[02:12:27] <AzumaHazuki> c0lo, my fear is it doesn't matter. they've pozzed this country with their insanity so badly it may not even matter any longer. they have 74 million brainwashed zombie cannon fodder
[02:12:59] <AzumaHazuki> nations die when a critical percentage of their populace abandons the use of reason, because it can no longer plan ahead
[02:13:19] <c0lo> You overestimate the number of still zombies, methinks
[02:14:04] <AzumaHazuki> i don't think i do at all. once someone sells their soul, there is no coming back
[02:16:35] <c0lo> 1 vote in one election doesn't mean a soul has been sold. You don't hear "soul being sold" to basket-of-deplorables Hillary.

[02:22:42] <AzumaHazuki> actually, c0lo, i wonder about that...i pulled that lever for her only against some heavy internal resistance and only because Trump was that much worse
[02:22:57] <AzumaHazuki> i don't like that dynastic family. i don't like what the Clinton admin became in its second term
[02:23:34] <c0lo> Same did a good deal of Trump voters.
[02:25:57] <Bytram> just because you've applied the breaks, it still takes a while to not only slow down, but to then put it in reverse and only then can one accelerte in the other direction.
[02:26:50] <Bytram> its taken decades to get to this point... we ain't turing thigns around in 100 days.
[02:27:06] <Bytram> and, with that, g'night everybody
[02:29:03] <c0lo> bytram, the level of approval Biden policies receives show that the brakes work. Bottom line, biden has 1.5y to turn the jobs around. Spending on infrastructure do that in the beginning.
[02:29:28] <AzumaHazuki> it's amazing what he HAS done in 100 days
[02:29:43] * c0lo wonder what "applying the breaks" could mean
[02:29:44] <AzumaHazuki> unfortunately, the damage that's been done will take at least 50 years, BEST CASE, to heal
[02:29:53] <AzumaHazuki> realistically? it's not happening. the US is about to collapse.

[02:37:53] <AzumaHazuki> i'd have less of a problem with this if there weren't collateral damage
[02:38:22] <AzumaHazuki> this pandemic is highlighting the serious flaw in, especially, the way Americans in general think. It's unveiling a disturbing selfishness, one that completely ignores reality
[02:38:52] <AzumaHazuki> if covid only killed the selfish, willfully-stupid assholes who didn't do their part not to spread it i'd be cheering. but innocents suffer, sicken, and die because of those people
[02:42:08] <c0lo> Well, not like one couldn't refuse to attend his parties.

[02:42:52] <progo> didn't they used to have whole crying rooms for finals?
[02:43:06] <AzumaHazuki> the correct, non-stupid-asshole response would be "what the fuck is wrong with you?! NO i'm not coming your party, what the hell"
[02:44:09] <c0lo> Were those rooms stuffed with stuffed animals, progo?
[02:44:26] <progo> probably
[02:45:46] <c0lo> Well, yes, Zumi, not all people are above stupid. There should be a law of nature concerning this, 'cause you can't fix them.

[05:04:19] <c0lo> #tell aristarchus https://www.vice.com
[05:04:19] <MrPlow> Okay, I'll tell them next time I see them.
[05:09:15] <AzumaHazuki> why is there a white lives matter movement? we don't need one. the entire country's body of law, politics, and social institutions is predicated on that premise
[05:10:48] <c0lo> You don't. Others do feel the need. Viscerally, can't be explained rationally
[05:11:22] <AzumaHazuki> oh yes it can: they have to, shock-horror-gasp-attack-of-the-vapors, respect people who aren't white
[05:11:56] <AzumaHazuki> whenever the dominant group starts appropriating the language of the ACTUAL downtrodden, what it means isn't that they want equality: they want to retain their position at the top
[05:12:24] <AzumaHazuki> it's obvious if you poke people enough. Runaway for example got extremely overheated one day and basically admitted he's a dyed-in-the-wool nativist and fears Hispanics "outbreeding us"
[05:13:02] <AzumaHazuki> note also the incredible emphasis these logs are placing on "acting normal." Not "BEING normal," mind you, but *acting* normal. In other words, disguising their true intent to recruit an army of clueless useful idiots
[05:14:53] <AzumaHazuki> ...on the other hand, it's very nice to see my hypotheses about Bayesian Poisoning being validated in real time :) fight extremism with ridicule and undermining from within!

