<Ser> CUM_SIURAN: to be fair, I was looking at the list of interests Google had detected I have (you can look at such a list if you search for things while logged in with your gmail)
<Ser> and one of them was "women's interests"
<Tanaphor> like shopping
<CUM_SIURAN> see even google thinks you should come out as a transwoman

<slereah-work> Also from what I remember the ancient greeks were crying and reciting poems all the time at war
<slereah-work> sounds pretty psychologically fragile to me
<Cev> yeah but mostly they were crying about the fact that they couldn't go to war as often as they wanted
<slereah-work> let's look up suicide in ancient greece
<slereah-work> "a man, who is one of the god’s possessions, should not kill himself ‘until the god sends some compulsion upon him, as he sends compulsion on us at present’"
<slereah-work> THE GODS!
<slereah-work> there doesn't seem to be a lot of "suicide because I'm sad"
<slereah-work> Well, for men anyway
<slereah-work> Mythological ladies do it a lot
<slereah-work> There's a dude
<slereah-work> "Glaucus drowned in the sea as a result of his sadness over Melicertes' fate"
<slereah-work> "Aminias buried a dagger in his own chest at Narcissus' doorstep after Narcissus spurned his advances"
<slereah-work> "Chryssipus killed himself out of shame after being raped by Laius when he was just a child"
<slereah-work> pretty rough
<slereah-work> Apparently drowning was the most popular method of suicide
<slereah-work> and hanging
<slereah-work> "They considered that the discrepancy of humors in the organ of logic in the human body will cause malfunction, which will lead to the absurdity and consequently to suicide, either due to excessive concentration of black bile in melancholia or due to yellow bile in mania."
<slereah-work> Help my humors are out of whack
<slereah-work> "They believed that greater risk to commit suicide had women, young people and the elderly. As therapy they used the drugs of their time with the intention to induce calm and repression in the ill person, therefore they mainly used mandragora."
<slereah-work> "In general, we would say that there were many reasons to suicide someone in antiquity."
<slereah-work> Linguists
<slereah-work> Help me parse "to suicide someone"

<Tanaphor> how is wolf fur btw
<Tanaphor> is it coarse or soft
<Whimemsz> the guard hairs are coarse
<Whimemsz> the underfur is soft
<Whimemsz> but so the normal sensation of petting a wolf would be that it's fairly coarse
<Whimemsz> you'd have to dig in there to get to the soft part
<Tanaphor> I'll dig in
<@Cev> giggity
<Tanaphor> I'm guessing giving a wolf a giant squeeze is not advised
<Tanaphor> one of those retard strength hug
<Whimemsz> no
<Whimemsz> they really don't like that
<Tanaphor> Even dogs don't I hear, really
<Tanaphor> Wolves are probably less good sports about it
<Whimemsz> or being wrapped around the neck or anything else like that
<Tanaphor> I guess wolves don't have our simian ways~
<Tanaphor> Carrying youngs by hugging them in our brachiating arms

<Tanaphor> Let's all learn klingon
<Tanaphor> and then we go to a con
<Tanaphor> Dressed head to toe in space garbs
<@Cev> let's just learn Miwok or something
<@Cev> then show up to a Star Trek con and speak Miwok
<@Cev> and see if anyone notices
<@Cev> we'll tell them it's Klingon
<Tanaphor> Do we dress up as indians?
<Tanaphor> That might go poorly
<@Cev> nah man
<@Cev> you're half jewish or something and i'm 1/64th Scots or something so we're both PoC
<Tanaphor> Plus we can claim to be indians
<Tanaphor> Like
<Tanaphor> 100% indians
<Tanaphor> how will they prove us wrong
<Tanaphor> If they say we don't look indian they will be racists
<Whimemsz> demand our blood quantum certificates
<Whimemsz> I guess we can say we left them at home
<Whimemsz> back on the rez
<Tanaphor> or we forge them
<Tanaphor> in our teepees
<@pharazon> It's important to believe PoC and hear their voices
<Tanaphor> plus we don't need to prove anything to those white devils

