[00:00:11] <kyonko2> you think muslim nations have a RKBA?
[00:00:47] <gozar> I would think freedom of speech would be more important than RKBA.
[00:01:17] <kyonko2> how do you enforce that?
[00:02:06] <gozar> The 2nd amendment isn't at all about enforcing your rights for free speech.
[00:02:17] <kyonko2> in places like japan, you can be kidnapped by the police and never get a phone call from jail
[00:02:32] <kyonko2> does that stop child predators in japan?
[00:02:55] <requerdanos> Sounds like it stops the ones who get arrested.
[00:03:01] <gozar> lol

[00:03:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> gozar, you would be wrong. you have no other freedoms without the right to keep and bear arms.
[00:03:56] <kyonko2> TheMightyBuzzard: or how about just being a tall strong human male?
[00:04:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> nope
[00:04:10] <kyonko2> why is that not enough?
[00:04:12] <gozar> What happens when guns are outdated?
[00:04:19] <kyonko2> gozar: guns are outdated
[00:04:30] <gozar> Not now, but they will be eventually.
[00:04:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> because it helps not at all if the government decides it doesn't like what you're saying and sends men who DO have guns
[00:04:53] <kyonko2> yeah, keep denying those french bulldogs are digitally accounted for and implanted with tracking devices
[00:05:14] <gozar> Once the army has laser pistols, a well-regulated militia isn't going to be able to do a thing.
[00:05:15] <kyonko2> TheMightyBuzzard: why do they need guns if you don't have guns?
[00:05:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> they're french, who'd want em?
[00:05:25] <kyonko2> lol @ french
[00:05:31] <gozar> Heck, even now, if you're a threat, they'll send a drone.
[00:05:47] <kyonko2> gozar: they just cut off your digital payment system
[00:05:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> kyonko2, let me know the first time you ever hear of people in power saying THEY should give up guns.
[00:06:04] <kyonko2> TheMightyBuzzard: give up their nukes first
[00:06:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's never them, it's always those they want to control
[00:06:24] <requerdanos> Stop! Or I'll shine my flashlight at you and say mean things about you on my walkie-talkie!
[00:06:38] <gozar> Facebook and Google are controlling lives WAY more than the government.
[00:06:55] <kyonko2> Google is still quite behind compared to apple and facebook
[00:07:02] <kyonko2> Android and ChromeOS aren't bad at all
[00:07:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> no. nukes are made of win and unicorns. they are the best weapon ever invented and have ensured no world wars would happen for almost 80 years.
[00:07:16] <kyonko2> Windows 10? pure trash
[00:07:19] <gozar> Only because Google has a financial interest to keep things close to their chest.
[00:07:34] <gozar> Google search recommendations have gotten scarily good.
[00:07:50] <gozar> And Facebook doesn't even hide it.
[00:08:07] <kyonko2> Oh facebook is straight up 3rd world latin american impunity
[00:08:15] <kyonko2> its the brazil and mexico combined of big tech
[00:08:54] <gozar> I love the irony of antivaxxers posting on FB that vaccines are a way for Bill Gates to track you.
[00:09:02] <kyonko2> mexico is so hardcore into rule of law, democracy and due process, the criminals always win
[00:09:14] <Runaway1956> good one gozar
[00:09:26] <kyonko2> gozar: because something is going on and the laymen and normies don't exactly know what it is
[00:09:45] <Runaway1956> The normies don't have an idea that anything is going on
[00:09:52] <kyonko2> was albert einstein really given the title of king of israel?
[00:09:57] <requerdanos> but the priests and weebs (to use the opposites of those two words) know what's going on?
[00:10:24] <Runaway1956> they know SOMETHING is going on, they just don't know WHAT
[00:10:30] <kyonko2> when america got its independance, george washington was asked if he wanted to be king, because thats all that humanity knows for centuries and time imemorable
[00:11:01] <kyonko2> alright we kicked them out, KING! KING! KING!
[00:11:08] <kyonko2> BE OUR KING!
[00:11:37] <kyonko2> but I'll tell you what, mark zuckerberg is caligula
[00:11:57] <requerdanos> When several US states left the union saying they would never be subject to a "federal government", they immediately created a new federal government ("Confederate States of America") and placed themselves into subjection to it.
[00:12:04] <kyonko2> it wasn't a slashdot thing in the 1990's that bill gates was literally hitler, HE WAS
[00:12:25] <kyonko2> yeah, president jefferson davis
[00:12:42] <kyonko2> the CSA made it as far north as pennsylvania
[00:13:11] <Runaway1956> I never really looked into the Confederacy, but generally speaking, a confederacy isn't a whole lot like a republic
[00:13:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> god damnit. they broke conky's upspeedgraph and downspeedgraph. you get adaptive scale graphs even if you manually specify a scale.
