→ SHYPOWER ha entrat
<Radius> goodnight
<Tanaphor> night
<SHYPOWER> this room of ke is about
<Tanaphor> What
<Tanaphor> ?
<guitarplayer> inofficial hangout place for oldbies from an earlier iteration of verduria.org, basically
<Tanaphor> all approved by our lord Zompist
<SHYPOWER> ok i go out

#isharia / 31-gen-2019
<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"
<Whimemsz> at least

<Cev> there
<Cev> new blog post
<Cev> i hate it
<Whimemsz> I'll read it anyway
<Cev> Thanks Mom

<Cev> Actually nvm.
<Cev> I don't want to feed the balrog.
<Tanaphor> who is
<Tanaphor> the balrog
<Tanaphor> is it pthag
<pthag> i am come
<Cev> Yes.
<Tanaphor> Sorry pthag
<Ser> pthag is become the fiend
<Tanaphor> no food today
*CUM_SIURAN throws pthag some balrog-food*
<Tanaphor> He am become death, destroyer of worlds
<pthag> wizards
<Cev> War am bad.
<pthag> cev are u using me as a superego again
<Isambri> *pthag confirmed for balrog*

<Isambri> we need to sistematize it
<CUM_SIURAN> *systematize
<Isambri> *sistematitzise, actually
<Cev> Isambri teach me how to speak Catalan.
<Tanaphor> Please Cev
<Cev> How do you say "Hello my name is Cev"?
<Isambri> Cev, just say "lalalalrlrlrlrlrrlalalala"
<Tanaphor> It's hard enough to get Isambri to shut up about Catalan when nobodt asks
<Cev> What a beautiful language :')

<guitarplayer> ever since I returned from Canada I've preferred tapwater
<guitarplayer> because you don't usually get carbonated water in America it seems
<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
<guitarplayer> and since that is normal here, I didn't really question it

<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]"

<Smaug> I once threw an open container of apple sauce at someone as my bus was leaving in a Friday afternoon in high school

<pthag> cev
<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
<pthag> or did u throw ur phone into a piece of agriculture

<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
<Izambri> "Darling I hope our universe isn't gay"

<pthag> VIOLET              YELLOW
<pthag>  BLUE GREEN
<pthag> and u will observe it goes mario _____ wario luigi _____ waluigi
<pthag> and so ppl have tried to fill in the blank with theoretical particles
<pthag> however, the two missing places are blue and orange
<pthag> which are obviously tails and sonic
<pthag> u will agree that this explains all phenomena in a much more pasimonious manner

<Tanaphor> I'm guessing they couldn't get the original actor for Bambi's dad because he's probably been dead for 50 years


<Izambri> I recommend you all Henry James' The Sacred Fount. You'll hate it.


<Ser> regard can mean manhole in French
<yng> ahh I see
<Ser> not surprising
<yng> can it?
<Whimemsz> the French are manhole experts, just ask Slereah


<tiramisu> hey did the bees ever come back?
<tiramisu> I heard they were having a comeback
<tiramisu> but I haven't heard any updates on that comeback
<Cevv> Yeah Honey Nut Cheerios saved them all.
<tiramisu>
<tiramisu> :'D
<Cevv> We need to start a letter-writing campaign to get Honey Nut Cheerios to #BringBackTheGarterSnakes
<Cevv> If our leaders aren't going to get anything done, then it's time we turn to cereal companies.
<tiramisu> but I haven't yet ended my letter-writing campaign to get Honey Nut Cheerios to #ImpeachTrump


<Play> tomorrow itll say "Did You Know .... the Voynich manuscript has been deciphered? And it only took 2 hours!"
<Tanaphor> Someone noticed that we've been holding it upside down the whole time
<Tanaphor> and it was actually plain english


<cevv> People treat everything as if it's a new phenomenon
<Tanaphor> That reminds me of that maymay
<Tanaphor> About a LIFEHACK
<Tanaphor> And the lifehack was that if u plant tomato seeds u get more tomatoes


<Slereah> the brain is the butt of the soul, guitarplayer


<dhok> wonder what his native language was
<dhok> gaulish?
<dhok> when did gaulish die out
<Tanaphor> 1970


<@Legion> "Missionary works in Nias such as those performed by the German Protestant Rhenish Missionary Society as well as the Roman Catholics had been responsible to the destruction of Niassan wooden statues as well the suppression of unique culture of Nias society e.g. ancestor worship, magical practices, the Owasa festivals (noblemen rank-elevation festivals) headhunting and slave trading."
<@Legion> what a sentence
<@Legion> at first you're like "that's awful" and then "wait..."


