    Dec 2, 2016 12:12 PM - TimeCrush: So what happened with the Mask? Because it looks like it didn't go where I intended it to go lol
    Dec 2, 2016 12:20 PM - SoL DarkLord: It appeared on the floor, apparently.
    Dec 2, 2016 12:24 PM - TimeCrush: Really flubbed that one
    Dec 2, 2016 12:25 PM - TimeCrush: In my perfect world I sent it to that half bullman that gave us tea.
    Dec 2, 2016 12:25 PM - TimeCrush: And then I was going to meet up with him and show him my awesome tea-cup, taking in his new found hyper-intelligence.
    Dec 2, 2016 1:03 PM - Statboy: you randomly opened dimensional door to throw the mask through without noting a destination. So it opened to the last spot you DD'd to because it was still in range
    Dec 2, 2016 1:04 PM - Statboy: so you chucked it behind the Clockwork Golem that turns into a wall
    Dec 2, 2016 1:04 PM - Statboy: the Bullman was out of range by 50 miles or so
    Dec 2, 2016 1:05 PM - Statboy: The Sphinx went to check on the pyramid, found the mask and returned it
    Dec 2, 2016 1:09 PM - VaultBot: and its not letting me on.... the rage is building!!!
    Dec 2, 2016 1:09 PM - Statboy: Farside fell over himself being the first to get it
    Dec 2, 2016 1:13 PM - TimeCrush: lol fantastic.
    Dec 2, 2016 1:14 PM - TimeCrush: Just for hypothetical sake, and because I was really getting invested in the idea: Can you spin me the side story of what would've happened if the bull guy wore the mask and I went back over there?
    Dec 2, 2016 1:16 PM - Statboy: i thought about that, he's Lawful, so he'd probably give it to the authorities. I'd flip a coin and it would go to either Septi or Deka. Septi, would deliver it back to you guys, Deka would put it on and attempt to join the cult. You guys would find her and a handful of other Nethysians in the desert
    Dec 2, 2016 1:24 PM - TimeCrush: Neat. I was expecting some transcended cow being made, but I like knowing what would actually go down as well.
    Dec 2, 2016 2:20 PM - Statboy: lol, you wanted to create hinduism
    Dec 2, 2016 2:21 PM - TimeCrush: See guys, Memsie isn't evil
    Dec 2, 2016 4:56 PM - VintagePC: I love how nobody bothered to sense motive memsie when he said it was in an alternate dimension
    Dec 2, 2016 5:00 PM - VintagePC: well played I guess, that's totally something we believed you would do
    Dec 2, 2016 5:24 PM - Statboy: you guys don't get to sense motive/ diplomacy/ intimidate each other. You have to RP that shit
    Dec 2, 2016 5:40 PM - VintagePC: you know what I meant - that we just took it at face value

    Dec 3, 2016 at 8:21 AM - TimeCrush: I actually had no idea what you guys knew, and what you didn't know. Since I flubbed the dimension door with a nat 1, I started getting paranoid that Stat was just whispering you all "You see Memsie open a portal and see ____ on the other side."
    Dec 3, 2016 at 8:22 AM - TimeCrush: And I mean, if my intentions were actully followed through on, I think bullguy is totally a trustworthy safe keeper.
    Dec 3, 2016 at 8:49 AM - VintagePC: all stat told me was I saw a flash of light from the body and no mask
    Dec 3, 2016 at 9:35 AM - VintagePC: damnit zachtronics
    Dec 3, 2016 at 9:36 AM - VintagePC: y u make games that are like work but somehow still fun
    Dec 3, 2016 at 9:58 AM - Statboy: only Argor was in the room with you

    Dec 4, 2016 11:07 PM - TimeCrush: Lol, only related in ways that aren't related. Just ate coneys at like 11:00pm downtown Detroit at Lafayette coney island, while watching the first snow.
    Dec 4, 2016 11:25 PM - TimeCrush: English.
    Dec 4, 2016 11:25 PM - TimeCrush: You hear that?
    Dec 4, 2016 11:26 PM - TimeCrush: Who is watching Hitman?
    Dec 4, 2016 11:29 PM - TimeCrush: Spiffy had a stream going. Got it

