[01:19:49] <Ethanol-fueled> HAHA Finkus. Those were probably printed by the FBI.
[01:19:52] <crutchy> SirFinkus, only if there isn't some reality tv show on at that time
[01:19:53] <SirFinkus> it little violence yesterday, but probably more drunks
[01:20:01] <SirFinkus> *just drunks
[01:20:01] <Ethanol-fueled> still funny though...they'd make a good collector's item.
[01:20:21] <SirFinkus> I may drive down there and take a peak
[01:20:29] <Ethanol-fueled> Yeah, a handful of people actually care for the cause, but a lot of those guys are just rabblerousers who want to fuck shit up.
[01:20:32] <SirFinkus> but I've got hoptimum now, so I'm comfy here
[01:20:42] <takyon> look at the 'B' in Bring
[01:20:53] <SirFinkus> these are the anarchists, we have a few here
[01:21:01] <crutchy> Ethanol-fueled, yeah i think you might be right. there's no grammar or spelling errors. and who types anything while in a blind rage using a font like that anyway?
[01:21:01] <takyon> I guess it's the edge of the paper in the shadow maybe
[01:21:32] <SirFinkus> what's wrong with the b?
[01:21:45] * Ethanol-fueled didn't see anything wrong with either "B"

[01:23:35] <takyon> "pre-husband"
[01:23:41] <Ethanol-fueled> on the scale of the LA riots
[01:23:51] <chromas> keep it in LA
[01:23:55] <Ethanol-fueled> agreed, chromas.
[01:23:55] <SirFinkus> I have enough ammo
[01:23:56] <chromas> let the shitty states have the riots
[01:24:02] <crutchy> real riots are prolly organised using tor nowadays
[01:24:40] <Ethanol-fueled> bullshit, crutchy. Your average American rioter doesn't know what tor is.
[01:24:54] <crutchy> not the rioters, just the organisers
[01:25:29] <takyon> yeah I doubt it
[01:25:35] <Ethanol-fueled> Gonna get food for the evening and take a shower. Be back here in like 20 minuts or so.
[01:25:36] <takyon> probably use the latest app
[01:25:46] <crutchy> or maybe not. i'm just guessing that it takes a bit of effort to organise a riot, but maybe they don't need much
[01:25:56] Ethanol-fueled is now known as Ethanol-Fueled
[01:25:59] <crutchy> hehe StartARiot
[01:26:02] <SpallsHurgenson> I think by definition riots aren't organized :)
[01:26:25] <crutchy> they prolly start of as organised rallies
[01:26:29] <crutchy> *off
[01:26:40] <SpallsHurgenson> not all of 'em :)

[01:32:01] <SpallsHurgenson> today South Africa, tomorrow Australia and the UK, and the day after that the US :)
[01:33:40] <SpallsHurgenson> well, it might take a bit longer to get to the US - we like to pretend about freedom of speech - but Australia will love it :)
[01:34:18] <crutchy> we don't have freedum here. we're under no illusions
[01:36:10] <crutchy> you get stopped by the police in australia, we know that you just do as you're told
[01:36:34] <crutchy> no bill of rights or anything
[01:36:57] <crutchy> but meh. we're prolly still more free than most countries
[01:37:10] <chromas> We have a second amendment that people only 'use' to defend the second amendment
[01:37:49] <SpallsHurgenson> I'm a rare lefty who supports the right to arm bears :)
[01:37:53] <crutchy> your second amendment will come into play eventually, and it will become obvious what it was meant for
[01:38:06] <crutchy> not yet though
[01:38:17] <chromas> we just need more Dexters
[01:38:51] <SpallsHurgenson> I'd prefer never although I see its usefulness... but civil war is such a /risky/ thing. More often than not, you get something worse out of the bargain than what you started with
[01:39:14] <crutchy> 2nd amendment is all to do that uncomfortable concept of government tyranny
[01:40:13] <crutchy> the militias are growing but it will prolly take a while before they are ready and till the government is weakened to the point where they can make a difference

[01:42:04] <SpallsHurgenson> actually, small arms are effective. you don't necessarily need to beat the army, just wreck the infrastructure
[01:42:07] <takyon> biker gang !== militia
[01:42:36] <crutchy> i think most militias are a bit more than just bikie gangs
[01:42:44] <crutchy> they're apparently quite professional

