[01:36:09] <Bytram> =g Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf
[01:36:10] <upstart> https://en.wikipedia.org - Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf - Wikipedia
[01:36:27] <Bytram> well that's helpful :/
[01:36:29] <Bytram> clicky
[01:37:01] <Bytram> "Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf (Arabic: محمد سعيد الصحاف‎ Muḥammad Saʿīd Al-Ṣaḥḥāf; born 30 July 1940), also known as Baghdad Bob, is a former Iraqi diplomat and politician. He came to world wide prominence around the 2003 invasion of Iraq, during which he was the Iraqi Information Minister under Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, acting as spokesperson for the Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party and Saddam's government. "
[01:37:44] <Bytram> what does he have to do with Erdogan?
[01:40:54] <Bytram> Apparently no connection. Seems he had a "gift" for [mis]stating reality...
[01:41:02] <Bytram> " denial that there were any American tanks in Baghdad, when in fact they were only several hundred meters away[citation needed] from the press conference where he was speaking and the combat sounds of the nearing American troops could already be heard in the background of the broadcast. "

[06:13:10] <chromas> Building the shiniest kernel's been going for over an hour and it's only using a couple percent of the cpu. I guess I don't have enough -j
[07:07:06] <AzumaHazuki> Someone really needs to break the clue by four over freeman's head
[07:07:11] <AzumaHazuki> there is something diseased about this guy
[07:18:18] <FatPhil> which story?
[07:19:01] <AzumaHazuki> https://soylentnews.org
[07:19:02] <upstart> ^ 03SoylentNews Comments ( https://soylentnews.org )
[07:19:02] <FatPhil> I've locked metaphorical horns with him a few times in the last couple of weeks.
[07:19:38] <AzumaHazuki> i've kicked his ass up and down that thread like Tifa Lockheart with a screen full of critical rolls on her limit break and he doesn't...get...the...message
[07:20:04] <FatPhil> he has his crusader's shield to protect him!
[07:20:15] <AzumaHazuki> (and yes, that includes Final Heaven, the one that doesn't even bother with four 9s and literally says "Death" when it hits)
[07:20:18] <chromas> Did you try a crowbar?
[07:20:31] <AzumaHazuki> it's tempting
[07:21:16] <AzumaHazuki> the guy is a living WOM (write-only memory). It's like he bends over, goatses himself, and The Watchtower flies out
[07:21:35] <chromas> Maybe he needs +1, Hilarious
[07:21:52] <AzumaHazuki> he's not funny though. he's somewhere between sad and creepy
[07:22:12] <chromas> Comedy from tragedy
[07:22:32] <AzumaHazuki> i have a hard time laughing at other peoples' misfortune
[07:23:13] <AzumaHazuki> even if it happens to someone i think deserves it. that wouldn't get a laugh: it'd get a grimly satisfied "good" from me
[07:23:59] <chromas> "Not an eternal torture, but an eternal death"
[07:24:11] <chromas> Just depends on which part of the bible you're reading at the moment
[07:24:43] <chromas> Eternal sleep; burn forever...what's the difference?
[07:25:04] <AzumaHazuki> uh...one is painful and the other you don't technically even experience...?
[07:25:36] <AzumaHazuki> i have to give him and the JWs credit for doing at least a little basic linguistic research into the original (well, oldest extant...) manuscripts anyway
[07:25:51] <chromas> Fake news. Those two things contradict and we all know the bible doesn't have any of those
[07:25:54] <FatPhil> is he actually a JW?
[07:26:15] <FatPhil> I've not locked horns with him over anything religious, as far as I remember.
[07:26:17] <AzumaHazuki> he seems to follow a lot of the basic points of the dogma. definitely JW flavored at the least
[07:27:01] <AzumaHazuki> the problem is he just...utterly ignores what his opponents say and continues on as if they hadn't said it. that and his idea of an argument is basically to shit contextless chunks of the bible out onto the web
[07:27:36] <FatPhil> I no longer have my bible collection - there might be a clue in the precise wording of the bible verse in his sig uses. JW's often used to deviate from common translations.
[07:27:36] <chromas> Sounds like a young-earth creationist
[07:28:09] <chromas> Does he ever use the word "evidences"?
[07:30:19] <FatPhil> Nope - not JW: The NWT has " 11 As for me, I panicked and said: “Every man is a liar.”
[07:31:22] <chromas> Could he be SDA? They also subscribe to the permanent death idea
[07:31:31] <AzumaHazuki> that was my next guess
[07:32:04] <AzumaHazuki> he...doesn't know as much as he thinks he does though. And, dunning-krugeritis being what it is, the dumber someone is, the less cognizant of that fact they are able to be
[07:32:33] * chromas is a stable genius