<pthag> CUM_SIURAN, as a european u usually learn not to take americans seriousl
<pthag> when they have like
<pthag> opinions about europe
<pthag> cev what do u think about europe
<@Cev> pthag: ant water
<@Cev> fuck it
<pthag> that's a great opinion :)
<twabs> a...nt water?
<@Cev> yes twabs
<@Cev> in Europe they don't have regular water
<Tanaphor> let's drink a tall glass of ant water
<@Cev> like us sons of the forest here in America
<@Cev> they drink ant water
<@Cev> a corrupted water
<twabs> that's a damn shame, Cev
<@Cev> (ant water is what I call the carbonated water that you get in Europe if you ask for "water")
<@Cev> (because it stings my throat going down like ants biting my oesophagus)
<CUM_SIURAN> you can get that in america
<Tanaphor> you must ask for
<CUM_SIURAN> I'm drinking a la croix literally right now
<Tanaphor> *flat water*
<@Cev> Ques: you CAN yes
<@Cev> but
<@Cev> in Europe
<@Cev> it's all you can get
<@Cev> You just ask for "water" and they give you ant water
<Whimemsz> that sounds awful
<@Cev> This happened to me many times and it was very blustering
<Whimemsz> I hate carbonated water
<CUM_SIURAN> I like it
<Whimemsz> terrible
<CUM_SIURAN> drink it all the time
<pthag> this is why u don't listen to americas
<@Cev> pthag does the UK have the antwater problem
<pthag> i don't know. i don't perceive it as a problem.
<@Cev> Right.
<@Cev> You're like all the rest.
<@Cev> More ant than man.

<Isambrie> another one of his movies is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Curse_of_the_Cat_People
<Isambrie> " Its plot follows Amy, a young girl who befriends the ghost of her father's deceased first wife, Irena, a Serbian fashion designer who descended from a race of people who could transform into cats"
<Isambrie> convoluted
<Tanaphor> The classic story
<Tanaphor> a tale as old as time

<Ser> I'm quite out of the loop with this stuff. I had never heard about stereotype threat until today~
<Ser> so, a person does worse because they believe the stereotype about their group identity they know is just a stereotype?
<Tanaphor> Is stereotype threat when a black man with a knife threatens you

<@Cev> Saulteaux as "nonwarring" but Gros Ventres as "warring"
<@Cev> this "Fry" guy has absolutely no fucking idea what he's talking about
<Whimemsz> lol
<Whimemsz> I'm curious who this "Fry" guy is
<Whimemsz> http://kropfpolisci.com/peace.studies.fry.pdf ah
<Whimemsz> ""These people [the Saulteaux] have never engaged in war with the whites or with other Indian tribes.""  let's see what his source for this quote is
<Whimemsz> "For the Saulteaux: A. Irving Hallowell, "Aggression in Saulteaux society," in A.  I.  Hallowell (ed.), Culture and Experience, 277—90 (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press,  1974),  278."
<Whimemsz> pffff
<Whimemsz> Hallowell was an ethnographer writing in the mid-20th century, not a historian
<pthag> the germans are a nonwarring tribe
<pthag> based on my five years fieldwork in lucerne
<pthag> extremely peaceful cacao and sundial economy

<Whimemsz> I didn't have the impression he was a giant fatso though
<Tanaphor> he washes himself with a rag on a stick
<Whimemsz> I like that that's a standard way of referring to extremely fat people
<@Cev> How do you wash yourself?
<Tanaphor> I don't
<Tanaphor> I am French

<Ser> Naima lord of the jizz
<Naima> lord of the jizz than develop for java libraries
<Ser> I bet the original quote that has "[do something with] jizz than develop for java libraries" is a good slerquote
<Whimemsz> !grepfile log (?i) jizz than develop
<Naima> No match found
<Ser> !grepfile log (?i) jizz than
<Naima> No match found
<Ser> does this even work
<Whimemsz> !grepfile log (?i) of the jizz
<Naima> [22:34:13] <@Slereah> We hear he's a whiz of the jizz
<tiramisu> !grepfile log (?i) jizz
<Naima> [04:42:52] <Slereah> i've been jizzed on it's not that bad, gee
<tiramisu> I wonder if anybody else has been logged talking about jizz or if it's all slereah
<tiramisu> !grepfile log (?i) jizz
<Naima> [14:15] <Zayk> hey the jizz guzzler
<tiramisu> welp