    Dec 5, 2016 6:54 AM - Hexalan: please give me yur social security # and birthdate
    Dec 5, 2016 9:20 AM - Statboy: Anybody keeping an eye on European politics? It's been very Trump-esc. Iceland, France, Italy, Germany, all of those countries have their top political parties (both right wing and left wing) falling to anti-EU, pro Capitalist, pro Immigration reform, candidates
    Dec 5, 2016 9:20 AM - VaultBot: are you kidding?
    Dec 5, 2016 9:21 AM - Statboy: all 4 of those countries could have small third parties winning in their upcoming elections. Though Icelandic politics is a bit more complicated than that, still its exciting
    Dec 5, 2016 9:25 AM - theLumberJack: I have been following iceland, i would include it in the turmoil but wouldn't necessarily call it trump esc
    Dec 5, 2016 9:25 AM - theLumberJack: though im mostly following the political shenanigans here in nova scotia
    Dec 5, 2016 9:26 AM - theLumberJack: the provincial government suspended classes for public schools because the teachers union declared they were going to work to rule
    Dec 5, 2016 9:26 AM - Statboy: Yah, they just have such a different way of doing things. But still offering a pirate party the chance to govern has never happened. It allows for concessions to me made that are Trump-esc
    Dec 5, 2016 9:27 AM - Statboy: I had not heard about that LJ, I'll have to find an article
    Dec 5, 2016 9:27 AM - Statboy: or two
    Dec 5, 2016 9:27 AM - theLumberJack: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-...aren-casey-teachers-school-closures-1.3880918
    Dec 5, 2016 9:29 AM - Statboy: I don't know how it is in Canada, but in America its really bad right now. Students textbooks and standardized tests are openly attempting revisionist history. Which side you get depends on which party is in control in your state
    Dec 5, 2016 9:30 AM - Statboy: most teenagers I've talked to understand this is happening and have become much more skeptical, which is good
    Dec 5, 2016 9:30 AM - VaultBot: sweet, tf2ware is back up and i haven't had a 4k camera
    Dec 5, 2016 9:31 AM - theLumberJack: i went to highschool in VA
    Dec 5, 2016 9:32 AM - Statboy: depending on how old you are, you've seen it first hand
    Dec 5, 2016 9:33 AM - theLumberJack: 23
    Dec 5, 2016 9:33 AM - theLumberJack: we had SOL tests
    Dec 5, 2016 9:33 AM - theLumberJack: i corrected the history one a couple times
    Dec 5, 2016 9:35 AM - Statboy: lol
    Dec 5, 2016 9:35 AM - theLumberJack: my grade 11 us hisotry teacher tried to skip the war of 1812
    Dec 5, 2016 9:36 AM - theLumberJack: bow did i not let that fly
    Dec 5, 2016 9:36 AM - theLumberJack: *boy
    Dec 5, 2016 9:39 AM - Statboy: I've never taken a class that went over that war or the Barbary wars, the war's with Mexico, or our war with Cuba the Spanish-American war.
    Dec 5, 2016 9:39 AM - Statboy: I've taken a lot of history classes because I enjoy them
    Dec 5, 2016 9:40 AM - Statboy: Most people don't know Japan's reasoning for bombing Pearl Harbor and defacto declaring war on the US
    Dec 5, 2016 9:42 AM - theLumberJack: i too enjoy history
    Dec 5, 2016 9:42 AM - theLumberJack: i dont take them for electives though
    Dec 5, 2016 9:42 AM - theLumberJack: i take polic sci courses for electives
    Dec 5, 2016 9:42 AM - Statboy: When I was in HS i hated political science, and avoided it all costs
    Dec 5, 2016 9:43 AM - theLumberJack: the irony
    Dec 5, 2016 9:45 AM - Statboy: Staboy 15 years ago, is not very similar to today's Statboy. Getting old sucks, it'll happen to you too
    Dec 5, 2016 9:48 AM - theLumberJack: i already have bursitis in my hip
    Dec 5, 2016 9:49 AM - Statboy: rofl, bursitis isn't an old person's disease, but hip troubles are. I feel your pain though, I've had bursa sacks in my little girl ankles
    Dec 5, 2016 10:05 AM - theLumberJack: i fell on my hip while at sea
    Dec 5, 2016 10:13 AM - theLumberJack: im taking a course on foreign policy in theory and practice this winter
    Dec 5, 2016 10:35 AM - Statboy: that might be the most old person thing i've heard
    Dec 5, 2016 10:42 AM - theLumberJack: it's my last elective
    Dec 5, 2016 10:42 AM - theLumberJack: my other one was titled law & politics
    Dec 5, 2016 10:44 AM - theLumberJack: my program only lets me have two non technical electives
    Dec 5, 2016 11:32 AM - theLumberJack: 3 technical electives though. those were fun mostly
    Dec 5, 2016 11:58 AM - Statboy: I was picturing an old man falling on his hip at sea from shuffle boarding to vigorously
    Dec 5, 2016 12:03 PM - theLumberJack: loll
    Dec 5, 2016 12:03 PM - theLumberJack: there was no shuffleboard during my travels
    Dec 5, 2016 12:03 PM - theLumberJack: i was on a 42' double head sail sloop
    Dec 5, 2016 12:06 PM - Reechard: are you gonna talk about how the minimum wage needs to be abolished in favor of a minimum standard of living provided to everyone?
    Dec 5, 2016 12:06 PM - Reechard: because we're being automated into a post-labor age?
    Dec 5, 2016 12:07 PM - Statboy: you're rolling 2 issues into one with that
    Dec 5, 2016 12:08 PM - Reechard: they're directly and intimately related
    Dec 5, 2016 12:08 PM - VaultBot: i'll have to make it to that half bullman that gave us tea.
    Dec 5, 2016 12:08 PM - Statboy: as always, just raising the minimum wage increases the cost of living making the increase in minimum wage moot
    Dec 5, 2016 12:08 PM - Reechard: because jobs are going away, and quickly
    Dec 5, 2016 12:08 PM - Statboy: not everywhere
    Dec 5, 2016 12:08 PM - Reechard: absolutely everywhere
    Dec 5, 2016 12:09 PM - Statboy: American jobs have been going to China, Mexico, and India
    Dec 5, 2016 12:09 PM - Reechard: not nearly as many of them as are being replaced by robots and computers.
    Dec 5, 2016 12:09 PM - Statboy: countries with the lowest standard of living and thus, lowest cost of living are growing jobs
    Dec 5, 2016 12:09 PM - Reechard: it's a misconstrued statistic, as you're so fond of pointing out
    Dec 5, 2016 12:09 PM - theLumberJack: i like boats
    Dec 5, 2016 12:09 PM - Reechard: of every 5 or 6 jobs that go away, only 1 of them are being sent overseas
    Dec 5, 2016 12:10 PM - Statboy: though i do agree that automation is creating a net loss in jobs
    Dec 5, 2016 12:10 PM - Reechard: with the technology we have, it's only logical that it happen though
    Dec 5, 2016 12:10 PM - Reechard: doing things in an inefficient way to make it so 6 jobs are retained where 1 would be sufficient with the correct machine in place is wasteful
    Dec 5, 2016 12:10 PM - VaultBot: we don't have wifi at work a lot of characters to keep an eye on the other team. i stairstabbed him then stabbed him when he was going to meet up with him and show him my awesome tea-cup, taking in his new found hyper-intelligence.
    Dec 5, 2016 12:11 PM - Reechard: making jobs for the sake of having people employed is bad business all around, and doesn't do anything but extend the issue a few more years.
    Dec 5, 2016 12:11 PM - theLumberJack: im for automating things
    Dec 5, 2016 12:11 PM - theLumberJack: i want to go into control systems so
    Dec 5, 2016 12:11 PM - theLumberJack: my opinion is self serving
    Dec 5, 2016 12:11 PM - Statboy: think through the solution though. How can we pay for a minimum standard of living? If you say take it from the rich I'll point out we'll end up taxing all the money from the rich then who pays?
    Dec 5, 2016 12:12 PM - theLumberJack: business taxes
    Dec 5, 2016 12:13 PM - Statboy: will result in a direct increase of cost to consumer raising the cost of living and the money needed to provide minimum standard of living
    Dec 5, 2016 12:14 PM - theLumberJack: we'll see
    Dec 5, 2016 12:14 PM - theLumberJack: Finland will be trying it soon
    Dec 5, 2016 12:14 PM - English: in other more exciting news. my email inbox has reached a new level of awesomeness

    Dec 5, 2016 12:14 PM - theLumberJack: lol nice
    Dec 5, 2016 12:14 PM - Statboy: Socialism was a good idea where the economics of it worked, it failed in its misunderstanding of Socioeconomics
    Dec 5, 2016 12:20 PM - Statboy: Honestly Reechard, the only solution I see, which also helps with the problem of minimum wage not currently covering cost of living, is continually reduce the cost of living while increasing the value of currency. Though it is impossible to increase the value of currency while we have a national debt we are paying on
    Dec 5, 2016 12:21 PM - theLumberJack: as ever i support the rhinoceros party's idea of changing the national currency to bubble gum
    Dec 5, 2016 12:22 PM - theLumberJack: so it can be deflated or inflated when necessary
    Dec 5, 2016 12:23 PM - Statboy: rofl
    Dec 5, 2016 12:24 PM - theLumberJack: i identify as a neo-rhino
    Dec 5, 2016 12:42 PM - Reechard: the issue then turns to a post-currency society as well.
    Dec 5, 2016 12:42 PM - Reechard: it's a logical step when dealing with a post-labor society
    Dec 5, 2016 12:43 PM - Reechard: we manufacture and produce in ridiculous excess to the needs of our population
    Dec 5, 2016 12:43 PM - Statboy: America does, thats not true globally though
    Dec 5, 2016 12:43 PM - Reechard: The excess of the US farm industry could end world hunger
    Dec 5, 2016 12:43 PM - Reechard: but we take that excess and feed it to cows
    Dec 5, 2016 12:44 PM - Reechard: and then slaughter them to make $.59 hamburgers at white castle

    VaultBot I'm Vintage's pet bot, I can't reply to PMs/posts.