<@Cev> At least it isn't a past tense imperative though
<@Cev> That would be dumb
<Radius> are you kidding
<Radius> i feel the lack of past tense imperative all the time on the internet
<@Cev> really?
<Radius> English is lacking in ways to tell someone to have fucked off long ago

<Ser> well, Brazil still has hunter-gatherer tribes in the Amazon
<Ser> are they taxed
<Smaug> no
<Smaug> they have some kind of sovereignty
<Smaug> because there are still, like, Indians who still bury children alive to appease the spirits or something
<Smaug> […] stopping it is controversial
<Ser> Chesterton's Fence, guys

<Play> hmm
<Play> Im writing about a war whose winning side is an all-male army whose ideology states that only women can hold power in the government and that men must always obey their wives
<Play> i didnt really think this through

<Tanaphor> I have met many cosmic entities
<Tanaphor> during the travels to the astral plane
<Tanaphor> mostly they go on about nonsense
<pthag> much like material entities
<Tanaphor> So far no cosmic wisdom
<Tanaphor> v. disappointing
<pthag> the problem is u
<pthag> if u were mystical enough u could evoke cosmic wisdom fom every day dreams and events
<Tanaphor> Entirely too prosaic alas
<pthag> i am so mystical that i have a cut on my hand that keeps bleeding except instead of mystery blood it bleeds chocolate
<pthag> solve this mystery if u can
<Tanaphor> are u a gingerbread man

<Tanaphor> When the normies make a flag it's gonna look more like the Hezbollah flag
<Tanaphor> https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/08/Flag_of_Hezbollah.svg
<Tanaphor> Just raw text, guns and thunderous erections
<Tanaphor> they care not for vexillology and common decency
<Tanaphor> "The logo also incorporates several other objects, namely a globe, a book, a sword, and a seven-leafed branch."
<Tanaphor> None of those objects explain the thunderous erection
<Tanaphor> why won't they address it
<Ser> well, it doesn't look much like an erection
<Ser> in contrast with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Revolutionary_Guard_Corps
<Tanaphor> Are you refering to the Iran vagina
<Tanaphor> apparently the Iran vagina is a very stylized Allah
<Tanaphor> Is there any occult significance to this
<Tanaphor> Oh wait
<Tanaphor> If you look very closely at it it's actually a vagina and also a sword going in a butt
<Tanaphor> Fraught with symbolism
<pthagphone> islamic occultism is its own game
<Whimemsz> Fraught, Lisa...or Freud?
<Tanaphor> Sometimes a sword going in a butt is just a sword going in a butt

<cevv> In a thousand years English will be an extinct and undocumented language and the only recordings of it will be Hanson and Bone Thuz N Harmony songs
<Legion> thousand years seem short
<Legion> surely after spoken English has passed away written English will linger as the liturgical language of baptists for a millenia or two
<cevv> Lec: Yes but they'll lose all of their bibles
<cevv> So they'll end up desperately trying to phonetically recite Hanson and Bone Thugz N Harmony lyrics
<cevv> wondering what secrets they hold

<dhok> you can become a congresscritter at 25 in the house
<dhok> senator at 30
<dhok> pthag is there any minimum age requirement for MPs
<pthag> probably
<pthag> i doubt they would let a toddler be an mp
<pthag> but who can say
<dhok> that historical primary source Blackadder informs me that william pitt the younger was nine
<dhok> at the time of his premiership
<pthag> you're forgetting william pitt the even younger
<dhok> oh yes
<dhok> do age requirements prevent prince andrew from bestowing seats in the Lords upon his lovers

<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
