<Ser> I'm trying to find an image of a girl with her breasts resting on a thick open book
<Ser> can't find any
<Ser> let's say I paid some girl to take a picture of herself with her tits out resting on a book
<Ser> what would be a good choice of book
<Tanaphor> A tale of two titties
<Tanaphor> it was the breast of times
<Tanaphor> it was the worst of times

<Ser> seriously though, no suggestions for the book other than Dickens?
<Tanaphor> Finnegan's Wank

<@Cev> Which is why I think the whole "arranged marriages in hunter-gatherers" thing is a red herring
<@Cev> when it comes to instinctive human female mate choice preferences
<@Cev> The instinct is clearly *there* and it didn't just spring out of nowhere
<@Cev> Those elephants must be using those tusks for SOMETHING
<tiramisu> maybe they're just for being pretty!

<@Cev> oh apparently there is a line in The Prisoner of Azkaban that explicitly says Hermione is white?
<Whimemsz> what's the line?
<@Cev> "Herminoe's white face was sticking out from behind a tree."
<Tanaphor> is there a line about Dumbledore's straight face, too?

<Yatalac> holy shit
<Yatalac> rhetorica
<Yatalac> i feel like i've seen the loch ness monster
<Rhetorike> we are all the loch ness monster

<@Cev> rhetorica was just quoting J Robert Oppenheimer
<@Cev> after the atomic bomb he said "Now we are all the loch ness monster"
<Rhetorike> yes
<Rhetorike> we are become loch ness, destroyer of f-stop
<@Cev> oh wait wikipedia says that it was Kenneth Bainbridge who said that
<Rhetorike> yeah, oppenheimer said the line i just quoted
<Whimemsz> oh, apparently Oppenheimer didn't say it at the time
<Whimemsz> I didn't know that
<Whimemsz> he just thought about it
<@pharazon> do you think he regretted not saying it
<@pharazon> i mean you don't get a chance like that very often
<@Cev> I bet he was going to but then Bainbridge stepped on his dick before he had the chance
<@Cev> and ruined the moment
<Whimemsz> yeah probably
<Whimemsz> what a jerk
<@pharazon> it was probably kind of awkward
<@pharazon> like they all had some line prepared
<@pharazon> and everyone tried to say theirs at the same time
<@Cev> yeah like I bet Fermi was all ready to quote the line from the Bible where it talked about God punishing the unbelievers with loch ness monsters

<Smaug> I'm reading a book about Minas Gerais during the first republic
<Smaug> it turns out that the state was very boring.
<Smaug> in other states you had communists and anarchists running amok

<@pharazon> First republic
<@pharazon> Was that after the line of Gondor failed

<Vore Vidal> It seems that speakers of Maltese came to feel that all loan verbs must have an initial geminate consonant,whether or not this was actually true of the item being borrowed.This state of affairs manifests itself rather spectacularly in more recent borrowings from English (Type D verbs), in which initial consonants are duly geminated (despite this never being the case in the English source items), but which also fall into the conjugation class of weak-final verbs, as in ddawnlowdja ‘to down-load’.

H13: is because the north was Goddam Empty
H13: so nobody was there to stop the runaway morphologization
Yng: and so their ancestors passed time
Yng: by coining new morphemes
Yng: they spent so long wondering if they COULD grammaticalise everything.....
Yng: they never took the time to ask if they SHOULD

Yng: greenlandic is so excellent
Yng: it has the kind of fairly insane morphophonology you only get when you have about 5,000 speakers
Whimemsz: see, morphophonology doesn't phase me
Whimemsz: because I have seen Athabaskan
Whimemsz: so Greenlandic is like, "meh"
Yng: whimemsz has seen morphemic alternations that man should not have wot of
H13: if you stare into the tanacross
H13: the tanacross stares back at you
Yng: he's seen monosegmental morphemes disappear into a swirling maelstrom of apparently unrelated phonemes
Yng: he's seen.......... navajo
Whimemsz: Lovecraft has written a short story on it

<barsuga-phone> There is that whole Penis Panick thing
<barsuga-phone> Something that the primitive tribesmen and the far right believe in
<barsuga-phone> Estrogen in soy is the modern version of witches stealing your penis

<Cev> The title of this map
<Cev> "La Virginea Pars"
<Cev> what... what language is taht supposed to be?
<Legion> Cev > that looks like a mix of a romance language and latin, it's weird
<CUM_SIURAN> make it illa and it's probably grammatical
<Legion> it would still need a genitive
<Legion> illae virginiae pars
<Legion> but that would mean "part of this virginia"
<Legion> so the correct latin would just be "virginiae pars"
<Cov> i mean probably not worth thinking about too hard
<Cov> the guy who named it seems just to have not really understood romance
<Legion> well it's kinda intriguing
<Legion> even if it's just Bad Latin
<miekko> Legion: is this a tribute to Lady Gaga?
<miekko> given that bad latin is a precursor to bad romance!

