<miekko> is disney using all its surplus money on maintaining that frozen corpse?
<Slereah> are you talking about Star Wars or the cryogenically frozen head of Walt Disney
<CUM_SIURAN> section 3 of the 25th amendment has been invoked three times in American history, every single one of which involved the president undergoing a colonoscopy
<CUM_SIURAN> obama had a new type of colonoscopy when he was in office that didn't involve sedating him, so he didn't need to invoke it
<Slereah> I don't think a colonoscopy counts as a disability
<Slereah> You could probably preside with a tube up your ass
<CUM_SIURAN> it was more about the sedation
<CUM_SIURAN> than the colonoscopy per se
<Slereah> do they invoke it when he takes a nap too
<pthag> the president is never forced to take a nap
<pthag> except when he must be anally probed
<Slereah> I guess that's why presidents age like hell
<Slereah> They are constitutionally forbidden to sleep
<@Cev> No I was too rapt by the drama of the film
<@Cev> Like of that one guy dressing up as a woman to escape the city and filling his frock with gold coins.
<@pharazon> it's funny because he's a guy
<@pharazon> dressed as a lady
<@Cev> Guys don't wear dresses.
<@Cev> That's just silly.
<@pharazon> did he put coconuts under his shirt for breasts??
<@Cev> No swallows in Middle Earth.
<@Cev> He'd've had to march all the way down to the land of Harad to get any.
<@pharazon> sounds just like my marriage!!
<pthagphone> oh no i just fell into the hitler trap
<pthagphone> i thought
<pthagphone> HMM I WONDER IF THERE'S ANY SPECIFICALLY MIGRATION PERIOD GERMAN SOLAR ICONOGRAPHY, SOLAR ICONOGRAPHY IS COOL MB I WILL GET A TATTOO OF IT
<pthagphone> guess what
<pthagphone> guess what migration period solar iconography is guys
<@Whimemsz> "Though never sporting fashionable jargon, Victor has always taken on phenomena and issues that engage aspects of multiculturalism, hybridity, alterity, and the subaltern, while remarkably grounding his work in painstaking philological analysis." way to avoid fashionable jargon
<Slereah> I need a 500km long dick
<@Legion> the most interesting 'English has two words for this' imo is "fate" vs "doom"
<@Legion> French only has "destin" for both
<Slereah__> Doom is much more negative
<Slereah__> I can accept my fate
<Slereah__> But I cannot accept my DOOM
<Slereah__> I like how people always know Jack Sparrow wherever you go
<Slereah__> It's like if Pirates of the Carribean 12 was set in space
<Slereah__> And they meet some martian sailors
<Slereah__> And they meet the king of Mars for the first time
<Slereah__> "We were only looking for our friend Jack Sparrow"
<Slereah__> "JACK SPARROW!"
<Slereah__> He does get around
<Slereah> They don't realize that the worst kind of immigrants took their jobs
<Slereah> did you know that a mining drill doesn't even ask for any salary
<Whimemsz> oh no
<Slereah> They'll work for peanuts!
<Slereah> and take our women
<miekko> Slereah: miniaturized mining drills indeed have taken our women!
[come at me, i'm quoting myself again]
<@Cev> Thet was thet erost bod: Deus tuus unus est. Thin God thet is thi ena, ther skippere is himulrikes and irthrikes, tham skaltu thiania.
<@Cev> Thet was thet other bod: Non assumas nomen Dei tui in vanam. Thu ne skalt thines Godis noma nawet idle untfa; thermithi sund'ti urbeden alle menetha.
<@Cev> Thet was thet thredde bod: Sanctifica diem sabbati. Thu skalt firia thene helega sunnandi, hwante God him reste, tha hi eskipin hede himulrike and irthrike, therumbe skaltu ierne firia thene helega sunnandi.
<@Cev> Thet was thet fiarde bod: Honora patrem tuum et matrem tuam. Thu skalt eria thinne feder and thine moder, thettu theste langor libbe.
<@Cev> Thet was thet fifte bod: Non occides. Thu ne skalt nenne monslaga dwa.
<@Cev> Thet was thet sexte bod: Non mechaberis. Thu ne skalt nen hor tha nen overhor dwa, buta mith thinere afta wive skaltu godilike libba.
