Rest in peace, Syd Mead, industrial designer of futurisms, man of style, creator of visual art for Blade Runner, Tron and other films. May the future be as elegant and sophisticated as you depicted it!

<Cevt> There are— I guess?— cases in which depending on which anatomical feature you pick you can find synapomorphies supporting entirely irreconcilable trees
<Cevt> Leading one to only conclude that at various points in time a wizard visited earth and caused various lineages to independently evolve identical structures in differing samplings

<Tanaphor> I once looked up how they tested breast implants on animals
<Tanaphor> And was disappointed to find out they don't give rats a giant pair of tits
<CUM_SIURAN> of course you did
<CUM_SIURAN> of course you were

<pthag> barabbas is an exemplary scapegoat, because he committed the sins of israel
<Tanaphor> all of them?
<Tanaphor> He had a busy day

<Cev> i'm ready
<Cev> got my graham crackers and jug of milk and mountain dew
<Radius> okay rdy
<Cev> and I have toothpicks jammed in between each of my front bottom teeth because it gives me pseudosexual pleasure

<Barsuga> So Elisabeth Warren is surging in the polls
<Barsuga> Do you have any...
<Barsuga> ...reservations...
<Barsuga> about her
<pthag> totem
<pthag> polls

<Barsuga> My gang name is Ram Bam
<Ser> Barsuga: is that a double-joke on "ram [the] bum" and Maimonides?
<Barsuga> Ser : Also my fursona is a sheep
<Barsuga> It works on many levels

<Smaug_> a lot of these He-Man stories involve people trusting Skeletor, which is implausible in the sxtreme
<Smaug_> he's a purple man with a floating skull for a head who is always cackling
<Radius> sounds trustworthy enough to me
<Radius> he should challenge trump for the republican nomination, i bet he coud win it
<Smaug_> I'd vote for Skeletor
<Radius> note how his name anagrams to "elektors"

<miekko> Smaug2: what properties do we know pi to have?
<miekko> it seems we don't know it to be normal, though we strongly suspect it is
<Smaug2> well we know it's the circle number
<Smaug2> and if you remember any of the digits after 3.14 it's proof that you're smart
<Smaug2> also, there is evidence that it is not a normal number because you have to use a weird letter to write it
<Smaug2> hope this helps, miekko
<Whimemsz> I'm learning a lot here
<Smaug2> did I ever tell you that I minored in maths, whim
<Whimemsz> I don't think so
<Smaug2> that's because I didn't
<Whimemsz> makes sense then
<pharazon> even if it wasn't a weird letter
<pharazon> why use a letter at all
<pharazon> shouldn't you use numbers to write a number...

<CUM_SIURAN> Cevfr: your nick is slightly different every day
<Cevfr> You can't cross the same river twice.
<Barsuga> You can
<Barsuga> I have done so
<Ducane> Impossible
<Smaug> no, very possible
<Smaug> you do it once in the physical world, and again in your imagination
<pharazon> Maybe the river goes in a circle and the same water was flowing by the next time
<pharazon> What if it was frozen
<Smaug> Mathematician solves the paradox of the river with one simple trick! Philosophers hate him!
<pharazon> 😎

<Cevfr> It is possibly even more unfunny than the "Nobody:" joke
<pharazon> What is the joke
<Cevfr> Go to literally any youtube video and read the first 100 comments.
<CUM_SIURAN> it's more of a meme template than a joek
<Rad[]> yeah
<Rad[]> it highlights that something is coming from left field or random or unprompted, but i don't fully get the purpose of framing a bunch of things that way
<Cevfr> well what annoys me is how exaprevalent it is
<Cevfr> "the first 100 comments" is almost literally true in many cases
<Rad[]> is it possible for something to be only gigaprevalent
<Cevfr> yeah
<Cevfr> things like bacteria
<Cevfr> It goes mice < invertebrates < bacteria < members of the countably infinite set < unfunny jokes

I'm experimenting with making related languages look very dissimilar.

Kuymysiù tybhah mylaliù en kîhnhauh.
/kʷmsir tɓa̤h mlrlir ʔen ki̤jn̥a̤w/

Galddi xwi phunihngueban.
/ⁿgɔlɗi çwi pʰuniŋ̥ɯⁿbɔn/

I've been trying to do the same.

You'll have to upload it somewhere and then link it here. Annie does have some image hosting powers in universes that you can use for this purpose if you wish.
