<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> what a silly notion
H13: my conlangspiration is a japanese dictionary tbh
Yng: that's because you're a pervert h13
H13: the phrases section is always a goldmine
Yng: you like to take semantic inspiration from sentences like your_noble_servant TOP testicle NOM tentacle FROM tickle-do-excessively_formal-NOM 'I enjoyed this anime'
Yng: learning turkish taught me that once you get past a certain uhm
Yng: what would you call it
Yng: critical mass of suffixes on verbs
Yng: it becomes really easy to innovate new morphology
Yng: you can just v relaxedly acquire morphemes meaning stupid things like 'ever since I did [this one perfective action]'
H13: i assume the reason north america is Like That
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> 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"
<Barsuga> Izambri : they already have that in Canada
<Barsuga> the Loonie
<tiramisu> !gpt Barsuga's latest twitter account is
<Naima> Barsuga's latest twitter account is titled "Ain't Nothing But a Girl" and features several photographs of her wearing glasses, smiling, and being held by children at kindergartens in Japan in September 2017, all using the hashtag "#sutomikotojin." The caption says, "A girl on a summer night. The same girl who can smile at anything. She's got a sweet personality that we just can't say no to." It also features an image of the same smiling girl with
<Barsuga> dammit Naima
<Barsuga> I told you this in confidence
<tiramisu> !gpt What was Barsuga doing at kindergartens in Japan?
<Naima> What was Barsuga doing at kindergartens in Japan? And where did those kids eat lunch every single day?! I have never been so confused as I was in those two moments… The first I asked myself 'what's so great about being in kindergarten?' The second? 'why does everyone keep sending their son and daughter to live and work abroad in a foreign country?' But for both me, it all just came down to a few minutes of awkward questioning… The Japanese
<tiramisu> !gpt Here is Barsuga's deepest darkest secret:
<Barsuga> My secrets D:
<Naima> Here is Barsuga's deepest darkest secret: I have feelings for you. Deep, dark feelings. I feel them like a weight on my chest. I must confess that deep down, I feel a romantic and physical attraction toward you. But as much as I would love to see you for myself, there is a very small age difference between me and you. And since my family is from another country and our social status in Japan is lower, such feelings are very hard to express. I nev
<Barsuga> I love you too Naima <3
<Whimemsz> JAPAN AGAIN
<Whimemsz> first it was him at kindergartens
<Whimemsz> then a confession of love involving an "age difference"
<tiramisu> !gpt So what Barsuga was doing in Japan was
<Naima> So what Barsuga was doing in Japan was completely alien to him. That alone should cause serious suspicion. On top of that he is using a strange word to cover up a secret. The word that appears only twice in the entire manga has more information then Barsuga or the translator ever could. If you are a fan of Japanese manga or manga in general you know that each panel in a manga is typically called a "page". It does not say page in Japanese, however,
<Whimemsz> WHAT WERE YOU DOING IN JAPAN DAMMIT
<Barsuga> Sorry Whimemsz
<pthag> !gpt Rumours have emerged that Barsuga is part of a Satanic Japanese
<Barsuga> That is a secret between me and the kindergarten
<Naima> Rumours have emerged that Barsuga is part of a Satanic Japanese cult which believes that their god exists as three separate creatures in a physical existence. A cult song was recently released called: 'The Four World War Three' The song, which is accompanied by videos of cult members screaming, burning candles and chanting: "Our lord! Our lord has arrived!" is thought to be an anti-Christian propaganda song from Japanese cult The Black Sheep.
<pharazon> the black sheep
<pharazon> it all fits
<Cov> The list of ten oldest people ever has driven out everyone under the age of 117
<Cov> I remember when there were 115s on that list
<Cov> There seems to be a pretty hardcoded asymptote at about 117.9 years or so
<Cov> I'm thinking maybe Sarah Knauss (119 years) is a faker too
<Cov> along with Jeanne Calment
<Cov> meanwhile the oldest men ever list still has 113s on it. lol Pathetic! #HeForShe #ImWithHer #MeToo #KillAllMen
<Barsuga> All the men die from stunts and pranks
<pharazon> worth it
<Cov> Jiroemon Kimura died in a tragically fatal snowboarding accident at age 116
<Cov> Christian Mortensen died trying to slap a kodiak bear in the ass at age 115
<Barsuga> That's what you get, living on the edge
<Whimemsz> how widespread is the thing where you have to raise mealworms as kid in elementary school?
<Whimemsz> did you guys have to do that?
<Barsuga> I did not
<Barsuga> I don't think we had any living animals in class, rly
<Play> not me
<Whimemsz> you missed out on the wonder of...having a box full of mealworms for a while
<Cov> I had a box full of superworms for a while
<Cov> they're like mealworms but bigger
<Barsuga> Cov : What are their powers
<Cov> They transform into beetles
<Cov> Can you transform into a beetle?
<Cov> See, I'm not even impressed
<Cov> Because I've seen superworms
<Cov> getting annoyed by the vocabulary selection of John Lawson's short vocabulary of Pamlico
<Cov> it's all shit like "rum", "gunpowder", "shot", "tobacco", "coat", "gun-lock", "belt"
<Cov> Lawson you frontiersman fuck
<Cev> (I don't like boiling water)
<pharazon> why not
<Cev> takes a while for water to boil, then I had to drain it through a strainer
<Cev> and.. other things
<Cev> like I don't want to complain becuase it's simple compared to other things
<pharazon> it could take even longer
<pharazon> check your altitude privilege
<Cev> I don't get that joke because I don't understand science.
<pharazon> i get it because i fucking love science
<Barsuga> What if the true religion is some shitty religion nobody remembers
<Barsuga> mb the hurrians were right
<Barsuga> Plz worship Šauška
<Barsuga> Šauška's wager
<pharazon> what's the u-word
<Barsuga> pharazon : it is too terrible to say
<Barsuga> It's the original PIE word for bear
<Whimemsz> so [REDACTED] caught some video of a jaguarundi on one of his camera traps
<Cev> you shouldn't poop on jaguars when they're changing their clothes
<Cev> I meant to say peep
<Cev> ya know
<Cev> it worked out