[00:14:01] <requerdanos> wait til you get a new version of conky that tells you all your conky scripts with the old syntax are now merely useful for historical reasons
[00:14:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> they already did that with 1.10
[00:14:47] <kyonko2> during reconstruction after 1865 the french invade and occupy mexico
[00:15:19] <kyonko2> eventually the mexicans kick them out and the plebs place a king in power
[00:15:21] <Runaway1956> Good thing they did, or Camerone Day wouldn't be a thing
[00:15:55] <kyonko2> the mexican president wasn't a king, but he was a king
[00:16:07] <kyonko2> "el presidente"
[00:17:01] <kyonko2> the british were always propping up mexico
[00:17:27] <Runaway1956> https://en.wikipedia.org
[00:17:29] <systemd> ^ 03Battle of Camarón - Wikipedia
[00:18:25] <kyonko2> Mexico isn't even a large land mass, it shouldn't be that complicated like brazil
[00:19:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> your mom's a large land mass
[00:19:21] <kyonko2> yeah she is, she can't fit in an averge blood pressure cuff
[00:19:26] <Runaway1956> large ass does not equal large land mass
[00:19:40] <kyonko2> and I got ripped off with an exergen temporal scanner
[00:20:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> Runaway1956, depends on how dirty she is
[00:20:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> dirt = land
[00:20:16] <kyonko2> exergen was the shit back in the 2009 flu
[00:20:29] <kyonko2> the mexican factory farm pig flu
[00:20:55] * Runaway1956 wanders off aimlessly
[00:21:03] <kyonko2> COME ON MAN
[00:21:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> i prefer women
[00:21:29] <kyonko2> its not my problem those geezers aren't rich and powerfull and had to be put down
[00:21:45] * TheMightyBuzzard wanders off as well
[00:21:50] <kyonko2> lesson here is: by all means become rich and powerfull or you will be put down
[00:22:11] <kyonko2> lady gaga's french bulldogs SHOULD NOT be put down when recovered
[00:22:43] <kyonko2> if the dogs breed a puppy should be given to the victim's next of kin
[00:23:14] <kyonko2> but its totally human to hit a gun with a mallet for killing someone

[00:57:19] <kyonko2> hay
[00:57:41] <AzumaHazuki> what happened to version 1?
[00:58:18] <kyonko2> oh
[00:58:36] <kyonko2> well, sometimes I use that as my login name, so when I have to make a new login I use 2
[00:58:51] <kyonko2> and end up forgetting my mandatory weird ass antihuman secure password
[00:59:03] <kyonko2> but thats only on netbsd
[00:59:42] <kyonko2> took me a good while to KNOW WHY bsd does things the way it does
[00:59:47] <AzumaHazuki> hah...my laptop is LUKS-encrypted with a 50+-character password
[00:59:57] <AzumaHazuki> i don't even have anything to hide, i'm just that paranoid
[01:00:07] <kyonko2> yeah AzumaHazuki I tried LUKS ONCE with linux mint on one user account
[01:00:33] <kyonko2> forget about rescuing anything becauses its like GnuPG
[01:00:39] <kyonko2> not like
[01:00:55] <kyonko2> truecrypt was safer to recover your encrypted blob and move it somewhere else
[01:00:58] <AzumaHazuki> just the home dir? I've got everything but the efi partition and /boot LUKS'd up. And yes, I've also got multiple backups. Also LUKS'd.
[01:01:23] <kyonko2> yes I know, this was the better than thing to truecrypt
[01:01:52] <kyonko2> I still can't make linux mint 20 break with its systemd, but they did remove the console, ugh
[01:02:18] <AzumaHazuki> have you considered Artix, Devuan, or Gentoo?
[01:02:29] <kyonko2> I'll try something else, as I have nothing better to do
[01:03:43] <kyonko2> zimmerman's PGP was damn good for what it was, and I never heard of it ever being used by criminals and terrorists
[01:04:09] <kyonko2> unless of course, the goverment is redacted it in criminal justice evidence
[01:04:53] <kyonko2> but the problem with encryption is, thats its equal to quintuple pass deletion
[01:05:04] <kyonko2> unless its 3DES
[01:05:06] <kyonko2> or AES
[01:05:09] <kyonko2> then its just a joke
[01:05:30] <kyonko2> delete? I don't delete, I just encrypt and swallow the key
[01:05:57] <kyonko2> you ever heard of cryptome.org?