    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:44 PM - Statboy: the problem with world hunger was never how much food was produced, but that farmers give food to the people that pay for it, so that they themselves don't go broke
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:45 PM - Reechard: and if the farmers were given the resources they need to maintain their land and have their living, and simply produced as much as possible so that it could be distributed as necessary
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:45 PM - Reechard: rather than them having to sell to the highest bidder
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:45 PM - Statboy: once again who pays for this?
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:45 PM - Reechard: there is no "pay for this" in a post-currency society
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:45 PM - Statboy: currency is a means of encouraging work, without currency it becomes, who'll actually do the work?
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:46 PM - Statboy: which is right back to where Socialism fails
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:46 PM - Reechard: Socialism fails due to those factors
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:46 PM - Reechard: in a society that is strictly labor-driven
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:47 PM - Reechard: when you require 40 people to work 100 acres of farmland, and you implement socialism, the 20 that don't enjoy the work stop doing it
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:47 PM - Reechard: and the output suffers
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:47 PM - Reechard: in a post-labor system, it only takes 2 people to work 100 acres, and it takes probably 2-4 more to maintain the equipment necessary to work that 100 acre field
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:48 PM - Reechard: and there are enough people that are like my dad, that hate being idle, to maintain that system
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:48 PM - Reechard: boredom drives a post-labor system
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:48 PM - Statboy: hahahahaha
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:49 PM - Statboy: people won't work harder, because they are bored
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:49 PM - theLumberJack: sure they will
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:49 PM - Statboy: without incentive to provide for more than themselves and their own family, farmers won't produce more than they need
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:49 PM - Reechard: no, but there are *lots* of people who would get up and go to work for 8-10 hours a day (or ya know, do 4-6 hours)
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:49 PM - Reechard: because they're bored
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - Statboy: not enough to do the hard work
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - Reechard: what hard work?
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - theLumberJack: but machines do the hard work
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - Reechard: all of that shit is being automated
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - Reechard: rapidly
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - Statboy: so robots do all the farming?
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - Reechard: robots already do all the fucking farming, Stat
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - VaultBot: blame the japs!!!!
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:50 PM - Statboy: false
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - Reechard: no dude
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - Reechard: absofuckinglutely true
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - theLumberJack: they do a lot
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - Statboy: being a farmer is still hard fucking manual labor
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - Reechard: my allegory above where we used to need 40 people for 100 acres
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - Reechard: is absolutely true
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - Reechard: now 2 people can do it
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - theLumberJack: blueberries are nealry completely automated here
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - Reechard: it's not hard manual labor by the standards of 100 years ago
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:51 PM - VaultBot: this guy played spy on the internetz all day
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:52 PM - Statboy: but you still haven't incentived the work. We've seen in practice, not in theory, that failure to incentivize work leads to not working
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:52 PM - Reechard: of course there would be incentives for employment
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:52 PM - Statboy: That's why Socialism worked in theory and failed in practice
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:52 PM - Statboy: beyond boredom? because in practice that doesn't produce work
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:52 PM - Reechard: incentives that are above and beyond the basic living that is guaranteed to everyone
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM - Reechard: the part that would be great about it
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM - Statboy: now you're talking like a republican
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM - VaultBot: honestly reechard, the only solution i see, which also helps with the correct machine in place is wasteful
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM - Reechard: is you'd have a dozen people willing to go share the load of that 100 acres
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM - Reechard: because the farmer doesn't have to worry about maximizing his profit per acre
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM - Statboy: Republicans want social programs to meet the standard of living, and anybody who works be able to exceed it
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM - Reechard: he can focus on maximizing output
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:54 PM - Reechard: no
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:54 PM - Reechard: republicans want to create jobs
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:54 PM - Reechard: even if they go backwards and create additional steps in manufacturing processes
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Statboy: yes, because we currently don't have enough jobs for those who want to work
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Reechard: we don't have enough jobs for people who want to work
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - theLumberJack: jobs don't necessarrily create value in an economy
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Reechard: because the baseline salary for laborers is shit
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Statboy: no, we want the manufacturing that is currently done to be done in America not overseas
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Reechard: and people are working 80-100hrs a week
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Reechard: to make ends meet
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Reechard: we already went over this
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:55 PM - Reechard: the manufacturing isn't necessarily leaving
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:56 PM - Statboy: alright hold on a second, because you keep making the same mistake here
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:56 PM - Reechard: and if it does, it's still only a small fraction of the jobs are leaving, and the rest are simply being automated away
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:56 PM - Reechard: the *MONEY* is still staying in the US
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:56 PM - Reechard: it's just going to 2 or 3 people instead of 1000
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:57 PM - Statboy: the problem is Minimum Wage currently does not equal cost of living. There are 2 parts to that equation Minimum wage AND cost of living. If you only increase minimum wage, cost of living will always rise making the wage increase moot
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:57 PM - Reechard: because we used to spend $.25 for the nylon for a pair of underwear to be imported into the US, but the process for making underwear has been automated, so now we spend $.25 for the finished product to be imported
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:57 PM - VaultBot: ./report vaultbot for spam
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:57 PM - Reechard: we still sell the underwear for $2
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:57 PM - Statboy: the only way to affect that is to decrease cost of living
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:57 PM - Statboy: not increase minimum wage
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:58 PM - Reechard: but instead of the CEO and stockholders spending $.25 for the nylon and then $1 for someone to make the underwear, and then profiting $.75/ea
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:58 PM - Statboy: Socialist's only ever see minimum wage and ignore cost of living
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:58 PM - Reechard: now the CEO and stockholders spend $.25 for the underwear and have $1.75 profit
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:58 PM - Reechard: which is the entire reason we have issue with "the one percent" and inequality of wealth.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 12:59 PM - Reechard: because the same amount of money stays in the US, it just all goes to one dude instead of to 1000 dudes.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:00 PM - Statboy: So much is incorrect about that, that is laughable, but you won't read a long response that address's it, or even acknowledge what I'm saying about cost of living. So stay ignorant my friend I'm out
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:00 PM - Reechard: I completely understand that cost of living increases when minimum wage increases
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:01 PM - Reechard: I ignored it because I said the minimum wage should be *abolished*
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:01 PM - Reechard: if you have a minimum standard of living
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:01 PM - Reechard: then fast food workers should only get $1-2/hr for being there.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:02 PM - Reechard: if you're going to insist on currency hanging around
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:03 PM - Reechard: I'm not the one being ignorant here, dude. You're latching on to antiquated systems of trade that would need to be entirely abolished for this to work
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:04 PM - theLumberJack: I've had a similar debate in my engineering ethics course. One side advocated for a world were currency would be obsolete, and the other side got hung up on how to pay for it.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:04 PM - Reechard: right?
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:06 PM - Reechard: there needs to be a certain standard of ethics (*other than money*) that compels people to get up and do their job for a few hours a day. I'm not talking 40hr work weeks
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:06 PM - Reechard: *that* would bring the demand up high enough to give a lot more people a "job"
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:07 PM - Reechard: because the shit I'm doing 40-50hrs a week, we could split among 3 people, and we'd all have more time for leisure or a second job, or art...
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:07 PM - theLumberJack: I remember the end of the dialog going along the lines "How will people make a living?" "By living."
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:10 PM - Reechard: I'd still be perfectly willing to get up and do what I do for 4 or 5 hours a day. I thoroughly enjoy my job.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:10 PM - Reechard: but I really don't like it eating 8-9hrs a day, 5 days a week, during the part of my life when I could be enjoying my kids
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:10 PM - VaultBot: that says more about you than us
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:10 PM - Reechard: or just enjoying my youth
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:11 PM - Reechard: I'm honestly hoping in the next couple of years that I'll be comfortable enough to ask my boss if he'd be willing to cut my hours in half if he cuts my salary in half.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:12 PM - Reechard: I think the 40 hour work week is asinine.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:12 PM - theLumberJack: It is
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:14 PM - Reechard: "better work your ass off for the next 30 years so you can retire just in time to have some horrible health issue or another"
    Dec 5, 2016 at 1:56 PM - theLumberJack: so have you guys had this disccussion in serious thing or