<@Cev> (I like that the commandment about adultery is called the "sexte bod")
<@Cev> Like hey
<@Cev> that other guy's wife sure has a sexte bod.
<@Slereah> she do
<@guitarplayer> that looks like some kind of … low german?
<@Cev> Old Frisian
<Slereah> "J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan (including the play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up and its novelisation Peter and Wendy) is covered by special legislation granting Great Ormond Street Hospital a right to royalties in perpetuity from commercial exploitation of the story on stage, in publication, and in broadcasts."
<Slereah> fuck that hospital and all its dying children
<Slereah> Being immortal would be fun
<Slereah> I'd just shoot myself in the head all the time
<Slereah> to be a drama queen
<Slereah> "Gee, this movie is SO BORING!"
<Slereah> Man I kinda hope Trump turns America into a fascist state just so they can stamp on Saizai
<Whimemsz> authoritarian governments have no tolerance for people trying to lug jugs of juice onto planes
<pthag[vajrapani]> Slereah, u can stamp on saizai any time u like
<Slereah> He will be sent to Guantanamo
<Slereah> He can drink all the juice he wants there
<Slereah> Through a cloth
<Slereah> I don't get "goodie two shoes"
<Slereah> is that not the appropriate number of shoes
<Slereah> it seems an odd thing to point out
<tiramisu> I'm more concerned with how do animals know that GROOMERS aren't hurting them?
<Slereah> because animals love grooming
<tiramisu> because we sure had a hard time convincing our dog that we weren't hurting him when we tried to groom him
<tiramisu> but he seemed OK when we hired a groomer
<Slereah> ur bad at grooming
<tiramisu> well it wasn't me
<tiramisu> also it depends on the grooming
<Slereah> your monkey ancestors are ashamed
<@Slereah> Is there something in the constitution that can automatically disqualify a president
<@Slereah> What if they found out that Trump held on to nobility titles from foreign powers???
<@Slereah> And he was actually King Trump
<tiramisu> yeah that would disqualify him
<tiramisu> there's a whole list of automatic disqualifications
<tiramisu> imagine the scandal if we ever found out he's actually under 35!
<@Slereah> or was born in Kenya
<@Slereah> or if he had been president twice before
<@Slereah> He was actually Bill Clinton
<@Slereah> that's why he hates Hillary so much
<@Slereah> "Under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment, no person who swore an oath to support the Constitution, and later rebelled against the United States, can become president. However, this disqualification can be lifted by a two-thirds vote of each house of Congress."
<@Slereah> Trump was General Lee all along
<Cevf> I don't understand the 14th amendment
<Cevf> I mean I understand the part that defines citizenship
<Cevf> But the main part of it I don't get
<Cevf> because it basically says, like, "You have to obey the rest of the laws written in the Constitution"
<Cevf> because apparently that wasn't clear before?
<Slereah> Maybe it's a state law thing?
<Cevf> Yes it is but that's my point
<Slereah> Like states can't make laws going against the constitution
<Cevf> Yes it is but that's my point
<Cevf> Why even have a Constitution if that's even an option?
<Slereah> So that you can brag about it
<Slereah> "Our state follows the constitution!"
<Cevf> How about you just have 1 Amendment: "Obey the laws of your respective states"
<Cevf> That seems to be effectively what they DID
<Slereah> Maybe it was the case before too, but it wasn't terribly enforced so they added this for emphasis
<Slereah> Maybe someone pulled an airbud on them
<Guest3907> I think that amendment is because reconstruction states were trying to say that blacks in their state weren't citizens of that state
<Slereah> "It's not written anywhere in the constitution that you have to obey the constitution!"
<Guest3907> it also kept confederate politicians out of the government
<Slereah> The Airbud Amendment
<@vlad> <Cevf> I don't understand the 14th amendment < I agree it is stupid
<Slereah> vlad confirmed for racist
<Cevf> fuck it
<Cevf> I'm adding "nuanced" to my list of forbidden words
<Guest34592> why?? can't handle nuances
<WurdBendur> cev likes to keep things simple
<Cevf> Can't handle the self-satisfaction of people talking about how their view is more nuanced than others'.
<WurdBendur> yes, that's right
<Guest34592> I just say it's better
<WurdBendur> let's speak out against this self-righteousness
<Cevf> Enough with the diatribes, Wurd.