[01:06:01] <AzumaHazuki> yes
[01:06:12] <kyonko2> JYA isn't the man he used to be, but he was anti-trump
[01:06:36] <AzumaHazuki> i'm so sick of politics and have my own things to deal with
[01:06:41] <kyonko2> I also feel myself quickly getting into being a geezer
[01:06:56] <kyonko2> when I was younger I didn't know anything
[01:07:09] <AzumaHazuki> would you believe i got called in for "mandatory counseling" because, get this, apparently I've been so jittery that co-workers with the psychic sensitivity of a wet rock are getting nervous by proxy? WTF.
[01:07:24] <AzumaHazuki> so now i have to do the whole "no, there's nothing wrong with me" song and dance for HR
[01:07:26] <kyonko2> nervous by proxy of what?
[01:07:37] <kyonko2> like what vibe do you give off?
[01:07:42] <kyonko2> aren't you a beautiful woman?
[01:07:47] <AzumaHazuki> apparently just being within 6 feet of me is making them pick up on the nervousness? this was more in the past than now
[01:08:02] <kyonko2> oh so they say YOU are nervous
[01:08:08] <AzumaHazuki> ...i'm a scary woman. i'm 5'10" and have the kind of hair you'd see on Sadako from The Ring, plus deathly silent and awkward
[01:08:28] <kyonko2> I know since before 2016 healthcare pros are not given any breaks
[01:08:41] <kyonko2> oh I'd take care of my hair
[01:08:47] <AzumaHazuki> now of course the fact that most of my coworkers scare me shitless doesn't count for anything, nope. i'm the new girl, the new meat, so anything is my fault
[01:09:11] <kyonko2> maybe its because you are a woman
[01:09:20] <kyonko2> I know a guy who works on a hospitals and no such thing is going on
[01:09:29] <AzumaHazuki> it'd be worse if i were a man i bet. i bet they'd be accusing me of being dangerous if i were a man
[01:09:53] <kyonko2> I guess I am lucky regarding health care
[01:09:59] <kyonko2> never got dr. kevorkian
[01:10:23] <kyonko2> just pure good luck with healthcare and law enforcement
[01:11:22] <kyonko2> I have a lot of bad luck too
[01:11:53] <kyonko2> I don't fret the needle
[01:11:56] <kyonko2> going out
[01:12:04] <kyonko2> going in.... what are they putting in me?
[01:12:30] <kyonko2> depends on how you act, they will give you geodon and you will die :)
[01:13:10] <kyonko2> die from a allergy
[01:13:14] <kyonko2> (:
[01:14:14] <AzumaHazuki> uh...i'm not in need of any medicine except maybe prazosin for some of the nightmares, and that's an alpha-adrenergic blocker. Prazosin was the original hypertension pill
[01:14:29] <AzumaHazuki> turns out alpha blockers aren't great for high blood pressure, but they somehow help with PTSD nightmares?

[01:17:03] <systemd> ✓ Sub-ccess! "03The Genetics of Relatively Healthy Obesity" (16p) -> https://soylentnews.org
[01:17:24] <Fnord666> good dept line!
[01:18:55] <kyonko2> AzumaHazuki: maybe you make people nervous because you work at a hospital and look like a witch
[01:19:00] <kyonko2> how do you do your make up?
[01:19:23] <kyonko2> I mean, I do look like a wizard, but then again, I don't deal with people
[01:19:29] <AzumaHazuki> i don't. well, except on interviews. i'm not exactly a crunchy granola dyke but i don't do makeup, just healthy food, daily showers, and Dr. Bronner's soap
[01:20:05] <AzumaHazuki> what makes people nervous, i think, is the constant serious face and deathly silence, plus i move really, really fast. that may unnerve people
[01:20:39] <kyonko2> oh everyone knew I was the weirdest non-retard on the psych floor and I never got the geodon shot
[01:20:51] <kyonko2> they were taking in a lot of idiot savants
[01:21:21] <AzumaHazuki> you mentioned "witch." i kind of do look like a certain girl who becomes a "witch" of sorts, one Akemi Homura. Which is, like, the second or third time-traveling animated lesbian I'm a good fit with
[01:21:24] <kyonko2> there was a developer from red hat there that only age cereal
[01:21:48] * AzumaHazuki wonders why there's this common trope in anime of gay girls being tall, scary, silent, and often time travelers or serial reincarnators
[01:21:52] <kyonko2> I mean I only did 3 weeks there in 2016
[01:22:10] <kyonko2> I did everything I could to get out quick
[01:22:29] <kyonko2> eat my 3 meals, eat my snacks
[01:22:42] <kyonko2> I'd wake up for breakfast then go back to bed, then wake up for lunch then go back to bed
[01:22:55] <kyonko2> I finished my plate
[01:23:16] <kyonko2> they had an ekg at the enterance of the psych ward because of the geodon
[01:23:19] <AzumaHazuki> see, i remember you getting really annoyed when i first suggested you might need/be on an antipsychotic. >>;
[01:23:31] <AzumaHazuki> and, yes, ziprasidone has serious long-QT potential
[01:24:07] <kyonko2> no matter what hapens, I'm not getting social security disability payments
[01:24:19] <kyonko2> I got red stamped as "RECOVERED"
[01:24:32] <kyonko2> I got them for like 3 years
[01:25:00] <kyonko2> I got examined by a 90 year old doctor lol
[01:25:44] <AzumaHazuki> don't put me on a level with you...my problem is being too sane. i don't have the comforting barriers of delusion and ignorance most people sustain themselves with
[01:26:12] <kyonko2> https://i.pinimg.com
[01:26:27] <kyonko2> oh but I do have comforting delusion
[01:26:41] <kyonko2> I just pretend I am in a loving relationship with someone
[01:26:46] <kyonko2> my imaginary wife
[01:26:47] <AzumaHazuki> ...uhhhhh...