    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:11 PM - theLumberJack: more i just want to read these arguments/views when im not in the middle of working on a 30+ page report
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:13 PM - English: i think the paradigm shift as you talk about it reechard will come... but not in our lifetimes
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:13 PM - English: we went from a barter system to a currency system
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:14 PM - English: to say that currency is the end all be all when people thought the barter system would be the only way to do work
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:14 PM - theLumberJack: both are entirely human constructs
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:14 PM - English: and the farmers producing assanine amounts of produce/food
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:14 PM - Statboy: Alright I'm over myself, takes to much energy to be angry
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:15 PM - English: that is entirely a result of government intervention in the farming industry
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:15 PM - Statboy: I apologize to Reechard, I spoke harsher than I meant to
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:15 PM - English: which is why we have shit like $0.75 sodas
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM - English: because gubment subsidizes sugar
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM - English: well
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM - English: corn
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM - theLumberJack: we have 300% cheese tarriff to protect local cheese industry
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM - Statboy: I thought they only subsidized E-85 (which is made from corn)
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM - theLumberJack: still make terrible goddamn cheese
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:17 PM - English: im pretty sure they subsidize all corn farms
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:17 PM - English: through tax breaks and other incentives
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:17 PM - English: I know the milk industry is virtually impossible to go bankrupt in
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:17 PM - English: because the government made it so they will buy the excess milk and dairy that the farmer couldnt sell
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:18 PM - English: hence why all schools have free milk and other dairy products
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:18 PM - Statboy: I know when the E-85 stuff came out a lot of farms out here switched to corn, because it paided the highest profit
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:18 PM - English: so all the government involvement inflated these industries instead of having farmers produce what is needed not stupid excess so we can have $0.75 burgers at whitecastle
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:19 PM - Statboy: They had to do something about milk though, the rules about producing it are so intense that without subsidy most milk farms would go under
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:19 PM - VaultBot: a moment of silence for our comrade reechard, if you bought everything new
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:19 PM - English: they would go under if they kept producing the amount they do and having it go to waste
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:20 PM - English: but if they scaled back their production to the actual demand of the product, not the government artificially inflated deman
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:20 PM - English: then they wouldn't go under because their operating costs would go way down
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:20 PM - VaultBot: so i can reuse them on the new angry hobos team logo.
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:20 PM - Statboy: Dairy farms out here have to throw out about 10% of milk as soon as its out of the udders because the temperature of it was 1/2 a degree off
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:20 PM - English: they wouldnt need 5 bajillion milk cows
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:20 PM - theLumberJack: meanwhile the czech republic drinks upasteurized milk
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:21 PM - theLumberJack: *unpasteurized
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:21 PM - English: well the fact that we drink another animal's breast milk is absurd to begin with
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:21 PM - English: Name an animal that drinks the breast milk of another species
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:21 PM - Statboy: i've heard about that, its actually a genetic mutation that we do drink into adulthood
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:22 PM - Statboy: we are the only mammal that drinks milk past infancy
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:22 PM - theLumberJack: but its delicious
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:22 PM - English: and there is no need to drink milk if people consumed a more balanced diet
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:22 PM - theLumberJack: and cheese
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:22 PM - Statboy: but bacon!!!
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:22 PM - theLumberJack: mmmmm cheese
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:24 PM - Statboy: is there a bacon diet?
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:24 PM - VaultBot: 9 month old charged with attempted murder in pakistan by corrupt police
    Dec 5, 2016 at 2:24 PM - English: if we were meant to drink milk our entire lives, women would produce milk constantly, not just during the early stages of their baby's life

    Dec 6, 2016 6:50 AM - TimeCrush: I've got to many plants. My little succulent greenhouse is at max capacity, and everything is growing like wildfire.
    Dec 6, 2016 6:50 AM - TimeCrush: I wish I could just mail a handful of clippings and pods to people. "Here, grow this now. It will never die."
    Dec 6, 2016 6:51 AM - theLumberJack: how big is your greenhouse?
    Dec 6, 2016 6:51 AM - TimeCrush: Like 6ft long, 6ft tall, 2ft deep.
    Dec 6, 2016 6:51 AM - TimeCrush: Indoor
    Dec 6, 2016 6:52 AM - TimeCrush: it was actually two individual ones we bound together
    Dec 6, 2016 6:52 AM - theLumberJack: neat!
    Dec 6, 2016 6:53 AM - theLumberJack: you should make a post about it!
    Dec 6, 2016 6:53 AM - theLumberJack: give us a tour
    Dec 6, 2016 6:53 AM - TimeCrush: Lol, everything would just be.
    Dec 6, 2016 6:53 AM - TimeCrush: "This is a plant I got at some farmers flower stall. I'm not sure what it is, but doesn't it look neat?" repeat repeat repeat
    Dec 6, 2016 6:54 AM - theLumberJack: see now it just sounds like you turned it into a game
    Dec 6, 2016 6:54 AM - theLumberJack: a plant identifying game
    Dec 6, 2016 6:54 AM - TimeCrush: I've got one picture on my comp I'll link in box
    Dec 6, 2016 6:54 AM - TimeCrush: Started out as just a couple pods in some dirt in a cup
    Dec 6, 2016 6:54 AM - TimeCrush: And now it has turned into yee almighty plant beast
    Dec 6, 2016 6:57 AM - TimeCrush: [​IMG]
    Dec 6, 2016 6:57 AM - TimeCrush: I have no pot and I must scream
    Dec 6, 2016 6:57 AM - TimeCrush: Like, it looks so snaggle tooth, because it falls over all the time and gets beat around
    Dec 6, 2016 6:57 AM - TimeCrush: But it cannot die, and it started from a single little pod thing
    Dec 6, 2016 6:58 AM - TimeCrush: One of those pods fell into another pot? Plant warfare begins
    Dec 6, 2016 6:59 AM - TimeCrush: Its what I pull off to put in the beds outside around summer
    Dec 6, 2016 7:00 AM - TimeCrush: Off to work, back in box in a few.
    Dec 6, 2016 7:01 AM - theLumberJack: its so weird looking
    Dec 6, 2016 8:53 AM - TimeCrush: You into plants then LJ?
    Dec 6, 2016 8:54 AM - theLumberJack: no but i could get into them

    Dec 6, 2016 9:01 AM - VaultBot: yeah thats rough
    Dec 6, 2016 9:01 AM - TimeCrush: That one looks really small actually
    Dec 6, 2016 9:01 AM - TimeCrush: But that shape
    Dec 6, 2016 9:02 AM - theLumberJack: looks good
    Dec 6, 2016 9:08 AM - TimeCrush: Do you think a little package of clippings and pods would survive a trip through the mail?
    Dec 6, 2016 9:09 AM - theLumberJack: it wouldn't survive a trip through customs :p
    Dec 6, 2016 9:09 AM - theLumberJack: i think it would be illegal for you to mail it across the border
    Dec 6, 2016 9:10 AM - TimeCrush: Damn. Didn't even think about the border.
    Dec 6, 2016 9:19 AM - Reechard: TC pls come down here and I will give you 1/4acre to grow food
    Dec 6, 2016 9:20 AM - Reechard: or more if you wish
    Dec 6, 2016 9:20 AM - TimeCrush: Gahhhh that sounds amazing
    Dec 6, 2016 9:20 AM - TimeCrush: I want that. Lets do that lol
    Dec 6, 2016 9:22 AM - Reechard: I got this big ole' yard now
    Dec 6, 2016 9:23 AM - Reechard: gonna get a chicken run going, and a couple of fertilizer piles, and my second purchase after a riding mower is going to be a good tiller
    Dec 6, 2016 9:24 AM - TimeCrush: I'm pretty sure I'd be happy with that kind of life.
    Dec 6, 2016 9:24 AM - TimeCrush: Or a coastal hut where I've gotta catch my meals
    Dec 6, 2016 9:25 AM - TimeCrush: Mmm fresh seafood on the daily
    Dec 6, 2016 11:17 AM - VaultBot: of the games should
    Dec 6, 2016 11:17 AM - Reechard: I'm thinking about some heirloom tomatoes and some fresh cucumber and some friggin oninos
    Dec 6, 2016 11:17 AM - Reechard: in a bowl
    Dec 6, 2016 11:17 AM - Reechard: with like a tablespoon of mayo and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
    Dec 6, 2016 11:17 AM - Reechard: and a shitload of fresh cracked pepper
    Dec 6, 2016 11:17 AM - VaultBot: still, she needs an ass whooping so she won't try again in the future
    Dec 6, 2016 11:17 AM - Reechard: or like
    Dec 6, 2016 11:18 AM - Reechard: having a big assed crock of fresh fermented pickles
    Dec 6, 2016 11:18 AM - Reechard: We have some shitty dying pine trees in the front yard that will be turned into campfire piles next spring
    Dec 6, 2016 11:19 AM - Reechard: I want to grind the stumps and plant some good heirloom apple trees, maybe a couple of cherry trees too.
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - English: your mom is a cherry tree
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - Reechard: I don't want no gotdamn mealy gross red delicious apples tho
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - English: fuck red delicious
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - VaultBot: hell yah, i've watched plenty of em, i'm sure i like where that is a sane sentence from vaultbot
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - English: Granny Smith or GTFO
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - Reechard: get me some good old fashioned small sweet apples.
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - Reechard: granny smith is awesome but is kinda limited to just "eating"
    Dec 6, 2016 11:21 AM - English: ugh
    Dec 6, 2016 11:22 AM - English: just thinking about red delicious makes me wanna vomit
    Dec 6, 2016 11:22 AM - English: there is nothing delicious about it
    Dec 6, 2016 11:22 AM - Reechard: I'm thinking like