[02:05:03] <takyon> that's one way to celebrate memorial day
[02:06:24] <Bytram> one day they brought this huge TV projector rig into the student union. this was back in '81. the intent was to rent and project VCR tapes instead of movies. Had standard RF connectors... I ran to my dorm, snared my Atari 800, brought it to the student union, hooked it up to the projector and the AMPs we were setting up for a concert. Played Star Raiders on a ten-foot screen with 2 kilowatts of sound
[02:06:24] <Bytram> blasting around me.
[02:06:59] <takyon> finest hour
[02:07:22] <Bytram> I had a *blast*!!
[02:07:36] <Bytram> when the shipwent into hyperspace, it sounded like a 747 taking off!
[02:07:41] <Ethanol-Fueled> hahaha, nice.
[02:07:42] <crutchy> never got into student union stuff at uni, but they do get up to some funny stuff
[02:08:07] <crutchy> drinking-puking contests etc
[02:08:08] * Ethanol-Fueled is sad, will never have a proper college experience.
[02:08:46] <crutchy> just don't do anything too hard. aerospace nerds don't really get much of a chance to get into uni social stuff
[02:08:57] <Ethanol-Fueled> crutchy, I wasn't in school, but when an older friend was we'd steal liquor and go into the dorms. Saw a dude spill beer and suck it outta the rug.
[02:08:57] <crutchy> plus they're usually shoved into remote campuses :(
[02:09:21] <Bytram> we had a 300watt amp for the bass bins, a 200 watt amp for the horns, and an 80 watt amp for the tweeters. that was for *each* side. Bass bins (woofers) had 12-inch speakers (maybe 14 can't remember for sure)
[02:09:36] <Ethanol-Fueled> The university I'm attending is always sending out these announcements about rape culture and minority celebration days and shit.
[02:09:52] <Ethanol-Fueled> Bleech, at least they were kind enough to have an online program.
[02:10:10] <crutchy> "lets not be homophobic by celebrating the fact that being gay is different!"
[02:10:20] <Ethanol-Fueled> That's a pretty bitchin' rig, bytram.
[02:10:33] <crutchy> well, not really fact
[02:10:38] <Bytram> you got that right, and that was back in 1981, IIRC.
[02:10:47] <crutchy> old school still rocks
[02:10:56] <Ethanol-Fueled> old school does rock.
[02:11:00] * crutchy watched the into to the 2015 grammies on youtube
[02:11:07] <Bytram> let's put it this way... that atari was pretty close to state-of-the-art for home computers at the time.
[02:11:15] * crutchy feels sorry for that singer chick that had to follow AC/DC
[02:11:34] <crutchy> they came, they rocked, they left... and it all went downhill from there
[02:11:35] <Ethanol-Fueled> shame on you, crutchy...not only willingly watching an award show, but one of the shitties ones. Did the missus make you do it?
[02:11:50] <crutchy> nah i just watched the first bit with AC/DC
[02:11:55] <crutchy> fuck the rest
[02:12:28] <Ethanol-Fueled> We guitar players call 'em "AE/DG" because those are the only chords they know how to play.
[02:12:35] <crutchy> lol
[02:12:35] <ciri> heh
[02:12:44] <Ethanol-Fueled> But it's Ballsy, simple, loud rock and roll. AC/DC are legends.
[02:12:50] <crutchy> have you seen angus play e-f?
[02:12:56] * Ethanol-Fueled likes Brian Johnson more than Bon Scott
[02:13:01] <crutchy> he doesn't really just 'play'
[02:13:10] <Ethanol-Fueled> crutchy, unfortunately not live.
[02:13:27] <crutchy> me neither live, but the live videos online are still pretty awesome
[02:13:53] <crutchy> the guy is in his 60's and still rocks like a 20 something
[02:14:02] <crutchy> sweats like one too
[02:14:06] <Ethanol-Fueled> Oh yeah, they're great. Angus (like Slash) has one of the most distinctive styles and stage presence of all guitar legends.
[02:14:41] * crutchy types "angus young solo" in youtube search
[02:14:42] <Ethanol-Fueled> And they have bar cred, doing mad dope, dancing on broken glass, etc.