[01:26:57] <AzumaHazuki> is this a bad time for a "your waifu is trash" joke?
[01:27:16] <kyonko2> nah
[01:27:28] <kyonko2> my waifu is very much a real human being who liked me back in 8th grade
[01:27:39] <kyonko2> compared to you? you are the better human
[01:27:55] <AzumaHazuki> key word "liked." i know i'm not really in a position to say this, but as Elsa says...let it go, let it go~
[01:28:15] <kyonko2> yeah AzumaHazuki and I knew I was going to die quite fast drinking soda and alcohol and smoking cigarettes
[01:28:39] <kyonko2> so just pretend everything is ok, and see what happens when you are 40 or something
[01:29:01] <kyonko2> mentals have a fuckton of co-morbidities
[01:29:41] <kyonko2> big data knows I'm not supposed to be healthy
[01:29:48] <kyonko2> its betting on you dying
[01:30:14] <kyonko2> WE ARE ALL DYING TO LIVE
[01:31:00] <kyonko2> AzumaHazuki: what milestone in your life did you decide to keep fighting?
[01:31:27] <kyonko2> the consequences of giving up are quite grave in nature
[01:31:42] <AzumaHazuki> i think i'm just too stubborn to die until there are truly no options left
[01:32:11] <AzumaHazuki> that said, i have the means, method, and knowledge to hand should it ever become necessary...and that makes it easier to live, because i know if the worst happens i get to go out painlessly on my own terms
[01:32:19] <AzumaHazuki> phrmacology is useful for something :)
[01:33:31] -!- Ethanol-fueled [Ethanol-fueled!~59bbad82@89.187.gil.xsv] has joined #soylent
[01:33:43] <AzumaHazuki> and speaking of mental ward escapees
[01:33:44] <Ethanol-fueled> Whoa doggies, I've been modded spam!
[01:33:46] <kyonko2> ok yeeah I get it
[01:34:15] <kyonko2> in other words AzumaHazuki, why did you not die inside like so many people do?
[01:34:40] <Ethanol-fueled> You know...Spam was a poisonous food created by the Jews to poison American GI's that needed a reliable meat source.
[01:34:49] <kyonko2> lol
[01:34:52] <AzumaHazuki> outward focus. i actually did die inside in a sense several times, including an episode of complete ego death during a meditation accident. thing is, i live for others anyway, so...
[01:34:54] <kyonko2> that makes sense
[01:35:13] <kyonko2> AzumaHazuki: does your hospital do ommmm shin mindfulness?
[01:35:26] <AzumaHazuki> i am not familiar with that school of meditation
[01:35:34] <Ethanol-fueled> They invented Captain America to goad America into the war effort, but in addition to that, America had to suffer for refusing Jewish Diaspora
[01:35:48] <Ethanol-fueled> so they invented SPAM, got military food contracts, and poisoned the GI's
[01:35:56] <kyonko2> poisoned how?
[01:36:05] <kyonko2> I never got poisoned by it, I always knew I had enough
[01:36:17] <AzumaHazuki> if you mean the mantra "oum ma ni pad me hum," that's a Sanskrit incantation intended to close the doors to rebirth in the six realms -- heaven, the asura realm, the human realm, the beast realm, the preta realm, and the hells
[01:36:51] -!- Ethanol-fueled has quit [Client Quit]
[01:36:56] <AzumaHazuki> it's something like "Hail, the jewel in the lotus, hail"
[01:36:57] <kyonko2> what does HR want from you?
