[14:18:45] <requerdanos> or, some twits cnat spel
[14:22:31] * c0lo is saddened. Cooks are usually nice guys
[14:24:13] <requerdanos> I dunno, I have worked in some restaurants that would make me question that
[14:24:26] <requerdanos> maybe this explains some thinigs
[14:25:43] <requerdanos> This is pretty alarming to me: https://www.foxnews.com
[14:25:44] <systemd> ^ 03Mayhem in Washington, DC, as Trump supporters, opponents clash; at least 4 stabbed, 23 arrested
[14:35:13] <c0lo> It'd be wise to follow Biden example and let the Proud Boys grieve (and show they monkey butts). But... it is what it is.

[15:41:13] <requerdanos> President-elect Biden did, in fact, won.
[15:45:58] <chromas> Can't win before the votes
[15:46:28] <chromas> Just like the food in the shopping cart isn't yours until you actually pay for it, even if you know with 100% certainty you're going to pay for it
[15:46:59] <requerdanos> food in my shopping cart isn't available to other shoppers; biden's popular votes aren't available to other candidates.
[15:47:06] <requerdanos> this isn't hard, really it isn't.
[15:47:21] <chromas> you could always put stuff back though
[15:47:37] <requerdanos> well, your insipid shopping card analogy falls through there, I admit
[15:49:07] <chromas> the anal ogy succeeds because the event hasn't happened yet even if you know it will
[15:49:29] <c0lo> requerdanos. Whatevs. He didn't win in a landslide, To win in a landslide one needs 71M votes or so. Biden had only 80M+
[15:49:57] <chromas> There aren't that many electoral votes
[15:50:08] <requerdanos> biden has the votes for 306 electoral votes--even if one denies the fact--which is a "massive landslide" according to the president.
[15:50:41] <requerdanos> now, it isn't a massive landslide, and the president's an idiot, but it's still a win.
[15:51:29] <c0lo> Electoral votes doesn't count for landsliding, you can trust Trump's expertise on winning in ladslides.
[15:51:43] <chromas> well as pointed out before, they haven't actually voted yet, so the landslide hasn't happened yet
[15:52:04] <requerdanos> while they have not voted, their votes are largely predetermined.
[15:52:17] <requerdanos> by an event in the past.
[15:52:21] <requerdanos> which is over.
[15:52:26] <requerdanos> complete.
[15:52:27] <requerdanos> done.
[15:53:02] <chromas> yes, just like your grocery purchase is largely over once you've filled the cart. complete. done
[15:53:38] <c0lo> chromas, is that on the line of "If a voter shit in the woods and there's no elector around, does the vote still stink of fraud?"
[15:53:41] <requerdanos> well, as you point out, I could decide to change the contents of my cart. the election doesn't work that way.
[15:54:40] * chromas sneaks in and convinces them to vote for jojo
[15:55:05] <requerdanos> the cart's contents are determined by an ongoing process. The vote was, like it or not, last month, and it not ongoing.
[15:55:33] <requerdanos> even after purchase I could return my items. still ongoing, you see, unlike the election.
[15:56:33] <requerdanos> I voted for jojo.
[16:01:37] <requerdanos> I hope most voters decide to put back their votes for the Rs and Ds and pick up a vote for Jojo.
[16:02:03] <requerdanos> I was talking to some guy on Internet who says that's a thing