[07:37:08] <chromas> Facebook/Amazon double-team supreme
[07:39:08] <FatPhil> was the lack of my life before my birth a "permanent death" too? It seems to have the same boundary conditions as the period after my life (abuts my life on one end, no known other bound)?
[07:39:34] <chromas> It was a permanent death in reverse
[07:39:50] <FatPhil> is that better or worse?
[07:40:11] <FatPhil> are there hidden satanic messages in it when done in reverse \m/,
[07:40:45] <chromas> Better because you weren't thinking and worried about it before it happened
[07:40:54] <AzumaHazuki> if you play black metal backwards, do you get gospel music? =P
[07:40:56] <chromas> Think about how you're going to die forever unless you come in Jesus
[07:48:35] <FatPhil> I listened to a whole Stryper album once, I am now prepared for hell.
[07:49:09] <AzumaHazuki> i've been kicking the shit out of him on that thread. that is what i believe the children refer to as "pwnage."
[07:49:31] <AzumaHazuki> and it's, um, not getting through to him. there is something wrong with the guy's ability to comprehend
[07:57:39] <FatPhil> But if that were true he'd probably believe in all kinds of, ahh....

[22:50:33] <chromas> thanks :)
[22:50:50] * Bytram hadn't laughed that hard in a long time
[22:50:55] * chromas thought about doing a whole day of *-me posts
[22:51:57] <Bytram> really? Just shoot me!

[23:07:00] <Bytram> yup, but not doing well, apparently

[23:15:34] * Bytram reaches through the wall and turns down the bass on the neighbor's stereo
[23:16:20] * Bytram must admit they have been behaving much *much* better so far this year
[23:22:28] <Sulla> I would not be able to handle that
[23:22:56] <Bytram> well, they seem to have turned it down a bit. now
[23:25:57] * Bytram remembers stereo "wars" when he was in college. Someone cranked their stereo 'cause they really liked a certain song. Which encroached on someone else trying to enjoy *their* music. So the encroachee turned up the volume to block out the 'noise' from the encroacher... this was not conducive to others who were trying to study, in peace.
[23:28:15] <Sulla> savage
[23:28:28] <Sulla> I dont listen to music in general so that sounds awful to me
[23:28:39] <Sulla> Slight sounds often give me headaches
[23:31:15] <Bytram> Now, if it were a song that I liked and could hear clearly enough, prolly wouldn't bother me as much.
[23:31:33] <Bytram> but, it's muffled hip hop / rap / or somesuch
[23:31:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, just get a bass guitar and an amp for it. plug everything in and place the amp directly against the shared wall. bonus points if you never actually learn to play.
[23:31:50] <Bytram> already been done, by them.
[23:32:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> nothing for it but to build an emp machine then
[23:32:14] <Bytram> I had... words... with them abut not being such a good idea after midnight
[23:32:35] <Bytram> after a few more late night visits I had a discussion with the landlord
[23:33:26] <Bytram> being polite with the landlord, noting when things happened, and asking what else I could do -- in short not being an ahole about it, led to some changes
[23:33:42] <Bytram> methinks the culprit eventually moved out
[23:33:50] <Bytram> is like 3 guys sharing an appt
[23:33:57] <Bytram> s/pp/p/
[23:34:25] <Bytram> it does not help that I have very sensitive hearing
[23:34:57] <Bytram> so, having been that age, I know what it's like and how I was, and try to make allowances. Live and let live, yanno.
[23:35:20] <Bytram> after 10pm, though, it's a different matter 'cause that is in the lease to be a quiet time.
[23:35:53] <Bytram> so far this year have not had an issue with them.

[23:41:19] <Bytram> ^^^ here's one in action (Is in Russian (I think), but the visuals make it pretty clear what is going on!)
[23:45:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> they're really pretty easy to make. harder to make properly though cause you need to know about faraday cages and proper grounding
[23:45:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> bonus points if you know about wave guides