[01:37:24] <AzumaHazuki> hell if i know, aside from "go get counseling." sounds to me like what they really want is not to have to do any work :V
[01:37:39] <kyonko2> don't they do mindfullness at the hospital itself?
[01:37:47] <kyonko2> or is this, see a shrink
[01:38:14] <kyonko2> by counselling, you mean the psychologist they make fat people see for bariatric surgery
[01:38:35] <AzumaHazuki> i'm under 130lb at 5'10" so no, i don't think they're going to have me go in for a lap band
[01:38:49] <AzumaHazuki> a couple of my co-workers weigh 1.5 or 2 of me
[01:39:01] <kyonko2> yes I know
[01:39:05] <kyonko2> they also smoke
[01:39:08] <kyonko2> "smoke"
[01:39:14] <kyonko2> vape, dip
[01:39:42] <kyonko2> the hospital I was at in 2016 bans nicotine use by employees
[01:39:52] <kyonko2> they are very over-worked, 12 hour shifts
[01:40:02] <kyonko2> and they do bully people
[01:40:50] <kyonko2> 5 to 10 years ago I would have been a pariah for what I ended up in the psych ward for
[01:40:57] <kyonko2> I was lucky
[01:42:43] <kyonko2> shit is real in there
[01:42:54] <kyonko2> laymen/normies think its a prison
[01:43:12] <kyonko2> this one bipolar guy actually thought he was in prison
[01:44:15] <kyonko2> the idiot savants actually knew what was going on
[01:44:34] <kyonko2> they aren't sheeple
[01:44:46] <kyonko2> and they all had kids
[01:45:14] <kyonko2> it reminded of me mcnamara's morons and forrest gump
[01:46:53] <kyonko2> they should re-make forrest gump in the 21st century but with covid19

[07:56:40] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - The US Air Force Quietly Admits the F-35 is a Failure - https://sylnt.us - eye-opening
[07:57:30] <FatPhil> why would they do that, now at least, after admitting it's a failure openly for well over a year?
[07:58:27] <FatPhil> a disgustingly over-budget failure at that.
[07:58:53] <FatPhil> never mind, good for MIC, as the money kept flowing.
[08:06:37] <kyonko> its the new math FatPhil
[08:09:50] <chromas> "At 15:30:08 UTC on Sun, 4 December 292,277,026,596 64-bit versions of the Unix time stamp will cease to work, as it will overflow the largest value that can be held in a signed 64-bit number. This is not anticipated to pose a problem, as this is considerably longer than the time it would take the Sun to theoretically expand to a red giant and swallow the Earth."
[08:09:50] <chromas> > As a sysadmin, I know that at that time there will still be a computer around running some old version of Redhat Shrike.
[08:13:26] <kyonko> why redhat shrike?
[08:24:13] <FatPhil> my phone's still running a 2.6.28 kernel, beat that!
[08:29:09] <kyonko> what is your phone FatPhil ? a Nokia Linux mini laptop phone?
[08:29:24] <kyonko> pocket laptop
[08:29:27] <kyonko> palmtop
[08:29:31] <kyonko> palmtop phone
[08:29:33] <FatPhil> n900 from ~2009-ish
[08:29:41] <kyonko> jesus
[08:29:53] <kyonko> who is your phone company?
[08:30:32] <FatPhil> technically, in this country I don't have one. I'm roaming.
[08:31:08] <inz> Mebbe I should start using my N950 again
[08:31:09] <FatPhil> but most phones/contracts are open in this part of the world. they give you a SIM, you stick it where you like
[08:31:12] <inz> It'd be great for ircing
[08:32:00] <FatPhil> neither of my n950s has stable enough s/w on it.
[08:32:14] <inz> yeah, that is a bit of a problem
[08:32:34] <inz> Not enough of those going around to gain any reasonable community
[08:32:52] <FatPhil> one drops keypresses, completely unusable, no idea how that image passed testing.
[08:33:35] <inz> Don't look at me, I wasn't subcontracting for Nokia at that point in time. ;)
[08:33:50] <FatPhil> did you ever grab any fiascos for your n950 - I'm collecting them.
[08:34:22] <inz> Unfortunately no.
[08:34:35] <FatPhil> g/f's s/w is much more stable than mine (she has the official developer model), but I didn't grab a copy of the matching fiasco.
[08:35:13] <inz> I got my N950 only afterwards from a colleague, when my daily driver broke
[08:35:17] <FatPhil> yes, I was good friends with the bottom of a dumpster...
