[01:24:33] <AzumaHazuki> "hoax" my ass. fucking revanchist lunatics.
[01:25:01] <requerdanos> I wish them well, mentally and physically.
[01:25:30] <requerdanos> of course if they get well mentally, the problem might go away on its own

[02:47:48] <Runaway1956> Enter "kerry" and "swiftboat" into a search engine
[02:48:32] <Bytram> there was a huge disinformation campaign when he was running for office
[02:48:46] <Runaway1956> I call it an information campaign
[02:48:50] <Bytram> you made the claim, please support it with facts
[02:49:03] <Runaway1956> https://en.wikipedia.org
[02:49:04] <systemd> ^ 03John Kerry military service controversy - Wikipedia
[02:51:59] <Bytram> Runaway1956: From the link you provided:
[02:52:01] <Bytram> During John Kerry's candidacy in the 2004 U.S. presidential campaign, a political issue that gained widespread public attention was Kerry's Vietnam War record. In television advertisements and a book called Unfit for Command, co-authored by John O'Neill and Jerome Corsi, the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth (SBVT), a 527 group later known as the Swift Vets and POWs for Truth, questioned details of his military service record and
[02:52:05] <Bytram> circumstances relating to the awarding of his combat medals. Their campaign against Kerry's presidential bid received widespread publicity,[1] but was later discredited and gave rise to the neologism "swiftboating", to describe an unfair or untrue political attack.[2][3] Defenders of Kerry's service record, including former crewmates, stated that allegations made by SBVT were false.[4][5][6]
[02:52:38] <Runaway1956> Yes, I merely linked to the controversy. It's controversial. And, I take the swiftboater's side,
[02:53:01] <requerdanos> The Earth is an oblate spheroid.
[02:53:03] <chromas> Who discredits the discreditors?
[02:53:24] <Runaway1956> Fact is, thousands of real sailors have been injured more seriously during peace time sailing
[02:53:25] <Bytram> Their campaign against Kerry's presidential bid... was later discredited
[02:53:54] <Runaway1956> I credit their campaign.
[02:54:09] <chromas> So he got 'em, but some people™ claim he didn't earn them. Does that mean Obama didn't really get his peace prize?
[02:55:04] <Runaway1956> LOL Obama and piece prize
[02:55:06] * chromas coins the term miffedgoading
[02:55:21] <Bytram> no place in that did I see corroboration of your claim that he "he wrote up his own purple heart awards three times or more"
[02:56:49] <Bytram> Runaway1956: "The criteria for the Purple Heart call for its award for any injury received during combat requiring treatment by a medical officer; the military makes no distinction regarding the severity of the injury. "
[02:58:20] <Runaway1956> Yeah, I know what the criteria are - and no real soldier or sailor is going to expect a purpler heart for a little splinter, or a skinned knee, or such minor bullshit
[02:59:37] <chromas> no real soldier expects a medal. in fact, they stash them away so people don't see 'em
[03:00:09] <Runaway1956> That's pretty much true chromas
[03:00:23] <Bytram> You claim was "he wrote up his own purple heart awards three times or more". I have yet to see you support that.

[03:03:00] <Runaway1956> McCain won some redemption as a POW
[03:03:07] <Runaway1956> Kerry has never redeemed himself
[03:03:54] <Bytram> Runaway1956: were you ever under fire?

[03:06:08] <Runaway1956> Though I often question the leadership that sends grunts in harm's way, like in Iraq
[03:06:58] <Bytram> At that point, you have no say. That said, I have had similar questions.
[03:07:10] <Bytram> I would like to stay and chat more, but I've been overdoing it for several days in a row. Trying to get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight.