<pthag> well don't say i did not warn u
<pthag> i don't explicitly remember warning u
<pthag> but it sounds like the sort of thing i would do

<Naima> tanaphor is isharia's soul and body, thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the department of justice for lobbying work he did last year that “could be construed      [re-enter strepsiades with a cock under one arm and a leg)
<Isambrie> Strepsiades... is that a greek guy?
<@Tanaphor> it's a greek guy with a cock under his arm
<@pharazon> Doesn't really narrow it down

<@Cev> Time is symmetrical in classical physics
<@Cev> or something like that
<@Cev> Ask the guy with the thing in his butt if you want to know more

———————————————————
also, I found a few very old quotes recently that I may as well post (some of them may have been posted in different places in the distant past and I forgot, but whatever):

<Draycks> I know it sucks to be a virgin
<Draycks> but it might seriously be better
<Draycks> if you can just stop focusing on it
<CUM_quesa> I don't actually think about it all that often
<CUM_quesa> it just bothers me
<CUM_quesa> in the back of my mind
<@Cev> Let's talk about something else instead
<@Cev> Like uhh
<@Cev> Fire.
<@Cev> it's hot.
<CUM_quesa> hot
<@Cev> v hot
<CUM_quesa> like all the women who won't have sex with me :(
<CUM_quesa> :( :(

[ED NOTE: Christ, I'm old...]

[11:21] <vlad> Well.. it may not apply in the case of Spanish, but it can happen.
[11:22] <vlad> Things like the gay lisp have to start somewhere.
[11:22] <Whimemsz> Yes, but they don't happen by people imitating a king
[11:22] <nozaraph> Indeed
[11:22] <nozaraph> Presumably they'd be imitating a queen.

[19:28] <Pthag> On a whim I decided to check my lecture notes
[19:28] <Whimemsz> What do they say?
[19:28] <Pthag> And I see somebody has written "YOU HAVE A CAN ON YOUR HEAD"

<tiramisu-does-taxes> I mean if we can't agree that "divorce" when people use it is typically meant to mean "civil divorce" then I don't think we're going to come to a common foundation for this argument.
<pthag> it sounds like LIBERALISM to me
<pthag> also even if civil divorce is tolerated
<pthag> this has no basis for meaning there is a divorce in shariah
<tiramisu-does-taxes> shariah marriage and divorce is the most civil religious marriage and divorce I've ever heard of
<tiramisu-does-taxes> there's like 0 theology underlying it

<slereah-work> hey Cev
<Cev> mm
<slereah-work> What's up
<Cev> sky
<slereah-work> Not wrong
<slereah-work> unless you're in space
<slereah-work> in which case it may be down
<Isambri> is the sky falling, in your region?
<Isambri> chemtrails, maybe?
<Isambri> flying pigs?
<Karch> flying birds?
<slereah-work> Falling sky is an old French tradition
<Isambri> as you can read in Asterix
<Isambri> https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_ciel_lui_tombe_sur_la_t%C3%AAte

<dhok> and today we were reminded that
<dhok> while [kɔ̃] is the regular *portuguese* reflex of Latin *cum 'with'
<dhok> it is the regular *french* reflex of *cunnus 'vagina'
<dhok> whoooooops
<slereah-work> with vagina
<Isambri> CUM_CUNNUS
<dhok> i ordered a bagel vagina cream cheese
<Isambri> slurp
<Isambri> Lat. vagina gave Cat. beina "sheath, scabbard"
<Isambri> from an older baina (a stressed), from baína (i stressed)
<Isambri> 'scabbard: sheath for large blades'
<Isambri> *malicious-perv smile*
<Karch> after all Czech "pochva" means "blade sheath, vagina"