[06:24:18] <AzumaHazuki> he's probably not wrong though, unfortunately. ever hear of "missing white woman syndrome?"
[06:24:34] <AzumaHazuki> i really hope it doesn't come to that, but at the rate things are going...
[06:28:50] <c0lo> Form get to matter sometime just as much as the content, Zumi. Hillary wasn't wrong either with the substance of her basket of deplarables.
[06:30:13] <FatPhil> no you!
[06:30:56] <FatPhil> there's as much deplorability in the dems. they're all in someone's pocket.
[06:32:11] <AzumaHazuki> actually, no, that's where there's a difference. the two parties are NOT the same. I don't like either, but ten thousand times i would rather have even the present corrupted democrats
[06:32:33] <AzumaHazuki> and that's not tribal. that is a clear-eyed, sad, mournful acknowledgement of how low both have sunk and how much difference still remains despite that
[06:34:06] <AzumaHazuki> ...the analogy i usually use is "you are to be executed by drowning. there are two giant vats, a blue one full of water and a red one full of beer-and-chilli diarrhea. which will you drown in?"
[06:35:10] <FatPhil> lesser evil is still evil.
[06:36:36] <AzumaHazuki> yes, it is. and it's also still less evil
[06:36:41] <c0lo> Someone put it on the better form "Blessed are the poor in spirit" sounds a lot better than "basket of deplorables"
[06:37:03] <AzumaHazuki> "poor in spirit" doesn't mean "assholes," it means humble or not haughty
[06:37:52] <c0lo> Teetotaller, Zumi?
[06:38:18] <AzumaHazuki> not Jesus :D
[06:38:31] <c0lo> Or just "can't afford spirits"? (grin)

[06:43:27] <FatPhil> Two do - one of them must be wrong.

[07:25:58] <c0lo> yeah, but none came forth
[07:30:02] <AzumaHazuki> we really do get into some dark humor in here...
[07:30:09] <AzumaHazuki> i suppose, if the choice is laugh or cry...
[07:32:24] <c0lo> has to do with a geekish social ineptitude
[07:32:35] <AzumaHazuki> so...new name for the alt-right: Q Qucks Qlan, Y'all Qaeda, Vanilla ISIS, or Branch Stupidians?
[07:32:38] <AzumaHazuki> i cannot decide
[07:33:09] <AzumaHazuki> though i do favor the first since they've been well and truly cuckolded by their political masters, and love throwing the word around about everyone else
[07:33:51] <c0lo> Neanderthal thinkers
[07:34:19] <AzumaHazuki> that is an insult to Neanderthals. They actually had bigger braincases than modern H. sapiens do, though possibly they didn't have quite as well-organized a neural network
[07:35:13] <c0lo> don't blame me, I didn't vote for Biden
[07:36:16] <AzumaHazuki> i did, and cringed the entire time. he's right of reagan and nearly as senile. in essence i voted for not-trump-and-also-for-who-comes-along-with-biden-in-the-cabinet
[07:36:50] <AzumaHazuki> now, it is just possible Biden is playing "Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass," but i doubt it

[12:29:11] <Bytram> so, with no audio, it was mostly looking at a bunch of people in a conference room looking at displays and paying attention to whomever was speaking
[12:31:15] <c0lo> bytram, that is exactly what actually happened. A bunch of people looking at displays and listening to whoever was speaking. I didn't get better listening to them.