[08:35:38] <kyonko> doesn't estonia have an internet user's id?
[08:35:51] <kyonko> I mean, internet driver's license
[08:37:37] <inz> hmm, I seem to be lacking a battery and backplate for my N900
[08:37:50] <inz> Let's see if good ol' N810 boots
[08:41:55] <inz> Yay, soylentnews.org works :) Not much else probably with the ancient browser
[08:42:17] <kyonko> I have dillo
[08:42:24] <inz> (well, no one had heard of letsencrypt in 2008, so that's obviously complaining)
[08:42:35] <kyonko> yeah fuck encryption
[08:42:43] <kyonko> encryption=deletion
[08:43:00] <kyonko> get a stroke and forget the passphrase
[08:43:19] <kyonko> nobody cares that you are into tranny porn
[08:43:22] <FatPhil> I have spare backplates for n900, that's the only bit that hasn't failed!
[08:44:10] <inz> I'm pretty sure it's somewhere(tm)
[08:44:37] <inz> Probably in the same place as the other device with cracked display
[08:47:25] <FatPhil> that's one part failure mode I've never had
[08:48:16] <inz> Fixing cars and phones in pockets don't seem to mix
[08:48:23] <inz> I've borked 2 displays that way
[08:53:13] <inz> What I probably should do is start eating dogfood and use my SFOS phones
[08:55:21] <FatPhil> a mate gave me his jolla, and it was just horrible to use
[08:56:05] <inz> Thanks a lot ;(
[08:56:05] <FatPhil> sometimes you swipe up to do something, sometimes you swipe down, other times you swipe left, and occasionally swipe right.
[08:56:36] <inz> My mrs didn't like it one bit when I got a jolla for the first time
[08:56:56] <inz> Mainly because half the time my phone didn't actually ring when she called me
[08:57:14] <FatPhil> kinda important functionality
[08:57:22] <FatPhil> which bit of jolla did you work on?
[08:57:26] <inz> For a phone... yeah maybe
[08:57:46] <inz> I now work for jolla, I didn't back when the phone was launched
[08:57:56] <FatPhil> ah, OK
[08:58:33] <inz> But I tend to find myself below the UI, but above kernel
[08:58:35] <FatPhil> most of my complaints are about the UI design itself, the implementation of retarded monkey gestures was perfect
[08:59:16] <inz> The most annyoing thing was when I had a jolla as a personal phone, and an android for a work phone
[08:59:37] <inz> Always trying the wrong thing
[09:00:15] <inz> Nowadays android has edge-swipe-gestures too
[09:00:16] <FatPhil> most of my complaints about the n900, n950, and n9 were about UI/UX design too. I'm a consistency nazi, and these things were dripping with illogic
[09:01:02] <FatPhil> when I started at Samsung, I was briefly given a small android phone - really liked it, the swipey text input was excellent, quicker than n900 typing.
[09:01:52] <FatPhil> but I was obliged to upgrade to their latest model about a month later, and they'd "customised" their android so that it was no longer particularly androidy - and everything became illogical or unpredictable.
[09:02:22] <FatPhil> it was also heading down the phablet path, which I didn't like.

[09:04:04] <inz> (and is part of the reason why I run lineage on all my android devices)
[09:07:56] <FatPhil> it literally is being different for being different's sake.

[09:10:53] <kyonko> what a fucking joke
[09:10:55] <inz> (some models can be unlocked with shorting some test pins, but that requires opening the device)
[09:11:08] <kyonko> yeah I can crack open certain vintage of androids
[09:11:18] <kyonko> :)

[17:11:11] <Teckla> I'll never understand how the dems can justify illegal immigrants being more important than U.S. citizens.
[17:11:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> more votes for them.
[17:11:26] <Teckla> It's not that I don't feel sympathy and empathy for people wanting to come here for a better life. Not at all.
[17:11:50] <Teckla> But I feel our elected representatives have a duty to look after the interest of U.S. citizens first.
[17:12:02] <Teckla> And democrats don't seem to do that. Which I find terribly frustrating.
[17:12:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, well, some people are so fucking stupid they'll buy into anything as long as it's metaphorically thumbing their nose at their parents
[17:12:44] <Teckla> Good point.
[17:12:58] <Teckla> In a sense, I'm glad I'm old. I'll check out before the shit really hits the fan. Probably.
[17:13:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'm not particularly worried anyway. i'm armed and that's not going to change no matter what laws get passed.