<Legion> there's a lot of unsustainable thing in China like
<Legion> having completed their demographic transition before having actually become a rich country
<Legion> that's going to be a killer bug
<Legion> fully developped countries are already flailing around trying to find solution to deal with their aging population
<Legion> in China it's going to be a catastrophe
<barsuga-phone> You know what would solve it though
<barsuga-phone> A virus that kills old people
<barsuga-phone> 🤔

<Barsuga> the downside of the epidemic that may kill us all
<Barsuga> My mom is in full mom mode
<Barsuga> she is sending me all the advice, essential oil and positive vibes she can
<pthag> which oils
<Barsuga> She only threatened to get me some, but so far I have not gotten any
<Barsuga> So I cannot be sure

<Barsuga> "TP rolls will be worth their weight in gold in a few months, because everyone needs it."
<Izambri> Also, the perfect time to introduce a new coin: the rollcoin
<Izambri> alternatively, the "loocoin"

<tiramisu-WFH> also to be fair to the Jews who killed my one great-grandfather
<tiramisu-WFH> that great-grandfather had a Hitlerstache when he was killed

<barsuga-phone> You know I wish nowadays christians were more into believing magic
<barsuga-phone> They always try to justify how the stories make sense even with science
<barsuga-phone> Just tell me that god did it with magic
<barsuga-phone> It's a more cogent argument

<@pharazon> But
<@pharazon> Isn’t it at least a LITTLE surprising that the odds of two random integers having no common factor is 6/pi^2
<Smaug> sorry, I am just a primitive
<Smaug> I found a rock that looks a little like a face today and now I worship it

<tiramisu> I have one more week of Lent :(
<Legion> oh you have a lot more than that ;)
<Legion> provided you were smart and gave up on "social contect"
<tiramisu> I read sexuality into that
<pharazon> giving up going to church for lent is a real 200 IQ move

<barsuga-phone> Why are moths so fuzzy
<barsuga-phone> I wish to pet them

<Barsuga> "The only point of life is to fuck girls with nice fat asses. Everything else is cope."
<Barsuga> Incels tend to have very specific goals for life on earth
<pharazon> so why isn't he doing it..
<Barsuga> he is unfit for life
<Barsuga> I fuck girls with fat asses every day
<Barsuga> Ms. Pharazon
<Barsuga> is her name
<Orassos> and she's plural, is she
<twabs> no relation
<Barsuga> Orassos : her ass is that fat

<Barsuga> Also I've just had a horrible realization
<Barsuga> if they remake Back to the Future, it will happen in the 2020's, and Marty will have to go back to the 90's
<pharazon> cowabunga man
<Barsuga> Doc will get plutonium from ISIS
<Barsuga> And marty will be the DJ at his parent's party
<Barsuga> He will play some eurobeat or something
<Barsuga> And there will be a scene
<Barsuga> "Who's the president
<Barsuga> "Donald Trump"
<Barsuga> "Ah!"
<Barsuga> what a silly notion

<Barsuga> "The gospel of Matthew claims that Jesus was taken to Egypt as an infant, this was actually used by hostile sources to explain his knowledge of magic; according to one rabbinical story, he came back tattooed with spells"
<@Cev> That happens to all tourists who visit Egypt.
<Barsuga> I mean why else visit Egypt
<Barsuga> It's like visiting Thailand, you immediatly know why they went

<Barsuga> I haven't received my check yet

<@Cev> who's in charge of france?

<@Cev> Do they still add stuff to the vatican archives
<@Cev> Does a secretary have to carry a box of papers down and throw it on the pile?
<barsuga> I guess so
<barsuga> What else would they do with their office supply bills and papal bullae
<barsuga> Do you think it's a mess in there like
<barsuga> Ancient scrolls next to floppy disks

<Barsuga> I can think of republican food and green party food, but what is libertarian food
<Barsuga> Do they just sprinkle cocaine on food