[02:48:19] <Ethanol-Fueled> with the exception of "small"
[02:48:38] <Bytram> there IS a resemblance... but that goes for most of the places I've visited in CA
[02:48:57] <Ethanol-Fueled> Where you at now, ME?
[02:48:58] <ciri> out and about!! Ethanol-Fueled
[02:49:04] <Bytram> on second thought, not so much
[02:49:12] <Bytram> northeast US
[02:49:46] <Ethanol-Fueled> What do you think about it? Better or worse than CA?
[02:50:01] <Ethanol-Fueled> (Besides that our weather is obviously better, muahahah...)
[02:50:05] * Bytram spent the better part of a week in SD back in '95 or so. Great weather and had a good time at the Marine Park (whatever it was called)
[02:50:29] <Bytram> In retrospect, I think I'd have been better off going to the zoo
[02:50:40] <Ethanol-Fueled> There's a LOT of good marine tech on the Northeast coast though
[02:50:48] * Bytram likes seasons... just when I get tired of one, there's another one on its way.
[02:51:02] <Ethanol-Fueled> Here in San Diego we have no seasons.
[02:52:21] <Bytram> I also spent the better part of a summer well into fall in San Jose on business. Nice enough. Glad I went. Wouldn't really want to live there, though. Too expensive and not enough trees.
[02:52:54] <SpallsHurgenson> Ceres keeps going 'round and 'round and 'round... it's hypnotic
[02:53:15] * Bytram thinks he should be mostly done with the D/L by now.
[02:54:34] <Bytram> took some getting used to the geography, too. Astonishingly flat and level valley surrounded by hills that just jutted up from the valley floor. I'm used to rolling hills and mountains with an occasional flat-ish place here and there.
[02:56:10] * Bytram DID enjoy driving down Lombard street in SF -- can't imagine owning one of the homes along it, tho.
[02:56:32] <SpallsHurgenson> tourist :)
[02:56:50] <Bytram> yuppers, and proud of it, at the time.
[02:57:08] <Ethanol-Fueled> I agree with spalls, if you didn't traverse any mountain paths, it's probably because you drove from San Diego to San Jose.
[02:57:38] <Ethanol-Fueled> There is a fuckton of mountain townships and culture in California.
[02:57:38] <Bytram> I remember going to a Morocan restaurant in San Jose on IIRC West Gish(!) street.
[02:58:06] <Bytram> two different trips -- several years apart
[02:58:38] * Bytram wishes he had made time to go see the Sequoias
[03:00:39] <SpallsHurgenson> its not as exciting as you might think; they don't let you chop one down
[03:00:43] <SpallsHurgenson> (and get upset if you try)
[03:00:46] <crutchy> Ethanol-Fueled, isn't some of the west border of CA shared with Arizona?
[03:01:01] <crutchy> pretty sure there are some goat tracks around there
[03:02:32] <Bytram> crutchy: the *west* border of CA is the Pacific ocean. :/
[03:03:02] * Bytram is not so sure what is on the *east* side, tho.
[03:03:07] <crutchy> oops. the *other* west :p
[03:03:14] <Ethanol-Fueled> Why are you being all confrontational about it, crutchy? Arizona has some awesome parts.
[03:03:23] <Bytram> crutchy: comes from viewing things downside up
[03:03:33] <Ethanol-Fueled> (unfortunately the parts that border CA are all crap)
[03:03:41] <crutchy> nah i meant goat tracks as in cool little mining towns
[03:03:51] <crutchy> prolly just talking a different language :D
[03:04:25] * Bytram thinks crutchy has watched too many oaters

[03:07:34] <Bytram> have a good night everyone!
[03:07:36] <Ethanol-Fueled> later
[03:07:41] <crutchy> just avoid sand, dirt, ocean, air, etc and you'll be fine

[22:59:03] <Ethanol-fueled> I also can't wait until sigma's story is run.
[22:59:08] <Ethanol-fueled> That one should be good.
[22:59:51] <Ethanol-fueled> I understand that the editors need style guidelines, however, I don't think they should interfere with the more decent submitters shit like mine for having a style of its own.
[23:00:57] <Ethanol-fueled> I'm going to bring that up in the discussion -- that some submitters have style and write in a conversational way that is more like speaking informally rather than writing a proper English paper.
[23:01:17] <n1> we generally dont seek to change the 'style' of any submission
[23:02:24] <Ethanol-fueled> So basically, my recommendation would be not to meddle with People who can write good submissions; like Hugh Pickens, myself, gewg_, or buzzard and ncommander if they weren't already staff (so likely not being edited)
[23:02:41] <n1> thats pretty much what we do