<Whimemsz> also I see Zompist has a new language out
<Whimemsz> "A scattering of words derives from Hindī, e.g. wala ‘person’." Just call it "Hindi" in English, Zompist, ffs
<Cev> I am offended on behalf of the people of भारत that Zompist didn't write that out in devanagari.
<Cev> Fucking colonizing mleccha!
<Whimemsz> repulsive
<Isambri> well, if that isn't cultural appropriation I don't know what it is
<Isambri> I mean, we shouldn't write such names in their original scripts. In fact neither the transliterated names in the Roman alphabet.
<Isambri> Nor the adapted (anglicised) versions of those names.
<Cev> izambri is right
<Cev> this is that "copenhagen interpretation" again
<Isambri> We should create a completely new set of names (toponyms and demonyms) to refer to foreign peoples, specially former colonies and native peoples
<Isambri> like PIE peoples not referring to bears and wolves with their real names
<Isambri> because, you know, sacred and scary shit
<guitarplayer> honeyeaters
<Isambri> that's a nice one, thank you
<Whimemsz> more creative than "brown"

<guitarplayer> so after months of drinking tapwater, I just stuck with it
<guitarplayer> since the tapwater here is reasonably good
<guitarplayer> and lugging some 9 kg of bottled water every couple of weeks also sucks
<Tanaphor> German man discovers drinking water
<guitarplayer> the thing is, my family's usually had antwater

<Whimemsz> "A joke dated c. AD 400, recently translated from Greek, shows similarities to the Parrot sketch. It was written by Hierocles and Philagrius and was included in a compilation of 265 jokes titled Philogelos: The Laugh Addict. In the Greek version, a man complains to a slave-merchant that his new slave has died. The slave-merchant replies, "When he was with me, he never did any such thing!"[9]"
<Whimemsz> that's a quality ancient joke

<Cev> If you and I were to play chess
<Cev> and if you were to intentionally maneuver me such that I cannot make any movies whatsoever without placing my king into check (which is illegal)
<Cev> What is that?
<Cev> You win, right?
<pthag> that is called checkmate
<Cev> Yes.
<Cev> That is called checkmate.
<Cev> And you win.
<Cev> this fucking stupid fucking chess app I got on my fucking phone
<Cev> thinks that that is stalemate
<Cev> and is a "draw"
<pthag> well
<Cev> You can call it "stalemate" if you want
<pthag> did it happen after like n repeated iterations
<Cev> But it is not a fucking draw
<pthag> of the same move
<Cev> No
<pthag> idk the autistic details of stalemate
<pthag> do u still have the board

<Cev> I do get confused when people talk about like, bubble universes
<Cev> It always seems like from what they say that the universe should have an edge
<Cev> and I'm like ok what's at the edge
<Cev> is it a wall?
<Cev> a big beautiful wall?
<Cev> is it heaven?
<Cev> maybe it's heaven
<miekko> imagine a situation where the universe forms some kind of closed surface
<miekko> e.g. a 3-sphere or a 3-torus or somesuch
<Cev> Right, it doesn't— at least SEEM to me— that that's what they mean though
<miekko> this is at least an interpretation that should make sense
<miekko> now, we could imagine there being other universes with similar topologies
<miekko> existing in some kind of "meta-universe"
<miekko> heck, maybe even a flat plane universe
<miekko> that extends forever in this meta-univesre
<miekko> anyways, so
<miekko> we could imagine strange things like a spherical universe embedded within a spherical universe
<miekko> or a spherical universe within a toroidal universe
<miekko> toroidal universes that pass through each other's "holes"
<Cev> giggity
<miekko> these universes are called 'gay' universes
<Cev> Is that the technical term used by cosmologists?
<miekko> yes.
<miekko> they seriously hope we do not live in such a universe.
<Izambri> homophobic
<Cev> Yeah me too
<miekko> in case we do, the catholic church has prepared an ARSEnal of weapons of mass destruction to utterly destroy the universe