<@pthag> ur all stomping ur feet
<@pthag> banned banned banned
<@pthag> scum and villany
<WurdBendur> you're a nazi
<Guest62009> do you think that if I went to the white house and held a gun to my head someone would get around to porting Civ II to modern PCs
<@tiramisu> mec didn't even say goodbye
<@tiramisu> so rude
<@tiramisu> oh wait he did
<@pharazon> still rude
<tiramisu> Naima Cevf's penis is shaped like
<Naima> Cevf's penis is shaped like a star of david lynch video game review of Pacman and he insinuates that the viewers probably have never played pacman on google maps today at the thrift store i saw a woman on the bridge."
<Slereah> Oy vey
<tiramisu> [[star of [david lynch]] video] or [[star of david][lynch video]]?
<Slereah> that's why we must all switch to lojban
<@Radius> the best place to build an island though, for sheer remoteness from anything else
<twanh> is in space?
<@Slereah> SPACE ISLAAAAND
<@Radius> is atop koko guyot, which is a seamount in the north pacific about halfway between hawaii and japan
<pthagnar> Also, the original Star Trek mostly shows the Enterprise crew being pretty competent, but now we're only allowed to have science explorer heroes if the focus is on the captain being unqualified for his rank.
<Slereah__> He is called Chuck Norris
<Slereah__> is that short for
<Slereah__> Charles Norris
<@tiramisu> I want to see if "good chapel boy pounding" is a combination of things or if someone (pthagnar) has said that whole phrase before
<Slereah> if Bilbo pees while invisible, at what point does his urine become visible
<@Legion> you know what's worst than "never forget"?
<@Legion> people calling something "The Forgotten X"
<@Slereah__> THE FORGOTTEN GENERATION
<@Legion> when that something is like the second most talked about X ever
<@Legion> (eg: calling the Armenian genocide "The Forgotten Genocide")
<@pharazon> i hired a few movers recently
<@pharazon> when they arrived they were black
<@Cevf> were they no longer black after they'd been there a while?
<Whimemsz> here's some good news to cheer you up then
<Whimemsz> http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-41574608 there's fewer vampires in Malawi now than before!
<Guest24991> the person I feel most bad for is the president of Malawi
<Guest24991> whoever they are, they are probably a very well-educated person who doesn't believe in vampires and just wants the country to succeed
<Guest24991> then this happens
<Guest24991> and he knows the boulder has rolled to the bottom of the hill
<@tiramisu> oh shit this Skyler guy is only 18
<@tiramisu> well, at least he's 18
<Whimemsz> http://www.nativetech.org/shinob/ojibwelanguage.html this is kind of weird
<Whimemsz> a collection of words in double-vowel orthography and ... random English-based spellings
<Cevf> what's the difference between "Greetings" and "Hello"
<@pharazon> the funny thing is that there's not even an english word for "Greetings"
<@pharazon> like you have a character in a movie say "Greetings!" to indicate that they're an alien
<Cevf> Handbook of Texas Supplement Volume III arrived in the mail
<Slereah> Does it have more injun tales
<Cevf> It has articles about approximately eighty-nine thousand obscure little Indian tribes
<Cevf> all written by T.N. Campbell
<Slereah> do you think he made some of them up
<Slereah> The bloopablorp tribe
<Slereah> Very friendly
<Slereah> They have 3 heads and worship a goose
<Whimemsz> Slereah, alias Herodotus
<Whimemsz> http://www.johnchaple.co.uk/dino.html this one is fun too
<Whimemsz> "Dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus Rex with their absurdly small fore-limbs would have hopped like kangaroos which also have small arms. "
<@Legion> well, there are serious studies on Tyrannosaurus that propose that they couldn't run but would indeed hop around more like certain birds, iirc
<Cevf> counterpoint, only small birds hop around
<Cevf> large birds don't
<Cevf> t-rex was a very large bird
<Slereah> Science has been trying to emasculate the T-Rex so much these past 20 years I wouldn't be surprised that they were announced to be small birds soon
<CUM_SIURAN> are small birds unmasculine?
<Slereah> Hence why they have names like tits
<Slereah> Or boobies
<Whimemsz> you know what's a masculine bird though