    Dec 6, 2016 11:23 AM - English: mmm
    Dec 6, 2016 11:23 AM - English: looks good
    Dec 6, 2016 11:23 AM - Reechard: we grew up in NE Ohio, and there are some trees outside of my hometown that were recorded as planted by johnny appleseed
    Dec 6, 2016 11:23 AM - Reechard: and there's a johnny appleseed festival every year downtown
    Dec 6, 2016 11:24 AM - Reechard: and for my entire life there was a dude that would dress up like him with a pot on his head and hand out these small delicious apples to kids at the festival
    Dec 6, 2016 11:24 AM - Reechard: and I'm pretty sure they came from those trees.
    Dec 6, 2016 11:24 AM - Reechard: and that's exactly what I want. My mom called them "lunchbox apples" because they weren't too big to eat with your lunch
    Dec 6, 2016 11:26 AM - VaultBot: more i just want to read and write
    Dec 6, 2016 11:26 AM - Reechard: I friggin love good apples.
    Dec 6, 2016 11:54 AM - VaultBot: you just jelly because lonesome has more features available :p
    Dec 6, 2016 11:54 AM - TimeCrush: There used to be an orchard by where I grew up. We could walk 5 or so acres through the woods and pop out on the other side near a small field + the orchard just beyond.
    Dec 6, 2016 11:54 AM - TimeCrush: Fill up some backpacks and journey on back.
    Dec 6, 2016 11:55 AM - TimeCrush: Older folks that owned it died, daughter inherited it, didn't maintain it for years then had every tree uprooted. Sold off the land for farming.
    Dec 6, 2016 11:55 AM - VaultBot: don't get enough votes
    Dec 6, 2016 11:55 AM - TimeCrush: Bitch.
    Dec 6, 2016 12:39 PM - Reechard: that sounds like some of the petty people in my hometown
    Dec 6, 2016 12:39 PM - Reechard: "this was my parents' legacy. I'm not going to maintain it myself, but I'm not going to sell it as it sits either, I'd rather the legacy be torn down than anyone else have it"
    Dec 6, 2016 12:54 PM - TimeCrush: No kidding. Like why wouldn't you want to keep that going, and forge your family name into something positive.
    Dec 6, 2016 5:46 PM - VintagePC: because work and instant gratification generation?
    Dec 6, 2016 6:55 PM - Reechard: the idea of the golf course across the street kinda scares me
    Dec 6, 2016 6:55 PM - Reechard: because you know the owner is keeping it open because he loves *golf*
    Dec 6, 2016 6:56 PM - Reechard: when he dies, if his kids don't love *golf*...
    Dec 6, 2016 6:56 PM - Reechard: they're sitting on a few million dollars worth of prime real estate.
    Dec 6, 2016 6:56 PM - Reechard: and god knows it'll end up being a shitty development.

    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:31 AM - English: i do believe so yes
    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:33 AM - Statboy: seems like a perfect casting, the guy is amazing
    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:34 AM - TimeCrush: It was
    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:35 AM - TimeCrush: He nailed that performance
    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:35 AM - TimeCrush: Gets the hubris of Strange down well
    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:47 AM - VaultBot: how would you know engrish?
    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:47 AM - Statboy: any other superhero's show up in it?
    Dec 7, 2016 at 10:49 AM - TimeCrush: Post credits
    Dec 7, 2016 at 10:49 AM - TimeCrush: And of course you got the Stan Lee cameo
    Dec 7, 2016 at 11:01 AM - Statboy: wouldn't be a marvel movie without it
    Dec 7, 2016 at 11:57 AM - Statboy: i should probably do my grocery shopping before the snow comes in....
    Dec 7, 2016 at 11:57 AM - VaultBot: and they run better and faster than any other communities servers i've seen. so if people are complaining about ping tell them it's on ads on just about every....adult entertainment site
    Dec 7, 2016 at 11:57 AM - Statboy: it's only supposed to be 1/2 inch, but its the first snow of the season and the idiots are going to be driving in force like they always do
    Dec 7, 2016 at 12:11 PM - English: gotta stock up on all the things that will spoil first
    Dec 7, 2016 at 12:11 PM - English: you know like bread milk and eggs
    Dec 7, 2016 at 12:25 PM - theLumberJack: rofl thats a good one vint
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:11 PM - TimeCrush: God damn, how do I get a kid to open up to me and just ask life questions?
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:13 PM - VaultBot: up to silver or their team has disbanded
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:13 PM - TimeCrush: Like, we get along great, and roll solo a lot to grab food and whatnot. When we talk I try to talk a little above him because I think it will speed up his social interaction skills, but christ I have no idea lol. What if I'm doing damage to this kid and I have no idae.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:14 PM - TimeCrush: Known him since he was 7, think he is 13 now. His home life is loving but unstructured and unguided as fuck.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:14 PM - TimeCrush: I see a bit of me in him when I was little so I know hes gotta have these questions about why is shit the way it is.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:43 PM - TimeCrush: No one has enlightening wisdom on that one? Come on box, I low key use you as my moral compass =P
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:44 PM - TimeCrush: Its my slightly smarter magic 8 ball
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:44 PM - English: heh
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:45 PM - English: in all honesty, you have to just relate to him
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:45 PM - English: as a 13 year old
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:45 PM - English: find out his likes and interests on a more basic level (not abstract future) and connect with him really well
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:45 PM - English: and then you show him whats it like to live a certain way and carry yourself in a certain way
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:46 PM - English: you encourage his successes
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:46 PM - English: but you also coach his failures
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:46 PM - English: remember the kid is 13
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:46 PM - English: he might not have a lot of the faculties to ask abstract life questions
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:47 PM - English: and as mature as any 13 year old could be
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:47 PM - English: he is still just a child
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:48 PM - TimeCrush: I worry that his interests aren't as fleshed out as they should be, as his mother is very reclusive. While I try to take him out and experience new things to maybe trigger that "Oh wait, this is great, this interests me"
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:48 PM - English: sorry not "just a child"
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:48 PM - English: have you ever just asked him what his interests are? what he likes to do?
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:48 PM - TimeCrush: He has been sheltered a lot, and is dismissive of new things or even scared?
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:49 PM - TimeCrush: Yes. It is usually 'I don't know.' or a filler answer like 'video games'
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:49 PM - VaultBot: 4 may claptrap as
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:49 PM - English: be patient
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:50 PM - English: it will come eventually
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:50 PM - English: just continue to be a strong example of what a good and decent person is
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:50 PM - TimeCrush: It is a bit rough as well because I can't exactly swoop in like I am his parent and be all executive decision guy.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:50 PM - English: im not necessarily saying that is what you need to do
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:51 PM - English: for example, instead of scolding him for not doing his homework
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:51 PM - VaultBot: oh now it says *ignored* whenever vaultbot says something
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:51 PM - TimeCrush: I feel like there is going to come a time where he calls on his mom for something and she won't be able to do it, then he is going to roledex through a bunch of names in his head, I hope I stick out.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:51 PM - English: you tell him about all the chores and tasks that you have to do on a regular basis and why it is important to make sure you are on top of those things
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:52 PM - English: and I think the best way that you can be that person that he comes to when he needs help is to again just be a good example
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:52 PM - English: talk with him often
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:52 PM - English: even if it is only a few minutes at a time
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:53 PM - English: and as he gets older he will come to appreciate your interest in his success
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:54 PM - English: i have a similar situation with my wife's step brother
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:54 PM - English: he is 17 now but i have known him since he was about 12
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:55 PM - English: lacks a lot of real structure in his life
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:55 PM - English: also has an emotionally abusive father
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:56 PM - English: and it just took treating him like a person and respecting that he has his own opinions and beliefs and also holding her accountable to a set standard
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:56 PM - English: him*
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:56 PM - English: and letting him know when he is not meeting that standard
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:56 PM - English: but also celebrating his successes
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:57 PM - English: before this year he was a solid D student
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:57 PM - VaultBot: i could make pipes for a viewernbecause i only got a notification for quoting
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:57 PM - English: so far he is getting all Bs and some As
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:57 PM - theLumberJack: must resist solid D joke
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:57 PM - English: gj TLJ
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:57 PM - English: :p
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:58 PM - English: It just took me finally connecting with him on a certain level and then showing him what something better than his current life is like
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:58 PM - English: and show him how to have a better life for himself
    Dec 7, 2016 at 1:58 PM - English: and then you change a young person's life for the better
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:00 PM - English: /endstorytime
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:00 PM - English: hope that helps TC
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:01 PM - English: and im sorry if it doesnt
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:01 PM - VaultBot: not tonight :(
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:01 PM - theLumberJack: so now that he's getting all the A's, who'd he give his solid D to
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:27 PM - theLumberJack: well that get in well
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:27 PM - theLumberJack: time to pull out of the box
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:28 PM - English: :p
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:28 PM - English: gj TLJ
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:28 PM - English: gj
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:28 PM - English: proud of u
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:40 PM - TimeCrush: It does English, thanks. I'm not involved in his life as much as a role model should be.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:41 PM - TimeCrush: In more of a general speaking sense, I get caught up when talking to kids thinking I'm making permanent memories when doing the most banal shit, because I remember some of the most banal shit
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:44 PM - VaultBot: and i'm pretty sure they subsidize all corn farms
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:44 PM - Reechard: Everybody remembers banal shit, and lots of it, but it's different banal shit for each person.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:45 PM - Reechard: you have to try and make everything as good as you can, because you never know when someone is going to be paying attention to it.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:48 PM - Statboy: If its any help, not every kid is helped by people being nice to them. What did the most for me was ROTC and Baseball in HS. Coach and Sgt Major were the first people in my life that actually held me accountable for myself.
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:48 PM - Statboy: It was what I needed at 14, what everybody needs is different
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:56 PM - TimeCrush: [​IMG]
    Dec 7, 2016 at 2:56 PM - TimeCrush: You guys are fucking great
    Dec 7, 2016 at 3:15 PM - English: <3
    Dec 7, 2016 at 8:37 PM - theLumberJack: got my knock off arduino in the mail
    Dec 7, 2016 at 8:37 PM - theLumberJack: oh boy
    Dec 7, 2016 at 9:40 PM - Statboy: Did Canadians forget how to drive in the snow?