[13:28:37] <Bytram> How long will it take to undo their indoctrination? These people have kids who they will continue to guide in what they think is right. I'm seeing an analog to the 60's and 70's.
[13:29:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> kids are notoriously rebellious to authority.
[13:31:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'm not especially worried about the gen-z ones who don't spend years n years in higher ed, they already can't stand gen-y
[13:33:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> i mean, it's not like gen-x turned out to be anything like hippies.
[13:34:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> so once gen-z has displaced a majority of the gen-y folks in education, the indoctrination will go away.
[13:36:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> and if that don't happen, the whole industry will end up collapsing because less and less people will be wanting to send their kids to brainwashing centers.
[13:37:19] <Ingar> make brainwashing mandatory. punish parents who don't obey

[18:30:51] <Runaway1956> 39.1 seconds of flight time - does that beat wilbur and orville's first flight? Can't remember . . .
[18:31:06] <Fnord666> yes
[18:31:52] <Runaway1956> I have gotten the impression that they're going to fly it a couple times, then abandon it
[18:32:13] <Runaway1956> too bad they can't pick it up with the rover, and keep it for future use

[20:13:43] <chromas> 12Weather: 12Message No weather data found. Internet connection working? 
[20:13:46] <chromas> :(
[20:46:17] <Runaway1956> Yeah, inxi has a lot of output if you do it all
[20:47:08] <Runaway1956> and a lot of it is worthless nonsense unless you're troubleshooting or something
[21:03:59] <FatPhil> Almost all IRC clients worth their salt can interact with command line programs. All command line programs. There's no reason at all for a command line program to have to know anything about IRC.
[21:04:18] <FatPhil> Basically, what I'm saying is that inxi is crap because it can't send email.
[21:04:37] <FatPhil> And doesn't have more than a rudimentary implementation of a subset of common lisp.

[22:36:40] <FatPhil> because the concept of data going from its source to its destination via a medium that will only suffer minimal exponential losses through attenuation rather than one that follows the inverse square law, is absurd.

[22:46:40] <FatPhil> Oh, the market's stupid too, if that's true - as ciggy sales will go way up when the active component that people are actually after, whether they realise it or not, is reduced.
[22:47:20] <FatPhil> This is not financial advice: BUY PHILLIP MORRIS, BUY IMPERIAL BRANDS, ...
[22:52:19] <bacterium> hehehe yeah the smokers are an addicted bunch
[22:52:47] <FatPhil> dooood, bacteria are way more addicted!
[22:53:30] <FatPhil> As proof that that wasn't financial advice: I just sold all my imperial brands shares, about 6 weeks ago.
[22:53:59] <FatPhil> I never bought them in the first place. So don't judge my stock picking.
[22:54:06] <bacterium> if uncle jo wasn't mortally afraid to hurt the executive feelings, he would mandate plain packaging, which would probably crush the demand among youth

[22:57:10] <chromas> inxi supporting lisp would be neat since it's just a perl script
[22:58:42] <FatPhil> so's sirc, and that understands command line external programs
[22:58:56] <FatPhil> lisp's just a regexp, right?
[22:59:03] <FatPhil> Who's with me?
[22:59:17] <FatPhil> Can lisp be "done" with a regexp or not?
[22:59:44] <chromas> anything's possible if your expressions are regular enough
[22:59:58] <FatPhil> (Handy hint - I have written better perl scripts than Abigail)
[23:00:20] <FatPhil> which might mean nothing to anyone, in which case, you need to up your nerd cred.
[23:02:27] <FatPhil> Anyway, just finished watching /Edge of Darkness/ (1985), and deciding that a Macallen whisky before deat^H^H^H^Hbed is appropriate..
[23:05:53] <Bytram> FatPhil: if inxi is Turing Complete, then you write any program in it, including a Lisp interpreter... so long as you are potentially willing to wait until the heat death of the universe for it to complete.
[23:07:04] <bacterium> FatPhil: i remember reading that regexp are not turing complete, so they can't do lisp
[23:07:32] <bacterium> i also remember, correct me if i am wrong, regexp can't even parse xml correctly
[23:08:30] <bacterium> it's just a glob on drugs, not a real programming language

[23:32:23] <chromas> yes
[23:33:58] <Bytram> chromas: glad to know, thanks!
[23:34:07] <Bytram> :/

[23:36:27] * chromas mixes batteries of different brands and discharge states
[23:37:55] <FatPhil> bacterium: it was Abigail who proved that perl regexps were turing complete, some time in the late 90s, IIRC.
[23:38:00] <FatPhil> hence the reference.
[23:38:10] <FatPhil> I'm not as stupid as you look ;-p
[23:39:55] <chromas> That's not saying a lot