[23:02:52] <Ethanol-fueled> But at the same time I totally understand why things could be made more provocative.
[23:03:18] <n1> but sometimes we do get 'flow of consciousness' submissions that are not very coherent
[23:03:40] <Ethanol-fueled> I don't think Janrinok's public self-flaggelation was necessary, though. Shit happens.
[23:03:48] <Ethanol-fueled> good point, n1.
[23:03:51] <n1> and i usually go out of my way to remove any provocation from headlines especially
[23:03:58] <n1> resulting in what i assume is less comments and views
[23:04:18] <Ethanol-fueled> n1, you should run the story I submitted. guaranteed replies :)
[23:04:20] <Ethanol-fueled> HAHAHAHA
[23:04:27] <n1> the information can speak for itself, opinion can be saved for the comments
[23:04:45] <n1> which is how i think the microsoft/UK story should have gone
[23:05:15] <n1> i'm looking at it now, i'm not averse to running it at all
[23:05:29] <Ethanol-fueled> I didn't really read the whole discussion yet...but wasn't that true? What Microsoft did could be considered blackmail, right?
[23:05:57] <n1> it could be, sure
[23:06:07] <Ethanol-fueled> The issue was rather that sigma didn't agree with the wording(and felt misrepresented) rather than whether or not Microsoft did could be actually considered blackmail
[23:06:18] <n1> there were two issues in there
[23:06:26] <n1> which are quite seperate
[23:06:47] <n1> the blackmail thing is one and the addition of the comment is the other
[23:07:34] <Ethanol-fueled> what was the comment addition?
[23:07:50] <n1> the comment addition was about what MS did being 'normal business'
[23:07:55] <n1> not an exclusively MS tactic
[23:08:45] <n1> janrinok was trying to provide balance, good intentions, but it was in a story that really didn't warrant it

[23:27:45] <SirFinkus> went downtown yesterday, no riots
[23:28:03] <Ethanol-fueled> I figured as such
[23:28:27] <SirFinkus> there were lots of black panther looking guys on all the streetcorners though
[23:28:47] <SirFinkus> probably would have been a riot if anyone showed up to actually protest
[23:29:15] <Ethanol-fueled> Washington is the place you go to avoid riots.
[23:29:35] <Ethanol-fueled> (as well as the collapse of society. Go Northwestern Front!)
[23:31:03] <n1> without the protests, the 'riot' would look more like reality, a small number of people trying to cause trouble using demonstrations as cover
[23:31:13] <Ethanol-fueled> Yup.
[23:31:48] <n1> one thing about protests has burned into my brain, i probably mentioned it here before. I visted the london occupy movement, when it was a thing
[23:32:01] <Ethanol-fueled> go on...
[23:32:04] <n1> and what i witnessed there for several hours, couldn't have been further from the reportin on it

[23:33:10] <n1> it was a very clean, respectful environment, it felt very inclusive and i saw that people had open discussions about all sorts of things.

[23:33:32] <n1> couldnt have been further again from the people i spoke to there
[23:33:54] <Ethanol-fueled> That's pretty shitty, n1, that the media would be so blatantly anti-populist.
[23:33:58] <n1> they wernt idiots, but i guess you cant get that kind of nuance down into a 20second soundbyte
[23:34:22] <SirFinkus> kooks are more fun
[23:34:30] <SpallsHurgenson> my ears are ringing
[23:34:38] <Ethanol-fueled> kooks were all that was left of occupy SD
[23:34:50] <n1> it does make me question now the representation of protests in general
[23:34:51] <SirFinkus> I'm of the opinion that the media isn't really being all that malicious, they're just going for ratings
[23:35:14] <n1> the media is one thing, the news should be another
[23:35:17] <n1> but apparently they're not
[23:35:20] <Ethanol-fueled> They had like 200 people, then the city sent in a Blackwater-like private security team who beat the shit out of everybody they could
[23:35:25] <SirFinkus> which makes them super easy to manipulate
[23:35:52] <n1> and even if you dont have that, you have the other side, the BBC position
[23:35:58] <n1> where you must be balanced above everything else
[23:35:59] <ciri> somewhere out on the WEB i guess n1
[23:36:04] <SirFinkus> BBC is shit
[23:36:07] <n1> so if you have one person saying the earth is round
[23:36:11] <SirFinkus> all clickbait
[23:36:13] <n1> you have to give equal coverage to the people saying it's flat
[23:36:33] <SpallsHurgenson> don't be ridiculous; the earth isn't flat; any fool can see that!
[23:36:38] <SpallsHurgenson> I mean, it has mountains and stuff!
[23:36:41] <chromas> it can be both
[23:36:45] <chromas> discs are flat and round
[23:36:59] <n1> the bbc has good moments, but they are rapidly diminishing
[23:37:02] <Ethanol-fueled> The earth is technically an oblate spheroid.