    Dec 8, 2016 at 1:17 AM - SoL DarkLord: Heads up I may not be available tonight, I might get home from work and just be exhausted t hell.
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:08 AM - TimeCrush: If we have to raincheck tonight I'm not hurt. Looks like work is laying the smack down on a handful of us.
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:12 AM - VintagePC: that doesn't look like snow, it looks like wet snow with a layer of water underneath
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:13 AM - VintagePC: but just like the US, when the first snow falls and nobody's got their winter tires on, it's a clusterfuck
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:20 AM - theLumberJack: Yeah I will probably be late if we do it today. IEEE paper competition is tonight and I need to go watch so I can win it in 5 months
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:39 AM - theLumberJack: but miraculously my exams are done by next thursday
    Dec 8, 2016 at 8:45 AM - English: Who puts winter tires on?
    Dec 8, 2016 at 8:45 AM - theLumberJack: Mechanics?
    Dec 8, 2016 at 8:46 AM - TimeCrush: Mom and pop oil change shops could probs hook you pu
    Dec 8, 2016 at 8:46 AM - TimeCrush: Couple small places like that where I'm from that will help out around this time.
    Dec 8, 2016 at 10:24 AM - Statboy: I guess we're cancelling tonight then, We are finishing book 3 before 2017. We started in January this year and we are at least getting half way done before the year is out
    Dec 8, 2016 at 1:19 PM - VaultBot: break out the porn 'staches
    Dec 8, 2016 at 1:19 PM - English: i mean... I have lived in NY for 4 years and never once put on winter tires...
    Dec 8, 2016 at 1:19 PM - English: and was in Vermont for 4 years before that and never used winter tires
    Dec 8, 2016 at 1:26 PM - TimeCrush: I drive one of the top ten deadliest cars in America living in Michigan, and never have used snow tires
    Dec 8, 2016 at 1:27 PM - TimeCrush: When I crash it will be a plastic pinata, and my consoling thought is, "If I'm going fast enough, I probably won't feel it."
    Dec 8, 2016 at 1:49 PM - VintagePC: You do realise that all season tires are absolute shit when there's snow or ice on the ground, right?
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:04 PM - Statboy: Snow tires are like eating out, something rich people do, and wonder why the normals don't
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:08 PM - VintagePC: Now you're just trolling
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:09 PM - VintagePC: That line of reasoning is exactly why videos like the one posted exist
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:17 PM - VaultBot: hence my answer in the negative lol
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:17 PM - Statboy: Only half trolling, buying snow tires is beyond the budget of many people
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:19 PM - Statboy: out where I live, if you want to sell a junker for $500 you'll have people beating down your door for it, so long as it runs. Putting $250 of tires for 4 months out of the year on a $500 car doesn't make sense to people without much money
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:20 PM - Statboy: Hell I'm practically high society in my town because I own a TV and a car worth 4 digits
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:22 PM - TimeCrush: Look at mr swanky $1k+ vehicle
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:22 PM - TimeCrush: Nah, thats sad though
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:22 PM - TimeCrush: Shitty? Maybe the word I was looking for was shitty.
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:22 PM - Statboy: we have a school bus that stops at a pay by the week hotel which is filled with nothing but families living there, because they can't find an apartment in there budget
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:23 PM - Statboy: families of 4&5 living in a motel room
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:23 PM - TimeCrush: Good god no
    Dec 8, 2016 at 2:24 PM - Statboy: They have a waiting list to move in, because $100 a week. Several of the churches have started helping out by making hot meals for those families
    Dec 8, 2016 at 3:56 PM - SoL DarkLord: I have a nice set of tires with great traction on the Jeep.... not that I get to drive the damn thing. Also I am good for the night. today was actually easy.
    Dec 8, 2016 at 4:06 PM - Statboy: It sounded like both TC and LJ were wanting the night off as well
    Dec 8, 2016 at 4:15 PM - SoL DarkLord: alright.
    Dec 8, 2016 at 5:47 PM - VaultBot: one for lj:
    Dec 8, 2016 at 5:47 PM - theLumberJack: My thing ended up being a mummers farce so I'm home
    Dec 8, 2016 at 5:48 PM - theLumberJack: The top three projects get selected to be entered and one of them didn't work and wasn't designed by the students
    Dec 8, 2016 at 5:49 PM - theLumberJack: Such a load of shit
    Dec 8, 2016 at 5:49 PM - theLumberJack: I had to leave to avoid making an ass of myself
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:06 PM - VaultBot: proud of u
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:06 PM - Ach Hans Run!: I have some hw to do
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:06 PM - Ach Hans Run!: If we're around I can play though
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:18 PM - Statboy: everyone is in box
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:18 PM - Statboy: want to do this?
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:19 PM - VintagePC: I have yet to eat dinner but could do at the top of the hour.
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:22 PM - Statboy: I'm down, i'll be around then, we'll see who else is
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:31 PM - theLumberJack: I'm down just rebooting
    Dec 8, 2016 at 6:37 PM - Ach Hans Run!: I'm doing a stellar job procrastinating on my procarstination, so sure