[17:14:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> sides, i never did bother following laws unless they either made sense or were too much bother for the return of breaking them
[17:15:49] <Teckla> After my kid leaves the nest, I was planning to buy a firearm. Partly as a hobby (I think hobby shooting would be fun), partly because as I get older, I'd like something around for defense (when seconds count, the police are only minutes away...)
[17:15:56] <Teckla> And I'm getting older, I can't fight off intruders.
[17:16:36] <Teckla> I'm quite pro-2nd Amendment. Even if I didn't "believe" in the 2nd, I'd *still* be pro-2nd, because one thing we really DON'T need is our Bill of Rights getting watered down any more than it already has been! imo.
[17:16:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> should buy one before. more than one really. kids need to be raised with guns or they miss some very important learning.
[17:17:54] <Teckla> I think you are probably right about that. And I would love to do some hobby shooting with my daughter (after proper training, and respect has been developed for the tools). But... the wife...
[17:18:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> even if it's just a .22 for shooting cans, you can't teach responsible gun use and safety without a gun.
[17:18:09] <Teckla> ^ Truth.
[17:18:27] <Teckla> Hmmm. I might be able to talk her (the wife) into something "wimpy" like a .22
[17:18:40] <Teckla> TheMightyBuzzard: Do you have any specific recommendations?
[17:18:45] <Teckla> (For a starter .22)
[17:18:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> inform the wife thus: attempted rapes are only successful 7% of the time if a woman is armed.
[17:18:54] <Teckla> TheMightyBuzzard: wow!!! very interesting.
[17:19:07] <Teckla> (If it's not clear, I hate both Democrats and Republicans, heh)
[17:19:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> regardless of if the attacker is
[17:22:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> eh, i'd say just a cheap little .22 semi-automatic rifle of most any sort. if you're getting a pistol for target shooting, get a .22 competition semi-auto with a nice long barrel.
[17:23:29] <Teckla> TheMightyBuzzard: Thank you!
[17:23:43] <requerdanos> And for shooting would-be rapists?
[17:24:16] <Teckla> I *suspect* most would-be rapists would leave, even if shot by a mere .22 ;)
[17:24:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> .50 desert eagle
[17:24:28] <Teckla> haha
[17:24:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> hollowpoints
[17:24:49] <requerdanos> A .50 cal will make a hole in an armored vehicle.
[17:25:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> depends on the round. you can put holes in armored vehicles with the right 7.76mm rounds and the wrong .50 rounds will just bounce off
[17:26:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> Teckla, .17 HMR would also be perfectly acceptable. smaller but much faster than a .22
[17:27:09] <Teckla> TheMightyBuzzard: *jots that down* Thank you again. I am thinking this education would be good for my kid, and a nice way to spend time together. I appreciate the advice.
[17:27:11] <Teckla> TheMightyBuzzard++
[17:27:12] <Bender> karma - themightybuzzard: 413
[17:27:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> usually easier to find too
[17:27:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> more expensive though
[17:27:48] <Teckla> Expensive is okay, as long as it's not crazy expensive.
[17:28:22] <Teckla> I don't mind spending extra on useful, long-lasting tools.
[17:28:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> well, you don't want an afternoon's practice costing $50
[17:28:43] <Teckla> Ah.
[17:28:55] <Teckla> Good point. An additional data point to consider.
[17:29:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> you can pick up 500 rounds of .22 longrifle for like $30
[17:29:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> and you can burn through a hundred on a nice day of shooting targets really easily
[17:30:49] <Teckla> Wow. Dirt cheap.
[17:31:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> pellet gun wouldn't suck to teach safety with. strong enough to injure and show real damage to things but not likely to kill anything bigger than a cat.
[17:32:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> basic teaching i mean. don't point it at anything you aren't okay shooting. always be aware of where it's pointed. don't keep your finger on the trigger. a gun is always loaded. yadda yadda yadda
[17:33:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> yelling shall be involved initially
[17:33:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> anyway, tis time for me to grab some yonder
[17:36:02] <Teckla> Yeah. I would definitely take a good beginner's course.

[18:25:17] <Runaway1956> Teckla - I'll voice a differing opinion from TheMightyBuzzard
[18:25:39] <Runaway1956> If you only intend to have one weapon around
[18:26:00] <Runaway1956> I would go with a .22 Long Rifle
[18:26:11] <Runaway1956> bolt action or semiautomatice doesn't matter much
[18:26:31] <Runaway1956> you can find either one at bargain basement prices just over $100
[18:26:45] <Runaway1956> the ammo is the thing -
[18:27:07] <Runaway1956> walking into the average gun store, you don't see pellet gun ammo on display
[18:27:22] <Runaway1956> there is almost always .22 ammo available though
[18:28:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> Runaway1956, yes, semi-auto matters. bolt action is a huge pain in the ass unless you're not going to get a second shot in time for it to do any good.