[23:37:53] <n1> but thats what we get when we dont want to fund the BBC anymore
[23:38:00] <SpallsHurgenson> (another useless fact to clutter your brains)
[23:38:06] <n1> investigative journalists costs money and offer little reward when the government puts a d-notice out on the story
[23:38:32] <SirFinkus> I'd always heard pool ball
[23:38:38] <Ethanol-fueled> When I go to a news site, I want to read fucking news. Not distractions.
[23:38:38] <n1> so reprinting press releases and inconsequential studies is by far the best decision

[23:40:29] <n1> journalists affect advertisers, proprietors, governments
[23:40:31] <n1> and the national interests
[23:40:32] <chromas> it works for laws; why not news?
[23:40:44] <n1> public relations is much more inclusive to those interests
[23:41:02] <SpallsHurgenson> well, those nasty journalists keep finding difficult facts that embarass the corporations that buy the ads.
[23:41:11] <SpallsHurgenson> if only they would keep to the script :)
[23:41:32] <n1> real news is boring
[23:41:44] <n1> and depressing usually
[23:41:49] <SpallsHurgenson> also complicated; it doesnt' wrap up into a neat, easily digestable (and sellable) package
[23:42:03] <SirFinkus> oooh, my pencil lead came!
[23:42:07] <n1> SpallsHurgenson, as i referenced before, it has to fit in to a 20second or less soundbye
[23:42:10] <n1> soundbyte*
[23:42:17] <n1> and be easily translated into a 140 character tweet
[23:42:18] <SpallsHurgenson> who wants to read stuff like that? official press releases have good guys and bad guys and suggest easy solutions :)
[23:42:45] <SpallsHurgenson> everybody likes a nice narrative! truth is complicated :)
[23:42:58] <n1> Ethanol-fueled, that multiculturalism article is a very good read
[23:43:10] <Ethanol-fueled> n1, that's because I wrote it.
[23:43:20] <Ethanol-fueled> But arrogrance aside, I appreciate the complement.
[23:43:47] <Ethanol-fueled> (oh, I didn't write the linked articles though, haha)
[23:44:11] <n1> the submission is alright
[23:44:12] <Ethanol-fueled> n1, in retrospect I wish I'd used a less-inflammatory opening paragraph, hahah
[23:44:21] <n1> thats the only thing i'd change really
[23:44:37] <Ethanol-fueled> You have my permission to change it if you want to run it.
[23:44:43] <n1> thanks
[23:45:03] <n1> it has more chance of inspiring constructive discussion with a revised opening
[23:45:14] <n1> and people should RTFA
[23:45:21] <n1> which i might just use as the dept. title
[23:45:37] <Ethanol-fueled> Go for it. You may want to use a less-abrasive title as well. Change it at will. Run it. Sit back with a bag of popcorn and let the sparks fly.
[23:46:06] <SirFinkus> lmao
[23:46:09] <SirFinkus> the packing job on this
[23:46:10] <SirFinkus> http://i.imgur.com
[23:46:29] <chromas> Amazon?
[23:46:38] <juggs> has to be
[23:46:38] <Ethanol-fueled> Actually there is one good thing about multiculturalism -- the food. I can walk literally one block and get a huge fucking plate of zilzil tibs for dirt-cheap.
[23:46:39] <SirFinkus> amazon, but third party seller
[23:47:06] <SpallsHurgenson> its a box thing. it's actually cheaper for them to mail a few items in oversized boxes than stock a huge variety of boxes
[23:47:14] <n1> problem is multiculturalism is a loaded term in itself now
[23:47:28] <n1> i say this on the basis of another term i've only recently become aware of
[23:47:32] <SirFinkus> it's funny, because the shipping and the packaging probably cost more than the item itself
[23:47:44] <n1> 'social justice' was a new one to me until fairly recently, and i'd only read it in negative contexts