    Dec 9, 2016 3:05 AM - Hexalan: TC, as a recently child, some things I think I'd want would be that (1), I can relate to you so I know you'll really understand what I have to say, (2) I see you more as a wise peer than an authority, so I won't be afraid of your judgment, and (3) that you actually care about what I say or do, so you won't take helping me as a burden
    Dec 9, 2016 6:42 AM - theLumberJack: not tc but that looks really good advice hex
    Dec 9, 2016 6:42 AM - theLumberJack: also snow finally on the ground
    Dec 9, 2016 7:09 AM - TimeCrush: How old are you Hex? I forget.
    Dec 9, 2016 7:12 AM - theLumberJack: he's in highschool still i think
    Dec 9, 2016 7:16 AM - TimeCrush: Crazy
    Dec 9, 2016 9:06 AM - Statboy: I thought hex started Purdue this year
    Dec 9, 2016 9:16 AM - theLumberJack: my friend went there
    Dec 9, 2016 9:16 AM - VaultBot: if its any help, not every kid is 13
    Dec 9, 2016 9:16 AM - theLumberJack: he studied aerospace engineering
    Dec 9, 2016 9:43 AM - Statboy: awesome article on Space.com about progress made towards "Star in a Jar" reactors
    Dec 9, 2016 9:43 AM - Statboy: http://www.space.com/34960-star-in-a-jar-fusion-reactor-works.html
    Dec 9, 2016 9:45 AM - Statboy: or if you want the technical manual instead of the for dummies version http://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms13493
    Dec 9, 2016 9:46 AM - theLumberJack: ive been following this project for years
    Dec 9, 2016 9:46 AM - theLumberJack: it's very exciting
    Dec 9, 2016 9:49 AM - Statboy: its very scifi becomes reality, Starcraft even had one

    Dec 9, 2016 10:00 AM - TimeCrush: Dang that sounds cool
    Dec 9, 2016 10:14 AM - Statboy: Have you guys seen the propellantless thrusters for spacecraft? We have thrust through microwaves instead of burning fuel. Fuel accounts for a huge portion of weight on our shuttles, and this will someday eliminate that.
    Dec 9, 2016 10:38 AM - TimeCrush: If you guys ever just want to sit down and awe me with shit I don't know about, I'm all ears lol.
    Dec 9, 2016 11:01 AM - English: Stat -- Once they can construct spaceships in space instead of on Earth. Space travel will revolutionize
    Dec 9, 2016 11:15 AM - Statboy: There is a company developing a satellite 3D printer. That is a satellite that is a 3D printer, that can print parts in space
    Dec 9, 2016 11:33 AM - theLumberJack: andone day well start harvesting all that sweet sweet moon helium
    Dec 9, 2016 11:35 AM - TimeCrush: I mean, if the article Stat linked is true that thing shits out helium. We won't need to if we get to that first.
    Dec 9, 2016 11:47 AM - theLumberJack: its true. that model won't out more energy than goes into it though
    Dec 9, 2016 12:39 PM - TimeCrush: I want a game to sink myself into this weekend, but nothing is jumping out at me.
    Dec 9, 2016 12:42 PM - theLumberJack: Ive been enjoying Stories Path of Destinies in the spare moments
    Dec 9, 2016 12:43 PM - English: you should play EVE online TC
    Dec 9, 2016 12:44 PM - English: ill split the recruitment bonus with you ;)
    Dec 9, 2016 12:51 PM - TimeCrush: I've tried EVE a couple times, and can the only time I was really hooked was when I was unemployed.
    Dec 9, 2016 12:51 PM - VaultBot: when he is not a valid proof
    Dec 9, 2016 12:51 PM - TimeCrush: Lol, felt like I actually had the needed time to devote to the game
    Dec 9, 2016 12:51 PM - TimeCrush: and it masked my 'being a piece of shit' with a facade of productivity.
    Dec 9, 2016 12:52 PM - TimeCrush: Always liked the long hauls though, moving from a base 35 jumps away with precious equipment all through nulsec.
    Dec 9, 2016 1:02 PM - English: well if you or anyone wants to get back into the game I am part of a really cool corp that is relatively small and tight knit :)

    Dec 11, 2016 10:30 AM - Statboy: I had a idea in my sleep last night. Build a who dunnit murder mystery, where the clues are locked in several puzzle boxes. Each box has multiple hidden spots, some require codes to open. As you open secret compartments, you get clues about the murder.
    Dec 11, 2016 10:30 AM - Statboy: My life has now peaked, this is the best idea I will ever have

    Dec 12, 2016 4:52 PM - theLumberJack: vector calculus i assume?
    Dec 12, 2016 4:52 PM - Hexalan: though i suppose i might be cursing newton again when i'm taking physics
    Dec 12, 2016 4:52 PM - Hexalan: yeah
    Dec 12, 2016 4:54 PM - Hexalan: the integrals don't bother me that much, it's mostly the actual vector things
    Dec 12, 2016 4:54 PM - theLumberJack: mmmm vectors
    Dec 12, 2016 4:55 PM - Hexalan: should i be cursing descartes instead for inventing coordinates
    Dec 12, 2016 4:56 PM - VaultBot: such a load of shit
    Dec 12, 2016 4:56 PM - theLumberJack: what kind of degree do you want to be doing hex?

    Dec 12, 2016 4:57 PM - Hexalan: aren't you electrical engineering?
    Dec 12, 2016 4:57 PM - theLumberJack: yea
    Dec 12, 2016 4:59 PM - Hexalan: does it make you feel all warm and electrically
    Dec 12, 2016 5:01 PM - theLumberJack: no electricity is all pain and spasmy
    Dec 12, 2016 5:02 PM - Hexalan: you know what i hate
    Dec 12, 2016 5:02 PM - theLumberJack: im writing a take home final for a digital transmission theory course right now
    Dec 12, 2016 5:02 PM - Hexalan: questions that are "do the previous question, but..."
    Dec 12, 2016 5:02 PM - VaultBot: 1+1 does =3
    Dec 12, 2016 5:02 PM - theLumberJack: lol
    Dec 12, 2016 5:02 PM - Hexalan: it's just the epitome of lazy question making
    Dec 12, 2016 5:03 PM - Hexalan: is digital transmission theory pleasant?
    Dec 12, 2016 5:07 PM - theLumberJack: i've enjoyed it
    Dec 12, 2016 5:08 PM - theLumberJack: i was looking up some of the stuff on wikipedia to get more background stuff and the articles kept having references to the guy who runs the lab that my professor works in
    Dec 12, 2016 5:08 PM - theLumberJack: so that's neat
    Dec 12, 2016 5:08 PM - Hexalan: that is pretty neat
    Dec 12, 2016 5:18 PM - theLumberJack: im trying to implement a golay code decoder in matlab
    Dec 12, 2016 5:18 PM - theLumberJack: but i made a mistake and now i must find it
    Dec 12, 2016 5:21 PM - Hexalan: sometimes i appreciate matlab
    Dec 12, 2016 5:23 PM - Hexalan: i like arrays, and matlab does powerful things with arrays
    Dec 12, 2016 5:23 PM - Hexalan: but sometimes it just does stuff i don't really know why
    Dec 12, 2016 5:23 PM - theLumberJack: MatLab stands for Matrix Laboratory
    Dec 12, 2016 5:23 PM - theLumberJack: well it has plenty of help documentation thankfully
    Dec 12, 2016 5:24 PM - Hexalan: yeah that's a benefit of the matlab ide
    Dec 12, 2016 5:25 PM - theLumberJack: simulink is pretty useful too
    Dec 12, 2016 5:25 PM - theLumberJack: i built a flight simulator for my quadcopter in it this semester
    Dec 12, 2016 5:26 PM - theLumberJack: oh i like the debugger to
    Dec 12, 2016 5:26 PM - theLumberJack: its a good debugger
    Dec 12, 2016 5:27 PM - Hexalan: i believe that
    Dec 12, 2016 5:29 PM - theLumberJack: my block error rate is too damn high
    Dec 12, 2016 5:33 PM - Hexalan: what's a good way to write rho?
    Dec 12, 2016 5:34 PM - Hexalan: the time it takes me to write rho is significantly slowing down my calculus
    Dec 12, 2016 5:34 PM - theLumberJack: just draw the symbol for rho?
    Dec 12, 2016 5:36 PM - Hexalan: i was excited because the number 255 came up, 'cause that's a computery number
    Dec 12, 2016 5:36 PM - VaultBot: my block error rate is too flaky
    Dec 12, 2016 5:36 PM - Hexalan: and then i realized i literally just took a power of a 2 and subtracted 1 from it
    Dec 12, 2016 5:40 PM - theLumberJack: lol
    Dec 12, 2016 5:40 PM - theLumberJack: my block error rate is at 1% and i need to get it down to 0.01%
    Dec 12, 2016 5:41 PM - Hexalan: just zoom in and enhance
    Dec 12, 2016 5:49 PM - theLumberJack: lol
    Dec 12, 2016 5:49 PM - VaultBot: yeah that&#039;s a benefit of the hour.