[18:29:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> plus, using one is how you learn to deal with jams in the future. it's like having a stick shift as your first car.
[18:31:26] <Fnord666> I am apparently older than dirt. I remember getting bricks (500 rnds) of .22 for <$8 US
[18:32:38] <Fnord666> Lots of ranges also offer basic firearm safety courses if you aren't comfortable with them yourself.
[18:33:39] <Fnord666> I agree that .22 is a good first firearm. Personally I really like the Ruger 10/22.
[18:33:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> we used to go pick up a 1000 round bucket of assorted .22 shells for like $10
[18:34:56] <Runaway1956> My early days, I couldn't afford a brick of ammo - but I remember paying 35 cents, then 40 cents, then 50 cents per box
[18:35:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> one thing i'd do for sure, give the child a toy gun of similar style to carry around the house and don't let them ever carry a real gun until they don't make mistakes with where the dangerous end is pointed ever.
[18:36:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> or a real gun with the bolt n firing pin n magazine physically removed.
[18:37:02] <Runaway1956> Oh - I have a vidya for you Buzzard . . .

[18:49:20] <Runaway1956> but high port is going to be safer, more often

[20:26:16] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Why is the DOS Path Character "\"? - https://sylnt.us
[20:31:33] <FatPhil> IIRC it's both \ and /, if you look at the original source
[20:43:26] <FatPhil> but maybe I should read the story first
[21:53:19] <Runaway1956> My wife is such an unreasonable person . . .
[21:53:36] <Runaway1956> "You burnt supper, YOU wash the pots and pans!"
[21:53:59] <Runaway1956> Isn't that against the natural order of things, or something?
[21:55:08] <FatPhil> never cook anything that can burn on
[21:55:47] <Runaway1956> Baked a rice dish, rice stuck to bottom - I think a little more water would have solved that
[21:56:14] <Runaway1956> Us part time cooks have problems remembering things like that though.

[21:58:06] <FatPhil> and I make no apologies to any frenchmen reading that total mangling
[21:58:11] <Runaway1956> Are you speaking East Stonian again?
[21:58:29] <Runaway1956> I don't recognize the first or the last word
[21:58:55] <FatPhil> fromage = cheezwiz
[21:59:01] <Runaway1956> lol
[21:59:46] <Runaway1956> Even as a kid, cheese out of an aerosol can seemed gross
[22:00:24] <FatPhil> I'm happy to say I've never encountered any of these monstrosities
[22:01:16] <Runaway1956> There are some abominations that I just won't touch - and since you mention a dairy product, I'll add all the "whipped cream" abominations found in stores
[22:01:42] <Runaway1956> If I want whipped cream, I'll buy a pint of cream and some powdered sugar, and whip it myself
[22:04:15] <requerdanos> same with butter, but with salt instead of the powdered sugar, right?
[22:06:26] <Runaway1956> Of course not - you can find perfectly good butter in the stores
[22:06:53] * Runaway1956 prefers Land o' Lakes but will settle for most store brands
[22:07:46] <requerdanos> You can find packaged whipped cream in addition to the monstrosity products with names that kind of sound like, but aren't, whipped cream.
[22:08:23] <Runaway1956> Hmmmm - I'd have to actually look on the shelves to verify that
[22:09:18] <requerdanos> Harder to find than, say, Slime A Whip or what ever, but land o lakes is one of the brands that sells real whipped cream in a can
[22:09:47] <Runaway1956> Interesting - I didn't know that.
[22:10:22] <Runaway1956> I really don't think my local grocer carries it, and I've never noticed it in other local stores
[22:10:46] <requerdanos> I think that somehow most people don't know the difference, though I don't really see how that could be possible
[22:11:13] <Runaway1956> "creamer" is another sore spot with me -
[22:11:42] <Runaway1956> waitress asks if I want cream with my coffee, I ask "Is it real?" and most often, the waitress has no idea
[22:11:55] <requerdanos> again, how could she not know
[22:12:02] <requerdanos> but people don't seem to, by and large
[22:13:06] <requerdanos> we keep half and half to go in coffee, use real butter (not "whipped spread" or whatever), etc. And of course whip our cream or occasionally go with the land o lakes
[22:15:04] <requerdanos> I also find that basmati rice is more tolerant and seems to not cook onto the bottom of the pot.
[22:19:34] <Runaway1956> I'm not sure it's avaialable around here - I'll look next time I'm wandering down the aisles