[23:47:57] <n1> so when i finally happened across an article that used it as a positive, i was immediately turned off by it
[23:48:05] <n1> regardless of the merits of the article
[23:48:46] <n1> i had to stop and think for a minute about it, these terms are generally meaningless and people have created their own definitions for them
[23:48:48] <SpallsHurgenson> especially in warehouses with lots of shipping, since its easier for personnel to use wrong-sized boxes than it is to look for the right sized box
[23:49:49] <n1> SpallsHurgenson, they're on time targets, dont get an order ready for shipping every 60 seconds, they're in trouble with their supervisor
[23:49:53] <SirFinkus> not pictured: and add for school girl costumes
[23:50:25] <SpallsHurgenson> n1: exactly. it takes time to find the right box. not to mention storing all those boxes
[23:51:09] <n1> i hear it a lot, "they should have done this", which you can only agree with in general, but the point is, the metrics the businesses use to analyze their performance
[23:51:14] <n1> doesn't cover that stuff in any way
[23:51:16] <n1> so it's not important
[23:51:21] <Ethanol-fueled> n1, and feminism.
[23:51:41] <Ethanol-fueled> Something that can be good and doesn't have to be bad, just that the phrase gets hijacked by idiots every now and then.
[23:51:52] <SpallsHurgenson> a lot of warhouses only have three or four sizes. its not stupidity or even (economic) wastefulness; it just makes more sense to use a larger box sometimes
[23:52:13] <n1> indeed, Ethanol-fueled
[23:52:19] <SpallsHurgenson> anyway, I got no complaints. kitty likes boxes :)
[23:52:24] <n1> it's another one where both sides of the debate damage a once useful term
[23:53:13] <SirFinkus> I'd be shocked if a kitty fit in the box
[23:53:31] * SpallsHurgenson realizes he missed a comment about school girl costumes.
[23:53:34] <SirFinkus> I was more impressed by the fact that it was bubble wrapped, and taped in the exact center of the box
[23:53:57] * SpallsHurgenson feels this topic needs to be explored more thoroughly
[23:54:20] <SirFinkus> "Sailor cosplay innocent schoolgirl school uniform" for only $9.53USD
[23:55:49] <SpallsHurgenson> oh, cosplay; that brings up... /unpleasant/... images
[23:55:54] <SirFinkus> I suspect the girl in the picture is a butterface because they cropped her face out
[23:56:50] <Ethanol-fueled> Haha, ouch.
[23:56:55] <chromas> 100% of all the models in the standing desk photos on Amazon are butterfaces
[23:57:16] <SpallsHurgenson> ~define butterfaces
[23:57:23] <exec> [wiktionary] 03butterfaces: butterfaces
[23:57:32] <SpallsHurgenson> well, that's helpful :)
[23:57:40] <chromas> ~define butterface
[23:57:44] <exec> [wikipedia] 03Butterface: This page has been deleted. The deletion and move log for the page are provided below for reference.
[23:57:45] <SirFinkus> there are a few other things, the rest is a mix of anime shit, pens/stationary and candy
[23:58:05] <SirFinkus> the ads I mean
[23:58:32] <chromas> SpallsHurgenson: think of someone whose face looks melted like butter
[23:58:36] <chromas> like sarah jessica perker
[23:58:43] <SirFinkus> no, it's a pun
[23:58:49] <chromas> that too
[23:58:51] <chromas> mine's better
[23:58:51] <SirFinkus> "she's got a great body, but her face"
[23:59:24] <Ethanol-fueled> Foxie Brown: Hey look, it's a 12 year-old girl and a donkey!
[23:59:42] <Ethanol-fueled> Captain Hero: Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica parker?
[23:59:49] * SirFinkus just had a disturbing though