    Dec 13, 2016 9:27 AM - Statboy: Is space engi's fixed now? Not gonna lie, my not potato computer ran at 2 seconds per frame when I tried to start a base on a planet
    Dec 13, 2016 9:28 AM - theLumberJack: they just had a pretty good bug fix patched pushed to their developper branch
    Dec 13, 2016 9:28 AM - theLumberJack: load times are better, i don't have any frame issues on a planet
    Dec 13, 2016 9:29 AM - theLumberJack: but i do crash occassionally for no apparent reason
    Dec 13, 2016 9:29 AM - theLumberJack: still definitely early access feeling, but is playable by comparison for me
    Dec 13, 2016 9:29 AM - theLumberJack: new mp netcode is much better
    Dec 13, 2016 9:30 AM - Statboy: I bought that game very early, and regretted it, because it wasn't polished or playable at all. I downloaded it again once they added planets, it was still pretty bad then. I hope it gets good soon, like full release good
    Dec 13, 2016 9:43 AM - theLumberJack: its good to me now
    Dec 13, 2016 9:43 AM - theLumberJack: i just cant attest to how well it will run on your potatoe
    Dec 13, 2016 9:43 AM - theLumberJack: i just upgraded my cpu so im running an i5 with a gtx 970
    Dec 13, 2016 9:49 AM - VaultBot: just start cursing anyone who worked at bell labs
    Dec 13, 2016 9:49 AM - Statboy: Thats very close to what I'm running, I do run AMD instead of Intel
    Dec 13, 2016 11:02 AM - theLumberJack: what do you have for a gpu?
    Dec 13, 2016 11:02 AM - theLumberJack: if you want to give it a go the latest update is still only on dev so you have to go into the properties, and then under betas click developer
    Dec 13, 2016 11:05 AM - TimeCrush: I've got just about the same play history with that game as Stat. Very early once, post planet update once, never again.
    Dec 13, 2016 11:06 AM - TimeCrush: Just actually coming back around to path of exile again. Guess they had an engine update, looks better and smoother now.
    Dec 13, 2016 11:33 AM - theLumberJack: ive been playing se more this week since the last developer update
    Dec 13, 2016 11:45 AM - Statboy: GTX 960 or 70 I keep forgetting

    Dec 13, 2016 1:00 PM - theLumberJack: it also has a small campaign/tutorial under the scenarios in the dev branch
    Dec 13, 2016 1:44 PM - Statboy: that would probably be nice
    Dec 13, 2016 7:18 PM - VaultBot: but miraculously my exams are done by next thursday

    Dec 14, 2016 8:05 AM - Reechard: I don't think I mentioned it before today
    Dec 14, 2016 8:05 AM - Reechard: but our new house is on MANN RD
    Dec 14, 2016 8:05 AM - Reechard: so I live in constant fear for my gravel mines.
    Dec 14, 2016 8:59 AM - Statboy: are you a RED or BLU?
    Dec 14, 2016 9:08 AM - Reechard: right now I'm RED as hell, because my internet is garbage.
    Dec 14, 2016 9:33 AM - VaultBot: but significant figures inherently suggests that x=y
    Dec 14, 2016 9:33 AM - Hexalan: exams are done and symmetra update is live

    Dec 14, 2016 10:27 AM - Statboy: I'd go with option 2, but that's just me
    Dec 14, 2016 11:33 AM - Statboy: I've had to visit my bank everyday since my debit card # was stolen. I'm beginning to think I should switch to Ally and do online banking only...
    Dec 14, 2016 12:23 PM - TimeCrush: I use a credit union, and am probably not as safe as I should be with my info. Thankfully haven't suffered the consequences yet.
    Dec 14, 2016 1:12 PM - Statboy: They figured out a local merchant got hacked and lost the numbers of the people that went there. But they don't know which one yet
    Dec 14, 2016 1:13 PM - Statboy: its like when target got hacked, except it was done to a small town merchant
    Dec 14, 2016 1:20 PM - TimeCrush: From what I've been told / learned, they without a doubt know where the breach occurred, but don't want to release that information as to not hurt the company.
    Dec 14, 2016 1:20 PM - TimeCrush: I can't remember the exact route of kickbacks, but somebody is paying somebody or has a partnership to not say that information.
    Dec 14, 2016 1:20 PM - VaultBot: and those generally don't coincide well enough to work with a markov generator
    Dec 14, 2016 1:20 PM - TimeCrush: And now reading that back I sound paranoid. Fuck.
    Dec 14, 2016 1:39 PM - Hexalan: this is why i only do business with individuals and pay in precious specie
    Dec 14, 2016 5:44 PM - VaultBot: i can&#039;t remember the exact route of kickbacks, but somebody is paying somebody or has a small campaign/tutorial under the scenarios in the dev branch

    Dec 14, 2016 6:03 PM - SoL DarkLord: so when we get them secret santas pengoo?
    Dec 14, 2016 6:18 PM - VintagePC: Everybody gets... ME! Muahahahahaha
    Dec 14, 2016 6:28 PM - SoL DarkLord: inb4 the pony game gets passed back to me.
    Dec 14, 2016 6:35 PM - Hexalan: OMAGAWD I HATE SOL I DON'T WANT TO SEND HIM A GIFT

    Dec 14, 2016 6:37 PM - VintagePC: SoL??? I put vintage on your message, just like everyon- I mean what?
    Dec 14, 2016 6:40 PM - VintagePC: lol, I can assure you I did not jigger the matching so I would be buying for SoL
    Dec 14, 2016 6:40 PM - VintagePC: at least give me some credit for integrity here
    Dec 14, 2016 6:43 PM - Hexalan: do you manually type in names or do you have some sort of script generator?
    Dec 14, 2016 6:46 PM - VintagePC: Manually
    Dec 14, 2016 6:47 PM - VintagePC: we have few enough participants that it doesn't warrant me writing a script to call the forum API and send PMs on my behalf
    Dec 14, 2016 6:48 PM - VintagePC: I considered it for the purposes of hiding my santa from me but realized that could lead to silly assignments, like having lava buy for reechard and vice versa
    Dec 14, 2016 6:49 PM - VintagePC: that happened the first stab when I misconfigured the randomizer :p
    Dec 14, 2016 6:49 PM - Hexalan: is it weird when you tell people to buy you things?
    Dec 14, 2016 6:51 PM - VintagePC: Nah, I got over it after the first three

    Dec 14, 2016 11:20 PM - SoL DarkLord: And by pass them around, I mean share them all with the one true pony fan of VF4, you know the person that went out of his way to make a pony theme for the forums.
    Dec 14, 2016 11:31 PM - Hexalan: i dunno m8 stat has my little pony fanfiction written about him
    Dec 15, 2016 8:05 AM - Statboy: I believe it was the Hex who wrote said Fanfic