[03:15:23] <chromas> just dry it out ahead of time
[03:15:28] <Runaway1956> It better have just about zero moisture content before it flies
[03:17:33] <Runaway1956> maybe they run lumber through a drying kiln somewhere in the desert before building the box, then launch from the desert?
[03:17:54] <chromas> Elon needs to hurry up and get his wood into space before the Japanese
[03:18:42] <chromas> Can you leave the moisture but seal the wood?
[03:18:47] <chromas> Maybe shrink-wrap it
[03:19:20] <Runaway1956> Not sure what sealant can be relied on in space - maybe an epoxy
[03:20:19] <Runaway1956> A quick look suggests that standard lumber at a lumber yard varies between 5 and 9% moisture

[03:35:29] <chromas> Standard, sure. What about the crap at Home Depot though?
[03:36:09] <chromas> it's pre-warped, so if you start there, it can only get worse
[03:39:47] <Runaway1956> TBH, Home Depot lumber doesn't seem to be much worse than other lumberyards
[03:40:37] <Runaway1956> Purchasing a few sticks of wood at a time means the bundles are cut, and left loose in whatever atmosphere there is
[03:41:02] <Runaway1956> purchasing several bundles, and using them within a day or two, you see a lot less warping

[16:25:13] <requerdanos> nice.
[17:30:21] <FatPhil> well, the earliest sunset and the latest sunrise are about 3-4 days apart, so the shortest day is neither of those, and somewhere in between - I didn't want to be too precise lest I was called on my accuracy.
[17:30:28] <FatPhil> Defensive gibbering.

[19:01:42] <halibut> FatPhil: Can I call you on accuracy anyways? First link when searching for ``northern hemisphere earliest sunset'' ( https://earthsky.org ) states that, while highly latitude dependent, there is much more than just 3 to four days between the two (half a month to a whole month in some places).
[19:01:43] <systemd> ^ 03When is my earliest sunset? | EarthSky.org
[19:05:27] <halibut> Also, in case you did not see my response before (and hadn't figured it out yourself), I think you were looking earlier for ``plus addressing'', or ``subaddressing''. References: https://en.wikipedia.org https://tools.ietf.org

[19:11:50] <FatPhil> halibut: I'm sure it's very lattitude dependent, for the obvious reaons. Some latitudes don't have the concepts being talked about.
[19:12:11] <FatPhil> Oh, am I complaining about the Poles again, comin' over here...
[19:16:12] <halibut> I guess at the poles, the difference is closer to 6 months (depending on whether sunset is defined as when the sun appears to touch the horizon, or appears to disappear, with equivalent definition of sunrise).
[19:17:11] <halibut> The diagram on the site I found covered about 25 deg. N to 50 deg. N, with earliest sunset being roughly in the first two weeks of Dec.
[19:19:21] <FatPhil> Ah, i'm way more north than that, so that bit of the planet basically doesn't exist.
[19:19:30] <FatPhil> Burnt it all down, I say.
[19:20:50] <FatPhil> halibut: oh, regarding the email thing, I found a pretty useful googlemail link with which to persuade them that the two email addresses they'd seen from me were the same person.
[19:21:42] <halibut> If I sliced 25 deg. N to 50 deg. N out of the Earth, and left the remaining two pieces to fall together, I imagine it would spill a lot of beer when they collided. Better insert a Great Turtle to support them.
[19:22:07] <halibut> You managed to convince somebody of something? 2020 must be getting weak towards the end.
[19:24:30] <FatPhil> I've not got a reply yet - maybe he's in shock or stunned?
[19:26:03] <FatPhil> But I never said get rid of that slice. Cover it with solar panels so that those of us in the civilised part of the world can happily have all the energy we could ever need.
[19:26:58] <FatPhil> Eventually the scientists will come up with photovoltaic plants with 90% efficiency, and we'll be able to use their fruit as batteries.
[19:28:53] <halibut> Maybe just cover the land area in that portion? Fish need to eat (plus oceanic photosynthesis in that latitude range is important to you.)
[19:45:44] <FatPhil> Sure, only the land was included in the "burning" statement. Exxon may have the technology to burn the sea too, but I wasn't thinking of that.
[19:56:48] <halibut> Whoah. I think this is one of the sillier article names in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org I have not checked it in a while. Surprisingly, they now even have cute diagrams explaining the sentence.

[20:59:52] <Bytram> Does anyone know a way to open a URL in a "Private Browsing" window?
[21:00:31] <Bytram> Ideally in an existing window, otherwise in a new Private Browsing window.

[22:55:48] <chromas> Hard to use 'em since school's only on Zoom now
[22:56:29] <FatPhil> buy them a DDoS script instead
[22:59:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, ima teach em to shoot something worth killing instead of idiot kids. *starts printing out pictures of all 535 congressmen and drawing circles on them*
[23:09:51] <chromas> Ah, classic shooting hoops
